Ah aren't they a cute couple? :-) Don't get me wrong. I think Newt has redeemed himself to a good degree but some of his acolytes are a bit sanctimonious of late.

He admitted on FNC that it was a big mistake to do that ad.

Newt is a panderer and a opportunist...surprisingly only recently has he seen the light or only after taken some grief about something stupid he did....hmmm!

He also said the same thing Sunday in Daytona - called it the biggest mistake he’s ever made.

Newt said yesterday on Sean H radio that the academy of science says there is global warming and that he does not check his conservative bag of saying everyday. I would ask him how is it that the entire solar system is heating up and that there are no cows or humans on mars to cause this change.

1989: Rep. Newt Gingrich (R-GA) co-sponsors the ambitious Global Warming Prevention Act (H.R. 1078), which finds that “the Earth’s atmosphere is being changed at an unprecedented rate by pollutants resulting from human activities, inefficient and wasteful fossil fuel use, and the effects of rapid population growth in many regions,” that “global warming imperils human health and well-being” and calls for policies “to reduce world emissions of carbon dioxide by at least 20 percent from 1988 levels by 2000.” The legislation recognizes that global warming is a “major threat to political stability, international security, and economic prosperity.” [H.R. 1078, 2/22/1989]

1992: Gingrich calls the environmental proposals in Al Gore’s book Earth in Balance “devastatingly threatening to most American pocketbooks and jobs.” [National Journal, 9/5/92]

1996: At a speech for the Detroit Economic Club, Gingrich mocks “Al Gore’s global warming,” citing “the largest snowstorm in New York City’s history”: “We were in the middle of budget negotiations; the football games were coming up and we noticed on the weather channel that an early symptom of Al Gore’s global warming was coming to the East Coast. And it does make you wonder sometimes, doesn’t it, how theoretical statisticians in the middle of the largest snowstorm in New York City’s history could stand there and say, ‘I don’t care what it’s doing. It’s going to get very hot soon.’” [FDCH Political Transcripts, 1/16/96]

1997: As Speaker of the House, Gingrich co-sponsors H. Con. Res. 151, which notes carbon dioxide is a “major greenhouse gas” that comes from “products whose manufacture consumes fossil fuels” and calls on the United States to “manage its public domain national forests to maximize the reduction of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.” [H. Con. Res. 151, 9/10/1997]

2007: Gingrich calls for a cap-and-trade system with tax incentives for clean energy. “I think if you have mandatory carbon caps combined with a trading system, much like we did with sulfur, and if you have a tax-incentive program for investing in the solutions, that there’s a package there that’s very, very good. And frankly, it’s something I would strongly support.” [Frontline, 2/15/07]

February 15, 2007: “I think if you have mandatory carbon caps combined with a trading system, much like we did with sulfur, and if you have a tax-incentive program for investing in the solutions, that there’s a package there that’s very, very good. And frankly, it’s something I would strongly support.” [Frontline, 2/15/07]

In a debate on climate policy with Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), Gingrich says “the evidence is sufficient that we should move towards the most effective possible steps to reduce carbon-loading of the atmosphere,” and that we should “do it urgently.” [ThinkProgress, 4/10/07]

In a Washington Post chat, Gingrich rejects a cap-and-trade system, saying it “would lead to corruption, political favoritism, and would have a huge impact on the economy.” He says he supports “tax credits for dramatically reducing carbon emissions.” [Washington Post, 4/17/08]

2008: In an advertisement made for Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection, Gingrich sat with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and said that “we do agree our country must take action to address climate change.” [We Campaign, 4/18/08]

“I don’t think that we have conclusive proof of global warming. And I don’t think we have conclusive proof that humans are at the center of it.” [Newt.org, 4/22/08]

April 4, 2009: “And now, in 2009, instead of making energy cheaper—which would help create jobs and save Americans money—President Obama wants to impose a cap-and-trade regime. Such a plan would have the effect of an across-the-board energy tax on every American. That will make our artificial energy crisis even worse—and raising taxes during a deep economic recession will only accelerate American job losses.” [Newsweek, 4/4/09]

>> There is such as thing as over playing your hand. When you keep beating people over the head with these photos most of us become numb to them. <<

The "Newt on the couch with Nancy Pelosi" photo has been overplayed, but what surprises me is the "Newt stumping for Dede Scozzafava" thing has completely disappeared from the web (I can't even find any pictures of Newt campaigning for her!). She's such an uber-RINO she made Giuliani look good, and Newt campaigned for her much harder than Santorum did for Specter. At the time it happened, tons of conservative bloggers were vowing to never support Newt again. Where are those bloggers now?

Yeah I know. He’s had many big mistakes and just because we have forgotten doesn’t not mean they will remain so especially in a general election. Gingrich is a good man but he is his own worst enemy. He helped usher in 1994 but then went on to message up the messaging so bad that Clinton managed to win even when he lost. That is my primary worry with him at the top of the ticket. Again I like him but we should be honest with ourselves. There is no heir apparent. No magic candidate. If Newt wins the nomination I’ll gladly support him but let’s not have him win without being fully aware of the contest ahead. I personally think Cain has much better skills personally when it comes to taking apart Obama.

I saw that too..he said it was the stupidest thing he’s done. He now claims he is “agnostic” about GW if it is real and man made. That is a big improvement. Maybe Newt will rise to the top. I know he is for securing the border. I just dont know where he stands on amnesty. If he is for it, that is a deal breaker.

Why does he think it was a mistake? Has he attacked the climate hoaxers yet? If not, then he is still in that camp but he regrets the political backlash it has caused him.

Never forget the power of money in politics. Specifically the golden slacks of Goldman Sachs and the now defunct “carbon credits” commodity market they tried to start up. Many still pushing it because oil cos got into it for self defense and to create the next bubble now housing is for pooh.

Newt states publicly he was “nuts” to do this and also that cap and trade is insane. Though, Anne Coulter dismisses him from the CPAC log cabin wing.

Cain has shown the most strength. He has been criticized and hated on by the ‘smart’ people on both sides and they failed that should tell you something. Do you really believe Newt could’ve survived something like that when he didn’t even survive his own scandal in the 90s? He also has the best back story of coming from nothing to rise through his own hard work. I don’t want to re-fight the battles of the 90s nor return to the establishment of that time. That is the hand we have been dealt. Newt right now looks good for the moment. I like how he has knocked the media down a notch.

Agreed, and I have to admit liking Newt pushing back on all these rabid liberal host.

Newt needs to find his Conservative roots if he really ever had them, which I think he did.

For politicians like Mitt Romney, Conservatism is nothing but a politial strategy.

Cooties from Peloosi from the couch, yuck. But, she is under investigation, you know for her, uh, green investments. The solyndra thing and something about ethics and thievery.
So there should be some distance opening, some reality of thinking about where this was all coming from in the pump and dump investment world, and they hooked Newt too. I’m more upset he was “dialoging” with Hitlery. Beltway banditry.

All mirrors and smoke, just like this absolute harridan, whose daddy was mayor of baltimore and ran the democratic machine there. She moved to and looks like her constituency from the Castro district of San Fran (they luuuuv who they hate). Imagine waking up to that w/ or w/out makeup.

Not just knocking the media down— doing it with sophisticated bright humor. Like the answer to Baritromo.
The CNBC journalist asked Newt in a huffy tone: “I’m sorry, but what is the media reporting inaccurately about the economy?”

Gingrich mocked her deftly, “I love humor disguised as a question. That’s terrific.”

In a debate with the barracka, he’d wipe him out. Smart and, also a real professor, not a fake one. And he, for one has actual understanding of the Constitution and how Congress works. Better baggage than the barracka pres.

I sent Newt a msg and told him to read Christopher Horner’s books: “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming, and “Red Hot Lies”.

You cannot read those books and still believe in global warming.

Also, if you’re a video person, there is a great DVD, “Privileged Planet” - Amazing revelations regarding the Earth’s placement within the universe. Just a few degrees out of orbit one way and we would be a frozen planet like Mars, and just a few degrees the other direction and we would have been burned up by the Sun. If you have children, this is a great video - would make a special Christmas gift for the whole family.

Anyone who reads all the quotes from Newt that you just listened and isn't concerned almost has to be have at least a few closet liberal tendencies. I agree that Newt is very smart and I really enjoyed the debate between him and Mr. Cain the other night. I was a huge Newt fan back in the day. But he is an opportunist with a lot of baggage. I will support him if he is the candidate who wins the nomination.

“Newt can ‘claim’ conservatism, he sat on that couch. That did him in. He sat on that couch.”

I’m with you. That couch move is scary stuff. I can forgive a Republican who has a dinner with Muzzie leader who is identified with supporting terrorism, for two reasons:
1) Every Muslim leader supports terrorism, so no choice there if you want to be seen with one.
2) Republicans know next to nothing about Islam

But for Heaven’s Sake. Newt knows EXACTLY who Pelosi is and EXACTLY what she stands for. I realize that I’m a Cain supporter...and therefore support him over Newt anyway, but even so, there is still NO EXCUSE for what Newt did. It wasn’t just a brain fart at a debate, it was something that he had a LOT of time to think about and consider the implications.

...and to this day, we’ll never know for sure if it was that advertisement that convinced Justice Anthony Kennedy to give the EPA the right to regulate carbon. And the Court does get influenced by stunts like that, when they think the country is unified in wanting to go that way.

Newt’s climate change ad way back in 2008 is not a major issue for me. The exposing of the fake East Anglia Climate Research didn’t happen until late 2009, so the majority of the science in 2008 was on the side of climate change.

I daresay some on Free Republic might have argued in favor of open-mindedness about climate change back in 2008. It would probably be easy enough to check on.

So, this is hardly an issue at all. And even Newt has said that looking back it was a dumb thing.

What’s important to me is: (1) Pro-Life, (2) Pro-God, (3) Pro-Gun, (4) Pro-Natural Marriage & Family, (5) Pro-Fiscal Sanity, (6) Pro-Military, (7) Pro-America, etc.

Newt meets all those standards.
