Brutal Gingrich Super PAC ad: Meet the men who gave us ObamaCare
Hot Air ^ | 1/24/2012 | Allahpundit

Posted on 01/24/2012 3:20:35 PM PST by TBBT

Philip Klein calls it the best anti-RomneyCare ad of the cycle. I agree. And thanks to the largesse of Newt’s billionaire buddy Sheldon Adelson, this one’s going on the air in Florida with a $6 million ad buy — so huge that WaPo political blogger Aaron Blake calls it “game-changing.” In fact, despite Newt’s post-South Carolina windfall of campaign cash, it sounds like his Super PAC will be doing the heavy organizational lifting from now on:

Whoo Hoo! bttt

Mitt’s already spent over 7 million. Phone’s been ringing off the hook, Mitt’s fliers have been stuffing our mail boxes and anti-Gingrich ads bombarding the local TV and radio for weeks.

The seniors here in Florida know they got screwed by Obamacare. Even my Democrat neighbors told me they will never vote Democrat again after they all voted for Obamacare and the Republicans did not. This ad will definitely get the job done to sink Romney!

BULLSEYE! If I hear Romney say one more time that he is a [c]onservative, I will probably utilize the TV for target practice. Romney is no Conservative! Why doesn't he just run as a democRAT, he could probably beat the O.

The Republican establishment is going to destroy this party if they continue to tell us who we can or cannot elect. They did such a good job nominating McLame, why shouldn't we listen to them again? After all, we are just dumb hicks who like cockfighting.

Mitt could use that ad as his resume if he ever wanted to switch party elites like old Arlen Specter did.

It appears the rank in file if not the elite is showing him the door.

Mittwitts will have to call a whaaaamubulance after this. Hope it’s covered by RomneyCare so the rest of us taxpayers don’t have to pay for it.

This is how you hit Romney. Not with Bain and tax returns. Much better, Newt.

seniors say that now. Just wait.

I saw in 2008 a senior WWII vet go from “no way obama” to “well we need a change” and vote for the commie.

Seniors are easy to scare. just say “social security in danger” and they will sell their cats.

What’s Glen Beck going to say about this? Isn’t he all about “don’t vote for progressives”?

From the article:

"...this one’s going on the air in Florida with a $6 million ad buy..."

The thing I saw in the ad that was the game changer was Mitt standing with Ted Kennedy.

Which is worse Mitt standing with Ted Kennedy or Newt sitting with Nancy Pelosi.Obamacare passed, Cap and Trade didn’t

All right!!! I too am from North Central Kansas. By the time the primaries get to us...it is all over. So I hope and pray the people of Florida choose wisely for those of us who will never have the opportunity to make our choice. I think Mr. Newt should be very careful and know that the republican establishment will pull out all stops to keep him from the nomination.

I was under the mistaken understanding that it was WE THE PEOPLE who will make that choice. Remember, they also told Reagan he could never win the Primary, and certainly would never become President. I am a conservative woman, married 40 years, and I don’t give a crap about Mr. Newt’s personal life 10+ years ago. I know he will take the argument to the President and the American people.

Mr. Newt, like Ms. Sarah, has been and will be vilified by first the Republicans, then from the Illinois machine for Mr. O. I hope you all listened to Rush yesterday, Mitch Daniels is being asked by that same republican establishment to reconsider a run. Like Daniels has no baggage. WOW! The establishment will not choose for us this time. WE THE PEOPLE will choose this time, and the republican establishment be damned!

Devastating and Pinochio-free, as a proper negative ad should be!
