I've actually witnessed, heard actually, this happening. If you listen to conservative radio at all, they are pooping in their pants about Newt. O.M.G! I find it fascinating because as another conservative talk show host said, "this is going to come back to haunt us. Don't you think that people are going to remember later on that a few months ago, Ann Coulter said that if you nominate Romney, Pres. Obama WINS?! Now she's hating on (my words. republican commentators never use such blatant ebonics) Newt? Do you think the electorate is stupid?!" Umm hmmm…yes, yes they do. The Clinton machine tried to do some of this to Obama and people got real pissed…and he's in the White House now.
The republican establishment is scared out of their MINDS that this guy is actually going to make it through and so he must be stopped, by any means necessary. Have you all noticed the amount of pics on Facebook showing Newt as a big baby?! A BIG FAT UGLY BABY?! Not even an attractive one. If I was a conspiracy theorist, I would say that the GOP "elite" are making sure these things are out there, or at the very least, forwarding them to the "right" people.
Here's what a republican "official" said:
“It could happen, and it would be a disaster,” said the conservative, who spoke on condition of anonymity to protect private conversations. “All of us who were around and saw how he operated as speaker — there’s no one who’s not appalled by the prospect of what could happen. He thinks he embodies conservatism and if he wakes up one day and has a grandiose thought, he is going to expect all of us to fall in line behind him.
“There’s just so much risk on so many levels,” the official continued. “Everyone’s thinking, ‘It could really happen.’ He could win the presidency if there’s a way to win with 45 percent — a second recession or a third-party candidate. The immediate worry is him winning the nomination and losing the election, tanking candidates down-ballot. In a worst-case scenario, you could see unified Democratic governance, and we’d be back where we were in ’09 and ’10. It’s insane.”
A super pac is also also saying this:
“Reagan rejected Newt’s ideas. On leadership and character, Gingrich is no Ronald Reagan...”
To a certain extent, this would be actually funny to observe, if the stakes weren't so deadly serious. If the republican establishment is not careful, people are going to vote for Gingrich just to screw with them. As the article states, republicans in Delaware chose an actual disavowed Witch - - the kind with a broom y'all -- to be their nominee for the SENATE, not even the House. What do you think they'll do with a candidate they don't really like (Romney) when Ole Speakah' Gingrich continues to surge? A surge which, by the way, is already starting to wane since the last debate disallowed the outbursts by the crowd that Newt has been feeding upon; another sly Elite Republican tactic to change the race! Oh I could watch this stuff all day….(whistling while skipping)
