Gingrich To Dems: Don’t You Dare Use What I Said In Ads

TPM’s Benjy Sarlin:

Newt Apologizes To Paul Ryan, Begs Democrats Not To Use His Own Quotes In Ads
Benjy Sarlin | May 17, 2011, 11:30PM

Newt Gingrich’s walk back tour reached its zenith Tuesday night, as Gingrich personally apologized to Paul Ryan for dismissing his Medicare plan as “right wing social engineering.” In an added twist, Gingrich claims that the merest mention of his extensive condemnation of Ryan’s budget from Sunday’s Meet The Press by Democrats is now out of bounds as a result.

“Any ad which quotes what I said on Sunday is a falsehood, because I have said publicly those words were inaccurate and unfortunate,” he told FOX’s Greta Van Susteren. “”When I make a mistake, and I’m going to on occasion, I’m going to share with the American people that was a mistake becuase that way we can have an honest conversation.”

Democrats have been giddy — and Republicans terrified — at the prospect of new ads and messaging featuring Gingrich’s attacks on the Ryan budget as “radical change from the right” and “too big a jump” for America. Newt’s comments to FOX suggest that he’s well aware of what’s coming.

Heh. Heh-heh. Ha-ha-ha. Ha-ha-ha-ha-BWAHAHAHAHAHA!! 😈

AFTERTHOUGHT: So… can the Democrats, when handed a priceless gift on a silver platter, manage to use this without fucking it up? Stay tuned…

    Given the way the Dems have been of late, I’m sure they’ll find a way to mess it up! The left doesn’t seem to be too good at street fighting these days. Am a cynic? You betcha!

      Kay, with today’s Dems, you just never know. Fifteen years ago I’d have proclaimed myself a Democrat-until-death, but with the new “improved” DP, I can’t even stick with them solidly in 2012. Good thing I have a string of expletives at the ready… 🙂
