Gingrich: Why Rove and Stevens
are plain wrong

Human Events, by Newt Gingrich

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 2/20/2013 9:45:21 AM

I am writing this newsletter in a very direct, no baloney, effort to get across how much trouble we Republicans are in and how real the internal party fight is going to be. I strongly support RNC Chairman Reince Priebus’ effort to think through the lessons of 2012 and develop a better path for the Republican Party. However there are going to be some very powerful opponents to any serious rethinking of Republican doctrines and strategies. It is appalling how little some Republican consultants have learned from the 2012 defeat. It is even more disturbing how arrogant their plans for the future are.

Comments:
Clear, unedited, unadulterated truth.

It seems to me that ALL the "Problems/Issues" w/in the past 4 or so Election Cycles can be traced back to One Man "Karl Rove". Either we rid the GOP of him and his ilk or the GOP is finished.

FTA: Of course these consultants have made an amazing amount of money asserting an expertise they clearly don’t have.

I´ve been saying this since 1992. Show me a losing campaign with dumbed-down messaging and you can bet there has been an army of overpaid K street consultants running the show. Far too many of these hired guns care more for their reputations with the national press corps than they do with winning elections.

The problem is the democrats have rocked us back on our heels trying to counter the outright lies they keep spreading. Faster than we can even digest the BS, they come at us from all angles with more. Until someone can quickly and efficiently expose the lefts utter disregard for the truth, we´re left fighting amongst ourselves. It´s not a winning formula.

Newt makes good points, but unless and until the Republican Party recognizes the enormity of election fraud which took place, it will be even worse in subsequent elections. I am still distraught over their lack of recognition of it and their lack of the fury I feel over it. Do not think for one minute the democrats are not already working on 2014 and 2016! And the Republicans are sitting around sucking their thumbs.

Brilliant - typical Newt. The apologists try to marginalize him due to his "baggage", but when he´s right - he´s right. The consultants live in a bubble. Candidates must be vetted - but who does the vetting is the issue. Technology is effective when properly applied: garbage in is still garbage out. Ignore the baggage and listen to this man.

The problem is #6 that those that want to fight the liberal slander and their corrupting of the Conservative message are being blocked by the Republican Establishment who only purpose and goal is to retain power and make money.

If you exercise game theory, you see that the Republican Establishment wins, even when they lose. The spending will not be cut, the promises they made to large corporate contributors will be kept, and they as a result remain in control of the money and continue to profit trying to win elections.

If the Republican Establishment does win, they have to do so with candidates that they can rely on not to threaten their positions, their promises, nor the money being spent by the government.

This is ultimately the reason why Tea Party candidates are being targeted by the Republican Establishment. "Purity" is a false flag dredged up to cloud the issue. The Tea Party´s main concern is taxation and spending. All other issues are bolted on to its frame by those trying to carry their agenda forward.

Well said, Speaker.

FTA: "Republicans need to drop the consultant-centric model and go back to a system in which candidates have to think and consultants are adviser and implementers but understand that the elected official is the one who has to represent the voters and make the key decisions."

Newt understands the machinations of the gop establishment...and he´s been fighting it his entire career.
He knows the power that the people have and when he was able to tell them, they listened.
We don´t need no stinkin´ consultants telling us what we like about their candidates.
Kudos Newt.

Newt can be very good and he can be very bad. Today he is very, very good. The "consultants" have been dreadful for several election cycles. Karl Rove manufactured G.W.´s "compassionate conservatism" which we all knew was a fraud from the jump. I do look around and wonder where the Republican politician may be who actually believes in something. Honestly, I can´t identify even one.

Handing millions to Washington based consultants to destroy the candidates they dislike . . .

For me, this sums up the Romney campaign and his surrogates, Coulter, Rubin and Sununu.

Romney drew a lot - a whole lot!! - of conservative blood to win that primary. And he did not emerge stronger than when he went in. That must never ever happen again.

We had some very good people running for President. And we did most of the dirty for Obama.

I´m grateful for Newt´s courage.

He lost me when he brought up Calista. Calista, Calista, Calista. Someone other than the consultants he is criticizing also failed to learn from past failed campaigns, Newt himself. Admittedly a very smart man but very self-absorbed and "whipped".

Here´s a suggestion, Newt. You do the writing and let someone else put their name in the byline.

OP: Thanx for posting this article. And special thanx for your very incisive post #10. I can see why you admire and respect Newt Gingrich, as I do.

Newt offers us a scathing critique of a clown ("MC Rove") who is trying to engineer future GOP failures, and the arrogantly ignorant (but rich from our donations) buffoon who oversaw our last disaster in a classically Newtonian read.

And one of our people sees fit to offer the Dem/media talking point about moon colonies?! Sheesh!

Until such time as we seize control of the classrooms,city hall and the courtrooms, all this tech nonsense is nothing more than blowing smoke to obscure the real problem. That problem is that we and our children have been brainwashed and are doing exactly what our enemies want us to do by focusing on DC.

Romney snatched Defeat from the Jaws Of Victory at the beginning of the second debate when he did not pin Curly´s ears back with Benghazi.
Instead his consultants like Stevens counseled him to stall.

This is hidebound, and Rove et al have one real goal in mind in all this and it is not winning elections, and it is not high and lofty:

merely lining their greasy pockets and stuffing their fat little ´white hands full of cash.
Newt is right.

Romney and surogates destroyed the other republicans, but refused to do the same with Obama.

They have got to understand how to compaign in this age. Its apparent new blood is needed.

The Replubicans need to understand the strategy of the Democrats. Quit crying about the media and start communicating effectively. There was no answer to all of the lies from Obama yesterday.

And they need to devise a strategy to take back the schools. The kids are being brainwashed. Its sickening.

Nina Easton´s (Fortune Magazine writer) husband was part of the Romney problem. Stupid RINOs were afraid to smash Obama´s head against the pavement for fear of being called racist by the lame stream media. The RINO consultant class should have their collective heads beaten with baseball bats. We fail because of inept cowardly party leadership.

Say what you want, but Newt gets it, as does Sarah... both were attacked by Dems and GOP elite... What did Sarah call them... Crony Corporate Capitalists... and their $400MM that was wasted last year... Led by the opportunist Snake, Rove... Remember how the press was following Sarah and her family on her I Love America East Coast Tour... They were eating out of her hands on her terms... Newt has the DC experience, knows the ropes, and speaks the truth here... He needs to convince RNC to disband and rebrand so voter fraud can be fought, have fewer debates with no press, just the candidates, and implement his plan of candidate-centered leadership in local, state, primary and general elections... GOP already has 30 governors!

As above poster said, "Ignore Newt at your peril"!

There is a rising chorus on the left, most recently articulated in an op-ed by Neera Tanden and Michael Linden (“Deficits are not destiny”) of the Center for American Progress, that our fiscal conversation should be declared over and plans for meaningful entitlement reforms mothballed. These voices argue that we can have substantial new spending on public investments, a secure safety net, no middle-class tax increase — all without addressing entitlement spending. Lo, if it were so. But the left’s reasoning is predicated on four fiscal fantasies that Democrats must see through

Former U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett stood Friday before a group and gleefully proclaimed that, because he will never again appear on a ballot, he can say anything he wants. Then he did. The Utah Republican was the invited guest luncheon speaker at The Leonardo in Salt Lake City during the annual conference of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists. He knew he was speaking to a few dozen folks who earn a living making fun of politicians like him. And he knew he was going to be quoted.

What, instead, is required — to restore its ability to make good, winning, decisions — is virtue: understanding. This critical distinction appears lost on the politicos.

On Sunday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin denounced the Senate´s immigration bill in an exclusive opinion piece for Breitbart News. One week before that, though, Palin laid out a promise and a warning to her own party in a speech to the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, D.C. She said Americans do not deserve the exceptional country its founding fathers left them if they do not keep faith with the working class.

A lot has been said about why Mitt Romney lost the presidential election, from his failure to turn out more white working-class voters to his failure to win more of the Latino voters who did turn out. Republican strategist Karl Rove offered the latest take Thursday in remarks detailing how he tried, from his perch at an outside group forbidden by law from coordinating with the campaign, to signal to Romney´s team that they should make changes in course and defend their candidate more fiercely.

The Gang of Eight's so-called "immigration overhaul" is pretty much dead on arrival in the House, but that isn't stopping Senators Marco Rubio and Kelly Ayotte from voting for it. But apparently, the House not taking up the bill isn't all these two, and maybe other Republicans, have to worry about. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is calling for both to be primaried. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has the most influence among conservative voters in Republican primaries, told Breitbart News on Tuesday that Sens.

On Monday, GOP political commentator Karl Rove sharply criticized a recent Breitbart News article on new language in the Senate amnesty bill. Appearing on FoxNews to defend the bill´s security provisions, Rove singled out a Breitbart story which appeared Friday as "simply not true." Rove´s criticism, however, was factually incorrect. The article Rove attacked, detailed a new provision in the then-Corker-Hoeven amendment which would allow immigrants on work visas who overstayed their visas to still apply for a green card. In other words, breaking immigration law in the future would not prevent

Is there anyone remaining with an IQ above room temperature who actually believes that the Republican Party believes in limited government, as defined by the U.S. constitution? If so, they have either been hibernating or have been in complete self-denial. Every election cycle the Republican Party counts on its “conservative base” to dutifully turn out and mark their ballot for whatever candidate has been selected by the GOP leadership. We are told ad infinitum that doing so will keep the Democrat liberal demons from furthering their agenda. The inside-the-beltway establishment has been chanting this mantra for years

The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.

Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape

KOMO-TV reports that the city´s Office of Civil Rights instructed city workers in a recent internal memo to avoid using the words because some may find them offensive.

The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."

This means more than just an expansion of the probe to the FEC. It´s a new link to the Obama team. In May this column noted that the targeting of conservatives started in 2008, when liberals began a coordinated campaign of siccing the federal government on political opponents.
