Sound Bites: Palin and Cain Back Newt; Republican Establishment Rips Newt — Meanwhile, Democrats Still Want Romney
So it’s just all over the place out there — and again, I didn’t know that in ’68, that Gingrich was a Rockefeller Republican. I only learned that last week when I heard the sound bite, played the sound bite. But my memory is that there was nobody defending Ronald Reagan like Gingrich was in the eighties in those special orders. That’s my memory. All this other stuff is stuff that I didn’t know ’til now. And, of course, some people would question Buchanan now. I mean, nobody is clean and pure as the wind-driven snow when they come forth with these assessments of everybody. I think it’s all feeding into this monster that the voters are out there saying, “Enough of this! And I’m gonna tell you: If you people who keep up all this negative conservatism, we’re gonna vote against you.”
I wouldn’t be surprised if Newt does a lot better tomorrow in the Florida vote than what the polls indicate. (interruption) What are you laughing at in there, Snerdley? (interruption) Oh, of course, I know. I’ve seen the Romney ad. Reagan didn’t know who Newt was, only mentioned him once in a while in the Reagan diaries. I don’t care about any of that. All I know is what I saw Newt do! They’ve got it out there now that Newt was against repealing the Fairness Doctrine in 1987. Do you know that? I got that e-mail last night. I forget who. But Newt was against repealing the Fairness Doctrine 1987. (interruption) Yeah. It’s what said, that opposed Reagan on that. I did not know that, for crying out loud — and I still don’t know if it’s true! That’s one of the things about all this stuff flying back and forth is you have no idea whether any of this is true or what of this stuff is true. But the Fairness Doctrine is kind of important to me. The Fairness Doctrine being repealed is what made this program possible.
