......VAN SUSTEREN: So, is Speaker Gingrich right or are questions like these fair game? Back with Karl Rove. Karl, you know, I sort of, when you watch someone else do it, another member of the media, you sort of cringe a little bit. Im sure Im guilty myself of doing that, but Speaker Gingrich certainly didnt think that was the most important question going into Super Tuesday. But is it a fair question of the Speaker?
KARL ROVE: Well, God bless Speaker Gingrich for taking David Gregory out behind the barn and giving him a whooping.....................................................................
VAN SUSTEREN: Well, if nothing else, you would have thought that though he might have learned in sort of asking a question like thought of Speaker Gingrich because I remember one time Speaker Gingrich practically took the skin off John King at a CNN debate. I mean, its almost as though that were sort of handing the ball to Speaker Gingrich so that he can just shove it down our throats.
ROVE: Yeah, right. Well, you know, its sort of like Gingrich, you know, theyre both, John King, youre right, John King and David Gregory both threw sort of, you know, reared back on the pitchers mound and threw the ball, and theres Gingrich with the bat on his shoulder just sort of seeing the ball approach in slow motion then pounds it out of the park, and well he should. Im glad that he did it.
If he had a chance to malign Newt, he would took it. I don't trust him at all. He is always working political calculations. Thanks for sharing.
This is what is called the DC beltway Republicans taking out the Conservative candidates using another Republican candidate running... Just another instance of using Rove to do the dirty work. Geez, I hate all of those beltway creeps - they keep trying so hard to sway the election.
Which makes his inability to knife Newt in the back during this interview and his stumbling comments, all the more delicious.
I like her interviews. Her religion is her business.
It’s not just Newt! Rove is a beltway Republican looking out for his party and pulling for a candidate that will allow those inside the beltway to keep their power - ie, politics as usual. It is simply a power play.
Well, the RINO brigade has been worried about Santorum, and as Drudge showed last week, were trying to help revive Newt to split the conservative vote and help Romney. It’s probably going to work in Ohio, but that’s more from Santorum flailing than it is from Newt surging at this point. I’d vote for Santorum in Ohio tomorrow but in any other state I’d vote for Newt. The greatest threat to Romney and more importantly to Obama is a real resurgence of Newt.
Greta said that Newt handles the media with aplomb and tenacity and Rove had to reluctantly agree.
What’s not to love?
Take exchanges like this and enjoy them.
Which is why, in recent appearances, Mitt is arguing his fall back position going into Super Tuesday: Romney returns to argument of inevitability
That talking point clearly went out from the RNC this weekend. After the Washington win, the FOX panel fell all over themselves saying there’s no way they could pretend anymore that Mitt wasn’t the inevitable nominee.
Possibly could had been they were covering for themselves. Newt was surging in GA. The media had run stories w/Drudge too, for a solid week that Newt could lose Ga/ Rick could win GA (so maybe covering for this when Newt wins) The Huckabee forum was a plot to help Romney in Ohio. I think people in Ohio should vote for Newt. We are never going to get rid of Rick to have a one on one race with Romney. The 3 man race is keeping us from taking Romney down. Romney keeps rebuilding himself with the help of the RNC/ a helpful media, famous personalities and the pundits. Imo.
Tastes vary. She's unwatchable for me because of her bizarre belief system, embracing a strange cult that denies the divinity of Christ.
That said, and our disagreement aside on that matter, I'll be watching the Super Tuesday results with great anticipation, expecting a win (or should I say "Big Win") for Speaker Gingrich in Georgia. I am also hoping he gets victories in Tennessee, Ohio and pulls some surprises elsewhere. We need Newt Gingrich more than ever during these perilous times.
Is it me, or does Newt seem to have the demeanor of the Cheshire Cat lately? romney’s money softened Newt for santorum and he took full advantage of it kicking Newt when he was down. Now, Santorum is back on the whining trail and Newt is the cheerful warrior. It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.
Greta has the best show on Fox.
She consistently shoots straight and gives her guests the chance to finish entire thoughts uninterrupted.
The only other host I remember conducting his show as well was (yes) Geraldo Rivera.
Everyone MUST watch the Meet the Press interview in full. It’s the greatest moment in this campaign since Newt’s answers in the South Carolina debates.
I'd like to see Mitt and his meat grinding PAC take another shot at Newt. I think he's ready to let loose with both barrels. The electorate is annoyed with Mitt and his people carpet bombing the GOP field. They want to see the "inevitable" moniker wiped off Mitt's face.
THANK YOU for the LINK!
I hear complete thoughts (I can agree or disagree but I hear them make their points).
