    Newts spending about 3 mill on adds going after Romney for his job killing career at Bain Capital. I'm sure someone can find the ad but.....

    Is Newt against what Romney did at Bain? Because while he complains I don't believe there are any conservatives (including Newt) who are against companies like Bain. Are they? I thought Newt would like the free market but the ads suggest...he...disagrees?

    I think Newt and others should leave Romney alone. Let him rise or fall on his own merits and not the result of attacks from within his own party. Stupid, vindictive actions coming from people I respected very highly until yesterday are going to come back and bite them and the door will swing widely open for Obama, for 4 more years. :dev3:

    Planting even more doubt in the minds of conservatives and independents, against a political idealogy you want to see succeed, will backfire, in my opinion.

    Desperately lashing out now is not going to work for Newt. After all his "I won't go negative" talk it makes him look unsteady. And doing it from his diminished position now only highlights his lack of strength. And he doesn't have the funds to keep it up. And it's too late for him anyway.

    i think that if mitt is elected republicans are going to be just as disappointed in how he governs as many democrats have been with obama (although i'm not sure too many would admit it). bush ii, obama and romney all govern pretty much the same (it's just WHERE they waste our money that's different).

    This attack, like every other attack against Romney, will fall flat. Voters want someone that can beat Obama. Newt is not that guy. He'd make a good cabinet member, or even VEEP....

    This attack falls flat coming from Republicans who support the actions of companies like Bain. Newt and others are pretending they are against it while secretly wishing t was them. Sorta like the bj Clinton got.
    If Bain called Newt....Newt would be right in the picture with Romney.

    So, Bain was in it to make money. They had corperations suceede or fail all the time. That's the name of the game.

    Newt is obviously a wrecking ball hired by Soros. I'm shocked none of you have figured this out.

    Do you really think anyone was secretly wishing for a bj from that hideous fat chick? Hell, the only reason even a dog like Clinton would go there is..well...look at hillary...
