Newt Gingrich: No One Understands Me
National Journal ^ | 03/15/2012 | By Sarah Huisenga

Posted on 03/15/2012 11:22:38 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

PALATINE, Ill.--Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich on late Wednesday expressed frustration with both the news media and the Republican establishment for failing to understand his “large ideas” for transforming American politics.

As calls for Gingrich to bow out of the race grew louder after his second-place finishes in Mississippi and Alabama--two states he said he had a chance to win--the candidate seemed to be in low spirits and offered a grumpy analysis of the state of the GOP primary to a crowd that gathered for a Lincoln Day dinner in this northwestern suburb of Chicago.

“The thing I find most disheartening of this campaign is the difficulty of talking about large ideas on a large scale, because the news media can’t cover it and, candidly, my opponents can’t comprehend it,” Gingrich said, while also vowing to continue his campaign to the convention in Tampa this summer.

He called himself the only candidate of the four still in the contest “focused on ideas and … solutions and not just the usual politics,” and the only one advocating wholesale change to a political system that is “methodically and deliberately stupid.”

Other parts of his speech covered topics ranging from President Lincoln promoting the transcontinental railroad to the antifraud system of the American Express company. Gingrich spoke of the need for a “technological revolution” in government, but he lamented that no one but him seemed to understand that.

“Let me just talk for a second about technology and grand opportunities,” he said. “Other than Ronald Reagan, I know of no Republican in my lifetime who’s been able to talk about this. That’s why I’m still running.” The former House speaker from Georgia has recently focused his campaign on high gas prices, promising as president to restore them to no more than $2.50 a gallon. But he often also speaks at length on a wide range of topics, covering everything from brain science to space exploration to the need to utilize modern management practices to reform entire sectors of the government.

“I want to be the candidate of science and technology,” he said. “Whether it’s on energy, it’s on stopping crooks in Medicare and Medicaid, it’s on getting into space, which I was ridiculed [for], or it is on helping you make sure that your family doesn’t suffer from something that could be avoided.”

And he chided fellow Republicans for failing to see the need for a party makeover. The GOP, he said, has been governing like the Democratic Party since 2006, when it lost control of the Congress.

“We cannot be a normal party,” he told the suburban Republican crowd. “If we run a normal campaign, trying to govern within the framework of the current system, we have no future, because people would rather have Democrats do it. They at least enjoy it.”

He hits the nail on the head right there.

Its hard to buck the system. Newt is probably feeling pretty frayed from the pressure to quit.

Newt, the smartest boy in the class never gets elected to the top job.

Love ya man, but as I wrote you before the campaign started, maybe V-P or Sec. of State is the spot for you.

The MSM has figured out that the best way for them to handle Newt is to pretend he isn’t there. They refuse to mention him, unless of course they lump him in with the deranged Ron Paul.

Mitt and Little Saint Ricky are probably as uncomprehending of the Big Ideas that Newt is talking about as any average D.C. buffoon. They don’t care unless it 1.) Gives them money, and/or, 2.) Gives them power. Good for America? So what... What do I get out of it?

The only candidate left who sees D.C. as the problem, and not a solution is Newt. Both Mittens and Little Saint Ricky see D.C. and Big Government as a tool to use, so that they can better mold the Country to suit their wishes. Get Government to do more. Newt correctly views Government as something to be cut back and starved, so that freedom can again grow.

As Newt supporters like to say - Rick is a whiner. Who’s whining now?

Newt, I can’t get no respect - Gingrich is the correct answer.

Sorry, but, when Freepers keep up their constant put down of Rick, calling him Little Saint Ricky, I just have to throw it back at them.

And, yes, I can vote for either Newt or Rick. I’m sill not convinced I can vote for Mittens. However, I guess it depends on how far obama goes during this election cycle and how deep my loathing can go.

No need to put words in my mouth.

Little Saint Ricky is a terrible candidate, mainly due to the fact that he is a Big Government guy. We have had plenty enough of that and it is time we tried something different.

The path to victory will not be by getting people to vote against something. Victory is acheived by getting people to vote for something, like Reagan was able to do. Neither Mittens or Little Saint Ricky offer any ideas that are compelling, only the same old focus grouped boilerplate. If either of them are the nominee, I will vote for them simply because they are light-years better than the alternative. The difference is, I am only voting against Il Douche and not for someone whom I feel will bring America back.

Besides, as stated before, the rats are praying (in their own special way) that Little Saint Ricky is the nominee because they will gut him like a fish.

What’s he talking about?

If the whole set of statements was put together and in context, we might know what he really said and meant. Some fools will no doubt be talking about his "enormous ego" and "hubris", but even the words in the article are basically true - he's the only one who has put together cogent analyses of where we are and where we need to head. He may be frustrated, but the article tries to make him sound whiny because he points out some sorry truths - the rest of the field and the GOP-e either don't comprehend and grasp the whole picture or they are deliberatley avoiding it because it indicates the need for real and substantive changes in the course we are on.

YOU’RE CORRECT.

This primary is all about stopping Newt by shutting out Newt, and Rush did that today

He went on about Obama and oil for the first hour and only mentioned that Obama was answering Newt Gingrich, but added that Newt won’t win the nomination!

Well, how about that? What if Rush had said, “Vote Newt the rest of the way?”

If you want big ideas without the big ego, Newt's best bet would be to push Paul Ryan at a brokered convention.

You know, the guy he denounced for right wing social engineering. Is there any possibility of that happening?

But let's get real. It is a two man race now. The blue guy is not going to step aside to help the red guy.

I am not saying the red guy has to get out an endorse the blue guy. That's up to him. He is welcome to stay in as long as he wants for whatever reasons he wants. Unless, of course, those reasons are scorched earth to pave the way for an easy ObaMao re-election and get back at the rest of us for not bowing to his infinite wisdom.


Seven reasons for Rick Santorum


  1. Who has won the most states without the benefit of their own money, last election's organization or a billionaire casino sugar daddy?
  2. Who is everybody's second choice when he isn't their first?
  3. Who can get both the Romney people and the Gingrich people, who hate each other, to vote for him?
  4. Who has the best record on immigration?
  5. Who has the best plan for repealing ObamaCare? And is the only GOP candidate who didn't help write or approve legislation which helped spawn this fiasco?
  6. Who has the best plan for expanding the American economy and strengthening American families?
  7. Who is the closest thing we have to the "generic Republican" which polls show consistently beating Obama and is most likely to make the election about Obama's sorry record rather than about himself?

It was a great speech. He gave the GOP-e insiders and operatives a grown up talk. Yes, change the GOP/the democratic party and the GOP party is the same Now. I admire him every day. Newt wants big solutions for Change. Newt is right. We cannot keep the normal party, the party we have now operating AS it is. Duh. What kind of people cannot get that message. No wonder we cannot move to a direction of change.

Newt is also correct about the media deliberately keeping his ideas out of the news. Why? Because he is the only one who has great ideas with problem solving answers.

It looks like the part of the common folk maybe settling or leaning for ABO and he’s trying to cut through that filter. People are lazy-minded- (and not very smart-they might become intimated by Newt who is smart so..what do they do-make silly jokes or make that person seem irrelevant. Kinda like the media, too..

Look at these voters who are fighting for change-do you think they will make the right decision so we can get change? Mitt (Romneycare change) Ricky ( preacher-man/another Bush change) Newt (visionary change)

Newt is right, as always. The media leads them. He is has a right to be worried about our country going off a cliff. Many of us believe in his ideas which will keep America as the way we love her not this same definition of America. I want change, nothing in this world would make me vote for Romney. If you vote for Romney, you, in my eyes, are not a liberty loving person. Take your Romney slogan- if he is the one, I will vote for and shove it ( watching Tv with the love of Mitt is too much anymore) Keep fighting, Mr. Speaker and win your delegates-onto Tampa. Some of us know it will take a hell of a fighter to have any chance for change in this Huge corrupt system that we have now. ( Go onward)

To be sure, Rush has been a gigantic disappointment in that regard. He was behind Newt early on, and for some bizarre reason began pimping Little Saint Ricky. I doesn’t make any sense.

It is certain that the establishment types make out well with either Mittens or Little Saint Ricky, as the D.C. gravy train will keep on rolling under their watch. The only credible threat to that continued money fountain is Newt.

Oh, well...

Newt knows about big solutions. He cheated on two wives and married the last one. As far as we know, yet, no other bimbos will show up on cue.

I am sure if we fail to see the brilliance of Newt, he will remind us, over...and over....and over. Newt says there is only one person smarter than me and that would still be me, Newt. Yuk yuk

Yep. Can’t upset the Beltway gravy train which only Newt Gingrich can and will do.

Rush showed himself a status-quo Republican, not anything else.

I quit listening to him, but my husband hasn’t, so when he told me today that Rush was talking oil right out of Newt’s playbook, and would certaintly mention or give Newt credit, I went into the kitchen to listen. Huge disappointment.

I even tried to call several times. No luck in getting through and I was prepared to read him the riot act. I might try again tomorrow.

I'll give Santorum credit for big solutions. He's a Big Government Conservative.

And you might not want to get into a discussions about candidates wives without doing a little research.

Good Lord. I didn't listen to Rush today. I had No idea that he had said this. Shameful and can't see why people don't see that Rush is always for the establishment candidate. Always. His listeners have made him so big though he is One that is Never for change-he just uses the idea of change Washington- to gain listeners because when it gets to the petal to the metal, he always swings back for the establishment. As he did with HW and GW Bush as they were spending money going of style. I guess he is telling us to accept Romney No way that I will vote for Saint Rick either. What a shameful man he is Imo.

I think Newt has the biggest insecurity complex I have ever seen. He hates being made fun of like Romney did to him in Florida and now the press is asking him to leave. I think it reminds him of sixth grade when he was made fun of for being a geek. I guarantee he was not anywhere near the cool kid in class. I feel very sorry for him but he does not do well when things are negative. He cannot be trusted with the nuclear codes. Good Lord. One day of really bad press and he might just launch something.

You know, I have not yet been able to figure out the total avoidance thing Rush has been doing with Newt. Makes you wonder! He didn't do this when Pastor Huckabuddy ran. He acted as if he was clueless as to what his buddy Drudge was doing on bloody Thursday.

You would think he would have at least defended Newt against the incessant “baggage” comment. After all, Rush should understand baggage.

The world is certainly tangled these days.

Rush pretends he doesn’t have a dog in the fight, but I listen to him regularly, and he has been damning Newt with faint praise for months. I really have no use for Rush as a kingmaker. The only reason I listen to his show is for when he goes into the details of politics in Washington that no one else will go into. I think Rush really wants Romney to win.

It is as delusional as thinking...

if gingrich stays in it will usher in himself,palin or anybody to save this country

it is insane what I watched on this forum,bachmann,perry bashed and now santorum...all in the hopes that someone that was labeled a RINO (do a search when articles were posted when gingrich announced;he was called a RINO) is reformed.good conservatives were dissed for some one that did not even run and it was posted only they knew it was a spiritual calling of palin ONLY because sun tsu said so and now newt is going to usher in hope and palin. or himself and his inflated arrogant ego?
I thought this was an independent grassroots conservative site.when did it turn into a cult that has no logical goal but enabling obama and
romney?
