beware the old newt is back


Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission accusing Gingrich of illegally using campaign funds for his personal use.

The complaint is based on a recent Washington Post report, which found that Gingrich had charged his campaign $42,000 for the use of his lucrative personal mailing list. The Post reports that Gingrich paid himself for the list, even as the campaign was struggling to pay off nearly $1.2 million it owed to other vendors.

1. the old newt


House Banking Scandal: Newt Bounced 22 Checks
Remember the House Banking scandal, where so many congressmen wrote rubber checks on government money? Newt hopes you don't, because he bounced 22 himself, which almost cost him reelection in 1992. His vote for the secret House pay raise, and the chauffeur who drove him around Washington in a Lincoln Town Car, didn't help. oh my his claim to be a conservative is based on the back room deals he pulled in the 90's - but his scheme unraveled as his capers unfolded!

2. newt the toot-ah wish that was mine but the media owns it

newt is glib and a gifted con-artist!

Newt Gingrich is smarter than you. Don't feel bad, he's smarter than everybody else, too. Just ask him. Or look at what he's done.

Repeated adultery with younger women, while each successive wife was seriously ill --- and all along Newt was proclaiming himself a champion of family values. Attacking mortgage lender Fannie Mae, while secretly getting paid $1.6 million as a lobbyist for them and claiming he was a "historian," not a lobbyist. Attacking Congress for gridlock, when personally led the destruction of Congress' civility and traditions in the 1980s as a "bomb-thrower" and evil genius tactician. (Seriously, look it up.) A half-million charge account at Tiffany's Jewelers for his latest, youngest woman (that we know of).

All this for 30 years running, and he's still a leading contender for President as a religious, morally crusading Republican? Yeah, he's smarter alright. As a historian, he knows Americans forget anything over 5 years old, and the press will ignore your long-term character traits if you give them any new, shiny story to report.

man this guy is no more conservative than any con artist!

3. more newt

Draft Dodger:
Though he relentlessly pushes military spending and talks like a bigtime hawk, Gingrich avoided the Vietnam War through a combination of student and family deferments. (He married one of his teachers at age 19.)

how many of these so called hawks never served? newt is a disgrace to everyone that has!

4. the real newt starting to appear yet?

family values =conservative claims(they like to campaign on this=talk and fact seldom add up)


Family Values? Pressing Wife for Divorce in the Hospital:
"He walked out in the spring of 1980.... By September, I went into the hospital for my third surgery. The two girls came to see me, and said, "Daddy is downstairs. Could he come up?" When he got there, he wanted to discuss the terms of the divorce while I was recovering from my surgery." - Jackie, his first wife. One of Newt's daughters from that first marriage, who is also a conservative columnist, recently disputed that story (after Newt co-authored a book with her), saying among other things that her mother Jackie had initiated the divorce and that "the tumor was benign." Of course no one knew the tumor was benign at the time, so I don't know why that is supposed to matter. And CNN recently found court documents that show that Newt did in fact initiate that divorce. In any case, I'm inclined to believe the wife this happened to over the account of her daughter, who was a child at that time.
he left washington one step ahead of the tar and feather gang from his own party!

5. fatherhood and responsibility

good parent=conservative=pays for childrens support!

Dead-Beat Dad:
The hospital visit wasn't the end of it, either. Shortly after the cancer ward visit, Newt stopped paying alimony and child support. Jackie had to take Newt to court to get him to contribute for bills, as utilities were about to be cut off.

this is the real newt=my god don't elect this con artist!
