Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich: President Obama 'needs to move to Europe'

FEDERAL WAY -- Ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich, seeking his third comeback in the Republican presidential race, told a Friday rally that Barack Obama is "president of the wrong country" and ought to "move to Europe."
Gingrich dispensed red meat rhetoric with a smile. He is again the happy warrior seen in a CNN Republican debate earlier this week, and not the angry candidate who won in South Carolina but then lost big in Florida.
"Our only opponent is Barack Obama," Calista Gingrich said in introducing her husband. As for Newt Gingrich, he mentioned the GOP field only once with a dig at a free-spending, well-heeled rival: "Mitt Romney raises a lot more money from Wall Street than I do, but we have 170,000 donors."
The former House Speaker is holding four rallies in Washington, anticipating the state's Saturday, March 3, precinct caucuses
The themes of his speech here could be summed up in three words: gas guzzlers and God.
Gingrich is touting a drill-baby-drill energy policy, saying he wants to be known as "President Drilling." He lampooned the fuel-efficient Chevy Volt, and the prospect of generating energy from algae -- calling Obama "President Algae" and "President Food Stamps" -- and claimed that the 44th president is seeking "total power" to shape Americans' consumption habits.
"The President would like to force all of us into small vehicles," Gingrich alleged. "The President would like to force all of to do what he wants. He's president of the wrong country. ... He needs to move to Europe."
It was about as blunt as any Republican candidate has espoused the Barack Obama-is-different line of argument. Gingrich followed up with another hit at the President, saying: "Obama's vision is one of total power in the White House."

That’s great but Newt, buddy. Use that Adelson money to get face-to-face on TV WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. TALK to them. Dont let the MSM be a filter. Buy time for a SERIES of fireside chats and level with the AMERICAN PEOPLE. TALK WITH THEM DIRECTLY A WHOLE BUNCH between now and super Tuesday. This may be our last shot.
Newt can’t use that money. He has no control over how that money is spent. It’s separate from his campaign.
Ping. I think I beat you by only a few seconds in posting this article. ;^)
Looks like— they took mine down- which is ok— except I know I said something very insightful in my post that can never be re-created. -:)
So now the Jacka$$ Newtie is the “Happy Warrior” again? He was sure happy when he kept giving wins to Monica Lewinsky’s ex-boyfriend in the mid-90’s, and was REALLY happy when posing with Nancy “Wicked Witch of the West” Pelosi.
Why? Who made up those unconstitutional rules. SCOTUS has ruled that contributing money is a form of free speech and restricting it restricts 1st Amendment freedom of speech ESPECIALLY in the political arena, the main reason for the enumerated right to begin with.
Where does it go - the "PAC"? What the heck is that and who's on that thing?
Bump for exposing $7 gas
I saw your post! I was posting a reply and a message came up saying the thread had been yanked!
You did??? I’m so upset. I KNOW that was an absolutely brilliant comment- and it’s wiped out for eternity. I’m not like Newt- any brilliance I have comes once every 4 or 5 years- and only when I’m lucky. -:)
I'm Mitt Romney and I approve of this post.
Newt calls Obama “President Algae”
Here are some “chats”:
Øbama gets NEWT-ered!
I think it was Sen. John McCain and Sen. “All Water Belongs to the Government” Finegold.
Newt has a plan to get it fixed and I believe that Newt thinks that we should be able to own water.
So the Seattle Post-Intelligencer is so entralled they forgot how to count?
