Gingrich speech spectacular. Santorum, Romney so so at Wisconsin Faith and Freedom Rally
http://www.cspan.org ^ | March 31, 2012 | Ralph Mitchell

Posted on 03/31/2012 2:19:18 PM PDT by mitchell001

Go to Cspan.org and watch the 3 GOP candidates speak at the Wisconsin Faith and Freedom Rally. Do you agree with me that Newt Gingrich knocked out of the park, while Santorum continues with his whining how he is better than Romney and Romney tells stories about senior citizens who cannot retire? Believe me, we may be in trouble with either Santorum or Romney. Newt would beat Obama in a landslide.

Definitely! They both have good, sound ideas and the knowledge and determination to carry them out.

Correctamundo! That was his best ever.

Give Newt the nomination. He will grab Hussein by his Marxist throat and never stop squeezing.

You can forget it — it would be too good to be true.

The Republican electorate is more liberal than what it pretends to be. Their overwhelming choice of Romney proves it.

“The Republican electorate is more liberal...”

I’m convinced it is as well as the country regardless what Rush says; or, maybe it’s more ignorant/uninformed than we’d like it to be.

There are "objects of the most stupendous magnitude, and measures in which the lives and liberties of millions yet unborn are intimately interested" (John Adams) before us in this Year 2012!!!

Those words are as applicable and appropriate today as they were when Adams first penned them!

On June 9, 1776, John Adams wrote from Philadelphia, "Objects of the most stupendous magnitude, and measures in which the lives and liberties of millions yet unborn are intimately interested, are now before us . . . ."

On June 11, a Committee was formed to develop a declaration of their intentions.

On July 4, 1776, a lengthy Declaration of Independence was adopted which changed the world! William Ellery, Rhode Island, later wrote that he stood where he could watch every person sign the document: "I was determined to see how they all looked as they signed what might be their death warrant. I . . . eyed each closely . . . . Undaunted resolution was displayed on every countenance."

What a contrast! Our ancestors, in less than a month, took the kind of courageous action that leaders who love their country take on behalf of liberty for "millions yet unborn," accomplishing in just weeks what no civilization had accomplished before.

Today, feckless pretenders to leadership, living like kings in previous monarchies, personally risking nothing, make excuses for inaction and allow the precious inheritance of freedom to be risked for the sake of political power.

Who will emerge to bring excitement and enthusiasm of America's youth to the cause of liberty?

Who will risk all on behalf of "the lives and liberties of millions yet unborn"?

No surprise. The American people however are not smart enough to nominate Newt or to vote for him in the general. This is by design. The Founding Fathers would vomit if they saw the "universal suffrage" which has polluted the governance of the Republic.

2012 Presidental election will take place on August 24th or shortly later as with Newt as nominee, we will have a new President; without Newt, we have 4 more years of Obama or longer.

We don’t have to wait until November.

Agree that Gingrich is the one whose grasp and understanding of founding ideas can outwit, expose, and defeat the counterfeit ideas of Obama.

After all, those tyrannical ideas cannot stand exposure to the light of reason. Such notions must be hidden in promises of "goodies" from "government" and masked by semantics and a hugely engaging smile, once they have been applauded.

A candidate whose focus is on "issues" like "jobs" (critical as they are) must possess something much deeper--a principle, if you will--which gives voters an "ah-hah" moment, if he is to reveal Obama's arguments to be the shallow and desperate attempts of a power-hungry wannabe ruler.

I completely agree. Santorum served us well in PA, but I don’t think he could win in the fall and I am convinced that Romny will be another Dole or McCain.

The 40% choice?

That's what you mean, right?

There is no overwhelming body of people behind him ~ not the worker-bees, not the rank and file, not the elderly, not the young, not the Reagan Democrats, not the Catholics, not the............

They had to cheat to get Romney across in Virginia.

I'll just have to assume you had an invisible (/s) in there somewhere.

Unfortunately, at this point, it looks like one of the two GOP-E selected candidates will get the nomination. Gingrich appeals to the +1σ and above IQ crowd, which unfortunately only makes up ~15% of the total area under the bell curve, which is about what he's been getting in each of the recent elections. Santorum and Romney have a broader appeal because it is a lower appeal. Sad, but it works.

Exactly. How far we have fallen from where our Founders were at.

I’m disgusted by the mewling I see here on FR by the people who think we have to roll over and accept Romney otherwise “you just help re-elect Obama.”

1: Romney would be little different, so it’s not like it matters, and

2: These people are such fearful bootlicks that the concept of actually trying to put together a broad-based conservative alternative to the dicephalic single-party system we have right now is anathema to them - they’d rather sigh and resign themselves to socialism by one means or another than do anything that might resemble heavy lifting to try to do something about the situation.

Mark my words. In November, our country will greatly regret that it did not support the one real conservative candidate, Newt Gingrich.

In the following weeks and months, the head Skittle, Obama.... will bring us all to our knees... or worse.

The calling everyone a RINO reminds me of one of the greatest jokes ever, by Emo Philips —
http://m.guardian.co.uk/stage/2005/sep/29/comedy.religion?cat=stage&type=article

Sooner or later we’ll point at our closest pal and shout RINO! If this keeps up. I donated to Perry then Santorum, and this election, like 2008, my yard sign will have only the Pub VP candidate’s name on it.

At this point, if the RNC insists on carrying out it’s attempt to nominate the Mormon Melchidezek Bishop MYTH ROMNEY, a degenerate coward from a family of military service avoiding degenerate cowards, it must be destroyed, and the GOP along with it.

Rick gives so many speeches that he can’t be stellar all the time. He’s had only three days off in the past year or so. I wish everyone could hear Rick Santorum speak as he did at the Pa. Leadership Conference on March 24th. He was on fire! It was one of the most moving speeches that any conservative could hope to hear. He (and Cain and Gingrich as well) proved themselves to be not merely GOOD candidates, but GREAT candidates for President at our conference. Bob

Newt’s my first choice, but I’ll vote for Rick if Newt drops out. He’s a basically grounded, normal human being, which is not the norm for a politician (unlike, e.g., Romney.)

BYW, here’s Santorum’s speech at the PA Leadership conference you referred to:

His speech gives hope where I’d almost given up all hope for the future. It’s probably false hope since Romney doesn’t have the knowledge or conviction to accomplish anything great. The potential doesn’t even exist in Romney. Still... maybe America can survive. —sigh—

After watching the entire program, I would definitely vote for the one-two punch of R & R! Reed and Ryan were the best speakers there, with Newt being a close third.

As Much as I hate to say it, Willard did well also, but Rick sounded like an amateur compared to these. Kind of missed the comedy relief of wRong Paul, though.

You betcha. That would be awesome. But the first ones in line to vote no would be the RNC, most of the Republicans Representatives and Senators, FOX News presenters, and Dick Morris and Carl Rove from the establishment. Of course, we would expect that from the Democraps and the Devil but it does not speak well for those that don’t accept what comes with having an (R) after your name.

good grief - talk about out of touch with real Americans - we know Mitt is ignorant of what it’s like to be a regular citizen, that he had always lived in a rarified bubble and never rubbed elbows with the common folk.

But he’s dumb enough to admit it and tell us about some real people he has met in the campaign and how astonished he is that they have worth -

The rest of his talk is just boiler plate rhetoric - unlike Newt, no steps lined out as to how to achieve any of the things that need to be done.

Plastic man...

Lord, Save us from obama - but not with THIS numb nuts -

I attended this conference and heard the speeches in person. I agree with your assessment, except that I thought Santorum was better than so-so. But, he did look tired. (Who wouldn’t with the schedule he’s keeping?)

Gingrich was spectacular, except that he always has Calista at his side bobbing her head up and down and clapping her hands at everything he says. Nobody else had his wife on stage. It looked dumb.

Newt was excellent on many levels. While he had kind words for Newt and that he’s served with Rick for years; I respectfully disagree with Paul Ryan’s endorsement. Romney seemed lost looking for applause lines and sounded a bit horse. Santorum I had to shut off.

I’ve been off this forum for more than 40 days. Probably no one has noticed or cares. I left after the Florida primaries. Newt was my guy. Each time he opened his mouth it was a learning experience. Unfortunately the majority of repubs and conservative media hounds saw it differently.

Have given up alcohol and red meat for Lent along with shutting down the TV esp the news outlets including Fox. Haven’t listened to Rush during this time and alas haven’t read or posted on FR until this AM.

What have I learned? My friends, I’ve learned what we’ve expected. The media, from all sides, bombards us 24/7 with their propaganda. This includes Rush, Hannity etc.

Secondly, nothing really newsworthy has happened during this time. So, again, I’m glad I’ve focused on my own spirtual reawakening instead of that which is focused in the media, and even here.

The only thing important is what we do each day to ourselves and those around us.

I have no respect for the likes of Ann Coulter and even Michelle Malkam has let me down. IT’s clear that the story is and will always be about them.

This country is in trouble we all know that. All we can do, is in are own little way make each day brighter for someone else.

I think of this daily and even more now with the start of Holy Week.

We will NEVER vote for backstabber RINO Romney


Romney for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"
