The word among GOP insiders here in Georgia is that Newt Gingrich is considering throwing his name in the hat to be the next Chairman for the RNC....

Wasn’t Rove the one that came up with ‘compassionate conservatism?” That worked out pretty good.
So, does this group recruit candidates? If so, would you attempt to defeat party-selected candidates in a primary if the party choice is not acceptable?
My thoughts exactly. He is a great communicator, but not true to his words in many ways. As an advisor, maybe, but as the chair, NO.
New blood is needed. . . Jindal would fit the bill as RNC chair better than as a candidate IMO.
As far as Rove goes. . . let’s be done with him finally. Out of touch.
Um, that would also be the same Newt that's a member in good standing of the GLOBALIST cabal known as The Council on Foreign Relations where he shares membership with Joe Biden, BOTH Clintons, Jimmy Carter and George Soros? The same NEWT that watched in 1994 as the Assault WEeapons /magazine BAN made it's way through the Congress and the Senate and did NOT ONE THING to stop or even hinder it's passage? I agree, no sale.
Newt has long decried the lack of a backbone of steel in the RNC and the sad fact the leadership of the Republican Party had abandoned its core principles.
If you get an opportunity, go to Mark Levin's website and listen to the audio of the 1964 speech Ronald Reagan made on behalf of Barry Goldwater...it's almost as though history has sadly repeated itself.
I LIKE IT!
NEWT has been something of a guiding light since 9-11, just to start from a convenient point in his afterlife as a public servant. He has shown himself to be the kind of straight-talker John McCain thinks he is. He is EXACTLY who is needed to rally around for a reborn Conservatism that rises from the ashes of an irrelevant RINO Republican party.
Jezebelle is the one advocating Rove, not me.
I already emailed Newt asking him to go for it.
come come now AndyJackson no need to get all testy and call me an idiot simply because you disagree with my assessment. we can all be adults, and adults are discussing things here.
apparently i insulted your guy newt or whatever and you have taken umbrage with my statements. fair enough.
i’ll stand by my statements and wish you the best.
BTW regarding global warming. It is an open scientific question whether or not human activities are causing worrisome climate change. By open, I mean open - it has not been answered on one side or on the other. One thing that scientists are much less uncertain about, however, is the effect on global climate of continued Chinese growth in energy consumption. If the Chinese expand to American like intensity of energy consumption, and if it is based on carbon based fuels (coal, etc.) then there is little doubt that it will have enormous impact on the global climate.
Please let it be true.
(can he have an envirowacko-ectomy first?)
I like to see Fred Thompson run. He is just the kind of real conservative we need, he speak well, and has little or no bagage.
Well, Bush was elected for two terms. Whether he had a name for the tenor of his programs or not, I think his programs and the tenor would be the same. I think the phrase “compassionate conservatism” was a marketing ploy, nothing more.
And it worked. Bush was elected twice, which was better than having Gore or Kerry elected, so you may want to rethink your argument against Rove. Newt’s a great guy, brilliant man and scholar, but he’s not the greatest political strategist. He let the rats outmaneuver him. Rove didn’t. Don’t you think we have enough upper management people who don’t know how to win, how to street-fight, and continue to bring needles to gunfights?
I know. Reality sucks sometimes.
If Newt drops the global warming schtick I’ll back him!
Listening to him speak gives me hope for humanity.
AS WE pick a new leader of the party, we need to keep in mind all of hollyweird that kept silent are not going to start screaming.
Right now “bowling for columbine” is playing.
The left is going to go after the second amendment because they see that right as “empowering” to their enemies.
Newton won’t drop global warming. He is probably waiting for Al Gore to praise him the way Gore gushed over Jack French Kemp in the horrendous 1996 debate, one I will never forget. Kemp even believed Gore!
I hope that you are right.
Newt would be great ...
Even dems have scaled back on "global warming" talk. Temps have been going DOWN for years.
The global warming issue is gonna go the way of Club of Rome, the Population Bomb, and Alar on apples. It'll slink off into a corner and the MSM will not remember it was dem silliness all along.
One more liberal scare tactic bites the dust. Newt will be great in the job.
I’d still like to hear it from his lips. Besides they are still talking global warming and cap and trade.
I have a new philosophy: if he can downsize government and preserve my liberty, I don't care if he has a bigger harem than Solomon did.
Thompson emerges as potential leader as GOP moves rightward
[Fred for RNC chair?]
