Skip to comments.Gingrich Calls on Romney to Stop Negative Ads.
Posted on 03/16/2012 7:39:06 PM PDT by true believer forever
Newt Gingrich demanded Friday that Mitt Romney stop the barrage of TV attack ads that badly damage him and Rick Santorum each time they seemed poised to make big strides in the GOP presidential race.
Admitting to Louisiana voters that he can't match Romney and a pro-Romney super PAC in fundraising, Gingrich repeated a plea that thus far the front-running Romney has ignored.
"I challenge Gov. Romney and his super PAC to pledge to take every negative ad about every Republican off the air, because it dishonors them, it weakens the Republican Party, and it helps Barack Obama," Gingrich told a cheering outdoor crowd of more than 200 in Covington.
Romney has said he doesn't control the super PAC, Restore Our Future, which has aired most of the hard-hitting ads.

Well said, Newt! Said in vain, but well said none the less.
I have had 9 automated Romney calls today. All attacked Rick Santorum. Romney is the bottom feeder of politics in my book.
This is going to sound like whining from a loser to most Americans.
Romney's tactics disgust me.
The same kind of shallow modern voter that would even pay attention to the Romney crap in the first place....
SIX FREAKING TIMES.
If he's the nominee, he's not going to win anyway. Obama created OWS to run against him as "Mr. Wall Street."
If he's the nominee, OWS will burn the country to the ground next summer, and state-controlled media will lay the blame at Myth's feet.
For the first time in my life, I am considering not even voting in the Presidential election.
He truly was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but he thinks he's a self-made man.
It is disgusting how most of these “woe lists” do not bother to furnish any larger context.
“This is going to sound like whining from a loser to most Americans.”
I view such differently. Mitt ‘appeals’ to said ‘whiners’ within the Republican Party as well as the libtards elswhere.
Are you talking about this Romney, the willard one?
Check out the look on romney and ann's face, they look like they are in the presence of royalty... oh, yeah, romney's just gonna reform DC big time. BIG TIME.
I may not be voting this year if I cannot vote for Newt.
I want reforms. I help Bush in the grassroots. No more of the same governance.
I can't be positive, but I don't think Romney is running any negative Newt ads right now. I think I've heard Mark Levin say that... so I don't really know what you are talking about, Newt is basically calling romney out for what he is doing to Santorum, which is awful, but still metrics less than what he did to Newt in Florida, where Santorum was silent.
Fair is fair.
I can I ever be expected to vote for someone who gave the commie libs in the state run “media” a small fortune to show ads smearing Gingrich and Santorum? Sounds like Milt doesn’t care what I think. The GOP needs to rein this crap in and tell him to knock it off.
What I think is so cool is that Newt is engineering a standoff at the convention, a showdown with the powers that be. I still don't understand the dynamics, whether that is a plus or negative, but IT'S ABOUT TIME.
A Freeper posted this yesterday, and it is really hardhitting and reality stark, and probably accurate, but God bless Newt for trying, and I bet he has something up his sleeve. She's very attractive and loves to kick around the big shots :)
"First ballots don't solve anything so the delegates are released to pick Newt, Palin, Rubio whatever...right? Wrong! The GOP-e will be making the rules as they go along and like 1976, they will anoint Romney just like they did Gerald Ford over Ronald Reagan. They have too much invested in Mendacious Mitt to let a silly conservative majority stand in their way. Why do you think super RINO of color Michael Steele is so looking forward to a brokered conventionhe and the GOP-e know the plan and they are laughing at their useful idiot from Georgia." (end of FR post excerpt)
I have put in for vacation time for the week of the convention. I hate most political stuff, but I want to see this up close.
Romney is the bottom feeders' bottom feeder. Willard - The Magic Never Stops.
Agreed. Romney is disgusting. I know one of his policy advisors, a real piece of human trash, lemme tell ya.
