Potential Gingrich "Blowback" Over New RP Attack Ad?Submitted by JonathanJAT on Thu, 12/01/2011 - 13:47
As I'm sure you all know by now, everyone in the political world is talking about how Ron Paul's new attack ad completely and utterly destroys Newt Gingrich.
First of all - spread this EVERYWHERE you can, people. Newt Gingrich's success is the single greatest threat to Ron Paul winning the nomination. That is a fact. Why? Because the current GOP will never elect Mitt Romney, and he's the only other "frontrunner" at this point. Mitt Romney is the epitome of a flip-flopping politician who will do absolutely anything to get elected. EVERYBODY knows this. And even going by the things he does say, the GOP at this point is way too conservative for him. It's too heavily influenced by the Tea Party for a moderate like Romney to go anywhere.
So, if we take down Gingrich, the nomination is essentially Paul's. I'm sure the campaign knows this, hence the ad.
I fear possible blowback from the Gingrich campaign. Last time when Paul attacked Perry, Perry responded. Luckily Perry's an idiot so he responded with a 1988 letter by Paul which says he was too conservative for the GOP, which can only look good in the GOP of 2012. However this ad is muchhhh much more devastating to Gingrich.... And Gingrich is much smarter than Perry is.
So, when and if Gingrich responds, what do you think he'll say?
I'm thinking it's inevitable that this will come up in the next debate... The media LOVES this drama and it's too good to pass up. One thing Gingrich might bring up is that the campaign mentions his disagreement with Paul Ryan, when Ron Paul was one of only 8 Republicans to vote against Ryan's budget plan. That can be perceived as hypocritical.
What do you people think? Is this a legitimate concern or am I just being paranoid?
