Gingrich: Letís face it, Iím going to be the nominee
Hot Air ^ | DECEMBER 1, 2011 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 12/01/2011 3:23:05 PM PST by RobinMasters

He’s at 50 percent in Florida and nationally, among likely voters, enjoys a 20-point lead on Romney. He’s not blowing smoke here. If he doesn’t stumble this month and Cain drops out, it’s absolutely possible that he’ll run the table in the early states. Unlike in other years, that itself won’t cinch the nomination — Romney’s got the cash and organization to press on, and there’ll be time before Super Tuesday for Newt to cool off — but still.

I feel like Pascow in “Pet Sematary,” pleading with Dr. Creed not to let his desperation drive him to something terrible. You don’t have to nominate Newt. You don’t have to do this, Louis.

Newt is a big government Republican. The only time he is for smaller government is when the democrats are in charge. He won’t have any problem with growing the government when he is running it.

You MUST be a Newt shill. You have to be. There is no other logical, rational, reasonable explanation. Newt's campaign must have assigned you and some other campaign drones to post idiotic, over-the-top anti-Newt threads and posts that are so stupid, inane, and vacuuous in their supposed attempt at making a point that they make Newt and his supporters look like sound, brilliant conservatives by comparison. No honest or informed person could seriously post the anti-Newt propaganda you do without the intent of making yourself look like a complete, clueless moron. Ok, ok, we get it - YOU=dumb, bad, and therefore your supposed target, NEWT=smart, good. I can now see it's just another part of Newt's master strategy to NOT attack his GOP rivals while welcoming their attacks, which makes him look Presidential and his detractors look like the petty, sore losers they are.

Enough already! You've become a little TOO obvious. Is the pay at the Newt HQ a lot better these days? ;-)

His statement, “Paul Ryan plan to change the medicare as we know is right wing social engineering”, tells me that he does not consider himself to be right-wing/conservative. I understand he has apologized to Ryan, but when is he going to apologize to us right-wingers for his condescending attitude?

BTW, what part of Ryan’s plan was social engineering?

Sorry if I’m your Newt buzz kill. I call it like I see it, though it would be nice if someone paid me to do it. Every time I see this fool come on TV and mention his 30 freakin books he’s written and all his accomplishments blah blah blah I feel sick. He is transparently vain, and the only reason people think he’s deep is because he tells us that he’s deep and informed 20 or 30 times in each conversation. However, I won’t ever vote for a guy who treats us like we’re stupid, even against Obummer the ultimate God-complex President we’ve ever had.

Look, I’ve supported and donated to Palin, Perry, and Cain in that order. Newt has always been my last resort fallback candidate. I just didn’t envision being down to my last chip so early in the game.

Correct. He has to be a bit careful,
however, Obama beat McCain due to McCain being a bit
nasty and old school,and Obama introduced cutting-edge
media techniques to capture the younger audience.

Newt is doing similar moves that Obama did, as opposed
to the-usual/play-safe methods that Romney does.
His methods are Unconventional, and it looks there is
almostno way that Romney would be able to shift gears
fast enough to counter Newt’s moves.

What has Newt done since resigning from congress too show he would be a Conservative POTUS? What elected office did he have since his resignation from congress to regain any trust? Don't listen to what Newt says, watch what he's done. He's a talking out of the side of his mouth Liberal.

It sure has been a weird year. I didn’t see this coming even a few months ago.

I think you ain't seen nothing yet.

Arrogance is not a trait the people care for. Cool it, Newt.

If indeed Newt becomes unstoppable but chooses WEST as VP then I’d consider voting for this ticket. Does anyone think that West could temper Newt on his mass amnesty scheme?
Can he pass his slyster mass amnesty?

The amnesty issue will get Newt elected picking up the mid votes.

What he does after that will be different.

You certainly aint no Newt “buzz kill”! LOL Quite the obvious. You are working FOR Newt, whether they are paying you or not, or even whether you realize or not, and you are doing one HELL of a job! Just look where he’s at now! He couldn’t have done it without the incredibly empty, over-the-top, foot-stomping petty attacks that you carry out so diligently like clockwork. I gotta admit it’s a pretty brilliant strategy, even by Newt’s standards.
