SO WHAT WHO CAYUHS  10:19 am August 9, 2012

Newt Gingrich: It Is Okay For Mitt Romney To Lie If It Is In A Political Ad, Yeah Sure Why Not?

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Does rubber-lipped diamond-humper Newt Gingrich think it is awesome for Mitt Romney to flat-out lie in his advertisement about Obama (not) dropping the welfare-to-work requirements in waivers to the states? Sure it is awesome. It’s a political ad, you can’t expect people to tell the truth when they only have 30 seconds! Did Newt Gingrich feel the same way about whether truth should be optional when it was he who was on the receiving end of Mitt Romney’s fun money? We will give you a guess. Think hard! Think long! Are you ready to learn if you were right? No, not yet? We will wait.

Ready, okay!

Gingrich has vowed to stay “positive” in his quest for the GOP nomination, but has been increasingly on the attack against Romney as his poll numbers have declined, mainly in response to the barrage of negative ads purchased by groups supporting Romney, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas and other of his rivals. A super PAC calling itself Restore Our Future and run by former Romney aides has spent nearly $3 million on ads in Iowa. [...]

At a campaign stop in Marshalltown, Iowa, Gingrich acknowledged that the negative ad blizzard hurt his campaign and “drove me from the 30s to the teens” in the polls. He said of Romney, “Somebody who will lie to you to be president will lie to you as president.”

So … yeah, sounds like he’s totally fine with it! You weren’t expecting that one, were you? You are the worst political prognosticator ever. You should go work for Dick Morris.

Gingrich is still regretting the first time he said "It's OK, baby, I had a vasectomy"

Isn't that because she had chlamydia?

eggsacklywright August 9, 2012 at 10:36 am

Newt's daughter is named Chlamydia?

Actually, the correct quote was: "it's OK, baby, my wife is in the hospital dying"

Anderson, it's not ok to lie to your wife.

Ha ha, just kidding. Anderson, do you see what I did there?

The only truth Romney knows is the feeling he has after having a big bowl of his favorite cereal, Loopholes. It's chock full of fiber, because we all know that Romney is not a regular guy.

Its called 'bounce back' diuretics cause a similar effect.

Terry August 9, 2012 at 10:44 am

The only truth Romney knows is that everyone has been telling him his whole like that he's going to become President and fulfill Joseph Smith's White Horse Prophesy. Unfortunately, he's run into a few people who aren't sticking to the game plan.

mayor_quimby August 9, 2012 at 11:50 am

I'm afraid to Google white horse prophesy,is that a real thing? Please say no.

Terry August 9, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Yep, unfortunately. They think that a time will come when the US Constitution is hanGing by a thread and a Mormon will be elected President, save the US, institute a Mormon based theocracy, and everything will be just peachy.

Biff August 9, 2012 at 11:19 am

Kind of a niche comment.

noodlesalad August 9, 2012 at 10:25 am

Mitt Romney doesn't lie. It's just a problem with the coding of his truthalgorithm.exe file which sorts through thousands of possible realities and then suggests several potential positions which may or may not be ludicrously racist/classist/non-human, and also untrue. His programmers have assured the country that this bug will be patched in the latest update to the 1%OS

PsycWench August 9, 2012 at 10:32 am

I initially read that as "the latest upgrade to the 1%POS" which is possibly what you meant.

HistoriCat August 9, 2012 at 10:36 am

There's no reason they can't both be true!

noodlesalad August 9, 2012 at 10:41 am

I think we can all agree Romney's operating system is a piece of shit.

Harrison Wintergreen August 9, 2012 at 10:55 am

I read that as "Become a Socialist Worker", and figured it for a triumph of targeted advertising.

Ah, if only Socialist Worker could afford that kind of advertising.

PsycWench August 9, 2012 at 10:26 am

It's not lying if it helps you, right?

JustPixelz August 9, 2012 at 1:22 pm

Yes, as evidenced by this transcript:

GIRL:

BOY:
I couldn't take it any longer
Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me
Like a tidal wave

I swore that I would love you to the end of time!

"Restore Our Future?" Time travel notwithstanding, I'm not sure they thought that one through.

widestanceromance August 9, 2012 at 10:45 am

It's doubly stupid, because it's the past they are trying to restore.

BaldarTFlagass August 9, 2012 at 10:51 am

And they want us to believe they are smart enough to run a whole country, when it seems that they can't even run an effective campaign.

widestanceromance August 9, 2012 at 10:54 am

A man what can't keep his lies straight is in no shape to manage lies on an international scale.

NorthStarSpanx August 9, 2012 at 11:19 am

With Mitt's ability to retroactively correct/improve his history, it is a form of time travel.

tessiee August 9, 2012 at 12:49 pm

"they can't even run an effective campaign."

Nor even a three-word-long slogan.

Biff August 9, 2012 at 11:23 am

I've lived through much of this "past" they want to restore, and it totally sucked ass.

tessiee August 9, 2012 at 12:49 pm

by baptizing it posthumously?

SayItWithWookies August 9, 2012 at 11:30 am

Especially since that sort of alludes to French philosopher and poet Paul Valery, who famously said "The future isn't what it used to be." Pretty continentally cynically ironic for a real American, n'est-ce pas?

tessiee August 9, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Mitt probably picked that up in Paris while he was dodging the war he picketed in favor of saving souls.

I see Newt and often have a vision from my childhood. Climbing up to the top of the stove and looking inside the can into which my mother would pour the bacon grease every morning.

Chet Kincaid_ August 9, 2012 at 10:35 am

My Mom used to do that, too. Mint condition 1950s-60s bacon grease, in a period can, is highly sought after on the collectibles circuit.

widestanceromance August 9, 2012 at 10:45 am

Seems surprising that no one has made a hipster beer from bacon grease. If they have, I'd rather not know.

The Double Down in Las Vegas sells a bacon martini. Are martinis hipster, or are they passé?

There's a hipster food cart in SE Portland that sells chocolate covered bacon. IMO, that ruins *two* good things, but apparently, it sells.

No joke, cleaning out my father’s apartment after he died we found a can of spam. No expiration date, but looking at their web site (back in 1999) the label design was late 1950’s. Since he was living in an independent living senior center, I speculate someone who had been living there since it was built in the ‘50s had died and he got it somehow. He didn’t have it when he moved in because I carried almost every item into the place in the early ‘80s. We didn’t keep it. I was tempted, but …

tessiee August 9, 2012 at 12:55 pm

I think spam is like twinkies; made entirely out of chemicals and so it never really expires.

Yes, Anderson did a good job. These deceitful fucks keep going on camera lying, then defending the lies, then explaining the lies, then explaining the explanations and it's going to be such sweet ammo for the good guys (figurative ammo, of course).

Well, if Willard thinks T-Rump is an effective spokesman, his standards are clearly not too exacting. And someone has to reach out to the pseudo-intellectual wing of his horrible, horrible coalition.

You gotta make him sweat a little. And poll in the 20-percent range.

But you also run the risk of Mitt's team smearing your good name like they did with Santorum, Cain, and Newt. All pillars of their communities until Mitt unleashed his attack team on them.

Becks, you know I love you long time, but please, in the name of all things decent and otherwise, DO NOT use the words "long," "hard," "receiving end," and "Newt Gingrich" in the same post.

This conversation was picked up yesterday by the NSA, according to NSA Weekly, a trade publication for all those people interested in the NSA and what the NSA does:

Romney: Gingrich, if you continue to say stupid things, you won't get that Commerce Department post.

Gingrich: Mittens, if you continue to say stupid things, the only thing you'll be president of us is the local Elks Lodge somewhere in Utah, or whatever state you're from.

Romney: You're nothing but a poseur and a doofus. Forget Commerce. Forget anything. You're not getting a Cabinet post, moron.

Gingrich: Good! I make more money with lousy speeches, phony PACs, scamming jewelry at pawn shops, corporate boards, gun endorsements, oil endorsements, Komen endorsements, political consulting for the tea party, and my personal line of beer mugs.

Romney: Hey, can you get me one of those mugs, gratis?

Gingrich: You're worth 240 million, and you can't buy a beer mug? You're worthless.

Romney: So are you.

One of the things I miss most from UK, well, actually my Grandmother's Fry-Up. fried eggs, bacon-good English bacon back-rashers, fried tomatoes, fried bread and kidneys. Delicious! It's a wonder I didn't have a heart condition at age 11.

"fried bread"

I am intr1gued.
How do you fry bread?
Do you drop little wads of bread dough into the hot oil/bacon grease?
Or do you take a slice of already baked bread and fry it in the frying pan, like french toast?

We make zeppoles by deep-frying bread dough; if you live in NYC, you've probably already tried them. Good on the lips, then sink to the bottom of your belly like the Titanic.

Limeylizzie August 9, 2012 at 1:04 pm

It has to be white bread, preference would be Mother's Pride-UK equivalent of Wonderbread, cook the bacon first and then just drop in a couple of slices of bread turn when browned. Easy! Delicious! Greasy!

widestanceromance August 9, 2012 at 1:18 pm

"Easy! Delicious! Greasy!" have been used to describe me, too.

Newtie is taking one from the Mormon missionary handbook which OKs lying to a prospective convert if it brings them to the truth of Joseph Smith. Lying is a Mormon's greatest tool. Can anyone say "Prop 8"?

For a second there, I thought you wrote Moonies.

Nostrildamus August 9, 2012 at 1:20 pm

spent nearly $3 million on ads in Iowa

For that, you could buy every voter a choice Iowa hooker.
Or a pig.
But I repeat myself…

Gingrich is just speaking from personal experience: it's impossible to open your mouth, have words come out for a whole 30 seconds, and not have at least some of those words be lies.

grandinquisitor August 9, 2012 at 3:02 pm

It's not a lie if the check you wrote for the ad bounces.

"diuretics"

You read that Scientology stuff?

Scientology causes you to bounce on couches.
