Conservative Leader Mark Levin: I Am Appalled at Mitt’s “Anything Goes Assault on Gingrich”

Conservative leader Mark Levin said he’s appalled at Mitt Romney’s “anything goes assault on Gingrich.” Levin says Romney’s attacks on the more conservative Republican nominees will make it difficult for him to unite the party if he wins the nomination.
From Mark Levin’s Facebook page, via Free Republic:


I am beginning to think that the nature and level of attacks being launched by Mitt Romney against Newt Gingrich, which he would surely use against any conservative threatening his nomination, are going to make it very difficult for Romney to unite the different factions of the GOP and the conservative movement behind his candidacy should he win the nomination. While I have said that I would vote for Rick Santorum, I am appalled at the “anything goes” assault on Gingrich. See here:

Romney is not a conservative in the traditional sense, and he has a record of big-government Republicanism. Even many years after the success of the Reagan administration, he sought to distance himself from Reagan and the GOP, self-identifying as a progressive and independent. Thus, he resorts to spending multi-millions of dollars trashing his opponents, rather than providing thoughtful arguments on conservatism and constitutionalism. Lest we forget, it was Gingrich who was trying to run a positive campaign and who offered to debate Romney one-on-one, asking Romney to stop with the millions in unanswered ads attacking him. Romney declined. I have no doubt that Romney would do the same thing to Santorum if Santorum was rising in the polls, albeit on different issues.

I have said that Romney is in many ways Richard Nixon, and that Romney would not successfully lead efforts to repeal Obamacare but, in fact, would grow the federal government in many respects. Romney’s advisor, former senator Norm Coleman, has now said as much. That is Romney’s record. Despite having been a businessman, he was not a defender of free market capitalism while governor. Romneycare is, as Santorum pointed out, a top-down government health care system with an individual mandate that is breaking Massachusetts’ treasury and destroying private health insurance. It is a disaster. Romney also backed cap-and-trade and TARP (as did Gingrich).

My great fear is, however, that he is the weakest candidate who can face Obama and will go into the general election with a fractured base, thanks to his own character flaws, which are now on display, and his tactics of personal destruction.

    If Romney gets the nomination I refuse to vote. The guy is the literal definition of RINO, and is trying to sleaze his way to the whitehouse.

    It’s what Obama did. And if you think Romney will repeal the ACA I got this bridge I’d like to sell you

  • Pete_Bondurant

    Anything goes assault on Gingrich? Is Levin for real? What about the constant barrage of attacks from the left by Gingrich on Romney? The class warfare attacks, the tax attacks, the anti-immigration attacks, oh yeah, they don’t count. Gingrich can do and say anything he wants.

    When Romney “attacks” he atttacks from the right as opposed to Gingrich who saounds more and more like Obama everyday. Today Gingrich was whining about Wall St money aiding Romney.

    Levin has his panties in a wad.

    Mitt Romney thinks he can conduct a scorched earth war against his opponents then call for all factions to unite under his leadership and vote for him? I’m sitting this election out. So what if Obama wins another term. Mitt isn’t going to do anything to repeal Obamacare nor turn this ship around so we can dig ourselves out of the hole we’re in. Mitt’s a RINO which means he simply hasn’t got the balls. Let the economic crash come on Obama’s watch.

    I’m appalled that Levin and Palin support the Freddie Mac historian. If you’re not going to draw the line at the promotion of sub prime government backed (socialist) mortgages, where do you draw the line. These people are over the moon.

    “If Romney gets the nomination I refuse to vote. The guy is the literal definition of RINO, and is trying to sleaze his way to the whitehouse.”

    You must be an Obama voter.

  • exceller

    Barmitt Obamney, it will be an utter disaster if this guy gets the nomination. The Republican party as we know it will be over.

    #3 Eloquent.

    A plus is that the GOP/Rino/elitists/govt tit suckers will be destroyed with Romney’s defeat. Gee, remember the Whig party that ignored its base. I dont remember them.

    A negative is that the country may not survive term 2 Barky.

    RNC: POS

  • Opaobie

    Once again the RINOs are about to orchestrate a disaster by destroying Conservatives early and then leaving the last RINO standing so badly battered that the entire campaign in the general election will have to be conducted from political ICU.

    Now John “Rodney King — Can’t we all just get along –” McCain is asking that Newt and Mitt stop tearing each other apart and start attacking Obama. Maybe if McCain had taken his own advice, Obama would have been a footnote in American history instead of a boot on the neck of America.

  • Militant Conservative

    Wow, two excrement birds this early in a thread.

    Must be democrat sleaze night.

    Obama is the target, the weapon has yet to be

    chosen. Romney is not IT.

    Powder is dry

  • Sasja

    Romney has his minions stalking Newt, showing up at Newt’s rallies. The way I feel today, Romney wins the nomination, he’ll not get my vote. I’ll show up in November and vote for our reps, but the presidential box will be left blank. I cannot, in all conscience, vote for a devil whatever political letter is next to his name.

    Listened to a local talk show host here in St. Louis bemoaning the attacks against Romney as he apparently has conceded the nomination to Romney. His view was that Gingrich is weakening him with all the negative ads. My thought was, do you really think this is anything compared to the attacks that will be against Romney by Obama? The last election they destroyed John McCain by making the whole campaign about his selection of a Governor of Alaska who had over an 80% approval rate in her home state!

    Does anyone doubt the stoking of the fire of the Occupy Wall Street protests wasn’t laying the groundwork for the run against Romney?

    While business that was engaged by Bain Capital may have been legal do you think there may be some dealing that would be considered immoral by a lot of individuals? Look how the Hedge Funds were demonized and badgered into taking far less that they would have got from the Bankruptcy Courts had it not been for the Obama Administration.

    Does this mean that I think Gingrich is an ideal candidate, indeed I don’t Perhaps that man was Herman Cain but like Newt I think his demise came from the Romney campaign.

    I am troubled how Romney distances himself from his campaign. Reminds me as a LOT of Barack Obama who lets his chosen ones like Sebelius, Holder, Napolitano, and others to do the damage all the while acting like an innocent bystander.

    If Romney gets the nomination I will once again hold my nose just like I did for McCain. Sarah Palin made it to where I didn’t have to hold so tight. I don’t believe that the VP nominee will be as conservative as Palin.

    My prayer is that Romney will fool me and reverse Obamacare, etc. but my gut tells me he will only manage the decline.

  • Jd

    Most seem to agree with me. Guess we are all Obama supporters, eh?

  • imcss90

    I think that anyone who states they are not going to vote if “such and such wins or doesn’t win” they must be an obama supporter or an idiot because all they are doing is giving obama 4 more years to finish off the country.

  • Patty

    My fear Obama will eat Mitt for dinner. He will say that Romney is a Capitalist who has profited off the little people. And then there is Romney care.

    Pro Choice
    Pro Gun Ban
    Pro universal health care

    One is as bad as the other.

  • Sasja

    #13. I have always chastised folks who say they are not going to vote if so and so gets the nomination. I said the way I feel today.

    However, unless someone can prove to me that voting for Mittens, should he be the candidate, will make the slightest difference and reverse the course our country has taken, then I will vote for him.

    That is funny, said I MAY not vote if Mitt is the one. But I will, I know it is giving a vote to Obama. Since Romney came into play for a second time, loser the first, I don’t understand how he can become a nominee, Americans are fickle.

  • Patty


    Same but I do hate throwing my vote away. You feel like you can say much when you don’t vote.

    I feel your pain and I hear you. Romney is a has been and leftover and now he is going to defeat Obama. They are one in the same.

  • Liz

    Big phony. Gingrich is the one howling that Romney is a blood sucking capitalist and a full blown liar. The guy is a drama king.

  • Liz

    Not to mention, he’s always in debt. No big spenders this cycle.

  • Patty

    Funny, sounds like we are given up on Gingrich already. I don’t like being told who we elect.
    Actually, I hate it. Our voting process stinks on ice. I wish it was one day every state sort of thing I would feel much better. Naive but that would be great in my opinion.
