Skip to comments.Gingrich: Contract with America round 2 (Gingrich, Steele, RNC alert)
Posted on 11/13/2009 2:54:47 PM PST by rabscuttle385
Newt Gingrich, the former Republican House speaker and purveyor of the GOP "Contract With America'' that helped his party win control of the House after President Bill Clinton's election, says GOP chairman Michael Steele has started work on a new framework for 2010 that he is calling "First principles.''
"I've been talking with Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, '' Gingrich said today, speaking with students at C-SPAN's Cable Center Class.
"He is developing a first principles model that I think is a very exciting , positive step in the right direction,'' said Gingrich, who has said that he will decide by February about waging his own campaign for president. "B September , it might be very, very good for the Republicans in the House and Senate to have a common ground on which to campaign, whether they call it a Contract for America or some other device.
"Having a positive set of things that say, 'if you elect us, these are the positive steps we will take,'' Gingrich said, on a program that C-SPAN3 is airing at 5 pm EST. This "may well be the key building block to really become the alternative party, not the opposition party.''...
"If the Democrats stay stuck over on a very left wing program and if they continue to have a job-killing record in Congress, I think by September and October you could suddenly have a very exciting election.''

Could you upgrade this please? Thanks :)
Gingrich is the personification of the guy that appoints GOP nominations in smoke filled rooms.
Looks like they are giving THEMSELVES a REFRESHER COURSE in FIRST Principles.....we don’t need it....or them!
Get lost Newt. Thanks to you we lost NY-23. AH.
Just say “NO” to Newt! He’s a RINO!
Gingrich and Steele can both take a hike- we need new faces.
Gingrich is a disappointment, and I have no idea what Steele is, really.
Contract with America 2, as in only 2 people support this, Gingrich and Steele.
The No. 2 issue is energy.
That one better be good. Drill, mines, split atoms. Tell the UN to stuff it.
“He is developing a first principles model that I think is a very exciting , positive step in the right direction,’’ said Gingrich
The trouble is it won’t be ready to roll out untill after the 2012 elelction, and sure as hell won’t help the election in 2010.
Go away, both of you.
We have sen Gingrich’s idea of going in the right direction. Backing RINO’s like Scuzzyflavor isnt my idea of what Republicans need
Get lost, Newt. You thought that Michael Steele would back you for president if you backed his favorite candidate, Dede Scozzafava.
Well, that didn’t work out quite the way you expected. So, get lost. And Steele, you get lost, too. Bunch of losers running the party.
Newt might have a little credibility on this if he’d bothered to fight to get Round #1 enacted.
Blow it out your ear, Newt. We ain’t buying it.
Didnt Newt win the house and senate with a repub in the white house and didnt they accomplish nothing. I know they got welfare reform through but that was just reform. Worked for a coupke of years but whatever happenend to that? Wait what happened to ridding ourselves of the NEA?
After the NY-23 fiasco I don’t want Newt or any other GOP ‘leadership’ making any kind of Contracts with America.
Sorry I meant the dept of eduction.
