Posted on 03/03/2012 3:45:53 AM PST by Marguerite
While the best and brightest conservative leaders in America support and endorse Newt Gingrich for his leadership and historic accomplishments as Speaker of the House, including balancing the federal budget for the first time in decades, it is Newt's astounding debate skill that most astonishes everyone. With the power of the media behind him, it is only on the debate stage where Barack Obama can be defeated.
This video, under 5 minutes, gives you a taste of those near-future historic and amazing moments yet to come if we but nominate as the GOP candidate the one man who can beat Obama where the battle will be fought; on the debate stage before the world.

Newt Gingrich Highlights from CNN Debate in Arizona
The federal budget hasn't been balanced since the Eisenhower administration.
Oh! Sweet Mar-mar, you don’t have to do that!
You’re entitled to your opinion,
and I’m entitled to mine.
It started out okay but then, and someone is going to have to explain this to me, it started playing backwards at about the mid point. Right after I adjusted the sound.
It was my pleasure :)
“my computer wont play sound.’
Better get that fixed!
“When Gingrich left office in 1999, the Congress he engineered had a 60% approval rating and it was the only time (besides directly after 9/11) Congress has EVER broken 50%.
And that would give Gingrich the firm edge without considering these accomplishments by Gingrich:
Engineered Conservative Opportunity Society with Paul Weyrich that coordinated a strategic conservative attack on the liberal congress for the first time in the modern era.
Personally took down Jim Wright of Texas as the Democrat Speaker of the House risking his entire political career.
Despite reservations by the ENTIRE GOP party, Gingrich set in motion a plan to create a permanent conservative movement.
Took over GOPAC and created a conservative training system parts of which are still in use today.
Delivered more money than any congressional leader before him.
Engineered Contract With America and took control of House for first time in 40 years on the par of the historic Benjamin Disraeli.
Passed extensive conservative legislation while GROWING Congressional approval for the GOP.
Presided over the greatest influx of Republican voters in history during his leadership as Congressman, Minority Whip and Speaker. Note: Gingrich markedly IMPROVED the GOP favorability even over Reagans historic levels.
One of the most notable examples of how effective his leadership was is observing Congress after he left. It reverted back to the RINO policies of old, unwilling to stand up to George Bush 43, and running up trillions in debt.”
Only Newt or Santorum have the guts to take on Obama and grab the bull by the horns.
Romney is McCain lite.
What I wouldn’t give to see that actually happen!
“What I wouldnt give to see that actually happen!”
Just nominate Newt as Republican candidate and we all see it! :)
Neither Mitt or Rick can win over Obama. ONLY NEWT can. Read the article at the link, how Obama lost the first debate:
Watch the video: Newt Responds To Obama’s Energy Speech
It was interesting that Romney used the word resolute to describe himself in the last Arizona debate, since the hundreds of clearly documented flip flops show is ACTIONS to be anything other than politically expedient. In fact, he clearly lied about not ordering Catholic hospitals to dispense the morning after pill. So if by resolute you men firmly committed to say whatever it politically expedient then sure. Since Michael Jacksons BAD is good and wicked is somehow supposed to be excellent, perhaps he is just a victim of cultural confusion. We already see how our allies have disengaged America because of the same proclivity of our President and I think many of us have a right to be concerned about his trouble in telling the truth. My take: Romney would have be as strong and directional as the current political wind as he was in Massachusetts. I see him EXACTLY like John Boehner was during the debt ceiling debate where he would talk tough then immediately capitulate to the old Establishment without having the resolve as Jim DeMint and Michele Bachmann did to hold the line. These kinds of people score quick political victories but have no true core or sense of purpose to keep guiding people toward the right goal since their goal is only to follow the people not lead them.
he would be stronger on conservative values than Romney, but without any remote ability to communicate his ideas and gather support around them. The fact he cant even get more than 3 congressman to endorse him EVEN NOW THAT HE IS THE FRONTRUNNER is a terrible warning sign of acknowledged leadership problems. My take: Ive hired my share of employees in business over the past 20 years including some who started major corporations and ran them. You get a sixth sense about capability after getting burned a few times that differentiates doers from talkers from BSers to safety first politicians. There is ALWAYS negatives in everyones past. If you dont make mistakes you never learned how to handle to risk. If you never learn how to handle risk you either are foolishly risky or to protective and get nothing meaningful accomplished. Santorum is one of those guys Ive hired that is a bomb that will absolutely explode in your face at the wrong time. Could you get lucky? Yes. But the dire state of the world, the nation and a blank slate generation will either have something to aspire to, or fall further into cynicism or socialism if they dont see conservatism and capitalism work.
I like that Newt Gingrich doesnt promise he wont make mistakes. That is a huge sign of maturity. I like the fact that he isnt afraid to talk about going to moon to try and recapture the imagination MY GENERATION grew up with that turned disinterested troublemakers into engineers and responsible adults. Hes actually DONE everything we need to be done economically, in government reform, in inspiring others to our cause and even in slowly moving those who dont want to toward the RIGHT goal. Moreover, hes been planning this since he was 15 years old. And teaching it to people like Rick Santorum whose first instruction in politics came from Newt Gingrich. It is interesting to go back to those who knew him during and after his position as Speaker of the House. The GOPAC founder, the Moral Majority founder, even some who support Romney out of convenience (or bribes we dont know) all agreed that the Presidency was the correct place for him all along. The slam of the Democrats when he was in power was not just that he was acting like the President he was being more effective than theirs! Imagine what would happen if he actually had the job.
...it is Newt’s astounding debate skill that most astonishes everyone.
Yes, and I’m a Newt supporter, but, what the hell happened to him in the Debate before the Florida Primary? If he’d pulled that Debate off, he’d probably already be the designated nominee now. But, he was pathetic and got his butt handed to him in the Florida Primary. Now, we’re in a mell of a hess.
I don’t mean to disagree with you, but it wasn’t the debates. It was the 17-million dollars of negative, lying advertising, the 160,000 willard ads to Newt’s 20,000, and only half of Newt’s ads referenced Romney, the others were positive and promising. The final two weeks before the primary, there were 8-10 ugly romney ads lying on Newt playing every hour, tv and radio. In the run-up, he debate was barely a vague recollection.
Newt did average in the debates, lackluster, no big mistakes. But Newt could have been Churchill, Reagan and Mark Levin in that debate, and nobody could have remembered it in the midst of all the thigh-high mud. That’s not even mentioning what the GOP did to him in Florida or Bloody Thursday, or the local media.
I live in florida, you almost couldn’t breathe here the air was so thick with mud and bile... I will never forget it as long as I live. Guess what? NEWT SURVIVED. That’s the story of the Florida primary - NEWT SURVIVED.
Commander in Chief and Crisis Management
He oversaw the Massachusetts national guard which is probably about as extensive as the first mob uprising at Faneuil Hall. He has interacted with post 9/11 security concerns with the Winter Olympics and knows how to manage and make decisions.
Rick Santorum has met 3 Commander in Chiefs. Having oversight of Foreign policy isnt the same as leading or managing troops let alone creating architecture of battle or even armed services preparation. The good news is that if the military didnt turn on Barack Obama, its a good chance Santorum would make it through his presidency alive.
The longest lecturing professor at the War College including a 30+ year span of training Admirals and Generals. A student of military history and strategy since being drug around the world with his army father and family as a little boy. He reads military strategy FOR FUN and is friends with people like Benjamin Netanyahu and other world leaders.
Comparison of Santorum v. Gingrich’s Tea Party Statements:
Right now, I am trying to get a sense of this, to maybe do a little flyer about it, because it is very very impressive and I think would make voters feel very secure with the thought of a Newt Presidency during such turbulent times. It is such an embarrassment of riches with Newt, it's hard to choose which Newt elements have the most wallop, but I truly believe this is important and impressive. I mean, how many people have that on their resume?
Newt slams Obama on gas prices, national security
“I mean, how many people have that on their resume?”
To my knowledge , none of the candidates except Newt.

For over two decades, Gingrich has taught at the United States Air Force’s Air University, where he is the longest-serving teacher of the Joint Flag Officer Warfighting Course.
In addition, he is an honorary Distinguished Visiting Scholar and Professor at the National Defense University and teaches officers from all of the defense services.
Gingrich informally advised Defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld on strategic issues, on issues including the IsraeliPalestinian conflict and encouraging the Pentagon to not “yield” foreign policy influence to the State Department and National Security Council.
Gingrich is also a guiding coalition member of the Project on National Security Reform.
Gingrich is also a fellow at conservative think tanks the American Enterprise Institute and Hoover Institution, focusing on U.S. politics, world history, national security policy, and environmental policy issues.
Why didn’t the department of labor release the February, 2012 federal jobs report on the first Friday of March?
The jobs report always is issued on the first Friday.....so is it that the Obama adminstration didn’t want the new jobs numbers affecting Super Tuesday????
I have no idea why, but I guess the numbers are bad ...
“Gingrich is the longest-serving teacher of the Joint Flag Officer Warfighting Course at the Air University. He has taught 44 courses there during the past 23 years. He also teaches officers from all five services as a distinguished visiting scholar and professor at the National Defense University, and has been doing so since it started in 1983.
Since leaving the speakership, he has given hundreds of unpaid hours to the Pentagon to work on various initiatives to meet 21st century threats, including his membership on The U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century, (better known as the Hart-Rudman Commission).”
Geez.,.. can you JUST IMAGINE Romney in a debate with Obama?
Romney: “Oh Yeah? I betcha $10,000 the economy is worse than it was when you tok office”
Yes, and he is leading in ALL the polls.
Oh wait, his baggage is in the way.
Anybody that will kiss up to Pelosi, is not going to win the nomination.
In order to win a debate with ZERO he must first get nominated! ! ! ! ! !
Pelosi is just one piece of baggage NOOT has. . . . .,
Don’t go to vote, moron, as long as you have “polls”. You belong to the sheeple fashioned by the lamestream media bile. All your post reeks of it. Cannot you do a honest research and stop swallowing the crap Obama’s slavish media feeds you with? You’re a hopeless case. I won’t waste more time on you.
Dear Speaker Gingrich, by PolitiJim (read it in full at the above link)
“With a chance of world wide monetary collapse imminent, massive conservative legislative battles ahead, foreign threats to our closest allies and soon-to-be nuclear-armed enemies who have already declared war on us I dont know of any candidate, running or not running, that has the following experience needed for such challenging times:
Standing up to forces that oppose conservatism without alienating them in a way that entrenches them against conservative policy,
Leveraging truth and balancing similar political interests to even get the liberals to balance a budget (multiple times) and agree to financial and governmental reform,
Building national conservative funding organizations to recruit future conservative lawmakers,
Studied and taught at the War College for over 20 years,
Developed a keen understanding and use of media to persuade the American people,
Being committed to continue learning ways to make Constitutional government run more efficiently and less expensively while being committed to get rid of that which is not the job of government,
Studying and developing the core tenants not just of policy, but of governing,
An ability to hold accountable those who have committed crimes of corruption and treason if the facts and circumstances warrant.
What people forget (even between debates it seems) is the gift God has given you to inspire and challenge Americans. Your message is one of uncompromising devotion to eliminate corruption and return power to the people. It is the hope of Ronald Reagan even our Founding Fathers that we can be redeemed once again. (You need to do this more often in my opinion.)
Rather than take the luxury of being impartial I feel that the times our country is in dictates for us to risk whatever we can. For me it is no longer protect my tiny insignificant blog branding concerns. Ive always been repulsed at the reporter or cameraman who feels that it is their duty to document disasters rather than being an American and jumping into the fire to save lives. Id be a hypocrite if I stayed on the sidelines any longer while our country faces the most severe test in her history. I only hope the Rush Limbaugh’s and Sarah Palin’s do the same, commit to someone and start going “all in” not just to defeat Barack Obama, but in creating a revolution within the GOP. I see that you always have believed that America can be great again. And we all have to start doing. To let the people know, justice WILL be enforced on everyone in government, business or education who is intentionally undermining this original Constitutional intent of this country. To quit just talking about how bad things are, and registering to enforce vote integrity, walk their neighborhoods and contribute time and money where needed to revive a people who are active in holding accountable this government that We are supposed to be running.
Since the times are too drastic to take a chance on those with unclear political motives, or no track record of actually reforming government, it is my honor therefore, to wholeheartedly endorse you as the next President of the United States.
I am not only for you, I am with you.
We can be redeemed. Again.”
A MUST-SEE speech: Newt Gingrich addresses the NRA in a way that No Other presidential candidate has before in 24 years!
If you enjoyed the speech, you must read Newt’s book
“To Try Men’s Souls”.
Mercer University seniors Gene Mitchell and Liz Bibb interviewed Newt Gingrich in Macon last Thursday:

Obummer and his henchmen haven’t finished cooking the books.
Newt: “Obama has a 9-9-9 Plan .... $9.99 a Gallon of Gas!”
Thank you very much. I got it. The video speaks for itself and I could never add to it. However, many of the American people will not get past the personal downfalls to see what we see. I hope this video can help put that in proportion.
Mr. Newt is the only candidate who can lead America to where we need to be. I only hope that I can put forth a good argument. God will help me.
The question was about who would be the best at debating Obummer, and neither Romney nor Santorum are as well equipped with the history and the facts as is Gingrich.
In fact, when Romney gets up the to debate Obama, it’s going to be a debate about who would do a better job at implementing Obamacare and all of the other liberal issues which Oobama would like, and which Romney would be very receptive to.
It would be Obama vs Obama The 2nd.
