Todd Palin to robo-call for Gingrich; Gingrich calls Romney campaign ‘pathetic’

By Jo Ling Kent, NBC News
 

FORT MYERS, FL–Thousands of Floridians will hear the voice of Todd Palin in their homes tomorrow as they head out to the polls on primary day. The former GOP vice presidential candidate’s husband is recording a get-out-the-vote robo-call in support of Newt Gingrich that will go out across the state, campaign spokesman RC Hammond told NBC News.

Gingrich also revealed that Todd Palin will campaign on his behalf on the trail, though he did not specific exactly how.

“I’m also delighted Todd Palin has agreed to do calls for us and campaign for us,” Gingrich told a crowd at Page Field this afternoon.

“And I thought Sarah Palin’s op-ed that she posted on Friday and the interviews she did this weekend are pretty clear.”

Arriving more than 90 minutes late to the fourth stop of his fly-around trip across the state without any mention of his delay, a worn out-sounding Gingrich also slammed the Romney campaign as “pathetic.”

Citing a New York Times article about the Romney campaign’s strategy to defeat Gingrich in Florida, the former speaker of the House responded, “What a pathetic situation to be running for the President of the United States with nothing positive to say.”

“All you got to do is try to tear your opponent down to where they get smaller than you are, that’s the Romney model,” Gingrich added, referring to negative television ads and press conference calls by Romney’s organization.

“Now that’s not my model…I want to run a big campaign against Barack Obama, not a small campaign.”

Gingrich aggressively criticized the millions of dollars Romney has raised for his campaign, that he believes funded ads attacking him.

“Your money is recycled through Goldman Sachs to Mitt Romney to tell you a bunch of falsehoods,” Gingrich said.

Herman Cain, who along with Michael Reagan introduced Gingrich today, chimed in on the same note.

“Let me say this: to any undecided voters…look past all of the gutter politics and negativity and all of the sideshows,” Cain bellowed.

“Look at where Newt Gingrich stands on solving stuff!”

Beyond the campaign jabs, it was abundantly clear that Gingrich believes he needs a surge of last-minute support to finish on top tomorrow. Although he cited two unnamed polls that he said show him closing the gap and tying Romney, Gingrich implored voters to mobilize for him: “We have a lot of work to do in the next few hours.”

“Go home and email your friends this afternoon,” he told about 300 voters in the setting Florida sun. “Get on Facebook this afternoon…Twitter on the way home.”

    Hahahaha. The Quitters hubby (aka) the Squeaky Voiced Cheater doing robo calls for the “Serial cheating,changing my wife,changing my Religion,I’m a scamming,lying,scheming POS”? How appropriate that the Palins are aligning themselves with Gingrich. Birds of a feather…….

    Joe Miller! Part Deux

    Newt thought he would be performing dance steps with Sarah.

    Instead, he will be holding hands with Todd.

    How sweet!.

    I thought Toad…er..Todd had a snow machine race to get ready for. If he’s jsut recording obnoxous robocalls, he can do that from Wasilly. Poor Newt. Having to resort to the least liked people in the GOP to prop up his camoaign. He does know that the Palins expect big things in return right? Like lots of money, and cushy jobs and more press photos than Newt has.
    Come on Florida, take Newt out of this race and show the country how we really feel about the Palin grifters!

    Uh you good people forgot about Cain.A trio of philanderers.These people are amazing with the hypocrisy already.Good luck Newte,you will never be president.See the idea is to distance yourself from your past behavior not to embrace it but I suppose you know what you are doing.

    Uggh – hope he doesn’t call here – I’ve only heard Todd’s voice once but it was enough to assure me he hasn’t fathered any children – the Wasilla Castrati.

    Who gives a shit what Todd Palin thinks? It’s laughable that “someone” thinks it is a good idea for Toad to be involved. Don’t they realize what a JOKE this is? Twilight zone. Trying to remember other ex candidates spouses stumping……..anyone??

    First of all, I have an issue with someone that’s named after a lizard like thing. And as far as the rest of gingrich, he is a rabid pillsbury dough boy. He’s a bottom feeder just like $arah, toad and “herb”. Ugh! It’s pathetic newt. Are you serious?

    You have serial cheaters riding in your clown car. You’ve put together a ragtag team of ethically challenged and ridiculous wanna-be’s.

    You’re toast. You know it just like the rest of us. Furthermore, getting involved with the payme palins will only seal the end of your laughable campaign and we can’t wait – because now the grifter granny is shoving another one of our least liked grifters into our faces. Toad is NOT going to help you newt.

    You’re an ass. Can’t wait to get your fat red face outta here. Take the wasillabillies with you. ugh! Oh my god…how in the hell did the repugs end up with such lowlife and unqualified candidates?? Your party is in shambles and all of you are an embarassment to this country.

    Amphibians, actually – but don’t both creatures go through life changing transformations? If you saw a young one of either, you would not recognize it as the adult it will become.
