I’ve been moving into the Gingrich column for a few days. That clap-trap pushed me over. Too bad more of this wasn’t out before our primary.
Newt or nuthin’.
What we need is a government mandate! We need to mandate that all cars sold in the United States, starting with the 2010 model year, be flex-fuel vehicles that is, they should be able to run on a blend that is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline (the so-called E85 blend), or even a coal-derived methanol/gas mixture. This mandate would cost a fraction of the new fuel economy standard with the added benefit of saving barrels more oil.
Yes thats right. Santorums answer to the energy crisis was corn.
I hate to say it, but almost everyone has supported the ethanol mandate. A few exceptions, but not many. Why? Because unless you vote for farm subsidies, you will be thrown out of office in most of the farm states.
I remember back a number of decades ago, I’m not sure exactly when, when the Republicans voted to reduce farm subsidies. Those who did were thrown out of office, and the Democrats got an immediate majority in congress.
I HATE ethanol in the gas. But it’s going to be a huge job doing something about it.
Accept that the Senate has been run by a Mormon and vote for Willard over Zer0.
GO NEWT GO!
So much for him then.
Santorum is Huckabee 2.
And? It was Newt that sat on the couch, with Nancy, not Santorum!
I think you should find some other issue to use, this one does not work well, for Newt.
And Newt is pushing ethanol subsidies to this day.
Fact is the biggest BIGGEST issue threatening America today is the INDIVIDUAL MANDATE in Obamacare—this is where you are FORCED by the GOVERNMENT to BUY a particular product just because you have a pulse in America.
Newt was for it and Mitt invented it so Rick is the only one with the standing and credibility to confront Obama on it.
The single most important issue right now and only one of our candidates can even talk about it without being called a hypocrite—the GOVERNMENT telling Americans what they WILL buy or be “HELD ACCOUNTABLE” in Newt's words.
Yeah it sux that some people will abuse the medical system and the rest of us will have to pay for it—but is having the GOVERNMENT taking away individual freedom and the slippery slope it introduces the answer?
Obama, Mitt and Newt thought so...
Gingrich the lonely Republican in supporting ethanol subsidies
November 3, 2011
In Iowa, four out of five Republican candidates for US President say that its time to end ethanol subsidies because its not the governments place to support one source of energy over another.
Newt Gingrich was the only candidate at a manufacturing forum held Tuesday that supported ethanol subsidies, while two current frontrunners Mitt Romney and Herman Cain werent in attendance at all.
None of the remaining GOP candidates is 100% pure on all issues conservatives like and hope to see implemented to improve our country’s future.
As the primary process goes on, vote for the one you like and respect the most and he may be the final nominee. Contribute as money is necessary to go forward.
What we shouldn’t do is to get too nasty or promote too much bloodletting against our guys, as that helps the one we fear most, Obama.
Instead they'll come back here and post how bad some other politician is.
Is there no limit to the brilliance and cunning strategery of our GOP candidates and the members of the GOP?!
I mean, seriously, someone hold me up, I’m about to faint just thinking about the sheer win that is the repubican party...
I’ve never cared for Rick S., and have despised him even more during the Primaries as he has tried to portray himself as Conservative (like Romney does). ....Rick apparently forgets that his past is available to the public.
Ethanol mandates and subsidies must be canceled!
