Well, looks like Big Government “progessive” Newt Gingrich has stepped in it again folks. As his fellow traveler Barack Obama would say, he’s “acted stupidly,” with his latest freaky attack on Mitt Romney.
You see, a bit back George Soros made a comment that there was little difference between Mitt and Obama. Now Soros isn’t stupid. He knew exactly how that would play with Conservatives.
Folks like Rush Limbaugh constantly say you can tell who the left fears the most by who the attack the hardest. According to a study done by the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University, Mitt Romney is getting by far the most negative press of the GOP field. Unless there is some sort of unwritten rule that exempts Mitt, or, God forbid, Rush is wrong, it sure looks like the left is more concerned about Mitt than anyone else. You certainly do not see the left attacking Newt Gingrich.
The problem with Newt’s attack is while Soros was running his head to Reuters, it’s hard to find any direct ties between Soros and Romney, though Newt sure would like you to think there is.
There actually IS a direct link between George Soros and Newt Gingrich though.
We all remember this betrayal of Conservatism and the American people by Newt. [one of many]
As you know, this betrayal came at the very time Conservatives were in the battle of their life to save America from the communists in the “green” movement, like Van Jones, who wanted to take away all of your Liberty and Freedom, as well as lift all of the cash out of your wallet, in the name of “saving the planet”. [from a hoax]
And who paid for this ad featuring Nancy and Newt cuddled up together? Why George Soros, of course!
In a press release from the Romney campaign we get this response:
“It is interesting to see the latest attack from Speaker Gingrich and his disintegrating campaign. Unlike Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney never sat next to Nancy Pelosi in an ad funded by George Soros on behalf of Al Gore’s global warming initiative. As recently as 2008, the Soros agenda had no better friend than Newt Gingrich. Nice try, Mr. Speaker.” –Ryan Williams, Romney Campaign Spokesman
Sitting On A Loveseat Together In 2008, Speakers Gingrich And Pelosi Called On America To “Take Action To Address Climate Change.”
PELOSI: “Hi! I’m Nancy Pelosi, life-long Democrat and Speaker of the House.”
GINGRICH: “And I’m Newt Gingrich, life-long Republican, and I used to be Speaker.”
PELOSI: “We don’t always see eye to eye, do we Newt?”
GINGRICH: “No, but we do agree: our country must take action to address climate change.”
PELOSI: “We need cleaner forms of energy, and we need them fast.”
GINGRICH: “If enough of us demand action from our leaders, we can spark the innovation we need.”
PELOSI: “Go to WeCanSolveIt.org. Together, we can do this.”

Newt And Nancy’s TV Ad Was Launched By Al Gore’s Alliance For Climate Protection. “Former Vice President Al Gore launched a three year, multimillion-dollar advocacy campaign Monday calling for the U.S. to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. The Alliance for Climate Protection’s campaign, dubbed ‘We,’ will … educate the public about global warming and urge solutions from elected officials. … Some advertisements will feature bipartisan pairs, such as … Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with former GOP Speaker Newt Gingrich…”
(“Gore Campaign Promotes Environmental Change,” The Associated Press, 4/1/08)
Who Gave The Alliance For Climate Protection $5 Million In 2008? George Soros, Of Course. George Soros’ Open Society Institute gave the Alliance for Climate Protection $5 million in 2008. (Open Society Institute, 2008 IRS Form 990, p. 123 [PDF])
What’s that old saying about glass houses? A lot of Conservatives would rather Mitt Romney not be the front runner in this race. I consider myself among them, but Newt Gingrich is such a hypocrite, his attacks must be answered.
Newt has managed to fool a significant number of people into thinking he’s a [snort] “conservative” and a lot of people think Mitt is somehow as progressive as Obama. The sad fact is, on Romney’s worst day, he’s more Conservative than Newt on his best. Now that ain’t sayin’ much, for sure, but it is what it is.
While Romney was governor of arguably the most backwards, socialist state in the country, he hasn’t spent his entire career standing with the socialists and helping them advance their agenda the way Newt has. Newt talks the talk, but that’s as far as it goes. Not a Conservative bone in his body. Newt’s default setting is Big Government “progressive.”
The reason why Newt’s campaign is in a downward spiral is he is not for real. He’s, in reality, who everyone tries to make Romney out to be. His attacks on Romney ring hollow because whatever he accuses Mitt of, he’s actually done worse. [or wants to do worse]
Health care mandates? Romney thinks their OK for a state. [they aren’t] Newt thinks they are OK for the entire nation [they absolutely aren’t] and has said so consistently for 20 years.
Newt’s latest ad calls Romney a “gun grabber” when, in fact, the NRA praised Romney’s reforms to Massachusetts’ gun laws as a “a breath of fresh air.”
It was Newt Gingrich and his couch buddy Nancy Pelosi who teamed up, while Newt was Speaker, to pass some of the most anti-Second Amendment, anti-American gun laws in our nation‘s history. And he did it after promising the American people there would be NO such gun legislation allowed on his watch. In other words, he lied.
Add in the fact that Newt wants amnesty for illegals, and is a true believer of the global warming hoax, and will most certainly want some sort of cap and tax laws [he’s pushed them before] and you start to understand that it’s Newt who is the closest to Obama, not Mitt.
Now I’m not saying Mitt is the best answer, but one thing’s for sure, Newt Gingrich is most certainly not.
