What is going on in the Republican Party?

Mike Huckabee claims that Newt is using a clip from Huckabee in 2008 out of context because Huckabee was not referring to Mitt Romney, but in fact Huckabee obviously was referring to Romney.

Here’s the video of Huckabee voicing his objection (the discussion starts...

One of the videos linked by Drudge, of Newt supposedly bashing Reagan while talking about George H.W. Bush running in 1980, is misleadingly edited.

Dan Riehl has the details and the more complete video:

Politico’s homepage top headline is The right drops a bomb on Newt featuring photos of Ann Coulter, Tom DeLay, Elliot Abrams and Matt Drudge.

Just like in December, the rise of Newt has caused panic in Republican circles.

In December the charge was led by National Review, and now it’s being led by Matt Drudge, as...

There is something truly obscene about the full blown assault on Newt Gingrich’s strong Reagan conservative history from and on behalf of Mitt Romney, who unabashedly ran away from the Reagan legacy and conservative principles in his 1994 Senate campaign and 2002 gubernatorial campaign. Truly obscene.

The latest iteration comes from Elliott...

Mitt Romney’s key debate line of late is that Newt resigned in disgrace over ethics charges. It’s even featured in the most recent Romney advertisement (not his SuperPAC) running in Florida.

There’s something Nancy Pelosi knows that no one else who was involved in the congressional investigation of Newt in the 1990s knows?  (BTW, this Byron York column on how politicized and wrong the ethics charges against Newt were is a must read.)

Not even any of the anti-Newt Republicans from the 1990s who have spoken out against...

This to be helpful to Newt not so much because it will change a particular vote, but because it adds to a helpful narrative for Newt and pushes back against the “erratic” meme being pushed by Romney and Santorum.

Having successfully shut down scrutiny in the primaries (but not the general election) of his Bain record with unfounded cries of “Newt’s attacking capitalism and free markets,” Romney is back to what started it all, t...

Mitt Romney’s campaign is in trouble.  The trouble is not just the South Carolina vote count.  Romney’s internal polling almost certainly also showed that he was behind in Florida, as public polling released today reflects.

More worrisome for Romney is a growing chorus of doubters within the Republican establishment and conservative media who...

Rick Santorum disqualified himself last night at the debate by his response to John King’s question to Newt about the ABC News interview with Newt’s ex-wife.

The issue was more than just another issue, whether it was the Newt-Freddie consulting, Romney’s tax returns, or Santorum’s election loss in PA.  The ABC assault on...

Last night ABC News aired the much ballyhooed interview with Marianne Gingrich, Newt’s ex-wife.

The ballyhoo was not warranted.  The “interview” was not so much an interview as an 8-minute ABC News attempt to portray Newt in an unfavorable light interspersed with very short clips of Marianne.

A prime example was Brian Ross...

John King started the night with a question about Newt’s ex-wife’s interview in which she alleged Newt sought an “open marriage.” Newt answered the question eventually with a denial, but used the oppoturnity to give King a smackdown which will be remembered for a long time.

I was wondering when someone would bring out the Mike Huckabee line from the 2008 campaign, when he was attacked by Romney much the way Romney attacked Newt in this election cycle.

Romney always starts it.  He did it in Iowa in December 2007 against Huckabee and McCain,  and in Iowa 2011...
