Santorum, Romney respond to the news of Andrew Breitbart’s death Update: Newt’s response added

posted at 1:20 pm on March 1, 2012 by Tina Korbe

Days like today remind me that “the conservative movement” is, in fact, a movement. Together, we move toward a culture that is ever freer, fuller and more alive than the one we inherited, a culture that has as its touchstones timeless ideas that need no improvement but that has as its target human flourishing today.

The movement has its contradictions, but it’s unified by an irrepressible energy and optimism that trusts men to take care of themselves and each other and that embraces constitutional republicanism as the best system yet tried for the ordering of the affairs of men. Intuitively, conservatives understand that men, freed from chaos and freed for excellence, can create a culture that affirms truth, beauty and life.

Free, full, alive, irrepressible, excellent … Andrew Breitbart personified much of the best of conservative culture, and his loss is a forcible reminder of the worth of our cause. Who of those who ever met Breitbart — even just once or twice, as I did — would say he wasn’t flourishing? Who doesn’t think the world would be better if more of us were alive with that kind of passion and purpose?

His death demands mourning — from little bloggers like me to giants of the conservative movement like Sarah Palin to GOP leaders like Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney. So, we mourn as a movement.

Rick Santorum said he was “crestfallen.”

“Obviously, prayers go to him and his family and, wow, it’s a big shock,” the former Pennsylvania senator [said]. “What a powerful force. It’s almost — you think of anybody out there who’s more energy, and just, out there constantly, driving and pushing. What a huge loss, in my opinion for our country, and certainly for the conservative movement. My prayers go out to his family. I’m really sorry to hear it.”

Mitt Romney said he was “deeply saddened.”

“Ann and I are deeply saddened by the passing of @AndrewBreitbart: brilliant entrepreneur, fearless conservative, loving husband and father,” he tweeted.

Today, I feel as though both of these men — with whom I never quite agree enough to be able to support either for the GOP nomination without reservations — do actually speak for me. Like them, I’m crestfallen and deeply saddened. My prayers go out to Mr. Breitbart’s wife and children — and to the many journalists, writers and bloggers who will carry his banner forward as a part of the media empire he created.

Update: Newt Gingrich also tweeted in memory of Breitbart.

“Andrew Breitbart was the most innovative pioneer in conservative activist social media in America. He had great courage and creativity,” Gingrich wrote.

What I wrote of Romney and Santorum, I mean of Gingrich, too.

We’ve already Outed this as the Left’s carefully coordinated and desperate Meme du Jour to try and deflect attention away from the many vile things being said today about AB on their many blogs.

F-

PS, if you can find examples of Breitbart going after Kennedy while he was still alive (like your side did with Tony Snow) or even of him going after anyone else like this after they died, we’ll stop laughing at you.

This is great too, from Jason Mattera. Remember this?:

I saw his contempt for the liberal press firsthand. After a 2010 speech I gave to the Conservative Political Action Conference critical of Barack Obama, New York Times reporter Kate Zernike maliciously claimed that I had used “racial overtones.” It was her first dispatch from CPAC. Her “evidence” was so embarrassingly threadbare that she retreated to arguing that I employed a “Chris Rock voice” to mock Obama.

Andrew was also at CPAC, and, shortly after the smear-piece went live, I told him about it. He was just as outraged.

Vintage Breitbart was about to go on display.

“I’m just going to show you what I had to deal with today,” Andrew began to tell the crowd gathered to watch him accept an award.

“Kate Zernike of the New York Times, are you in the room?”

She was in the room indeed.

“You’re despicable. You’re a despicable human being…You came to CPAC to get your prey and here’s your prey: Jason Mattera from HotAir.”

“[You’re] the one that correlated his voice to Chris Rock. He happens to be from Brooklyn. He’s using his voice.”

It was advice he could not heed. It was not in his DNA ever to leave the field. He was the kind of leader the Right needs more of — not a go-along, get-along time-serving functionary but a tactical commander on the battlefield, ever ready to take the bridge, fire the village, and move on to the next objective. If he had a flaw, it lay in not distinguishing between tactics and strategy, and in fighting with targets (Media Matters and a host of other blogosphere hacks and nonentities) who were beneath him.

He did not live to make General, which is the Left’s gain and our loss. But his example lives on. Those of us who were his friends, colleagues, and allies remain standing, in the fight to the end. It is the very least we can do for him.

None such men are running for president, and no such, by far, is in the WH. What a bunch of eunuchs!

(a) you are correct that that is the Palinoid remark that began the back and forth.

(b) it was modified in this late repetition or parody so as to say the opposite of the original Palinoid claim — before anyone had said anything negative about the cult goddess.

(c) We two now agree how the Palinoids inappropriately interjected controversy and unreasonable statements into this thread.

(d) You just haven’t gone back to the beginning to see that it was a Palincult remark that is the culprit and you only remarked upon the late parody.

a capella on March 1, 2012 at 4:56 PM

Andrew left there and went on to hugely exciting things. He founded Big Hollywood and Big Government and BreitbartTV and I’ve lost track of what else. He picked fights for fun and profit, but most of all for patriotism and an honorable sense of indignation at the hubris and hypocrisy of the mainstream media and the Left. We didn’t agree on everything and we differed on style. Hell, everyone differed with Andrew when it came to style.

Smile Andrew. Their hatred and their ways will make them combust.

Okay, I will try that and we will see if it works.

My points are helpful, most of all to Gov. Palin’s admirers for they explain how they might praise her without alienating everyone else on our team.

I came here to see what had been written about the AB and the first thing out of the box: here come the Palinoids not saying that the former Governor spoke well, but rather that everyone else failed to say something presidential.

I still see no evidence that they understand what I am referring to.

Absolutely shocked to hear the news of Andrew Breitbart’s passing. My heart is heavy and my sincere condolences go out to his wife and children. We have lost a giant in the conservative movement and his will be an impossible void to fill. I pray that God comforts the family in a real way and that they are able to feel the prayers and support of those who loved who Andrew was and what he stood for even though we did not personally know him. America has lost a man of undeniable courage, wit, doggedness, and most of all a genuine hero. God grant him peace and a legacy of many happy warriors who have been inspired by him to carry on the fight for right and conservative ideas.

Daikokuco on March 1, 2012 at 1:48 PM

Your point about trying to profit in a time of tragedy or mourning is well taken. That would be unsavory. However, I don’t believe that is what SP was doing.

When friends or family spoke to me at funerals of my closest family members, one of the most comforting things they could do was to recall a time they shared with my loved one and tell me all about it and how they felt, etc. It is part of what is customary when extending sympathy.

The country needs 1000 more Breitbarts” — Limbaugh

Alas, there isn’t even one, for utter shame.

Schadenfreude on March 1, 2012 at 5:34 PM

Andrew recently wrote a new conclusion to his book, Righteous Indignation:

I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and—famously—I enjoy making enemies.

Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands—who knows?—of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.

Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us.

May the Complex spontaneously combust, for dereliction of duty.

Schadenfreude on March 1, 2012 at 5:37 PM

How in the world did a sad occurrence such as Breitbart’s passing become about Sarah Palin? This obsession is why she is not liked by any but a few lonely souls.

Breitbart offered good stuff… I hope they are sure his death is natural… and I hope those videos he talked about are in friendly hands.

I offer my sincere condolences to his poor wife and children. And I hope his children know that their father served a good and noble cause, which may be in it’s last throes or begining a new awakening, depending on the turn of this election.

Some people here should not be allowed on Hotair if the moderators at Hotair were normal and caring human beings but I guess they think it is fun to see everybody insulting each other even on such a day. The one I am talking about are really filthy and repulsive human beings. I hope they will rot in hell. I am sure they will.

After such a tragedy, whatever your opinion – if you are a libtard hater shut the he.l up – pray for Andrew’s family. That’s all we should be doing right now – and yes so sad for us conservatives who lost such a hero of the conservative movement. What a loss. Rest In Peace Andrew.

I think what set the PDSers off was someone copying it in it’s entirety.

Cindy Munford on March 1, 2012 at 4:25 PM

No, it was the claim posted by an enthusiast of the former Governor that the remarks of everyone else were un-presidential.

In other words, a ‘nista wanted to use the occasion to sling mud. After that, Palinoids came out of the woodwork acting as if the response to the original ‘nista provocation had come out-of-the-blue.

Okay while you are so busy analyzing everyone else, you might want to take a look in the mirror. That said, everyone’s remarks stand on their own and if you are proud of yours’ that’s swell.

I don’t think they like it when she is called “quitter,” either. Just something that I noticed. So I’m trying to give up the moniker for Lent or something.

kunegetikos on March 1, 2012 at 6:28 PM

kunegetikos on March 1, 2012 at 6:28 PM

I’m sure they don’t like any of the negative things she is called. I like Gov. Palin a lot but what you think of her is of supreme indifference to me. I wish her fellow supporters would join me in that feeling.

Cindy Munford on March 1, 2012 at 6:32 PM

Cindy Munford on March 1, 2012 at 6:32 PM

Well, over the course of the thread I talked myself into thinking that at least they are enthusiastic! We need that. So that was my peace offering.

Since we are mourning Andrew Breitbart’s passing…

Is that what he would do?

kunegetikos on March 1, 2012 at 6:28 PM

When you use the “Q Word” in just about every single post (as you have done on this thread) you give your critics plenty of ammo.

That repeated use of the “Q Word”, by the way, would indicate that you have nothing better to attack Palin with. If you did, you would not have to keep screeching “Quitter” in almost every post.

Just curious, why all the anger over her “quitting” to begin with? Was it the fact that she was the subject of numerous bogus nuisance lawsuits brought by Democrat Rent-A-Lawyers that kept her from doing her job as Governor?

Del Dolemonte on March 1, 2012 at 6:39 PM

So that was my peace offering.

kunegetikos on March 1, 2012 at 6:36 PM

I can only speak for myself but peace among like minded people is a good thins. With the death of Andrew Breitbart, I don’t think we need to discourage any messengers. Except Frum and Brookes.

I don’t feel comfortable saying what Mr. Breitbart would do, I like freedom of speech. Have you read AP’s post on Andrew? The update on his last hours would indicate that he welcomed disagreement. I’m sure he left the conversation knowing he was correct. The Left has been telling us to shut up through intimidation, I don’t like those tactics. I think they aren’t what America is about. But that’s just me. Or at least I hope it’s not just me.

Your dislike for Sarah Palin is now well documented. And your 5 hour rant suggests you are deeply deranged regarding anything to do with her or her family. For your mental health I would suggest staying away from Palin threads, and when Palin comes up in a thread you should probably ignore it.

idesign on March 1, 2012 at 6:58 PM

Del Dolemonte on March 1, 2012 at 6:39 PM

No, “q” really doesn’t give them ammo. It reminds of the governorship and also of the feint involving a 2012 run and that makes them angry. I am being so nice now. Don’t overstate your case maybe. Since I am giving up the moniker for 40 days and nights. ;-)

Yes. That, his church, his record of voting “present,” all the papers from his Illinois statehouse days disappearing, no school records, every gaffe unreported, complete lack of media interest in his fund raising and his becoming the first Prez since Nixon to opt out of federal campaign finance restrictions (to say nothing of the credit card issues), … one could easily go on. The alphabets and newspapers to the Americans are a major problem.

She was MUCH more experienced. And that is saying something.

Better to say, she had executive experience which he lacked entirely and a case could be made that she was at least as experienced, given the relative importance of executive experience. I shouldn’t overstate the case.

The loser McCain bears much blame, actually. It wasn’t time.

In 2008 everyone here realized it. The difficulty with continuing the argument at present is that he who would be her opponent does now have experience. That is a regrettable fact but a fact all the same.

I probably should not have answered Del Dolemonte’s question, actually. I just tire of the assumption that one is some kind of moonbat freak if one begs to differ.

kunegetikos on March 1, 2012 at 7:31 PM

kunegetikos on March 1, 2012 at 7:21 PM

The sad thing is that their “vetting” of Gov. Palin has probably killed her political career. A good honest public servant made a polarizing figure for no good reason. I think this is the very thing that Andrew Breitbart was championing against. He wanted to support those willing to serve the American cause. People who have unabashed love for our history and what we are suppose to be will always hold my heart.
