    knowing what we know now? frankly its way out of line, its a borderline lie.

    interesting though in that I might wager the ranch that brokaw never made any type of restitution ala clearing Gingrich on air, when the irs made their ruling.

    Its also interesting in seeing this, then brokaws non reading out of say bill Clinton or similarly highly posted dems....etc.....


    why is the actual ad not linked?:eusa_eh:is it in there? I could not find one...

    It's history.

    What are the grounds for objection?

    If there ever was an "if Romney doesn't do it, Obama will" example, this is it.

    and gingrich was cleared by the IRS in 1999. I don't like him, but thats that. Romney using this is over the line imho.

    Bingo for true girl.

    Proctology 101.

    Whoever makes it thru will be seriously a winner.

    Now I've been playing on the other side. I'm not liking how they are going to try to ruin Mitt.

    I'll give you data and links tomorrow. They are evil. I just want to be very sure of every link I can give you.

    Ok I'll track this down but honest, what I have been on all day is these hits on Newt are not from the Romney camp.

    You've got Axelrod. Axelrod the bastard is trying to make it look like Romney is doing all this shit.

    Give me a few hours.

    I'm certainly biased by how much I don't like Newt.

    He calls Mitt anti-immigrant, pulls the ad but stands by the comment in interviews and debates. Mitt plays an unedited historical record about a time when Newt embarrassed the party. Right now I'm not feeling sympathetic toward Newt. Maybe after reflection or after more discussion in this thread I'll see it differently.

    Look this is an Axelrod game. He's blowing his load sooner rather than later though. I love it.

    He's jaked early.

    And it's never Obama. He's been the pussy whipped idiot from the get go. At least JFK knew he was supposed to be the stooge.

    Romney is a cheap shot artist, to be sure.

    On the other hand, Gingrich made some pretty damning admissions AT THAT TIME which cleared the path for the House vote against him.

    It's one thing to object to a false or misleading ad campaign.

    It's a little more difficult to make a case against an ad campaign based on -- the truth.

    It is certainly likely to be an EFFECTIVE ad by Romney. In fact, it could be the final straw.
