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.
Hes very serious. Hes 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 dont think thats happened since I had children, said Cushman.
Newt Gingrich wrote the forward to his daughters new book, The Essential American: 25 Documents and Speeches Every American Should Own, which highlights the great documents and speeches in our nations history
I asked Cushman what about the country today has made her father more serious than every before about running for President.
I think hes 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 its 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 its 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, its not just partisan politics. Iits not just an arguing about tax cuts. We have a fundamental disconnect about how this country should operate, said Cushman of her fathers 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. Its up to him. But of course I would support him. Ive always helped him in his campaigns ever since I was six [years old], so its been a long, long time.
All of my life, hes always done what he has thought was best for our country. And I think that hell take all of that into consideration. So well see in February or March, said Cushman.
It doesn’t matter if he runs or not. He is not electable.
What a joke.
Which of his 3 wives is she the daughter of?
This household is equally serious about not voting for his sorry rino butt.
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.
>> Which of his 3 wives is she the daughter of?
Why does the mother have to be any of the three?
Maybe it’s Pelosi. Newt’s had *her* on his couch...
Please, please don’t run, Newt.
It's his funeral.
Harold Stassen is dead, so Newt is probably as good a replacement as we will get? ;-)
I guess Newt didn’t get the memo that RINO’s need not apply this time around.
We’ve had enough RINOS, Newt. Maybe you can go teach or something.
You should have thought of that before you had disgusting oral interplay of the worst kind with Nancy on the couch... in PUBLIC!!!
Too late for you now, NEWT. Way, way, late... you Global Warming Lying Bastard, you.
