'...is guilty of lies, desperation and hypocrisy that should make "every American angry."'

Wow. Newt said THIS? Newt? I think 'chutzpah' is the word that best describes this man. His nerve knows no bounds.

Bountiful, Utah

Romney deserves everything that Gingrich is dishing out right now. I am shocked that so many members of the church have been making excuses for Romneys lies, simply because he is also LDS. Just makes me sick.

"There's something about the hypocrisy that should make every American angry."

Pot calling the kettle black...What a piece of work this guy is!

I can't believe Newt can lecture anyone about "lying" after his personal life is placed in perspective. He's in denial. Like the candidate chosen in Nevada to run against Harry Reid, if the Republicans choose Newt they can bank on 4 more years of Obama, which would take this country way, way down. If that happens we might as well start using "Euros" for money.

Isn't it amazing that voters would choose a known adulterer and rail against someone who has been faithful to their spouse and then be fearful of a candidate that actually paid their tithing? My, this country has dropped a long way.

Mitt is the guy who can fix what's wrong, not some Fanny Mae lobbyist. As previous stated, "It's the economy, stu...."

I think whatever Romney comes up with will be multiplied 1000x by the obama admin. There is such a wealth of information on the internet about Newt and all the things he has said and done. You think Romney is not conservative enough well, just read all the things the Newt has said. Progressive anyone?

Kami; are you also shocked that Mitt accepted no salary while serving as Governor of MA and no salary serving as chairman of the SLC olympic committee. This is, I believe, evidence of his character and commitment to public service. I'm not sure any other candidate, and certainly not Newt the Brute, can evidence such ultraistic values.

Few things:

1) None of the Republican canidates have any of the Republican parties confidence.

As exampled by:

**'Iowa vote doesn't resolve GOP search for identity' - By Charles Babington - AP - Published by DSNews - 01/04/12

So, to say that 'X' Republican canidate can 'beat Obama' when, right now it's:

Gingrich, SC.

Santorum, Iowa.

Romney, New Hampshire.

2) WHO, brought us down?

Wall Street Bail out:

**'Bush signs $700 billion bailout bill' - AP - Published by Denver Post - By Tom Raum - 10/03/08


**'Report: Taxpayers still owed $133B from bailout' - By Marcy Gordon - AP - Published by DSNews - 01/26/12

'After the 2008 financial crisis, Congress authorized $700 billion for the bailout of financial companies and automakers, called the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP. About $413 billion was lent. So far, the government has recovered about $318 billion, or about 77 percent of it.'

Draper, UT

Well, if anyone knows about "lies and hypocrisy" it's the Newt; he has spent the majority of his career finely tuning his use of both. This guy is the most delusional, self-serving blowhard to come down the political pike is ages...maybe ever. If the Newt is the GOP's candidate Obama will win by one of the largest margins in history.

Cedar Hills, UT

I don't trust Gingrich. He plays to the audience he speaks to .... as an art. Gingrich is turning into an angry, frumpy old man. Romney looks presidential.

Salt Lake City, UT

@Star Bright
Yeah, Gingrich is progressive, like how he did that TV ad about climate change... nevermind that Romney entered his state into a cap and trade program. Or how about how Gingrich supported insurance mandates... nevermind that Romney instituted one and defends it while Gingrich says he was wrong. Yeah... Gingrich is clearly a progressive.

I'm a progressive and I agree with very little Gingrich is advocating (I do think he has a good immigration policy plan, of course that's one of the few issues I'm not progressive on since I oppose amnesty and Gingrich's plan does not give citizenship to illegal immigrants) so the idea that Gingrich is a progressive is just absurd. It is literally so out of touch with reality that you clearly are just a Glenn Beck listener (since he says that Gingrich = progressive thing all the time) who hasn't bothered to set about and determine what progressives actually advocate. I'll give you a hint... progressives are disappointed that Obama hasn't been left enough in his governing.


Obama deserves everything that Republicans are dishing out right now. I am shocked that so many members of his party have been making excuses for Obama's lies, simply because he is also a Democrat. Just makes me sick.

"2) WHO, brought us down?

Wall Street Bail out:

Yet Pagan opposes Romney for opposing this bailout, so Pagan is really FOR the bailout. Either that or he secretly agrees with Romney (it turns out Romney was right on the issue).

And WHO brought this on us? It's funny that Pagan cites THIS bailout as the cause for our economic woes when Obama signed an EVEN LARGER bill shortly after. Not to mention all the spending he did on top of that! If a guy falls off the cliff, which was more responsible for the fall: the steps taking him near to the edge of the cliff, or the last steps over the edge of the cliff? Your logic suggests the former.

The all telling sign of a fraud and one who is scared, is someone who attacks others in an attempt to hide their own imperfections. Newt is a fraud and is making up lies.

I hope the ads fulfill the intended consequences. Mitt REALLY needs Florida. Should Newt capture Florida as well, I'm wondering if his momentum will be able to stop. However, as much as these ads are necessary and effective, Mitt needs to be equally forceful in his debates, face-to-face w/ his rivals. I believe that's what hurt him most in the SC debates. Newt ran all over him. For all you Mitt non-believers, there's a reason why the Obama campaign is already attacking Romney. They wouldn't like any more than to have to go toe-to-toe w/ Gingrich rather than Mitt.

The Republicans are on the verge of another presidential self-destruction...

RE: ouisc-- "The Republicans are on the verge of another presidential self-destruction..." I sure hope you're wrong, but I certainly see things progressing that way as well.

Newt knows all about lies. And family values.

'And family values.' - On the other hand | 4:35 p.m. Jan. 26, 2012

We already have someone who has family values.

Married, to ONE woman.

He has two wonderful daughters.

And, he's already in the White House.

Tremonton, UT

So Newt (unhinged) says Romney is "desperate, liar, hypocrite.." Wow. So how would we like a President who resorts to name calling and personal attacks when he gets annoyed?

To paraphrase/adapt Shakespeare, "Me thinks the gentleman doth protest too much!"

Newt has only confirmed what many have known; he's erratic and unstable. Oh, and should we really trust a man who has committed Adultery three times (that we know of?) Isn't the very definition of Adultery... a Liar and someone not worthy of trust and living up to a commitment previously made?
