By The Right Scoop


So let me get this straight. Money bags Mittens runs a dishonest campaign attacking Newt with bald faced lies, but then when Newt responds in kind with the Kosher ad (which is a lie as well), all of sudden Romney is indignant about it, remaking that Newt will say anything to win.

Ugh. I think I need to borrow Michelle Malkin’s noseplugs.

    Well, he DID veto it. The fact that his veto was overridden doesn’t change his intentions… I’d say Newt’s campaign staff just didn’t do all their research, saw the veto, and just leaped to conclusions. MUCH cleaner than what Romney did to Newt, charging him with Ethics Violations which have CLEARLY been expunged from Newt’s record.

    • http://twitter.com/BecksInsanity Guy Who Talks Polytx

      Newt slammed Romney for vetoing a costly kosher kitchen and then even called him a Nazi in a robo call. Newt is running a negative campaign. If Newt is mad that Romney called him on getting fined $300,000 for ethics violations or for taking bribes from Fannie Mae, he shouldn’t have taken bribes from Fannie Mae. That’s his fault.

        where do u get ur facts, the call did not call Romney a nazi, it scolded him for depriving holocaust survivors of kosher food. just b/c the telerecording was a lie, doesnt give u an excuse 4 adding ur own, i also thought we’ve already proved u false on the ethics, and on what planet does consulting=bribes? especially since he told gop congressmen not to give Fannie anymore money? u mislead almost as much as romney, no wonder u like him

          Consulting=bribes…

          I don’t think the ‘consulting work’ was a bribe. But I also don’t think that “consulting” is a truthful label.

          Honestly, why do you think the head lobbyist of Freddie Mac hired Newt and Newt’s firm, where Newt has no previous private sector experience, at least in the last 30+ years, and has never ran his own business before becoming a ‘consultant’, and cause that head lobbyist to pay Newt and his firm 1.6 million dollars?

          Seriously… what was Newt ‘consulting’ on? And why him? It surely couldn’t be the fact that he was a former speaker, or that Newt has huge support for GSE’s? If Newt’s firm was not about lobbying or ‘influence’ or politics, then why did he start a consulting firm in Washington DC?

          When you add the allegations of multiple senators and representatives claiming that Newt lobbied them over Freddie and Fanny… how can you NOT raise your eyebrows?

      Romney Plays Victim On Negative Ads: I’m Just Responding To Gingrich’s Attacks

      “But the truth is that Romney outspent Gingrich about 2-1 in South Carolina, and over 4-1 in here the Sunshine State. Romney has also deployed an army of surrogates to bombard Gingrich with negative soundbites and statements. And Gingrich unilaterally withheld from running negative ads in Iowa, and saw his poll
      numbers collapse in the state amid millions of dollars in attacks from a pro-Romney Super PAC”

    Romney is running a totally leftist campaign. Accuse your opponent of doing exactly what you are doing is classic leftist. Whoever voted for this cretin deserves everything they get.

    And FOX is right on board with Willard. The only thing painfully obvious is that FOX in no better then NBC,ABC,CBS,or NPR. The only difference is they stump for the republican of their choice and the others go democrat. Fair and balanced my ass. F*%@’em all

  • http://twitter.com/BecksInsanity Guy Who Talks Polytx

    Newt Gingrich put out an ad slamming Romney for not being sufficiently socialist enough to support a kosher kitchen and calling him a Nazi. Gingrich is running a dirty campaign. He should be ashamed of himself. He should publicly apologize and drop out of the race if he has one ounce of shame left. Mitt for President.

      Guy Who Talks Sh@*……..He vetoed it……spin it any way you and Carl Moron want, a veto is not a vote for kosher meals….OY VEY!!!!

      • wodiej

        Romney is still a liberal.

    • PFFV

      Only an idiot would vote for RomneyCare the Socialist. I guess the shoe fits you. Romney is the white half of Obama, no difference at all, except skin color.

        So that’s what the white half is like. I knew I despised the white half for a reason. Just couldn’t put my finger on it. Now I know what to do with that finger. Ahhh, better not.

      Romney only ran one positive ad. His is the nastiest campaign based on lies that I have ever witnessed.

    • wodiej

      If that’s the case than Romney the liberal should have dropped out in Iowa.

  • Anonymous

    This whole primary is not Kosher. It doesn’t even pass the smell test.

  • PFFV

    It doesn’t matter anymore, the national media wants RomneyCare over a Conservative. Newt started out doing the right thing in running a non-negative campaign but took heavy damage because of it. People want pretty boy, not solutions to our out of control government. I’m so fed up with the average American I could just _____. You fill in the blank, I don’t want to offend any of my friends here.

    • wodiej

      Right on both counts. Our country is full of reality TV thinking and me, me, me. And the Repubs are no better than the Dems. They are all lining their pockets w tax dollars and wasting trillions.

    Every time yoi see ROVE. Wallace and Bret HUME, thay really pour it on.

    • cabensg

      Shep’s a liberal…period, always has been. The only thing FOX still has going for them is some of their other shows like Hannity and some of their correspondents. Their news coverage is the same as the others though.

  • Anonymous

    So, it is okay for Willard spend millions on vicious, defamatory and outright false ads about Gingrich but, it is not okay for Gingrich to do the same.

    I have had enough of Willard’s crying, whining, petulance and temper tantrums.

    Quit and go home already because Americans will be far better off under Gingrich the Conservative than Willard the lying, flip-flopper Democrat!

    Floridians are nuts to vote for Willard the charlaton!

      It ain’t over till it’s over. These smear tactics of Romney are going to resonate across the nation and no amount of money is going to hide it. Watch for a brokered convention. No sour grapes here. Like Sarah said, ‘Let’s keep the vetting going’.

      • cabensg

        Vetting BS. She just doesn’t want Gingrich and isn’t honest enough to say it.

        • Anonymous

          Honestly, I think she likes Rick or perhaps will get in herself. I think she endorses Newt on a state by state basis to keep it going, because he’s closest to Romney. When the time is right, she may swoop in with a helicopter for the wolf kill. A brokered convention would best suit her.

    Santorum is not perfect either, but yards ahead of both these men, and is so much more viable in the polls than Paul.

    I am so glad all the actual conservatives got out of the race so these two jack asses can finally prove once and for all who the biggest a$$hole is. It’s not like we have anything important to focus on or anything.

    Hey Rat boy, when an Obama/Romney debate host asks you to explain how RomneyCare is better than or different than Obamacare, how will you answer?

    Loser.

    Gingrich attack ads? Huh. Wait until after Romney gets the nomination. I predict right now that the New York Times Sunday Magazine has a story already written, to be published the Sunday after Romney gets the nomination, that will enlighten the whole country about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    It will be a heartwarming, positive article that explains all those little details about Mormon beliefs that Christians will embrace with open arms.

  • Trust1TG

    Romney’s record, tactics and dishonesty in debates, speeches and advertisement are facts that stand against him like witness stones.

    He hired Brett O’Donnell, Bachmann’s debate coach and this is responsible for Romney’s performance in FL debates. He improved in style, not content – Romney was caught in seven or more lies in the last debate.

    What Mr Romney really needs to hire is a truth coach.

    Too bad networks do not tell the whole story. Michael Medved explained the Kosher story in detail 31 Jan 2012. He concluded his history lesson with “I would have vetoed the bill (Mass Kosher Kitchen bill”) as Romney did.” Why would a strong Jewish conservative like Michael Medved veto a “Kosher Kitchen” bill as Romney did? Because vetoing the bill did not deprive Jewish residents of a senior citizen home of kosher food. The home was going to provide kosher food to their residents whether they had a kosher kitchen or not. They were going to bring the food in from another kosher kitchen. But instead the Democrates of Mass demanded $600,000 dollars of tax payer money be provided to a private senior citizen center so the kosher food could be prepared on site. The Democrat congress of Mass overrode Gov Romney and spend the $600,000. But the Jewish residents would have had kosher food regardless. Check this out. Listen to the Medved show 31 Jan 2012. This kosher story is just another example of dishonest news coverage. Conservative get the facts before you make the rest of us conservatives look like idiots.
