TIME FOR NEWT TO DO THE HONORABLE THING

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the dwindling fortunes of the Gingrich campaign and his opportunity to exit gracefully while saving the GOP from the electoral debacle that will ensue if Romney gets its presidential nomination: About a week after his surprising victory in the South Carolina primary, Newt Gingrich did an interview with ABC [...]

DEBATE VIDEO: SANTORUM CALLS OBAMACARE THE BIGGEST ISSUE OF THE ELECTION

Santorum used ObamaCare to define himself as the only genuine conservative in the race by describing the histories of Romney and Gingrich as fair weather conservatives who caved on health reform: The biggest issue we have to deal with in this election that’s crushing the economy, will crush it even further and crush freedom … [...]

THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING THE MSM

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses the shallowness that pervades contemporary journalism and how Newt Gingrich has exploited it to keep his campaign alive: Newt realized early on that much of the voter indignation that has manifested itself in the Tea Party movement is driven by media complicity with Obama in his ongoing effort [...]

DEBATE VIDEO: NEWT ON REPEALING OCARE

It is certainly true that Newt has been on the wrong side of the health reform debate on more than one occasion,  but his answer to a question about how ObamaCare can be repealed is excellent. And he also manages to get in this zinger about Obama’s pathetic jobs record: Why is President Obama for young people being [...]

DEBATE VIDEO: GIVE US DIRTY LAUNDRY

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 [...]

VIDEO: THE KING OF BAIN

This is exactly how Romney will be portrayed in the general election—-not only by the White House but by the “news” media as well. His susceptibility to such attacks is why former DNC Chair Donna Brazile says he is the weakest candidate in the GOP field:

JEB EX MACHINA?

My column for today’s American Spectator discusses the sad state of the GOP race for the 2012 presidential nomination, and the need for a deus ex machina to save the Republicans from themselves: More than half of the respondents to last week’s AP-GFK survey said the President should be voted out next November. Nonetheless, he [...]

DEBATE VIDEO: ROMNEY & GINGRICH DEFEND THEIR SUPPORT OF INSURANCE MANDATES

In tonight’s GOP debate, Perry called out Mitt and Newt on their support for insurance mandates. Romney defended his position based on the 10th Amendment and Newt defended his support on the fact that many conservatives proposed it in the 1990′s as an alternative to HillaryCare: [ht Breitbart]

END-OF-LIFE SAVINGS FOOL’S GOLD?

A couple of weeks ago, in the American Spectator, I gigged Newt Gingrich for parroting a tired progressive talking point: In 2009, he wrote another Washington Post column in which he echoed a refrain often heard from people who believe we should ration care to the elderly: ‘More than 20 percent of all Medicare spending occurs in [...]

NEWT: HEALTH CARE SHOULD BE DELIVERED ‘WITHIN A FRAMEWORK SET BY GOVERNMENT’

More evidence that Newt Gingrich has been on the wrong side of every aspect of the health care debate. In this video, from a discussion with congressional staffers in 2003, he compares the government’s role in health care to that which it played in building the interstate highway system … sigh.
