    I know DKos readers are aware that on January 20, 2009, Paul Ryan plotted to sabotage the US Economy with 11 other GOP Congressmen plus Newt Gingrich plus GOP Propaganda Minister Frank Luntz.

     On June 12, 2012, Newt Gingrich admitted he and Paul Ryan and 11 other GOP Congressmen did, indeed, plot to sabotage the US Economy because, as Newt put it, they were afraid that since President Obama was going to work with both parties to pull America out of what George Bush called "a Depression greater than the Great Depression" that Obama would lead like Eisenhawer and get re-elected and by-gawd the GOP would rather America's economy go belly up than have President Obama win re-election 4years later.

The part of Newt's admission I find most alarming and signalling that Paul Ryan, Newt Gingrich became Traitors to America that night is this:

GINGRICH: The first is, it was an important meeting and I was glad and honored
to be part of it ... I said to Callista when we left the wall -- because we were at the Capitol for the inaugural. As we left, I said, you know, if he sticks to the kind of moderation and bipartisanship he`s been describing, he will split the Republican
Party. He`ll govern like Eisenhower and he`ll get reelected. Now this is -- this is the inaugural day.
   So, rather than risk "splitting the Republican Party" Paul Ryan and 11 other GOP Congressmen vowed to sabotage the US Economy.

     Today, Newt Gingrich was interviewed by George Stephanopolus and justified Robert Mourdoch's comment that if a girl gets pregnant by being raped then that's what "god intended."   So, why the f'ck does anyone even interview Newt since he plotted against America and plotted against American families?  

     I'd like to know:
1) Why are any media outlets continuing to interview Newt Gingrich
2) Why are no media outlets demanding the Romney/Ryan campaign explain Paul Ryan's involvement of plotting to undermine the US Economy?

     In Robert Draper's book, "Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives" Draper wrote that on inauguration night, 2009, during a four hour, "invitation only" meeting with GOP Hate-Propaganda Minister, Frank Luntz, the below listed Senior GOP Law Writers literally plotted to sabotage, undermine and destroy America's Economy.

The Guest List:

Frank Luntz - GOP Minister of Propaganda
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)
Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA)
Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA),
Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX),
Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX),
Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI)
Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA),
Sen. Jim DeMint (SC-R),
Sen. Jon Kyl (AZ-R),
Sen. Tom Coburn (OK-R),
Sen. John Ensign (NV-R) and
Sen. Bob Corker (TN-R).

Non-lawmakers present Newt Gingrich - Failed GOP candidate for President

     I know I have written about this topic before and I think it is so important that the main stream media at least question Romney/Ryan campaign about this that I am continuing to write diaries so as to remind everyone that the current GOP candidate for Vice President literally plotted to undermine the US Economy for personal political gain.

       Here is a link to my other Diary on this.  

       Here is a video of George Bush admitting that Bush Economic Policy caused a "Depression Greater than the Great Depression"  Keep in mind, Romney has hired Bush's Economic Advisors who ushered in Bush's failed economic policies.

       It will truly be a god-damn shame if voters are not told of what Paul Ryan did at that 4hour covert meeting on January 20, 2009.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Thom Hartmann has been ranting about this for at least a year but it never found its way into the Obama messaging. It's a part of the bigger obstruction story that has just never been incorporated into the case against the Republicans. Seems like a deliberate choice. The best hope at this point is that one of PACS would make hay of it in swing states but that's doubtful. Whatever the reasons were for Team O to choose to not to go there are probably known by the PACs.

    Why do to the Sunday shows and other media invite, Gingrich, Trump, Coulter?

    The despicable, racist lies of GOP obstructionists endanger the USA.

    Not that Romney, Ryan, Gingrinch, Trump, Coulter, Sununu give a damn.

  •  where does he admit it? (0+ / 0-)

    No sound card on this computer. The transcript you provided does not show any such admission, imho.

      From Video:

      SHARPTON: Mr. Draper wrote about the night of the inauguration. There was a meeting at a hotel near the inaugural ball, about a mile away, in which, that night, there was a -- a group of Republicans, you among them, that was committed to the defeat of President Obama. This is before any of this.Draper writes that you told the group -- you, Newt Gingrich, "You will remember this day...you will remember this day the seeds of 2012 were sown."
      Now, you called the president and Democrats divisive. You said he hasn`t done anything.
      If there was a commitment from day one, before he ever took a seat behind the desk of the Oval Office, that everyone was going to obstruct him, then what he`s done has been almost unbelievable, against those kind
      of odds, Speaker Gingrich.

      GINGRICH: The first is, it was an important meeting and I was glad and honored
      to be part of it ... I said to Callista when we left the wall -- because we were at the Capitol for the inaugural. As we left, I said, you know, if he sticks to the kind of moderation and bipartisanship he`s been describing, he will split the Republican
      Party. He`ll govern like Eisenhower and he`ll get reelected. Now this is -- this is the inaugural day.

        I guess you missed the part of my comment about not having a sound card.

        Anyhoo, i'm sorry to say that he didn't admit to anything except attending a meeting.

        I sure wish the thing had been catered because we might have some juicy video of the thing.

  •  Gingrich is a big fat liar. (0+ / 0-)

    In this video he claims that the Republicans had no hand in the stimulus bill.  But according to Tim Dickinson's, How the GOP Became the Party of the Rich:

    By driving the economy into the ditch, Republicans left the next president little choice but to drive up deficits in the short term by launching a massive campaign of federal spending to ward off a global depression. But even the $787 billion stimulus engineered by President Obama was hamstrung by his predecessor's ongoing giveaway to the wealthy: Republicans insisted that nearly 10 percent of every stimulus dollar be devoted to financing the annual "patch" to the Alternative Minimum Tax – the off-budget legacy of Bush's tax cuts for the rich. This was a $70 billion handout that inflated the cost of the stimulus package without stimulating anything – other than the paychecks of wealthy Americans.
