Gingrich on Romney: “Why would you want to nominate the guy who lost to the guy who lost to Obama?”

posted at 4:50 pm on January 16, 2012 by Allahpundit

A cute zinger which Romney will instantly destroy as soon as he reminds people of where this same logic would have gotten us in 1980.

“Why would you want to nominate the guy who lost to the guy who lost to Obama?” Newt asked a standing-room only crowd in Myrtle Beach, S.C…

Gingrich then challenged Romney to a 90-minute, one-on-one debate “anywhere in the state” of South Carolina on Friday night. He said they could sell $10 tickets and donate the proceeds to the charity of Romney’s choosing.

“There is zero chance he’ll take it,” Gingrich said. “He won’t debate and the reason is simple, he can’t defend his record as governor.”

He’s attacking Romney’s alleged electability here, which is fair enough, but I think it’s too late to change public perceptions about that now. Check out these three data points from today’s Fox News poll. Point one: Republican voters are, understandably, placing more weight on electability as the campaign heats up.

Point two: Not only are tea partiers willing to support a nominee who isn’t ideal, they’re considerably more likely to make that compromise than the average Republicans is:

That jibes with what Scott Rasmussen found when he surveyed Florida, where fully 94 percent of tea-party likely voters say they’ll back the eventual nominee versus just 77 percent of Republicans generally who say so. Job one for TPers this year is beating Obama, even if that means holding their noses and voting for you know who.

Finally, point three: The race for the nomination lurches onward but the race to convince voters who’s most electable is well and truly over.

Yeah, granted, Romney’s numbers there are a product of wins in Iowa and New Hampshire and would take a hit if Gingrich upsets him in South Carolina, but he’s almost certainly going to rebound in Florida 10 days later. He leads by 17 points there in the new ARG poll out today and has all the money and organization he needs to bury Gingrich. At worst he’ll go three for four in the early states, including a win in the last and largest of the four, which will leave him still looking like the most electable candidate in the field come Super Tuesday. In fact, go read this depressing Nate Silver number-crunch of Romney’s national numbers claiming that no one who’s had a lead this large has ever gone on to lose the nomination. Exit quotation: “Thus, although Mr. Romney would help himself to lock up the nomination with a win South Carolina, it is not clear how vulnerable he would be even with a loss there. Polls normally become considerably less volatile after New Hampshire as voter preferences become firmer, which means that Mr. Romney’s Republican rivals have already missed their best window to upend him.”

A cute zinger which Romney will instantly destroy as soon as he reminds people of where this same logic would have gotten us in 1980.

…ignoring the complete dis-analogy between Reagan, an immensely charismatic politician and successful 2-term governor of our most important state primarying the incumbent president (even if he literally was “selected, not elected”) and NEARLY WINNING THE NOMINATION and Mittens, a failed 1 term MA governor who couldn’t beat a tired old man who was at current Rick Perry levels of support entering into the 2007-08 primary season and Elmer Gantrybee.

Well, it looks like this pathetic field is staggering to its conclusion. The ensuing crushing of Romney by the Axelrod machine will be instructive, if disgusting.

There is no doubt that Gingrich is very eloquent.

Romney has proven that he can run major complex organizations.
Gingrich has proven that he can run his mouth (without discipline).

Why would we want to vote for somebody who lost to the guy who lost to Obama?

1. He is better than Gingrich!
2. Political conditions have changed. Obama has lost his luster and Romney is Rising.
3. American now understands that they need to elect somebody that knows what they are doing.
4. Newt has committed may gaffs of late. Romney has not. Newt is one gaff away from becoming completely unelectable.
5. A lost last time has no reflection on the contest this time.
6. Reagan lost to Ford in 1976.

No, Romney isn’t the ideal conservative candidate…but, none existed this go ’round, either.

It makes sense now why the GOP is nominating Romney. He’s a breeder (5 kids), he’s with the same woman for 40 years. Cuz that’s what counts as president. How many babies can you make and how many years can you stand to be around a woman before you cry uncle.

Ronald Reagan lost to Gerald Ford in the 1976 GOP primary. Ford lost to Jimmy Carter in the general election. By Gingrich’s logic, does that mean no GOP primary voter should’ve voted for Reagan in 1980?

In their defense, they aren’t clamoring for monarchy.

Can’t make it too obvious, can he?

Roy Rogers on January 16, 2012 at 5:17 PM

I forgot. Any poll that doesn’t agree with your views is a fake poll. My bad. Carry on.

Wait what about Rasmussen?
Obama 44, Romney 43?
Is he working for Axelrod too?

angryed on January 16, 2012 at 5:19 PM

The wimp, like Obama, declined.

And why would Romney want to bother debating someone who came in 4th in Iowa and New Hampshire? Or was it 5th in New Hampshire?

Please don’t fall for this trap being set by liar4life. He’s goading and baiting you. First person to mention Kenya or Muslims makes liar4life the winner.

A Catholic, a Mormon, and a Christian are fishing in a boat…..

Hate to say it, but the Newt has a point. Romney may be the best out of the current bunch, but in 4 years no better options came along. That is sad

If the comment does not fit… don’t wear it. That is why cable news is so successful… CNN & Fox roll out bombastic pundits who say things to rile people up. Some viewers forget that they are not talking directly to them…

Don’t rely on polls like a liberal. It makes you look unclean.

Hey Gunlock Bille Bob,

Tell me again how Romney cut $1.6B from the budget even though spending increased by 30% during Romney’s 4 years as governor?

I love Gunlock Billie Bob math where 1+1=19

I want to know what hell PELOSI was thinking – doing that photo op with Newtron.

FlaMurph on January 16, 2012 at 5:17 PM

I’m guessing something like, “I can’t believe this guy is stupid enough to support my fascist cause!”

EddieC on January 16, 2012 at 5:22 PM

The myth of Romney’s electability is way over rated, but the psychology of herd’s is in effect.

SMACKRUNNER on January 16, 2012 at 5:22 PM

All perfectly legal but it fails the smell test

liberal4life on January 16, 2012 at 5:17 PM

Guess Democrat smellers ain’t so good…FDR, JFK, LBJ
