Gingrich Hypocrisy Full Frontal

Tyler Durden's picture




 

If anyone feels like voting for Newt Gingrich after watching this interview, we only have one question: do whips, chains, and a skin-tight leather outfit await the return from the voting station? Bloomberg's Erik Schatzker reports on his interview with Paul Levy, managing partner at JLL Partners Inc., about a payment made to Newt Gingrich for a speech that "praised" private equity at a JLL annual
meeting two years ago.

Oil pipeline paraphernalia.  At least he consistently supports the oligarchs when it counts.  That's gotta count for something.

He's the best politician money can buy ... American exceptionalism at work!

BTW, that clip is such a blatant plug for Romney, and free advertising for Bain Capital, by Bloomberg that we no longer need to guess which candidate the oligarchs support (as if it wasn't already obvious).

Yup, makes sense to me.  Whack all the other candidates one by one, leave Willard as the standard bearer...with or without a Paul 3rd party run Obama wins again...and we can take that last step that sends us into the abyss.

Damn, what a kick-ass plan, eh?!

Dear God, we are a stupid bunch of suicidal primates!

Never mind the rattling coming from the closet. It is just Newt taking inventory of his party favors and his one-man-show carnival novelties.

Ex-wives can be fücking bitches. I admire him for trading in on hopefully a less cünty model. I would vote for him over Romney anyday and I used to play in the VC world.

I wonder if it is the wife (first?) he asked for a divorce while she was getting cancer treatment?

I hope she took him for everything he was worth and then some.

Or the wife (second?) he was cheating on with his "staffer" (now third wife) while wailing on Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky episode?

I know she's got a lot to talk about.

I'm just amazed that there's three women out there who would tolerate that prick at all.

Nothing can destroy Newt's candidacy.

Its all part of his strategy. Just be unapologetic about your scumbagishness then make the rest of the shit up. If you flip-flop so obviously, sheeple think its so obliviously flip-flopping that it can't be flip-flopping.

Here is an example: 'I fail to see the relevance in discussing my serving divorce papers on my dying cancer stricken fat old wife. She simply wasn't First Lady material and was interfering with one of my past times, namely having sex with farm animals while minor children watch. Look, this election is about having a conversation with the American People about the issues that matter. We need to cut the deficit, while increasing defense spending by lowering taxes. The people in this room deserve a candidate who is a true Reagan conservative whose principles will never waiver who can also work in a bi-partisan way to compromise those unwavering principles in the interest of getting America working again.

See? This is genius. We are watching a master at work.

And that he's a Christian Reconstructionist nutball whose supporters want to codify Old Testament Law on the state level once their chosen candidate is in office.  Death for gays, adulterers and delinquent children.

>>>At the John Birch Society 50th anniversary gala, Ron Paul spoke to another favorite theme of the Reconstructionists and others in the religious right: that of the "remnant" left behind after evil has swept the land. (Gary North's publication is called The Remnant Review.) In a dispatch on Paul's keynote address, The New American, the publication of the John Birch Society, explained, "He claimed that the important role the JBS has played was to nurture that remnant and added, 'The remnant holds the truth together, both the religious truth and the political truth.'"<<<

  That's a direct quote.  He speaks their language.  He is one of them. Ron Paul's Reconstructionist religious remnant holds the "political truth" together?  The Birchers?  What crap. I like my government secular and want to keep it that way.

It's easy to write speeches as long as you know the rules:

1) Speak only in platitudes, never specifics.
2) Facts don't matter. The media might grade you after the fact but the sheeple have switched over to re-runs of 'How I Met Your Mother' by the time they do. That's why its important to obey rule 1.
3) It's important to support and oppose every side of every major issue, but never so vehemently that your support or opposition ends up in a sound bite used in ads purchased by opponent super pacs.

This is why Ron Paul is unelectable. Facts, specifics and ideological consistency will get you killed in this business.

Marianne Gingrich. Mistress Number One, with whom Newt cheated on his first wife.

Mistress One became Wife Two...but was promptly replaced by Mistress Two, who then went on to become Wife Three ( Callista Gingrich ).

Turnaround is fair play, Marianne. "You pays your money, you takes your chances." That said, isn't this particular dish of revenge being served rather a bit too cold ? A bit obvious, is it not, so close to the South Carolina primary ? These Beltway types. Carrion-feeders. Thoroughly repellent.

Romney has all his invested money in the Caymans?? WTF?  This is totally legal as long as he declares his tax. I am sure he pays more than Buffett.  But why the Caymans?  Does he want it out of the USA so the elites do not seize his money like the rest of us saps?   Newt and Romney are RINOs and they are awful.  Santorum is light years better and Newt and Romney are light years better than the muslim.

Ron Paul 2012

Why does Romney have his money in the Caymans? Because that is where the hedgefunds and other pseudo-intelligent investment vehicles are headquartered.

Why do hedge funds set up shop in the Caymans? Because foreign investors in places like Singapore, Australia, and South America shouldn't have to be double taxed and tortured by both their domestic tax entity and the fucktards at the IRS.

Quite simple really. He isn't dodging taxes, it is the foreign investors that are dodging the idiocy of the IRS. We have 3 foreign partners in our firm that has taken over a year to get an ITIN from those clowns. The second partner got his ITIN in the mail the day after the IRS told him on the phone that they still hadn't received his third application documents. The third guy is still waiting for them to pull their collective IRS head out and he sent his 3rd app set in over a month before the second guy.

I'm afraid I can't agree with that one. The politicians are full of shit both before and after they are changed. Only changing diapers leaves you in a better spot.

I can think of a lot of reasons for not voting for Newt other than not making the Virginia ballot.

But if that's the reasoning it takes to get people to not support him, I guess it's better than the alternative.

WTF? Like it is some great political reward to get lucky and find a tolerable wife the first time around.

Is that the primary basis you want to choose a commander in chief? Because a punk was married only once? At best it demonstrates luck or pragmatism on the love front, at worst, an ineptitude to activate the escape pods.

Since when do personal relationships with women dictate the success of a man politically or in business?

>>>Since when do personal relationships with women dictate the success of a man politically or in business?<<<

Maybe when you don't ask them for a divorce while undergoing cancer treatment and cheat on them demonstrating what an intolerable prick you really are...and then giving them the ammo to kill your candidacy...you mean those personal relationships?

Newt's only problem was that he hasn't been able to find a wife stupid enough to tolerate his revolting personality...well, maybe wife #3...that remains to be seen.  I think he is just too old and fat to be attractive enough to the kind of slim, young attractive types he uses as replacements.

Among Newt's many "attractive" qualities is his stance on marijuana. Once again a hypacrite, though he smoked marijuana in his "youth" ie up to and including when he was a college professor, he now thinks there should be a death penalty for anyone smuggling 2 ounces or more of marijuana into the country.

"Newt Gingrich, as Speaker of the House introduced a bill called the “Drug Importer Death Penalty Act of 1996“.  It would have enacted a death penalty for anyone caught smuggling two or more ounces of marijuana into the United States.  Yes, two ounces, not the 67 tons you currently need to qualify for the death penalty**.
