Really Newt?… Gingrich to Hold Rally With Lib James Clyburn in South Carolina

Well, at least it’s not Pelosi.
Newt Gingrich will hold a rally with liberal Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) in South Carolina.
What a wacky decision.
The State reported:

As he fights for the Republican presidential nomination, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will appear with one of the South Carolina’s most prominent Democrats.

Gingrich is scheduled to speak at a homeownership rally on Thursday in front of the State House along with U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, South Carolina’s lone Democratic congressman.

Other speakers include state Treasurer Curtis Loftis, who has endorsed Mitt Romney for president.

The rally is organized by the Home Builders Association of South Carolina and the National Association of Home Builders.

“Lawmakers and regulators are crafting proposals that, if left unchecked, will harm home owners, home buyers, the housing market and the nation’s economy,” organizers said in a news release. “On Thursday, January 12, Columbia’s home builders, Realtors and other industry professionals will join political, business and community leaders for a rally on the steps of the South Carolina State House to tell policymakers that homeownership still works in America…and needs our strong support.”

    Newt Clie Burn…sounds like a witches brew.

    Where is Cyndi Lauper?
    “I see your true colors……”

  • RedBeard

    Here we go again, with a prominent Republican thinking he can be “liked” if he cozies up to a leftie Dem. This is a complete falsehood, yet we see “smart” Republicans falling for the trick over and over again.

  • Evil Otto

    Newt, this is exactly the sort of thing that caused people to not trust you in the first place. As your campaign collapses, we see the real you emerging… again.

  • hermie

    And Newt can’t figure out why he’s not ahead?

    Does he think that Clyburn won’t turn around and slam him if ‘the Won’ told him to?

    Is there going to be a couch-loveseat there?

  • pink tie Republican

    Newt = dope.

  • Tom63010

    This is a case where the headline and the story don’t really match. The way I read the story Newt is merely a fellow participant. The home builders are concerned about Obama harming their profession. This is not even remotely close to Newt and Pelosi on the couch talking about global warming.

    Newt doesn’t always use common sense.

    Spiralling downward towards a liberal abyss.

    C’mon, Jim.. Really? I had more faith in you. Newt to HOLD Rally – and SCHEDULED to speak are completely different things. Conservatives have had to turn to the web and talk radio for our news, and lo and behold, we’re finding the same spin that the liberal media has been feeding us for years! It’d be a different story if the Homebuilders Association was a well known liberal organization – but they aren’t.
    And I see from the above comments, your readers are falling for it! ONE thing the liberal media DOES NOT DO is eat their own.

    i for one am not going to pre-judge..

    it could very well turn out to be quite revealing, could also put a
    lid on his campaign, have to wait & see if it’s genius or suicide..
    because it will be one or the other..

    excellent observation..

    “just words” ~ BHO & GP??


  • LibertyAtStake

    It’s how he gets to speak to the people who are coming out to see Clyburn. Might even change a mind or two. Why don’t you wait to hear what he actually says before piling on?

    “Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive”

  • KornKing

    Once again, it appears Newt is going to piss in his own wheaties

  • Lynn

    Newt is not allowed to be seen with a Dem? Since when?

    Go Newt – I’ll vote for you over Perry, Mittens and Ru Paul any day of the week.

    Reaganite Republican

    have to admit, that that was my first thought, but
    dismissed because i think she favors Santorum..

    aaah, we shall see, meantime we can only hope..

    btw, Cain is on a bus tour (not campaigning)..


  • Conservative to the Core

    I guess Newt is lurching Left in order to split the RINO vote. It might be the only way to keep the other Conservatives in the race and keep Romney from running away with the nomination. If Romney loses South Carolina, Florida, and Nevada, we could have a brokered convention.

    Paul won’t drop anytime soon. He didn’t drop out last time until June.
