Bombastic Gingrich draws Republican ire

Newt Gingrich: The mouth that roared

When Newt Gingrich stepped down as Speaker of the House and resigned from Congress amid an ethics scandal over a book deal and revelations that he was once again dumping a wife because of an affair with a younger woman, Republicans on Capitol Hill breathed a sign of relief.

Newt was gone…or so they thought.

Gingrich may have left elected office but he did not disappear into the shadows as so many in the GOP hoped.

“Newt Gingrich is a political vampire,” one former aide tells Capitol Hill Blue.  “It would take a wooden stake to kill his ego, his ambition and his bloodlust for power.”

Even as his Presidential campaigns plummets into the depths of also-rans, Republicans once again shake their heads and wonder what it will take to rid their party of the cancer called Newt Gingrich.

“Newt Gingrich is not stable,” Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu told a radio interviewer in December.

Sununu adds:

He has a personal priority over all else. The country comes maybe second or third. Philosophy comes maybe fifth. Enough is enough, this man is not stable.

Sununu stepped up his criticism this week, saying Gingrich is “un-Republican” and “coming out of left field” with his kamikaze attacks on fellow GOP Presidential contender Mitt Romney.

South Carolina Republican Rep. Tim Scott says Gingrich is trying to “cannibalize” the Republican party and warned that a 28-minute attack commercial against Mitt Romney, funded by a Las Vegas casino owner who supports the former Speaker, helps President Barack Obama in his effort to win a second term.

“The winner of the 28-minute commercial is Barack Obama,” Scott said in an interview with Fox News.

Gingrich has also drawn fire from right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh, conservative writer Michelle Malkin and tea party Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina.

“Newt is being an asshole,” says a GOP consultant.  “That’s his real talent.”

    Speaker Gingrich is a political Charlie Sheen. Both men started out realizing they had a talent for their chosen field. The problem was that neither one could control themselves when they attained a certain celebrity.

    Gingrich is a very emotional man who has been set aside by his own party due to his own history of losing control. He is a talented leader until challenged. He cannot take criticism and it triggers a very well developed vocabulary.

    Women tend to lure him into making really bad choices and he always returns to women for his times of shelter. I have a hard time trying to figure out his latest wife as she has a cold air about her with the illusion of the super Christian. I get the feeling she is harboring a real asshole and when he falls flat she will pray and dump him.

    He could have had a marvellous career in politics but the lack of self control did him in. His hatred for Islam would take us into the final war of destruction. I don’t care if he is an Evangelical, I do not want to lose America for the actions of a psycho.

    I speak as someone who has followed his career even before he was Speaker. He is a Republican to the core and left his individual choices at the door. I would love to have had him on my side of the Party but it would have meant leading the rest of us into those missing individual freedoms. He looksd at all of us as a collective to be brought under control.

      I meant to compliment you Ms. Price on your psychological profiling of Newt Gingrich. Spot-on I must say and I concur.

        Carl, I have known him for years. I’ve read all his books and listened to his lectures on CSPAN. He has a brilliant mind but like many brains, he has little in the way of respect for the people who question him. He can’t stay behind his own oath of fidelity to his women or his oath to protect the Constitution. I was married to the same type of man. He not only cannot trust others; he cannot trust himself.

        Thank you for your kind words.

    Newt Gingrich is not stable,” Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu told a radio interviewer in December.

    Why are the media baron even giving this “unstable” clown air time? All they are doing is pumping up his over-inflated ego.

    The media now seems to be doing a marvelous job of ignoring Ron Paul. When they DO decide to write about him it’s to report that his ideas are “whacky” and that he is “unelectable”.

    But not Newt.

    Why?

    Why?

    Just because?

    Maybe the question to ask is: “Who owns the media?” And then, search out the why’s, when’s, and how’s that any respective outlet might, in some way, expose the purpose it or they creates a bias regarding any person, place, or thing?

      Hi Gregg,

      I’m thinking you and others might like to know who are the 25 richest media moguls in the world along with their estimated fortunes.

      http://www.businessinsider.com/how-the-25-richest-people-in-media-got-that-way-2010-9#25-david-hearst-jr-18-billion-1

      In order to do forensics as to where their allegiances lie one will have to analyze the types of media and also their ethnic and political ties, such as dual citizenship issues or non U.S. in nature. etc.

      For starters is to follow the money and the fact they are all obscenely wealthy so they certainly don’t want a Ron Paul et al. of his ‘ilk’ upsetting their media based applecart so too other wealthy billionaires that aren’t media related. They are all in the same club and we aren’t in it.

      Without me stating so publicly I think folks will realize in short order which moguls are behind the intense efforts to submarine Ron Paul’s political putsch to our highest office.

      Go Ron Paul…down with corrupt oligarchs for all time and places…! : |

    Gregg nailed it without saying it directly.

    Media censorship is alive and well.

    • griff  January 15, 2012 at 8:23 am

      I guess that would be the reason for Gingrich et al. having mere supporters while Paul has “cult-like followers?”

      Funny that during the 2008 campaign, amidst all the fainting and glassy-eyed adoration of the One, we never heard that term applied to Obama’s “supporters.”

  6. woody188  January 12, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    The “commercial” referenced is here. Note no one says any of the information is wrong, just that he shouldn’t be attacking a fellow Republican when he doesn’t have a chance to win himself.

    Another thing I learned today: There have been 14+ million people added to food stamp programs since the “recovery” began in 2009. Is this not proof enough the government is lying to you?

    Did you know that when you include the number of soldiers that have committed suicide or died from injuries sustained in theater that our casualty numbers in the “War on Terror” are now greater than the lives lost during the Vietnam conflict?

    So do you believe them when they count the votes, or tell you who is polling the highest when they are certainly willing to lie to you about WMD, economics, and lives lost in their illegal wars?

    Did you know that we are stationing 9,000 troops and another aircraft carrier in Israel for a joint readiness engagement against Iran?

    Do we really need to invade another country, Iran being the 5th since 2001? (Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, and now Iran. Who is next, Syria?)

    This doesn’t seem like the acts of a Republic working for its own defense. What does it seem like to you?

    What other country preemptively invaded countries claiming they were going to attack them and did so after a false flag event to consolidate their political power in their own country?

    Look it up dear…

    • Carl Nemo **==  January 12, 2012 at 10:23 pm

      Thanks Woody188 for the link to the anti-Romney political advertisement along with your superb commentary.

      I’ve researched Romney over time and it seems the guy fits the bill for a soulless,’pirate capitalist’. Greed is good for sure with this guy.

      Even when he speaks with his endless flip-flop delivery, it’s scary to behold because one senses he’s acting more like an automaton rather than a flesh and blood being. His eyes seemed glazed over, his entire persona one of a synthetic nature; I.E., a corporate wolf in ‘sheeps clothing’.

      Why the hard-working people in N.H. fell for his b.s. is beyond me. If they think this guy is going to be our “El Cid” to deliver this nation from globalism run amok, they are sorely mistaken.

      I hope the folks in S.C. and beyond focus on the fine details of his background and phony campaign schtick as delivered by this video production, courtesy of Gingrich & Co.

      They need to jettison Mitt and Newt too as viable candidates while they need to focus on Ron Paul as to what he can possibly deliver for America as our citizen friendly CEO. If it’s just his “veto pen”, along with his power as “Commander in Chief” of our armed forces in terms of pulling the plug on our foreign adventurism then that will be good enough for me. Judge Napolitano a Fox News legal commentator refers to him as the “Thomas Jefferson” of our times and methinks the good judge is spot-on. It’s surprising that Fox even allowed him to broadcast such thought-provoking views considering the fact they are perennially linked with being an establishment supportive broadcast entity.

      I urge folks to view “What if the Establishment are Lying to Us about Ron Paul?”…”What’s the Plan?” hosted by Judge Napolitano. It’s both thought provoking and stills the consciousness at the same time in terms of how the movers and shakers that control our media have limited our horizons to that of duopoly who provides more of the same with little to no hope for national respite from their clutches.

      http://www.infowars.com/judge-napolitano-what-if-the-establishment-is-lying-to-us-about-ron-paul/

      If you want more of the same then vote for Mitt, Newt, Rick or whomever else might pop to the surface post this high theater nomination process. If so, you’ll surely end up getting the government you sorely deserve and worse in spades.

      The USS America needs a sea change concerning its course which is a terminal encounter with a financial iceberg field. We’re now in the sweephand mode to the midnight of our destruction.

      Believe it…!

        What if Judge Napolitano, Alex Jones, and Ron Paul are all part of a “controlled opposition” operation?

        Think about it. The FBI has been grooming and creating the recent “terrorists” that it then arrests. The CIA created al Qaeda. The people we are dealing with do not like to leave things up to chance.

        What if Ron Paul gets the most donations from current military members because it’s a convenient way for the Pentagon to funnel “free speech” into elections?

        Maybe Ron Paul’s campaign is just making it easier to identify the new enemy scapegoat “terrorists” that will later be targeted by Homeland Security. They stated in 2008 the Ron Paul supporters should be detained as potential terrorists.

        We are under full spectrum dominance. Do not for an instance believe anything as it is presented, particularly on television. Why exactly would Fox and Rupert Murdoch allow Judge Napolitano such leeway while controlling the message so much more tightly on their other programs?

        Perhaps its because the appearance of an opposition galvanizes the partisan base and keeps those in actual opposition more passive because they believe they are represented in the media and Congress.

        • Carl Nemo **==  January 13, 2012 at 1:11 pm

          Excellent point Woody which would affirm the idea that our entire societal construct is like “The Matrix” as in the movie. You’d make an excellent counterintel operative. : )

          All I can say is it will take genuine iconoclasts such as ourselves and the fact that possibly Judge Napolitano, Alex Jones, Ron Paul et al. aren’t compromised as you so suggest. If so, then I guess we’re all screwed. : (

          I’ll drop the ‘M’ from Nemo and become ‘Neo’ dosed out on more than a couple of “red pills”. I’m assuming you’ve already taken boxcar load. :D So we’ll cast off and pilot our “Nebuchadnezzar” of thought loaded with incisive commentary hoping to awake others to all the possibilities as you so describe in your reply which includes the dark side of what is perceived as ‘truth’.

          Evidently to find the truth in our times one has to become a “cesspool of cynicism”…no? / : |

    The most important thing anyone can do for Ron Paul is to keep him in the Primaries in one of the top three. Once we get closer to the final election, it is my hope Paul will firm up his opposition to the threat of wars and start slimming down the federal government power.

    There are many ways to clean out the corruption even within the GOP that need to be addressed. Once the corruption can be described, all he has to do is to promise to fix it.

    The one person who is working on this corruption mess is Dylan Ratigan. His book “Greedy Bastards” is more than an expose’ of our government leaders and he actually describes how we can fix it. He is not endorsing any candidate.

    • Carl Nemo **==  January 14, 2012 at 6:15 pm

      Thanks Ms. Price for your thoughts and the recommendation for Dylan Ratigan’s book “Greedy Bastards”. I acquired a copy today and plan on reading it this evening. : )

      I also thought folks might like to watch a interview conducted by Dylan with former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer also a former prosecuting attorney and AG pursuing mob and corporate related criminal activities. Truly a stunning interview. I admire Eliot due to his incredible legal acumen and intellect including his very sharp ‘machinegun’ style delivery on issues. He’s one “bright bulb” for sure. It’s too bad his pedestrian level, sexual dalliances were his undoing. No big deal to me, but that’s how our braindead, kneejerk society operates; meanwhile their nation is going down the tubes as a function of corporate criminality run amok. It’s New York State’s loss as well as those who could depend on his kind to pursure the dark, greedy forces that are hellbent on destroying this nation all for a few dollars, euro’s, shekels or yuan more.

    Carl, I am thrilled that you will be reading Dylan’s book and I agree that his words with Spitzer were very good. I am not put off with his outbursts about the level of corruption in our government. He is dead-on accurate.

    Rattigan has been an economic pro for years and I used to watch him on CNBC, my trying to understand how America got into such a level of corruption under the leadership of our own elected officials.

    It is not a new problem but I had hoped that the Internet would be the tool to expose those Greedy Bastards. A large majority of these sites are simply a place to sell Christianity. Had Reader Rant given this subject its own section of discussion, it would not have caused the fights. I know I instigated a lot of those fights but the truth of the matter is that not all American voters believe in the supernatural.
