Gingrich PAC: ‘Don’t let liberal Republican establishment pick candidate’

Winning Our Future, the Super PAC acting on behalf of Newt Gingrich, has launched this ad in Iowa – an appeal for the most conservative heart of that state’s GOP:

The eye-popping message:

”Don’t let the liberal Republican establishment pick our candidate.”

“Welcome” back – most here are thrilled to see your constant attacks on Republicans and their legislation which you so abhor. Your AJC, and your blog – so keep it up until your readership is comprised of PURE liberals.

Here’s a sincere welcome back! I’ve truly missed your blogs. Please keep us informed on this very entertaining reality show The Republican Circus of Stars!

Centrist, who did you hound while Jim was off?
The reason for the political coverage of the GOP now is they have the contest. If you would challenge the president then maybe there would be something else to write about

For the last 15 years Newt has been the ideal member of the Liberal Republican Establishment..

But there are enough Republican voters who are ignorant of his background to take his dangling bait hook. line and sinker.

One should refer to his PhD dissertation on “Belgian Education Policy in the Congo” to understand that Newt’s worldview is driven by Congolese anti-colonial resentment of white European domination of a subject peoples.

I never thought I’d see the day that Republicans would vilify their own by the use of the perjorative “liberal”.

It’s funny to see this come full circle.

Newt is a big-headed career nut job who doesn’t deserve to be elected…but still that’s better than the Socialist clown who is over his head that’s in office now!

“For the last 15 years Newt has been the ideal member of the Liberal Republican Establishment.”

Ain’t that the truth, Newt wrote this a few years back,

“The most exciting development of the past few weeks is what has been happening up in Massachusetts. The health bill that Governor Romney signed into law this month has tremendous potential to effect major change in the American health system. We agree entirely with Governor Romney and Massachusetts legislators that our goal should be 100% insurance coverage for all Americans.”

Newt and his fellow liberal Republican opponent, Biff Romney, are bff’s.

Bachmann is the ideal GOP candidate. She has all the conservative bona fides and she’s better prepared than Perry or Cain (RIP).

Did I mention that she is completely unelectable?

Santorum is the ideal GOP candidate. He has all the conservative bona fides and he’s better prepared than Perry or Cain (RIP).

Did I mention that he’s completely unelectable?

Huntsman…no. Perry….no. Romney….no. Paul….no. Gingrich….no.

Looks like the Kenyan wins by default. Again.

The Republican Tea Party is on the wrong side of history. Extend the Bush Tax cuts for zillionaires but raise the payroll tax on the working poor. Allow banks to swindle their way to record “profits” but terminate unemployment insurance to those who need it for food. Give BP a tax break to put oil in the Gulf of Mexico but call for the end of the Department of Energy. Americans have become a kind of international laughing stock.

“liberal Republican”?

There hasn’t been a moderate Republican for decades, much less a “liberal” one. The Republican Party has gone over to the far, far Right so much they don’t even understand the word anymore.

I’m so glad Jim is back from vacation–Wingfield has a meltdown every time someone crawls under his tissue-thin skin. Posting on his blog was a glimpse into a conservative helltopia where freedom is touted left and right but if you actually say something that goes against the grain, Kyle will cry and remove your comment.

There is no such thing as a conservative. Everyone is liberal, just for different things. Republicans are liberals for the wealthy and military-industrial complex–all of them. The last Republican who actually cut spending was Ike.

I’m not a liberal for anything other than individual liberty. Which in the eyes of socialist liberals makes me an old government hating anti-altruist Mossback.

A clarification is different from a contradiction. Conservative means slow to change. Big Government socialist and liberals have been trying to quickly rid this country of individualism from its’ very beginning and they are still at the task today as conservatives continue oppose more government regulatory controls over our everyday lives and liberties.

Can someone explain to me what a liberal republican is please?

I’ve never heard that phrase, but then again I gave up on the American political process years ago, so I’ve been a little out of touch, Thank God. Oops, can I say God?

Does that mean I get to give up on paying taxes too? Didn’t think so.

Strom Thurmond used to claim he was for individual liberty, which in his mind did not extend to the hired help having the liberty to say no to his sexual advances.

It’s hard to believe that people still think (and post that they do although under a pseudonym) Barak Obama is “Kenyan” or a socialist. I thought having a the President’s birth certificate “long form” put in Trump’s mouth would shut him and most everybody up about his citizenship. I realize that the people who accuse Obama of being a socialist have no concept of the word but it would seem that a president whose policy has lower marginal tax rates than Reagan (Reagan had a top marginal tax rate of 50%!!!) would be heralded by conservatives.

Reagan was a commie with his highly progressive tax rates! Obama is moderate relative to that wealth redistributing, class warefare, commie pinko forn’r (California) Reagan.

I think I can explain what a liberal Republican is. It is one who put on this country’s uniform and put their life on the line in it’s defense. A conservative republican is one whose guilt for not doing so causes them to question your patriotism.

The story about Newt that didn’t gain traction is the one where he was paid thousand of dollars to “advise” Freddie Mac. What’s interesting about this is that the advice Newt said he told FM, both John Sunnunu and Chuck Hagle to Freddie Mac the same thing for no fee!
