LAKE IN THE HILLS ..Newt Gingrich laid out plans Thursday for how the United States can again see $2.50 a gallon gasoline and create jobs in America.
......If we become the No. 1 supplier of oil in the world, and we are independent on energy, we can say to the Saudis, Your period of subsidizing terrorism is over, Gingrich said.
He said drilling for oil in the U.S. could put trillions of dollars into the federal governments coffers that could help pay down the debt...
When I was speaker, we balanced the budget for four years, and when Santorum was in the leadership, they borrowed $1.7 trillion, Gingrich said. Theres a big difference between fiscal conservatism and politics as usual.
John Jonelis, 59, of Crystal Lake said he enjoyed the speech.
I thought it was a terrific speech. I thought he spoke to the entrepreneurial spirit of America, Jonelis said. He was articulate, hes a great communicator; hes the best communicator Ive heard out of politicians since Ronald Reagan.
Cendy Luto, 52, of Crystal Lake took half of a personal day from work to see Gingrich. Shes a fourth-grade teacher and was at the speech early to make sure that she was right up front.
What he says, hes going to deliver on, Luto said. I love that hes going to get the gas down; I know he will. Hes not doing a bunch of empty promises.
Hes very intelligent, nothing rattles his cage, and I respect that.
Kathy McCole, 52, of Crystal Lake, who works in customer support for a software company, was thrilled that a presidential candidate came to the area.
...She said she is supporting Gingrich because she shares his conservative values.
I think hes smart, articulate, and he says it like it is, McCole said.

On American energy independence That plant kills people! Mitt is struggling to learn a second language.
He flatly rattled off talking points -- no discussion -- and when he'd stop, Hannity would fill in the pieces he'd missed.
It is obvious that he isn't an avid energy independence advocate.
They both have the same insurance company and the younger guy says they're both sort'a connected and the older guy says. "No we're not"
Yes we are .... No we're not
And the commercial ends with a look on the young guys face that says "Yes we are, why don't you admit it"
That's Newt ... the obvious best qualified, but the other party just won't admit it.
I'm not ruling out shenanigans at the poll putting so much Rick into the fray.
I’ve seen that commercial — the way the younger driver raises his eyebrows to add emphasis, is the best part.
exactly ... very effective statement.
My wife and I love that comercial too. The young guy reminds us of our son inlaw,who by the way is a great conservitive.
Amen!...and may God part the red sea when he gets there!
