By The Right Scoop


If you think Romney is still some nice Republican just trying to win an election, then watch this ad as he tries to smear Newt over known false ethics charges that the Democrats used against him in the 90s. In fact we’ve already shown here that Newt was exonerated by the IRS. We even linked the great piece by Byron York detailing the truth about the ethics charges.

But Romney insists on trying to destroy Newt Gingrich over the same false, trumped-up ethics charges just like Democrats did. He’s acting exactly like a power hungry Democrat who is willing to say anything to get elected:

Also, it’s worth noting that NBC is calling for this ad to be taken down because Brokaw doesn’t approve of his likeness being used this way. So watch it while you can. UPDATE: I’ve replaced it with a mirror version to keep it from disappearing later.

    You know, for a Morman, Mitt certainly doesn’t have any problem with lying.

    • Linky1

      And he will disavow any knowledge, blaming it on his Super PAC.

      • http://poorrichardsnews.com Poor Richard

        He can’t blame the Super PAC for an ad his own campaign put out. There’s a reason it says “I’m Mitt Romney and I approve this message” at the end.

          He was Mitt Romney and he approved the message he denied having any knowledge of during the last debate, too.

            I would LOVE for him to do that again with this ad. Just throw another lie on top of it! That’ll get you some votes with the American people! Does he think we’re that stupid?

              Sadly, most Americans ARE that stupid. Until Americans wake the hell up and start paying attention… we’ll keep getting dipwad candidates like McCain, Kerry, Romney, etc. and monsterous presidents like dear ruler. Our job is to help them wake up.

                I despise Michael Moore and he once said that Americans are stupid, and unfortunately he is right. They listen to the lamestream media like this trashy ad.

                The candidates have to focus on Obama as a failure and stop attacking each other. Many people have said this but they just don’t listen. They are ruining any chance of replacing Obama with a republican and ruining the image of the republican party. They are like a bunch of school kids in a p—-ng contest.

                I am a Gingrich supporter, and even he is responsible for attacking the others especially Romney. I will vote for any republican nominated just to rid this country of the Obama regime. He has created such misery with his failed policies. I weep for the future of America because of Obama.

                OK, come on now. Who said Romney had anything to do with him getting fined. Did you read that anywhere here or anywhere else? No, you didn’t so no need to start trumping up charges right? Its standard form for the left to accuse conservatives of things that they themselves do. So don’t begin with those tactics.

                Romney is smearing a very very good conservative. He is smearing him so that he will walk to the nomination when he most certainly does not deserve to do so.

                You want to know what an ethics violation looks like? Go look at the new expose of the company that Romney ran Damon Corp. They were fined $160m for over billing/fraudulently billing medicare for tests that were unnecessary. Now thats a major ethics. If you can still hold you nose and vote for Romney and vote for him after seeing that expose then please do not have the gall to attack Newt for defending himself against trumped up charges for which he was later aquitted in full.

            Guy there is more subtlety to Gingrich’s response than you seem to understand. Go back and review the video. He settled prematurely to be done with the charges then was fully exonerated. Settling of these type of bogus suits are less costly than fighting them.

              You’re right. Dems in a House did exactly to him what they did to Sarah Palin in Alaska: overload with ethics charges until it becomes too difficult to do your job anymore. Both Newt and Palin cut their losses and got out while they could.

      He is branding himself as the hate icon on the conservative wing of this party. If he wins the nomination he wont win the presidency because we will simply boycott him.

      In all honesty I was an anyone but Obama person just before the Iowa campaign. Now its hard to imagine myself saying it but I will not be turning out for this guy if he ends up being forced down our throats. He is without a doubt the lowest of the low and that is up against some pretty stiff competition. A gutter dwelling sewer rat.

            Correct me if I am wrong. The powers to be did not want or back Pres. Reagan at the time. Cong. Newt did most of Pres. Reagans bidding in the House by pushing his agenda. The Powers that be went after Newt along with the Democrats. Conservatism is not what they wanted. It was and still is power by Central Government over the States and there inhabitants. I believe that this is the main struggle in this election and the Tea Party is the focus of that fight. It is Establishment Vs. the Paople, Look at the passage of Legislation that the over whelming majority of people were against.I will vote for the candidate that will fight the Big Goveernment and get this Country back on it’s feet. Only two candidates have talked about and shown in the past that they regonize this fight and are willing to take it on. You have to decide for yourself which way you see it. Hope I am right when I vote.

        He submitted false information during the course of the investigation.

        For the record, I haven’t ever been sued at all–and I hold nothing against him for having been sued–the thing that Mitt has been criticizing him for isn’t that he was sued but that in the process of the investigation, he submitted false information and was found to have violated ethics rules–a finding that was made by the House of Representatives in an overwhelming vote.

          The false information was one paper, out of three submitted, that had misstatements in it. That Lawyer was let go and Newt took the responsibility (get Pelosi to do that!). All about a college course that the IRS concluded was not in violation.

      Jaynie59: Spot on. Romney (and his GOP Beltway alliance) is more concerned about “moderates and Democrats” than the conservative base – which is why he relentlessly trashes and smears one of the more conservative candidates like Newt, but runs the rest of his campaign “in the center” by making sure he stills calls Obama “a nice guy who’s just over his head”. Meanwhile, it’s Newt that is the so-called faux conservative or as one Romney-supporting GOP pundit incredibly claimed, the “Alinsky Republican”. If Romney wins, you can bet that is the last time we will ever hear about Alinsky, ’cause the name will be verboten in the general.

I think the PUMAS filled in some of the gap created by the Republican base that stayed at home. But there weren’t enough PUMAS to drag McCain’s sorry ass across the finish line.

        If Romney “wins” the nomination the same thing is going to happen. But I predict Mitt will choose a loser like Chris Christie for VP and his losing margin will be worse than McCain’s was.

          You think he’ll chose Crispy Cream? I think he’ll go with Rubio to assure him FL, except he doesn’t realize obama can win without FL.

          I’ve done 3 electoral scenarios and obama wins all three in a worst case.

        Thank you. That’s a very important vote. I would cherish it.

        I will be happy when you tell me that each and every one of your neighbors got off their duffs (with you chasing them to the polls weilding a rolling pin) and voted their hearts.

        Doesn’t matter to me who they vote for, as long as they took the time to pull the lever. Go get ‘em.

    So the fact that Newt was cleared of all but one of these charges doesn’t matter.

    As usual Palin is right. The GOP elites are simply the flip side of the same coin as the Democrat leftists.

    The GOP must be conquered or die otherwise the election is meaningless.

    Romney will NEVER get my vote.

    Romney should have known better. Using a known bias liberal media hack in destroying a republican opponent will only succeed in making conservatives’ blood boil. He’s defeating his purpose by doing that, it just showed that Romney is out of sync and out of loop with how real conservatives feel. This guy is living in liberal occupied planet. Amazing that his many well paid strategists and advisers did not advise him against this. It could only mean, that like him, those who strategize and advise him are also deep in liberal doo-doo.

    I think Sarah Palin needs to come out swinging on this add, and take it down along with Romney. The only way this will be carried by the main stream media is if someone like Sarah comes out swinging. It will go viral on the internet and on the lame stream media.
    Romney is Obama. They are the same people. He is a fraud. He is a mean, ruthless individual that will do anything to get elected. I think he truly hates Newt. Power hungry people hate when someone else gets to play in their playground.

    I also think Santorum needs to re-evaluate if he is really ready for the presidency and can really win, or just be a spoiler for Newt who has the stuffing’s for the job.

    I implore anyone who knows Santorum to reason with him and show him how his self serving interest could take down this country. Rick please, you have won your battle already, now go with the team that can make our country great again. You will be rewarded greatly in the future for your good decision. You are a remarkable leader and we need you, however, the odds of you winning the national election are slim to none at this time.

    Please someone petition these two people.

    How did Romney lie? He showed a news clip. That’s it. Republicans voted overwhelmingly to admonish Gingrich. This all happened, this is all history.

    Sad to see ‘historian’ Newt trying to rewrite it.

      You know the truth and you know that you are purposely perpetuating a lie.

      Every one of Romney’s supporters are doing what you are doing all over the blogosphere. Do you get paid or points in your religion for doing this?

      Well, it won’t work.

      Romney has been busted on many counts.

      Romney was caught lying twice Thursday night – on the air – in the last Florida debate.

      It is beginning to look like he has a serious pathological condition.

      Tell your boss to go home and live with his jillions…enjoy his grandchildren.

      Or else come clean, confess and apologize.

    The problems with this are it is false and misleading and Romney approved it. If Brokaw who is a lib wants out of it that says something.

    Mittens is going to be in Naples Florida tomorrow, but there will be a bunch of folks there who will be waving Santorum signs. I know not many folks like Rick, but I gotta love the spunk of his followers- mittens is a low life jerk.

  • Anonymous

    It amazes me to hear that Mitt is supposedly doing very well in Florida, despite his smarmy politics. He even has the nerve to describe Rick Santorum’s forceful description of RomneyCare as “angry”. Challenges and debates over issues are fair game, as are challenges to records (such as voting and policy records) and even some personal challenges as we work to decide who will best serve and represent America. But deliberate misrepresentation, smear campaigns and dirty politics should be left to the Left, where it can be pointed to as more evidence of their lack of a cogent argument.

    As my mother says, “shamey shamey shamey”.

    The Beckster and Romulus both clam to to walk the high ground of truth and when it comes down to it both are involved in a false religion that mocks Christianity and are trying to infiltrate the True Church of Yeshua and contaminate it with their lies…they say “we are all Christians” Really!!!!!…those who would destroy a thing must start inside a thing…thus Christianity is being destroyed from with in…don’t believe me….just look around….the U.S.A. and look at the violence…sexual abuse of women and children…young people destroying themselves with drugs- sexually transmitted diseases and on and on…and Romulus just continues his lies and so does the beckster……

    Wow what a misleading story. You talk about Mitt smearing Newt, what about Newt lying about Romney. He lied so much he was called on it by Rubio. Huckabee dosen’t approve that Newt is using his old add. Newt is no choir boy. If this iste is just a anti Romeny site, just say it. I’d like to know, so I don’t waste my time.

    Romney has pointed out the differences between the too. Talk about someone attacking someone like a Democrat. Newt’s attacking capitalisim. Newt’s playing the class warfare game!

    Once again be fair, or just point out this is a Anti Romney site.. Thanks

    • Anonymous

      Romney started this in Iowa. He looks like a desperate man.

    • K-Bob

      This site is quite open about the process of choosing the most conservative candidate. Romney has never been at the top of that list here, or pretty much any conservative-oriented site you want to go to.

      Republican-oriented sites like Red State have been all about winning for the Republican party. That’s an entirely different concept. Many at those places are supporting Romney. That doesn’t magically confer “conservative” status to their candidate. He’s the least conservative of the four (even though Ron Paul isn’t an actual conservative, he’s still to the right of Romney on most issues).

      Your newness here means you’ve missed a lot of posts covering the topics you mention. Why not take the time to catch up before assuming they are being ignored?

    • Anonymous

      It’s not an anti-Romney site, as such. If you have a valid argument, I know that everyone is welcome to present it – provided they are willing to back it up, debate and discuss it.

      To answer your question: I know that over the last several months Scoop has become very annoyed and disillusioned by Romney, for any number of reasons. He didn’t start out that way, but he’s pretty much said that he’s had it with him by now.

      There are a lot of Santorum fans here too, though most of the Paul fans get shot down here because they have a history of ranting, namecalling, and spamming polls when they come to this site.

      In regards to Newt’s attack on Bain, I do not think he was attacking capitalism, but attacking Romney for pillaging and burning companies to the ground. I’m not taking a side on that argument, but I think that was his point.

      Full disclosure: I am in Newt’s camp, but I would rather have a better horse in this race. I don’t like Romney because I think he’s a slick politician who will say anything to get elected.

    Romney becomes more detestable by the day. He will lose Florida.

      Oh, but that all depends on if Floridians buy that attack ad or not. Personally, I wish the candidates could run on their own merits. Some degree of attacking has its merits, insomuch as candidates need vetting so that the voters know what they are getting. I am personally astonished that he’d take NBC and run their words verbatim.

      Newt said Romney’s not that slick and the voters aren’t that stupid…but I think he meant “I sure as heck hope you aren’t. I don’t think you are. Don’t let me down!”

  • Anonymous

    Romney the establishment LOL. Newt is the definition of Establishment. Mr Washington, He took money from Freddie and Fannie, sat on the couch with Pelosi. He did say some bad things about Reagan. Read Rich Lowery’s piece, he broke it all down. Showing the whole story, not just bits and pieces. Newt attacked Romeny from the left, Rush and Levin called Newt on it. Rubio called Newt on his lies. Newt wanted to lie about Romney on the stump, but Wolf made him answere the question. Then when Newt wanted to back off, Mitt held him accountable.

    We already had one cheating President, don’t want another one!!

      . How do you feel about forcing people to buy healthcare in your state? Like MA. Non profits like Blue Cross and Blue Shield are going broke there because of Romney’s attacks on freedom.
      How about using taxpayer money to buy cars with AAA memberships for welfare recipients. Even allowing them to keep them if you went off of welfare? So the taxpayer had to buy their own car, and a car for someone Romney chose to give it to?

      Remember too, that two of his Romneycare advisors advised Zero on Zerocare.
      Mitt Romney also worked with John Holdren who now works for Zero’s EPA. He wants to put something in the water to sterilize people.

    I think they should roll all the slimy ads of Romney together into one and end it with the clip of Mitt, himself, from the last debate, declaring, ‘That’s despicable’. That would pretty much sum it up. Who better but the expert would know?

    Romney said, during the Iowa Caucus, that he had raised a lot of money and he was going to use it to get elected…no matter what it takes.

    Look! He made a statement/promise and he’s delivering on it.

    This is who Romney — the candidate — is. Do you believe that Romney — the President — will be any different?

    Does anyone reading this believe that this candidate is worthy of your respect?

    Do you think he respects you?

    Remember this is the candidate who said in the first two debates that he would give wavers to ObamaCare to every citizen…not repeal it but waver it and then fix it. That is the position of a Moderate at best. But, he has since moved to the right on that issue. He now says he will repeal ObamaCare.

    What position do you think will he take in the General Election?

    Mitt Romney is a VTD (voter transmitted disease) , the GOP needs a good scrub down and antibiotics administered immediately. This is what listening to moderates and their electability arguments gets us. An unscrupulous, self serving egotistical jack ass committed to his own sense of entitlement.
