George Will: ‘We’re at the horrid stage with Newt Gingrich’ [VIDEO]
DailyCaller ^ | January 29, 2012 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 01/29/2012 9:22:37 AM PST by maggief

EXCERPT

“I don’t know if you have ever told Longfellow’s nursery rhyme to your 4-year-old daughter, Alice,” Will said to Tapper, reciting:

There is a little girl Who had a little curl Right in the middle of her forehead, When she was good, She was very good indeed, When she was bad, She was horrid.

“We’re at the horrid stage with Newt Gingrich,” Will concluded.

If this douchebag is upset, Newt may well succeed.

I saw and heard him. He discounts the false attack ads thrown at Newt and Donna Brazille was very interesting on that show as she said all the Romney people are following Newt around and trying to make him look “crazy” to media. She said she wondered why he is not fighting this. She said he was the only conservative in ‘94 who fought the Democrats and won against them. ISN’T IT AMAZING TO HEAR THE DEMOCRAT TELLING THE TRUTH HERE?

Will is ABC’s idea of a “Republican”...kinda like David Brooks is the NEW YORK TIMES idea of a “Republican”. You know, Books announced he was voting for Obama in ‘08...I wonder just who Will voted for...?

Will’s wife worked for Perry, she likely switched to Romney when Perry blew up. With these guys it’s all about being with the winner...even if the winner doesn’t win in November.

The K Street gravey train must continue...it will under Obama/Romney...Newt might try and change the game...can’t have that.

At some point, the GOP needs to consider something very seriously. They are having so much fun attacking Newt. They have relentlessly attacked the TEA movement since day one.
They supported Crist and Murkowski over solid TEA alternatives.

But as much fun as they are having,, I care less about them every single time i encounter them. They cannot win without me. And i am not alone. Have fun with your childish poem Will.

Will is also a die hard Orioles fan. They haven’t had a winning or, at the very least, a .500 season since 1997. His relevance on political matters has faded in kind.

Romney is the blind trust candidate, the detached technocrat who’s Presidency will be like his campaign - to simply let those already on the inside keep sucking at the trough as his minions do his dirty work to keep his name clean and shiny. Meanwhile, the guy out in the Midwest trying to start a business that will employ his friends and neighbors and boost the economy will be left out in the cold.

Romney will never make it past the thugs of the Left. He will get schooled at his own game and they will destroy him to a smoldering heap and give Zero another 4 years. Mitt only has the fight to destroy fellow Republicans but he’ll go all quisling the second he meets with his real opposition on the other side.

Ever since Mae West, when a little girl's bad, she's better.
That's the society we have now, so Will's not striking a chord with anyone who might actually remember the original rhyme.

"Time is not Newt Gingrich’s friend because the more time he has the more he talks,” Will commented."
No, GEORGIE, the more time the Speaker has to talk the more it stings you wee little GOP A$$ES.
I want a candidate who isn't "microphone friendly".
I expect to be pissed now and again.
I'm not looking for perfection in front of a camera.
(I'll leave that to the "Teleprompter Queen" and the smirking two-faced Mittiot.)
I want passion and fire to run you chimps out of DC.

The late Dale Earnhardt said, and I paraphrase:
"I don't care if they (the fans) cheer or boo. I must be doing something right. It's when they're silent that bothers me."

You wanna feel good about yourself America or get well?
Ya got'em making racket Newt!

With wits not as sharp as his quill
At Newt he would pen
Words of venom and then
Nothing more was ‘ere heard of him still.

Once I had a thrill
To hear the measured tones of George Will
Parry the liberal hysterics

Now I am repelled
By Will’s thin doggerel
And the cocktail party bonhomie of right-wing “mavericks”.

Unfortunately Newt is proving the naysayers correct over the last week or so with these recent examples of a lack discipline and/or judgement. Whether Romney is a “manical” liar or not, the fact that he used the word “manical” in describing Romney was just plain stupid. One thing I learned a long time ago is that what someone says about someone else frequently says much more about the person talking than the person they are talking about. Given the widely discussed criticisms of Newt, one would think Newt could summon up the discipline necessary to avoid clearly inflammatory language that makes him appear petulant.

And then there is the moon colonization fiasco. You have got to be kidding me.

We’ve got big problems - maybe the GA eligibility case will get some legs and turn into something positive, but I think that is a longshot.

They supported Crist and Murkowski over solid TEA alternatives.

Don't forget THEIR support for Dede Scuzzafava!

If we're lucky Newt will realize he can't posssibly win and drop out over FL. That will leave enough time for conservatives to unite behind Rick Santorum and nominate a conservative.

Look...he went into FL less than 2 weeks a ago a prohibitive favorite and now is down 12 points or more. And it is entirely HIS fault. We should thank God for the FL primary...it's shown us just what a horrid candidate Newt would be in the Fall!

Santorum needs to get out and endorse Newt so that Romney can be dealt with.

Newt has more money and organization which you need to beat the Romney machine.

Why is it that people willingly choose to ignore Santorum’s role in playing party politics and supported the old comic Spector? Anyone remember what role Spector played getting ObamaCare passed.....? I was just as ticked over the support of Dede as anyone else, but I am not willing to ignore reality and pretend like Santorum is a saint. He played party politics and look what ‘we the people’ received. Anybody heard any apologies from Santorum for paving the road to BamBamKennedy ‘death-care’. NO he puffs himself up as if he is the only ‘pro-life’ conservative... ha!!!

Oh, come now. It's just a matter of style:

All-time popular-at-FR Victor Davis Hanson "there is very little actual difference between the two [Romney & Gingrich] candidates at all (which might, counterintuitively, explain the animus: personal characteristics, style, comportment, class, and background instead are the main differences between the candidates, hence the clumsily dubbed “Tea Party vs. Country Club” rivalry).

Santorum isn’t my choice. To me, he comes across as a little odd. And interesting concept,, that a guy who doubles Santorum in the polls, should drop out and endorse the one who just survives a few points above Paul.
The obvious answer of course, is that Santorum should drop out and throw his support to Newt.

And another Santorum vulture flies to his branch.

Columnist George Will’s wife, Mari Maseng, has offered her services as an adviser to three candidates this election season.

In addition to her current work for the Perry campaign and her earlier work for the Bachmann campaign, a source knowledgeable of the situation tells us that Maseng sought out a role with the Romney campaign in June.

On June 28, Maseng went to Boston and met with multiple, “high-level officials” in the Romney campaign about joining on as an adviser. No formal offer was ever made, according to the source.

Funny how petulant and horrid Newt brought tears to the eyes of those who watched his speech last night. How long has it been since a man or woman inspired such pride and hope for our country? I guess that same quality is in Sarah. For a man who had received the onslaught of dirty tricks and lies that he has to sit with Greta on his bus and discuss calmly and confidently his campaign and his hope for our future shows us the mettle of the man.

I never hated Newt because I didn't think he betrayed us. It was the linguine spine GOP congressmen who betrayed Newt. They are the ones who got weak knees in the Clinton government shutdown, fearing for their seats in the next election. That phobia is still at work in DC and it will continue until we convince the politicians to fear the conservative base more than they do the media and liberal factions. And that "ain't gonna happen" if we cave each general election and vote for the GOP elite's chosen moderate acceptable candidate. They don't support us, why should we support them?
