Newt Gingrich Calls President Obama "Dreamer-in-Chief" at GOP Convention in Missoula
KFBB ^ | June 16, 2012 | KFBB News Team

Former U.S. House Speaker and one-time presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, spoke to a crowd of over 500 Republican supporters at a GOP Convention today in Missoula.

"We should in fact speak well of our dreamer-in-chief. Now he can't run the economy, he ca't defend the country, he doesn't understand the Constitution, he surrounds himself with radicals who are out of touch with reality, but those are minor things," says Gingrich.

"Just ask people, can they afford four more years of Barack Obama? I don't think ther's a town in this state that thinks that four more years of the pain level we've been in is a good idea," adds the former Speaker of the House.

Yeah, since Santorum always lead in the state count. Newt should have dropped out after Santorum won in Minnesota, Colorado and Missouri.

But he didn’t and because he stayed in we have Romney. Thanks Newt! Not forgetting that one anytime soon.

At least I can still support Virgil Goode, who is both pro life and pro traditional marriage unlike Romney.

“So, why the heck didn’t more people vote for Newt?”

He’s a smart man, but damn, he’s said and done so many stupid things.

1, supporting global warming and the warmists when it was trendy. No, Newt, where I come from you don’t fraternize with the enemy, and you don’t give them Oxygen.

2, supporting Obamacare in principle, “scrap it for my plan which *fixes* the problems”. No, Newt. You nuke it from orbit because it’s the only way to be sure.

3, his massive cuts to the military under clinton while increasing domestic spending at twice the rate of inflation. You want to talk about his accomplishments in ‘94, then why was he increasing domestic spending so fast? The only place he really cut back was the military which was 50 percent smaller on the budget when he left (after adjusting for inflation).

4, what he did with wife number one. We’re going to have him on the stand preaching about how it’s important to defend marriage? If the man couldn’t do it himself, then I don’t see how he can be an effective spokesperson for traditional marriage.

5, you have articles like this one:

http://caucuses.desmoinesregister.com/2011/11/28/iowa-christian-conservatives-split-on-gingrichs-right-to-life-record/

“Gingrich still supports abortions in the cases of rape, incest and danger to the life of the mother. “He would allow for the three exceptions,” campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond said Monday”

This was as of November 28th of last year. He goes on to say:

“But Gingrich has switched his position on federal funding. He now thinks the government should not ask taxpayers to pay for any abortions, Hammond said.”

Well, gee, howdy. Welcome on Board Newt. About damn time.

“questions whether they realize Gingrich has in the past spoken in favor of federal funding for embryonic stem cell research and abortions in certain cases.”

So, yes. You want to know why I didn’t get behind or support Newt?

This is why. Plain and simple. The man’s position changes in light of his presidential campaign were opportunistic and shallow.

You cannot know the admiration one has being feet away from Newt and Calista when they talked to our crowd, having your copy of To Renew Americasigned by both of them, shaking their hands and having Calista say, "We are in continuous touch with Sarah." It was quite an experience for me to see the bright lights (both Newt and Calista!) of the conservative movement.

Here is a little secret: Newt is in touch with the Romney campaign. Oars are in the Conservative waters.

I noted the drastic decline of our once wonderful country into Communism when I returned from VietNam.

Maybe it was because because my eyes had been opened while serving, or possibly because I had something to compare our once glorious country to and saw what we would become.

“So, why the heck didn’t more people vote for Newt? He has his baggage, but Romney has at least as much baggage.”

Because establishment folks like Matt Drudge and Ann Coulter decided to wage an information war on Newt Gingrich. Both have lost the respect of conservatives (well most... I’m sure Innovative loves both of them).

but hey... “3 CHEERS FOR ROMNEYCARE!” right?

The pioneers came to America for one reason (well two reasons)
1. Free land and nobody to prevent them from owning their own land without paying outrageous fees to Kings and Nobel men.
2. The right to practice the particular version of Christianity.
