Gingrich to Romney: Pick Conservative Platform
NBC ^ | April 2, 2012 | Alex Moe

Posted on 04/02/2012 10:13:09 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Newt Gingrich unveiled a new message to Mitt Romney Monday morning during a campaign stop in Maryland: if the former Massachusetts governor does become the Republican nominee, pick a conservative platform.

But speaking on the eve of three primaries that could potentially seal the Republican nomination in Romney’s favor, Gingrich vowed to only exit the race if a candidate gets the required delegates.

““I will be going to Tampa, Callista and I will both be going to Tampa, because we are going to fight for a conservative platform,“ Gingrich said. “He [Romney] has to win 1,144 uncontested delegates. At that point, the question is going to become, if he wants our support in the general election, let’s talk about the platform and it better be a solid, 21st century conservative platform based on sound principles that we can stick to.”

Gingrich, speaking to a couple of hundred people at a Ford dealership in western Maryland, noted that he took the recent Etch A Sketch comments from Romney’s communication director “very seriously” and worried that “clever” consultants would hinder a platform conducive to more conservative Republicans.

The former House Speaker also argues the former governor is being awarded too many delegates from Florida, Arizona, and Idaho because the states are supposed to be proportional by RNC rules.

Campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond tells NBC News that the campaign has sent letters to those states' Republican Parties to correct the errors.

.........One topic Gingrich loves to talk about -- the court system in America -- came up Monday morning, as well.

Perhaps in an appeal to the Tea Party attendees in the audience with “don’t tread on me” flags, Gingrich launched a new attack on Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg for her comments on the U.S. constitution.....

.....FREDERICK, Maryland — After a week of laying off his rivals, GOP contender Newt Gingrich today tore into Mitt Romney, saying, “You can’t run a campaign with no principles,” and vowing to “go to Tampa” to contest the nomination.

Gingrich showed no signs of quitting the race, arguing that Romney does not have close to the 1,144 delegates needed to secure the nomination and insisting there is still the possibility of an open convention in Tampa.

“I can’t tell you today how realistic it is that we will get to an open convention, and I can’t tell you today with any certainty that I will be the nominee,” Gingrich told a modest crowd in the showroom at a car dealership.

“But I can tell you a couple of things. Despite six years of campaigning, $40 million dollars of his own money, millions raised from Wall Street — largely from people who got our tax money from the bailout — Governor Romney doesn’t have it locked down. And we have no obligation to back off and concede anything until he does.”....

"Along with his fellow GOP presidential candidates, former Georgia Congressman Newt Gingrich spoke at the Wisconsin Faith and Freedom Coalition [C-SPAN video] over the weekend, where he once again emphasized that the 2012 presidential election is the most important election of our lifetime.

“This is a historic cultural fight for the very survival of American civilization,” said Gingrich, adding that President Barack Obama’s re-election “would be a disaster for our children and grandchildren.”

Gingrich, a former Speaker of the House, said that Obama’s administration offers the most radical leadership in modern American history and that “we need an administration which actually thinks religious liberty includes Christians and Jews.”

The Speaker said his decision to join the GOP presidential field was influenced by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that the Pledge of Allegiance cannot be recited in schools because the statement “one national under God” equals government endorsement of a religion therefore violating separation of state and church."....Source

...............[WI campaign director Robert]”Lorge said that in conference calls with the national team there has been discussion about the possibility of consolidating Santorum and Gingrich delegates at the Republican National Convention in order to overcome Romney’s delegate math.

“I imagine there’s going to be a lot of negotiation and compromising between the pro-Newt Gingrich and the pro-Rick Santorum delegates,” he said. “You may have a Newt Gingrich-Rick Santorum ticket. You may have a Rick Santorum-Newt Gingrich ticket. Nobody knows how that ticket’s going to work out. But I imagine it’ll end up being something like that.”

Pointing to Gingrich’s accomplishments in the House, Lorge believes delegates will see that his candidate is the only one with the experience necessary to be the White House.

“America is a republic,” Lorge said. “We’re not a democracy. We don’t believe in mob rule. We hire people by electing them to represent us. We’re a representative democracy, that’s what we talk about. Our Founding Fathers were very wise in not having a straight, pure democracy. We have a republic for a reason so that wiser decisions, calm decisions can be made in the best interest of the nation as a whole and that is what Newt Gingrich is all about.”

The amount of chaos and strategy that would be involved in the open convention scenario is so mentally demanding that it’s hard to imagine any other candidate but Newt Gingrich believing it is possible.”....

Gingrich to Romney: Pick Conservative Platform

That is like trying to convince the Pope to give Scientology a try. There isn't a Conservative bone in Milts body. He just doesn't understand the concept in the least.

A conservative platform! Yes! That’s it! We all know that our esteemed R politicians observe the things the grassroots put in platforms...

I won’t vote for Romney, and I suspect that the only thing that could get him elected are gas prices.

The R establishment is forcing the most unelectable candidate on us.

While Newt’s at it, I hope he fights for delegate reallocation rules to favor states which have actually voted GOP in presidential elections. Why does DC get to pick 19 delegates when they have less than 0% chance of voting GOP in the fall, whereas Delaware (which has at least a 10% chance of giving the GOP three electoral votes) only gets 17?

Sorry Newt, but it won’t make a bit of difference what platform Mitt runs on. He’ll still say and do anything he wants. You should know by now that an etch-a-sketch can always be erased.

One of Mitt’s many propaganda websites did say that the republican party has moved to join him in his 1994 support of gay rights, I suppose that means support for ENDA. If that is the case, the republican party has already left conservatives, but I would still hate to let him add that plank to the platform.

*********

For Newt supporters, this is the moment. The moment for people with vision, for those born to the dig-down-deep, to go forth day after day with only faith and self-motivation to bind them. This is the hill to die on, to drill down and do it, no matter how impossible it seems, no matter how much it will cost. It's time to save a country in spite of itself...

GO NEWT!! Onto Tampa - Hang Tight - We Can Do This!

With making Romney their guy this time, I don’t think the GOP was really looking to worry about the conservative vote this time.

I believe their idea was to peel off democrats who no longer like Obama, independents, regular GOP voters that are moderate, and some conservatives that want Obama gone.

They know there will be some that won’t vote for Mitt, but they also know that it won’t be enough to matter a whole lot.

There has to be some method to the madness.

Brilliant move-keep the focus on conservatism which Romney does not have that inner core of.

If you get to a contested convention, we may have a good chance of rejecting liberal democrat Romney.

Even Clinton is hoping for Romney(what does that say-that he
can be beat because of his flips flops of voting to promises that he would keep) If we end up with Romney, I think this is the last days for the republican party-who will follow them-really-look at the damage in which the rhinos are doing; just this year alone. Everyone has to face up to-that every politician goes to D.C,. becomes one of them/the problem. We need someone going there, who is Not one of them and does big things. Palin and Newt are the most disrespected by the party along with other conservatives ( Like Gov. Perry & Herman Cain)

Of course Mitt will pick a conservative platform to throw a bone to us. I don’t expect him to give it another thought though after the election.

Newt does much better when he sticks to his usually positive message.

I regret he is not doing better, but he was fatally injured by Romney's Super PAC. He will soon be out, because all of his big financial support will likely pull out after tomorrow.

It's sad to see it happen.

If Newt happens to get a VP spot, can you imagine Newt going against Biden in a debate? I would pay good money to see that!

Although realistically, Obama might fire Biden and bring Hillary over for VP. If that happens, he will rip her as well, but the MSM will somehow prevent that vulnerable scenario.

I hope to see more of Newt, but it’s important to remember the movement is bigger than any one man and there are more battles to come. I think the biggest problem facing conservatives is the Republican Party (the establishment). They are completely hostile to conservatives.

I am still salivating at the idea of a Gingerich/Obama debate!!!

Visualizing “O” as a puddle on the floor is helping me get through all this other campaign BS!!

And don't forget the best part - Day One!!

      Newt sanctimony biflex dweeb    

          SUBSTANCE                                               TALKING POINTS

 

Newt Hits the Reset Button.

Day One will be epic, and then he’ll get really busy.

No one can say they don’t know what Newt will do after his inauguration.

He’s got big plans…

On January 20, 2013, within two hours of placing his family photos on the Resolute Desk,  President Gingrich will have signed an executive order to cashier all of the Obama czars.  Then, he’ll sign one to approve the oil pipeline from Canada to Houston.  By lunch, he’ll have moved the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.  Next up would be re-instituting Ronald Reagan’s Mexico City policy, to forbid spending money to subsidize abortion overseas…  

By the time ex-President Obama “lands in Chicago,” he aims to have repealed “40 percent of Obama’s government.”

Newt wants every Republican candidate to campaign with him on a pledge to hit the next Congress in a monster jam session that repeals the job-killing centralized corruption of ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank, and Sarbanes-Oxley by the time he’s sworn in…

And that's just an appetizer... Newt’s economic plans include:

Oh, and he won’t be bowing to any Saudi kings.

Newt has pledged to have a full list of his proposed executive orders and presidential findings published online by October, so that every voter will know exactly what they’re getting.

While Romney has been running for President for years, and Santorum has consistently supported increasing the size of government, and spending taxpayers' money, Newt has been planning and proposing solutions to rescue our country from the brink of disaster, and make America great again.

Newt Gingrich.

Substance, Not Talking Points.

Sarah is very strong in the Tea Party, and since, (Quite surprisingly) the TP actually favors Romney by about 54% to 46% in the latest TP survey, she may have held her full blown support for Newt for that reason.

That is a long stretch since that survey only hit those levels in the last 2 weeks. I would like to know more about it though.

I don’t understand the shilly shallying about all this. Newt is closer to Palin’s way of thinking than any other Conservative running.... why she hasn’t endorsed Newt yet I will never know.

She has to make that move to clarify the situation and SOON!! If she waits to the last instant to endorse one of those other two, it won’t do either HER or THEM any good!

No, it isn't - just keep hoping, please don't give up. In my little universe any person of any party or persuasion that I have had the time to introduce to Newt properly and with some depth is now supporting him. Hands down, no going back. He has the message. We have to get the message out.

If you have time, you can make calls at the national phone banks... they help a lot and often change minds... Just 5-10 a day can make a BIG difference, and take less than an hour. The people of FR are very passionate and persuasive!

I know how you feel, and it is not to be minimized. But try not to give into it. Take a few days off, even a week, if need be, recharge, go on a politics or news fast, replenish yourself and then come back to the battlefield. We all have our thresholds. You're a psycho, man, don't go absolutely sane on us... :) Get a second wind...

RE "I blame Rush and other so called conservatives for not backing Gingrich." -- If they truly believed what they said when they say over and over, this is the most important election of our lifetime, America may never survive an Obama victory, then they would stop doing things the same way they have done every year before this... get out of their comfort zones, get on the battlefield, and put themselves on the line... risk a little for the republic.

This is no time for playing it safe and they are all doing just that. There is no leadership in the conservative media, which is one large common denominator in the conservative populace. While the dems and MSM march in lockstep. Sigh.

Thanks. I look for yours, CW, onyx, and VinL posts... I feel safe therein... :)

Turn off the media...go shopping or to the zoo....clear out your brain from all the retoric.....I did and it made a huge difference!

There's more to life then Politics and Trayvor Martin.

RE: RE: "I blame Rush and other so called conservatives for not backing Gingrich." -- If they truly believed what they said when they say over and over, this is the most important election of our lifetime, America may never survive an Obama victory, then they would stop doing things the same way they have done every year before this... get out of their comfort zones, get on the battlefield, and put themselves on the line... risk a little for the republic.
