Ever since his big loss in South Carolina, Willard "Mittens" Romney has gone back to negative campaigning.
He has used the far-Left talking points of David Bonior and Nancy Pelosi about the trumped up ethics charged against Newt Gingrich (of which he was exonorated).
Just today, he and his surrogates have poured on more mud than the movie Meteor, using doctored CSPAN footage against Newt to make him sound anti-Reagan, and is trying to portray him as "unstable." All while his acolytes in the Romney Lapdog Media like Matt Drudge, National Review, "Viagra Bob" Dole,
... Charles Krauthammer (who worked for Mondale in 1984), and the Ditzy Chicks (Ann Coulter, S.E. Cupp, Jennifer Rubin) do his dirty work for him in the alleged "conservative" media.
Mitt Romney, like Richard Millhous Obama or any other liberal Democrat, is using the Politics of Personal Destruction against Newt Gingrich because Romney cannot run on his record as a Northeastern, liberal elitist Republican who lost more elections than he's won and whose big policy accomplishment was the basis for the job killer known as ObamaCare.
And Romney wants to tell us who the real Reagnite is? It sure wasn't him.
When Newt Gingrich laid the groundwork to take back the House, where was Willard Romney, the liberal Northeastern Republican?
Romney claimed he wasn't a bombthrower, but he sure is acting like one. If anything else, Romney is an Alinskyite, just like his daddy praised Obama's radical inspiration, Saul Alinsky. Romney is more in line with Alinsky and Obama than Reagan real conservatism.
In a statement printed in Newsmax, Michael Reagan, the sole surviving real Reagan son, said:
“I am deeply disturbed that supporters of Mitt Romney are claiming that Newt Gingrich is not a true Reaganite and are even claiming that Newt was a strong critic of my father.
“Recently I endorsed Newt Gingrich for president because I believe that Newt is the only Republican candidate who has both consistently backed the conservative policies that my father championed and the only Republican that will continue to implement his vision.
“It surprises me that Mitt Romney and his supporters would raise this issue — when Mitt by his own admission voted for Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale who opposed my father, and later supported liberal Democrat Paul Tsongas for president.
“As governor of Massachusetts, Romney’s achievement was the most socialistic healthcare plan in the nation up until that time.
“Say what you want about Newt Gingrich but when he was Speaker of the House he surrounded himself with Reagan conservatives and implemented a Ronald Reagan program of low taxes and restrained federal spending.
“Newt’s conservative program created a huge economic boom and balanced the budget for the first time in more than a generation.”
Mike Reagan concluded: “I would take Newt Gingrich’s record any day over Mitt Romney’s.”
It will be interesting to see how this plays out the debate tonight. But Newt needs to stop this and smack Mitt down. And any "conservative" who still attacks Newt while deluding that Mitt Romney is the most conservative candidate, I no longer have any use for you!
Via the Right Scoop, is the beginning of Mark Levin's radio show tonight. Levin was in the Reagan Administration and, admittedly, Newt is not his first choice, but went for the juglar against the attacks on Gingrich. You must listen to the link.
