News flash! Newt opposes billionaires buying elections!

Writing in Human Events, Newt Gingrich condemns a plan by Karl Rove to raise a lot of money from billionaires and intervene in GOP primaries on behalf of more mainstream, supposedly more electable candidates:

“I am unalterably opposed to a bunch of billionaires financing a boss to pick candidates in 50 states. This is the opposite of the Republican tradition of freedom and grassroots small-town conservatism.

No one person is smart enough nor do they have the moral right to buy nominations across the country.

That is the system of Tammany Hall and the Chicago machine. It should be repugnant to every conservative and every Republican.”

Newt, have you met this man?

SHeldon-Adelson

His name is Sheldon Adelson. I would have thought that you two knew each other, but apparently not. (Look again … is it the sunglasses throwing you off?)

However, as a man who is “unalterably opposed” to the notion of billionaires buying elections, you should know that Adelson — a casino owner with an estimated net worth of more than $20 billion — gave you and your associated SuperPACS some $30 million in an effort to buy you, Newt Gingrich, the 2012 GOP nomination.

And after you imploded — who saw that one coming, right? — Adelson reportedly went on to give an additional $100 million to other SuperPACs, including up to $40 million to those run by Rove.

Knowing how you feel about such things, I’m sure you’re deeply embarrassed that you let such a thing happen. Say hi to Callista!

Your friend,

– Jay Bookman

Well, anyone with the money to do it will buy elections. Even those elected buy elections by favoring those who support them. As example, Obama buys Mexicans, gays, dependents, unions, academics, simply by supporting them. So one hand washes the other.

Let’s not discuss the idiocy of people who actually bought that “promise” NO ONE can promise “transparency” in government until they are actually in a position to do so AND have come to realize that it’s not always possible.

Geez Jay, you gotta let this thing against Newt go. It’s sure to be causing you grief, even subconsciously.

And, there is a big difference between backing with money a specific candidate, versus giving money to pick multiple candidates.

Rove points out his PAC is not against Tea Party candidates and did, in fact, give many dollars, if not millions, to some Tea Party backed candidates. His whole objective, according to him, are to prevent primary winners of the caliber you love to write about.

“And, there is a big difference between backing with money a specific candidate, versus giving money to pick multiple candidates.”

That did not come out exactly as I intended.

The tradional way is to give money to the candidates you back, not give money to a PAC who will try to control the primary winners. That may be 6 of one, half dozen of the other. Nonetheless, it is not traditional.

Stock in defense corporations that get cushy no-bid contracts to guard and build stuff in countries we invade though they never attacked us? Life-long investor buddies who set him up in companies and tell him when to bail on his stock?

Jay picks up on dinky stories he can find that are perceived as negative towards republicans but disregards the larger stories in the news such as the one cited by other posters here about the poll worker voting six times for Obama and seeing nothing wrong with it. Jay, who consistently has charged that there is no widespread voter fraud, will overlook these stories, to be sure. And I won’t hold my breath to see if he comments on the democrat in Colorado who thinks women with guns who are afraid of being raped will lose their cool and shoot the place up. Citing that story wouldn’t fit Jay’s template that it’s republicans who are waging a war against women. Here’s the link:

A shotgun is the weapon of choice for home defense. When you’re surrounded by woods and have no nearby neighbors as Joe explained, you CAN fire off a few rounds without fear of hurting an innocent neighbor. Even with my neighbors being less than 50 feet away, I would rather them fire off a shotgun blast instead of an AR-15. The whole overpenetration thing is possibly worse than replacing vinyl siding when it comes to hitting one of my daughters.

OK, I honestly did a little work, but must respond to Granny and Brosephus.

First, I have a regular shotgun, like for bird hunting, a tactical shotgun for home defense, a 9MM pistol, and a S&W 15 MP which is the dreaded assault rifle. A big concern in home defense is missing the target, thus the short barrel shotgun.

Problem with Biden’s BS is, what makes him think during a home invasion his wife, or even him and his wife, could make it out to the deck before the intruders get them? Secret service aside, of course.

OK, I honestly did a little work, but must respond to Granny and Brosephus.

First, I have a regular shotgun, like for bird hunting, a tactical shotgun for home defense, a 9MM pistol, and a S&W 15 MP which is the dreaded assault rifle. A big concern in home defense is missing the target, thus the short barrel shotgun.

Problem with Biden’s BS is, what makes him think during a home invasion his wife, or even him and his wife, could make it out to the deck before the intruders get them? Secret service aside, of course.

He can’t. His remarks are ridiculous like too many things he states.

Did JohnnyReb just make a case for gun control?

A comment on Obama becoming a millionaire.

It is very apparent he enjoys being one while hell bent to prevent others from becoming one.

When he talks taxing the rich folks, he really means taxing people with high income. High income does not always mean rich.

There are two kinds of rich people: those with millions of assests, you know the ones taxed at 15% of which he has done nothing, and those who have high income who are dependent on that income to be rich – if their income goes down they are not rich anymore; they don’t have the millions in assests.

Obama is taxing more the people who are not truly millionaires. The bluecollars who have worked their way to high income. His Wall Street and Hollywood friends have not been touched as to paying more taxes.
