    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

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.

Yeah, so lets all vote for a guy who continuously and always says one thing and does anohter because he said once that he might like an idea that "we" like.

Yeah, that's the ticket!

 It's not that Newt is overweight, he's just one foot too short!

This guy is soft in every last sense of the word:


*Soft in the head to not know he would get caught in his hypocracy. 

*Calls for a Gold Commission..."to consider how to get back to hard money (and perhaps to gold)." Fucking ass.

*And probably a limp dick.


Edit: Limp dicks happen. By itself no big deal. Coupled with all the rest, this dude is a "sorry little sack."

Why must the press take to account a hooker when she struts her stuff? 

I find it very embarrassing for the profession. They are paid to perform and if they lack follow through, well, they can always fake it. We all understand that; a fake is better than a yawn for client's moral. And the voters are no different. 

Never expect your hooker to be common woman, she has to be special, thats part of the american dream, or what would the green back buy? Some socialist type crap. Not having that. Go Newt you're so cute. And nobody expects you to be sincere to boot.

Newt is a newt.   Fuck him.  His pasty complexion and fat ass.  The guy is the ultimate politico; exactly what we don't need to lead this country forward.  And he's a draft dodger or as Ron Paul would say, a "chicken hawk".

Newt and Romney both avoided the draft. Both of them would eagerly send Soldiers off to unneccessary and illegal wars. I'm cool with them sending troops into armed conflict if they want to put their asses right up front along with most of the congress and senate--the military allows gays now, so they could all go. Let them eat lead for a while and see if they would like to come back for some more for their undeclared and unnecessary wars

I'm a Ron Paul guy, BUT

assuming he doesn't make it, whp do you want, Gingrich or Romney?  At least Gingrich is flip-flip-floppin' the right way right now.  Romney?  Well, he can't fucking wait to bail out Europe with money we borrow from China that our children will get to repay the rest of their lives.  So, by all means,


work your damn heart out for Paul, but don't ever forget that Romney is approximately 95 -96% as much of a cross-eyed, cud-chewin' asshole as Obama, beholden to the status quo and the concept of robbing the poor to give to the rich.

Romney is the white Obama. Gingrich is just a pyscho with a Napoleon complex.

Both are losers unless you enjoy your corporate raping, which they will continue with enthusiasm.

At this point Ron Paul looks like a saint compared to any others running. I like a lot of Ron Paul's ideas, I don't like everything.

I like enough to vote for him and realize he won't be able to change everything he'd like to but I'm sure he will be a better president than anybody we've had for the last 40 years at least.

Ron Paul is against SOPA and NDAA as well as the CIA and DEA.  Its a good start.

"I'm a Ron Paul guy, BUT"

Me too.. it's a shame politics is dominated by politicians. Newt over Romney any day.

Romneycare is all I need to know about Willard the Mitt.

At least Newt delivered welfare reform, and his Rebublican House saved the US from unbridled liberal Clintonism and did a lot with the Contract With America. http://www.fas.org/spp/starwars/congress/1996/hdemcnt_001.htm 

Make no mistake, Clinton evolved from a liberal to a centrist pandering liberal  because of Newt's campaign and Contract With America. If it is still possible to save this wreck of a nation, Gingrich is better suited to it than Romney and may be up to the task.

Remember.. Gingrich was conservative when conservative wasn't cool anywhere and he comes from Georgia.

Romney has a hard time acting conservative and comes from Massachussets.

Winning ticket: Gringrich/Paul.

Wet dream: Gringrich/Paul wins 2012 with Republicans taking both houses.. Paul resigns as VP.. Gringrich nominates and gets compelling new VP (with eye on 2016 or 2020). Gingrich nominates and Congress approves Ron Paul for Secretary of the Treasury. SEC/CFTC housecleaning and End the Fed Jihad begins.

It'll never happen but I can dream.

The people who can be swayed by the chorus of hype and lies deserve what they get.  You are just as much a fool as the rest of the dip-shits who whole-heartedly support Baracka-stain or the rest of the ass-hat chumps fiddling with big pharma, ecology, war industries, insurance fraud, stock and commodity manipulation, or the rest of the govermental intrusion, all done at the behest of their banker lords.

My, but you've got a little potty mouth, li'l fella!  I never said I'd vote for Mitt, cause I won't.  But in case you haven't noticed, our presidential choices usually are between "awful" and "worse."  When that happens, we all have a choice to make.  I'm guessing yours will be to pull out your tweezers and magnifying glass and proudly masturbate.

Gingrich has always been a RINO.  He campaigned for Rockefeller to get his CFR badge.  Clinton is also a CFR member.  Newt played the conservatives like a fiddle and screwed us like he screwed his ex-wives.  Newt mentions Reagan in speeched then sucks up to Pelosi. Remember the love fest with that POS Clinton in NH?   

Santorum is 10x better than Newt or Romney.

Ron Paul is the best choice.  I wish it was Rand because he is younger.  He would crush the islamo teleprompter.

Freddie, delusional after a big hit of talk radio, said:

Santorum = Newt = Romney = Obama

Ron Paul is the best choice.

Yes, he is, although I doubt you understand why.

He would crush the islamo teleprompter.

If you vote for Mitt or Newt, you should have your muffuggan head examined. I don't want to be shackled in your fucking chains because of your vote for the status quo (and I use "you" globally towards those Newters and Romnulans). You are my enemy as much as the liberals.
