    Politics makes strange bedfellows, and apparently so does late-night television. Wednesday on “The Tonight Show,” “Jersey Shore” star and mom-to-be Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi found herself on Jay Leno’s couch, seated next to former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. It was an odd pairing, to say the least, but by the end of the segment, Snooks and Gingrich were, to quote another New Jersey reality-TV star, “as thick as thieves.”
  • How did vaunted Romney death star break down

    Washington Examiner ^ | 17 July, 2012 | Byron York
    No matter who they supported, many Republicans felt uneasy as they watched the intra-party war unfold. Many — voters and insiders alike — remarked that when the general election campaign came around, Romney had better attack Barack Obama with the same ferocity he attacked Gingrich. (And, at other times in the primary season, Rick Perry and Rick Santorum.) Otherwise, it would look like Romney took more relish in attacking fellow Republicans than in taking on Obama. Romney had won the Republican nomination in significant part by operating a death star — a machine that could rain down holy hell on...

    Could the Romney campaign be forced to consider Pit Bull candidates such as Chris Christie or Newt Gingrich to help the GOP go on offense against Obama's unfair, untrue Romney attacks? Milktoast candidates such as Pawlenty, Condi Rice, Portman, etc. may not fit the bill.

    RUSH: Okay, the three stools of Ronald Reagan: Defeat the communists. Check. Lower American taxes to revive the economy. Check. Rebuild the military. Check. Three things. Now, what's Romney running on? Romney's running on one thing, and he'd better change it. (interruption) No, he's not doing that. He's not running on, "I'm not Obama." He's running on the economy, and he's gotta get tougher than that. He's got to branch out. The economy speaks for itself. But there's also the question here: How many people really care about that? We've got three years. Nobody's demanding this guy be thrown out?...

    Former U.S. House Speaker and one-time presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, spoke to a crowd of over 500 Republican supporters at a GOP Convention today in Missoula. "We should in fact speak well of our dreamer-in-chief. Now he can't run the economy, he ca't defend the country, he doesn't understand the Constitution, he surrounds himself with radicals who are out of touch with reality, but those are minor things," says Gingrich. "Just ask people, can they afford four more years of Barack Obama? I don't think ther's a town in this state that thinks that four more years of the pain...

    Former House speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) on Friday criticized President Obama’s executive order blocking deportations of some illegal immigrants brought to the country as children, slamming the move as an overreach by the president but also contending that it sets a "powerful precedent" for conservatives. And in a series of tongue-in-cheek, late-night tweets, Gingrich took Obama to task, contending that conservatives should draft their own list of laws from which "DREAMers" should be exempted, including the national health care law and the current tax code.

    Former candidate Newt Gingrich and billionaire businessman Donald Trump will join presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at a campaign event on Tuesday at Trump’s International Hotel in Las Vegas, according to CNN. Trump, who told Newsmax Wednesday that he is considering launching his own super PAC to produce anti-Obama ads, announced in February that he was backing Romney after his own flirtation with running for the White House. He even enjoyed a brief turn in the polls as the frontrunner. Romney's campaign is raffling a chance to have dinner with Trump for supporters. Playing off Trump’s popular television show...

    Sunday, Newt Gingrich will be on Meet the Press as a Romney surrogate. Tuesday, Newt will be campaigning with Mitt Romney and Donald Trump in Las Vegas. Could Romney be testing the Newt for VP waters? Nobody, gets TV news ratings like Gingrich. Nobody can be a campaign pitbull like Gingrich. Newt can sing many songs on TV news. The other GOP VP candidates are milk toast next to Newt. Is it possible?

    Newt Gingrich tells Newsmax that President Obama came out in support of same-sex marriage in an effort to placate powerful gay activists who tired of his “equivocating” on the issue. Asked about Newsweek’s...reference to Obama as the first gay president, [Newt] smiled and said: “Contrary to Newsweek’s clever cover I think from everything we know he’s heterosexual, so I don’t think he’s gay.” Then he got serious: “Look, he adopted the policy of his most powerful constituents. The fact is the gay caucus, the gay millionaires, gay activists are at the heart of the Obama system, and they had finally...

"To every conservative, everywhere in America: When your choice on the one hand is Barack Obama, and your choice on the other hand is Mitt Romney, no serious conservative could possibly believe that electing Barack Obama is acceptable ... for America."

    My FRiends, we might as well face the reality that we the combined pro-life conservative movement and tea party coalition have lost this round (the presidential election) in the larger battle to reclaim our constitution and our inalienable rights. Rove, Romney and the GOP-e have successfully destroyed and driven off each and every pro-life conservative tea party candidate from the race and all have surrendered to the Romney camp. It is no secret that Romney is not one of us. There is absolutely no doubt that he has never accomplished a single conservative thing in his entire political career (one...

    Fox News anchor Shep Smith, with the help of GOP veteran Ed Rollins, gave a brutal review of Newt Gingrich’s exit from the Republican presidential race – sure to exacerbate the feud between Gingrich and the conservative cable news network. Says Rollins: “He epitomhttpized the sore loser. This is a tough game, but he epitomized the sore loser.” Said Smith, harkening back to the beginning of Gingrich’s campaign: “I thought then he was delusional, and now I’m sure.” See for yourself, via the Daily Caller:
  • Gingrich exits presidential race; vows to help Romney

    05/02/2012 2:08:34 PM PDT · by South40 · 77 replies
    Newt Gingrich, the colorful former House speaker and fiery partisan, formally exited the Republican presidential contest Wednesday and vowed to help Mitt Romney's bid to defeat President Barack Obama. Ending a campaign that seesawed between implosion and frontrunner and back again, Gingrich threw his support to his one-time rival as expected and promised his supporters he would continue to push conservative ideas. Gingrich bowed out of the race more than $4 million in debt and his reputation perhaps damaged. "Today, I am suspending the campaign. But suspending the campaign does not mean suspending citizenship," Gingrich told a hotel ballroom in...

    What I saw on TV today was an Outstanding Exit Speech from Newt Gingrich. He itemized his past successes, goals and big ideas that he will continue to push. Ideas such as US Energy Independence, Personal Social Security Accounts, Brain Science Research, Debt Reduction, Conservative Judges, etc. So what do Shepherd Smith and Ed Rollins talk about after the speech. Shep said Newt was delusional. Rollins said Newt gave one of the worst exit speeches ever. They did not comment on the specifics of any of the exciting ideas that Newt wants to continue to push. I am convinced the...
