Gingrich: I Will Grow Jobs Like Reagan
blogs.foxnews.com ^ | Dec 27, 2011 | By Joy Lin

Posted on 12/27/2011 7:18:10 PM PST by Jim Robinson

Dubuque, Iowa - Continuing to contrast himself against Mitt Romney, the "Massachusetts moderate," Newt Gingrich declared he would grow the economy as president by reining in the government the way he had done with Ronald Reagan and Jack Kemp.

"In 1982, Reagan was talked into a tax increase, I opposed it. Kemp and I led the fight against it. Reagan said it was a mistake; it was the biggest single mistake of his administration. In 1990, President Bush wanted to raise taxes and I opposed it. We had a huge fight. The majority of Republicans voted no. And this fight still goes on today."

Gingrich said he had experienced this standoff twice already and had the experience to win the current standoff between tax cutters and tax hikers, putting the front-runner Mitt Romney in the latter category.

"He's a fine person, I've said that publicly," Gingrich said of the national front-runner whose negative ads have undercut the former House Speaker's position in the polls. "He is a good manager, he is a competent. He did very, very well with the Winter Olympics but there's a huge difference between the philosophy of a supply side conservative in the Kemp-Reagan tradition, and the philosophy of a Massachusetts moderate. I would dramatically cut taxes."

The former House Speaker has been criticized for taking credit for the achievements of former President Bill Clinton and Gingrich said he "gets to claim half the credit" for the "bipartisan effort."

"I was effective. I actually got the deal done," Gingrich said. "So it wasn't 112% pure. But it worked. And we got a liberal Democrat to sign welfare reform, we got a liberal Democrat to sign tax cuts, we got a liberal Democrat to sign four consecutive balance budgets. Now I think that's pretty effective conservatism."

Great, but will he cut government like a sawmill cuts wood?

I assume your post means you support him?

I’m still torn about him.

Could you please elaborate on your personal reasons for supporting him?

It sure does. George Herbert Walker Bush confirmed that the other day. He still does not like Newt for opposing him on the tax increase. Maybe this also one of the reasons the RINO establishment is against Newt for President. GO NEWT!

I’m not sure about this. Newt may be our only choice. But I’m afraid that even 2013 may be too long.

The vote to raise the debt again is the key. We cannot allow it.

How to stop it? I don’t know.

Do any of you?

Looks very much like Newt is probably the ONLY man with enough "piss & vinegar" to step into the midst of the den of thieves & snakes and get any real results in backing them down.

Anyone else would be like casting Martin Short as the lead in the "Terminator".

He’s a genuine pro-life, pro-defense, supply-side Reaganite. A battle scarred veteran warrior of the Reagan Revolution who went on to found and lead the successful Republican Revolution to continue and expand on Reagan’s pro-liberty, pro-America ideas and policies.

He led the effort to take the Republican majority after the Democrats had held it for 40 years. He cut taxes, cut spending, cut regulations, cut unemployment, cut welfare, cut the deficit and balanced the federal budget four years running. All of this ensured that the Reagan economy continued to soar during his term and beyond. He blocked HillaryCare and much of Clinton’s agenda. And he did all of the above under a Democrat president. Not a bad conservative record at all!

But he has warts and stepped on some mighty big toes on the way, including Mr. Read My Lips himself. But I believe he has sought redemption and forgiveness for his real sins and has matured and settled in.

I believe he has plans for drastically cutting taxes, spending, regulations and bureaucratic government, including cutting over a hundred federal welfare programs and returning them to the states and the people, as well as privatizing social security and medicare. And firing all of Obama’s czars, firing EVERYONE at the EPA, reign in the federal reserve and rein in the liberal activist judiciary, and yes, repeal ObamaCare and dismantle the Marxist government.

And he wants to encourage and build on AMERICAN energy, manufacturing, farming, and business and industry of all types. His drastic reductions of bureacracy, regulations, taxes, spending and even restructuring depreciation to allow new equipment to be written off in one year will boost the economy and create an environment for JOBS!

These are not timid or moderate trimming here and there or rearranging the deck chairs. These are radical reductions in the size and scope of government. This is reining in the federal beast, restoring the balance of powers among the three co-equal branches of government, and restoring the states and the people to their sovereign positions per the constitution, ie, the feds do not RULE over us or the states!

He’s a historian and statesman who understands the significance of the founding principle that we were created equal by our Creator (God) and endowed with certain unalienable rights. And believes that these rights are indeed inalienable and wants to undo the wrongs that have been done to us by the liberals and progressives and activist judges and all who have eroded away our constitution and attempted to destroy our God-given Liberty.

And I believe that his record of successful accomplishments says he means business and that he has the ability to continue beyond the successful Reagan Revolution, beyond the successful Republican Revolution and make the Tea Party Revolution the successful revolution we all pray it can be.

The reason the GOP establishment is fearful of Newt is that they know what he is.

First and foremost, Newt Gingrich is an HISTORIAN.

He aided Reagan in cementing Reagan’s place in the history books.

The GOP establishment and the left are terrified that if Newt wins, he will OUT REAGAN Reagan as he would not want to play second fiddle in all future history books.

I thought amnesty was. You can roll back a tax cut.. Not so sure you could strip all those people of their citizenship. Where was Newt on that one?

Thanks for this thread.

HEY! YEAH YOU, Nanny State Newt! Let me give you a quick reality check!

President Reagan rescued the US Economy by encouraging private business to “grow the economy.”

The economy grew, but the increase in predatory taxation and micromanagement regulation by the US Federal Government, grew much faster. Hence, it is no longer possible to “grow the economy.”

Thus today, it is not possible to “grow the economy” at a rate greater than 3 % per year, despite the best efforts of the Federal Reserve.

It is all well and good to repeal this taxation, or repeal that regulation, but those necessary actions do not resolve the question “Is Washington the problem?”

The entirety of Washington must be uniformly reduced. Rather than debating winners and losers, everyone who receives Federal money gets the same “Pay Haircut.”

Reagan made several mistakes. And he was genuinely sorry for each and every one. Gingrich has made several mistakes. And he’s admitted to them and asked forgiveness. And I believe he means it.

I’ve never seen Romney admit to any of his many mistakes, never apologized, never asked the forgiveness of his constituents, or his fellow citizens whom he severely damaged, or his prospective voting base to whom he lies daily. Not even for the thousands of babies that were murdered on his “abortion should be safe and legal because Roe v Wade is settled law” watch and are still being murdered daily due to his socialist RomneyCare program and for which we taxpayers are now footing the bill. All we get is him praising his past performance and saying that ALL of his past positions, quite frankly, have been “conservative” positions, including RomneyCare. This man is a liar. An evil liar

Any man who can say the things Romney said on these clips ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=7OQoBxZZPqU ) is evil.

Even if he fell down on his knees and begged for forgiveness on national TV, I could never trust him because he’s an accomplished evil liar. God may forgive him if he repents and asks for redemption, but I’ll never trust him.

And no way in hell will I ever vote for him. Don’t care if that ultimately drives me into bankruptcy. I’ll be going out the same way I came in... naked and penniless.

Then he should be happy to get a picture taken with you.

We're not all famous enough to meet with guys like that, but you represent a whole lot of diverse (fractious, pain-in-the-ass) conservatives. ;)

If he wants this vote, he may not be able to reach me (actually, I don't want his security detail here), but he can reach you.

And I do trust you. Eventually, sometimes..

Don’t get me wrong. I agree. If it’s Newt or Mittens I’d take the sub zero snow storm crawling over broken glass in a pair of shorts to vote for Newt... (uphill of course)

Mittens you could carry me to the car in 70 degree sunny weather and carry me in to the voting booth and I still won’t vote for him.

Newt’s our best (only) shot. I understand that. I’m close to bankrupt now so if it’s Romney or Zero lets sink this thing and get it over with. At least then the blame would fall squarely on the party it belongs on.

That’s why Newt wants to drastically cut the government, cut the bureaucracy, cut the regulations and cut the taxes. Privatize social security and medicare, rein in the federal reserve, fire the EPA, fire the czars, repeal ObamaCare, repeal Dodd-Frank, repeal Sarbanes-Oxley, dismantle the Marxist nanny state, and return all entitlement and welfare programs to the states and the people. And reign in the activist judiciary, restore the balance of powers between the co-equal branches of government and restore sovereignty to the states and the people, ie, restore our constitutionally limited government and our liberty!

If it's between Gingrich and Romney I'll vote for Gingrich, but anyone who thinks NAFTA Newt got to be Speaker of the House by being and outside-the-beltway, slash-and-burn conservative needs to have their head examined. He played the pork barrel, rig the numbers, footsie with the Democrats Washington shuffle as well as anyone. It's amazing how many people try and whitewash his 30 year history just because he talks purty in a few debates.

I have no faith in him governing like a conservative.

Nope, didn’t get a picture with Newt.

But not only did I get his signature, but his wife’s also.

She was thrilled to be asked, you know the wives don’t get much attention.

I put away the black marker, and gave her a special one in the color of red.

She liked that gesture, made her feel special I think.

The only way we have a chance to win the general election if it becomes about worlds colliding, about a clash of civilizations. That’s how far the left has gone, they are becoming a state within a state, founded on values that are anathema to America and her constitution. Obama is their God-King and the Occupy Wall Streeters are their growing legion of ground troops (I expect an alliance of convenience with the Paulestinians will be formed soon enough.).

For this fight, we need not just a man, but a myth, someone who brings with him not mere baggage, but the stuff of legend. Newt is a man who contains worlds within himself, at least two or three. He is a fearless champion who has the gravitas to roll with the punches against the worst barrages the left can throw at him, pull himself together and respond in kind by laying the smack down squarely on Barack’s shoulders. We need to be prepared for a clash of the titans. For that we need a lion, not a scarecrow. We cannot afford to bring Mittens to a Newt-fight.

Quix, barring a last minute entry by some mythical ‘super conservative’, Newt may well be all we have to choose from except Romney.

Sad to say, but essentially, we need to help the greater of two flawed people so that we can get rid of someone who is arguably evil incarnate.
