He’s got guts and is not only not afraid to take on the MSM, he seems to derive pleasure from taking them on.

Hahaha. Too bad Paul, only talks the talk...and every now and then the truth comes out about how he really is a lefty and hasn’t amounted to a thing during his long career in politics.

He does make a great cult leader though.

We love Uncle Dr. Paul, and promise to take care of him no matter how far gone he becomes.

I think Newt has harsh criticism and a major overhaul planned for the EPA. I believe he is well aware of the threat the EPA has been on American successes and will make the needed changes, starting with tossing out everyone and beginning anew.

Socialism is a very real thing, and if you ignore it, it will come back to haunt you. Gingrich believes the government is the solution to all problems. Look at the 1989 environmental bill he cosponsored with Nancy Pelosi. Or the climate change legislation he currently supports that will destroy small business.

You have got to be kidding me!

Name anyone who can match Newt’s accomplishments on what were important issues and then name anyone who has a new plan of initiatives.

people like you aren’t voting for someone, you are voting to be something in your ideal world we shouldn’t be.

So who is your ideal candidate in this race and why is he/she the best candidate.

What do they stand for? Why is it important.

Oh, and Eff Paul, my Kuhrazee Uncle or Mitt the Weathervane who actually has no position or specific plan for whatever his ideas for America are.

Gingrich is a socialist and he hates conservatives. Don’t fall for the media lies. From starting out as a Rockefeller Republican, to spending the 2000s working for Nancy Pelosi, he went further left. He spent one year (1994) pretending to be a conservative. Don’t fall for the media shoving him down our throat. At least Santorum is still in the race.

I believe he has articulated and understands the conservative message better than anyone, and in an inspirational way.

I am assuming when you say "Don’t fall for the media shoving him down our throat." you are being sarcastic. Otherwise, your opinions will take this into consideration in your future posts.

I agree. Just because he wins SC doesn’t mean he’ll play well across America. GW didn’t have the best debating skills and won twice. Too much emphasis put on debating obama. He can’t use a teleprompter during the debate so I don’t know what everyone’s afraid of. Santorum can maybe deliver PA and OH, critical states. The real question is can conservatives alone carry America. We’re putting the country at stake betting it all on Newt. But I guess we don’t have much of a choice now.

I was in the same boat and wanted to hold onto my moral authority but, I really had to look inward at all my flaws and felt I came up just as short as anyone.

Then I considered my strengths and thought of Newt and how much I loved what he accomplished, his sharp tongue for those who justly needed eviscerating and his wit.

People are deluding themselves and saying he hasn’t accomplished a thing.

He has accomplished some pretty big things and I feel 100% confident he will carry out most of his 21st Century Contract in his 1st term.

I mean, what’s not to like in that plan?

What’s everyone elses big idea?

I haven’t seen em. Haven’t heard em.

Newt had a plan I agreed with when he was a representative and he has a plan I agree with and most of us have been demanding as President.

Go Newt!

Look at the 1989 environmental bill he cosponsored with Nancy Pelosi. Or the climate change legislation he currently supports that will destroy small business.

Gingrich has espoused a Conservationist, conservative approach to the environment. I moved to SoCal in 1977, and the SMOG was horrendous. I remember running the mile in 7th grade and feeling the direct effects of the SMOG that was permeating the air. Orange skies stretched the horizon at the time.

The air quality has improved drastically and my children do not have to suffer the same effects where your lungs tighten up and it is harder to breathe. There are certain things that need to be done to conserve our environment and Gingrich is not in denial regarding this fact.

I would much prefer a conservative to be making the decisions on what and when we require certain regulations, than the leftist solutions, or the extremists who want to bury their heads and do nothing.

Well, this election for you will be a mulligan.

I have decided to support the big picture initiatives and Newt is going to accomplish them.

You can stand on whatever moral high ground you want but the other candidates don’t have a plan and will likely be flailing around looking for support, even as the waters rise.

No, I luv Rick. Then I luv Michelle. Hell, I’d give Herman a big hug but the bottom line is they are no longer in the race.

Them that’s left don’t have any big picture plan.

Newt does and has a record of achievement which I have defending for years even to point of calling our local radio news talker to correct the record of just who actually owns the responsibility for Welfare Reform, a Balanced Budget and lower Capital Gains Taxes.

All of which led to greater investment in American companies which grew so fast that unemployment went from a ho hum 7% to an amazing 4% in just a few years.

Ain’t no one up there has a record like that and ain’t no one up there has a new plan.

You are a good Freeper but consider what you want and occasionally we have to put aside or moral ideals and stop treating our leaders as Baseball stars who have some imperative to live up to our perfect ideals.

Just think about it or tell my your candidate is the better alternative.

thnx.

Record of Accomplishment and New Imperative to Return America to that Shinning City on a Hill

Well......

That’s where a record comes in. Not just the record of votes, which is often a meaningless toll of positions taken for political reasons on bills that were always going to pass or were never going to pass, but a record of actions taken that actually mattered.

A record of actions taken that actually mattered. Newt is the man who fits that description to a “T”.

He can identify what is most important to the country, develop a plan to overcome that challenge, articulate the the merits of overcoming the challenge and why the plan will work.

I hadn’t been for Gingrich initially and spent plenty of energy excoriating him, these last several years, for any number of sins he committed against the Republican/Conservative ideals. He seemed a turncoat of sorts, particularly when he babysat Pelosi on the couch.

On reflection, Newt is an attention whore seeking relevancy for his ideas and I guess I take him at his word that he made a few mistakes in his life and he has at least some regret for those decisions. God knows I am no angel and so I have to reflect on the man’s ability to get things done.

Newt gave us the Republican majority, the Contract with America and completed 2/3rds of his agenda while in office.

He now has a new plan for America and with what is likely to become a Congressional Super Majority and a Senate Majority, if not Super Majority, I believe he will absolutely accomplish his agenda.

Say goodbye to ObamaCare the single biggest scam and travesty foisted upon a free people who, by right, ought to have been given the opportunity to read the bill and debate it. Instead, a win at all cost, cheating agenda was developed and it was signed with most people never laying eyes on at least page 2 of this utopian dreck.

Executive Orders Positions:

The following are all within the executive powers to simply order and with the exception of securing the border within one year, they are all easily accomplished with the stroke of a pen and no way to challenge them in the legislature.

Keystone may be challenged in the courts but I think the Executive can order the EPA to approve, under National Security Priorities and it is a National Security issue, as well, a jobs issue.

As President, Newt, could actually have a very busy 1st week or month just on these initiative alone.

1. Eliminate the thirty-nine White House “Czar” positions created during the current administration. The president does not have the authority to appoint bureaucrats to power who are not accountable to the Congress.

2. “Mexico City Policy” of Respect for Life. Reauthorize President Ronald Reagan’s policy – also known as the “Mexico City Policy”— to stop tax payer dollars from being used to fund or promote abortions in foreign countries.

3. Restore conscience clause protections for Healthcare Workers.No American working in a medical environment should be forced to perform any procedure that he or she finds morally or ethically objectionable based on religious teaching. This protection should include, but not be limited to abortion. Existing conscience clause protections need to be strengthened.

4. Respect Each Sovereign Nation’s Choice of its Capital. Each sovereign nation, under international law and custom, may designate its own Capital. Accordingly, the U.S. State Department should be instructed to respect the choice of each sovereign nation and place the American embassy in their Capital. (Israel is the only country the United States discriminates against in this regard. The people of Israel have designated Jerusalem as their capital. Yet the United States retains its embassy in Tel Aviv.)

5. End the Attorney General’s Assault on the States. Instruct the Attorney General to withdraw all immigration-related lawsuits against states immediately, including those pending in Arizona and South Carolina. The Obama Administration refuses to enforce federal immigration laws, and instead sues states who are merely trying to enforce the laws that the federal government neglects. The Gingrich Administration will secure the border by Jan. 1, 2014 by any means necessary.

6. The Keystone Pipeline

Unleash American Energy by Approving the Keystone XL Pipeline. Instruct the State Department to approve a Presidential Permit immediately for the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that will send 700,000 barrels of oil a day from Great Plains and Southwestern states to Gulf Coast refineries lower staggering energy prices, and create up to 120,000 American jobs.

LEGISLATIVE PROPOSALS

Now we get into the details of an inclusive agenda that brings the people(you and me), through their representatives, into process. The TEA Party and conservatives are going to have a majority in both houses.

Let’s elect an Executive who will absolutely fulfill the promise of our ideals.

Executive Summary

Repeal Obamacare and pass a replacement that saves lives and money by empowering patients and doctors, not bureaucrats and politicians.
Return to robust job creation with a bold set of tax cuts and regulatory reforms that will free American entrepreneurs to invest and hire, as well as by reforming the Federal Reserve and creating a training requirement for extended federal unemployment benefits to encourage work and improve the quality of our workforce.
Unleash America’s full energy production potential in oil, natural gas, coal, biofuels, wind, nuclear oil shale and more, creating jobs, stimulating a sustainable manufacturing boom, lowering gasoline and other energy prices, increasing government revenues, and bolstering national security.
Save Medicare and Social Security by giving Americans more choices and tools to live longer, healthier lives with greater financial independence.
Balance the federal budget by freeing job-creators to grow the economy, reforming entitlements, and implementing waste cutting and productivity improvement systems such as Lean Six Sigma to eliminate waste and fraud. Pass a balanced budget amendment to keep it balanced.
Control the border by January 1, 2014 and establish English as the official language of government; reform the legal visa system, and make it much easier to deport criminals and gang members while making it easier for law abiding visitors to come to the US.
Revitalize our national security system to meet 21st century threats by restructuring and adequately funding our security agencies to function within a grand strategy for victory over those who seek to kill us or limit American power.
Maximize the speed and impact of medical breakthroughs by removing unnecessary obstacles that block new treatments from reaching patients and emphasizing research spending towards urgent national priorities, like brain science with its impact on Alzheimer’s, autism, Parkinson’s, mental health and other conditions knowledge of the brain will help solve.
Restore the proper role of the judicial branch by using the clearly delineated powers available to the president and Congress to correct, limit, or replace judges who violate the Constitution.
Enforce the Tenth Amendment by starting an orderly transfer of power and responsibility from the federal government back “to the states, respectively, or to the people,” as the Constitution requires. Over the next year, state and local officials and citizens will be asked to identify the areas which can be transferred back home.
Newt gave us the three most important victories of the 90’s Welfare Reform, Balanced Budget and Reduced Taxes. I hope I don’t need to describe the benefits of those victories. They ought to be obvious to everyone by now.

Lastly, there have been some reports that Newt shouldn’t get all the credit. Really? Then perhaps we marginalize the accomplishments of Washington, Roosevelt, Kennedy and ….wait for it… Reagan.

Do we really want to go down the road with that kind of adolescent sophistry and parsing of what happened?

Newt is the guy who thought of these big things, proposed them and shepherded their implementation?

Newt has once again identified what is important to us now, at this time and described how we can get there with our representative majorities. He has done it before and I declare Newt Gingrich was then and is Now a leader.

We should elect Newt Gingrich to the Presidency of the United States

Look at their accomplishments. Newt allied himself with Ronald Reagan to build the Reagan Coalition, the Religious Right, and the Republican majority (together the Reagan Revolution) which directly led the downfall of the Soviet Union, the Contract with America, government reforms, less government, tax cuts, a balanced budget, and the great, long-standing Reagan economy.

Romney, on the other hand, vehemently denied Ronald Reagan and aligned himself with Ted Kennedy and the left. Romney accomplished installing liberal big government programs, defended and promoted Roe v Wade and legalized abortion as “settled law,” advocated and implemented RomneyCare with its liberty killing government mandates against formerly free citizens and its taxpayer funded or subsidized and mandated abortion procedures. He ran and governed to the left of Ted Kennedy on the “gay agenda” resulting in gay marriage in Massachusetts. He appointed liberal judges and liberal appointees throughout his government. Under his “leadership” conservatism and the Republican party was all but destroyed in Massachusetts.

Romney is one evil liberal progressive. No way in hell will MittBots be allowed to support this abortionist, big government, socialist scumbag on FR!

Guess my message isn’t clear enough. I have to keep repeating it and zotting would be MittBots.

Oh but that didn’t stop Romney from invoking Reagan and returning us the that Shining City on a Hill in his ridiculous speech tonight.

This from the same guy who proclaimed:
“Look, I was an Independent during the time of Reagan/Bush. I’m not trying to return to Reagan/Bush”

Oh and then there’s this charming call for collaborative ideas between opposing ideals(Uhm, it’s stoopid and he denounces “The Contract with America” so don’t hit your head on the desk):

If it comes down to a choice between Newt and Mittens, I'll have to support Newt. But saying he's better than Mittens is setting the bar pretty low.

The fact that Newt let himself be taken in by that fraud Alvin Toffler is a definite mark against him. Future Sh(l)ock indeed!

Newt reminds me of a fireworks display. Lots of scintillating ideas flashing forth, then burning out with no results.

Is the current crop of Republican candidates the best we can do? Can't the country that produced Washington, Jefferson, Adams, etc., do any better than this gang? If not, God help us!

You seem to have a problem with looking over the top of your rut and thinking about the future.

The future is what Newt is all about. His ability to think about the future and shape a plan to get there is why he is feared. His competitors fear thinking about any thing beyond tomorrow or at best nest week.

Newt can see 50 years.

The government forcing me to buy health insurance is not a conservative message I want articulated. Closing down small business because of a manufactured “climate change” crisis is not a conservative message I want articulated. Preserving our Constitution is “social engineering” is not a conservative message I want articulated. While Ronald Reagan was articulating a true conservative message, Gingrich was battling on behalf of the Rockefeller Republicans. In his Congressional race in ‘74 and ‘76 he proudly ran to the LEFT of his Democrat opponent.

Pay attention. Gingrich is not for conservation. He is for “Climate Change.” Conservation is something real. Climate change is a manufactured crisis. Climate change people are not regular environmentalists. Climate change environmentalists don’t care if you kill spotted owls, dump sewage in rivers, or create smog. They care about combating “climate change.” The way to combat “climate change,” is to allow the government to micromanage business and everything else. I don’t support that. Gingrich has been very honest about what he is. It’s depressing that the media is selling a bill of goods.

This may be a record. Five zots on one thread of a mere 100 posts. Amazing.

Um... ZOT X 5
