Newt explains what the Republicans need to do to beat Obama
The Right Scoop ^ | 11/30/2012 | The Right Scoop via Fox News

Posted on 11/30/2012 11:43:53 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather

Forget last night’s interview. Newt was much better tonight on Hannity and laid out exactly what Republicans need to do and explained why they have much more power than they realize. The interview begins at the 4:00 mark.

Ya gotta get the base to care. It’s not enough to get a bigger base according to passive polling. If it was, Mitt would have mopped the floor with Barack.

Nope, forget Dede & Castle. Let us find more candidates like Todd Akin, Dick Mourdock, Doug Hoffmann, Ken Buck, Joe Miller etc. They will enhance the conservative agenda in Congress.

Dede was a candidate that Gingrich tried to force into office. Then he lashed out as conservatives when they didn’t obey him.

Excuse me, but "the base" is Conservative, and DID NOT support Romney.
Only 36% of Republicans voted FOR Romney, because 64% of Republicans HATE "Establishment Republicans".
Had a REAL Conservative won our Primary and not been SAVAGED by Romney, Obama would NOT be in Office.

Wow! I wish Newt Gingrich was president. He is completely correct. The rats have a heck of a negotiating position - - they don't have to bring anything to the table.

Have you noticed how the attention of the Democrat "mainstream" news media is focused entirely on what the Republicans will "give up"; what the Republicans will cave on? (Naturally, the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms are pushing the GOP to commit party suicide by agreeing to otherwise thoroughly meaningless, drop-in-the-bucket tax hikes.) But what, exactly, are the rats bringing to the table? An agreement to "slow the rate of spending growth"? Wow, big whup.

Meanwhile, NOT... ONE... WORD... from the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms about how much of the socialist welfare state Ubama and the rats are willing to give up to get a deal done. No matter WHAT the Republicans do, the newsrooms will make sure they get full blame for both the mean spending "cuts" AND the tax hikes! The rats have nothing at stake! What's to "negotiate"?

Talk about a lose/lose situation for the GOP.... Whew.

Absolutely the best thing that can happen is to go over the "fiscal cliff". The Republicans at this point should be strategizing how to make sure Ubanga and the rats catch as much of the blame as possible. The PR game starts YESTERDAY for the Republicans, and they are already playing catch-up - - the rats have been working on it all along. And now is the time for Republicans to go nuclear - - I mean, Ubanga is taking off for vacation in Hawaii while the nation is on the brink of economic calamity? That's some "leadership" there...

By the way, an added bonus for refusing to cave to the rats to strike a deal is that the GOP House will then get the chance to wrap the upcoming debt ceiling debate around Ubanga's neck. They can, each and every Republican, take to the House floor and recite word for word, Ubama's own position on the debt ceiling:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a Sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. ...Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that 'the buck stops here'. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and Grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
- SENATOR BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA (MARCH 2006)

Introduce lots of smaller pieces of legislature to show the democrats as obstructionists in 2014.

Newt even reminisced about “Tip” O’Neill and Ronald Reagan on this point...

And Hannity agreed with him.

That was the major point made during the interview, discussed at good length.

Newt would be right (( IF )) this wasn’t true...

For two years(2010) the House republicans have financed every single program of Obama..
They did it on purpose knowing they could cut him off at the knees financially.. BUT DIDN’T...

The republican congress have supported Obama NOT opposed him..
To think anything has changed you must be a moron..

There is only one problem: the GUTLESS Republicans in both houses do not have the will or the tenacity necessary to do the right thing. They will instead play “politics” and “compromise” with Obamessiah and the democRATS because the overwhelming majority of Republicans in both houses are corrupt and care more about their position and power than they do the country or defending the Constitution of the United States.

We must stop this eliminating those we support if they have done something we don't like. Newt laid out a very good sensible plan to use to deal with these evil Dims and Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

We are NEVER going to find someone we agree with 100% of the time. Go, Newt!!

Newt probably didn't like Dede any better than anyone else did but Newt understands the need to create Republican majorities and Dede had an R after her name and was still preferable to the Dim.

Granted, it was a bitter pill to swallow but I understand it. This is the way sausage is made.

I felt buoyed by listening to Newt. Obviously, he had put a lot of thought into his ideas. We have nothing to lose.

I heard part of Obama's speech and he was telling how if the Republicans do not do it his way, that taxes on the middle class will be going up over $2,000 dollars per year. It was simple and easy to understand so he already had the upper hand.

Not going to argue with you because you're right but that doesn't change the facts at the time. There are two problems with holding a grudge against Newt for supporting Dede. She was a Republican and counted toward a Republican majority and besides even if Newt screwed up royally, we cannot continue to discard everyone because they do something we don't like. This is why we have Barack HUSSEIN Obama as our president.

We are ALL flawed human beings and no one is perfect. We must stop eating our own.

My thought too. Newt should take over the RNC; maybe then they’d learn some ‘street smart’ tactics and fight fire with fire.

I could be wrong and frequently am, I believe that the Speaker of the House can be a non-member, I’m going to contact my congressman and urge him to support former Speaker Newt Gingrich to replace Boehner as the new Speaker.

Newt is a fighter for principles. And he is the smart one of the Republican leaders. Even though he had baggage, I would have voted for him based on his accomplishments and conservative ideas(like the highly successful Contract with America). Romney had baggage and I would not vote for him.
Blaming voters for bad candidates like Romney is very counter productive. Real leaders convince people to support them. Phonies get mad at people who do not vote their way.
In a large part, Mr. Obama and his successes were made by the Republican Party, in their choice of losing candidates and continuous funding and support of Liberal Democrat Obama policies. Of course, there were several photo op votes that meant nothing except fodder for ad for the home folks, but when the chips were on the line, the Republicans folded.
There may not be a national Republican party in 2016.
Romney seems to be making a few moves to run .

It's all over the place. One Florida congressman even read it on the House floor during the last debt ceiling debate. Just google "Obama Debt Ceiling Quote". Note: The quote is actually two sentences taken from a longer speech. Regardless, it remains completely in the context Ubama intended.

Now he says he's "sorry" he made that speech.
Yeah, that sick scumbag, the African communist, is sorry, alright.

What you may endear to yourself (hey by the way, recent news from Uganda should cheer you, they’re back to stoning gays, even those who only give sidelong curious looks let alone sodomy — you will thrill to hear about the real witch hunt going on, in the name of the bible no less) as “the base” isn’t what I meant by “Mitt’s base” meaning those people eligible to vote who passively polled, in private polls, as preferring Mitt to Obama. “Mitt’s base” was larger than “Obama’s base” as analogously defined. However, passive preferences did not transfer to active attendance at polls. Even Democrats are marveling that Mitt did not put more energy into his campaign, which would have gotten more of that passive base off its duffs.

Anyhow I know you clearly despise Mitt, but facts are facts.

Newt made a lot more "mistakes" besides backing Scozzy over Hoffman. In fact, he didn't get Conservative religion until he saw an opening after Cain folded. But a lot of folks around here with short memories did not want to here about it at the time, and instead began priasing him as the savior of the GOP.

He was a darling for the willfully blind at FR. Those of us who knew his entire record and understood that Newt was only out for Newt were shouted down, ridiculed, and threatened with banning for refusal to disregard his couch-sitting antics before he began pretending to be a Conservative. He may have been once, but nothing in his record from 1999-2010 suggest that he stayed that way.

willfully blind at FR
Willfully blind is harping on issues that Newt owned up to as being wrong and ignoring that fact. For example Newt said he was wrong to sit with Pelosi and changed his mind on climate. Newt, within days withdrew his comment about "right wing social engineering".

And I mean really... your link "Gingrich says Palin will not be the future GOP leader", when Gingrich himself was planning to run for President, only shows how willfully blind the few who suffer Gingrich Derangement Syndrome are while they desperately build their spamming links posts against the man.

You can and will remain willfully blind, merrily dancing to the tune of the MSM. But many of us are aware of the full picture such as Jim Robinson endorsing Gingrich for President and what his record in power is: 1998 ACU Ratings: Gingrich 100%, Paul 88%, Santorum 84% [last year all 3 were in Congress]
