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:

Nice act.

Gingrich is either in bed with Pelosi, or he's too stupid for words to have paretnered with her and given her everything, and have her backstab him. If Gingrich is the nominee his candidacy will set the GOP back 50 years. He could actually give the Dems huge majorities in both houses.

Noot.

Rules don't apply to Democrats.

You KNOW that.

I can't imagine Mitt fighting back so quickly or so hard. In fact, I have a hard time imagining Mitt fighting back against a Democrat at all.

Pelosi on an ethics committee is almost as absurd as Jamie Gorelick on the 911 commission.

Let’s be honest, neither is Newt. He thinks he’s intelligent, which means it’s easy for people to manipulate him because he craves respect. That’s why Clinton, Pelosi, etc. used him like a puppet.

Newt will NOT be newt-ered by the reigning regime.

Maybe he can teach a course on how it’s done to our

Republican “representatives” in Washington.

It’s a wondrous thing to behold.

It will get out and Pelosi will merely claim that someone else did it.

Nobody will do a thing about it because they never do.

pelosi thinks that Newt will wilt just like the others, problem is she is playing right into Newts hands if she tries to pull ethics violations details on him. In doing so SHE would be subject to ethics violations herself, and I’m sure Newt has plenty of bay mud on the princess pelosi to add to the mix. As stupid raw political power move that Newt will use to mop the floor with democrats.

Isn’t he just admitting that she’s got dirt on him? Sit on the couch with her again, Newt. Or it could just be an organized plan to insure that Mitt takes the spot. I’m beginning to wonder if Gingrich is a choice or a red herring.

Don’t be an ignoramus. Pelosi has just given Newt the ammunition to blow her out of the water. When he counterattacks, believe me, he counterattacks.

Gingrich didn’t give Pelosi anything. He was long out of office when he agreed to do that ‘friendly’ advertisement.

Pelosi is acting like a mafioso - with cryptic threats of blackmail. By not acting like a victim - Newt wins this fight against the corrupt backstabber and loser that Pelosi is.

She is digging her own grave- Newt just needs to shove her in it.

This is why, despite all the angst I see here about Newt, he is not the disaster some are afraid of. He was never my choice, but I have to say that more than any of the others he has the ability to put the left on the defensive and to play effective hardball.

Incidentally, by saying what she did Pelosi inadvertently helped Gingrich to distance himself from his earlier fraternizing with her.

Summary for those who can’t see the video:

Newt says if Nancy releases anything from the Ethics Committee she should be immediately investigated by the House.

Newt is kicking you-know-what and taking names! Pelosi’s blowing smoke and some of the folks around here scatter for the bushes to hide. If they had ANYTHING more on Newt they would have used it in the first campaign to destroy him. They have nothing.

Newt is a fighter. He’s going to take it directly to the other side.

I thought that as well.. that it’d be a violation of House rules to release that kind of info.

Be that as it may, one thing the detestable Pelosi is indeed forgetting... Newt Gingrich relishes a mudfight, and will be quite willing to deliver back to his attackers.

So go for it, Wicked Bitch of the West... bring it!

Already discussed on FR threads ad nauseum.

From Wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newt_Gingrich

Eighty-four ethics charges were filed against Speaker Gingrich during his term, including claiming tax-exempt status for a college course run for political purposes. Following an investigation by the House Ethics Committee Gingrich was sanctioned US$300,000.[65] Gingrich acknowledged in January 1997 that “In my name and over my signature, inaccurate, incomplete and unreliable statements were given to the committee”. [66] The House Ethics Committee concluded that inaccurate information supplied to investigators represented “intentional or ... reckless” disregard of House rules.[67] Special Counsel James M. Cole concluded that Gingrich violated federal tax law and had lied to the ethics panel in an effort to force the committee to dismiss the complaint against him. The full committee panel did not agree whether tax law had been violated[68] and left that issue up to the IRS.[69] In 1999, the IRS cleared the organizations connected with the “Renewing American Civilization” courses under investigation for possible tax violations.

Exactly. He has a history of slamming the left hard. The kissy-face stuff he did with Hillary and Pelosi was merely theater to soften his image a bit. I assume he's figured out by this point in his career that such moves are supremely counter-productive.

Newt has never won a fight in his life. Clinton ran laps around him. And Pelosi knew what she was doing in 2006. How can you defend his total surrender to him?

She will simply leak the info "anonymously". She will do whatever she wants and will not be held accountable.
