Mark Levin calls out Krauthammer, Will, Coulter, and Rubin

Mark Levin says that the attacks on Newt Gingrich reminds him of how Sarah Palin has been attacked, and he specifically criticizes Charles Krauthammer, George Will, Ann Coulter, and Jennifer Rubin for basically being over the top in their criticism of Newt and their silence on Romney:

My views on this primary are exactly like Mark’s. Bachmann or Santorum. Gingrich over Romney. Back Romney if he’s the nominee.

“Mark Levin says that the attacks on Newt Gingrich reminds him of how Sarah Palin has been attacked…”

Yes, with one little difference: Palin is a genuine, thorough, consistent conservative, and Newt is a slippery buzzard.

Would you actually believe anything that Ann Coulter says, Go to YouTube, listen to Ann Coulter on Romney, she said he would get the nomination and would lose to Obama, She also said that she supports Ron Paul who is out of touch, And has a horrific foreign policy goal. I need not say more, after that telling debate on Thursday 12/15/11 I would no more trust, Ann Coulter than I would Obama. Rather listening,and allowing others to lead you, maybe you should take on an novel idea, and seek the truth.

I will vote for anyone with a pulse on the “R” side over the o-bomination in office currently; no one in the pool is my first choice. I want a Pence, a Ryan, a West….someone I can be behind 99% since 100% is impossible. The Messiah has not yet returned, only HE gets a full 100.

It really does not supprise me that Krauthammer likes Romney because he like Romney are fellow give government guys….It was Krauthammer that worked in the Carter Administration and campaigned against Reagan and was a speech writer for Mondale…(another big government guy) I find it amazing that people call Krauthammer a conservative….domestically Krauthammer is extremely liberal and support position like legalization of marajuana, and legalized abortion, he is also an opponent of the death penalty. I find the last one hypocritical since he takes a harder line internationally and is somewhat of a military hawk in his positions. Krauthammer who is a registered republican does not really hold to the party platform and his views, in my opinion, are most definitely liberal or at a minimum moderate. So, what should it be any suprise to find him viciously attacking Newt because Krauthammers positions are diametrically opposed to those of Newt Gingrich.… Read more »

Obama has given us a trillion reasons not to vote for him. The GOP candidates have not given us any good reason to vote for them and so there is so much disagreement between conservatives. The true conservative candidates are not going after Obama out of fear that attacking him will destroy their chances. They couldn’t be more wrong about that.

We need a candidate we can all stand behind. We need a candidate that can take it to him and still continue to push a conservative agenda in the Palin style. Otherwise we are going to see another four years and beyond of this nightmare.

In my opinion we have already lost the most likely candidate to turn this mess around and we are going to lose the next best candidate if they don’t shown their leadership capabilities and turn their campaign to the offensive.

The 500 pound gorilla in the room here is the obvious flaw Obama has. His father has never been an American citizen and Obama should NEVER have been allowed to run for office. In 2008 or in 2012.

Calling Newt a Marxist isn’t so far off. He was into Global Warming garbage. Read Climate Gate.

Yes so was Mitt Romney, John Huntsman, Chris Christie etc etc etc. And Newt *never* supported cap and trade, he actually did the opposite, called “opposing”.

You guys see the video of Michelle Bachman in 2008? She asked Newt to go to her district to support her re-election, and they discussed Fannie and freddie. Newt mentioned he did consulting for freddie(honesty!?!), and he said the only asnwer was NO BAIL OUT for them and to break them up and make them private companies. EXACTLY what a marxist/socialist/progressive would support, right?
Why did Bachman ask that evil progressive Newt to campaign for her in 2008? (no good deed goes unpunished, Newt didn’t need to campaign for her, he was retired)
As for Santorum, you know his mentor right?

J.A. Topfke

Yes, Newt did support cap and trade. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/hotpolitics/interviews/gingrich.html

Here’s the money quote: “I think if you have mandatory carbon caps combined with a trading system, much like we did with sulfur, and if you have a tax-incentive program for investing in the solutions, that there’s a package there that’s very, very good. And frankly, it’s something I would strongly support.”

He also co-sponsored the Global Warming Prevention Act (H.R. 1078).

Mark Levin is incoherent. All these attacks are like attacks on Palin?? Really?? The attacks on Palin were unfounded. Newt on the other hand has a “whole grave yard of skeletons in his closet.” Mark, don’t “throw reason and rationality out the door.” Here’s some reason and rationality. Gingrich’s accomplishments: Received 37 million dollars from the health care industry. He supported Federal health care mandate over a 20 year period. Entered Congress making only 10 thousand dollars a year and left Congress worth 7.5 million. “The greatest president of the 20th Century was Franklin Delano Roosevelt”. Newt is a political celebrity who gets more than 60 thousand dollars per speech. Supported TARP. 84 ethics complaints against him while speaker. Had to leave Congress in disgrace and paying over 300 thousand in fines. Wanted to solve Man Made Global Warming with giant mirrors. Told a class on video that women shouldn’t… Read more »

Hey did ya hear Newt Gingrich bought his trophy wife gifts from Tiffany’s? What a hideous couple of 1 percenters they are. And did you know Newt was divorced too? yeah… he’s disgusting. (those are fair game)

Meanwhile, the fact that Glenn Beck was a vulgar cheating abusive husband, then got divorced and broke up his family? Hey that’s cool. Because he’s Mormon now and Jesus forgave him. Gingrich however is a *whispers*… Catholic…. so he’s going to Hell.

I congratulate you, you carry Nancy’s water very well. The 84 ethics charged as filed by NANCY PELOSI. 83 dismissed. 1 a minor charge. In case you missed the past 3 years, not only the left, but many familiar faces on the right trashed Sarah Palin, now the same conservative critics to trash Palin, are targeting Newt. That’s what Levin is referring to. I don’t care who supports who, But I’m sick of being told who I can and can’t support. I find it laughable for these people to call newt a big scarey socialist/marxist, then offer up Romney as the cure. You will notice I’m not trashing Perry and I will not, if he makes a come back and wins, I will vote him happily.

However, I am not willing to throw a two-year-old’s temper tantrum if we don’t get that dream candidate this election cycle and have to go, for now, with a candidate who will merely stave off the concentration camps and mass executions that Obama’s lifelong mentors and buddies are visualizing in the near future. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlN2t0oERHk

Those are the very ones. Well, for what it’s worth Ron Paul for all his time in congress hasn’t accomplished anything. Ron Paul and his cultist followers have accomplished NOTHING for the freedom movement in 30+ years. It is an effective movement if the agenda is building a mailing list and enriching a guy through a newsletter. It is ineffective if the goal is to impact public policy and the electoral process. Two different versions of socialism (Reps & Dems) is not something Ron Paul supporters really think, it is something that enables them to self-righteously have no impact on society whatsoever. I do agree Ron Paul is exactly right about the danger of a government trying to protect us from ourselves. Where Ron Paul is wrong is his refusal to advocate for a government protecting us from OTHERS. Ron, quit your constant defense of Iran and Islamic terrorists, and… Read more »

It’s not just that they’re attacking Newt. It’s that they’re attacking Newt to help Romney. Sad thing is they probably wouldn’t go nearly as hard against Obama.

I don’t understand conservatives. They didn’t vote for McCain, so Obama won. Now, they say they won’t vote for anyone who isn’t a conservative, meaning the only ones left to vote for are Bachman and Santorum and neither is going to get the nomination. Therefore, conservatives won’t vote and Obama will get a second term at the end of which we will no longer have our country. I am not thrilled about any of the candidates; I like Palin. But, I am not going to sit at home and watch Obama get re-elected. That is disasterous.

Bachmann or Santorum can win if enough people vote for them. Both of them are stark contrasts to Obama, which can’t be said about Romney. A choice between two shades of liberal is no choice at all.

These so called conservative commentators on the big networks are all DC establishment [email protected] kissers. They say Newt grabbed the first club his inner marxist could find. After thinking about this for several hours, perhaps Newt just used the very attack Romney would fear the most to shut him up. It’s going to be used by the Democrats anyway.

Exactly, they are STILL timid to use the scarey word ‘marxist’ or ‘socialist’ to describe obama. But Newt? oh sure he’s a total marxist/socialist. It’s the season of cannibalism for conservatives.

DRW1960 please, Levin endorsed Thompson…when he dropped out Levin said he’d rather have Romney over McCain…when McCain was the nominee he supported him for about 15 hours before the election. Both are RINO losers, and Levin also went on to say they both have mortal flaws.
