Newt speaks at the California Republican Convention (Livestream at 3:10 EST, i.e., right now)
California Republican Party ^ | 2/25/12 | Newt Gingrich

Posted on 02/25/2012 12:16:14 PM PST by BCrago66

Livestream to the California GOP Convention. Newt is scheduled to speak right now; as I right this, stream is running, and people are milling about before the speech.

(Some twit seems to be harassing the camera operator with dumb questions.)

I got a call here in AL today, First from Newt. Received my first piece of Romney trash in the mail yesterday and that is straight where it went.

Give that this is the “official” videographer at the California GOP convention, you’d think they could at least have placed him closer to the stage & in the center...instead of this distant side view...with the audio cutting out periodically.

“They” is not a professional operation. It’s a dood with a smartphone and a Ustream account. But I expect later tonight a better view of the speech will turn up on thrightscoop.com and other sites.

One could hope - but I don't see any cameras. It DOES require cameras!

Infuriating. Makes 'em look like a bunch of amateurs.

Technical difficulties?? Yeah, just a few — in addition to not having enough band width, the only microphone is in the hands of the announcer so you get all the applause, including his clapping, but to hear the speaker, the audio is coming off the room’s speakers and he (the man with the microphone) is not close to one. The CA GOP isn’t ready for prime time, no way, no how.

There is apparently another set up somewhere else in the room, presumably with direct audio from the podium mic... you can see it’s video feed on the screen on the left of the stage.

Newt’s going to run an “American” campaign.
(First thought vs. Kenyan Marxist campaign?)

No, says his campaign includes CA and won’t write it off.

then he/she is an amateur - I'm in 'the business' - you just go up in front of the front row - and FILM - good grief, even set up in the middle aisle - and zoom in so's you can see the FACE ......and then, at least, post it on his FB and on YouTube - but no one's gonna watch this but already hardcore supporters...when y ou can't see the face - can hardly hear the words, you tune out

Why can’t America see what we at FreeRepublic see? I think we should demand that FoxNews give equal coverage to Newt.

Not only does he have a cheerful face but he just makes sense. He’s such a smart man and it is very obvious.

Bill O’Rielly has been complaining all week that the candidates are swimming in minutia instead of dealing with substance like energy.

Please forward any/all of Newt’s links that “deal with energy” to Orielly@foxnews.com

I’m continuing my campaign until O’Rielly gives Newt credit where credit is due.

Horrible streaming experience at cagop.org and it crashed as Newt appeared to be wrapping up. Since they never reported even 450 viewers, it shows just how ill prepared the operation is for the event.

Reporters are there, and that’s what counts. Some of those reporters will ask Obama or members of his administration for responses to the specific factual accusations made by Newt, and even non-response responses will make news, thereby providing a ton of free media, raising Newt’s profile with primary voters.

So Newt achieved his purpose.

In a couple hours, the entire speech will appear on the net, with no audio or video problems.

thanks all for the CNN link -

great speech - that’s called REAL Hope & Change”

I am so glad he finally linked the price of gas to the cost of food and everything else - Like my son, long hauler says, “If you bought it, a truck brought it.”

Love the $2.50 logos! This may be the spark that set the campaign on fire - getting the attention of the Sheeple. It has certainly got the attention of abama - scares him to death. Newt has bypassed mittens and sanctimonious and made this a campaign between Newt and Obama - BRILLIANT.

when it comes to the bottom line, people will vote their pocket books - he’s already taken in 750,000 $2.50 donations!

go to newt.org and donate $2.50!
