    Attack ad?

    Attack ad?

    Hard to know if the Democratic National Committee thinks it’s hurting Newt with this, or helping him (video h/t ElectAd).

    I do think they’re trying to frame Gingrich’s image now that he’s the frontrunner, consistent with the DNC’s reaction at the debate last night:

    DONATE

    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.

    You know what, I just figured out what this add is about…

    This IS an attack on Newt – but you have to think about it from the underhanded Democrat angle.

    There are people out there, especially overly-vocal people proclaiming themselves Tea Partiers, who do not support Newt at all.

    So the DNC has two options – run similar adds to the ones everyone else will run anyway. Or…

    Run an add proclaiming him Tea Party and hope it sends those vocal Tea Party types over the edge.

    Its a trap – and just watch, Bachmann will fall for it hook, line and sinker almost instantly.

    They are using this add to divide the Tea Party and the populous. They want us fighting with each-other, and this is the kind of thing which will have us bickering over “what Tea Party is” and, in their eyes, ideally lead to a “Tea Party against Newt” movement.

    Already you are seeing Beck-supporters running around calling him “Big Government Progressive” (based off Glenns idiotic statements) on countless threads – this type of add is geared at taking that to a much higher level.

    I hope others figure this out, and don’t fall for what is clearly bait aimed at having the TeaParty/GOP destroy Newt for Obama so he keeps his hands clean.

    Luckily, 50% of Tea Party people are behind Newt at this time; so it might backfire. But make no mistake, this IS an attack, and its of the most disgusting kind…

    […] were in response to a new DNC ad that paints Newt Gincgrich as a Medicare-ending, Education Department-ending, Social […]

    […] were in response to a new DNC ad that attempts to scare voters away from Newt Gingrich by painting him as as an entitlement […]

    This ad is meant to get newt TEA party support as the dems want him as the nominee. I am sure they have so much baggage on Newt they would love to run against him.I am tired of Newt being held up as the TEA Party savior. I remember him being less than positive about the TEA party back in August 2010 and before that, when he wasn’t running for President. He gave half-hearted support at best and was very much like the rest of the RINO establishment hoping that the TEA party would fall in line or go away and stop rocking the boat.
