CBS's Rose to Gingrich: Are You 'Questioning the Patriotism' of Obama?
Media Research Center ^ | 2/21/2012 | Matthew Balan

Posted on 02/21/2012 6:43:27 PM PST by katiedidit1

GINGRICH: The President of the United States is patriotic in a worldview that involves the writing of Saul Alinsky, and involves a radical reinterpretation. Clearly, his czars were unconstitutional; clearly, his recess appointments, when there was no recess, is unconstitutional; clearly, the use of the U.S. attorney in North Dakota to selectively prosecute oil companies over eight migratory birds is unconstitutional. Again and again, this is a president who routinely only obeys those laws he personally deems fit. I think that his attack on the Catholic Church is unconstitutional. It's a violation of the First Amendment. Now, I think that's an important debate for us to have as a country.

Obama is 100% loyal to his country. Unfortunately, we do not know which country that is.

look at this Jim "And I would just suggest to you this is an administration that no country really trusts. It's the reason the Saudis are now signing a nuclear treaty with the Chinese, not with the Americans. It's the reason the Canadians are looking to build a pipeline with the Chinese, not through the United States. I mean, the President vetoes the Keystone pipeline. He is slowing down the flow of energy in the United States, and driving Canada into a partnership with China-

GINGRICH: Well, I don't know. I think the biggest thing that separates us is the degree to which I'm prepared to make a very, very large change, whether it's a national energy policy designed to drive the price of gasoline down below $2.50 a gallon, and to make sure that no future president bows to a Saudi king, or there's a personal Social Security savings account for young people, so they can have a buildup of money they control, that they're in charge of, that no politician can touch; or it's going to zero capital gains [tax] and 100% expensing for all new equipment, so you really have a dramatic rebirth of the American economy. There are a number of areas where I think I'm probably much bolder than Senator Santorum, but in a sense, we both represent a much more conservative wing of the [Republican] Party than does Governor Romney, who represents a kind of northeastern moderatism.

An entire election campaign platform in a single paragraph. Including a bitch-slap to little bammy.

Typical Newt precision.

Newt stated the facts on the gas hikes in America and why...bet Rose wished he had on a pair of Depends:)

ROSE: That brings us to President Obama. You believe that he wants to see more expensive gas, you have said? [CBS News Graphic: "Politics Of Gas Prices: Gingrich On His $2 Per Gallon Claim"] GINGRICH: Of course, he does. Come on, Charlie. You know that. I mean, he has said it himself. [Steven] Chu, his Secretary of Energy, said he wanted- in 2008, said he wanted gasoline prices in America to get to the European level, which is nine or $10 a gallon. Last year, the President said people ought to buy- they shouldn't complain about higher gas prices. They ought to buy more efficient cars. The President himself said he wants to get there. He just wants it to be gradual. His policy has been outrageously anti-American energy. The high price of gasoline is a direct result of Obama. We paid $1.13 a gallon when I was Speaker. We paid a $1.89 a gallon when he became President. His policies are anti-American energy. They exist in a fantasy world, where we're all going to end up buying an electric car, for which his new budget puts in a $10,000 subsidy per car. You think about what you can do for average working Americans if you want to hand them a $10,000 check. The average person who buys a [Chevy] Volt has a $170,000 annual income. So President Obama, in effect, is giving income redistribution to the wealthy, and in pursuit of his own fantasy, which is an electric car ,which is going to liberate us from Saudi Arabia. I want to have American drilling- oil, natural gas, use of coal, nuclear power, solar, biological, wind. I want American energy, which is practical and available now, to liberate us from Saudi Arabia-

Newt should stop using liberal language by calling the Volt an “electric” car. It is a battery powered car. Your gasoline powered auto generates its own, actual electricity through the alternator as the engine runs. Electricity, generated by your car is critical to its operation. The volt powers electric motors by a battery pack.

I suggest this line for Newt to use against Santorum.

“Frankly, I’m a little disappointed in him. I taught him to think bigger and be bolder than this.”

Time to put the junior partner and Skipper Newt’s “little buddy” in his place.

What about Santorum getting in a wrestling ring to praise Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer? Well, I guess nobody’s perfect:

http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2848555/posts?q=1&;page=51

Newt explained all about his views on global warming in this recent radio interview with Dana Loesch:

http://www.breitbart.tv/newt-hammers-wapo-in-dana-loesch-interview/

This is from Newt’s site regarding global warming and the couch ad:

http://www.newt.org/answers#GlobalWarming

Global Warming/Cap and Trade

Newt does not believe there is a settled scientific conclusion about whether industrial development has dramatically contributed to a warming of the atmosphere.

Newt absolutely opposes “cap and trade” as well as any system of taxing carbon emissions. He testified before Congress against it in 2009 and led a grassroots effort while the Chairman of American Solutions to block its passage in the House and Senate.

Newt believes that cap and trade would kill hundreds of thousands of American jobs, cause electricity and fuel prices to skyrocket, and make America poorer. In contrast, Gingrich believes the best way to protect the environment is through markets, incentives, and entrepreneurs, who quite often are deploying innovative new technologies.

As for the question of whether industrial development has dramatically contributed to a warming of the atmosphere, Newt has noted there is no settled scientific conclusion. Many scientists believe it is the case. Others do not. But this unsettled scientific question has nothing to do with the best approach to protecting our environment, which is always markets, incentives, and entrepreneurs creating better and more efficient products and services.

Q: So why did Newt do the ad with Nancy Pelosi in 2007 calling for action to address climate change?

Newt does not believe there is a settled scientific conclusion about whether industrial development has dramatically contributed to a warming of the atmosphere.

Through his entire career, Newt has supported pro-market, pro-entrepreneur, innovative solutions to our environmental challenges, which he believes are superior to the liberal pro-bureaucracy, pro-tax, pro-regulation approach to the environment.

Newt believes that conservatives cannot be absent from the conversation about the environment and instead that conservatives must offer and explain why conservative solutions are better. Unfortunately, the attempt to get that message out through the ad with Nancy Pelosi failed. On November 8, 2011, Newt told FOX News’ Bret Baier that doing that commercial with Pelosi was “probably the dumbest single thing I’ve ever done”.

Newt will continue to oppose the Democrats’ destructive cap-and-trade and carbon tax proposals, continue to support expanded domestic oil and gas drilling, and continue to fight for a fundamental replacement of the job-killing Environmental Protection Agency with an Environmental Solutions Agency.

Thanks for the link, Tiger! I'd be happier if Newt just stated flat-out that the whole damned thing is "snake oil science," as Palin puts it (and she's right), but I'm satisfied with what Newt has figured out: clearly Gingrich is poised to halt the steamroller of environmentalist regulation. Thanks for a link to retire the old lie about Newt, who in fact has also argued eloquently against cap and trade (I saw that link somewhere on FR, too).

Godspeed Newt!

Newt is right on Soc Sec and the Galveston plan. Santorum is wrong. Why shouldn't younger workers have the right to invest a portion of THEIR OWN MONEY into an alternate stock or bond rather than have the "untrustworthy" govt have control?

What has the govt controlled that has been sucessful? besides their own pensions?
