On his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh highlighted an article in The American Spectator by Jeffrey Lord that picked apart and called misleading Elliott Abrams’ article in National Review about Newt Gingrich.
The article prompted Limbaugh to conclude Abrams must have been “spoon-fed” the material about Gingrich’s after-hours speeches on the House floor in the 1980s by rival Mitt Romney’s campaign.
“Jeffrey Lord, like me, didn’t understand all this stuff with Newt yesterday,” the conservative pundit said, referring to a series of stories that ran earlier in the week casting Gingrich in a negative light for his anti-Ronald Reagan remarks while a young representative.
Abrams’ article is “devastating” to the Republican presidential candidate, Limbaugh said Thursday.
“It seems like Elliott Abrams has been had,” he said. “I’m just going to have to assume here that Elliott Abrams was spoon-fed this stuff by the Romney people. This is a stunning piece, but the genie’s out of the bottle. You can’t put all this back in the bottle now.”
