Gingrich: Obama Is 'Dangerous,' Defeating Him 'a Duty of National Security'
ABC OTUS News ^ | Feb. 20, 2012 | Elicia Dover

Posted on 02/20/2012 7:07:25 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

TULSA, Okla. - While discussing the threat of Iran today to a crowd of about 4,000 people at Oral Roberts University, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said that defeating Barack Obama was "in fact, a duty of national security."

"Because the fact is, he is incapable of defending the United States," Gingrich said.

Gingrich told the crowd, many of them young students, there was a real threat of an American city being wiped out. Gingrich said the Obama administration refuses to acknowledge radical Islamists.

"All of you should be very deeply concerned about national security. Barack Obama is the most dangerous president in modern American history," Gingrich said.

Speak the truth Newt...somebody has to stop kissing Omorons butt. The media is so far up it they do his colonoscopy’s for him.

I was there. It was fantastic. Suprised that they would state the real numbers. Newt had a full 1 min. or more, of a standing `O’ when he came on stage and many more throughout the speach. He really reached out to the young folk there and was greatly recieved. Exciting to say the least.......

And Gingrich CAN do it.

Went to the OKC Newt rally this evening. Much the same speech as ORU, but never tire of hearing him. Loved seeing so many young people there.

Shook his hand and told him the FREEPERS send their love and support, and we are praying for him. He sincerely appreciated that. So thank you Freepers from NEWT.

The arena was much smaller, so I would say only about 300 attended, but all were very enthuestistic and excited, a few standing ovations, but lots of clapping.

He is now off the AZ. for the debate.

""Any honest person knows what motivated the person who came here," Gingrich said. "This is not smearing everybody, this is not Islamaphobia.
If we can't have honest conversation about radical Islamists and we can't figure out - there is a very specific group of people across the planet - there's a very specific desire to kill us.""
Imagine the chill a Gingrich/West cabinet would send down the spineless backs of these vermin.
We must send the “O” home, where ever that is.
And Gingrich CAN do it.

Lord, guide Newt Gingrich.

And the whole church said: So Be It, So Be It, And Amen!

Such a bummer seeing Santorum on Hannity tonight.
No way can that man become the leader of the free world.

He was so great in OK today.

Hannity re-airs in 5 minutes.

Although, I’m an ardent Newt supporter, I think it’s worth hearing and seeing Rick on the issues regardless of the campaign. He brings forth many salient points with a tremendous amount of insight. I laud the virtues of his rhetoric.

Go Newt 2012 !!!

Dave, I read some place today that the auditorium holds 11,000 people. It sure looked to me like more than 4,000.

Just listened to the Oral Roberts townhall ...brilliant as always — his answer to the question of why we consider Iran as an agressor was doubly awesome.

I think Newt is gearing up big time for the upcoming debates.

I felt the very same. Can't get excited about Santorum. He reminds me of a pastor who is angry at tmes. He will not be getting my vote- I am done with Bushie big government spender as he. I will do a write-in.

Barack Obama is the most dangerous president in modern American history

We used to use words like "greatest", "effective", "glamorous", "charismatic", and "far-sighted" in a sentence like this.

Now we use the word "dangerous" to describe the President. How far, how far, this country has fallen. These are perilous times, indeed...

Can't wait till the debate. Thought: Santorum needs a teleprompter. He babbles and is not concise in his responses. Expect more mistakes to keep him off topic in the near future. He's getting tired and the stress is showing.

Santorum was a smiley, babbling mess on Hannity tonight. Even Hannity couldn't make him focus, much as he tried.

Again thanking you so much for posting these videos of Newt as he speaks throughout the country...I appreciate your effort to keep us informed.

This speech at ORC was just grand... Again noticing the ease in which Newt speaks ..without notes...and with conviction and belief in what he is saying..... He's not dancing circles around people telling them what they want to hear....he's telling them what they need to hear concerning our country, this election and his specific plans in what he will do...and how.

Worth a listen for all.....especially those who have yet to determine who they want to vote for. And for those of us who are supporting newt.

Am so glad people are seeing Santorum does not have a firm grasp on his talking points...let alone specific plans for what he intends to do for this country in the peril it is in.

He is not going to do well with Obama at all. He doesn't have the conviction of what he is saying with the exception of his social issues, but even then he has difficulty defending these when under pressure.

I think he struggles and babbles so because he does have a temper and he has to keep that constrained. He wasn't called a bully here in PA for nothing...and i don't mean that in a favorable light as one might think of someone willing to fight....rather he could not handle criticism and still can't.

Newt got alot of flack after the FL debates....(He had been attack by twenty million in negative ads.)
People said he looked tired not fresh....Think Santorum already looked that way tonight and the blitz has NOT hit him full force yet.

Having negative things repeated again and again does make a person stressful.

The difference I see between the two: Newt took a step back, turned what he could over to his legal team, Reorganized and will be back in the game full force.

Don't think Santorum has that intestinal fortitude to do the same.

His temperment won't allow him to IMO. We saw that in Pa. and the things he's saying now and his reactions have not changed much...the more pressure the more chance he'll either loose it or start his bullying. And he'll certainly be babbling as he does that.

Look, there are things I like about Santorum...but his delivery and how he formulates what he wants to say are far from being what he'll need to get congress to act....but Obama will undoubtedly cut Santorums knees out from under him if they debate. It's not hard understand Obama will be watching how Santorum operates and will go for the jugular that would make him crack.

I see it as an intelligence issue. Maybe type of intelligence

I'd say Santorum is around 120. He doesn't see the large picture and can't formulate an entire page at one time. Goes sentence, by sentence....paragraph by paragraph. Hoping to bluff his way through.

In contrast Newt has to be well above 140. He not only sees the page but the entire book. He is able to edit it, making the points he want to make fit into the time he is allowed to present the material at an intellectual level his audience understands.

I think that his position is unsustainable:

One just cannot ask for freedom of faith and its practice, which is completely legit, and trying to impose his own morals on others, which is NOT.
I don’t know how much time has Santorum spent on foreign policy, jobs and economy, or energy policy, but personally I’m sick and tired of hearing him carping about other people’s sexuality, private life and personal choices. All that is not the bloody business of the government, my neighbor, a candidate or the president.

Newt has already decided what to do, and sticks to it:

1) Repeal Obamacare bill entirely (no ifs, buts or waivers) on THE FIRST DAY in office (all NDH orders issued from it becoming obsolete, including the one concerning contraception in religious institutions and hospitals)

2) Annul all Obama’s executive orders, which contain any trace of anti-religious bigotry.

PERIOD.

We don’t have to spend hours upon hours upon hours talking about minutia.

What I find very offputting is that Santorum has taken to using almost all of Newt’s solutions and putting them out there as his own - and I don’t think there is anything that can be done about that... without sounding petty or confrontational. but it is getting worse as he gets more air time. I really wonder how this coincides with his principled character. I have to believe, I have faith, who he is will eventually be seen with its despotic and judgmental elements... I am beginning to see this election, in one sense, as the pharisee vs. the sinner redeemed by grace and used by God mightily... Pray for Newt.

Newt is relying on supporters and grassroots to do a lot of the footwork for him...

You can download & print these handouts to give out in your community at local GOP, Tea Party, & 912 meetings, or at community events like fairs and parades.

He is able to edit it, making the points he wants to make fit into the time he is allowed to present the material at an intellectual level his audience understands.

Exactly!...and the audiance does understand...which is important. When I invision Newt speaking to the International Leaderships I have no concerns at all..he will be understood. Santorum ..I cannot even imagine the confusion he would create...it's important to be precise and Santorum doesn't have it.
