Gregory: Welcome to the show Newt
Gingrich: thanks Greggers
Gregory: are you going to drop out
and endorse Santorum
Gingrich: Rick is a Papist!
Gregory: you all are going to split
the conservative vote
Gingrich: Unlike Santorum I am a master debater
Gregory: but he’s a real conservative
and you’re a con man
Gingrich: Little Ricky has no idea what’s
about to hit him
Gregory: oh my
Gingrich: this week will be the most important
six days in the history of the United States
Gregory: New Hampshire conservatives
Gingrich: yes but Mitt Romney used to
live on Golden Pond
Gregory: maybe but you need to do better
Gingrich: you have no idea how rabid
Carolina conservatives are
Gregory: perhaps not
Gingrich: Romney is a job-killing socialist!
Gregory: your poll numbers go up and down
Gingrich: that rich Mormon is out to get me!
Gregory: that’s so sad
Gingrich: if he wants to throw down believe
me I’m ready pal
Gregory: you are running a movie to
destroy Mitt Romney
Gingrich: I’ve never heard of that Super PAC
run on my behalf
Gregory: the film is full of lies - for example
Mitt Romney never killed a hobo did he?
Gingrich: if that never happened then the PAC
should edit the movie to take that part out
Gregory: but the lies are out there
Gregory: Indeed Romney needs to answer
serious questions about this missing hobo
Gregory: should Romney release his tax returns?
Gingrich: he’d better do it now because Obama
will hammer his ass if he doesn’t
Gregory: do you think Romney is hiding something?
Gingrich: this hobo business won’t go away Fluffy
Gregory: you said Mitt was more ruthless than
Wall Street - but what’s bad about that?
Gingrich: nothing - I just want to know if he’s
honest about how scummy he really is
Gregory: isn’t he a great businessman?
Gingrich: sure but do we really want a hobo-killer
in the White House?
Gregory: Conservatives are very upset that you
sound like Michael Moore
Gingrich: I’m not at all like Michael Moore -
he makes products which are very profitable
Gregory: so what’s your point?
Gingrich: that Mitt Romney is a big lying jerk
Gregory: what will you do when you lose
in South Carolina?
Gingrich: I will return to grifting full-time
Gregory: you made fun of Mitt Romney for
speaking French - why is that bad?
Gingrich: he’s a Mormon foreigner
Gregory: you lived in France!
Gingrich: [ evil laugh ]
[ break ]
Gregory: Congress is incredibly unpopular
Reid: the GOP obstructs everything!
Gregory: I see
Reid: then they tried to raise taxes on poor people
Gregory: you said the Tea Party would lose its
power and yet they are so wonderful
Reid: oh stuff it Fluffy
Gregory: Congress is a bunch of losers
Reid: not true we’re going to shut down the Internet
Gregory: I love twitter! #fluffytweets
Reid: don’t worry Fluffy your fans will still be
able follow your deep thoughts
Gregory: Didn’t you hate George Bush like
the GOP hates Obama?
Reid: yeah that’s why we gave him everything he wanted
Gregory: people don’t trust either party
Reid: neither do I
Gregory: the GOP are getting lots of things done!
Reid: no they are not
Gregory: they are in my imagination
Reid: so I’ve noticed
Gregory: If the GOP won’t work with the President
then it must be Obama’s fault
Reid: you’re funny
Gregory: what can Obama say to Republicans
to make them act rationally
Gregory: oh there must be something
Reid: raise taxes on the richest 1% so we can
help poor people
Gregory: you are dug in on your policies - how
will that help Republicans come to their senses!?!
Reid: it won’t
Gregory: that makes you a failure
Reid: you are so ridiculous
Gregory: Obama appointed the head of
the financial reform commission and
Mitt Romney says that bad
Reid: the GOP doesn’t even want reform law to exist!
Gregory: Obama is sneaky and tricky
Reid: I worked with Bush! Ask anyone! I’m a
big wet noodle!
Gregory: Suze Orman says the middle class
Reid: she’s right
Gregory: tell me about Mitt Romney
Reid: I will comment in six months when he is
the nominee and his views have changed
Gregory: what is your agenda?
Reid: jobs, health care and old people
Gregory: what about Bob Kerry
Reid: I like him - he once killed a guy
Gregory: thanks for coming Harry
[ break ]
Gregory: Lindsay what happened to Newt Gingrich
Graham: after the debates the Newt will rise again
Scott: the Christians are splintered - its just
like the 1st century AD
Gregory: what do people in Carolina care about?
Scott: they like Jesus but they really need a job
Graham: I love God too but we need to beat Obama
Gregory: what about Mitt?
Graham: thank the Lord for venture capitalism
Scott: Romney may be a ruthless bastard but can’t
say that out loud because we need to beat Obama
Gregory: who are you voting for?
Scott: I’m using the process of elimination
Gregory: can anyone else win besides Mitt?
Scott: yes - I mean no
Gregory: the tea party seems to have lost its influence
Graham: they were always regular conservatives
just more annoying than most
Gregory: can you defeat Obama?
Graham: if we rally around Mitt Romney
Gregory: so you support Mitt?
Graham: yes after next week
Gregory: if Romney a tea partier?
Scott: No but he can be reprogrammed
Gregory: and that’s another episode
