How do you keep him on a short leash? He's wildly undisciplined and thinks he's the smartest guy in politics and if we don't like a position he decides to take it's because we're not smart enough to see what he's doing. Sound familiar? After he made the couch commercials with Pelosi Hannity asked him why he did it and he said "Global warming is a fact and I'm the only conservative who sees that there's a need to craft a conservative approach to the pronblem." I don't trust him as far as I can throw him. I'll move my support to Santorum, FWIW.
“Marianne had no problem cheating with Newt on the first Mrs. Gingrich, Marianne had no problem cheating with Newt on the first Mrs. Gingrich”
Yeah; I can’t understand why Marianne is so upset. He is what he is. What the hell did she expect?
But what's the common denominator between all these 'other women'? It's the lying, cheating weasel they were all married to.
heh...”job vacancy”....good one.
Happy, a little pissed off, or couldn’t give a rats ass?
Why are they not looking into Barrys cocaine years, the missing years, the school records?
I see the Romney campaign talking point emails have gone out.
Newt once said that global warming was a fact. Since the data scandal Newt nolonger says that GW is a fact.
Myself, I've never concluded that it is fact.
As I also said, Newt is flawed. As I said, both Santorum and Newt are about 90% conservative.
Now, shall I post for you the long list of Santorum things that he has done that is liberal?
Character matters, regardless of party. A person who will not keep a vow voluntarily undertaken to a woman that he gets to select cannot be trusted to keep an oath required of him to a Constitution that he had no part in selecting. Clinton is a slimeball. Newt is a slimeball. We don’t need slimeballs in the White House.
If Mitt gets the nomination, will freepers be allowed to support him?
A few months ago, I was reading how important moral integrity was. Of course, that was when Cain was still in the race.
This does not surprise me in the least. Newt has the moral fiber of bill clinton.
And many here will vote for him. Damn shame because you will get what you deserve.
We have one candidate standing right now that is the most conservative and that’s Rick Santorum. He is certainly not my first choice but better than Romney and better than Newt.
Any time I see a Romney sycophant performing duties as part of the Romney Sleaze Machine I say piss on Romney. He’s a turd liberal.
Sure. On some other website. FR is and will remain a pro-life, pro-family, limited government conservative site.
RomneyCare Romney with it’s mandates against the people and $50 taxpayer funded abortions is none of the above!
What he said!
RE: I see the usual MittBots are screaming at the top of their lungs about Newt...they can put this in their pipes and smoke it.
Indeed the Romney Sleaze Machine is in sixth gear. To quote Jim Rob: “Piss on Romney”
You need to ask Jim Robinson, not me.
What will we get to say about the election then? Just a bunch of...hope Obama gets beat and how much we dislike the guy and his policies that’s running against him? That doesn’t make sense.
How can anyone talk politics and the election, if talking about the candidate gets you banned?
I dare say there quite a few other races that then become much more important than supporting one liberal candidate over another.
Plenty for conservatives to champion.
And, from the looks of this thread he's given out the orders to his FR troops.
Right on, Jim!
I don’t care if Romney IS the nominee (which I will fight as hard as I can), I STILL will never vote for the sleazeball.
If Romney is a conservative then I’m the frickin Angel Moroni.
As with four years ago, the Romney Sleaze Machine are like the old Soviet Spetsnatz. They infiltrate and hide just below the surface to sow hate and discontent and attempt to divide, discourage, and confuse conservatives so that the 25% Romney can actually muster is enough to McCain us again.
Romney is as sleazy and duplicitous as most liberals are.
Of course there are. But what? Are we just not supposed to talk about the Presidential election in anything but negative terms?
What will we say about the election? That the GOP is beyond repair if they shove Romney down our throats and it is time for conservatives to leave the GOP and start fighting for conservative principles rather than keep feeding us liberals in suits claiming to be GOP.
Someone posted a graphic the other day with a man hitting his (i guess) girlfriend. The man’s shirt says “Republican Party”, the woman’s says “Conservative” with the caption “because you have nowhere else to go”. It is sad but that is how they see us so now is the time for us to get our stuff and leave the abuser. We deserve better.
"And it shall Come To Pass", that He too will be sent home with his hat in tow, he did not read his stones correctly.
(plagiarizing a little mormon there.)
This isn’t about what Romney is or isn’t. I’m just wondering what we’re supposed to say about the election, if Romney does get the nomination?
We’re going to need some guide lines from Jim on this.
Look, we’re in open rebellion against this big government RINO crap!! FR is not going to support a statist/abortionist RINO!! Period!!
The GOP RINO establishment can KMA!!
We are the resistance!!
Rebellion is brewing and those who refuse to stand and fight can rollover for their statist masters elsewhere!!
actually it says a LOT more about her and the “nobility” of journalism to hold this hit piece.
Remember this was already in the can. ABC was holding it rather than releasing it long ago.
OK, but it seems that it could be the first time freepers don’t get to talk about the election in any kind of positive terms. That’s sad.
Parodical is a real word. It's describes something related to parody. Maybe it's even applicable to this situation.
I’m not trying to change your mind. I’m just curious how you have come to the conclusion that Newt can win a general election.
RE: Are we just not supposed to talk about the Presidential election in anything but negative terms?
There is nothing positive about a Romney nomination. If you think there is then you are on the wrong forum anyways.
No more Rudy McRomneys
Good one! Props to you.
OK. I’ll just wait and see what happens. I hope you can give us some guidelines on what to say if something bad happens.
So that’s a yes?
Newt takes it to Obama. Get out of the way Romney...you can't hold a candle to Newt on Obama

Some of us care a great deal. Personal lives and private character tell a great deal about how someone will act in public life. It's not everything we need to know, but it's important.
Yes, we've had Republicans in public life for many years who have been divorced, but not serial adulterers like Gingrich. Also, we didn't hear stories like this from Ronald Reagan's first wife or Bob Dole's first wife. Dole, for example, went out of his way to always make sure his ex-wife and her new husband were placed at the lead table whenever he went to their county for Republican Party political events. It's one thing to get divorced; it's a very different thing to commit adultery.
Just because Newt Gingrich's ex-wife said these things doesn't mean they're true. And yes, the timing is problematic.
But ask yourself, if you were the ex-wife and had stayed quiet over all these years because your ex-husband was effectively banished from public life after losing the Speakership, is it not quite realistic that you would wait until there was a realistic chance of your ex-husband returning to public life before going public with this stuff?
Newt Gingrich is known for hardball politics. My guess is he has lots of “stuff” on his ex-wife as well. We'll probably be seeing a lot of that.
As I've said many times before, I am extremely unhappy with our entire list of Republican candidates. We've got the best chance in a very long time to take a decisive blow against the Democrats, and we're throwing it away. This stuff should not even have had the chance to come out. Republicans have worked for more than thirty years to make ourselves known as the party of moral values, and now we run the risk of throwing it all away because of sex scandals that are as bad if not worse than what Bill Clinton was doing.
This stuff should have been vetted and dealt with long ago, not two days before South Carolina votes.
Im just wondering what were supposed to say about the election, if Romney does get the nomination?
Were going to need some guide lines from Jim on this.

Well since Romney isn’t the nominee we don’t need to worry about it yet do we?
Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.
allowed? Sorry Stew, that really is a ridiculous question, FR is not prison or the USSR. Support him or not, if you do that’s on you.
I’m clinging to Newt as the only one with a chance to beat Obama, but even that will be an uphill battle.
Assuming the GOP candidate goes down to defeat in November, which now looks to be much more likely the case, I think the GOP needs to be blown up, and from the ashes a new party, with a new name takes its’ place. It’s the only way to dislodge the elites, that have run the GOP into the ground, from their base of power.
If Mitt gets the nomination there is nothing positive that CAN be said about this election-not on the POTUS level at least.
As, Jim just said, it’s time to rebel, not roll over.
t’anks a heep. xxxoooxxx.
I’m not counting anything, that’s why I use the word if.
is the timing of the to cause perrys 1% to go to santorum”s 1%?

Agreed. It would also be ironic if Mittens (the descendent of polygamists) would be the key to the destruction of a party that was founded in part to tear down the ‘twin relics of barbarism - slavery and polygamy.
