Jennifer Rubin at The Washington Post has a post today in which she contrasts Mitt Romney’s non-pandering to the Jewish community with Newt Gingrich’s supposed pandering.

She highlights Jonathan Pollard, an American convicted of spying for Israel, and whether he should be granted clemency.  She quotes Romney as saying:

Thomas Sowell has an interesting column today pushing back against the demonization of Newt.  It’s not an endorsement, but it sure sounds like Sowell is not liking all the hate being directed Newt’s way (h/t jeannebodine in the Tip Line):

Did Gingrich ruffle some feathers when he was Speaker of the House? Yes,...

Why do Republican politicians go on Letterman?  I know it’s good exposure, but it’s exposure that always comes with a price.

Letterman always makes the Republican look bad and weak.  I said it when

Newt Gingrich wants to restore a balance between the branches of government, and address what a lot of people see as an imperial judiciary.

His white paper lays out a variety of mechanisms, most of which are not controversial.  One in particular, that Congress should subpoena judges in rare circumstances to explain judicial...

I guess I’m upsetting some people with my vigorous posts regarding Newt.

Robert Stacy McCain says I’ve “hopped aboard the Gingrich bandwagon and [am] savagely lashing Newt’s critics.”  Actually, the bandwagon jumped on me, because my endorsement predated Newt’s surge, if only by a few days.

“Bombastic” is Ann Coulter’s favorite new word in attacking Newt Gingrich.  (irony noted)

Coulter was on O’Reilly last night lambasting Newt as “bombastic” with no policy accomplishments.

Mark Levin, no supporter of Newt, has come to his defense, much as Andrew McCarthy

As I pointed out the other day, National Review demeaned itself and its many talented writers by going overboard in its attempt to demonize Newt Gingrich, including a cover which should live in conservative infamy.

Newt as crazy outer-space martian is what passes for analysis at what once was, and in many...

You know I have a big problem with Michele Bachmann making statements which are not supported by facts and then repeating them endlessly.

Her campaign is up to much worse in South Carolina, where her local campaign manager has suggested that the Gingrich campaign has paid off Tea Party leaders for support.  Politico...

We should defer to the judgment of people who run a cover like this?

National Review is off the rails and off its rocker.  And plenty of their writers are having a good laugh about it on Twitter today.

I don’t think Newt really has any choice but to stay positive.  Deep down I think it’s what people want, and in any event, he doesn’t have the money to flood the airwaves in Iowa that way Paul and Romney’s SuperPAC are doing.

My worry? Positive may be what people want, but negative...

There has been plenty of griping and talk by Tea Partiers that if Romney is the nominee, they’re staying home in November.

As part of his campaign to paint Newt Gingrich as crazy, Mitt Romney has focused on Newt’s statement that the Palestinians were an “invented” people.  Romney argued at the Drake University debate Saturday night that Newt had used “incendiary words” which would “create extraordinary tumult” and said “I’m not a bomb thrower, rhetorically or literally.”
