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:

CHARACTER MATTERS AND ROMNEY’S WORRIES ME

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:

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/29/us/politics/the-calculations-that-led-romney-to-the-warpath.html?pagewanted=all?

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.

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    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.

    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

  • 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

  • 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.

    #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.

  • 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.

  • NVA Patriot

    Mitt is burning down the conservative house and expects to win in November? Who is passionately going to support this? Bain is coming folks, and asking for BHO, the media, and the Dem party to stand down because it hurts too much is a pipe dream. John McCain and Bob Dole used that approach – not recalling any great moments in those Presidencies.

    Romney is going to be at the top of the tickect in VA. George Allen will be the likely Senate nominee. With any other candidate at the top of the ticket, VA could overcome Mr. Macaca and get him across the line. With Mitt at the top, the combined problems of Allen and Romney will likely put VA in play for the dems.

    Team Romney is looking to take out Allen West through re-districting. This is the conservative future if Mitt’s people win. Mitt is a self professed progressive and his surrogates have said they will not repeal Obamacare, but Bondi said they will try…

    Our best chance to defeat this progressive freight train engineered by Romney is to defeat it in Florida. If we do, then we deny them the “momentum” story they need to attempt to silence the rest of the candidates and critics. Defeating them in FL forces the Mitt-stablishment to come to conservatives. If they win – what is happening to Allen West will be repeated endlessly until there’s nothing left.

    Please ask your friends in FL to help defeat Mitt. Newt is far from perfect, but he’s the only leader living who has actually cut government. Isn’t that what we need?

  • Sasja

    You know what is going on, don’t you. The lib dims and the RINO’s are not so far apart politically and both groups love having the money=power=control. I think the dims would prefer to have Zero as president, but if not, the next best thing is Mittens. So the progressive agenda can go forward with little opposition.

    And don’t count on the newbies who were voted in 2010 and those who may make it this year. When they show up for their first day, they are instructed on the way things are done in those august bodies known as the House and Senate, and if they want committee assignments, or whatever, they’ll tow the line.

    It’s politics.

  • NVA Patriot

    Patty – George Soros himself has said there’s no difference between Romney and Obama. If it’s Mitt, it’s better that a Dem and Obama get the blame rather than a Noxonesque Republican.

    Mark Levin defends Newt Gingrich

    [“So what’s going on here?” Levin said. “I’ll tell you what’s going on here. There’s an effort to clear the path right now for Romney. I guarantee you if Santorum was considered a threat, they’d be pulling out quotes from him and twisting them and turning them, and turning him into a pretzel, too. If they thought Ron Paul was a threat … they’d be turning him into a pretzel, too. Romney pulled the same thing with Fred Thompson. He pulled the same thing with Rudy Giuliani. Ladies and gentlemen, if you are conservative, if you are tea party activists, you’ve got to step back and say, ‘What the hell is going on here?’ All these commercials aimed at destroying opponents, not in communicating facts, not in advancing our principles, not focused on Obama, who’s the problem, but turning people into monsters.”]

    Now Mark Levin has been drinking Drano? What a shame. I love (d) Levin. Its one of the only shows I always listen too.

    With Gingrich’s attacks on capitalism and sounding like Obama, and his love of all things progressive, including gun control and Utopian concepts (ironic since Levin used to insult Gingrich as a meglomaniac mastermind.. which he is.), I cannot believe Levin loves him now.

    His new book was written about people just like Gingrich. He’s got plans.. plans for all of us. Plans that change every day. “A moon colony!” “People pods on the ocean floor!”

    Levin what in GODS NAME’s drugs have you been taking?

    PS – to the above person who said they wouldn’t vote for Romney if nominated.. I’ve got a message for you. If Obama is elected again, it will BE YOUR FAULT. I will blame all misfortunes on you and people like you. If our country collapses, I hope one day that all traitors get their just desserts. You might not like Romney, but you’d rather have Obama just because you have a chip on your shoulder? Obama is like Stalin, to Romney being Bush. Quite a difference. Would you rather have your children have no future? well thats a given with Obama. I dare any teenagers to find a job in the future under Obama.. much less a career

  • Old Fan

    Mark Levin is a Conservative leader?

    Are you being sarcastic Mr. Hoft?

    Mark Levin recently pushed for a failure in Delaware. It was suicidal, not Conservative. Ego has made a mess of Mr. Levin. In the process, Mark Levin slandered the fine author from Powerline, Mr. Mirengoff. Who was right? Mr. Mirengoff of course.

    The episode proved Mark Levin will say anything, no matter how dishonest, manipulating the expression of others. It was a sad chapter in sideline opinion battles, which only ruined Levin’s reputation.

    It is stunning to see Mr. Hoft follow this nonsense right off a cliff. So, Gingrich can spend weeks using leftist “looting” nonsense which mimic Barack Obama attacking Mr. Romney’s successful Private Enterprise, and Levin is upset when someone points out Gingrich’s horrid record?

    It is a joke. It is embarrassing. Those following this nonsense are ruining their reputations.

    Gingrich cannot even be honest about his support for Rockefeller:
    “Gingrich: I supported Rockefeller over Goldwater”

    Gingrich is also such a dreadful candidate, he would only give the Democratic Partisans a big gift in 2012:
    “A Gingrich nomination, however, would be “a nightmare for Republicans” by turning many purple states blue and giving Obama a starting point of 303 Electoral Votes, 33 more than needed.”

    Heh. Mitt Romney is not only a liar, he’s clumsy, and it shows. Nobody would be upset about legitimate criticism for Newt Gingrich, especially Newt Gingrich.

    But lying is a whole ‘nother matter. It’s easy to see here in this thread that people who support Romney are relying on those lies, which have been rebutted at this site, time and time, again.

    This is not new, for Romney. He did the same thing in the run-up to the 2008 election, lying about his opponents. There are people who still hate Mike Huckabee and John McCain over this.

    So, what’s the outcome? Well, we can look to the Washington Post, which is of course following events from the point of view of Obama supporters.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/obama-team-sees-romney-damaging-self-with-independents-for-fall-campaign/2012/01/25/gIQAo8caRQ_story.html

    “What has happened to Romney over the past month has not come as a total surprise to Obama’s advisers. Having long ago combed his record as a businessman and cast his profile against the general mood of the country, they thought he was a candidate with major weaknesses that could make it difficult for him to appeal to independent and swing voters.”

    “What Obama’s advisers say they did not anticipate was the degree to which Romney would compound that vulnerability through missteps.”

    “At the heart of those perceptions is Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital, …”

    “These are all self-inflicted,” said one adviser to the president who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the campaign candidly. “He has done as much damage to himself with how he’s handled this as anything his opponents have said about him. That’s why I think he’s made it worse.”

    “A new Washington Post-ABC News poll highlights the damage Romney has sustained. By a margin of more than 2 to 1, independent voters have an unfavorable impression of the former governor. Two weeks ago, more independents had a favorable opinion of him than an unfavorable view. In contrast, 51 percent of independents have a favorable impression of the president, compared with 45 percent who have an unfavorable view — his highest rating since April.”

    Both President Obama and Mitt Romney understand we must be able to clamp down on the middle class. The moment they understand they’ve been sold into slavery, the Tea Party is almost certain to embrace open rebellion.

    Society cannot allow this to happen. Order must be retained; stability ensured. Mitt promises to bring the security of the Great American Gated Community into place should President Obama lose his office. Government control of health care, food supplies, and major sectors of the economy are key to ensuring there is no threat to the elites when the realization of the Great Swindle occurs.

    In the words of the wise George Soros, both Romney and Obama will do. There’s nothing really different between either when it comes to protecting the elites.

    The GOP has been split ideologically for a good while now, it just doesn’t get expressed by voter turnout often.
    But, I would submit that there are more than 2 parts to the split; there are likely at least 4:
    a.) moderate-left so-called fiscal conservatives (or perhaps pro strong defense) but liberal on almost everything else.
    b.) moderate, so-called fiscal conservatives, but indifferent if not somewhat averse to social conservatism
    c.) right, but not to the point of being unwilling to compromise.
    d.) far right, who are fiscally and socially traditional (not conservative in the sense of simply maintaining status quo, but would rather embrace many of the qualities that make up our heritage.

    I identify with d. I am usually labeled far right. I am not as traditional as my grandparents were. I didn’t move to the right a great deal (ok, following adulthood, maybe a bit), at least not nearly to the extent that the country moved far to the left.

    a and b have wanted to either be rid of c and d for a long time, or have them shut up and enjoy the ride. Problem for c is their candidate is a bridge too far for d.

  • Multitude

    Ausonius/44: Your analysis is definitely beneficial. I’d suggest you are perhaps missing a major category with respect to socially conservative but fiscally liberal.

    At least from the context of being in your (a) category, I feel you’d need to represent this (e) and would suggest that Santorum fits there and Romney pretends to be there to buy votes (though he’s a fiscal and social liberal at heart).

    There is a modest population of post-Libertarians who embrace aspects of Austrian economics, would love Robert Nozick’s minimal state, value a government that simply has no role in social issues, but is realist/constructivist about the reality that there are simply really bad people out there that have to be dealt with. Ron Paul’s foreign policy is so naive it’s a disaster. Even economically, there are no neutral spaces; one either has a positive (Foucaultian constructive concept of positive) influence to open spaces for economic participation or others will eat your lunch. China doesn’t play nice, nor does much of the world. Worse yet, they have no respect for idealistic fools.

    There’s no Republican candidate for us. Obama’s a disaster but so are these social reactionaries/fiscal liberals. Anyway, you might add this perspective to your model.

    Romney increased “fees”, “fines” and “Taxes” more then any governor in history; and you think he wont do the same on the national level?

    Romney is the first Governor to implement Cap&Tax, bragging about forcing 6 power-plants to comply. You don’t think he will do it on a national level?

    Romney single single-handedly went against the state constitution to become the first state to allow gay marriage, while the Dems pointed out it was an unconstitutional court ruling Romney was citing. You don’t think he will do it nationally?

    Romney is the first of endless Democrats to implement what is now called Romneycare, and has had multiple people in his campaign talking about “fixing it” (not repealing it). You really think its going anywhere?

    Romney is the “Republican” (said lightly) who appointed 3/4 Liberal or Activist-Independent judges to the state benches; bragging he was looking for “diversity” and “paid no attention to political leanings”. You think he will be any different if President?

    I could go on and on, but its pointless – Romney is the most liberal Governor the state has seen in 50 years, passing more Extreme Liberal agenda pieces then anyone else. If you really think he will do otherwise in the WH, then your Obama derangement has got the best of you and led you right into the hands of the Devil.

    Romney is left of Obama in everything but the words he needs to say to get himself elected…

He comes up with a meglomaniacal plan for ‘something’ every 2 weeks. Did you read Coulter last column? Newt doodled drawings of him as the lord of the universe, and ‘the law giver’..

    uhhh? Is that someone you want as President? I’ll vote for him if he gets the nomination, but I don’t think he can beat Obama. Everyone thinks he’ll wipe the floor in a debate. Yes, he will. But OBAMA will control the debate schedule. If he’s scared, he won’t debate him… and the media will make excuses for him.

    I’m for the defeat of Obama under all circumstances. If he’s reelected, all conservatives who voted against the nominee should be run out of the country. And when Obama collapses the country, I for one, will be the first volunteer for the army of liberation. He’s destroyed my city in 3 years. At one point, near every single male was unemployed at an instant. 6 months into his dictatorship. I’ve never seen anything like it.

    The media needs to be run out of town and replaced. You crazy idiots listening to Cain now run around with ColBERT making a fool of himself are going to run us off a cliff.. and Sarah? An Obama win will ensure you can whine on facebook some more

    @ Ella, well said.

    There’s no way I can vote for Romney, even in the general. He’s shown he’s duplicitous, venal, craven, he’s repudiated Reagan, violated Reagan’s 11th commandment, attacked conservatives in the most sleaziest fashion possible. Worse than that, he and his minions like Norm Coleman have refused to commit to ending ObamaCare.

    I’ll vote for Newt.
    I’ll vote for Santorum.
    I’ll vote for Ron Paul, despite his isolationism.

    Romney will never get my vote. His venality along with the Republican Establishment are everything that is wrong with Washington and a Romney presidency will lead to the end of the Republican Party which is exactly where it was heading after 2006 & 2008 until the Tea Party and even Ron Paul’s libertarian wing saved it.

  • Its really plain and simple. Romney is pro-capitalism. Newt attacks it.

    Now, pick.

    There’s nothing left to say.

  • squeaky

    “My fear Obama will eat Mitt for dinner. He will say that Romney is a Capitalist..” bones and all. supposedly he didn’t do too well with his interview with brett baier to the point of complaining after the fact about the questioning. 2012 will be a “go for the throat” election and the rumblings i hear from the blue sidlines is blaming the congress for nothing getting done and holding obama back…if you listen to people this only started with the november 2010 election which would lead one to believe that the previous pelosi led congress didn’t exist [which was in power from 07′ thru 10′]. i always question just which congress they’re talking about and find the focus on the current members.

  • Who has the cleanest, most consistently Constitutional voting record, without all the liberal baggage? Who hasn’t cheated on his wife, supported socialized medicine or voted to raise the debt limit 5 times? Who has never voted for an unbalanced budget or a congressional pay raise or voted against the peoples’ right to self defense? Who has actually laid out a plan to cut federal spending in real terms and balance the budget in his first term?
    The one and only standing conservative candidate that can beat Obama without being a hypocrite is, Ron Paul.
    There is only one big problem. The establishment insiders that chose John McCain and Barack Obama in 2008 do not care if Obama faces anyone on the Republican ballot as long as it is NOT – Congressman Ron Paul. Those who know the insides of the US political machines will tell you that if they were honest but any reasonable observer can see the bias against Paul, not for any real reason except that he stands squarely on the Constitution. That cannot be allowed in a President of the US. Reagan was the last President that gave more than lip service to our Constitution and look what happened to him on March 30th, 1981.
    Ron Paul is the authentic Ron Reagan of this election! He has with his votes in Congress , “vetoed” more unconstitutional bills than any other elected official in history.
    It is now time to grow up and elect a proven and consistent leader to save this republic while there is still time! Ron Paul is the man to do just that!
    Nothing will change with any other! Ignorant and free can never be! Do your own research! Put a high value on your vote in your state’s primary! Do not compromise your liberties or those of your countrymen! Remember, the first Veterans were the founders! Paul is the only veteran running! Veterans, not military-industrial complex talking heads support Paul over all others! Support the Constitution and Dr. Paul before we have neither!

    Every single charge by Gingrich supporters that is levied at Romney can be equally applied to Gingrich. I’m not saying I necessarily disagree with those charges against Romney. I’m just saying folks looking for the “true conservative in the race” are being hoodwinked to support Gingrich. He’s a Republican member of the Party of DC. He’s cozied up to liberals and liberal idealogy whenever he thinks it suits him. His primary goal is consolidating power in Washington. Under him. True conservatism treats that whole “state’s rights” thing as a pretty important point.

    Anderson Cooper Buries Gingrich’s Vindication
    of Charges by IRS at End of Critical Story

    December 20, 2011

    Thomas Sowell

    [While the televised debates are what gave Newt Gingrich’s candidacy
    a big boost, concrete accomplishments when in office are the real test.
    Gingrich engineered the first Republican takeover of the House of
    Representatives in 40 years — followed by the first balanced budget
    in 40 years.
    The media called it “the Clinton surplus” but all spending
    bills start in the House of Representatives, and Gingrich was Speaker
    of the House.

    Speaker Gingrich​ also produced some long overdue welfare reforms,
    despite howls from liberals that the poor would be devastated. But
    nobody makes that claim any more.]

    Newt-Goldwater 1976

    [Long before there was a mighty Republican machine running Georgia,
    there was a handful of brash conservatives plotting to lift their tiny,
    financially struggling party so they could end more than a century of
    Democratic dominance.

    Among the chief architects was Newt Gingrich, a West Georgia College
    assistant professor who ran for Congress three times in a blue-collar
    district – twice against an entrenched Talmadge Democratic incumbent
    – before finally winning.

    Gingrich, now a presidential hopeful, traveled West and North Georgia
    during the 1970s and ’80s, preaching the Republican gospel and arguing
    that the GOP had to choose between remaining a silent, permanent
    minority or aggressively taking the fight to Democrats.

    He chose confrontation and played the role of
    provocateur, unwilling to accept second place….

    U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Savannah, calls Gingrich an “indispensable early trailblazer” for Georgia Republicans. Kingston remembers his college days, when Gingrich came to the University of Georgia to recruit students to get involved in GOP politics.]

    Interview conducted Spring 2001

    Newt Gingrich

    [NEWT GINGRICH: It was personally painful in the sense that you hated to be demonized, but you have to make a decision early on: Are you in the business to achieve change, or are you in the business to be popular? I thought my job was to be the executor of the American people’s will on very specific things — balance the budget, cut taxes, reform welfare, strengthen defense, modernize the House of Representatives.]

    It may be time to reboot the Republican party.

    You’re right, you are simple. I hate people’s who have thought processes that can be found on bumper stickers. I bet you voted for “Hope and Change” in the last election.

    That simple.

  • Molon Labe

    When you read the moby and Romney troll comments here you can see how right Levin is.

    If a case can be made for Romney I’d like to see it. There is nothing positive that can be said for Romney. Have you seen one comment that boasted of a Romney achievement while he was gov? Just one?

  • burt

    There is no difference between Democrat or Republican. It’s 2008 all over again. McCain’s best campaign speech was before the NAACP, he was campaigning for Obama.

  • Billy

    Romney is a liberal socialist.
