Mark Levin: Newt did more for the conservative movement than virtually all of his critics today

Mark Levin is, by his own admission, no special pleader for Newt Gingrich and he says that we can certainly criticize Gingrich on substance. But he says to count him out among those that are trashing Gingrich. In fact, he opened the show saying that if this trashing of Newt Gingrich is what the conservative movement has come to, then count him out.

This quote from Levin probably sums up his point about Newt more than anything else:

“Newt Gingrich, if he does nothing else, did more for the conservative movement and to stop the liberal Democrats in the House of Representatives than virtually everybody today who is criticizing him!”



He also plays the full audio in context, of the so-called Reagan-bashing that Newt did back in 1988, that absolutely disproves the idea that Newt was bashing Reagan at all.

Listen to the full segment. It is excellent:

Then why doesn’t Levin endorse Gingrich? I still maintain that while Romney has claimed to have created thousands of state jobs, Gingrich was responsible for creating millions of jobs throughout the country. Santorum? I suppose he can be credited for creating all those jobs to the bridge from nowhere.

Gingrich is the one who has the national experience and proven record at a time when our American has been molested by the policies and czars of Obama. It will take a big thinker and doer like Gingrich to return America to its greatness.

How much is the Military Industrial complex paying journalist now to spread war propaganda like its a hard news story with facts? Iranians in the U.S. trying to assassinate Saudi Americans. Which of your buddies got paid from which military contractor to spread that laughable lie, yet your buddy Sean Hannity spreads it endlessly.

Dear Mr. West When I consider the past and current positions on the issues of the current slate of RINO candidates vying for President of the United States … it would appear that those with a right wing liberal ideology have taken over the Republican Party … a right wing liberal ideology that does not have a place within the now Marxist Democrat Party. Why you or Sarah Palin … captial C Conservatives … would align yourselves with any of these candidates prior to the Presidential race against Barack Obama is beyond my understanding. Mr. West … why you have not entered the race is also beyond my understanding. I am becoming very frustrated with someone … who I perceive as a great Stateman … for standing on the beach while possessing all the skills to save a drowing America.

NEWT GINGRICH – IDEOLOGY FLIP FLOP OR COMPROMISED PRINCIPLES In the April 24, 2007 interview with Gingrich, the former House Speaker had the following praise for Freddie Mac and the whole GSE (Government-Sponsored Enterprise) concept: “I think a GSE for space exploration ought to be seriously considered — I’m convinced that if NASA were a GSE, we probably would be on Mars today. Certainly there is a lot of debate today about the housing GSEs, but I think it is telling that there is strong bipartisan support for maintaining the GSE model in housing. There is not much support for the idea of removing the GSE charters from Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. And I think it’s clear why. The housing GSEs have made an important contribution to homeownership and the housing finance system. We have a much more liquid and stable housing finance system than we would have without… Read more »

Newt, who wants to build an American colony on the moon by the end of his second term is running as a “conservative.” Newt, who’s committed adultery in 2 marriages and divorced his ex-wives when they were ill, is conservative. Newt, the erratic, verbal bomb thrower, calling Ryan’s plan “right wing social engineering,” and sitting on the couch with Pelosi, is a conservative. Newt the conservative “outsider” who spent his life in Washington, profiting and peddling interest. Do you understand how backwards and hypocritical that is? If you’re going to vote for Newt, don’t lie to yourself and say he’s running as a conservative outsider. Let’s get real Americans. We are a center-right country, not a far right country.

After those “powerhouses” John McCain and Bob Dole came out swinging for Mittens, I had a fleeting thought that I might reconsider my unwavering support of Newt. But then I remembered how weak Dole and McCain were as candidates and how I supported those losers anyway because I believed the Republican elite must have known something I didn’t. Well, they didn’t, and see where it has led us. This time I’m not drinking the Kool-aid. I’m with Newt.

How about someone pressing someone on Romney’s defrauding of Medicare? He made millions and thousands lost their jobs after Bain capital sold Damon to Corning. When first confronted with the accusation in 1994, Romney claimed he knew nothing of it. Later, when it was revealed that he most definitely knew, he said he investigated and stopped the fraud in mid 1992. Later the truth came out. Romney did know and allowed the fraud to continue right up until the day they sold Damon to Corning in mid 1993. Corning found the fraud and stopped it but were fined 119 million since by buying the company, they took over any and al debts. They were forced to close Damon and lay off every one of it’s thousands of employees. Bain made 12 million (7.4 million profit) and Mitt made 473,000. Who says crime doesn’t pay?

Mr. Levin is quite right. Say what you will about New Gingrich, but he was the genius behind the 1994 Republican takeover of the House of Representatives — ending 40 years of Democrat control and corruption. Gingrich’s “Contract With America” was largely enacted and fundamentally improved American policy. Yes, Newt made enemies. Shaker-uppers usually do. But he has solid and big achievements that he can point to.

I’m here as a visitor, never been a very political person, until Obama was elected and started ramming bailouts, healthcare, birthcontrol mandates, etc. down our throats. And I am absolutley stunned by how this Republican election season is being carried out. And beginning to believe that if Romney gets the nomination, I will for the first time in my life vote third party, or not vote at all, as a protest against the stupid Republican establishment. Obama’s re-election will give them what they deserve.

Levin is (for public consumption on his show) a loud mouthed nitwit whose idea of intelligent debate is telling his carefully screened callers to “shut up,” and “get outta here.” Now this is funny and gets him a good following, and all is fair in the entertainment business, but he has a serious point here. The Bushes and their retainers will successfully ram Milquetoast Mitt up the behind of the Tea Party, a “movement” they created for their benefit, and they will never allow its members to hijack it for there own benefit. What really will be interesting is to see how aggressively and passionately guys like Levin, Rush, Savage, etc. promote Romney this summer and fall. Will they do so lukewarmly, or with false enthusiasm?

No “moderate conservative” would call patriotic Americans who want a restoration of constitutional limits on federal power and a return to fiscal sanity by the epithet of the uberleft.

Either Gingrich or Romney would be far better than Obama. But our country is in deep trouble, and the technocratic tinkering that Romney favors falls far short of what will be needed to get the US back on track. Sort of like sending in Clark Kent to do the job of Superman.

We have been rope-a-doped before. Liberals hailed McCain as a “maverick” and a “reasonable” Republican, until he got the nomination and then they attacked him mercilessly. Let us hope that if Romney is nominated, you will be as passionate in your support of him, as you have been in joining with the uberleft in gratuitously smearing the tea party–whom Romney will need in November.

Romney would be far worse than Obama because of one thing – term limits. Obama can’t win again in 2016. Romney could extend this spending spree all the way till 2020. You can’t ignore the fact that Romney wants to increase military spending, and wants to debate the merits of Romneycare vs. Obama care. When you increase military spend, increase social spending – you balloon deficits. We passed 100% of GDP – our debt is larger than our GDP now. It can’t hit 200% – we’ll default before then. Romney’s one chance to do something about deficits will take the form of unprecedented new taxing authority – he supports VAT taxes. VAT taxes are hidden – but ultimately paid for by the consumers of products and services – they are a regressive tax. But that isn’t the main thing – don’t hope for any solution to the real problem –… Read more »

Our “bite” ran half these establishment types back to the unemployment office last time. We couldn’t help it that not enough “moderates” who want to “compromise” with Socialists (aka, stupid sheep that get their news from ABC?NBC/CBS and the Daily Show) couldn’t catch the clue train because they hit every branch on the stupid tree on the way to the party.

The GOP establishment decided they weren’t going to have Newt whatever the base of the party may have wanted. Period. And since they have deep pockets and most of the conservative opinionators in the media on the payroll one way or another they were able to deploy this machine to trash Gingrich. I’m no particular fan of Gingrich but it’s very obvious what’s happened. So as Erick Erickson said the fix is in and the Republican party is going to nominate a Wall Street asset stripper with swiss bank accounts who governed like a Democrat when actually in office.

Regarding the few comments you mention, I’ll say only that Gingrich’s record when he had power to act (as opposed to talking) was very clear. He has a 90% positive rating with the American Conservative Union (Romney’s ACU rating as governor was 55%) and was responsible for the only balanced budgets in my lifetime. Those famous “Clinton surpluses” the Democrats are so fond of waving at us? Those are actually Newt’s doing; Clinton was dragged into them kicking and screaming. They shut down the government TWICE to get sane budgets. Newt Gingrich did that. Gingrich spent much of the last 10 years running American Solutions, an organization whose stated goal was to float ideas that would garner at least 70% support from the American public. That’s a sound strategy for achieving legislative success, and for beating back Progressivism, the radical minority that the Democratic party has come to represent. Yes,… Read more »

Regarding Drudge, he created a gathering point for headlines. This serves only the cause of news junkies, not the cause of conservatism. An objective survey of news sources actually classified the Drudge Report as slightly to the left of center, because the content of the headlines he posts tend to slide in the direction favored by the headline-writers. Drudge, himself, is conservative, but his accomplishments do not serve to achieve the conservative agenda.

Have you used the Drudge Report? Drudge writes the links himself, which is why much of the fun is finding the facts he’s referencing in the article he links to (usually buried). Drudge uses the power of headlines to highlight the bias of news sources.

Here’s a perfect example:
Drudge’s link (from my recollection):
“FED gave secret loans of $7.7 Trillion”

Now compare that with the articles actual headline, and where the part about 7.7 Trillion is buried:
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-11-28/secret-fed-loans-undisclosed-to-congress-gave-banks-13-billion-in-income.html

Drudge is performing a public service for conservatism which is difficult to understate.

The Bottom Line: If Newt Gingrich were as good looking as Romney, this primary would have been over long ago. & Newt would win The White House by a landslide. Sorry to disappoint everyone but since JFK hit the TV is 1960, elections are never about leadership, policies, experience etc. They are 99% based on looks, ‘gift of gab’ and & charisma. Does the name Barack Obama come to mind??
Just one example: Check out the stats on single women for Clinton, Obama and Romney vs their older (not sexy) opponents. Duh….
Wake Up America – If we don’t qualify the electorate, we are doomed.
Let’s pray Newt becomes that 1% exception to the rule.
