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:

Good grief - how should I know.

He left the House in 1998. The ad was in 2007 to promote global warming concerns. He was probably asked to help.

Newt has admitted the ad was his most singularly worst decision.

They prefer a couch.

Actually it's a love seat.

Very fitting.

Pelosi will be walking stright into a chainsaw, just like Pickett at Gettysburg. Marching straight at Newt’s strong point.

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.

I guess you've missed his throwing of the media types against the wall in three debates. He doesn't fear their sh*t.

“he craves respect”

I vaguely remember some story about him flying in the back of Air Force One (when Slick Willie was roosting in it) and Newt took umbrage because he thought he deserved better.
They tossed him some sort of bone and he exited the plane wagging his tail.

I think you already know what they were investigating, unless you were not paying attention at some point.

If Gingrich is the nominee his candidacy will set the GOP back 50 years.

How many years will the GOP be set back if Romney is the nominee?

He was probably asked to help.

So what you are saying is, he's a socialist if he's asked to help? Sorry, that's bad enough. Can you name any other conservative who did that, when, "asked to help?" No, because there isn't one. Even Bush and McCain wouldn't do what Gingrich did. Hence, he's waaay to the left of them.

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

Sounds good, but even with a RINO Republican majority, what are the chances of that happening?

I'm beginning to wonder if the fear of being flayed on national TV is why the "media" have steered clear of Gingrich. They've seen him rip their flesh three times in debates... no one wants to be on the receiving end of that.

I got a solution for you:

Obama only did the healthcare bills, because he was asked to help.

Just like magic, by you definition, Obama is a conservative.


Obama only did porkulus because he was asked to help.

Poof, Obama is a conservative. Just by using your semantic twist, we can make everyone a conservative!

From The Hill

Gingrich denounced the threat from Pelosi, who is now the minority leader in the House, as "a fundamental violation of the rules of the House," and said that if Pelosi were to disclose details of the investigation, it would expose the "tainted ethics process the House was engaged in." He also called for the House to condemn Pelosi if she were to reveal anything from the ethics probe.

Doesn't sound like Newt's too worried about what she might have to reveal.

Do you think Pelosi cares? First off she knows nothing will get done. Second, it isn’t about ethics, it is about the country hearing about Newt, again.

Pelosi will declare that she had no knowledge of this. Congressional Republicans will make a stink, the media will ask why Republicans don’t want all the information to come out....

Well you get the picture. Meanwhile the MSM will crucift Newt.

Here is a question, if the Republican candidates are so bad, why are the left trying to destroy them? If anything, they told the American people, Mitt is the only candidate the left thinks it can beat.

I think I read elsewhere that Newt would request that ALL the material be released and point to the fact that the IRS absolved him of wrong doings when they finally audited the records.

He left the House in 1998.

Actually, it was 1999. Do you know why he left? Because when patriots were trying to save this country from Bill Clinton, he was conducted adultery with his aide. Which he knew, if discovered, would save Bill Clinton. The conservative movement in this country has never recovered. How many times do you want to be stabbed in the back by the same person?

As you probably know, judging by your comment, the reason that Gingrich had to step down originally was essentially because the GOP establishment stopped supporting him. They were actually embarrassed by his success and considered him “divisive,” and they couldn’t wait to get Dodd (IIRC) into his position.

The Global Warming scandal at the University of East Anglia (hockey stick fraud) was not exposed until 2009. Prior to that time many scientists were concerned about carbon emissions in the atmosphere. We were already installing catalytic converters on automobiles and taking other air-pollution concerns seriously.

Newt, like many of us, is not a physicist or climatologist - and like us, trusted the integrity of the science.

HE HELD NO INFLUENTIAL OFFICE OR LEGISLATIVE POWER.

HE WAS NOT IN ANY POLITICAL OFFICE WITH LAW-

Isn’t he just admitting that she’s got dirt on him?

No he is not. What Newt is doing is pointing out that there are rules and agreements in this world and that Pelosi is threatening to violate some of them.

Wow. If I could go back in time and make that post one year ago today you would totally lambaste me for it. And with good reason. Can you listen to what Can you find anyone on Free Republic who was taking the line you propose before 2009? Wow. Now conservatives are going to take up arms for “climate change” because Gingrich told them to. When he imposes cap and trade on this country it will ruin our economy. And you can tell me it’s okay, because Newt weighed the science and he has to do it...

Look, it’s obvious that the House Ethics Committee c. 1997 had “dirt” on Gingrich, since they managed to get the House to censure him and forced him to pay a penalty of $300K “for the cost of the investigation”. The IRS subsequently determined Gingrich did not break any laws. There is no admission of anything here except what is already known.

By the way, Gingrich vehemently supported single payer healthcare, ala Obamacare. What's your explanation for that?

It's scary. If Gingrich is the nominee, maybe the GOP will be running on supporting Obamacare by November 2012. Maybe Obama/Congress can escape blame.
