Skip to comments.Gingrich Campaign to Air 30 Minute Speech on Lowering Energy Prices In Advance of Super Tuesday
Posted on 02/22/2012 7:40:04 AM PST by Marguerite
Newt 2012 announced that it will be purchasing 30 minute blocks of time in key cities between now and Super Tuesday to air a twenty-eight minute address by Newt Gingrich on the subject of lowering gasoline prices, creating jobs and achieving energy independence.
The answer to Governor Romneys 30 second attack ads filled with garbage is a 30 minute address filled with substance, says Gingrich Communications Director Joe DeSantis. Newts message about lowering gasoline and other energy prices is resonating and the Obama administration is on defense over their policies hostile to American energy production, which are causing pain at the pump.
The 28 minute speech, which Gingrich delivered without a teleprompter or text, is called $2.50 per Gallon Gasoline, Energy Independence and Jobs An Address by Newt Gingrich.
In the address, Gingrich outlines the facts behind Americas energy production potential and points out why becoming an energy production powerhouse would benefit Americans in almost every aspect of their lives:
Every time you can lower the cost of energy, you make it easier for us to have manufacturing and you lower the cost of living
We have a lot more jobs, and we need a growing economy with a lot of new jobs, because we want to be a country where America works best when Americans are working
We are not a country of food stamps and welfare. We are a country of the work ethic, of a job, of take‑home pay, of opening up our own business. And this kind of energy program will do just that.
Go Newt! Sarah Palin interviewed with Hannity last night and said the candidates need to focus on energy.
Can Santorum continue his surge?

I don’t know. How well watched were the Perot 30 minute politi-mercials? Good for the people who care and want to hear details . . . maybe not so for the ones who enjoy hearing Obama sing for his fans.
Thanks for the link.
Santorum is like that tape which “will self-destruct in five seconds”.
All what one has to do, is let him keep talking...
I hope it works.
He campaigned in 16 states and spent an estimated $12.3 million of his own money. Perot employed the innovative strategy of purchasing half-hour blocks of time on major networks for infomercial-type campaign advertisements; this advertising garnered more viewership than many sitcoms, with one Friday night program in October attracting 10.5 million viewers
I think he was doing pretty well until the VP debates with his VP candidate . . . wasn’t he the one with the “why am I here” type reply?
“Who was that guy that use to run half-hour and hour-long commercials during his presidential campaigns?
Oh yes, Lyndon LaRouche.”
Also Ronald Reagan. A 1976 campaign ad on NBC at 10:30 PM EST saved his bacon in North Carolina and beyond.
For the record, I’m a Santorum supporter, but I would like to see what Newt has for us. A great move in my opinion.
So easy to follow, so exciting. Seems like 5 minutes.
This plan is divinely inspired. People WILL listen.
“We are Americans and Americans do what needs to be done.”
~ Newt Gingrich
Too bad he couldn’t have scheduled it for before tonight’s debate. Questioners might have had to focus on something other than what they consider to be religious issues.
maybe the CNN moderators will watch it before the debate and ask a question or two about it and generate some interest and ratings for the upcoming 30 minute politi-merial(s).
“Too bad he couldnt have scheduled it for before tonights debate.”
They hadn’t the means to buy so much time last week.
“Santorum is like that tape which ‘will self-destruct in five seconds’.
All what one has to do, is let him keep talking.”
That is exactly what he isn’t, at least compared to this field:
These folks all created or dug deeper holes for themselves.
I will take the occasional gaffe over someone who is over-engineered by handlers.
In Santorum’s case, he may as well be himself. He wrote a 400 page book that tackles social issues in a way that media finds unacceptable. Yesterday’s dust-up was over a four year old speech addressed at a seriously Catholic University.
He could give a one hour talk on unemployment and financial issues, but if he throws in one phrase on underlying social problems that exacerbate all of it, the MSM will jump on it and take it out of context.
They did this to some of the others, too, including Newt.
We must not cooperate with the MSM in their takedowns.
They want Romney.
The ones who want to hear Barry sing won’t be voting republican anyway.
Looks like NEWT is the only one that has MANAGEMENT skills and is a VISIONARY. rofl.
Newt gonna make more promises to eliminate programs that he himself created? Great!
Drill baby drill! Frack baby frack! Go Newt go!
Thank you for passing that along. A very protein-rich 28 minutes!
Santorum and Romney put together could not fill a half hour with practical solutions to America’s problems.
Newt has plans, not platitudes.
This one’s substance-rich and filled with detail. Very good!
He is a VISIONARY with great IDEAS and expectations for Americans.
Yes - very succinct without being simplistic.
