Damnit, Newt. You were out the door and then Sheldon Adelson decided to back you before South Carolina. So, lets not act like you werent already on the way out.

Plus, thats with the GOP primary, not the general election.

You lost because you're an unlikable douchebag who looks like a 70 year old Cabbage Patch Doll.

This.

Jesus farking Christ why are people still talking to Newt?

No, you lost because every time you open your mouth stupid sh*t like that comes out

"I think in the end Bain Capital doesn't work as an issue, in fact, it reminds people this is a guy who knows how to create jobs," he said. "If you have a really bad economy, who would you rather have? An academic like Obama or somebody who has actually been in business?

I think Gingrich is mad as f*cking hell that Obama is using his comments in attack ads against Romney. i'm sure he's also catching hell from his fellow Republicans for being seen as the guy who's helping out Obama by giving him so much attack footage to use in the campaign against the GOP.

So now Newt is trying some damage control.

To be fair, that's not Newt's fault. That's what politicians do. They claw each other's eyes out during the primaries and when someone gets nominated, they're all asshole buddies again.

Why do I get the feeling that Newton isn't going to cry himself to sleep should Romney lose in November?

Time to block websites which automatically start playing video and worse, have auto play ads.

oh I'm not blaming anyone...i'm just saying that I think Gingrich is insanely pissed off that Obama is 'stealing' his quotes and using the footage against Romney.

Willard isn't likely to toss anything Newt's way, so yeah, Newt won't lose any sleep over this.

Riche: Jesus farking Christ why are people still talking to Newt?


Some days, reporters need to fill some column inches with something that looks like commentary (without reading glasses) from someone who looks like a pundit (with enough LSD).

And Newt will still answer the phone and froth on command.
 
2012-08-13 09:36:29 AM  
No, you lost because Saul Alinsky kicked your big fat ass, you big fat ass fark.
 
2012-08-13 09:40:31 AM  
one of the reasons..

You already played that card in the Palin thread. Why you insist on white knighting the biggest losers of the GOP is baffling.

this.

but didn't he also lose because Mitt's campaign didn't just take it on the chin and actually fired back with hundreds of thousand in ads reminding everyone of Newt's record and that the guy is an unlikable douchebag

Because the news cycle is 24/7 365 and there are only so many cat videos you can air.

Newt a few months ago - "I'm gonna be the republican candidate for president".

And you still have a lot of cons that believe this idiot is really smart.
 
2012-08-13 11:13:13 AM  
I'm seeing Greg Marmarlard steering Newt back over to the loser corner, and re-introducing Juglish, Mohammed etc.

"Great! Then you'll have plenty to talk about!"

Weaver95: oh I'm not blaming anyone...i'm just saying that I think Gingrich is insanely pissed off that Obama is 'stealing' his quotes and using the footage against Romney.


I think it's telling that the two greatest sources for Anti-Romney quotes are first from his fellow Republicans, and second from Romney himself when he inevitably disagreed with whatever he's saying now in the past.

Wait a second...

What was Newt's job before he was elected to Congress in 1978? Surely he was a captain of private industry, and not some pointy-headed nerd slaving away in academia?

You stupid libtards are so hung up on your precious reality. Don't you know there is a republican alternative universe where newt wins the election every single day ?
 
2012-08-13 11:17:16 AM  
Newt, you lost because you were not meant to win. Your entire function in the primaries was to split the far right religious vote from Santorum so Romney could be the nominee. You did your job well, and you know it.
 
2012-08-13 11:17:19 AM  
I think the GOP is realizing that going negative in the primaries doesn't help you, as the opposition just records it and uses the quotes against you.

Obama, like peperage farm, remembers. And Obama isn't afraid to use what you said against you.

I think it was the moon base thing.

/personally I liked the idea
 
2012-08-13 11:21:16 AM  
Newt is a fat adulterous crybaby who panders to the lowest and most sociopathic urges of the everyday man.

The way SC cheered him at the primary debates convinced me I never want to visit that place again

/well, maybe for Myrtle Beach
//trashy beach towns with putt-putt and the same beach shop every block have a nostalgic quality for me
 
2012-08-13 11:22:56 AM  
No, you lost because you are a fat, arrogant, hypocritical, lying scumbag who only got a brief moment in the spotlight because Republicans hate Romney so much they temporarily ignored all the above facts about you. Then you opened your mouth and people remembered that you were a disgraced corrupt politician. The fact that you made some accurate points about Romney has nothing to do with this.

Also, do the Republicans think team Obama is so retarded that they are going to listen to Newt Gingrich about how to "win" a Presidential campaign? Especially with such a sweet, sweet, sweet line of attack?
 
2012-08-13 11:24:19 AM  
"I think it did not help us, I mean, to be candid, maybe this is because it was in a Republican Party with conservatives, but I think it clearly did not help us. I think people thought first of all, it sounded like Obama; it sounded like a left-wing critique of all free enterprise," Gingrich said in a video interview at The Daily Caller's headquarters in Washington.

Gingrich continued, "I mean, in hindsight, it looked like I was whining as much as my first wife. And I didn't even have cancer. I think we could all learn a lesson from my mistake and vote Republican."

If that was a plan I'm kind of impressed.... Don't think they are that clever...

Newt, you already sold a ton of books. Give up this stupid ruse for a while. Enjoy shaving without being ashamed of what you see in the mirror. Get laid or something. But whatever you do, stop pissing on my leg and telling me it's raining.

You don't get it. This is his new life. News agencies call him up, he spouts off whatever is on his mind at the time, and his name gets back in the media. That drives more book sales. He makes money with practically no effort.

So, now Obama is part of the academia? I could have sworn last week he only got into Harvard because of affirmative action.

They really haven't caught up with the idea of audio recordings, much less video. Nor do they realize that the search engines cache their websites.

Yes. Making fun of the right-wingers on Fark (who very often confuse the words "laugh" and "hate") is white-knighting for the GOP.

Something tells me you don't solve problems for a living. Just a guess.

FTA:
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told The Daily Caller that his presidential campaign's attacks on GOP nominee Mitt Romney's time at Bain Capital during the Republican primary did not help him in the race and will not work for President Barack Obama either.

"Thanks for the advice, you Grima Wormtongue fat sack of congealing pus. I sure will stop my assault on Romney's right flank now. It sure is a bummer having to insert earplugs into my ears to block out the screams whenever my artillery opens up on it."

I love how Newt asked if it was better to have an academic in the White House or someone who has run a business, essentially saying being an academic is a bad thing.

The GOP: SMRT PEEPLE R STOOPID.

That's been their consistent position for 32 years, now. And after 32 years of destroying education in America, it's become reality.
