Gingrich Campaign to Air 30 Minute Speech on Lowering Energy Prices In Advance of Super Tuesday
newt.org ^ | February 22, 2012 | Newt Gingrich

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 Romney’s 30 second attack ads filled with garbage is a 30 minute address filled with substance,” says Gingrich Communications Director Joe DeSantis. “Newt’s 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 America’s 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.”

Super Tuesday??

I heard about that. ...that was when I was suppose to vote.

Will Texas' liberal judges keep Texas from influencing the Republican Primary over redistricting lawsuits.

Who was that guy that use to run half-hour and hour-long commercials during his presidential campaigns?

Oh yes, Lyndon LaRouche.

If he doesn’t do well super Tuesday, he probably wouldn’t need the money anyhow? If he does well, it should bring in more donations?

I’m guessing that is their logic.

Since they are afraid to debate Newt after tonight, he said he would still get his message out there, guess this is the way and it’s a great idea.

Excellent!

Our local radio station is airing ads from Winning Our Future so Newt has a bit of a presence in CA already.

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.

from wiki

He campaigned in 16 states and spent an estimated $12.3 million of his own money.[29] 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.

Holy WOW

So easy to follow, so exciting. Seems like 5 minutes.

This plan is divinely inspired. People WILL listen.

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).

“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:

Bachmann
Cain
Perry
Gingrich (twice)
Romney

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.

NO ROMNEY.

Nah, the people who vote in primaries are a different breed. Plus, he will generate some bonus publicity if he does his placement properly. He is building on his strengths: Newt is a man who can develop a comprehensive plan and present it in an understandable manner on thorny topics.

My personal testimony is that when Newt Gingrich and his fellow Conservatives corrected a massively out-of-control government in the mid-90's, gasoline shortly thereafter slid to 77 cents a gallon here in Texas. He did it before and, as President, I have confidence that Gingrich will do it again.

Drill baby drill! Frack baby frack! Go Newt go!

I remember well all of Newts achievements. HE did it once and is the only candidate that can lead us to properity once more, he knows how to twist arms and get them to see his VISION, that is if they know whats good for them.

He is a VISIONARY with great IDEAS and expectations for Americans.

Newt makes me nervous when he says he can “guarantee” gas at a particular price, or a reduction by a particular date. Made me nervous when Sarah Palin talked that way as well. Markets just don’t work that way. Yes, more supply will over the long run rein in prices, but I would not want to have to guarantee $2.50 by such and such a date.

Also, the American public sadly will not sit thru a 30 minute speech at this point. Needs to make his point in short, choppy sound bites.

If you love good Newt speeches, watch this one on the Tube. It’s called “Gingrich to Michigan: Change or Die” from 2010 but the message applies to the entire nation. Haven’t watched the new one yet but this one is my favorite Newt speech so far:
