Thanks to Dan Riehl for this.
Theres a short excerpt of a 1988 C-SPAN video purportedly showing Newt Gingrich bashing Reagan when talking about how Bush, Sr. should run. As I suspected, its edited to give a false impression. What you dont see is immediately after when Gingrich praises Reaganism and the Reagan platform. If you cant watch it all, it begins at about 2:30 in to confirm its the same segment. Its the minute or two afterward you also need to hear to understand that Newt wasnt bashing Reagan at all.
See Video here...go viral.

Rush played that on his radio show today.
Are you suggesting there is deception going on? I’m shocked!
A caller tried to explain that to Rush today, but Rush was having nothing to do with it.
“builds on Reaganism but beyond Reaganism”
I heard a little bit of what Rush said, he seemed to present it as factual.
To put it mildly—what you hear on Limbaugh’s show these days is not certain to be accurate.
The part debunking it or the part where he supposedly bashes Reagan?
Drudge will surely run a retraction...
I listened to a few minutes of Rush today. He started with “The attacks on the Republican candidates are horrible.” He continued with “Newt is horrible.” I thought he was going to turn the “Newt is horrible” into a commentary about the attacks in general, but I was wrong. His point was “Newt is horrible”. The dissonance was palpable. I thought it was a parody, but the punch line never came.
So Limbaugh presented the chopped version as fake but accurate? Or simply accurate?
Can we get this viral?
No, he said he was made aware of Riehl’s post on this and that he was having Cookie evaluate it.
I won’t agree to be led by these lying swine. Obama’s at least winning points on honesty.
Posters will do what they can. It’s also possible that Jim can tack it up on FR as he has done with other stuff. You might try asking him in FReepmail.
Thanks for the info.
Yea but it did not stop those RINO’s shrilling for their establishment boy this morning on here and all over talk radio and Drudge and yes YOU FOX.
We have to get the message out and we cannot let these establishment types win and force out the base. This RINO has now said he will not overturn obamacare WTH.
This is a white obama and I’ve just had one pster say to me she won’t vote for Newt because it seems weird why all the talking heads are against him
Another poster said that those friends or family down in FL will vote for Rick even though he will drop out soon.
I swear I only thought the left had sheep and trusted this MSM.
yes but it will not stop those groupies who listen to talk radio on some of these talk shows to still treat the host like a messiah and then believe what they say as fact.
Rush is lazy. He should know better, instead of running with this. He has a memory too assume, like I do. TEll mr. Rush that his buddy in TExas is disappointed. He will know who it is. I supported him with money and time in the early years, back when he did his homework. How embarrassing.
