Egotistical, bombastic embarrassment claims Newt Gingrich is... an embarrassment

For a guy who has never done anything at the national level; who has a personal cameraman following him around to capture those special "YouTube moments" where he confronts public sector union members; and who has taken troubling positions on gun control, illegal immigration, judges, global warming, and Obamacare (to name but a few), it takes real hubris to pillory Newt Gingrich.

I speak, of course, of Chris "Krispy Kreme" Christie, one of the darlings of the RINO establishment, who is doing his level best to sandbag conservatives.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Sunday dubbed Mitt Romney’s showing in South Carolina “clearly disappointing,” but quickly turned his focus to Newt Gingrich, saying he has been “an embarrassment to the party.”

Christie, a key Romney surrogate in his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, blasted Gingrich on NBC's "Meet the Press" for his ethics violation fine and losing the speakership in the House, saying that “sometimes past is prologue... Newt Gingrich has embarrassed the party over time. Whether he'll do it again in the future I don't know, but Gov. Romney never has,” Christie said on NBC's “Meet the Press.”

"I mean he was run out of the speakership by his own party, he was fined $300,000 for ethics violations. This is a guy that has had a very difficult political career at times, and has been an embarrassment to the party," Christie added.

...While Christie has pointed to Romney’s difficulties in connecting with people before, he said Sunday it’s due to Romney being a “reserved guy.” He then turned to what he deemed Gingrich’s liabilities... “Strategic adviser? That is the oldest Washington dodge in the book. That's because he didn't want to register as a lobbyist,” Christie said.

...Christie also addressed the vice presidency question once again, saying, “If I'm approached I will listen, but my inclination, I want to make it very clear, is that I want to stay governor of New Jersey."

News flash, Krispy: you ain't gonna be the VP. And, by the way, Newt Gingrich has accomplished 20 times more for the conservative movement and the Republican Party than you have.

The results of Gingrich's ethics probe are publicly available; they involve a course that Gingrich taught at Kennesaw State College while serving in Congress. The trouble revolved around the fact that the course was backed by a tax-exempt group. Gingrich taught Constitutional, conservative values, which the IRS found were “consistent with its stated exempt purposes.”

The whole thing was a political setup. And doesn't Newt's "ethics violations" seem quaint given the likes of Maxine Waters, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Diane Feinstein, and the rest of the modern miscreants of Congress who have mysteriously made millions in office?

So, Krispy, I'd advise you to keep your pie-hole shut. You're the embarrassment -- and we're not going to let you try to tear down conservatives in pursuit of a VP slot that you'll never get.

Amen!!

Krispy gets more suspicious with every passing day..
It's all about "branding"..
Most of the time Newt is too conservative to suit the squish republican party..
And Krispy is just like the jelly filled variation of his namesake..

christie has never worked for freddie mac and never been fined $300GEES by his GOP colleagues for unethical behavior.

but he has actually run a state.

all newt has run is his mouth.

when he ran the house folks as diverse as santorum and molinari said he was awful. erratic, undisciplined.

and unethical.

and he was an adulterer who at the time was lambasting bj clinton for his infidelity.

in a word: newt is a sc*mbag and rightly reviled by 60% of Americans.

fewer in SC - i'll give you that!

Wow, Reliapundit. I'd expect the shallow, let's-hope-no-one-will-dig-deeper-into-this type of rebuttal from some Internet noob, but not from a seasoned blogger like yourself. Man, that is weak tea stuff you served up.

Shayne said...

Just an aside, Gingrich lambasted Clinton for his perjury, not his affair. You're acting like a Democrat, where facts aren't neccesary when attacking an opponent.

Unreliapundit, take a hike over to Politico or some other leftist blog where they are enjoying the fact that the man who gave birth to the base of obamacare (that would be Romneycare) is close to getting the nod from Karl Rove, umm, I mean the Republican party, and stay there. You are a RINOcrat that has no conservative values. Newt is not perfect by any means but we will take him over Mitt-for-brains ANY day (that is if Santorum can't pull it off).

Who's the ugly troll?

Nice to see that Mitt can get Christie (& the ugly troll) to attack Newt on his behalf because he doesn't have the stones to do it himself (& it might muss up his hair).

That'll work real well against Obama & the entire force of the corrupt MSM during the general election, won't it? "CNN is reporting that today Governor Chris Christie released a press release calling President Obama's statements about Candidate Romney mean..."

THANK YOU for saying what a lot of us "non-Ann Coulter's" are thinking. Christie is sooo full of himself. And a Rhino to boot.

Romneypundit: just to the left of your "A" key is the Caps Lock. Give her a try - others have asked too.

Anyone who reads the comments at this site knows (near to the point of pain) that you really, really, really dig Mitt. Must you toss bombs at all Not-Mitts? I get the impression that if you can't vote for Mitt you will vote for Obama out of spite and petulance.

Am I misunderstanding your threads here?

Reliapundit said...

hi the bad.

fact:

i have posted anti-obama stuff since 2004.

that's right: 2004.

i was the very first.

i did so right after his kerry convention speech.

i never let up.

i will vote newt if he's the nominee.

i would vote for you over obama.

fact:

i supported perry at first.

even pawlenty.


would have loved it if daniels and jindal and demint had run.

mitt is just the best of what's left.

clearly; it ain't even close.

fact:

i LOVE sarah palin's values, but if she were to run for the nomination i would oppose her: her negatives are WAY too high; she would lose.

we must follow buckley's edict:

nominate the most conservative person who can win the general.

AND THEN THERE'S THIS:

ALL CAPS IN DEFENSE OF LIBERTY IS NO VICE!
