Looks like Newt has someone else to tie to Saul Alinsky

Newt Gingrich has been going after Obama pretty hard on the Saul Alinsky connection. Mitt Romney will have a much tougher time of it in light of these photos. Mitt's dad, George, is seen meeting with Alinsky in 1967.

In fact, it's not just that the two men met but that George wanted to give legitimacy and voice to Obama's ideological hero.

Remember when Hillary attempted to nail Obama in a debate over his connection to Bill Ayers? Obama one-upped her by pointing out that her husband pardoned two Weather Underground members. This may not be as bad as that but the optics certainly can't be good.

Via Buzzfeed:
"I think you ought to listen to Alinsky," Romney told his white allies, according to T. George Harris's 1968 book "Romney's Way."

‘It seems to me that we are always talking to the same people. Maybe the time has come to hear new voices," he said.
Perhaps those words may be worse than the two men meeting. Nonetheless, George and Saul looked to be a little too chummy.

Video: Newt Vindicated by....CNN?? 1999

Newt Gingrich resigned from Congress in 1999 amid the political controversy surrounding ethics charges that involved a college course he taught. Democrats - including John Lewis, who is seen in this video report - charged that Gingrich violated IRS laws by using that course to push a political agenda. In this CNN report, the likes of which you just will not see today, Gingrich was found completely innocent and the CNN reporter emphatically underscored the point at the end.

For all of Gingrich's goof-ups, this makes him look extremely good.

Oh, the irony. Courtesy of CNN, the same network John King works for. Like this report from 1999, King helped Gingrich win in South Carolina.

More irony... The Democrats charged Newt with something they've practically mastered in the years since. In psychology class, that's called projection.

Newt Pledge: Overthrow Castro Regime

Gotta admit, after three years of watching an administration cater to South and Central American thugs, it was a bit refreshing to at least hear someone at this level offer some counterbalance.

Via Newsmax:
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich vowed Monday night that as president he will "overthrow the regime" of Fidel Castro.

Responding to a question by Brian Williams during the NBC debate in Tampa about U.S. policy toward Cuba, Gingrich said he would press for a "Cuban spring," much like the Arab spring sweeping the Middle East.

"We will not tolerate four more years of this [Castro] regime," Gingrich said.
There is a reason Gingrich would say such things in Florida. The overwhelming majority of Cubans who fled Castro, along with their descendants, passionately agree with the sentiment.

Video: Carney asked about Saul Alinsky, avoids question

This is precisely why Newt Gingrich's repetitive attacks on Barack Obama for the latter's ties to Saul Alinsky are so effective. It generates discussion among the media. In this case, Fox's Ed Henry asks White House Press Secretary Jay Carney about Gingrich's charges and gives Carney the opportunity to confirm or deny them.

Carney did neither; he obfuscated and it showed weakness in the administration.

It's clear that by avoiding the question, the truth isn't meant to be known.

Alinsky is Obama's achilles heal.
