If He'd Deny Congress the Truth...
Like I say, folks... piling on.
Elliott Abrams writes in National Review Online today, "As a new member of Congress in the Reagan years - and I was an assistant secretary of state - Mr. Gingrich voted with the president regularly, but equally often spewed insulting rhetoric at Reagan, his top aides, and his policies to defeat Communism. Gingrich was voluble and certain in predicting that Reagan’s policies would fail, and in all of this he was dead wrong."
Hmm... Elliott Abrams... wasn't he convicted in 1991 on two misdemeanor counts of unlawfully withholding information from Congress? (Oh, well... never mind...)
But, hey... my "problem" with Mr. Abrams isn't his history of ly... er... "withholding information from Congress," nor is it his loyalty to his last boss... George W. Bush. Nope. Abrams is clearly on a "team" and that "team" is the GOP Establishment. I get it!
No... what bothers me about this (latest) hit piece on Gingrich is simply this:
Where's the record of Abrams' "letting us in" on this "shocking" info in the '80's... in the '90's... in the '00's?
Where are the quotes; what exactly did Gingrich say "against" Reagan?
What "insulting rhetoric" is Abrams referring to and why are we only hearing of it now...???
Folks... there's a clear pattern here.
Again... I ask you: What does it say about Newt Gingrich that he's so hated and feared not by just the Democrats... not by just the mainstream media... but by the GOP Establishment - the same GOP Establishment which has betrayed conservatism time and time again?
If Ronald Reagan were on record making these accusations against Newt Gingrich... well... then I'd be anti-Gingrich too.
But Ronald Reagan clearly WASN'T anti-Gingrich!
Folks... again... and again, and again, and again... what's the record here? The record is of a man - Newt Gingrich - who "criticized" Ronald Reagan for not going as far RIGHT as the young firebrand Gingrich wanted to go!
Folks... Gingrich is being criticized - from the supposed "Right" - for having been more ambitiously conservative than... RONALD REAGAN!
That's the complain from the GOP Establishment. That's what they'd have us believe.
Folks... again... again, and again, and again... look at what Newt accomplished in little more than a decade starting as a back-bench member of the (then) Republican (minority) House: He organized conservatives into movement which achieved power in the 1994 Republican Revolution! He came up with and got much of the conservative Contract With America passed! He fought - and lost - a battle with President Bill Clinton where Gingrich's position was he wanted to shrink government and government spending... and yet having lost the battle he still ended up with his ideals "winning the war" (if only temporarily) via the balanced budgets of the late '90's and early '00's!
Folks... is what I'm pointing to - the facts I'm outlining - getting through?
I pray to God it is.
There are BAD people going after Newt Gingrich. People who obviously prefer to be "Big Fish" even in a polluted pond.
Look at who the people who oppose Gingrich are and look at the tactics they're using.
Ron Paul criticizes Gingrich.
Ron Paul doesn't LIE about Gingrich.
Romney...? Romney's surrogates?
Don't be fooled, folks. Don't let the pile on stampede you. Gingrich should be the GOP presidential nominee. As GOP presidential nominee Gingrich would win. As President... I have no doubt whatsoever that Newt Gingrich would put Country and Constitution first and foremost in every policy coming out of a Gingrich Administration.
