Gingrich whips out ‘L’ word to describe Romney

by Jane Musgrave | January 29th, 2012

THE VILLAGES – Mitt Romney is no long a mere moderate, according to Newt Gingrich. He’s a full blown liberal.

Campaigning in front of as many as 3,000 retirees under the blazing Florida sun, Gingrich blasted his chief GOP presidential rival for claiming he wasn’t a good friend and close policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan.

To show how wrong the former Massachusetts governor is about his relationship with the Republican icon, Gingrich said the late president’s son, Michael, will be campaigning with him Monday when he crisscrosses the state on one last attempt to woo voters before Tuesday’s primary.

“Michael will be here tomorrow to prove to every doubting person that I am the legitimate heir of the Reagan movement not some liberal from Massachusetts,” he said.

    “heir to the Reagan movement”.. Like Newt has the right to claim this? Newt is a good guy, but has gone off the rails.

    I think he has drilled too many holes in his own boat and recovery is gone. Time to bid farewell.

    I would hate to have to vote Newt instead of Obama, but I would. But Romney is clearly the better and clear choice.

    Proven, reliable, presidential.

    He’s not a very good guy if you ask the people who were around him over the years.

  4. The Real Perspective Says:

    President Obama will be easily re elected.

    Every Republican I see in my party is a hypocrite! I have a war criminal as a senator “West” Another who is just a bold faced liar ”Rubio”, who lies about everything from his family’s heritage to his race? I don’t think this country could survive another Bush! Who are the idiots who vote for these people? It should be a requirement that everyone have a minimum 2 years additional college to Vote!

    Definition of the word LIBERAL

    Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or AUTHORITARIAN attitudes, views, or dogmas; FREE from BIGOTRY.
    Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.
    Inclined to respect views and beliefs that differ from your own
    Favoring political reforms tending twoards DEMOCRACY and personal FREEDOM for the individual.
    Generous, Ample, Abundant.
    Permissible or appropriate for a person of free birth.

    I see nothing there that is not a compliment or a good, positive attribute.
    ( for all you who think the word is some kind of insult)

    Well, at at least with President Obama and First Lady, Michelle, we pretty much know who we have in office. I haven’t even seen his “bus” yet. I almost wrote recreational vehicle, but there is no way I can call it that.

    I am an undocumented immigrant and gay. So I know I will be voting for Romney.
    He is going to make it possible for me to marry my boyfriend.( he was for gay marriage in Mass. as Gov.) I know he will do it. And he will also give me amnesty so I can get all those programs I always hear about where they pay for your house and food so you don’t have to work really.(self-deportation means make them legal and all the illegals disappear on their own)
    See he tries to tell everyone he is a conservative but he really is a far left liberal. he father, who he speaks highly of, taught him to read and follow the teachings of Alinski. So He his father was very liberal and a friend of Alinski. Mitt always talks about how much his father was an influence on him and his beliefs.
    Yes, Mitt Romney will perfect Obamacare after all it was his invention. I wonder, since he is a Mormon and they believe in having more than one wife if he will make it legal for me to marry more than one of my boyfriends? I hope so.
