Gingrich: ‘McCain’s attack on Paul sad’


 Gingrich takes on McCain and calls him sad. Understatement of the year. The Grand Old Party should be declared dead. The word “Old” needs to be replaced with new. As the song says, “Get out of the old road if you can’t lend a hand, cause the times they are a changing. A nice little rant going here. What troubles me is they never talk about Al-alwaki’s son that was blasted away a week after his father was killed while sitting in a  restaurant.

 Gingrich said he was “disappointed” by McCain’s decision to “lecture” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and those senators who joined him in his Wednesday filibuster. “I don’t know what’s happened to John McCain, but I find this very sad,” Gingrich said. “So, who are you with?” Blitzer asked Gingrich pointedly regarding the feud between the Senate GOP’s younger and older members over the Obama administration’s drone warfare program. “The McCains or the Rand Pauls?”

“Well, I’m really disappointed in John McCain, and I’m very saddened by it,” Gingrich replied. “McCain, in his younger years, was a great maverick. He took on his party all the time.”

The idea that he’s now lecturing the next generation because they have the guts to stand up, which is I — I would have thought John McCain we do have applauded them and he would have said, I may not agree with you in detail, but I’m proud of the fact that you’re standing up for your beliefs, you’re fighting.
Gingrich added that Paul was correct to question the Department of Justice’s presumed legal authority to execute and American citizen on U.S. soil without due process via a drone strike.

“I mean, if our Constitution means anything, it means that your government can’t capriciously kill you without the rule of law,” Gingrich asserted. “And it was very clear from the attorney general’s earlier letters that they were reserving the right — remember, we’re not talking about a combatant engaged in fighting against the US. The minute you do that, you lose all your rights.”

    Sometimes Gingrich sounds smart, reasonable, intelligent and in touch-right up to the minute he self-destructs. Really frustrating. At least he’s in reasonable mode here.

      You are on point regarding the self immolation. I think he at least as some gray matter above his shoulders and not a muslim.

    I’d prefer Rand and Rubio over Gingrich. He’s had his share of playing in the mud, meaning, I don’t think he’s the answer.
    Noticed on Drudge, the CIA was sworn in on a ‘draft of the Constitution’ no Bill of Rights, no BIBLE – behind closed doors. One spark of good news though, Rand stated the Filibuster was just beginning! Be nice to have a “Rand WAVE” catch on!

    Has McCain gone senile? Into the first states of Alzheimer’s or the like?

      And the msm will keep trotting him out to prove how irrelevant and out of touch we are. If Romney hadn’t destroyed Gingrich he might well have been president.

    Before our very eyes, we are watching the GOP destroy itself.

    If there is to be a third political party, it needs to get off the ground this very minute. Now! Waiting until 2014, 2015, or 2016 will guarantee a Democratic Party win in 2016.

    McCain once was the young guy who spoke out but now that he is older he doesn’t feel he can be challenged, there is a change in the air within the Republican party and John McCain doesn’t like it.

    Does McCain think the US military can take over the responsibiilities of the FBI? By the way, in my opinion, the Holder letter did nott address the issue of what the government can do if they “think” an American is a terrorist. It only said that if an American “is not” an enemy combantant, they can’t kill him/her.

      On fox this morning, it was reported that only 5 of 11 opinions were given out. So there are six they don’t want us to see.
