Dennis Miller: “Newt Gingrich is the Smartest Guy in the Room”

Dennis Miller calls it years ahead of time. Newt Gingrich should be the president in 2012, and Sarah Palin should be his Vice President. That’s the ticket.

Michelle Malkin and the Limbaughs Endorse Mitt Romney

Earlier this week, we saw the new media morph into the liberal republican establishment media as they came out smearing Newt Gingrich in order to help Mitt Romney win Florida. The Drudge Report filled its page with 12 prominent links to stories and columns smearing Newt Gingrich.

The worst part of this coordinated betrayal by the so-called conservative media was that the stories about Newt Gingrich attacking Ronald Reagan, like the one in National Review, were totally untrue. Ronald Reagan’s son, Michael Reagan, even came out to refute the charges, while others thoroughly disproved them.

That was a few day ago, and now the republican establishment media is back. Today, Michelle Malkin joins David Limbaugh (Rush Limbaugh’s brother) in endorsing Rick Santorum. So, why did I say that they endorsed Mitt Romney, and why did I include Rush Limbaugh?

Michelle Malkin, David Limbaugh, and Rush Limbaugh all have extremely conservative audiences. If they came out and endorsed the liberal Mitt Romney directly, they would lose their entire audience. Instead, they have strategically endorsed a conservative candidate, who can’t win, to split the conservative vote and help Mitt Romney. Ironically, Rush actually explained Mitt’s split-the-conservative-vote strategy himself, a few months ago.

So, here we are the day before the Florida primary with Michelle Malkin and David Limbaugh endorsing Rick Santorum. These are the latest poll numbers: Mitt Romney 36%, Newt Gingrich 31%, Rick Santorum 12%, Ron Paul 12%. Does anyone believe that an endorsement from Limbaugh or Malkin is going to bring Rick up 24% to win this? Absolutely not, you would have to be insane to think so.

Maybe they just believe in Rick and want to support him anyway? Nope. Endorsements are always given at a time that will have maximum impact and put a candidate over the top. If they wanted to help Rick, they would wait for a state where he was close to winning.

So, who do these Rick Santorum endorsements actually help? You guessed it, Mitt Romney.

Rush has not endorsed Rick, right? Oh, but he has. In fact, Rush Limbaugh took a page out of the Palin playbook. Just before South Carolina, Todd Palin endorsed Newt, while Sarah didn’t officially endorse anyone. However, we knew it was Sarah’s endorsement too, and the effect was much the same as if she had. Newt went on to win by over 12% and gave most of the credit to Sarah Palin.

That day Rush Limbaugh saw something that he could use, and he decided to copy it in Florida. Still don’t believe me? Well, think about it a minute. When is the last time that you heard about an endorsement from David Limbaugh or Todd Palin?

The Bogus Claim that Newt Gingrich is Liberal

Many in the media, who back Mitt Romney for president, are trying to tell us now that Newt Gingrich is a liberal and Romney is a conservative, but take it from those who know them best. John McCain and Jon Huntsman endorsed Mitt Romney, while Rick Perry, Michael Reagan, Art Laffer, and the Palins endorsed Newt Gingrich.

If you still have any doubts about whether Newt is the conservative candidate, then read the points of his Contract With America for yourself (details here).

This was the agenda for the first day of the new republican Congress:

  • FIRST, require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply equally to the Congress;
  • SECOND, select a major, independent auditing firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of Congress for waste, fraud or abuse;
  • THIRD, cut the number of House committees, and cut committee staff by one-third;
  • FOURTH, limit the terms of all committee chairs;
  • FIFTH, ban the casting of proxy votes in committee;
  • SIXTH, require committee meetings to be open to the public;
  • SEVENTH, require a three-fifths majority vote to pass a tax increase;
  • EIGHTH, guarantee an honest accounting of our Federal Budget by implementing zero base-line budgeting.

This was the agenda for the first 100 days of the new republican Congress:

1. THE FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY ACT: A balanced budget/tax limitation amendment and a legislative line-item veto to restore fiscal responsibility to an out- of-control Congress, requiring them to live under the same budget constraints as families and businesses.

2. THE TAKING BACK OUR STREETS ACT: An anti-crime package including stronger truth-in- sentencing, “good faith” exclusionary rule exemptions, effective death penalty provisions, and cuts in social spending from this summer’s “crime” bill to fund prison construction and additional law enforcement to keep people secure in their neighborhoods and kids safe in their schools.

3. THE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY ACT: Discourage illegitimacy and teen pregnancy by prohibiting welfare to minor mothers and denying increased AFDC for additional children while on welfare, cut spending for welfare programs, and enact a tough two-years-and-out provision with work requirements to promote individual responsibility.

4. THE FAMILY REINFORCEMENT ACT: Child support enforcement, tax incentives for adoption, strengthening rights of parents in their children’s education, stronger child pornography laws, and an elderly dependent care tax credit to reinforce the central role of families in American society.

5. THE AMERICAN DREAM RESTORATION ACT: A S500 per child tax credit, begin repeal of the marriage tax penalty, and creation of American Dream Savings Accounts to provide middle class tax relief.

6. THE NATIONAL SECURITY RESTORATION ACT: No U.S. troops under U.N. command and restoration of the essential parts of our national security funding to strengthen our national defense and maintain our credibility around the world.

7. THE SENIOR CITIZENS FAIRNESS ACT: Raise the Social Security earnings limit which currently forces seniors out of the work force, repeal the 1993 tax hikes on Social Security benefits and provide tax incentives for private long-term care insurance to let Older Americans keep more of what they have earned over the years.

8. THE JOB CREATION AND WAGE ENHANCEMENT ACT: Small business incentives, capital gains cut and indexation, neutral cost recovery, risk assessment/cost-benefit analysis, strengthening the Regulatory Flexibility Act and unfunded mandate reform to create jobs and raise worker wage.

9. THE COMMON SENSE LEGAL REFORM ACT: “Loser pays” laws, reasonable limits on punitive damages and reform of product liability laws to stem the endless tide of litigation.

10. THE CITIZEN LEGISLATURE ACT: A first-ever vote on term limits to replace career politicians with citizen legislators.
