Rubio scolds Gingrich camp, says ad bashing 'anti-immigrant' Romney is 'inaccurate, inflammatory'

Sen. Marco Rubio scolded Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign over a Spanish-language radio ad that accuses rival Mitt Romney of being “anti-immigrant”

 “This kind of language is more than just unfortunate. It’s inaccurate, inflammatory, and doesn’t belong in this campaign,” Rubio told The Miami Herald when asked about the ad.

“The truth is that neither of these two men is anti-immigrant,” Rubio said. “Both are pro-legal immigration and both have positive messages that play well in the Hispanic community.”

 Rubio’s sharp rebuke comes a day after he subtly corrected Gingrich for comparing Romney to former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, branded by conservatives as a turncoat who left the party before Rubio beat him in 2010.

 The criticisms from someone of Rubio’s stature in the Republican Party comes as polls show a near-even race, albeit with Gingrich surging.

 Rubio plans to stay neutral in the race. He’s a potential running mate whom both candidates would love to have on the ballot. And he’s gaining iconic status among many national Republicans who see him as a face of the future in a nation that’s growing more Latino.

 Miami, Rubio's hometown, is a key battleground. The candidates are all wooing the Cuban-exile community here, which accounts for nearly three-quarters of the Republican vote in the largest county of the nation’s largest swing state.

 Already, about 54,000 early ballots have been cast in Miami Dade, where nearly three-quarters of the Republicans are Hispanic.

  Rubio’s statement was fueled by the explosive, partisan debate over immigration, a key issue this election season as both parties aggressively court the Hispanic vote.

 Democrats and liberals have tried to paint the Republican candidates as anti-immigrant or even anti-Hispanic for opposing legislation such as the DREAM Act, which provides a path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants – mainly college students and soldiers.

 Rubio, who frets that the DREAM Act gives too much “amnesty” to a broader class of immigrants, and other Republicans have accused Democrats of playing rank ethnic politics.

 So when Gingrich’s radio spot described Romney as “the most anti-immigrant candidate,” Rubio and others felt he not only crossed the line – he was adopting liberal criticisms.

Neither Romney or Gingrich is perfect, but ANYTHING would be better than Obama. The question is which GOP candidate is most capable of leading this country out of the socialist quagmire this nation is in? If Republicans nominate the true leader who has the capacity to right the wrongs of the past and put the nation on the right track, but the American people are too afraid (afraid of losing some of their bread and circus entitlements) and end up reelecting Obama, then so be it. If this happens the nation has made a conscious decision to commit national suicide. If the electorate is truly that delusional then it is time to end it. Perhaps then we will learn from the mistakes (the hard way) and can start over again. (If the people are afraid of fixing our problems NOW, imagine how hard it will be for them to face fixing things after a complete economic collapse?)

Richard Mulvaney

Rubio should be commended for telling the truth about the smear artist Gingrich. Like the Pied Piper of Hamlin Newt will lead the Republican Party over a cliff to ultimate disaster. How in the world could anyone like this philandering, nasty, arrogant slime bag is beyond me.He must be stopped.

Dino

Unbelievable, you ARE unbelievable.

This is why old Newt is trouble, He will blow up the Republican Party, This has already begun to happen.

You can see how Newt Gingrich really hasn't changed very much by the way he is talking these days, he is a hateful man ready to pop, at least we know how he actually IS,

Newt can say he is sorry again, he is at peace about the following:

Wife #1 and #2

Newt proposed to Marianne (she was 28, he 36) in 1980 while his first wife, Jackie, was in the hospital recovering from treatments for uterine cancer. He hadn't yet even asked her for a divorce. Newt met Jackie in high school. She was his geometry teacher. He was sixteen, she was 25. When he left, Jackie was nearly destitute. Jackie, the Esquire story reports, "had to get a court order just to pay her utility bills."

Wife #2 and #3

Callista Bisek, Gingrich's current wife, became his mistress first and his wife second (really third, if one is counting wives), while Marianne was home visiting her mother. In 1999, Marianne had just been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Newt asked Callista to marry him before he and Marianne had agreed to divorce. The affair had been going on for years. Newt compared Marianne to a "Jaguar" and Callista to a "Chevrolet" and said he needed a Chevrolet, not a Jaguar, according to the Esquire story. In 2000 the couple wed.

Sometimes it's hard for a Leopard to loose their spots

He is embarrassing as a guy

RGF

Rubio is just flat out wrong. Newt supports allowing illegal immigrants who've been here a long time to get permanent residency. Mitt supports "self-deportation" or some nonsense like that, and does not support any accomodation for long-term illegals. Rubio should get his facts straight before he criticizes Newt.

DrMaxHathaway

Rubio is talking out his rear-end. The JUNIOR boy Senator is behaving like Obama.

He should realize that Gingrich is right on Romney.---Romney has said he would send them all back (even tho we all know its a campaign lie).

Dianna

According to the Supreme Court of the United States, Marco Rubio is NOT a Natural Born Citizen.

“The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.” Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162, 168."

Marco Rubio can NEVER run for POTUS or VEEP. He would be as unconstitutional as Barry Obama the usurper.

ajs3176

who are you kidding TimothyDNaegele? you are going to vote for obama anyway. The people like you aren't going to vote Republican anyhow. Who cares what you have to say?

DrMaxHathaway

ROMNEY IS UN-ELECTABLE: Here's WHY:

If Mitt Romney manages to win the GOP nomination, then we need to hope he is far better-prepared to handle the liberals' anti-Mormon slime machine than he was prepared to handle intra-party jabs at his Bain record, his tax returns, and his flip-flopping.

I would be quite dishonest if I said that I wasn't worried about what the liberals and their lackeys in the press will do to defame the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in their win-at-any-cost zeal to re-elect Barack Obama. Mitt Romney's religious faith is likely to be mocked, sensationalized, disparaged, and dragged through the media gutters. It could even be uglier than the fanning of racial tensions and demonization of the wealthy, also projects pushed by the Obama machine.

If that were not bad enough, moderate, not-particularly-religious voters in the general election may well be susceptible to the filth. That prospect is looming like the big, fat, completely unacknowledged elephant in the nomination room. Republicans seem to believe that if they don't talk about it, then neither will the Democrats.

That's just more than a little naïve, in my opinion.

Here's a clue for the GOP ostrich-class. When Barack Obama and his surrogates slyly played the race card against the wife of the "First Black President" to jujitsu the Clinton machine, your country-club blinders should have hit the dustbin with sentient ferocity.

And just because the GOP establishment ruled Jeremiah Wright and his un-Christian black liberation theology out of bounds, they may be now thinking Barack Obama's super PACs wouldn't dare -- would not dare -- to use Mitt's Mormonism to attack him.

What an adorable fantasy that is. Almost too cute for words.

And far too naïve for shrewd Republican primary voters to indulge.

The only way to beat off an attack you know is coming is to prepare for the worst, while hoping for the best. I've seen no sign, so far, that Mitt Romney has adequately prepared for any of the easily predictable attacks against him, which is a glaring deficit in his managerial competence credentials.

So, how might the liberal slime machine work to instill fear of the first LDS president among the fence-sitting moderate and not-particularly-religious independent voters?

Well, here's one clue from Slate in 2006. Jacob Weisberg, then chief editor at Slate (a Washington Post company), wasn't the least bit reticent in this piece, titled "A Mormon president? No way." While acknowledging that some might call him a "religious bigot," Weisberg nevertheless came out blasting -- not against Mormonism's "cult" status among mainline Christians, but against "the founding whoppers of Mormonism."

The LDS church holds that Joseph Smith, directed by the angel Moroni, unearthed a book of golden plates buried in a hillside in Western New York in 1827. The plates were inscribed in "reformed" Egyptian hieroglyphics - a nonexistent version of the ancient language that had yet to be decoded. [Snip] Smith was able to dictate his "translation" of the Book of Mormon first by looking through diamond-encrusted decoder glasses and then by burying his face in a hat with a brown rock at the bottom of it. He was an obvious con man. Romney has every right to believe in con men, but I want to know if he does, and if so, I don't want him running the country.

Weisberg's was a withering attack, aimed not at righteousness, but at the non-religious twin jugulars of reason and intelligence.

Christopher Hitchens, outright foe of all religions, saved some of his most virulent intellectual attacks for Islam and the Latter-Day Saints:

If the followers of the prophet Muhammad hoped to put an end to any future "revelations" after the immaculate conception of the Koran, they reckoned without the founder of what is now one of the world's fastest-growing faiths. And they did not foresee (how could they, mammals as they were?) that the prophet of this ridiculous cult would model himself on theirs.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints -- hereafter known as the Mormons -- was founded by a gifted opportunist who, despite couching his text in openly plagiarized Christian terms, announced that "I shall be to this generation a new Muhammad" and adopted as his fighting slogan the words, which he thought he had learned from Islam, "Either the Al-Koran or the sword." He was too ignorant to know that if you use the word al you do not need another definite article, but then he did resemble Muhammad in being able only to make a borrowing out of other people's bibles.

Hitchens, like Weisberg, questioned not the "cult" label applied to Mormonism among mainline Christians, but rather the intelligence of any reasonable adult who would put his faith in a putatively proven charlatan. Hitchens reminded his readers that shortly before Mormon "prophet" Joseph Smith "discovered" the Book of Mormon on the golden tablets, which only he could translate, he was convicted of "being a disorderly person and an imposter." In an 1826 Bainbridge, New York courtroom, "prophet" Smith had admitted that he had "defrauded" people and that he possessed dark or "necromantic" powers.

And as Weisberg cannily noted in 2006, whether Moses and/or Jesus might also have been religious charlatans, there is certainly not now any easily obtained historical record to this effect. Religions thousands of years old require faith, to be sure, but the Latter-Day Saints' less than two centuries in existence, and with historical evidence of their prophet's sketchy police record so abundant, requires squelching one's reason to put faith in it.

Other Mormons now serve in American government, unmolested by fervent attacks on their intelligence and beliefs. But Mitt Romney, seeking the mantle of first LDS president, who, if elected, will unseat the first black president, will have no such genteel protection.

The doctrines and founding stories of any religion can be mocked, of course. But the LDS, whose doctrines are unfamiliar to most gentiles (as the LDS refer to non-Mormon people) is especially vulnerable. Those asking Mormon questions won't need to rely on Baptist or Catholic theologians or upon the definition of a "cult" to give them ample fodder. They can merely go to Wikipedia and ask about the Mormon belief in "exaltation" and "eternal progression":

In Mormonism, the goal of each adherent is to achieve "exaltation" via the atonement of Jesus, as a result of which they inherit all the attributes of God the Father, including godhood. Mormons believe that these people will become gods and goddesses in the afterlife, and will have "all power, glory, dominion, and knowledge".[5] Moreover, Mormons teach that exalted people will live with their earthly families and also "have spirit children".[6] Their cosmic posterity will continue to grow forever.

According to the belief, exaltation is available only to those who have earned the highest "degree" of the Celestial Kingdom.[7] As prerequisites for this "greatest gift of God",[8] adherents believe that either in this life or the afterlife, they must become "perfect", they must participate in all the required ceremonies, and their exaltation must be "sealed upon them" by the Holy Ghost via the Second Anointing. One of the key qualifications for exaltation is being united in a celestial marriage to an opposite-sex partner via the ordinance of sealing,[9][10] either in person or by proxy after they have died. In the 19th century, some leaders of the LDS Church taught that participation in plural marriage was also a requirement of exaltation.[11] The LDS Church abandoned the practice over a century ago and teaches that only a single celestial marriage is required for exaltation.[12] However, this practice is still taught by Mormon fundamentalists.

Once American voters are cognizant of Mitt Romney's belief that his earthly perfection and Mormon tithes are necessary for his "exaltation" to godhood, they may see his life of abstinence and good works through a different lens. And believing those lenses will be rose-colored seems quite gullible or ignorant, or both.

Of course, the worst attacks on Mormonism will be based not on cosmology or theology, but upon the more earthly concerns about the Latter-Day Saints' history.

Until 1979, the Mormons were an unapologetic racist organization, which denied any level of priesthood to any man of African descent, regardless of his skin color. Again, citing Wikipedia, from the Book of Mormon, referring to descendents of "Laminites" (African tribes):

And [God] had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people, the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them. And thus saith the Lord God; I will cause that they shall be loathsome unto thy people, save they shall repent of their iniquities." (2 Nephi 5:21)

Citing new "revelation," the Mormon hierarchy removed the African ban to its priesthood in 1979. Just as the Mormons had abandoned polygamy to gain statehood for Utah, they abandoned the belief in the "curse" of dark skin and African lineage.

Unfortunately, when Mitt Romney attempts to gain the mantle of first Mormon president by unseating the first black president, this racist history will become a centerpiece of the electoral battle.

Polygamy may be old and outdated Mormon doctrine, but how many average female voters will be willing to ignore it altogether? On the night of the Iowa caucuses, the Lifetime Movie Network played its Brigham Young polygamy extravaganza movie, The Nineteenth Wife. The movie features a modern woman battling polygamy still within a fundamentalist Mormon sect. Republicans should expect this issue to be repeated ad nauseam during the general election if Romney is the nominee.

While social conservatives make common cause with Mormons on a score of issues, social liberals (even fiscal conservatives allied with Republicans) will have a heyday with the Mormons' history of homophobia. Lest anyone has forgotten the vitriol of California's Proposition 8 fight, the liberals' anti-Mormon slime machine will no doubt provide ample reminders. Members of the LDS church put millions into the passage of Proposition 8, while its leaders invoked on-the-ground volunteer assistance. As reported by the LA Times in 2008:

Proposition 8 opponents estimate that members of the Mormon Church gave more than $20 million to the effort to pass the measure, though that is difficult to confirm because records of campaign donations do not include religious affiliation.

On the issues related to racism, feminism, and homophobia, Obama will have no worries about voter turnout if Mitt Romney is the Republican nominee. The liberal shock troops will come out in droves perhaps even surpassing those of 2008 to stop the first Mormon president from unseating the first black president.

While Mitt Romney is trying to explain the particulars of high finance and private equity firms, he will also be required to deal with the liberals' anti-Mormon slime machine. And Republicans can only hope that he is better-prepared on this front than he has been on others.

Newt2012

There's so mouch BS on these comments. Newt was never "forced" to resign. He chose to resign after Republicans lost 5 seats, and he would have probably won re-election as Speaker if he chose to run, but he decided to take responsibility for the loss of seats and resign his campaign for speaker. Gingrich will win in 2012, and he will win a spectacular number of states--probably 40 to 45.

Zack

Newt Gingrich can not win in the general election or the primary. He will not be on the ballot in five states: As for Romney, who knows where this man stands? Can you honestly tell me that he is pro-life or will fight for your right to own a gun? Romney thinks the NDAA is a good thing. I refuse to vote for anyone that believes that.

Other than his foreign policy most people will agree that Ron Paul is the best candidate. Quiet frankly whether you agree with his foreign policy or not we are going to be forced to pull put anyway. Fifteen trillion plus in debt and you honestly think our government can continue to print money to support more "troop movements"? Ron Paul is the MOST electable. Not only will he gain the independent, anti-war, pull the youth vote from Obama, all of the GOP (who would rather vote for a shoe than Obama), and even the democrats are swigging parties to vote for him. Be honest with yourselves, it's Ron Paul or Obama no other GOP candidate can sway independents in the up coming election whether you like it or not.

So ask yourselves, do you really want another four years of Obama because you can't accept a foreign policy that's we are going to have to accept whether we want to or not due to this deficit? 70% of America thinks it's time to come home, we dont need, nor can we sustain another troop movement. Make the right choice to get this socialist dictator out of office.

Rick

I am from Florida. I have the greates respect and admiration for Senator Rubio, but I just voted for Newt. If Newt said something so stupid on Spanish language radio, he should be called on it. On the other hand, when Mitt's supporters weave lies about Newt, they should be called on it, as well. Mitt's an honorable man, and, if nominated, I will support him. However, I am tired of the Republican party nominating "WHIMPS" like McCain and Dole. I want someone, like Newt, who will grab Obama by the throat, during a debate, and beat his face in. I don't think that Mitt is capable of doing that. We are not going up against a John Kennedy democrat. We're going up against a pit of communist, racist vipers in the White House. I am tired of the "high road". Let's take the "Low road" and stomp on these rats where they live!

RF

Rubio is flat out wrong about this. Newt suppots allowing illegal immigrants to gain permanent residency if they've been here a long time. Mitt wants them all to "self-deport", including illegals who've been in the US for 25 years. Mitt wants to deport grandmothers and grandfathers. Newt has compassion. There's a big difference between the two views.

b.mclane

Wonder if all these Gingrichites have seen Newt's scribbling done when he was Speaker? He declares himself the center of the universe and the teacher of culture. Amazing how people see ONLY what they want to see in Newt.I blame the GOP Leaders who are so silent we never hear them say things like the media is bias. So let an egomaniac, a proven adulterer, a disgraced and scorned "leader" say it and BAM !! All his foibles are forgiven . The GOP leaders are not like talk rado personalities,they have to try and work with insane people and can't run around name calling.Labeling Mitt Romney a Liberal because he ran a VERY Liberal State SUCCESSFULLY, working with an 85% Liberal Legislature only shows how committed he is to Conservative Core Principles. You don't get as rich as he is by being a Lib unless like Pelosi you do back door deals via your husband or like Kerry marry money. Mitt earned his $$ and Newt has earned his reputation. You people want to WIN this election or act like Brats?

damainvincent

we all remember how Romney attacked Perry on immigration, it's not going to be hard to level that charge. Rubio is a RINO Romney sell out. Just wrote him off.

Joey

Gingrich is the ultimate Hispanderer and has possibly the worst plan for amnesty of any candidate. Local citizen tribunals get to decide who should be awarded amnesty or not. This just means heavy immigrant localities will be more than benevolent to their 'La Raza' brethren. But don't worry. Newt says it's not amnesty because there is no pathway to citizenship jut permanent residency. So his buddies in the business lobby have all the cheap labor they need and they don't get to vote for Democrats. One problem. Within a generation, their anchor babies will be more than eager to give the Democrats a one party dictatorship since Republicans are too cowardly to address birthright citizenship. Good for Rubio for putting country before his ethnicity but we're gonna need a lot more progress fighting this invasion if we want to save the country.

John Sheridan

I had a lot of hope for Mr. Rubio and THOUGHT he was a conservative with a lot of promise, but when he CONTINUALLY votes for laws destroying the constitution and ripping away our freedoms(like the NDAA) he is LOST to me and many other conservatives. He has evidently been co-opted by the 'Dark Side' of the Republican Establishment Globalists.

Marco Rubio is another Congress TOOL. Just another traitor and liar among the majority in Congress. He voted for NDAA section 1021 and supported SOPA until the uprise against it recently right before the vote. NDAA went with little reaction from the public because few knew of it. As the daughter of a Cuban father, I find it even more deplorable that a Cuban "exile" from Communism would support such unconstitutional and facists acts! Let's see who will join Joe Lieberman and Charles Dent in support the Expatriation Act HE 3166!!! Gingrich, Romney, and Santurom openly admitted in a past debate that they supported NDAA AND SOPA. Are people so DENSE or just so controlled by the media that they don't take the time out to do some research of their own on these candidates!? I WILL ONLY CAST MY VOTE FOR THE ONLY PATRIOT AND CONSTITUTIONAL CANDIDATE RUNNING NOT BOUGHT OR CONTROLLED BY CORPORATIONS AND LOBBYIST!

RON PAUL 2012!
RESTORE AMERICA!!!

JSFlorida

Anyone that votes for Obama should tatoo themselves as such so we can all spit on them after the country falls. The US can NOT survive under a Socialist regime. Our debt is already at the tipping point of no return.

JSFlorida

Romney is out-spending Newt in Florida 20-1. Rick Scott won the governorship with the same strategy. Are we a state that can so easily be pursuaded by media, or in this case the opinions of grand-stander?

JSFlorida

"Gingrich is nothing but a big government big spending Progressive with a "R" after his name."

WHAT? This is the most idiotic comment here. Read the Contract for America that Newt help compose. It outlined a plan that is 100% counter to Progressive ideals.

Steve

I have a problem with politicians who throw out criticisms like this if they aren't going to do it fairly.

Could Rubio say something about the million inaccurate charges that Romney has hurled at Newt Gingrich?

RubioBoobio

Rubio...you screwed up this time.

Joan K

Everyone needs to realize that the ONLY viable Republican candidate left in office is RON PAUL. He has more support amongst the Independents than ANY other republican candidate AND he can win votes from Dems. His highest hurdle is to win as the Republican nominee bc he is not a warmongerer.

You cannot lose with RON PAUL. He is the only PRINCIPLED Conservative Candidate left in the race. You know where he stands and what to expect from him. Unlike the others, he is not lying to you to get your votes. Solid and dependable he will rein in the government, help reduce the debt by bringing down spending and introduce sound currency. He says he will defend the USA according to the Constitution. His non-intervention policy is actually the way to go according to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

Joe

Rubio wants Romney to win. This way he becomes VP candidate. Gingrich wins and he takes a northerner like Daniels or Santorum...don't believe Rubio when he says that he doesn't want to be VP

Randy

some of you want Newt due to his bombastic and loud speaking style. Great, he is an angy old man who still can't control his temper. We are all angry at Obama but how angry are you gonna be when Obama and his team wipe the floor with Newt. You think the attacks on Newt are bad now, just wait till Obama's team starts tearing into Newt. They will turn Newt into the insider who peddles his influence for money, which is true. None of you Newt supporters have a problem with Newt as a defacto K Streeet lobbyist? Get real and wake up! An angry old man who is a serial cheater (thus a liar) and insider standing next to Obama? You are delusional if you think Newt has a chance in hell of beating Obama.

michaeldangel

Words and phrases like "self deportation" do not belong in this campaign. When Mr Romney mischaracterised Gov. Perry's stance and policy on how the children of illegals should be treated by Texas colleges and universities that was all I needed to hear. How can anyone be for punishing the child for the parents sins? Mr. Rubio you have now shown that you too are one of the folks whom also need to depart congress.

Brian

Rubio didn't rip anyone. This is a crappy attempt to drum up controversy by the author. Shame on this kind of yellow jouranlism.

TBD

Rubio does not represent real Floridians. nHe's a ineffective political trickster like all the rest.

damainvincent

Look at the facts. Mitt Romney was a Liberal when he governed Mass. He signed gun bans, hiked taxes, or fee's as he and most liberals would like to call them, half a billion dollars. he supported abortion, to the point of defending how minors could get abortions without parental consent or notification. He actually kicked the boy scouts out of participating in the Olympics because they didn't allow gay's as scoutmasters. Mitt Romney is not Conservative, No Republican, and the base of this party WILL NOT SUPPORT HIM. 70% of the party will vote for anyone but him, be it bachman, Perry, Cain, or Newt. We can win this thing or fracture the party. Conviction Conservatives will never vote for someone with such a liberal record, especially when the Next Pres is going to appoint probably two Supreme Court justices.

Two Catholics grand standing about who will lead this land for their Grand Pontiff. Why is the still wet Cuban in the high office? Because he is Catholic in service of Rome.

Washington DC is an illegitimate Fascist dictatorship. The elections are a farce.

Steve

Romney is a flop. He denied admitting he was wrong on the Massachusetts health plan. Newt at least admitted he was wrong on the mandate and he did it long before he decided to run for president.

Because of Romney, premiums sky-rocketed in his state, abortions are now funded by taxpayers, and he still refuses to acknowledge it as a flop.

The establishment is threatening a meltdown if Gingrich wins Tuesday. IT WAS THE SAME establishment who sold him out in the 90's and refused to admit they were wrong when Newt was cleared of all wrongdoing stemming from a barrage of 84 ethics charges thrown at him by a liberal.

Now, Romney gets to tell only half that story and the establishment today who stabbed Newt in the back in the 90's after all Newt did for the Republican Party now come out in support for Mitt!?

Of course they do. And you know what that means? It means the establishment needs a shakeup just as much as the liberals do.

Throw them all out and let's start from scratch because IF the establishment thinks the Tea Party is over, they are SORELY mistaken.

EllieEnlightened

Oh you foolish people. If you think Romney can beat Obama because the LSM says so think again. The left admitted to him being the WEAKEST candidate. Instead of bashing Newt look at what he did when he worked with Clinton. The same establishment told us McCain was moderate enough to win. How did they work out for you?

Texas

Rubio is to young and only talks a good game. Remember Rubio's back track on illegals; If he did not have a spanish last name he would be no different than senator Lee from Utha. If Republicans start pikcing peolpe for their names and not for thier ablity we will have another Obama.

Michael Veritas

I also agree, both Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush should support Mitt Romney, for the good of the Republican Party and the United States.
I can clearly see that Mitt Romney is the only candidate, who can get elected against Obama's svelte, pernicious, well-oiled, skull-breaking political machine. My fellow Republicans, have no idea what's coming at them and Newt cannot convince Independents, moderates, Reagan Democrats and Libertarians to vote for him in sufficient numbers to achieve victory in the general election. Mr. Gingrich is a sure bet to loose against Pres. Obama.

RubioBoobio

Romney obligated Rubio (by backing him) and others he thought he would get a return favor of, and Rubio played right into it.
Rubio, you are an amatuer.
Newt is by far the best man for the job.

Candice

Amen TimothyD and Norman. I was taught from a very young age that sacrifice was a huge indicator of your love of someone else over yourself. My parents sacrificed everything, including their health, for their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. They weren't perfect but there was never any doubt that they loved. During WW2, The American people united and sacrificed for this nation. It is because they loved this country. We now have a man in office who has demonstrated by his actions that he does not love this country...period. Newt Gingrich is no different. Newt Gingrich has the same superiority complex, as evidenced by the fact that he couldn't even sacrifice for his wife (wives) to whom he promised to love, honor, and cherish. Yes...absolutely there is forgiveness....but come on people. An alcoholic can repent and change their life but they are still an alcoholic. Newt is still narcissistic. I despise it when the President speaks with his nose lifted--it is a posture of arrogance and superiority (Non-verbal Communication 101).....guess what....Newt does the exact same thing. John Adams and James Madison both indicated that the Constitution can only govern a moral people. So if I am advocating saving the Constitution and this great nation how could I in good conscience (and against my common sense) vote for a man like Newt Gingrich??

Edward Boothe,
I agree with some of what you say, but please, please, please, if you want people to take you seriously, get the spelling of names correct before you hit the "send" button on your computer. It's Saul Alinsky, and he wrote the book Rules for Radicals. I'm not trying to be a boor, but correct spelling reflects careful and thoughtful research of your ideas. When you misspell important words and names, people dismiss your ideas as trivial. Thanks.

Romney obligated Rubio (by backing him) and others he thought he would get a return favor of, and Rubio played right into it.
Rubio, you are an amatuer.
Newt is by far the best man for the job.

@Joy - This is what the Constitution says regarding the citizenship of the President: "No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States." No where in there does it mention anything about parents.

NEITHER candidate can call themselves conservative so I don't what everyone is arguing about. Both believe in global warming caused by man, both believe in the individual mandate, both are actual pro-immigrant and both have spoke against Reagan at one time or another. (Gingrich actually condemned Ryan's budget and then protracted when he caught grief) So if you are for Romney or Gingrich...they are one in the same!

I like Marco Rubio.

I would have also appreciated Mr. Rubio calling out Chris Christie (whom I feel is doing a great job as my governor) for his "disgrace" remark about Newt Gingrich.

Wow! Gingrich must be doing great in Florida!

The Democrap drones are in this blog in full force, lying about being "independents" while dropping all the leftist hatebomb speech words (just see Timothy D Naegele's pack of lies fro an example).

Florida Folks - don't let these trolls mess with your minds. They're idiots of the first order, and they are petrified of what they know is coming, and are powerless to stop it...

Ignore the TV commercials, do your own homework, and remember that if Obama is elected to another term, stick a fork in this country - it's DONE, and it will be a horrible end for America.

Even for the lying leftist Democrat trolls.

Rubio has spoken very favorably of Romney but it is not enough as he needs to endorse him. Many of us can't possible vote for Newt because he is unethical & immoral.

theduke89

Did Rubio complain about the trash ads Romney's people ran in Iowa and New Hampshire against Gingrich?

If he's declared himself neutral in the race, he ought to stay neutral.

LOL. WOW, all of these politicos are working both sides of the fence until they know who the nominee will be. The GOP establishment and the talking heads are all in a dither because the voting public is leaning to Newt who is not their pick for President. This is just another slap in the face for all Americans who do not tow the line for the GOP choice. Well, wake up folks, it is a new world and We The People are in charge.
