Newt Gingrich Whining About Negative Attacks ... Hypocritical ?

Newt Gingrich had been attacked one too many times by the Romney campaign this week. At the opening of his Urbandale office today, Gingrich chastised the Romney campaign for negative advertising. But never mentioned Romney’s name.

“I’m happy to compare records. But what we will not do, we won’t engage in negative ads and we won’t engage in tearing people down,” Gingrich said.

Mitt Romney’s campaign released a series of attacks against Gingrich this week. The first came in the form of the ever-popular email, titled, “With Friends Like Newt, Who Needs the Left?” The email was followed by a conference call with Romney surrogates who called Gingrich “self-aggrandizing” and “anti-conservative,” among other things.

Gingrich used President Obama as the main reason the Republican candidates should not attack each other.

“I’ve got good friends who are running. Everyone of them I believe would be better than Barack Obama,” Gingrich said. “We should have a positive campaign on the Republican side so that whoever comes out of this is strong enough to defeat Obama.”

Gingrich laid out his campaign strategy several months ago, telling ABC News, “You will not hear me say a negative thing about the other candidates.” Since then, Gingrich overall has stayed above the fray, but did call out Romney on CNN last week, saying he was “stubborn” for backing his health care policies in Massachusetts. He also said he was “a lot more conservative than Mitt Romney,” last month to the Charleston, S.C. AM News.

“I’ll tell none of my surrogates are going to be encouraged to go out and attack anyone,” Gingrich said. “We have lots of good, positive things to talk about.”

Tonight Gingrich will be in the ABC News debate, where he will likely endure more attacks from the other candidates as he leads S.C., Iowa and Florida in national polls

    By acting butt hurt 'cuz the other kids are picking on him; he's really saying two things: 1) he does not have the campaign money to fight back and that 2) his ego didn't prepare him for the obvious flavor of politics he perfected during the 90's. People are watching as he does his disingenious shock routine that it's 'rough' out there... gimme a break... he's been going to the Boehner Reform School for wayward politicians.... "okay, cry on que, now.."

    Can you believe that the t-party and the so called religious right would support this guy? WOW! I hope they can still look their kids in the eyes. Voting for him is basically telling them that Gingrich's immoral behavior is okay with them. That dispite the fact that Gingrich is a serial adulterer and cheater, they still consider him worthy of being president of this great country.The religious right condemns gay marriage, because they say they want to protect the sanctity of marriage. Yep supporting Gingrich is really supporting the sanctity of marriage.

    Newt is just saying that because he doesn't want his dirty laundry to be aired in public least people be constantly reminded of his own heavy and dirty baggage. He wants Romney to remain silent while his own attack dogs do his dirty work and smear campaign for him. Newt is a smug egotist who thinks the whole world is a fool and he is the only smart person in it. LOL

    And then he went on to make his nasty little $10 bet on camera. (A dig at Romney's $10,000. bet with Perry).

    Does he really think we're this stupid and he's that smart?

    Well, yes- he does- but he has so much baggage, and the right is such low information voters- any GOP would be a fool not to bring up his past.

    I guess Newt knows his past actions were so negative- there is no other way to describe them.

    ANY mention of his actions, are necessarily negative.

    Once again, Newt is the big crybaby we always knew he was.

    I hope Gingrich is not fool enough to think Obama is not up to his speed. I think he knows how to put Newt in his place without appearing mean and nasty about it as Newt does. If Newt wins the Republican nomination, he might just come across a worthy apponent and his six bits change in Obama. Obama is no Mitt Romney. As David Axelrod said about Gingrich just the other day, "the farther a monkey climbs up a pole, the better you can see his ass". LOL

    Well che, look at it this way: Infighting and internal mudslinging proves the right just doesn't have a whole lot in common with each other. If they do get elected to office, I do believe we will have some interesting days with cons crossing any which way to protect their own validity to their constituents without as much a glance at the overall rep stance on issues *winks*

    The grand high exalted mystic poobah, a legend in his own mind, is an ignoramus professor, playing race war politics saying urban kids have no work ethic models. Saying too weak on Libya, too strong on Libya, should not have gone into Libya. The legend plays the homophobic card with Palestinians are a made up people for Israelites would be too replacing them for Palestinians in his absurd statement. Failure if not TARP bailout, 750,000 jobs lost a month, negative GDP, it is regulation to not need TARP bailouts, and Stimulus that reversed the job an GDP loss.

    The truth is coming out about Newtie so he's trying to play nice so there won't be anymore negative ads about him. Just as soon as they stop (which they won't), he'll come firing back. He's such a liar and hypocrite.
