    Tea Party V. Establishment In 2012 Race: A Battle For The GOP Soul? | Fox News

    Well one candidate has the endorsements of Thompson, Cain, Nancy Reagan, Tea Party groups across the country and Sarah Palin while the other has the endorsement of every neocon rag out there, and Bob Dole and John McCain both of whom are establishment sock pupets and always ready to jump to the RINO tune being played and other RINO stooges like Pawlenty.

    Any thinking conservative should be able to read this writing on the wall and know what to do.

    Did Nancy Reagan really endorse Newt?

    Newt stands for everything the Tea Party opposes. Unless of course, the Tea Party was lying about opposing big government progressives.

    Don't let a smooth talker convince you he is something he isn't.

    Well, no one has ever accused Romney of being a smooth talker, but he is trying to convice us he's something he's not.

    Of course, with Romney, I think his real postion on any issue is so secret, even he doesn't know what it is.

    In 1995 she gave a speech stating that Goldwater passed the torch of conservative leadership to Reagan and now Reagan has passed that torch on to Gingrich.

    Basically it puts the lie to these Romney slanders that Newt despised REagan or that Reagan thought nothing of Newt Gingrich.

    Well, he is more concerned about convincing all of us that whoever else is challenging him in the polls is the anti-Christ. Gingrich was never a Libertarian style conservative, but he is a conservative more along the lines of Reagan, but libertarians dont recognise Reagan as a true conservative either, as Paul discontinued his relationship with the Reagan administration early in Reagans first term.

    As to Gingrich opposing everything the TPM stands for, I dont thinkn you understand the TPM. Its mostly about reducing taxes and little more than that. Many in the group have ideas on other topics, like social issues, libertarianism and so forth.

    But Gingrich is the top choice of TPM people according to the polls, and whatever it is you think should disqualify Gingrich from TPM support, apparently they dont share your view of what the TPM stands for.

    In political terms the fate of the TPOM within the GOP rides on Gingriches coat-tails. If Romney wins it will be played as the defeat of the TPM, which it will be, as the RINO establishment will purge the TPM from every office and position inthe GOP that they can for the next four years until another candidate wins the nomination.

    If you want to know Romney's position on issues, look at what his supporters are saying; he is a social liberal who will try to balance the budget with an austerity budget. If you want to to see the USA go through the riots that Greece and other nations in Europe are going through, then vote for Romney.

    How does it do that? Just because Nancy endorsed Newt doesn't mean that Reagan would have. Didn't Newtie get an honorable mention in Reagan's biography though? Something about him having an idea that wasn't very good. Not much mention for someone you think should get your "torch".

    :lol:

    Obviously you dont know shit about the relationship between Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy, which is par for the course for you.


    I know it is hard for leftwing Alinski ideologues like you to realize that not everyone uses every facet of their life to promote their ideology from a funeral eulogy like the Wellstone funeral to a autobiography like Reagans, but it is true, most people really dont do that.

    He wrote a history about hislife and the major events in it.

    Do you know for a fact that Reagans autobriography only mentions Gingrich once or is this just one more factoid you believe cause you saw it on TV?

    The hatred the left has for Gingrich says more about who they are truly worried about than their lies they repeat on public forums.

    Gingrich is a Rockefeller Republican, not a Goldwater Conservative.
