President 2012: Newt Gingrich – Really?
Besides George Will’s comments above and the fact that the Democrat’s salivate when mentioning Newt Gingrich as the Republican nominee, there is this sobering piece from Jennifer Rubin.
Some conservatives seem to have taken leave of their senses and/or developed a bad case of amnesia when it comes to Newt Gingrich. He’s credited with “leading the conservative movement for 25 years.” (Really? After he was booted from the speakership, what did he do to further conservative values and causes?) He’s labeled as a conviction conservative. (Really? Was hawking Freddie Mac and ethanol subsidies a pro-conservative or a pro-Newt endeavor?) He’s credited with grand accomplishments as speaker of the House. (Really? He lost the government-shutdown standoff to Bill Clinton and lambasted conservatives who objected to his penchant for excessive compromise.) He’s more mature and sober. they say. (Really? Attacking Rep. Paul Ryan for “rightwing social engineering” wasn’t exactly a responsible move.)
I really don’t think that Newt can be considered as a viable candidate.
It looks to me that the GOP should just get it over with and nominate Mitt Romney – RomneyCare and Flip Flop warts and all.
At least with Mitt, you know what you are getting…..
Day By Day by Chris Muir March 9, 2009 – Government WorkJames Carville’s recommendation that Obama put his Presidency on the line going after Rush Limbaugh has been a failure. Rush’s listeners have increased and the entire Flap has proven to be nothing but a “distraction.”
You see, Carville and his CNN buddy Paul Begala harbor personal resentment at Limbaugh who started the decline of the Bill Clinton Administration in 1994 and mocked Hillary’s primary election bid against Obama with “Operation Chaos.” You would think Rahm Emanuel and Obama would know better?
Flap supposes Rahm could NOT help himself.

President Obama Wallows in the Mud With Rush LimbaughFlap doesn’t think Obama’s political operatives are serving the President very well with this Rush Limbaugh fight.
If the first six weeks of the Barack Obama administration can be summed up in one sentence, it would be this: Obama fiddled with Rush Limbaugh while Wall Street burned. Politico reports that the demonization of Rush Limbaugh comes as a deliberate strategy by Obama and the Democrats, who hoodwinked people into believing that a Chicago Machine pol really wanted to change the partisan nature of politics.
But, then again, James Carville and Paul Begala are Charter Members of the Clinton Cabal, now aren’t they?

Poll Watch: 11 Per Cent of Republicans Say Rush Limbaugh is GOP Leader
Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh talks with guests in the East Room of the White House in Washington, prior to a Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony for Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, January 13, 2009OPERATION LIMBAUGH planned by Obama political operatives, (Obama Chief of Staff) Rahm Emanuel, James Carville and Paul Begala appears to have NO legs.
Despite efforts by the Obama political team and its surrogates to link Rush Limbaugh to the Republican Party, just 11% of GOP voters say the conservative radio commentator is the partyâ€™s leader.
Eighty-one percent (81%) of Republican voters disagree and 8% are undecided in a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Democrats, however, are closely divided– 44% say Limbaugh is the Republican leader and 41% donâ€™t believe it. Among voters not affiliated with either of the major national parties, 27% say Limbaugh is the Republicansâ€™ leader, while 58% say he is not and 15% are undecided.
American voters are seeing through this FAUX-Democrat manufactured FLAP.
After President Bush, the LEFT needs someone to demonize and then associate with the Republican Party while distracting Americans from the retread, flailing policies of the Obama Administration.
Not working, is it?
