Newt Gingrich, presidential candidate, discusses the economy in the CNBC GOP Debate. The debate highlighted a simple but profound fact regarding the economy: returning to prosperity and job creation will not be easy.

Newt is very intelligent and a good debater but the old Newt will rise and insert-foot-in-mouth or do something really stupid to make you remember why you were uneasy about him

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]

He’s the ideas man. I would love him as a President or Vice-President. He does need to focus on 2-3 priorities, but his gut instinct is to be all over the place!

Liking Newt has never been a problem for me; trusting him, though...

I’m going to re-post something on the same topic that I just posted on another thread about Newt:

I don’t blame anyone for changing his mind, as long as he changes it to the correct position. I haven’t had all the answers my entire life, either.

When the topic of global warming was first raised, no one knew that so much of the data was fraudulent. Even accomplished scientists were taken in. For awhile I too was concerned, and only because of certain experiences I had and some fortunate meetings I had was I able to come to the right conclusions. So I don’t blame Newt for not realizing at first that anthropogenic global warming is a fraud. He has since realized the error of his ways and corrected himself.

Clever of Newt to mention Saul Alinsky. Now millions of people who have never heard of him will Google him and find out.

Does Cramer think unprofitable companies will hire more people? WTF was that stupid question?

Their attack will now shift to ‘well, he has said what he said and he’s flip flopping so much I can’t keep up; what will he say next?’ It is the essence of the ‘my candidate by default’ strategy, which ruins the momentum to throw barry the bassturd out of the white hut and results ultimately in Milt Rominy being the nominee.

"DAMN" !!!


Newt sounded GREAT in that Youtube Video ...

I'm a Sarah Palin man myself, and then Herman Cain ...

But ... HONESTLY ... Newt's got the BRAINs and EXPERIENCE to to an incredible President ...


BTW ... one of the BEST parts of that Youtube video was when Newt "manfully" told the Liberal MSM to "Stand-Down" ...



Does Newt Ginrich = Winston Churchill ???

Whether you back Newt's candidacy or not I think his presence in these debates is great. He keeps slapping down the lib-media and stupid lib policies in spectacular fashion. He also has given credit to the good ideas of every other candidate rather than looking to tear them down.

I would like to see similar excerpted compilations of the other candidate's debate Q&As.

Newt only realized his errors of his way when he’s contemplating a run for the W.H......He is the ultimate panderer and opportunist. He’s smart and a good debater but I doubt anyone actually trusts him

His command of data and facts is astonishing to behold. It reminds me of what happens when the Prime Minister of England is grilled in the Parliament. Newt is the only one up there in these ‘sessions’ who could manage that grilling.

He doesn’t flinch when they try to cow him with political correctness and he doesn’t let it slide when they try to cover their gotcha questions with their phony sincerity either. He’s not my first or second choice for Pres. but he sure brings it to the libs rhetorically.

“It only got better. Victory or death!”

Rush said recently of Newt, I paraphrase: You think of Newt what could have been.”

I look at this video and think, what could be.

I wish I could get my gut past the ‘Newt has way too much baggage’ stage...

Does he really have too much baggage for this day and age? In truth he has less than some of our Founding Fathers or many other good presidents did.

He's had ample opportunity, but he hasn't. Everybody complains about these debates which the GOP agreed upon, but Newt is capitalizing upon them, along with a few of the others.

I'm not a big fan, but I could easily get behind him. While I think everybody but Rommey/Huntsman could defeat Obama, Newt is the only one who could truly crush him in the debates.
