Gingrich speech spectacular. Santorum, Romney so so at Wisconsin Faith and Freedom Rally ^ | March 31, 2012 | Ralph Mitchell

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

Go to 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.

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."

Newt gets it. Which is why Kenny Mehlman's Log Cabin, Abomination of Nature, branch of the GeeOpie will do everything they can to keep him out of the oval office.

Yes, Newt can give nice speeches, but the American people never hear them and probably couldn’t understand them.

What a shame Newt wasn't pretty enough for the tribes. Santorum was close, but didn't have the big toothy smile Romney has. It's all about cult of personality is this American Idol nation.

Unfortunately, Mittens good looks won't carry him through debates with Obambi. Newt could have torn Obambi a new one if he was on stage. Romney will epic fail. He has no gumption.
