I agree with all of it
But what about homos in the military, Newt? This is the single most destructive advance of liberalism in the last generation, because it’s almost irreversible, unlike fiscal issues.
I like it, but in watching Politicians running for office: is he just saying it? will he follow thru? Is Gingrich a “say anything” politico like Romney?
...add in Gramm-Leach-Bliley and he'd have a winning trifecta ticket!
It would be good to see as many lib strongholds falls as is legally and humanly possible. I hope the Republicans win everywhere and have the power and the will to get the job done - ignoring the MSM all the way.
I was wondering who would make a good WH press secretary....at first I thought of Ann Coulter, but she may be a little too much, although it would be fun to watch. Then I thought of Michelle Malkin - sharp, forthright, firm, but not quite as bombastic.
Yup. That would be a good start..
An ambitious program, to be sure, but still, only a beginning.
Either dismantling practically everything since the time of Teddy Roosevelt, and replacing all those supposed functions with some kind of program that actually WORKS, or at least make the ones in place conform to the demands of a cost-benefit analysis from top to bottom, should be the scope of the national housecleaning that is long overdue.
We are certainly not getting all the government we are paying for. Which may be a good thing, come to think of it.
Newt is sounding better all of the time.
he is going after the crazed laws wewant tossed and not attacking his opponents in his own party.
Maybe now the rest of them will do the same.
Start telling us what we want to hear (and meaning it) and stop bad mouthing each other.
Newt also indicated ... that he’d invite former Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton, who has a pro-Israel record, to be his secretary of state. But he had one condition: “I will only appoint him if he will agree that his first job is the complete and thorough transformation of the State Department,” he said, “and the replacement of the current Foreign Service culture with a new entrepreneurial and aggressive culture dedicated to the proposition that defending freedom and defending America is the first business of the State Department.”
The usual naysayers will soon arrive with their ‘Newt failed’ mantra.
It is unrealistic to claim that a single individual has/had total power over the other 434 House members or can/could influence the additional 100 Senators.
Newt has had time to reflect on the impossible dream he attempted - and learned the lessons of compromise and good intentions. Jealousy, backstabbing and megalomania.
The world is a small place inhabited by billions of humans; divided into sovereign states having ancient grudges. Those billions have multiple religious factions, countless problems and agendas from starvation to climate scientists/fanatics, hundreds of languages, import and export inter-dependencies. All interfaced with our domestic policies and often in conflict with the Constitution.
It takes wisdom, patience and intellect to examine all the pressing concerns of our Nation; its reduced position in the world and the best course for our future foreign and domestic.
Newt’s commentary and explantion of these complexities is being confused with advocacy. I have confidence that Newt Gingrich has the patriotism, the experience and intelligence to make the right decisions for America and the conviction to influence legislators who believe, as he does, in this Nation’s history of liberty and justice.
We have to give President Gingrich what he needs: strong conservative majorities in the house and senate.
Not only to enable these announced repeals, but to keep Gingrich as conservative as possible.
Yes! SOX is a disaster, and has probably led to more fraud than any other regulatory attempt. It has made many lawyers fantastically wealthy, however, so it probably has its supporters.
This thread points to exactly what appeals in Newt. Those who weren’t around to see his genius in action in 1994 shouldn’t doubt it. Why the Republicans threw him overboard I’m not sure but they did.
Don’t get me wrong, he isn’t my kind of guy, and I don’t ‘like him’ but we may just NEED him right now.
And later that evening, between the inauguration balls, he could sign Executive Orders shutting down the Dept. of Education, the Dept. of Energy, and the EPA. That would be a pretty good first day’s work.
So what happens when Congress doesn’t pass repeals of those three Acts? I don’t see Republicans picking up the fifteen Senate seats that they would need to avert a filibuster. What will a President Gingrich do then? What kind of Executive leadership should we expect from him if all this has not already been done for him when he takes office? I don’t see him addressing the reality of that.
If Newt keeps blowing me kisses with common sense proposals I may have to vote for him.
Obama promised lower healthcare cost if Obamacare was passed which it did. The prices didn't go down as was promised, they skyrocketed. Now is time to eliminate the reason it skyrocketed, Obamacare.
