Skip to comments.Newt Considers a Run for RNC Chairman
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....

that would be great.
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.
He’s an f’n so over idiot. No way. Let him run to be Pelosi’s global warming bidet.
>>>>>I remember how effective Haley Barbour was the last time we were in the political wilderness.<<<<
Mississippi is lucky to have him as governor.
I think he is wasting his talents as a governor. We need him in Washington kicking butts and taking names.
Newt, if you’re in here GO FOR IT!!!!!
Coward Dean VS Newt
I like it.
More 1996 for 2012?
OH PLEASE Newt. We need you. PLEASE PLEASE RUN!!!
Do it Newt and take no prisoners.
He would seriously need to disclaim these anti-conservative messages before I would even consider him.
Remember, NO MORE RINOs!!!!!!
I like this idea.
I think Newt would be great and could articulate our message and strategy well but is he really ready for the BATTLE that will be like no other?
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.
Thats what I was thinking, Karl. They can’t like this thought. Might be some “moderate” Republicans getting ready to re-aim as well.
This is exactly what is needed.
Let us start a “Draft Newt” movement.
WHO DO I CALL WHERE DO WE GO HE MUST DO THIS - PLEASE POST ALL INFO ASAP - PTL
The RNC has a chairmanship? /s
>>>>>I think he is wasting his talents as a governor. We need him in Washington kicking butts and taking names.<<<<<<
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.
“he is a double agent.”
Damn sure is. He’s another country club elitist just like the ones who threw this election.
I understand perfectly if Karl Rove is burnt out and needs a break. However I give him 18 momnths before we need to recruit him for 2010 elections.
I’d like to see him be Sarah Palin’s campaign advisor in ‘12!
YES!! He is best at articulating the conservative response to the next four years!!
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?
I’ve long been in favor of the Newt Deal! Go Newt!
I just sent an email encouraging him to “do it”
What about DUNCAN HUNTER?
Here comes all of the Newt sux people, no wonder we cannot get it together. I’m all for NEWT !!
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....
Oh, please, God, make it happen!
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.
That would be a dream lineup. I like that guy Ryan from WI too.
Please, please let this be the case. The Republicans have lost their base since they have gone “moderate.” We need someone who will fight for “CONSERVATIVE” values! Only with someone like Newt can this party be brought back together!
The GOP needs new blood, not retreads like Newt.
This would be great news going into the new year and the mid-term election!
that is what this party needs
OPERATION GRIDLOCK PING!
Freepmail me to get on or off this list.
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.
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.
After this PSA I’d say no thanks to Newt:
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!
(By the way, it looks like you scooped Sean Hannity. LOL!)
I guess all that talk yesterday about cleansing the ranks of the party and getting some fresh blood and new faces was just lip service.
NEWT! NEWT! NEWT! If he doesn’t get it, the GOP has truly lost its mind.
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!
