Newt Gingrich, who, according to Newt Gingrich, is a possible presidential candidate in 2012, continues to do his best to shake off any remaining conservative support, if there was any left after this ad.

Gingrich says Republicans would be wise at this point to work with Nancy Pelosi. Hey, it’s a boxing technique: When you’ve got your opponents on the ropes, stop punching and step to the middle of the ring so they can catch their breath. Just kidding, it’s not a boxing technique — at least not one that’s used by anybody who has ever won a fight.

Somehow though Newt thinks it would work in politics though, even though politics is more of a blood-sport than boxing. Call this “Newt Gingrich’s Rope-a-Dope” — and near as I can tell, Newt wants Republicans to play the part of the dope:

“If you are a House member in the [GOP] caucus, I suspect we are about to have a huge argument. We could get clever and work with her…And I think people should work with her… But at that point it becomes a huge problem because nobody trusts her, they distrust her ideology and distrust her because she has run over them so hard…

Republicans should work with her even though nobody trusts her, vehemently disagree with her ideology and the GOP is just a few steps away from securing the complete defeat of the Obamacare boondoggle? Makes sense to me.

Newt’s chances of the GOP nomination would go a lot smoother in early 2012 if he’d stop making campaign ads for his primary opponents.

    When an insane donkey has attacked and tried to kill you,why would you do anything but destroy it?

    Gingrich is past due.

    Yeah, that's what got McCain a beating back in Nov. Do NOT work with them. Dominate them THIS Nov. Then, just laugh when they try to work with us. Let them claim the Right is evil for shutting them out.

    This thread pretty much sums up why the world htes the right wing loons. You are despised pretty much universally. You are not pro America, or patirotic, or representative of the founding fathers. You are a self interested hate group. Period.

    What was the last thing the Republican Party got right? In terms of policy?

  6. Rick on January 25th, 2010 4:03 pm

    You have a point Nick.
    Bush and the GOP worked with the Dems on the Education Bill,Illegal Citizenship,Prescription Drugs,Tarp and Stimulus. All scams and money pits.

    As pointed out before, the Wars could have been defunded(ended)by Liberals and Dems ANYTIME since 2007 and even prior to that.
    You don’t say why you think Tarp,Stimulus and Trojan Horse Healthcare are such great ideas.

    It is my opinion the Founding Fathers believed in:
    1)Limited Govt to the point of stating SPECIFICALLY the Govts powers.
    2)Limited taxation and not without representation!
    3)Private ownership of property was the cornerstone of their society.

    So I get it straight Rick, Iraq is the Dems fault because they didn't defund it after teh 2007 election? That is really a good one.

    You know nothing of what the founding fathers believed. You use grade school text book concepts to defend your limited and failed ideology. Not to mention you fail to draw any connection from your 3 listed points to why health care should not be reformed.

    Given the amount of screaming and howling Dems did for political gain at the expense of their country,they should have put up or shut on Iraq.They had the same info as Bush/Cheney.

    With the taxpayers already paying about 45% of healthcare(medicare/aid),true “reform” would get them OUT.My state took over Medicaid for something called Tenncare.Within a few years cost exploded from 13% of the entire state budget to 37%.
    Since you won’t share what you think the founding fathers believed or what you like about the aforementioned bi-partisan programs,I guess it will be your secret.

    "Given the amount of screaming and howling Dems did for political gain at the expense of their country,they should have put up or shut on Iraq."

    Please provide actual info on harm done by democratic or liberal opposition to Bush's agenda? Never did any liberal or democrat come close to the level of irrational vitriol spewed by the right wing.

    From the outset, the right has vowed to make Obama fail at any cost. ANY COST. Even the well being of fellow countrymen.

    What principle of the founding fathers would you like to discuss Rick? and in what context? You werent so concerned about them when Bush and Co. violated habeous corpus, or skipped the courts and ordered illegal wire tapping? Why suddenly so patriotic?

  10. Rick on January 26th, 2010 5:39 pm

    Kerry,Murtha,abuGrabby,Plame/Wilson….and the beat goes on.

    I’ve pointed out before that Dem/Libs could have easily stopped the Patriot Act and possibly Homeland Security.

    Founding Fathers? I told you what I think they believed. They codified it in the Constitution in an attempt to save us from the tyranny of Kings.

    Talk about why you think the govt should confiscate our firearms or decide who lives or dies in a Healthscare Plan,if you wish. Who owns your body?(nothin’ personal,but I don’t want
