Yep, and Gingrich and Sharpton are buds.

If you're looking for perfection this year, it ain't happening.

Newt has to know that attacking Santorum is only going to help Romney. Don’t know what your guy has up his sleeve but it’s nothing good for our “beloved republic”. He’s helping Romney, enough said.

CharlesWayne, I missed them thar robocalls. And I DON’T expect candidates to refrain from bringing another candidate’s record into play. You play the hand you’re dealt.

I’m not looking for a perfect candidate, just one who will try to change the inside the DC beltway government and culture. That man is Newt Gingrich.

Beating Obama is what will help our republic....Santorum wouldn’t and Newt has the best chance.

Why would Newt have the best chance of beating Obama? In that one debate (FL I think) where Romney came after Newt, Newt crumbled. Obama’s going to have a lot more “past ghosts” to throw at Newt than Romney. And Newt was furious when the negative false advertising cost him IA but that was baby doo doo next to what O’s gonna toss out there.

We’ll see but so far Rick has taken much more fire from all sides and survived. Right now all three are running campaigns against him, Romney, Paul, and Newt. If he can survive that then I’d say he has a very good shot at surviving Obama. If not, then the bad guys win again, no real surprise there anymore.

Did Newt endorse McCain??? If he didn’t endorse Romney in 2008, he helped give the nomination to McCain. Gee Thanks. I think Romney could have beaten O’Bummer in 08 and we wouldn’t be scared to death of what is now happening to our country.

Not quite enough.

Romney, as lousy as he is, would be a better president than Wittle Wicky (never run so much as a lemonade stand) Santorum.

Bullcrap. Santorum campaign is running neg ads against Newt in the South right now. Rick Santorum has admitted that he’s trying to drive Newt out of the race.

What’s he supposed to do, just stand there and take it? He tried that in Iowa, and Mitt’s millions in lying attack ads drove Newt’s numbers way down.

I can’t believe some of the abject stupidity I see here sometimes.

We can disagree over who's the best candidate between Gingrich and Santorum. To me, both are quite capable of representing Conservatism. What's striking to me is how either candidate would be far and away more acceptable than Romney (a candidate whom I deem completely unacceptable).

Politics can make some emotional to the point of losing a grasp on reality (not implying you are such). I support Santorum but I would vote for Gingrich over Romney in a heartbeat, as I truly believe there's a bigger issue here, defeating Romney. That's the reality which cannot be ignored.

To the original post, I don't like seeing this kind of political attack at this stage, not between two individuals I could support. Knowing that at some point (if we are to defeat Romney) that one will have to support the other, something like this ad will make joining forces (for both the candidates and their supporters) far more difficult.

I am resigning myself to the fact that I will be leaving the GOP very shortly.

The people both Newt and Santorum should be going after are Romney's voters. They are only following Romney because they are front-runners and ignorant of Romney's record--therefore, easy pickings.

Exactly there all gone run negative adds against each other.

Its politics.

If your upset about Newt ads against Santorum, Just wait till obammy unleashes on him in the GE if he makes it that far.

Here’s the deal. Gingrich hinted at Santorum getting out after three Contests in Florida, one of which Santorum had won. We’ve now had 21 Contests, Gingrich has won 2 and finished second in two others, he’s finished 4th in 12 Contests. Santorum has won 7 contests and only finished 4th once. It’s no longer early. It’s half time and Gingrich can’t play.

“Newt’s energy plan” is hilarious. Its not that I don’t agree with it, I do. I agreed with it when Michele Bachmann was proposing the same thing (although she did denounce her past support of ethanol subsidies) and Newt’s worshipers were calling it stupid and desperate.

Its no wonder America is such a mess. The people have virtually no ethics when it comes to getting their way

Technically it’s not a negative ad, it’s a Santorum ad for those interested in his positions.. all of them.
