Digital Journal ^ | 11/6/08 | Sherri Reese

Posted on 11/06/2008 12:42:25 PM PST by eeevil conservative

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....

well...THAT WOULD BE GOOD NEWS...(maybe).

Honestly, with all the Sarah bashing coming out from our side right now..I find myself suddenly not trusting any of them anymore. We have alot of housecleaning to do. Newt has been great on the energy debate and I am inclined to trust him completely and know he has been a defender of Sarah all along. But will he help to get rid of the Rhinos and conservative traitors in our party or prop them up? Will he ‘reach across the aisle’..because I don’t want anyone on our side with those inclinations for the forseeable future!

Add Barbour to that list. We need all conservatives to answer the call.

I think he is wasting his talents as a governor. We need him in Washington kicking butts and taking names.

The last few years Newt seems to have embraced socialism ie globull warming and other feel good issues.

He would seriously need to disclaim these anti-conservative messages before I would even consider him.

Remember, NO MORE RINOs!!!!!!

Yeah but pretty much all the dirt on Newt has already been out and for a very long time. They will attack anyone with an (R) after their name.

We may as well have some people who can articulate our principles out in front instead of the bumbling fools there now.

I recall him being asked about that and he showed no interest whatsoever. There was no coyness in his answer, you could tell he meant it.

This was some many months after Katrina and he took the diplomatic route to say that “My state needs me here.”

But I think what he really meant was that he could actually be effective, helpful, and absent the headaches as the governor of a state rather than as POTUS.

This would be awesome. If he can get the chairmanship, he'll probably start putting forward ideas like 1994’s “Contract With America”, which gave the GOP the House and Senate for the first time in decades.

I am just so sick of the hyposcrisy.

What about Obama’s neo-classical Greek stage? What about Obama’s party in the park? The 0 campaign squandered millions on nonsense.

My question is, will the whole crew of stage builders, lighting specialists, and hollywood special effects people of the 0 campaign be given a special new cabinet appointment?

He’s too old to run for President but RNC Chairman is the ideal spot for the architect of the Contract with America. We need his great mind and leadership.

I generally like Newt’s ideas, but I think he might have too much baggage.

Let me ask: has Newt mentored any bright young conservative minds who’ve been in the political world and proven themselves??

We really do need new faces. That is why Sarah and Bobby are so appealing—young, different people who are walking the walk AND talking the talk.

No offense to the mobs here who love Newt. Of course, Newt wouldn’t be running for office either....

I just called the RNC today and gave them a piece of my mind before telling them to remove my name from their list.

If this happens, I will call and get my name back on.

I’ve ALWAYS thought this would be the perfect role for Newt.

Newt is a perfect organizer and strategist and proved it with the Contract with America; unfortunately, his personality does not lend himself to being the “leader” once the goal is accomplished, like we saw when he was Speaker. RNC Chairman would be ideal.

OPERATION GRIDLOCK PING!

Freepmail me to get on or off this list.

OUR OBJECTIVE:

To take back the House of Representatives and the Senate in 2010 with a Republican supermajority so that there is gridlock between the Executive and Legislative branches.

It will take several years to undo the damage a Democrat majority Congress can do in two years.

OUR METHODOLOGY:

In order to do this, we need to plan to take our Republican Party BACK from the moderates and we will get Congress back.

1. Find true Conservative candidates at the local level to field for Congress-- EVEN AGAINST RINO MEMBERS OF OUR OWN PARTY!

2. Any Republican Congressperson or Senator voting YES on any non-balanced budget, open borders, anti-gun, anti-life, tax credit, tax increase, minimum wage increase, illegal alien amnesty, or increased spending initiative (besides our military) from this day forward MUST BE REPLACED WITH A CONSERVATIVE. Forget "non-partisianship" -- let the Socialist Democrats pass their treasury-raiding acts with THEIR names, not ours.

To borrow a phrase from the Left, "NOT IN OUR NAME!"

3. NO MORE OPEN PRIMARIES OR CAUCUSES!!! Allowing people not of our party to chose our candidates is inexcusable.

Thanks for the ping! Newt did lose some degree of credibility when he sat next to Pelousy on the sofa in that disgusting global warming propaganda advertisement. But, I expect few would argue that Newt knows how to get Republicans elected with the support of conservatives. He’s proven that in spades, and no one can ever take it away from him.

We need Newt as RNC chairman. Go Newt!

For all of Newt's flaws (and I've never been a fan of his), I must acknowledge that when the Republican Party seemed to be relegated to permanent minority status after the 1992 election (sound familiar folks) he was a tremendous asset to the GOP in terms of leadership, vision, setting a policy agenda, etc. In retrospect, his optimism -- no, his absolute certainty -- that the Republican Party would see a historic resurgence in 1994 was one of the most remarkable stories in national politics in my lifetime.

I wouldn't worry too much about how a person in his capacity buys into some kind of nonsense like global warming, the environment, etc. What you usually find is that in their post-Congress career, someone like this ends up getting hired by an industry advocacy group specifically to help them push an agenda in Washington.

Like him or hate him, Newt has been the most consistent conservative messenger in America since Reagan. He may stray off the rightwing reservation from time to time, but he’s just what the movement needs. Newt was a back-bench bomb thrower in Congress for years, until he finally put together a solid coalition of conservatives, advancing the Contract With America and getting the GOP elected to majority of control of the House for the first time in 40 years.

Newt would be great as head of the RNC!
