Skip to comments.WOLF: Mitt beat Rick, but Newt beat Barack

Only one Republican has made Obama squirm
This wouldn't be the first time the media missed the real story. In the wake of a split Super Tuesday, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum scored wins against each other, but it was former Speaker Newt Gingrich who single-handedly drove President Obama into panic mode.
And then there was Newt Gingrich, the Lazarus of the presidential campaign, as the Drudge Report recently called him, ready to rise once again. While the mainstream media stayed focused on the game of checkers between Mr. Romney and Mr. Santorum, Mr. Gingrich forced President Obama into an astonishing game of chess.
In a 30-minute video titled "$2.50 per Gallon Gasoline, Energy Independence and Jobs," Mr. Gingrich unveiled his vision for renewed American prosperity centered around oil and natural-gas production. He demonstrated his unparalleled insight into the intersection of energy, security and prosperity. Mr. Gingrich rightly declared that never again should an American president bow before a Saudi king. Meanwhile, Mr. Obama, stung by his recent half-billion-dollar failed Solyndra boondoggle, began floating his latest green fantasy of harvesting algae to cure the pain at the pump.
Panicked by Mr. Gingrich, Mr. Obama was forced off his game and repeatedly tried to respond, only making matters worse for himself. He stayed true to the Democrats' anti-energy agenda and mocked Republicans for wanting to drill for new oil. This made the president the butt of a joke for Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show": Democrats claim that new drilling for oil won't help us for at least 10 years, but haven't they been saying that now for more than 10 years?

Dr. Wolf knows the one man his cousin fears - and down deep, we all know who that is.
Well said, and so true.
I agree. Newt is the one that can take it to Obama. He will make Obama look like the fool he is. GO NEWT GO!
How come Romney doesn't say/do stuff like this? IMHO, for two reasons: 1. He's just not that smart. 2. He knows deep down there's no way he'll beat nobama.
Bump for later
Newt is the only one calling Obama a radical and mentioning Saul Alinsky. He is taking him on regarding all his radical designs on America. Go Newt!
Newt is the man!
You’re right on both counts. He’s sadly lacking in the smarts department and I’ve no doubt he knows he can’t beat “The Won.”
I was quite impressed by this article. I hope more of the voting public will be responsible and do their own research. Mr. Newt has an amazing depth of knowledge and his ability to come back on any topic is what makes him such a dangerous candidate for the opposition.
Romney and Santorum just do not have the ability to come up with the right response in a matter of seconds, and Mr. Newt seems to achieve greatness in a matter of moments. That is what it will take, along with the courage to turn the questions around on the moderators. The debates will be what America needs to see for the contrast they will display.
Mr. Newt is the only candidate with the ability to fight the liberal press and all they will bring. Romney will get flustered, and Santorum will get tougue-tied. I hope the American people will utilize their ability to cut through all the negative ads and do their own research. Those negative ads have really done a number on Mr. Newt, and he will just have to work twice as hard to bring himself back to where he needs to be.
Right On, Frank!!
He knows what he is doing. I hope he can be our nominee.
At the risk of insulting all the Santorum supporters: “you are supporting Santorum!”
Newt can trash Obama in a debate — heck, he’s trashing him and they’re not even debating!
This is absolutely the gist of it. Nothing more needs to be said.
I think that's a very good point. A presidential campaign is an ongoing debate, not just a debate event. Newt has shown he excels in this.
Ping. You may be interested in this one.
Poll I saw here today indicated a large % of Americans worried about high gas prices.
Jaz, earlier this evening I was watching a you tube from Hardball- Matthews was frothing- he wanted Newt to withdraw.
I found this curious,because all along, Matthews had wanted Newt in— presumably to attenuate the process to the GOP detriment. So, why the switch? Well, ultimately, Matthew played a clip of Newt at a gas pump with the nozzle in his hand- and Matthews called him an “opportunist”.
But, now Matthews reversal made sense— From Matthew’s perspective, Newt is now not hurting the GOP, at least not as much as he’s hurting Obama.
This article makes the identical point.
Thanks for the ping, RS.
It is notable when the occasion occurs that it is only NEWT the president actually answers when on the stump during his stops around the country.
Obama doesn’t much want Newt’s ideas catching on does he, and has no worries with Santorum and Romney, as neither have any ideas. They are safely stuck in the generalities and the usual campaign pap.
Romney attacked Newt, said this was “pandering”.
“Democrats claim that new drilling for oil won’t help us for at least 10 years, but haven’t they been saying that now for more than 10 years?”
They’ve been saying it for more than THIRTY (30!) years, to be more precise.
LOVE your poster. First I’ve seen it.
Newt is the guy who will make Obama’s teleprompters go blank!!
NO Newt... Zero gets re-elected..
and even with Newt its a crap shoot..
American women especially republican women suffer from terminal NICE..
Democrat women are in the bag for the log legged Mack Daddy..
They HATE Newt because hes a mean SOB... metaphorically..
But Obama is a SOB as well, but because his mother was a B!tch..
American women can’t figure out what kind of SOB they want..
I’m going with Newt.. most of these women are National Security Risks..
as is BArry Half-White.. the REAL Manchurian Candidate..
I think many American women suffer from terminal STUPID!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I just completed watching “Newt Gingrich and The Republican Revolution.” It was without a doubt the most comprehensive review of Mr. Newt’s leadership I have ever seen. I hope you all have watched it, but if not, please take the time and pass it on to everyone you can think of.
I am almost without words to explain how enlightened I have become, and how compelled I am to do absolutely everything I can do to see that Mr. Newt wins this nomination. I feel even stronger now than ever that Mr. Newt must become our next President. Our magnificent America is crumbling before our eyes. I pray that Mr. Newt can rejuvenate his campaign to become our next President. Our country deserves nothing less.
God blessed America in so many ways, I can only hope that God has Mr. Newt in his plans to bring America back to what we as Americans deserve. Mr. Newt needs all of us to help him accomplish this enormous task which will not end on Election Day, but will be the beginning of a new America with a restoration of our values and principles.
Newt Gingrich and The Republican Revolution. is very fair and accurate. I’m old eough to have lived through it and that is the way I remember it.
Also, when you consider the ungrateful trash that stayed after Newt left, Boehner, Lindsay Graham, Santorum, etc, and you consider how much was lost on their watch, it’s infuriating! No wonder the Republican establishment doesn’t want Newt back. They are complicit with the Democrats.
That's really the group that is fighting hardest against Gingrich and has done everything possible to undermine and marginalize his campaign. Santorum, of course, is part of it and is simply carrying on business as usual (he was part of the group that, while elected on Gingrich's Contract With America coat-tails, turned liberal on him and forced him out).
Aside from that, however, I'm glad to see this article, which I missed yesterday. I too noticed that Newt is the only one who has made Obama angry and nervous and provoked a response from him.
Who is this man's cousin?
and we all know Mitt has hurt Newt’s chances with his lies. I will never forgive Mitt for lies.
Dr. Milton R. Wolf is Obama's cousin!! Guess he would know what a disaster Obama is, if anybody does.
