The Politico reported:

Former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) on Sunday attacked Mitt Romney for “unseemliness and overkill” in his aggressive campaign against Newt Gingrich, the candidate Thompson has endorsed.

Romney’s “modus operandi, basically, is to play Mr. Nice Guy until somebody gets close to him,” Thompson said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “And then he unleashes his attack machine. And that’s what happened in Iowa and it’s what’s happening in Florida.”

Thompson said that a story in Sunday’s New York Times depicts “Romney’s staff … patting themselves on the back, talking about how mean and down they are. How they’ve got Matt Drudge in their back pocket. And how Romney is in on all of it.”

    Go ahead, make my day.

    The more Mitt attacks the more Newt wins.

    Stand by for attacks on Thompson for having a “trophy” bride and for selling reverse mortgages and getting old folks tossed out of their homes just to make a buck. Alinsky tactics are not just for the candidate, they are also for anyone who tosses him a lifeline.

  • ClinkinKY

    Hey, did you see that?. Matt Drudge just jumped over a shark on his surfboard?

  • No Man

    You hit a 10X pinwheel with that, MC.

    In the interests of fair and accurate reporting: Thompson did NOT make this charge directly. He said that Romney’s team bragged about Drudge being “in their back pocket.”

    Please don’t stoop to Maureen Dowd-like quoting technique.

    Juan McCaint sitting next to Fred.

    Romney is acting like he won’t need the Tea Party vote in November. We can certainly accommodate that.

  • Nanna

    Mitt Romney as brought a new low to the Republican party. I have never seen anything like this in my life.
    He is so dirty, and throat cutting. He is too much like a leftie democrat for my taste.

  • Ariel

    Yeah, kinda figured Drudge was compromised after his site deluged us with a torrent of anti-Gingrich articles after Newt won South Carolina. Some even remarked at the unusual circumstance of so many hit pieces coming out at the same time and ending up foremost among The Drudge Report’s headline articles. It was almost as if the attacks were coordinated by some unseen, nefarious group (eg. the Romney campaign) Nah! Nothing to see here folks, just move along!

  • LYNNDH

    Ella, speak for yourself. Anybody but BO (except of course Paul).

  • ClinkinKY

    Anyone else noticed that Matt Drudge/Drudge Report doesn’t have a Twitter account? What do they say, “he can dish it out, but he can’t take it”?. What a coward.

  • jainphx

    Wait he did say it though didn’t he? What matters whether he said he knew it or Romneys operatives said it, if not true he’s open for a suit. Romney is an evil man with no morals what so ever. Lie, cheat, steal, bare false witness, it doesn’t matter as long as he gets the power that he wants and needs. We are screwed with Mitt.

  • Jeremy Cannone

    If Mitt becomes the GOP nominee, he better find a way to get me to vote for him. What he and the GOP establishment are doing is despicable! I’m no fan of Newt either, but Mitt has taken this way to far, and I’ll write somebody else in if he is the nominee. I am so disgusted by Mitt and his teams actions.

    What about Huckabee (I’m running because I’m anti-Mormon!) and McCain when they gamed the primaries against Romney in 2008? Even George W. Bush in the 2000 election in South Carolina? Hello! Welcome to the primaries. This is nothing new.

    Did you guys miss where Drudge had good headlines last week when Gingrich won South Carolina?

    Mitt may have drudge but he just shows truth via links. If Newt wins he will need thicker skin when they really find who is in the back pocket of Obama and they don’t just point to links they lie.

    The state media aka the whole MSM will not follow the ideology of the new leader of the state. They will work overtime to destroy him. If Newt can not handle the simple Drudge links he does not deserves anything.

  • Kaitian

    “I am so disgusted by Mitt and his teams actions.”

    What about the anti-capitalist / OWS attitude by Gingrich? Are you suggesting that Gingrich is right on being anti-capitalism?

  • Militant Conservative

    Negative ads work, when your running against

    a democrat/republican in the general.

    Doing negative ads against someone in your own

    Party. Shows what a class act the attacker is.

    yup, Mitts going to need TEA partiers to get the

    nomination. Where I’m sitting, he’s pissing in the

    Wind, and trying to tell us it’s raining. LOL

    Trust that GOD still favors America.

    Obama is an evil we HAD to endure.

    Romney is despicable in all of this; he so lusts for the power of the presidency. Perhaps it’s shades of Joseph Smith himself.

    So you’re saying Drudge should have 100% political news all the time? Drudge links anything to his liking that is outside the realms of politics.

    What proof do you have of this? We have an anti-business climate & anti-energy president that constantly undermines our national security so he can benefit the few people ala George Soros, Warren Buffet, GE, etc. He likes to play Winners & Losers game vs Romney’s business attitude of growing the economy.

    Yes, you’re right. Romney is going to push the same agenda regarding energy, climate changes, national security (No American Exceptionalism), etc.

    Might as well not vote, right? That’s what you’re going to do in November?

    We have seen videos of him saying he will fight to keep abortion legal. HE Stated that parental notification is wrong, but an under age girl could get a Judges permission.
    We have seen videos of him railing against gun laws, we have seen him appoint judges that were openly homosexual. We have seen him argue to the left of Ted Kennedy. We have witnessed him spend 16 million in attack adds against Newt, millions more against Santorum, Perry, Palin, Cain. Where do you think the money came from to tar Cain an adulterer. The man is vile and will turn on us at the drop of a hat. Can anyone show me the difference between Obama and Romney.

    So what? Matt Drudge isn’t allowed to have an opinion nor express one?

    jainphx, what to talk about how Gingrich appointed Duke Cunningham to a tony committee, KNOWING Cunningham was as crooked as a dog’s hind leg?

    Gingrich wants to claim credit for everything the Republican Congress did, but not for supporting Cunningham. When it is to his credit, he uses the term “I”, but when it comes to Cunningham, he used the term “we” as in:

    “WE tolerated corruption in a way that was totally unacceptable to our base.”

    Gingrich is as big a fraud as Romney.

  • Jeremy Cannone

    Kaitan, the point I’m trying to make here is that I am sick and tired of the elites from the GOP establishment basically picking the republican nominee, and telling me how I should vote. Once again, I am no supporter of Newt, however, the establishment is picking Mitt (just look at their viscous attacks on Newt, and you will see that it’s quite obvious), then that’s who I don’t want. I will not sell out. If he becomes our nominee, he will have a ton of work to do to get my respect, and vote for him (Same goes for Newt).

  • Kaitian

    Abortion. Great, the issue is now back? Roe vs Wade will never ever go away unless it is forbidden through a constitutional amendment. What are the chances of that happening? Pretty damn low. The fact is my wife and I are against federal fundings of abortion which is one thing but to outlaw the practice is political suicide. Social Conservatives are outnumbered out there by conservatives and liberals. It’s no different from gun control where liberals are outnumbered by all conservatives in general & pro-gun liberals.

    Now as for the homosexual issue which jainphx takes offense to, he might as well start advocating for GOProud to be banned from the Republican Party and to start doing cardcheck to make sure that none of our members are homosexual at all. My wife and I have 1 gay cousin each and we rather they support the Republicans over the Democrats but the party in general thanks to the Social Conservatives seems to want to keep them out at all cost. Maybe it’s a Baptist thing where they should all burn in holy damnation or something.

    The last thing is the fact that there are 4 million Puerto Ricans on the small island and the attitude of the Republican Party in regards to them is disgusting. They are 100% American just as you and I are and they are closer to our hemisphere of politics than the democrats. You know who opposes Puerto Rican Statehood? The Democrats do and they’re very fearful of the fact that Puerto Rico would give 2 R Senators & at least 5 Republican Representatives.

  • billy sol

    when you are a republican running in a two cadidate race today you have two opponants, the democrat opponant candidate, the the wing nut media. thoses of you that back Newt see him destroying obummer in debates . . . .. in how many debates do you believe that barry will agree to participate? about halif of the electorate will be watching Family Guy, or Mike & Molly. the MSM will declare the charaltan in chief as the winner, and the 50% tat were watching M&M will agree with the Keith Olberman’s of the worly. I agree with most of you that see Newt as articulate, and intelligent . . . .but if he’s the candidate do you believe that issues will be the libtards focus? The key issue here is who can boot Ocommie from the white house . . . ..and Claire Mcnumbskull back to Kirkwood!!!!

  • Carbon Pootprint

    Romney and Newt are both progressive douche bags.
    Take it to convention and draft Tom Coburn bahahahha

  • jainphx

    Look! I know you are slow on the understanding, but let me try this one last time. Romney and the establishment ran Palin out of the running, who, was our best bet. Now Newt isn’t an angel, we all now that, but Romney is an evil man. How do you hold a liberal agenda when running for the senate, and then Governor. Then after winning the governorship, governed as a liberal. We have videos of him saying so.

    Newt is our fire wall to keep the scum from being anointed by the powers that want the status quo. He is a liar what more do you need. The difference between Newt and Romney is night and day, newt 95% conservative Romney ZERO. Do you understand? Do I wish someone else was positioned to stop Romney? You betcha.

  • saveus

    Newt is hardly an angel with his personal scandals, ethical shortcomings, palling with Pelosi, dissing the Ryan plan,taking $$% as a lobbyist from Fannie, trashing capitalism and believing in global warming

    What will the media, obumma and the pacs to do him if he is the candidate?

  • Kaitian

    No, Michelle Bachmann ran Palin out of the running. They were both in the same group and Bachmann knew if Palin jumped in, there was no point for her to do so.

  • Kaitian

    And seriously. Do you see Palin having any chance to knock over Obama? The public has higher negativity towards Palin than they do towards Gingrich or Romney or any of the former candidates.

    But I see where you’re getting your ideas from. From Palin herself, right?

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    Why can’t John McCain just go away? Every damn time you turn around, he’s sitting in front of some camera pontificating about this or that. He campaigned to be the Republican Party nominee and they nominated him but, truth be told, he just plain didn’t have the fight in his belly to win. He handed the White House to the Kenyan Fraud and new we’re in deep deep shiite and the guy is STILL around. Go away John! Haven’t you screwed us all over enough already?

    Wow you really ignored me for such a long time, and then put words in my mouth. Turn around snake and check your rattle, your only here to support Romney, because you want him to run against your true man Obama. He’s also a snake.

  • Margaret

    I am just stunned and horrified at Mitt Romney’s “politics of personal destruction” against Gingrich and now we can see who would have been so low as to have spewed degrading lies about Sarah Palin in 2008 and Rick Santorum’s wife now. When George Soros says there is no difference between Obama and Romney, you know he is speaking the truth, and he should know.

    Romney shouldn’t be able to get away with such evil and vile acts against fellow Republicans. I am sure he won’t attack Obama with anything like this degree of attack. Fellow tea party members, beware of this mean and nasty character, who will sell his soul just to win!

  • SoldiersMom

    I didn’t want McCain to be the ’08 nominee, but I voted for him. I’ll do the same for Romney this year, though I hope he’s not the nominee. The GOP and the left were all cheerleading for a McCain nomination in ’08. Looks like it will be a redux this year. Republican voters will fall in line and put Romney at the top. Romney will roll over in the General. Just like McCain.

  • jainphx

    Margaret===== More and more people are finding that out, I just hope it’s not too late. You can always tell how close things are when all the blogs are over run by vile Romney people, who are actually for Obama.

  • Kaitian

    ABO sentiment is high but do you think we’re better off running a candidate like Sarah Palin or Santorum (I need to know what you’re doing in the bedroom)? Tomorrow will be another day and you guys are going to be crybabies constantly everyday clinging onto past crap about one person while ignoring the other person full of controversy too. IE Gingrich was never a friend of Ronald Reagan yet he proclaims to be so even though the expert of Ronald Reagan’s work says Gingrich is full of crap.

  • Sasja

    Well, rather than have to vote for the devil you know, or the devil you don’t know. Now it’s vote for the devil you know…Romney or Zero.

  • jainphx

    Still hasn’t answered the question, all these snakes know is attack, vicious attack.

  • Kaitian

    Like you jainphx? It’s ironic where you have the world Jain in your username but do nothing to be an example of it.

  • Patty

    This is that shining moment of disgrace. Romney in the debates was livid with Gingrich’s attack on him investing in Fannie and Freddie. Romney made it clear that his money was in Blind Trust. He has investors who do the investing. Really?

    Blind Trust sounds so devious but I digress, Romney has a very mean streak and Gingrich has been feeling the affects of ad after ad attacking him. Those who have stood up for Gingrich are Cain, Palin, Perry, Thompson, Tea Party and Giuliani.

    It was repeated over and over after Gingrich win in S.C. that Romney shouldn’t hold back and start attacking seems he read the memo.

  • Patty

    I have said that you should never waste your vote. But when push comes to shove. I may not vote. That is awful not to vote but this nation is in trouble with Romney or Obama.

  • Kaitian

    Tell that to Santorum and the rest of the Social Conservatives. They’re the ones that passed crap like the anti-sodomy laws in Texas making sure you’re not doing sodomy with your wife. Hell, Huckabee, another social conservative, wants to make sure you’re eating right in your own home and to regulate your lifestyle. Why is it that Social Conservatives want to regulate your lifestyle while fiscal conservatives, libertarian conservatives, etc don’t?

  • jainphx

    Now you show your ignorance by assuming things, why do you snakes assume, just live your life and let the rest of us alone. I would explain my nic, but you ain’t worth the trouble Snake. Turn in your computer time card to Obama, and get your filthy money.

  • Kaitian

    Patty, you’re right. Romney is so anti-business that we will experience the same Winners & Losers game like we have experienced currently under Obama.

  • Kaitian

    My ignorance? Again, Social Conservatives really do love to regulate the lives of people in general. My wife is a political science graduate which she can tell me off the top of her head that social conservativism can tend to be a form of authoritarianism. Look, even the wiki on social conservativism backs my point up on this. You want to pry into the lives of others and enforce your values, your morals on others including keeping the GOProud out of the party. For example, I’m a big fan of Glenn Reynolds and he sees that doing crap like this is futile and only turns people off. But hey, go ahead and keep supporting Santorum. He’s big government like Bush was.

  • jainphx

    But lets get back to the other snake, Romney, and why he’s a snake. He has spent over 75 million dollars since 2008 in his quest for power and most in negative lying adds. How can anyone allow a liar to profit.

  • Kaitian

    Another point that backs me up on this is that the Tea Party works so hard to avoid topics regarding Social Conservativism because it is political suicide to do so. So they focus rather on fiscal conservatism.

  • Liz

    Woah, sleepy Thompson Van Winkle woke up to weigh in on this race? What did he say he likes about Gingrich? I’m at a loss. How about running a debt free campaign? ONly Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are doing that, and that’s the key skill set as far as I’m concerned.

  • Old Fan

    Fred Thompson is a fool.

    You have to be kidding.

    This is where the fashion has led us Mr. Hoft.

    Fred is a long time lobbyist – Senator who once helped give us the disaster named McCain-Feingold.

    He just is a big player. Palin, Levin, etc., all taking us downward over an unethical disaster named Newt – who cannot even be honest about his support for Rockefeller over Goldwater.

    Mrs. Palin’s latest Facebook nonsense only further revealed her less than stellar thought process, as she tells us the criticism of Gingrich is to be ignored, while we need to further investigate Romney’s successful Private Enterprise?

    This is the disastrous sophistry I tried to warn you about years ago. Some inflated a few who simply were not worthy of the hype, and now their dysfunctional self interest is only making a mess. Palin has turned the word “establishment” into a joke.

    Levin, Palin, etc., all gave the Democratic Partisans a huge gift in Delaware. They continue to sink the credibility of all. This isn’t Conservatism, but an image game which is deeply embarrassing.

    You are much better than this sophistry Mr. Hoft.

    Thank you.

    “But lets get back to the other snake, Romney, and why he’s a snake. He has spent over 75 million dollars since 2008 in his quest for power and most in negative lying adds. How can anyone allow a liar to profit.”

    This campaign cycle, guess what. He hasn’t spent a dollar of his own money for this time around. Campaign cannot survive without funding and fundraising. Welcome to politics. Obama chose not to take federal public funding and raised almost a billion dollars to win the campaign last time around.

    What proof do you have of that? What I stated was facts. Look at all the Tea Party protests across the country? They were all focused around fiscal conservatism against taxes, against the national debt, etc which I embrace just fine. Do you see me screaming the derogatory term “Tea-bagger” that the Democrats and Anderson Cooper loves to throw around?

    Go ahead make up your own stupid assumptions. Everyone’s entitled to their own.

    Sarah Palin accuses GOP of ‘Stalin-esque’ attack on Newt Gingrich

    Former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) sharply criticized the Republican Party “establishment” for using what she called a “Stalin-esque rewriting of history” to tar Newt Gingrich as he fights for the GOP presidential nomination.

    Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, posted a nearly 1,400-word statement on her Facebook page on Friday in which she accused Republican party elders of employing “tactics of the left” to derail the Gingrich campaign.

    “The Republican establishment which fought Ronald Reagan in the 1970s and which continues to fight the grassroots Tea Party movement today has adopted the tactics of the left in using the media and the politics of personal destruction to attack an opponent,” Palin wrote. “What we saw with this ridiculous opposition dump on Newt was nothing short of Stalin-esque rewriting of history. It was Alinsky tactics at their worst.”

    Palin has all but endorsed the Gingrich candidacy, saying before last week’s South Carolina primary that she would have voted for him if she had the chance. In her Facebook essay, she argued as she did in South Carolina that the GOP primary should go on so that each candidate, and particularly front-runner Mitt Romney, could be vetted by the public.

    She did not call out Gingrich’s critics by name, but two of the most prominent in the last week have been Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who tapped Palin as his running mate four years ago, and Bob Dole, the party’s presidential nominee in 1996. Palin defended Gingrich, saying that while he is an “imperfect vessel for Tea Party support,” he “fought in the trenches during the Reagan revolution.”

    In particular, she took on critics, including former members of the Reagan administration, who have accused Gingrich of standing against and undermining the 40th president, who is revered by conservatives.

    Though she again stopped short of a full-throated endorsement of the former House Speaker, Palin made clear she has reservations about Romney, the former Massachusetts governor.

    “Now, I respect Governor Romney and his success,” she wrote. “But there are serious concerns about his record and whether as a politician he consistently applied conservative principles and how this impacts the agenda moving forward. The questions need answers now. That is why this primary should not be rushed to an end. We need to vet this.”

    Palin also complained that the same GOP “establishment” figures now criticizing Gingrich did not come to her aid in 2008 nor did they go after then-Sen. Barack Obama with the same fervor. Obama, she said, “escape[d] unvetted.”

    “The challenge of this election is not simply to replace President Obama,” Palin wrote. “The real challenge is who and what we will replace him with. It’s not enough to just change up the uniform. If we don’t change the team and the game plan, we won’t save our country.”

    Newsmax is not a credible source. It is great for conservatives in general but it has embellished a lot of stories that I stopped reading them over a decade ago.

    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/01/the-story-behind-romney-medicare-fraud-and-the-latest-superpac-movie/

    After Bain sold the company to Corning, federal investigators caught Damon and a host of other medical-lab companies engaged in similar activity. Damon pleaded guilty to Medicare fraud in 1996 and paid a total of $119 million, including a criminal fine and a civil settlement. The United States Attorneys Bulletin outlined the sweeping investigations, known as LABSCAM, in its April 1997 issue. Other companies, such as SmithKlineBeecham, were also caught engaging in fraudulent activity and were forced to pay fines.

    Notice another thing there? Damon Corporation was not the only corporation overbilling. Oh and the ABC article also mentions this “Romney and the Damon board did, however, contact Damon’s lawyers, seek their counsel, and change Damon’s policies.”

    It is going to be a rocky ride so we need to hold. The attacks will come, even Pelosi has gotten in the act. I just can’t believe that Americans can vote for anything, 08 prove it to me. Rather heart breaking that there wasn’t better candidates because I feel just the opposite of what they all are saying.

    Was the last two debates the deal breaker for Gingrich?
    Attacks left and right?

    The Mitt machine, didn’t to attack. Look McCain, Huckabee, Romney and whoever. Romney lost last time and he has an axe to grind. So, be it on Gingrich.

    Romney’s $2 Trillion Gimmick

    As daunting as the budget numbers are, the worst part of Romney’s plan is its extraordinary myopia. Romney’s four-percent gimmick is a slogan, not a strategy. Strategy weighs a nation’s ends against its means, and adapts ways to achieve these ends within those resource constraints. A wise strategy also prioritizes the “must dos” from the “nice to dos.” A country’s threats do not rise or fall with its wealth. If anything, countries should be able to spend a decreasing share of their economy on defense as they grow richer. But U.S. military spending has nearly doubled in real terms since 1998, and we now spend more than at any time since the end of World War II, even though the threats facing this country are far more modest.

    According to Romney, such expenses are necessary because the security of other countries is, and should be, the primary concern for American taxpayers and troops. U.S. troops, Romney claims, must maintain a constant watch in every corner of the world, and must be poised to stop conflicts before they occur. He, like President Obama and Hillary Clinton, believes that this global posture reassures U.S. allies, who might otherwise be tempted to defend themselves. And Romney likes it that way. So, while Romney last week scorned “the Europeans” who were sending their money “out to social programs… and shrinking their military year after year after year,” his plan is likely to make that problem worse.

    The United States has played the role of global policeman long enough. Reversing this state of affairs, and getting other countries to do more, and pay more, to protect their security, should be the primary goal of U.S. foreign policy. Instead, Mitt Romney’s decision to embrace the tired status quo practically ensures that other countries will spend even less on their militaries, while Americans pay more, and U.S. troops sacrifice more.

    GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney is pushing a shortsighted and costly plan to boost his national security credentials. In a series of speeches and policy pronouncements last week, Romney promised to dedicate at least four percent of the nation’s economic output to the military’s base budget, increase naval shipbuilding by two thirds, expand funding for national missile defense, and grow the active duty ranks by 100,000. Romney’s intention to shower so much money on the Pentagon — on top of the huge increases of the past decade — will compound the nation’s strategic problems, as well as its fiscal ones.

    The most striking thing about Romney’s proposal is the staggering cost. Based on the most likely of three different sets of Congressional Budget Office projections, defense spending will total $637 billion (or 2.7 percent of GDP) in 2021. Romney’s plan in that same year would cost taxpayers $900 billion. Cumulative defense spending for the ten-year period from FY 2012 to 2021, according to CBO projections, would total $5.811 trillion. Romney’s plan would cost $7.857 trillion, a difference of $2.046 trillion.

    CATO is actually one of those fiscal conservatives people which I can embrace that just fine. Those budget proposals over raising the Department of Defense reminds me of one person. Ronald Reagan. He pretty much doubled the Department of Defense budget throughout the Cold War. Hey, it’s a better idea than “spreading the wealth around” ala “Let me take your dollar and give it to me!”

    Especially the piece is a bit dated now because there are no more American troops in Iraq. Also this reads like a Ron Paul piece to me because of the last couple sentences.

    Drudge has a huge readership and is using this power to manipulate the news in Romney’s favor. The headlines and pictures Drudge uses for Newt are very degrading, while those for Romney are very flattering.

    Wonder what kind of graft Romney has bestowed upon Drudge?

    Romney’s Bain Capital owns Clear Channel Communications, which essentially owns the Conservative Talk Radio industry.

    http://thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/10547-romneys-bain-capital-owns-media-giant-broadcasting-limbaugh-hannity

    ” Today, of course, Romney no longer leads the firm he co-founded, though Bain Capital and Bain & Co. are shoveling gargantuan sums of money into his campaign. But Romney still owns a huge stake in the company and profits handsomely from it, according to his financial disclosure report. And analysts say he undoubtedly still wields at least some degree of influence.

    “If you have been wondering why so many conservative talk show hosts are being so incredibly kind to Mitt Romney, this just might be the answer,” explained a popular blogger commenting on the Bain Capital-Clear Channel connection, saying it was improper for one of the Republican front-runners to have such an overwhelming financial stake in talk radio. “In the media world, there is a clear understanding that you simply do not bite the hand that feeds you…. If you were making tens of millions of dollars a year, wouldn’t you be very careful to avoid offending your boss?”

  • Kaitian

    “How dare, we the people, deny him of this?”

    We can deny him the nomination. By not voting for him. However the large minority of Florida in this winner-takes-all contest doesn’t share your opinion. If you want to change the primary system and how it works, let me know what your proposal is. My wife’s proposal is have the primary held on 1 day for both democrats and republicans. They would have to work in all the states instead of letting Iowa / New Hampshire / any other early birds pick the outcome of this nomination.

    Another suggestion is to do a Top 2 system like California does and distribute the delegates based on differences. Why not.

    The point I am making is that Hot Air is shilling for Romney who is a MORMON even though they are owned by Salem Communications, a promoter of evangelical Christian conservatism.

    FYI, evangelical Christians are generally anti-Mormon more so than they are anti-Catholic.

    Hence, I am questioning why Hot Air is pro-Romney in their posts instead of being pro-Santorum.

Sorry to disoblige you, but repeating the same, disproven lies does not help your case, it only makes you look gullible.

    I’m no conservative, I’m a Liberal that tests center-center-center.

    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.

  • Kaitian

    Not just drudge..

    ‘Stumping at a seafood restaurant here along the Gulf coast, Mitt Romney picked up the endorsement of actor Jon Voight, the star of “Midnight Cowboy” who is perhaps best known these days as the father of actress Angelina Jolie. The actor has long been active in Republican politics, campaigning for Rudy Giuliani’s presidential campaign in 2008 and traveling with Mike Huckabee to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last year.

    Voight told the crowd he was backing Romney because he was “strong” and “honest.” He declared President Obama had “decided to follow his father’s footsteps and take us to socialism.”‘

    Mitt Romney picks up Jon Voight’s endorsement–and jokes about Angelina Jolie

    So will Romney, Voight.. and we already have one poser in the WH who likes movie actors and other phonies.

  • http://www.southernwolf.net S. Wolf

    True this.

    ‘Mitt Romney is doing precisely what Progressives and the media do year after year. He is unable to debate honestly on conservative ideas and win. Scratch the campaign pressed and ready veneer and Mitt Romney is center-Left. If he were in the White House, he’d be crafting legislation with Democrats and liberal Republicans, not conservatives.

    Because he can not win on ideas, or ideology, he is resorting to the politics of personal destruction. When the media and more honest Leftists do this, we see it and we are appalled by it. Unfortunately, aided by a multi-million dollar ad campaign, Mitt Romney is getting away with it for now. But make no mistake, the tactic he is employing is just as damaging to conservatism as when the media and Democrats employ it.

    If you want to support a guy who will conclude that you, as a conservative, are dumb and behind the times and need to be “managed” as a problem if elected by securing your vote with dishonesty, you’re welcome to do it. It’s a free country. But you should at least know you are doing it. You may as well be embracing the tactics of Barack Obama, the ones that have infuriated you these last several years. It’s Obama and the Left’s playbook Romney is using to win, not a conservative one.’

    The funniest thing to see is Drudge linking to the Fred Thompson story, while having multiple ‘hit’ pieces against Newt at the top of the very same page. By ‘hit’ I am not referring to news, but rather to opinion. It is very odd for Drudge to favor opinion in that spot. The top had been reserved for actual facts and news, but not since linking to hit pieces against Newt became more important than actual news events at Drudge.

  • AuntieMadder

    @ bg #155: I don’t know if I should feel embarrassed or proud about this, but the only Fred Thompson movie that I saw and remember is “Racing Stripes.” (I saw Cape Fear, hated it so bad that I repressed the memory of that hour and a half of my life.) And I’ve never watched an episode of Law & Order, not even part of an episode. I do, however, recognize Thompson the actor in the YouTube clip that you linked. Hollywood makeup artists work wonders, don’t they?

    In defense of my having watched Love Boat, I was just a kid in the 70s. Not only did I not know any better but, truth is, most of Aaron Spelling’s programs, although not written for or targeted to the kid audience, appealed to kids just the same.
