After Newt Gingrich was declared the winner of the South Carolina primary Saturday night, Karl Rove suggested that the candidate has CNN’s John King to thank for his victory in the Palmetto State.

“Taking on the media is always good in a Republican primary,” Rove said on Fox News. “John King couldn’t have set up the question in a more positive way for Gingrich to just nail it and haul it right out of the park.”

Only a little twerp like Rove could say, “...haul it out of the park.” What a loser! Get this creep off TV and out of our lives!

Rove is just copying me. I said earlier today on a thread that King’s rude question was actually a gift for Gingrich.

Carl Rove and his Mini-Me, Dana Perino, are disgusting. They are STILL working for their disgraced ex-bosses, the BUSH Klan, trying to spin Romney into office.

If King put Gingrich in the victor’s seat in South Carolina, he and his boss made Obama the victor in 2008, along with John McCain, who, interestingly enough is ALSO backing Romney.

BTW Mitt making a total fool of himself on Fox now.

One quote. "I'll repeal Obamacare."

And replace it with what Mitt?

I'm still not voting for Newt or Santorum or Paul.

OOo...Mitt just said shining city on a hill....just like RR. What a piece of work.

Karl Rove and everyone at Fox News need to take a good hard look in the mirror. After almost 3 months of pushing Romney and bashing Newt, they only served to create momentum for Gingrich; exactly opposite from what they wanted. I lost a lot of respect for FNC. Romney screwed up all by himself and having Fox in his corner hurt, not helped, him.

Karl Rove, Charles Krauthammer, Juan Williams, and Brit Hume, plus the clowns on Fox & Friends are eating a lot of crow today.

Listening to Mitt’s sour grapes speech. It looks like:
Mitt’s Super PAC (that he won’t admonish): 0
Newt’s Super PAC (that he did admonish): 1

The people on Foxnews is about ready to cry. Brett who does the Special report, was caught about to break down. Huckabee looks shell-shocked that Mitt lost. The insiders are wanting Rick S to stay in—says a lot to me ...

In turning the questions by Juan Williams and John King into opportunities for himself, Newt Gingrich did a masterful job of rhetorical ju jitsu, the art of manipulating the opponent's force against himself.

That pig-eyed porky little bastard always finds someone else to blame, doesn’t he?

Yo! Turd Blossom! It’s YOUR fault. Face it. Own it. Willard screwed up - he trusted you. Don’t be trying to pass the blame to some media hack. Again. YOU did it. So, man up, dood.

The point is, Newt DID spank it out of the park. In a manner that Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum can only dream of doing.

And that is why the voters of South Carolina chose him.

Newt Gingrich has singlehandedly become the most potent antidote to the fourth estate fifth columnists during these primaries.

I don’t know about anyone else, but at this point I will be purposely voting for whomever is the latest whipping-boy/girl of the political establishment and media. Like opposite-day. I’m sick of being told who I should vote for.

Of course Sarah saying she’d vote for Newt if she lived in SC didn’t help him at all. Karl Rove is a New World Order socialist.

“CNN isn’t dumb. They have seen Newt’s favorable/unfavorable and know Obama would win in a cake walk.”

Say what? The election is still ten months off, and the pubbies don’t even have a candidate. Newt has been the ONLY one in the race to fight back against the lame stream media and the talking heads in the GOP. His views have been refreshing, at least; and, spot on for the most part.

Obama? Cake walk? Against Newt? What are you smokin?

I have to agree with that. The timing was perfect I believe it was known that this ex-wife interview was going to play a huge part in the MSM's agenda. Perry true patriot that he is got it out there first and softened the blow.

Thank John King?

I believe I will thank Jesus Christ who overthrows the designs of the wicked to work His own purposes.

Thank you, Lord, for giving Conservatives hope!

If I am Newt Gingrich, I am taking John King and Juan Williams out to the most expensive dinners and sending their wives a fresh bouquet of roses every night! The clips of Newt’s responses to those 2 guys’ questions have been on constant rotation, non-stop, all week, all the networks free of charge to Newt! Drudge has posted the links, so Youtube is getting all these hits, free of charge.

If I am Newt, I am begging NBC to have Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddox, Chris Matthews and Al Sharpton only, to moderate the NBC debate Monday in Tampa. Don’t waste my time with Brian Williams. I want those moderators seething, foaming at the mouth, kicking, biting, hitting him with everything, hold nothing back! This is really the time when we need the wildest of the wildest leftist liberals to define the discussion for our GOP nominee. John King and Juan Williams are too moderate for me - I want the real freaks!

This is how we define the conservative vs. establishment argument. There is no question in my mind who will win the war. Go Newt!

They said the same thing about Reagan, what is your point?

Reagan lost to Carter by 18% at this point in the 80 cycle, perhaps you are too young or too old to remember.
