Watch Newt Gingrich Lincoln Day Dinner Speech

I did, and believe me, if a good speech is all that did it for me, I'd be all on board, just like all the Obama lemmings that love the way he orates.

My problems with Newt are fundamental.
- He talks conservative to conservatives, yet repeatedly fashions himself a Progressive to the "intellectual" audience.
- He plays dirty, just like his recent attacks on Freddie/Fannie when he also had stock in them.
- He constantly gives speeches and interviews praising the power grabs of Wilson and FDR and thinks himself in their image. (He even made a Wilson joke IN THIS SPEECH about Mondale!)
- He believes in federal insurance mandates and wants his own version of the EPA (which apparently isn't far off from Pelosi's vision).
- He talks executive order, executive order, executive order. Is this the precedent we want moving forward, especially next time a D takes office?
Yada, yada.

Granted, Newt is no Obama, but then again, he probably doesn't contrast enough on the key issues to beat him. He could ignite passion with conservatives with West as VP just like Palin did for McCain, but the VP is really a neutered role which is why voting McLame still turned my stomach.

Newt also thinks he'll beat Obama on debates, but Obama won't bother. He'll get one chance, Obama will lie through it all, and the media won't follow up. And then what?

In the long run, if Newt did win, he could be worse than Obama for the country. Sure, he'll pull a few of the acts he's promised and help us all for a few years, but once he pulls his first, second, etc. Progressive act, the left will have check mate - "your guy did it, so the right is a bunch of hypocrites; they're just out for the 1%; etc...". They'll use that for every election forward, and in the long run, it's epic fail.

Imo, there are only 2 conservatives left. I'm not completely sold on either, but Paul's nativity on defense makes him ineligible for military commander-in-chief (Treasury Secretary, sure).

(Not to mention, I have a VERY negative view of what Lincoln did to the republic, so those references don't help.)

Hat Tip to glock rocks

Retread troll casts the first stone at Gingrich and ends up a pile of guts and ashes under the deadly gaze of The Man Himself





Retreading is a shoot-on-sight offense

In the case of wedding vows - I didn’t make Gingrich miserable in his personal life.

That is why I can still trust him.

You are mixing apples and oranges.

I suggest you don’t marry Gingrich and make him miserable - since that is the only thing you have to bitch about him.

Retread hunting is quite a challenge compared to the outing of flagrant trolls.

However, comma, the ozone is just as sweet.

Useless,

Rick Santorum is home with his wife at the bedside of his child. Even Sarah Palin has extended an act of kindness to him in this very tender moment. I consider you to be a worthless low life to try and politicize his absence from Florida to be with a very sick child.

We have not met Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney so all that I know of them is their past record. We have met Senator Santorum, and he is truly a godly man and worthy of much more respect for his unimpeachable character and integrity than he is getting. I for one would welcome a godly leader in the White House of a nation that is supposed to be “under God”, but I am not that confident in the track records of the other candidates where integrity is concerned.

I’m not throwing my support to Romney, but I’m not settling for a lying, cheating, whoremonger

Cleared that up for us, so ZOT upon thee.
