“The GOP establishment elite lining up behind Mitt Romney are either tone deaf or brain dead.”
I respectfully disagree. The GOP nomenklatura are very informed and deliberate in what they do. They are frauds, dissemblers and quislings with regard to their espoused ‘conservative values’. The GOP machine differs from the Democrat machine about as much as the Mensheviks differed from the Bolsheviks. A difference of degree, not of kind.
For the most part we are stuck with them this cycle, but eventually there will be a separation.
Nice to see the MSM reporting the truth for a change ;)
The sole purpose of the Republican Party is to serve as an ineffective alternative to the Democrat Party.
My mom actually bought me this book for my birthday.
We are no longer on speaking terms.
Bad priorities my friend. One day your mother will be gone, and you will wish with all your heart you could speak with her, and you won’t be able to. If this is all that is between you, resume contact and agree to disagree on this point. Someone like that suet pudding “The Arsonist” is not worth breaking family ties over.
Exactly and brilliantly stated!
Karl’s been spending time at the buffet bar a bit much, it seems.. He’s become his GrandOldDad’sParty Poster Boy. (no offense intended)
And oyu can rest assured they will push harder the closer we get to the Primaries. They aren’t even close to being done. And you can rest assured that they are the ones who have orchestrated the Cain take down. And while no way I’ll vote for scummy Newt, he better watch his back because he is next.
LOL, there was a time not so long ago that Rove & Bush could do not wrong, just like Scott Brown of MA. In the end most of the folks here get snookered by the sales pitch from grossly dishonest pols. Even now the line up for the GOP is worthless. It makes no diff anymore which party is in power, the results are the same. Unless folks get off their duffs our liberties will be a thing of the past.
“Thank you for visiting York Dispatch. We are sorry the article that you requested is no longer available.”
What I was looking for was a speech he gave in York, PA last year.
He said we were ‘evolving’ into the ‘miltitant wing’ of the GOP. I wondered at the time if that was comparable to ‘the taliban wing’ of the Republican Party.
Yeah? Well, next to mittney, he’s ALSO the most DEVIOUS man in the room.
A wise observation; the person's mother probably didn't know anything about the book, just saw it is by Rove and about politics.
Thanks - a little choppy but I’ll do more research.
I realize Newt has taken unpopular positions in the past - and sometimes his speeches take ‘on the one hand and on the other hand’ perspectives. Overall, I believe he would pursue a Constitutional agenda as POTUS. As VP - he would be a huge asset for the Big Cainhuna;)
Well, here is what I have compiled from other FReepers and other sources:
Conservatives Laugh Off Gingrich Presidential Dreams
Newt Gingrich a wolf in sheep’s clothing
Left Wing of the GOP - Complete vetting of Newt Gingrich
Stop the Insanity say no to Newt
Newt for 2012? No, thanks.
Gingrich seeks middle path on immigration
“GINGRICH: No, but let me say this, John. No serious citizen who’s concerned about solving this problem should get trapped into a yes/no answer in which you’re either for totally selling out protecting America or you’re for totally kicking out 20 million people in a heartless way. There are — there are humane, practical steps to solve this problem, if we can get the politicians and the news media to just deal with it honestly.”June 2011 Debate Transcript
Gingrich - supporting the individual mandate, calling Paul Ryan’s budget plan “radical”
NEWT: ERA OF REAGAN IS OVER
“In 1994, Newt Gingrich described himself as a... fan of the ideas espoused in the book, The Third Wave by Alvin Toffler, in which homosexuality, promiscuity, adultery, divorce, and abortion are all viewed as perfectly normal and even desirable. He said that in order to understand him, you should read the book, The Third Wave by Toffler. This book is written from the perspective of someone who is writing a letter to Americas Founding Fathers, in which he describes the Constitution and the principles of limited government that guided our Founding Fathers as becoming increasing irrelevant, and obsolete, and hence in need of being radically redesigned and replaced!....When Newt Gingrich became the Speaker of the House in 1994, he recommended The Third Wave as required reading for all of his Congressional colleagues!”
Newt Gingrich supported GATT, NAFTA and WTO while in Congress.
Mr. Toffler encourages the DEATH of the American Constitutional system. Mr Gingrich who wrote the forward in Toffler book “Creating A New Civilization” obviously agrees.
Newt supported an individual mandate in health insurance

GLOBAL WARMING/CAP and TRADE
Newt: Too Green for 2012
1989: Rep. Newt Gingrich (R-GA) co-sponsors the ambitious Global Warming Prevention Act (H.R. 1078), which finds that the Earths 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 Gores 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 Gores global warming, citing the largest snowstorm in New York Citys 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 Gores global warming was coming to the East Coast. And it does make you wonder sometimes, doesnt it, how theoretical statisticians in the middle of the largest snowstorm in New York Citys history could stand there and say, I dont care what its doing. Its 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 theres a package there thats very, very good. And frankly, its 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 theres a package there thats very, very good. And frankly, its 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 Gores 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 dont think that we have conclusive proof of global warming. And I dont 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 cheaperwhich would help create jobs and save Americans moneyPresident 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 worseand raising taxes during a deep economic recession will only accelerate American job losses. [Newsweek, 4/4/09]
Pell grant for K-12 schools - Gingrich thinks more Federal government involvement in schools is a good thing.
Gingrich supports radical leftist Dede Scozzafava (whom he champions as a moderate Republican) is getting heated pushback from Dallas Tea Party activists raising their voices at Borders Books in Dallas.
Here Gingrich snarks that conservatives who object to backing radical leftists dont think Reagan was conservative enough:
I should have mentioned that my last post was a joke. My bad.
Actually, my mother wouldn’t be caught dead buying Tokyo Rove’s book. She’s a leftist Democrat who’d be occupying Wall Street if she were in better health. She spends her days on the Daily Kos and Alternet, I believe.
My mom and I get along great, as long as we don’t discuss politics. We do give each other gag gifts, however. Last Christmas (”yuletide” in my mom’s native tongue) I got a subscription to the International Socialist Review. She got a copy of Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism from me.
Sorry for any confusion.
Newton Gingrich could “win” the debates with Obama but still be declared the loser because he speaks above the level of simple platitutdes that the sheeple can comprehend.
Ah! Much relieved. I had a cousin actually do that with his mother. It was sad for both of them.
Ok, she probably just thought she was buying you a book you would like even if she didn’t. And it’s hard to come up with gift ideas for people who have so much.
