That was a great speech. I want him to push on going back to the Moon. The mocking comments Gingrich received from pundits like Krauthammer and politicians like Romney symbolizes everything that is wrong with the Republican Party.

I agree. Newt delivered a terrific speech and solidified the run he is prepared to make in the fall - I'm excited!!!!!!!

NEWT, NEWT, NEWT, NEWT !!!!

So she can obnoxiously “clap” in the right mic!
Hearing sensitive here , audio sucked and THAT Callista clap was really annoying!
Other than that , Newt looked ready to drop when they were escorting him out, either that or there is some extraneous “outside” threat.

we need to ad Bella and the Santorum family to our prayers. Had wondered earlier if that was why he had gone home for the week end. His wife was not at the debate but had already headed north.

Dear Josh,

We do the math and we go to war. It is not a patriotic gesture for “good men to do nothing” by casting a mathmatical vote that effectively in Florida is a clear and present danger to the ONE man who can stop him.

This has absolutely nothing to do with me trying to win or lose your vote, but your conscience sees the math for Florida. You will follow your conscience to the extent that it is informed of what is at stake. God be with you, and you don’t worry about the “way to win them over”. Just do your math and pull the lever if you are in Florida. You can be cranky in some other state over the santorum vote, but do right in Florida what IS RIGHT.

Yes, Santorum is wonderful man who has known family heartache and he is easy to pray for, especially now that we are informed the daughter is staying in the hospital tonight. God be with him and each and all of us.

He does have some Churchill in him.


"Churchillian fortitude: When Gingrich’s campaign was faltering, in single digits, most would have quit. He did not. He persevered. We need a president who will not waver. We have had enough of the Neville Chamberlain complex in top leadership. We must have a Winston Churchill. We face such serious dual enemies: the radical left secularist and radical Islam, both with the capability of destroying historic America. The left has almost succeeded. And without strong leadership, both will. Jeffrey Lord wrote in the November 15, 2011 issue of American Spectator a thought provoking comparison of 1930s Britain with Churchill’s rise to contemporary America with the the rise of Gingrich. Both are flawed, as are all people. But Churchill was needed by Britain, just as American now needs Gingrich’s leadership."
-- Rev Jim Garlow

I remember it very well also. 14 at the time. We were camping with our family at Douthat State Park in Virginia. There was a wash station in our camp area and it had electric. Someone, one of the other campers, plugged in a TV and everyone gathered around to watch. My brother and I had a 8X telescope and thought that just maybe we could watch that way as well. :)

Newt’s already saving us money, he won’t need any press secretary or staff! The WH press pool is going to HATE this.

I’m still in shock at what I just witnessed. I feel like it’s 1775.

The oil patch in SE NM and west Texas — booming like crazy. Looking for people that are willing to work (lots of young folks aren’t) but if you have a drug habit or conviction forget about it — 20 to 25% of applicants can’t pass a drug test. Hotels are full — companies rent blocks of rooms to house their employees. RV parks are full also with trailers for workers. Some bring their families.

Wonderful night. I’ll pass on the thanks to dad.

My dad sent me to business school when I was ten to learn to type. He called them up enrolled me, they didn’t know I was ten till class started. Had to sit on a big book.

I’m not nearly as fast as my mom was, she put him through law school and was his secretary.....But it certainly is much easier on a computer with spell check and no carbon paper.

We are STANDING on the edge of history next to a truly great man....Pray hard but work even harder to fight evil and get him elected.

CSPAN will show Newt on the trail tomorrow and also Romney. Romney will be his same disgusting self, stammering and stuttering and saying “I don’t know where my money is - I don’t know what is in my ads”.
“Romney, the “don’t know” liberal candidate.”

Sorry if that bothers YOU , pal.
Maybe what Newt was hearing is that Bella Santorum was being taken to Children’s Hospital, he looked upset to me.

Good Lord, that’s ALOT of Assumptions friend,

Geez.

Romney is up on C-SPAN right now, and he again repeated the lies about Gingrich being fined for ethics violations and resigning in disgrace.

Romney has no ethics.

Please, Santorum supporters in Florida, vote for Gingrich on Tuesday. Please. Don't let Romney win Florida.

Please don’t get me wrong, RitaOK. I’m all in for Newt. I know how much he needs Santorum supporters to vote for him in Florida. But I know some Santorum supporters, and they will not be persuaded to vote for Newt to stop Romney by dissing their guy or dissing them.

Newt has been careful not to trash any other GOP candidate except Romney (who deserves it). I think, in part, that this is what helped him win Rick Perry’s endorsement. And it’s about to pay off for Newt big time, as some of Perry’s high-dollar contributors have been in discussions with the Gingrich camp about making donations to Newt’s campaign.

It’s a cliche, but it still rings true. You can attract many more flies with honey than you can with vinegar.

Just watch. Now Mitt’s supporters will tell Santorum supporters that some guy on FR called them “a bunch of flies.”

;-)

Thanks,

- JP

-- Romney is up on C-SPAN right now, and he again repeated the lies about Gingrich being fined for ethics violations and resigning in disgrace. --

Aside from that - and not to diminish it, that alone disqualifies Romney ion my book - Romney's s\"substantive" banter is generic. He has no specifics. On health care, he contradicts himself, by saying he's going to return health care decisions "to the people" (I don't think he says that, exactly), while he defends the model he put in place in Massachusetts.

What really blows my mind is how much of the weight of the GOP is standing behind the empty suit liar.

Something was definitely very odd about the placement of the microphones. It sounded like there were very few people clapping in the audience most of the time, but someone's (Callista's?) very slow and loud clap was heard over all others every time. I agree that she should sit down after being introduced.

C-Span is so leftist. Have you ever noticed how there just happens to be a handy microphone right near any protesters at a Republican event? Tonight they never showed the audience, not even when they sang Happy Birthday to someone in it. It must have been a big audience which C-Span does not want Americans to know about.

Newt Gingrich needs to hire a health coach and then do what he can to improve his stamina. Campaigning for President is a long exhausting experience for anyone. He's almost 70, extremely overweight and seemingly out of shape. He gave a great speech tonight. I hope he doesn't collapse.

Bella has lived several years past her expected life expectancy. Rick wife was a neo-natal nurse. So they took the baby home “to die” but because of the love and care she has lived. A very fragile life yes, but surrounded by her loving parents and brothers and sisters.....

No more letters or email folks...It time for prayers for this family.

"What’s wrong with his daughter? This must be the disabled child he spoke about on Thursday."

His daughter Bella has a genetic condition that is worse than Downs syndrome. She was not expected to live but a couple of weeks after birth. She is now 3 yrs old. They also had another child that died at birth. So sad.

You might be better off going to his facebook pages, and posting sincere comments there, so supporters can read them and understand, and maybe have their hearts changed regarding their vote. And pass those page addresses to others you know. I have found people of FR to be very persuasive in any number of ways... I have that on my to-do list tomorrow...

Well said. I especially teared up at his conclusion, when he said "I pledge my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor." I teared up because I believe him. We've been given the seed of a blessing tonight, and it was planted in fertile soil. Will it be allowed to bloom? We may not get another chance.
