The Gingrich That Stole Christmas

On Sunday's, THIS WEEK WITH GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, disgraced former Republican Speaker Of The House, Newt Gingrich, hoped to pick a petty fight with the public interest in the new White House dog by arrogantly proclaiming "who cares" and other mean spirited and very petty comments. Way to go, Newt. Many in the public, including children, have a real interest in this nonpolitical story involving the new White House dog.gingrich.jpg

Little stories such as the new White House dog create pleasant stories that many in the public love to hear. The dog might really a gift to the two young Obama girls by their father, the president, but the public loves to hear about this story. Just like the last White House dog, Barney, that belonged to George Bush, or even Socks the cat, of the Clinton's, White House pets always have a big public interest appeal.

Hey Newt, a large part of American politics is timing. You don't attract 84 ethics charges if you wanted to remain as Speaker Of The House and not resign in disgrace. You don't surprise your wife dying of cancer on her death bed with news that you're having an extramarital affair. You don't shut down government by withholding critical funding. You don't champion more oil drilling to reduce oil prices, when oil prices are really driven by market speculation, not the actual number of oil wells located on sensitive federal lands. And now you're cheering on that wacky "Tea Party" movement.

Newt, you just don't have good political sense. Picking a fight with the White House dog isn't cool.

I don't know who jackass Newt thinks he is: A typical Bush/Cheney/Rove/Rush/Palin Republican he talks big about being tough but the jackass was too scared to fight in a real war. During the mandatory draft years of the Vietnam War all of the above, except Palin of course, evaded the draft. What cowardly hypocrites. All the potential Republican nominees are recusing themselves from eligibility for the 2012 election. Palin, gone. Jindal, gone. Now Newt. Who will be left, Alan Keyes?

Paul Hooson:

Hello Allen. I sure can't figure out Newt myself. Few politicians have so mismanaged their political careers as Next has. In my opinion, Newt's current fight with the new White House dog lowers Gingrich down to the level of a complete idiot, and not just merely some politician with very poor political instincts. The Republican Party is suffering from serious intellectual bankruptcy right now with wacky leaders like Gingrich, Limbaugh, Palin, etc. That's hardly their path back to power. Even elderly John McCain, was chiefly made the GOP nominee only because he was their elder statesman, much like someone like a Bob Dole once became their nominee. That's like the old Soviet Politburo where the oldest party member was chosen as leader, year's past their real prime.

...aaaaand the left exhumes a fifteen-year-old joke that wasn't even all that clever in 1994.

I like Bo. I smile when I see Bo on the tube. The press cooing over anything and everything Obama, of which the coverage of Bo is regrettably part...already boring and getting more so by the day. As the guy says--who cares?

Christina Viering:

I think that says it all.
