Willing to Accept Santorum-Gingrich Ticket-Just Keep Newt's brain working for America
March 15, 2012 | Ralph Mitchell

Posted on 03/15/2012 9:23:10 AM PDT by mitchell001

It is hard to argue against Newt Gingrich's brainpower, skills, experience, ideas, & sincere desire to put America back in its rightful place as the leader of the free world both technologically and culturally. It would be ashame to exclude Newt Gingrich from the next administration that takes office, January 2013. In that vein, we conservatives should be willing to accept a Santorum-Gingrich or Gingrich-Santorum Ticket, denying Romney the nomination, in order to truly fix America with Conservative Ideas and Actions. This requires that both Santorum and Gingrich stay in the GOP race until the convention. Any takers?

I agree 110%!!!!!! I’m glad Newt is staying in. He knows we can’t have Mittens.

I would be willing to entertain Gingrich-Santorum. Then Rick can run the next round, he’s still young enough.

Santorum would not be willing to accept Newt. Everyone would know who was really the brains behind the outfit.

Newt VP? A Newt debate against Biden is even more entertaining than against THE ONE. It should be Pay-Per-View...

Even one term Newt and out. This is really a critical juncture. Give Santorum some saddle time.

I could support G-S or S-G, but we must not forget that including Santorum at any level will inevitably make this election about personal beliefs rather than ideas. The attacks on Palin were bad enough in 2008, but the press has already had several years to gather “dirt” on Santorum and has already guaranteed that social liberals of both parties will hate his guts. That’s why we need Newt at the top of the ticket: only he is capable of articulating a consistent message and controlling it equally consistently.

Newt is staying in so hopefully he can have some bartering power at the convention. Only way I could ever even fanthom getting behind RS is if he and Newt join forces

I decided weeks ago that Santorum / Gingrich ticket would be a dynamite pair.

I cannot stand Romney & I won’t vote for Mitt—not in any way, shape or form.

You must vote for Mitt if he’s the nominee. Also, will Noot accept a VP?? I kind of doubt it.

Works for me! It’s a good combo of fidelity to the Constitution and strong values. But I’d prefer Newt at the top, because I’d LOVE to see him debate Obama.

Correct.

The two choices we have, now that Santorum cannot reasonably garner enough votes to win the nomination, is either A) for both Newt and Santorum to stay in and split the remaining delegates, or B) for one of them to drop out and thus assure Romney will have 1144 delegates by convention time.

So this chimera is like Obama but the schizophrenia caused by the hive mind might partially paralyze it leaving our rights and republic somewhat safe until the next election cycle?

Well, its marginally better than Obama...

And the RNC cant figure out why donations dropped off...

You have a point, and one I agree with. Vice versa, Newt would accept Santorum and he can teach him a few things, and he has much to learn.

I would go so far as to say, Santorum will not have NEWT anywhere around him, for the same reason you pointed out.

However, if Newt decides on a Newt/Ricky ticket, I would reluctantly accept it.

Other than that, this mess can go to convention, although I expect the whole damn thing to burst into flames.

I think that would work nicely. However, I think Newt would be wasted as VP. He’d be much better in a cabinet position—and I think he’d probably prefer that, too.

I’d accept a combined ticket, though I honestly feel Gingrich should be the top of the ticket, and that if he is VP, that Santorum will either have to accept being a relative figure head status, or the infighting between the two will be legendary.

Just look at the current cycle, Gingrich may not have won any big states, but he and his ideas are CLEARLY driving the conversation. He attacked Obama on gas prices and put hte white house in panic mode, and its still the primary topic of converstaion, so much so now even Mittens is trying to co-opt it.

Gingrich should be our nominee, IMHO and if he were to be the beating that Obama would face will be monumental.. However, it doesnt look like that’s how its going to turn out, but I would accept it. I’d feel far more comfortable with a milk toast like Santorum as the top of the ticket with Newt on it, though I still feel Santorum’s a loser at the head of the ticket.. he’s just too easily painted effectively as an extremist, and he continues to provide soundbites daily that will be used against him in such a manner.

I always said I wanted Rick first, but would vote for Newt and NEVER romney. Especially after an interview I saw yesterday when he was asked about the base & and he said, “the base will vote for me” pure arrogance.

I see a man of heart and soul & a man who is highly intelligent. Together they would be phenomenal. That is the big argument we see here with the Newt vs Rick people. We both sides see qualities in these men that we want.

I got this off the ADF website.

The Agenda to Indoctrinate Children at School

These are quotes from a big leftist who want to change what your kids think “You may come to the conclusion that growing up means rejecting the values of your parents.”
“If we do our jobs right, we’re going to raise a whole generation of kids who don’t believe [the claims of Christianity].”
James Anderson, the former communications director of the
Gay, Lesbian, and Straight

There is an intense battle for the mind and soul of children at publicly funded schools where the dominant secular culture is undermining the Christian teaching of parents like you. Students are under great pressure to conform to the schools’ radical, anti-Christian views on issues such as abortion and homosexual behavior, which are imposed on them by secular textbooks, administrators, and teachers.

In fact, in states like Massachusetts – where same-sex “marriage” has been fabricated – school children as young as kindergarten are forced to learn about homosexual behavior in class – with or without parental permission.

As a result of this anti-Christian indoctrination in school, countless students begin questioning their faith and ultimately turn away from the Church by the time they graduate from high school.


Gay agenda is being pushed on schoolkids (Judge rules school must allow access to sexually explicit LGBT sites. A federal judge has ordered a Missouri school district to unblock its web filters and give students access to sexually explicit material by the middle of March.)
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2859203/posts

I have 3 sons and 4 grandsons & 2 granddaughters and I do not want them exposed to the lefts lies. I want there innocence protected. If the media was reporting the important things that Obama, his leftist gay friends and the media is doing to steal our childrens heart and soul; most people would be outraged.

Last week some here were debating Newt and Rick. I could tell some were very anti-faith, so I tried to stay on economics. Finally I said that there are some things that are more important them money. I was excoriated and told it was the most selfish, mean, hateful thing this person heard. Maybe I did not explain good enough what I meant, but all of us nowayromney people can work together.

What good is having lots of money if your kids/grandkids grow up to be faithless, self-induldgent, sex obsessed, big leftist? Part of us, lives on in our kids and grandkids. We have to protect them at all costs.

This is only one part of the cultural issue. I think Rick could hit obama right between the eyes with this. Example: “Obama believes that it is not only ok to have an abortion up to 9 months in the womb, but also AFTER a baby is born. “ Lots of women have had an abortion and feel guilty (I was a counselor at a Crisis Pregnancy Center for years & worked with those considering and those who have had an abortion) He could say something like. “There are millions of hurting women out there who are victims (the left likes to make people victims, we can throw it back at them) of people like obama who told them, its ok to get an abortion, it's not a baby, so they did out of fear or panic. Then later it hits them what they did and they realize they can't take back what happened and wish they could. These women are suffering because of the lies of the left who don't value life. Even life of a newly born baby.” I have worked with these women and there are millions of them looking for someone to speak to there issue in a compassionate way.

We could go from social issue to issue. Many people out here are scared and don't like what they see this country turning into. I'm one of those. Newt people can cover the economics.....

  I think both Gingrich and Santorum want to deny a Romney win before the convention. If they would just plan to campaign in different states, it would help. Then, they could further coordinate their efforts at the convention.

Gingrich/Santorum. This would give Santorum a chance to see how the real inter-workings of the real big time works. Right now this kid as a Senator has no idea with is involved as President. This kid would buckle under the pressure. Newt is a harden real bulldog and would whip ass.
