The Right Scoop ^ | 10/22/2011 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 10/23/2011 5:20:14 PM PDT by Signalman

Tonight Newt Gingrich spoke at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition and then answered a few questions from a panel. I’ve split the Speech from the Q&A and both are below.


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: gingrich; gopiowa; iowa; newt

Very informative videos from Newt; I learned a few things from them I didn’t know before.

Has anyone organized a Newt ping list?

A couple years ago I watched a vid of Newt lecturing law students somewhere in GA. His topic: The Supreme Court is Not the Supreme Branch of Government.

For two hours without a pause he covered history, politics around our colonial and founding era, and left me encouraged that we can take back a government currently dominated by unelected god-judges and bureaucrats.

“I learned a few things from them I didn’t know before.”

I’ve noticed this happening often lately. My husband and I are very impressed with what he is saying. We were upset with him a few times in the past, but we understand that people CAN learn best from mistakes. I want to hear more from him.

I also saw a Newt speech from 2009 really taking it to the Obama administration. The man is great and can really get his point across in a manner that everyone can understand. Well maybe those liberals without a brain would be excluded. I am really giving Newt a hard look for President. The man is truly a Patriot and knows the history of this country.

I still think Newt would make a great VP for Cain.

“The Supreme Court is Not the Supreme Branch of Government.”

Yeah, he hits on that topic in the Q&A video as well. It definitely enlightened me.

I hope people take a 2nd look at him, instead of writing him off.

It’s really down to two candidates I am now willing to consider - Newt and Cain. Newt is making amends for his past with his stand-up performances as of late. I am more willing now to overlook his Pelosi loveseat stupidity.

Sorry Newt, you have some great ideas, but you lost me with your ethanol BS. I have listened to you for years and we don’t want more sophisticated and efficent government. We want less f’n government. You have served your country well, but it’s time to move on.

IIRC, he said Jefferson got Congress to eliminate a dozen or so lower courts. Imagine that.

Among our national tribulations is the pestilence of Marxist judges. It would be grand if, in 2013, Congress dis-established most of the lower and appellate federal court system and started over.

Let's give the moonbats something to howl about.

Ditto here. It’s Cain or Newt for me. Ideally, both would end up on the same ticket—how often does it happen though that running mates get chosen from former primary contenders? Just curious, if anyone knows.

I very much liked his comments regarding shrinking government while, at the same time, growing citizenship. Excellent!

This is desperately needed in this nation.

The conventional wisdom is that Newt has too much personal baggage, but does it really matter? I am more concerned about his squishiness on Gore Bull Warming and coziness with Pelosi. Newt is a great idea man, but possibly too smart by half for popular consumption. I could vote for him and only half-hold my nose.

He has actually been pretty honest about the global warming stuff and said that it was a mistake and he was wrong. As for his “baggage,” a lot of that was really just Dem innuendo. They basically made him resign because he had been successful at getting the Contract with America passed and they were out for blood, so they used a completely trumped up concern about sales of his book (which was neither illegal nor unethical) to attack him.

The biggest problem, IMHO, is that it’s not certain that the GOP establishment would support him. It was basically the GOP and not the Dems that took him down earlier. The GOP head honchos were actually embarrassed by his success and accused him of not being conciliatory enough and being too partisan, and when the Dems attacked, the GOP just cut him loose.

The question is whether the party heads will accept him again. I don’t think they will. They want a Romney/Cain ticket and I think that’s what we’re going to get.

NO....not when people learn and change from their mistakes. From what I can see, he has. I also like that Mr. Gingrich GETS the WHOLE picture of what needs to be done (this includes not only restoring our free enterprise system, but re-shaping thinking on what it means to be AMERICAN and have real freedom, rebuilding our national security, developing sound foreign policy)....

...AND....the fact that it will be difficult, with the left fighting such change the whole way. He seems to have FULLY thought this out. I LIKE it!

I see talk on this thread about choosing a VP candidate. Here is an article from a Reagan insider on how Bush was chosen in 1980. I didn't realize how close they were to picking Ford. If you love Reagan, this is an absolutely great read, it just takes a couple minutes to read.

Bush chosen at last minute

I guess people are being taken in by the negative propaganda being spotlighted so heavily on front runner, Herman Cain. It is too bad that the truth doesn’t get talked about on TV or written about in Establishment newspapers and magazines Herman Cain is not a politician! Herman Cain is a a family man, a church going man; an amazingly successful business man; a thinking man, an innovative man; a problem solver; a country loving American. He is not ambiguous, he is truthful and addresses ideals beyond the ken of many people.

He has always wanted to leave the world a better place than it was when he came into it. In fact he is someone we have not seen since Ronald Reagan, he is a statesman! He is not a man who is seeking power. He is a man who loves his country so much that he thinks he can fix it and folks, it is BADLY in need of fixing! He knows how to delegate authority!.

But don’t take my word for it. Read his book, “This is Herman Cain”. Then decide for hyourswlves who and what Herman Cain is.

The ethanol things is small beer compared to holding Nancy Polosi's hand on the sofa and babbling about globull warming. Oh, you just think we should study the issue, Newt? Yeah, right.

Newt is a very bright guy and did one great thing back in 1994. He has shown time and again to be a person of manifestly bad character and a leader who puts his own ego and personal ambition ahead of the good of the party, movement, and country. Newt, get lost.

I have always thought one of Reagans worst mistakes waqs picking Geo. Bush... Ford would have been a lot worse. This article shows that Ford was willing to sacrifice Reagans election because of his lberal idiocy!!! Jack Kemp would have been better, Reagan had Carter on the ropes with the knockout punch on the way...he could have won with any pick!!!

I was hoping for Kemp as VP in 1980 but wasn’t too upset with the choice of Bush. Kemp had his chance in 1996 and turned out to be an absolute dud, even giving an embarrassingly bad performance in his debate with Al Gore. Of course, Jack’s brain had probably gone soft after being in D.C. for so long.

I was apolitical. Didn’t know what liberal or conservative meant. I stumbled upon c-span and listened to Newt at GOPAC talk 45 minutes about our country and Contract With America. I was mesmerized. Changed my life. Found Rush (never heard of him) and Free Republic after that. All tied together. An amazing speaker, historian, and patriot. One of his many films is documenting God in our history and in our Washington landmarks and buildings. He blows away all the nonsense liberals have spread about our country not Christian nation.

What a great speech!

I’m please to see that the Conservatives seem to be very vocal this year in the Republican party. It’s a good start but it needs to be the new standard.

No more giving up any more ground to the Leftist control freaks. We have given up entirely too much ground and our Republic is in trouble because of it.
