This is my case.

GINGRICH: Now, I am going to give you a series of solutions that are big enough to get America back on the right track. And I think this has been the greatest challenge of this campaign.

We have lots of bickering; we have lots of arguments about this and that. We have virtually no discussion of what does it really take to take the most complicated society in the world, the largest economy in the world, and move it back to being the most successful, most prosperous, safest and freest country in the world.

So I am going to try this afternoon to set the stage for that.

And we have tons of details at — any of you want, to just go to my first name dot org. You will see an immense amount of material.

But the standard here is that solutions big enough to get America working again — and the principle is to unleash the American people to rebuild the America we love.

Let me start with jobs: If I am the nominee, with your help, I will ask the entire Republican ticket to campaign with me on the pledge that when the Congress comes in on January 3, it will stay in session, and by January 20, when I am sworn in, it will have repealed Obamacare.


GINGRICH: It will have repealed Dodd-Frank.


GINGRICH: It will have repealed Sarbanes-Oxley.


GINGRICH: All three of those are job killing bills, which centralized bureaucracy in Washington DC and increased the corruption of the political system. All three should be repealed and held at the desk until I am sworn in. That afternoon, on the very first day, we should sign the repeal of all three. That's a reasonable start.


GINGRICH: Two hours after the Inaugural Address — that was just the hors d’oeurve. We haven't got around to serious work, yet.

After the Inaugural Address, I will spend it signing executive orders and presidential findings. All of them will have been published by October 1. The country will know precisely what this campaign is about.

The very first executive order will abolish all of the White House czars, as of that moment.


GINGRICH: We will sign, that day, an executive order, which as of that moment, approves of the Canadian pipeline to Houston, period.


GINGRICH: My message to Prime Minister Harper and the Canadian government is simple: You do not need a partnership with the Chinese. Give the American people a few months. When we beat Obama on election night, you can start buying equipment because we will approve it on January 20th.


GINGRICH: There will be an executive order to move the State Department, to put the embassy in Jerusalem as of that day, period.


GINGRICH: We will, that day, reinstate Ronald Reagan's “Mexico City Policy” — No money for abortion overseas, period.


GINGRICH: And we will have an executive order to repeal every act of religious bigotry by the Obama administration period.

My goal, with your help, is that by the time President Obama lands in Chicago, we will have repudiated at least 40 percent of his government on the opening-day.

You deceive yourself.

Newt has no more baggage than you, me or anyone else, including (especially) all politicians.

He only has had more scrutiny from the media.

This is a perfect opportunity to cite John 8:7—”Whichever one of you has committed no sin may throw the first stone.”

And what gives distinction to Gingrich is the fact that he has repented.

Spoken like a true American there Nathan!
"they will do so based mostly on word-of-mouth and television image…"
Perhaps Newt should loose 25 pounds, tint his hair, apply Botox©, bleach his teeth and, naw, never mind…
"with Romney we will have put in place a Rockefeller-Bush-Romney Republican and we will get half measures which will simply not do because this is Europe 1939…"
A very well stated and prophetic analogy.
the man is a ruthless prick. He is a hypocrite who sends surrogates out to do his slanders and

turns a smiling face to the mothers of America and poses as the picture of innocence and succeeds in getting the women's vote…"
Now that, my FRiend, is a statement for the ages.
