Newt, We Barely Knew You

Which is to say, we knew you all too well:

“Any ad which quotes what I said on Sunday is a falsehood, because I have said publicly those words were inaccurate and unfortunate.”

Of course, you know benefits from Newt flaming out? Herman Cain.

Newt, pictured at right. Would you trust a man willing to agree with Nancy Pelosi?

Tabitha Hale has more about Newt:

Let’s start things off with his support for Medicare Part D. At the time, it was the biggest expansion of entitlements since the LBJ era (has since eclipsed by ObamaCare), and remains one of the largest Republican travesties in recent memory
[. . .]
he’s long been a proponent, like Obama, of forcing us to buy health insurance with an unconstitutional individual mandate.
[. . .]
Next, there was TARP, which motivated many Tea Party activists to take to the streets in the first place. The bailouts were the inspiration for Rick Santelli’s famous rant, and inspired the movement that became the political force it is today.

You really should read the entire thing.

Newt has spent the last decade eschewing pretty much any conservative principals he had in order to stay in the media spotlight. His positions on issues spins faster than a hummingbird in a hurricane. And as Bob Belvedere is found of saying, "Tt's dog track time" for Newt.

This guy said it best:
