It has been obvious since October that the Gingrich strategy for capturing the Republican nomination for President includes running against the “news� media as well as President Obama.

This confrontation between Newt Gingrich and CNN’s John King during the first moments of the GOP debate vindicates the shrewdness of that plan. The crowd loved it an King had it coming. Among other things Newt said:

I think the destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media makes it harder to govern this country, harder to attract decent people to run for public office … I am tired of the elite media protecting Barack Obama by attacking Republicans.

    What can you say about Newt?

    1. His first wife was 7 years older than him and was his high school math teacher. Dumped her for Wife #2 because, “She’s not young enough or pretty enough to be the wife of the President. And besides, she has cancer.” =8-0
    2. Wife #2 was dumped because she wouldn’t agree to a sham/show marriage. =8-O
    3. Wife #3 is 23, yes, 23 years YOUNGER than he is (i.e. could be his DAUGHTER!)

    Big pr!ck Newt went prowling long before dumping Wives #1 & #2.

    What does this tell me: Newt is in it for Newt and to hell with anybody else. He has loyalty only to himself. He will sell you and everybody else out in a heart beat if he can get either a) $$$$ or, b) a woodie out of it.

    Ron Paul is our only hope.
