Actually, Rumsfeld said that. But the point is, in your own words, Newt was a no vote. You didnt say if everyone else was gone, you’d vote for him. You said no, never. Then, you flip-flopped (like Romney).
I’m glad you found that, as I was making fun of the people who wanted to use liberal ideas of class warfare (I believe that is what the thread was about) to beat Romney. So I used Bush’s suspending the free market to save it line as sarcasm, showing that so-called conservatives will promote liberal ideas in order to win, because they aren’t nearly as ideologically competent as they think.
Here are some more fun ones:
“Its fun to watch the Newt cheerleaders here. He can do no wrong even when its blatantly obvious the guy is a liberal. Its Scott Brown all over again. If he comes to power the same cheerleaders will become disillusioned as he carries out his predictable liberal agenda.”
Generally, I agree with your assessment. The only thing I would add, is that I don’t believe many of them are as innocent as your post would assume. Much like some Perry Supporters, many Newt supporters would appear to be fair-weather conservatives, more interested in their candidate winning vs. holding their candidates responsible for their bad behavior or lacks where conservatism is concerned.

Newt Gingrich has a LIFETIME 90% from the ACU
His “LIFETIME” ACU rating ended in 1998 when he retired from congress.
Since then he has done the following:
1. Believes in Global Warming
2. Supported TARP
3. Supported Cap-n-Trade
4. Supported the Individual Mandate for Health Insurance
5. “The Era of Reagan is Over!
6. Limited Amnesty. 7. Fined $300,000 for ethics violation by a GOP-controlled House of Representatives.
8. Sided with Pelosi to push through the Criminal Safezones Act which prevents armed citizens from defending themselves in certain arbitrary locations.
Tell me once again how that PAST ACU Rating factors in to the Mitt of today?

I guess my point is that you are a flip-flopper.
