    Romney sending John Sununu to attack Newt is a second unexpected Christmas present

    Romney sending John Sununu to attack Newt is a second unexpected Christmas present

    As I noted the other day, Mitt Romney’s new strategy is to send out surrogates to attack Newt.

    Tomorrow it is former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu, a big name in New Hampshire politics but someone whose name is associated with two of the most major conservative failures in the post-Vietnam war history of the Republican Party.

    As Matt Lewis points out, Sununu holds a grudge against Newt because Newt tried to stop George H.W. Bush from breaking his “no new taxes” pledge:

    With former Speaker Newt Gingrich surging in the polls, Mitt Romney has finally decided it’s time to go on the  offensive. One of the men Romney has lined up to attack Gingrich is former New Hampshire Gov. John  H. Sununu. The feud is not new.

    As a former chief of staff to President George H.W. Bush,  Sununu has a grudge against Gingrich — who fought Bush’s budget deal that  included raising taxes.

    Here’s an excerpt from a 1990 Fred Barnes article that describes a meeting for Bush’s  re-election efforts:

    Sununu attacked congressional Republicans for abandoning the president. House Republican whip Newt Gingrich, who led the opposition to the budget deal, wasn’t invited to the meeting. But he was on Sununu’s and [former OMB director Richard] Darman’s mind. “You could see the Newt chip on their shoulders,” said one Bush adviser. “It was a strikingly bad discussion. The death embrace [of Sununu and Darman] grew tighter.”

    There’s more.  As Lewis points out, Sununu’s other claim to fame is that he convinced Bush to nominate to the Supreme Court a New Hamphire state court judge who Sununu assured Bush was a rock solid conservative notwithstanding indications otherwise.  That person was David Souter.

    Sununu serving as surrogate Romney attack dog is the second unexpected Christmas present for Newt after Nancy Pelosi’s failed blackmail attempt, because it shows that all the wrong people hate Newt for all the wrong reasons.

    Update 12-8-2011 — More on Sununu’s grudge against Newt for fighting H.W. Bush’s breach of his “no new taxes pledge” here.

    I think that Newt (or any of the other candidates who might want to seriously damage Romney) have just been handed the sword. A simple TV ad is all that is needed, simple visual overlays of Romney, Sununu, The Supreme Court building, Justice Souter, and a couple of shots regarding very liberal decisions with audio that goes something like this:

    John Sununu is out there vouching for Mitt Romney and attacking Newt Gingrich’s Conservative principles. Really? Are we REALLY going to listen to Sununu, a man who vouched for David Souter as a “Conservative?” The same David Souter who was such a Liberal Socialist on the Supreme Court that it inspired the rallying cry amongst Conservatives and Republicans alike of “NO MORE SOUTERS.”

    No more Souters, no more RINOs. No more Mitt Romney.

    [fade to black, end commercial].

    Yes, I’m taking a little liberty with the “Socialist” shot, but, as discussed elsewhere, the populace has lost sight of the “liberal” label confusing the idea of classical liberalism (which is now libertarianism) with modern liberalism (which is Socialist-Statism).

      Romney has now added surrogate attack dog Jim Talent, former congressman… who once supported Gingrich on the precise same issues he now attacks on Romney’s part.

      Attack dogs, yes, but without teeth. Romney’s going to gum Newt to death.

      This just in, Romney viciously attacks Obama:

      “He’s a poopy-butt and his mommy dresses funny.”

        Oh, I didnt hear that one.

        The only one I caught was that song he was signing:

        “Newt, Newt,
        Smells like poop
        was sent down the garbage shoot

        his big fat belly,
        came out smelly
        tell him to go straight to hell-y”

        And I mean, I thought it was kind of cute, but not sure I consider it a real Presidential like move on his part…

    Since energy usage has become the equivalent of harlotry, murder & adultery, energy users are being threatened with the lake of fire by Adam, Eve & the Lord Jesus Christ. I am now married to Anders Behring Breivik 09/20/2011 by the Lord Jesus Christ. I already have children, grandchildren & great grandchildren. Thank you for reading.
    GOD IS NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, BUT THAT ALL MIGHT BELIEVE ON HIS NAME-JESUS.Repent & be baptized! Jesus said, “I am God there is none besides me.” “I am the Way, the Truth & the Life. No man comes to the Father except by me.” “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” “As many as received Him to them He gave the power to become the sons of God the Father even to those who believe on His name.” Jesus’ healing ministry began with adult baptism.
    A New Agenda: We the people need no gas & no electric to have a man child with the spouses of our youth around the world. We shall build homes without electric, without gas, without roofs that exceed 7 & 1/2 feet, & with incinerators to burn garbage, burn dung, burn urine, & burn blood rags so that the entire sisterhood has a man child with the husbands of their youth.
    TAKE MY CONFESSION WITH YOU. I have smoked cigars for 11 years & have no lungs, liver & kidneys at 45 years old. I continue to live through the Lord Jesus Christ as I received the Holy Spirit at 4 years old & was baptized as an adult in 1997. I continue to read my Bible& now use burned dung, urine, blood rags & tobacco butts to make meat offerings to eat. The Old Testament says that burned dung, urine, & blood rags were a part of the laws of Moses. Yes, it was in 2001 while I was driving to Florida that I was talking to the saints in heaven & Isaiah said, “You know that 70 years from now the sun will be dimmed in the sky” Oh, I said, “I don’t know.” I went back over the Old Testament& it said, “The sun shall be dimmed in the sky” & “I shall make them eat the grass of the field.” & “all these things shall come to pass” before theLord Jesus Christ returns.
    4 years ago I was stamping my feet at work over the excessive electric usage & complaining that I didn’t have a husband & children to God the Father. I prayed, kneeling at my bed as to adopting children. Then while I was at work I adopted over 500 children in Swahili (I was born with a spot-was a reject in Hebrew) to find out what day it was. I had been taught prophesy at Wheaton Evangelical Free Church in 1979 & 1980. We went back & forth in time while Governor Blagovich was verifying. We came up with 17 years of darkened sun before July 29, 2081.
    July 29, 2081-the rapture of believers in Christ Jesus-all those who received the Holy Spirit-at the trumpet sound in heaven-1st the dead & then the living ascended to heaven in a twinkling of an eye
    July 29, 2081-2088-the Great Tribulation-God’s wrath is poured out on the earth, Judgment of the Believers in Christ Jesus & the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in heaven
    2088-3057-the Reign of Christ Jesus-(the Bible stated “1000 years” & in actuality it was 969 years)
    3057-3059-the Devil is loosed out of the pit –(the Bible stated “a time & a half” & in actuality it was 1 & three fourths years)-the battle of Armageddon-the nations are drawn together for the last battle in the Valley of Megiddo-the Lord Jesus comes down of a white horse with the words, “King of Kings, Lord of Lords” written on His thigh & a sword comes out of His mouth to destroy all who are in the battle. The bible says that the blood runs a “horses’ bridle high” & birds feed on the bodies.
    3059-the old heavens& the old earth pass away & the new heavens & new earth are created by the Lord Jesus Christ-at this point in time the Lord Jesus says,“Depart from me I never knew you.” to all who died in the battle of Armageddon, to those who took the mark of the beast in their right hand or forehead during the tribulation, to all who died during our time without receiving the Holy Spirit, & to all those who died during the flood of Noah’s day in wickedness. Jesus says, “In this world you shall have trouble, but I have overcome the world.”
    Jesus says, “If we confess our sins He is faithful & just to forgive us our sins & to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Sincerely through Lord Jesus Christ & Wishing You A Merry Christmas, Allison Grace Karalus

    Mormon Romney needs to note that John Sununu is of Arab American Muslim background. You’re not going to make it Romney simply because you’re a wimp but you need to go after this obama turd.
