Newt fires back at Pelosi: Bring it on!
The Right Scoop ^ | 12/5/2011 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 12/05/2011 12:16:16 PM PST by TBBT

Newt today said that if Pelosi wants to disclose information about himself from when she was on the ethics committee, that the House should immediately file charges against her as that is a violation of the rules of the House:

First of all I’d like to thank Speaker Pelosi for what I regard as an early Christmas gift. If she’s suggesting she’s gonna use material she developed while she was on the ethics committee, that is a fundamental violation of the rules of the House and I would hope members would immediately file charges against her the second she does it.

Here’s the full clip:

Wake up about Newt and do what?

Wake up and admit he is a blowhard has-been egomaniac, and he cannot win in the general.

Vote for whom?

I have no idea. We've got nothing. I can't believe this is where we find ourselves. This election should have been a cakewalk for conservatives. And all we can come up with is Newt Effing Gringrich?

I am furious about this.

Do you really know something the rest of us don't,

Well if you don't know that Newt is a blowhard who won't beat Obama in November, then yes, I guess I do.

or have you allowed the leftists to convince you that the way to earn the respect of your peers is to spout off crazy nasty garbage?

I have no idea what that means. I am not trying to earn anyone's respect. I am just stating my opinion. That's what we do here.

The MSM will paint a picture of him that has nothing to do with the facts. They are already trying.

FReepers expect the MSM to do this. What gets us riled is when other FReepers do it here on FR.

Thanks for posting that. It is very instructive that some FReepers trust Nanzi Pelozi more than they trust Newt Gingrich. It’s all I ever need to know about them.

Isn't it amazing that no one here was singing Newt's praises a few months ago. Now he's the freaking goldenboy of FR.

He may be the last man standing, but that doesn't make him a good candidate.

Newt is certainly a blowhard and an egomaniac. However, given his present polling numbers he is certainly far from a has-been. Someone has to win the GOP nomination and unless you think there are three or more people who are far more likely to do so than Newt then he is hardly a has-been. As for who wins the general, I think Newt can beat Obama. Maybe you don't but neither of us really know.

I have no idea (who to vote for.)

Well, you'll have to choose someone. Right now I'm expecting to vote for Newt.

Oh yes, I know, one can always count on the GOP for support when one is in trouble, much like Herman Cain got their support.

But, Newt, along with Bob Livingston, and others seem so eager to step down as soon as anything is said.

Whereas democrats almost never give up a seat, because a seat = power...except of course in the case of Weiner, which was anunusual exception to the rule.

Easy Semper....easy!

It is a very very very long way to next November; much can and probably will happen.

It is a bit surprising that once again the rinos have put forth their best....and it culminates in the likes of rom-knee and noot (as if mcloser wasn't as bad as it could get)! Tis a puzzlement for sure! If these are examples of the best the rinos have, then it is high time for a third party! But not right now.

If you've been around as long as I have, we should not be above voting AGAINST as well as being strongly FOR.

In this election year (almost), I can assure you that I will proudly, with head held high, back ramrod straight, showing no fear, and with resolute step vote AGAINST the stain and the current regime.

If I am unable to get behind a candidate...I can damn sure block one!

The tax charges are the only ones that are not still an issue. Newt will withdraw before he lets the real dirt out in the air. The only question is whether Nanzi is ready to retire so that she can divulge what she knows.

You’re welcome. Newt is far from perfect - but he is knowledgeable, confident, optimistic, experienced and is the most despised ‘outsider’ by the Washington elites; Democrat and Rino.

His power is necessarily going to be ‘from the voters’. Newt will have to surround himself with, and delegate details to an exceptional & loyal cabinet.

Our patron, JR is now on board the ‘Newt shute’ and that shows me how persuasive Newt is becoming.

Talk intelligently and carry a can of whup a$$.

I don't like the guy and more importantly, I don't trust him. I don't understand how anyone here does.

I am not ashamed of my position. I just wish we had a real conservative. He has schmoozed with and been played by Dems for decades.

Newt is only talking conservative because he is running. And everyone is falling for it because there isn't anyone else to hand their hat on.

Again, I don't trust him.

So we are on the same page. And you are right, there is a lot of time between now and November, and I should take it easy about the situation.

But I am floored that FR has turned Newt into a rockstar overnight instead of admitting that they will vote for him because it's all we've got.

Where were they when Newt was polling in single digits? No one thought he had a chance!

So you’re calling me self-rightous? Gee I thought I was just keeping my head above water defending myself for daring to express an opinion about Newt’s infamous couch photo. I’ll work on that self-rightous tone, but as for my snarkiness, I’m keeping it nice warm and fuzzy, especially when responding to incredibly astute independent conservaties.

I like Newt’s feistiness, but, like a lot of other things about him, he’s inconsistent. Eg: he came on like gangbusters over the gov’t shutdown in 95, but he caved in the end and went down meekly. Like the Pelosi couch ad shows, he goes kissy-face with this vicious partisan who tried to destroy him. How tough is that? I love to watch Newt debate and fence with media jerks and all that, but I can’t figure him out in the end. He’s like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re gonna get, but some of ‘em will be awesome and some of ‘em will make you wretch.

Huh? This was all over the press when it happened. There was no substance to it; the Dems were simply mad at him for being so effective. The GOP was also mad at him for being so effective (which they called “divisive”) and dumped him.

There is nothing to “expose.” That’s why Gingrich isn’t worried about it.

Pelosi, on the other hand, by making this threat (since she was part of the official panel that was reviewing the information), has probably put herself in a very difficult legal position.

I think Gingrich would have stayed, but the problem is that the GOP bailed on him because they really didn’t want somebody like him (he was “too confrontational”). I remember listening to Rush when all this was going down.

It was truly bizarre. Gingrich really had no choice but to quit as Speaker, since the GOP had basically announced that it would not support him (and you can’t stay if your party won’t support you).

Note that nothing was ever found against him. But GOP Central wanted him out of the Speakership and they voted in Gephardt, who was exactly the RINO of their dreams. They lost the next round and the Speakership went to Dodd, who was probably also the candidate of GOP dreams...since they obviously all wanted to be Democrats.

Nick, regarding your tagline...

Is Chaffee being considered for VP by Gingrich? I have not heard anything like that, and I am in Rhode Island. He wouldn’t be THAT stupid, would he?

Chaffee is a colossal disaster, and while I could hold my nose and vote for Newt, I wouldn’t even consider it if Chaffee was on the ticket. Just because it would show Newt’s bad judgement.

Or is the tagline a joke of some sort?

This drive-by assassination drives me crazy. I’ve experienced the Gingrich Family first hand. They supported my 2 combat infantry sons in Afghanistan and they are certainly not the dysfunctional family the Dems portray them as. They are all about substance and preserving the culture of the greatest nation ever to exist. Gingrich is real Commander in Chief material. The left can’t stand a conservative that actually has substance and skill. Newt certainly does not need to carry this burden, but he knows what America needs and at 68 he is passionate and determined to take on the media and the Democrats to save America. He is the epitome of the self-made man and he will not apologize for his success or his principles no matter how the left tries to distort and smear him. He is the inspiration that America longs for. It is not his PhD or his books, it is the love of America in his heart that inspires him.

I've supported Perry from the start and I have no intention of switching unless and until he drops out or it becomes apparent that he can't make it.

That's not apparent to me yet.

If Free Republic is a microcosm of the country, there seems to be as much fear and loathing of Newt as there is love.

I don't know where we'll end up.

If Newt doesn't shoot himself in the butt and if he can keep his mouth shut for five minutes, he may make it.
