Fox News anchor on Newt Gingrich: ‘Now I’m sure’ he’s delusional

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 cable news network that serves as the path by which Republicans communicate with each other.

Says Rollins: “He epitomized 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.”

“TD you are the epitome of a sore loser also.”

I have been a ABO since the day one. Romney is the nominee and I have already sent him a check and will be very happy when he becomes the next President of the United States. Sore loser would be if the dumb masses re elected the current communist in chief.

@ td. . . .why do you guys seem to have an affinity for those who are ethically challenged. Newt was run out of Washington and became to poster boy for the Tea Party and Deal was run out of Washington and ended up as governator of Georgia?

So, basically, anyone who thinks the Gingrich campaign was a joke is a “lib”. Geez.

[...] from the presidential race. Jim Galloway links to a Fox News guy calling Gingrich “delusional.” What do you expect from a campaign that hired “Moby Dick [...]

Even better was his assessment after reading that Romney had kind words for the Newt:

“Mitt Romney has released a statement on the departure of Newt Gingrich from the campaign. It reads in part: ‘Ann and I are proud to call Newt and Callista friends. We look forward to working with them in the months and years ahead.’ That from Mitt Romney.

“Politics is weird and creepy and now I know lacks even the loosest attachment to anything like reality.”

I LIKE THIS GUY SHEP

td: “Newt is a great American hero!!!!”

Do you ever say this out loud, around, like, real people?
The people who don’t start laughing right away, do they know who Newt is?

People who can’t spell or pronounce the President’s name correctly, or continue to refer to him as “Marxist” or “Communist” only show their blatant immaturity and utter contempt for education as they demonstrate no comprehension of the words they use. The pure hate and racism exhibited by these people is palpable.

“America”: Would that be SOUTH America, Canada, or Mexico? Because YOUR “america” (a.k.a “AmeriKKKa” ) is actually a pretty $h***y place. What a self-centered POS.

TD this is not news to anyone, because everyone knows your hatred for the POTUS. So why wouldn’t you send money to republican nominee. I mean after all you’ve been licking their boot straps for months now. I’ve sent money to the Obama campaign, so big freaking deal.

Newt a hero? Wow….you’ve just insulted the true heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice for this country and the thousands of veterans who put their lives on the line and our current military serving across the globe. How can you live with yourself td after that comment?

So know the Liberal Media Elite that Republicans have railed about for years is to include the Fox News Network? Is no one safe?

You cannot be “The Number One Cable News Network” and “The Liberal Media.”

The media all spin but they spin in much more complicated ways than left and/or right, even if left is primarily what MSNBC does and right is primarily what Fox does.

Anyone who lumps all ‘the media’ into one core group is basically saying, “Except the truth as I think it.” And really…do you want to listen to such a person?

This isn’t rocket science folks, but America, especially moderate cows seem incapable of grasping it.

Sad really.

Liberals do not hate Newt, they have sympathy. 1. For all his hype, Newt does deserve credit for working with Clinton to get things done. 2. We can’t as much for Boehner’s record who stabbed Newt in the back. 3. I now see why Boehner has such a problem with Pelosi. She is a real leader who kept Congress working. Anyone remember CryBaby whining about having a four-day work week? SMH.

call me lib since I disagree with you, and that’s what you apparently call anyone who does.

actually, “your kind” is what is wrong with the GOP…no ability to think. at times, newt actually performs some mental effort, i.e., social engineering is wrong whether left or right…but then he starts talking and forgets what he’s thought about.

Did Bain Capital Buy Clear Channel in 2008

Romney said that FOX News is his “true believers.” Now he is trying to spin this. Isn’t Hannity on FOX News?

Bain Capital bought Clear Channel (Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, savage, etc) in 2008?

http://www.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeedpolitics/limbaugh-defending-romney-has-bain-tie

Limbaugh told his listeners in early April about this? What about the others? Shouldn’t they have told their listeners about his back in early 2011 when Romney announced his candidacy for the presidency? I have seen no proof that they did this back then.
