Gingrich and Perry Blew It
January 11, 2012


BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH:  You know, folks, it is -- (laughing) -- it is amazing.  As I go through the news today, looking at the establishment websites, looking at the conservative establishment, media establishment websites, they're starting to have some regrets about Romney.  Really, they are.  I have two or three examples here, but there are some creeping doubts now about Romney on the establishment Republican side.

Anyway, greetings.  How are you?  Great to have you here.  Rush Limbaugh, middle of it week, hump day, great to have you at 800-282-2882.  The e-mail address, ElRushbo@eibnet.com.

All right, we're now facing, where we are is the final push, final push now to get Romney the nomination.  You have to say that Newt and Perry blew it the last two days.  I don't care what you think, folks, the attacks that they mounted on Romney are not defensible.  You just can't put your name to 'em.  All you can do is remember Bill Clinton.  He was confronted at one point about some crazy attack ads that he was running.  I don't remember specifically which ones, and supporters in the media, "Do you really mean this?"  Clinton said, (imitating Clinton) "Well, you know, you gotta do what you gotta do. I mean, I'm faced here with a problem and I gotta do what I gotta do."  So, hopefully, Perry and Newt are just doing what they think they've gotta do, last straw, do everything.  Maybe there's some hidden reason we don't know that they're trying to demonstrate Romney's un-electability.  All I do know is you can't put your name to defending it, just can't do it.

Yep, both Gingrich and Perry fell over each other trying to be first to sound like "occupy the GOP."

And to prove how stupid Gingrich and Perry were, Gingrich is walking it back already today.

Can you picture the spinning groupies, getting more dizzy by the day? The Whirling Dervish comes to mind.

Nowhere on their checklist for perfect conservitism purity will you find judgement.

That just finished Gingrich, from whom nobody quite wants to hear another "I'm sorry."

Good post, truth.

My how the mighty have fallen.  I may have to walk back past praise I had for Newt's intellect.  It certainly wasn't on display here.  With Perry one could understand.  But, Newt?
