So at least she is good for something.Even if its recreational.
I, like others on FR, was shocked by Britt Hume last night! I’ve always enjoyed him and thought him to be fair and he definitely disappointed me last night. If he was going to quote the poll #s about favorability/unfavorability it would have been nice if he had cited the poll and what day it was taken. When I heard the results he quoted and heard the exit poll results of the SC voters it made me think he was quoting an older poll (probably one taken prior to last Monday). In addition, w/o knowing who took/released the poll and who they polled (e.g., likely voters, registered voters, % of Dims,Pubs, Indies) I’m taking it w a grain of salt right now.
I’m sure the elites on both sides of the aisle & media elites will do everything they can to spout the talking points given to them to talk about how awful, mean & unelectable Newt is hoping to drive public opinion down more. Obviously, some folks will fall for it, but if Newt keeps on campaigning and debating like he has been, I think he’ll do fine. Plus, let’s face it, many folks are sick and tired of the elites in DC and the media and the Bamster and aren’t buying what they keep trying to sell us (e.g., push down our throats). We’re sick of the lies and Newt seems to be telling us the truth (refreshing!). I guess only time will tell (with all of us Tebowing through at least mid-Nov). While this is probably the most important election of our lifetimes, it’s probably going to be one of the nastiest and fraud-ridden ones as well.
I linked to Will’s discussion of ‘Romneyness’ above. Here’s another similar article from Byron York (I like him and thought this was a good article) about Romney’s not having the ability to connect with people and Newt’s ability to do so, even though Romney seems to stage ‘perfect’ events & Newt not so much. Newt listens & connects and has great answers.
Why Gingrich won — Why Romney lost
Byron York - Washington Examiner
COLUMBIA, SC — They won’t say it publicly — they don’t want to appear churlish or disrespectful on a night they took a serious beating — but it’s no exaggeration to say that even after losing the South Carolina primary to Newt Gingrich, members of Mitt Romney’s circle find it absurd — almost crazy — that the former House speaker has even a ghost of a chance of becoming the Republican Party’s presidential nominee.
Just a few days ago, many commentators were suggesting that Romney was likely to win South Carolina, and when he did, the GOP nomination would be his. Now Romney has been soundly rejected in the first primary in the South, the rock-solid base of the Republican Party. What happens next, in Florida, is unclear.
Gingrich’s success here in South Carolina shows more than just a skepticism toward establishment Republicanism. It also shows a hunger for real substance in the campaign, for a candidate who will talk to voters and give them more than phrases like “I believe in America.” Mitt Romney’s team of seasoned campaign professionals may not think Newt Gingrich has any business playing a deciding role in the race. But they better believe it, and they better take seriously what the Gingrich challenge represents — before it’s too late.

Delegate count notwithstanding (and JMHO), the BIGGEST losers in last night’s voting were the media. Including some of those who’ve packaged themselves as Conservative...
....judging by Coulter’s reaction, they’re just coming to that realization.
Pretty hard to sell anything after you’ve told your customers that you consider them your enemy.
Which is Romney's problem in a nutshell. After 2008 a great number of Americans have woken up to the fact the political establishment, of both parties, is their enemy.
Elemental liquid Mercury is pretty stable unless you heat it and form a vapor. It doesn't go around attacking other compounds and reacting with them (unlike Chlorine).
If you allow an acid to act on it, or something, then it becomes toxic.
The whole ban on mercury thermostats, switches, mirrors, thermometers etc is just another big hoax.
The highly toxic fluorescent bulb is whole different matter.
Not sure Romney can win in the south. People are missing how much people dislike Obama and the Democrat controlled news media.
That means the Democrat Media has a less favorable rating than the Congress.
Thanks! God sometimes enlightens me; If your the media (subordinate facilitator) and follow the lead, you get Republicans like Maverick McCain and Lindsey Graham to manipulate the discussion in the desired direction, then use some Democrats to isolating and demean opposing viewpoints. Those who are running the shows compile the final agenda for discussion.
Great analysis SC. Newt now on with pathetic Candy on CNN getting in line for her spanking.Newt seems to go easy on her realizing that low IQ talking heads should be given at lest a little slack.
The media suffer from groupthink. They all tend to process information and events through the same prism much the same way as doctors treat backaches according to their specialties. Surgeons want to operate, chiropractors want to twist, pull and push, while naturalists want to give you herbal tea and a massage.
This is the Democrat Media who got Obama elected. This is the Democrat Media who never asks Obama the important questions because they do not want to be blamed for an Obama defeat in November.
Those season campaign workers are often political science majors who graduated from liberal colleges where they were taught the GOP place in the political arena. Not how to think only what to think. Newt knows how to think.
Another thought I had was in Newt having to explain his Saul Alinsky comparison and how he would do that, but I’m sure when Newt says it, it’ll be like Limbaugh, the final word.
Any bump Zero gets will be because of the media, created by the media out of whole cloth. There is nothing substantial left for Zero to get a bump out of, unless he stands up and repudiates everything he and democrats have done to date, and promises to start dismantleing what dems have worked to build up to now.
and he will be difficult to defeat. You will hear that mantra until after the third or fourth recount, unless it is a total blow out, in which case, we will be angry white males clinging to our guns and bibles.
Newt has the guts to say what we are all thinking. Obama is bad for the country and the Democrat Media is corrupt.
Thanks, now that I no longer afford myself satellite local channels CNN is the only show I can watch in real time, and I probably wouldn’t bother with it if Newt wasn’t on.
Ted Olsen comes to mind. Once a good conservative, was solicitor genersl, married to Barbare who went down on 9/11, and then he married a leftie, and he now acts like a neutered tomcat.
This basically consists of injecting anhydrous ammonia at the well head and then spraying it into the air over the monoculture corn crop....millions of gallons every day throughout the growing season.
They've done far more damage to the water supply than any pipeline breach could cause.
Newt is doing it again to fat candy(sounds like a mobster). He just handled her like one would handle a school child. So quick an easy. She has to be getting volumes in her ear right now. They are desperate to get anything on Newt and so far very little.
Watched a wee bit of all the pathetic Sunday News Shows.
I had to ask forgiveness from The Lord after screaming vulgarities at Joe Scarborough on MTP. This guy has got a lot of nerve to question anybodies Conservative credentials!
Joe Scarborough sold out long ago on any kind of Conservative thinking...He is such a scumbag, I do not even know where to start?
It should have been Sarah Palin last night, but it`s not, so Newt is the best we have,but for Scarborough to be talking about who or who is not Conservative, is just outrages.
Katrina Vandernoodle got away with saying that the liberal media claim, is just a myth. Not a peep out of George Will to correct her, not surprized,Will sold out years and years ago to be the ABC token “Conservative”.
