VIDEO: Daughter Says Newt Gingrich Is ‘Very Serious’ About Running For President
Human Events ^ | December 27, 2010 | Emily Miller

Posted on 12/27/2010 1:19:33 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Jackie Gingrich Cushman said that her father Newt Gingrich is more intent that ever on running for President in 2012. Gingrich has said that he will announce his decision on running in February or March.

“He’s very serious. He’s much more serious than he ever has been. And I can tell that because we actually sat down -- just the two of us -- for two hours recently. And I don’t think that’s happened since I had children,” said Cushman.

Newt Gingrich wrote the forward to his daughter’s new book, The Essential American: 25 Documents and Speeches Every American Should Own, which highlights the great documents and speeches in our nation’s history

I asked Cushman what about the country today has made her father more serious than every before about running for President.

“I think he’s very concerned because when you get down to the core argument-- when you talk about taxes, when you talk about where we are -- the fundamental difference is that conservatives believe that God gave people rights and we loan them to the government. They believe, as Calvin Coolidge did, that it’s the people money, and the government is supposed to spend it as wisely as possible.

“If you look at the language of President Obama and his administration, they really believe that it’s the government's money. They really believe that they can solve all those problems from Washington. That is a huge, fundamental difference.

“As a country we have to come to grips with, it’s not just partisan politics. Iit’s not just an arguing about tax cuts. We have a fundamental disconnect about how this country should operate,” said Cushman of her father’s perspective.

Cushman, a syndicated columnist and the author, said that her father asked her if she wanted him to run. She told him that it was his decision to make. “It’s up to him. But of course I would support him. I’ve always helped him in his campaigns ever since I was six [years old], so it’s been a long, long time.”

“All of my life, he’s always done what he has thought was best for our country. And I think that he’ll take all of that into consideration. So we’ll see in February or March,” said Cushman.

Great....the Establishment would push this has-been/loser on us and waste the Primary with State Run Media promoting the three Stooges (Romney-Huckster-Gingrich)....anything to avoid having to have the Progressive matched up against a REAL Conservative.

Why does the mother have to be any of the three?

Maybe it’s Pelosi. Newt’s had *her* on his couch...

Gingrich has used up his “get out of jail free” cards. He needs to retire into the background and help unravel this fascist government he helped establish. Please retire Newt and help a true patriot win the presidency and save us from this Marxist-in-Chief’s fascist policies that are destroying all our freedoms including the freedom of conscious. Despicable and you thought you could compromise with the devil. Shame on you.

Already the republican heirarchy is engaged in stirring the pot and muddying the waters for the next election. They know the conservative flank is restless so the big boys'll try anything to make sure the slate is composed of those they figure they can suborn. Or of those whom they have already suborned. Next we'll be hearing from the Huckabee household, the Bush household, then the Colin Powell household. There are a few of us who keep exhorting the right to not base all of its hopes upon the ballot box but everyone keeps making the same mistake. Doesn't anyone get this? We are being played for fools. Over and over again. Time's a wasting.

Sorry Newt, but a man has got to know his limitations. Your time came and has gone.

Juan McCain didn't and he failed miserably at the cost of the nation.

No way Newt-ured.

You managed to redirect the mandate of the class of '94 from their elected mission of reducing the size of the FedGov Beast into your ridiculous and emasculated 'contract' on America, preserving the Elite and the status quo.

Go write another sappy book or something.

You stinking fraud, you are as unwelcome as turd in a punchbowl.

Newt is an insufferable narcissistic bloviating snob. Of course, that might have had something to do with his failed marriages too. But we definitely don't need his kind running the country. Heck, we have Obama; that's bad enough.

At least he can speak.

Not boring.

Idea man.

That’s about the limit of my pro-Newt list.

I posted on a recent thread that I saw ONE and only ONE upside if he ran, which is it would help the process in terms of public debate. And one of the things that should happen in a GOP debate is that Newt should be asked to explain himself about global warming and the rest. Oh, there’s so much there he needs to “’splain”, as Ricky used to demand of Lucy.

Instead of just slinking off somewhere, I think he should stand up and be confronted...
