Fighting Back works the Gingrich model

This morn­ing I talked about this video

It is a great exam­ple of fight­ing back and Can­di­date Mark Oxner in Fl 27 deserves a lot of credit for real­iz­ing you take ground by going on offense.

In the space of under 24 hours we’ve seen an excel­lent exam­ple of this on the pres­i­den­tial scale.

First we had Nancy Pelosi play­ing the “I know some­thing you don’t know.” game:

Pelosi: “He’s not going to be Pres­i­dent of the United States. That’s not going to hap­pen. Let me just make my pre­dic­tion and stand by it, it isn’t going to happen.”

King: “Why are you so sure?”

Pelosi: “There is some­thing I know. The Repub­li­cans, if they choose to nom­i­nate him that’s their pre­rog­a­tive. I don’t even think that’s going to happen.”

Per­haps Nancy fig­ured this CNN report that Byron York dug up was in the mem­ory hole somewhere:

Newt Being Newt went went straight at em:

There’s almost a level of hys­te­ria about the prospect of some­body who really wants to change Wash­ing­ton,” said Mr. Gin­grich to host John McCaslin.

I have a sim­ple chal­lenge for Speaker Pelosi…you know, put up or shut up. I mean, I have no idea what she’s talk­ing about. I don’t think she has any idea what she’s talk­ing about, but bring it on,”

And under 12 hours later viola

Later the same day, Pelosi’s office said that Pelosi was refer­ring to the like­li­hood that Gin­grich would win the Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­na­tion and beat Pres­i­dent Obama in the 2012 gen­eral elec­tion, as well as the entire Ethics Committee’s find­ings on Gingrich.

The ‘some­thing’ Leader Pelosi knows is that Newt Gin­grich will not be Pres­i­dent of the United States. She made that clear last night,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Ham­mill said in a state­ment. “Leader Pelosi pre­vi­ously made a ref­er­ence to the exten­sive amount of infor­ma­tion that is in the pub­lic record, includ­ing the com­pre­hen­sive com­mit­tee report with which the pub­lic may not be fully aware.”

As Weasel Zip­pers put it:

Nancy folds like a cheap suit.”

Mean­while while Newt was hit­ting back against Pelosi, con­trast this to Mitt:

CARL­SON: Mr. Rom­ney, what does Nancy Pelosi know if it would be such a bomb­shell as to why Newt Gin­grich couldn’t be president?

ROM­NEY: I wish I knew what that was [laugh­ter]. I’d tell peo­ple what it is right now.

But that’s one of the rea­sons why I’m say­ing that all of the records that were part of the ethics inves­ti­ga­tion, all of the tran­scripts, all of the records have to be made public.

Appar­ently he thought the CNN piece was in a mem­ory hole too, Never mind that William Jacob­son knew the score on Nancy:

Would Nancy Pelosi lie for polit­i­cal gain? You betcha. She accused the CIA of lying to Con­gress about water­board­ing, even though the records showed she was briefed and her prior pub­lic state­ments con­tra­dicted her. She also is a mali­cious per­son who led the charge to demean the Tea Party move­ment as un-​American.

That didn’t mat­ter. Romney’s increas­ingly des­per­ate cam­paign raced toward the charge like a man in a desert run­ning toward a mirage…

with the same result.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s office on Wednes­day said the minor­ity leader doesn’t have any dirt on Newt Gingrich.

So bot­tom line, while the MSM tells us that Newt is une­lec­table, the GOP is head­ing toward defeat and Obama’s SOTU speech will cement elec­tion 2012 that same Newt, in less that a full news cycle, Turned the Pelosi attack pushed by the MSM into an embar­rass­ing defeat for Pelosi AND Romney.

How can this be? Sim­ple. It’s because like can­di­date Oxner in FL-​27, Gin­grich refused to empower the MSM nar­ra­tive and instead fought back on his own terms expos­ing the weak­ness and irrel­e­vance of the MSM and Pelosi.

In other words…


He Rode Right Through them, ’cause they’re demor­al­ized as Hell!

It’s that simple.

Update: The fact that Newt fights doesn’t mean he fights accord­ing to Hoyle

So now Newt’s defend­ers will have to explain to us once more why Gin­grich is a trust­wor­thy con­ser­v­a­tive, after his cam­paign aired Spanish-​language radio adver­tise­ments accus­ing Mitt Rom­ney of being “anti-​immigrant”:

and it looks like the he is sub­ject to the same rules of attack and retreat:

We respect Sen­a­tor Rubio tremen­dously and will remove the ad from the rota­tion. We will replace it with a pos­i­tive mes­sage that will con­tinue to focus on draw­ing con­trast between our clear vision on the issues impor­tant to the his­panic com­mu­nity and our opon­nents lack thereof,” Gingrich’s Florida cam­paign chair­man, Jose Mal­lea, said.

Exit ques­tion: Why is the GOP estab­lish­ment less shy about counter-​attacking when the tar­get is a mem­ber of the GOP than it is about attack­ing democ­rats? Inquir­ing minds want to know!

This morning I talked about this video

It is a great example of fighting back and Candidate Mark Oxner in Fl 27 deserves a lot of credit for realizing you take ground by going on offense.

In the space of under 24 hours we’ve seen an excellent example of this on the presidential scale.

First we had Nancy Pelosi playing the “I know something you don’t know.” game:

Pelosi: “He’s not going to be President of the United States. That’s not going to happen. Let me just make my prediction and stand by it, it isn’t going to happen.”

King: “Why are you so sure?”

Pelosi: “There is something I know. The Republicans, if they choose to nominate him that’s their prerogative. I don’t even think that’s going to happen.”

Perhaps Nancy figured this CNN report that Byron York dug up was in the memory hole somewhere:

Newt Being Newt went went straight at em:

“There’s almost a level of hysteria about the prospect of somebody who really wants to change Washington,” said Mr. Gingrich to host John McCaslin.

“I have a simple challenge for Speaker Pelosi…you know, put up or shut up. I mean, I have no idea what she’s talking about. I don’t think she has any idea what she’s talking about, but bring it on,”

And under 12 hours later viola

Later the same day, Pelosi’s office said that Pelosi was referring to the likelihood that Gingrich would win the Republican presidential nomination and beat President Obama in the 2012 general election, as well as the entire Ethics Committee’s findings on Gingrich.

“The ‘something’ Leader Pelosi knows is that Newt Gingrich will not be President of the United States. She made that clear last night,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement. “Leader Pelosi previously made a reference to the extensive amount of information that is in the public record, including the comprehensive committee report with which the public may not be fully aware.”

As Weasel Zippers put it:

“Nancy folds like a cheap suit.”

Meanwhile while Newt was hitting back against Pelosi, contrast this to Mitt:

CARLSON: Mr. Romney, what does Nancy Pelosi know if it would be such a bombshell as to why Newt Gingrich couldn’t be president?

ROMNEY: I wish I knew what that was [laughter]. I’d tell people what it is right now.

But that’s one of the reasons why I’m saying that all of the records that were part of the ethics investigation, all of the transcripts, all of the records have to be made public.

Apparently he thought the CNN piece was in a memory hole too, Never mind that William Jacobson knew the score on Nancy:

Would Nancy Pelosi lie for political gain? You betcha. She accused the CIA of lying to Congress about waterboarding, even though the records showed she was briefed and her prior public statements contradicted her. She also is a malicious person who led the charge to demean the Tea Party movement as un-American.

That didn’t matter. Romney’s increasingly desperate campaign raced toward the charge like a man in a desert running toward a mirage…

with the same result.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s office on Wednesday said the minority leader doesn’t have any dirt on Newt Gingrich.

So bottom line, while the MSM tells us that Newt is unelectable, the GOP is heading toward defeat and Obama’s SOTU speech will cement election 2012 that same Newt, in less that a full news cycle, Turned the Pelosi attack pushed by the MSM into an embarrassing defeat for Pelosi AND Romney.

How can this be? Simple. It’s because like candidate Oxner in FL-27, Gingrich refused to empower the MSM narrative and instead fought back on his own terms exposing the weakness and irrelevance of the MSM and Pelosi.

In other words…


He Rode Right Through them, ’cause they’re demoralized as Hell!

It’s that simple.

Update: The fact that Newt fights doesn’t mean he fights according to Hoyle

So now Newt’s defenders will have to explain to us once more why Gingrich is a trustworthy conservative, after his campaign aired Spanish-language radio advertisements accusing Mitt Romney of being “anti-immigrant”:

and it looks like the he is subject to the same rules of attack and retreat:

“We respect Senator Rubio tremendously and will remove the ad from the rotation. We will replace it with a positive message that will continue to focus on drawing contrast between our clear vision on the issues important to the hispanic community and our oponnents lack thereof,” Gingrich’s Florida campaign chairman, Jose Mallea, said.

Exit question: Why is the GOP establishment less shy about counter-attacking when the target is a member of the GOP than it is about attacking democrats? Inquiring minds want to know!
