Newt's talking about himself?
Ha-ha, very funny (not).
Thanks for bumping my thread.
See you later. It’s way past my bed time.
Such a great speaker and the only one that can give Obama a run for his money! I am #withNewt!
great thread ... keep up the good work ...
Did not mean to double post. Said I had a proxy error.
Excellent. It is what the candidates SHOULD be doing instead of devouring one another.

SPEAKER NEWT GINGRICH 2012 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE A BOLD LEADER
Newt Gingrich started his campaign by speaking about bold, positive ideas to solve the problems facing our country. Unfortunately, Governor Romney decided from the beginning of his campaign he was going to tear down any conservative candidate, which stood up in opposition to him.
Romney’s fingerprints are all over the attacks on Sarah Palin, Bachmann, Perry, Cain, Newt, and NOW Rick Santorum. It is very telling that the attacks are always against whoever is closest to Romney in the polls, on the eve of a caucus or a Primary, and nearly always of a salacious nature.
As soon as the perceived threat is eliminated, the accusations seem to fade into obscurity.
It’s pretty transparent. Thoughtful Republicans and Conservatives are starting to hate Romney nearly as much as they hate Obama.
“Its pretty transparent. Thoughtful Republicans and Conservatives are starting to hate Romney nearly as much as they hate Obama.”
I wouldn’t go THAT far...! But I HAVE grown to dislike him enough that I will not vote for him.
Ah...I know what you mean. “Hate” is a very strong word, and really not my nature.
I should have said “Dislike”. More in line with my own Christian principles.
“Thoughtful Republicans and Conservatives are starting to hate Romney nearly as much as they hate Obama.”
We have to understand Romney’s psyche mind. He’s running from president since he was elected governor of Massachusetts. The ONLY reason he wanted to be governor, was to use it as a catapult for building up a political career, in order to reach the White House. He sold his soul to Ted Kenedy and his payback was “Romneycare”, the template for Obamacare.
In the summer of 2003, barely six months into Romneys governorship, Robert White, his confidant, had huddled in Washington with political strategists Michael Murphy and Trent Wisecup and a top GOP lawyer, Benjamin Ginsberg, to ponder Romneys next move. At Ginsbergs law office near Georgetown, and later over steak in a private room at Mortons, the seeds for Romneys presidential campaign were planted. (Brian C. Mooney, Stephanie Ebbert and Scott Helman, Ambitions Grow And The Stances Shift, The Boston Globe, 6/30/07)
“After his failure to elect more Republican legislators in the 2004 campaign, Mitt Romney met with the Globe’s editorial board and made a surprising declaration: No longer could he put so much time into promoting his party. ‘From now on, it’s me-me-me,’ he said.” (Brian C. Mooney, Stephanie Ebbert and Scott Helman, “Ambitions Grow And the Stances Shift,” The Boston Globe, 6/30/07)
So this guy put in dozens of millions dollars from his own pocket (estimated at $40 million) in 2008, and ... lost to McCain.
Romney has continued to run for presiden ever since and was determined “to kill” any other candidate who took the lead in the race. After his defeat in South Carolina, his campaign chief of staff declared, before Florida primary: “It’s not about winning anymore, but about DESTROYING GINGRICH”. And that’s what they did in Florida with over 13,000 nasty, untruthful, pejorative ads.
Sarah Palin on the ongoing campaign, February 22:
This is exactly what Levin was talking about last evening...
so, Gingrich directing his speeches against zer0 on Tuesday, Levin talking about doing just that Tuesday evening. Only one conclusion I come to: Great minds think Alike!
I am from Massachusetts and now live in Florida, and I know exactly what you mean!
“We have to understand Romneys psyche mind. Hes running from president”
Of course, I meant:
We have to understand Romneys psyche mind. Hes running FOR president
Gingrich had directed his speeches against Obama long before the start of the primary season: Here for instance , in September 2011:
Newt Gingrich outlines his Jobs and Prosperity Plan at the Palmetto Freedom Forum
Don't need no Weatherman to see which way the wind blws.
"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"
--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."
"He [Bill Ayers] also writes about the Weathermen's sexual experimentation as they tried to 'smash monogamy.' The Weathermen were 'an army of lovers,' he says, and describes having had different sexual partners, including his best male friend."
Source: New York Times, September 11, 2001: "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen"
"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."
"What happens next bears watching closely, as does the response of the president, ex-Speaker Pelosi, and others on the left. Encouraged by leftists in the Democratic Party and funded by left-leaning nonprofit organizations and celebrity contributors, Occupy Wall Street may in time morph into something resembling the radical factions of the late 1960s and 1970s."
POSITIVE, POSITIVE, POSITIVE.
Newt wouldn’t let Hannity pummel him at the end about negative ads ‘working’ ~ he drilled here, drilled now with HIS message, ALL positive.
Good for him!
I hope, though, that by trying to put himself above the negative fray tonight between Romney and Santorum he doesn't just stand there like in the last debate.
Well, he knows it’s like NEWT’S LAST STAND tonight so I imagine he’ll take FULL advantage of every chance they give him. I just hope he gets to speak at all!
If he’s like he was on Hannity last night, he won’t waste a moment tonight, and won’t let them steamroll him.
NO ONE in America today articulates better the danger the country if facing and the absolute necessity to stop the liberal freedom-killer machine of the radical left, than NEWT GINGRICH.
Gingrich The Time to Act is NOW
The only one to vote For is NEWT.
Yes, YES, YES!!
What a link!
Newt’s the only LEADER in this race, the only one I can picture leading this nation of nations, the only one fearless enough to take on enemies at home and abroad.
Newt can win this if he’s willing to get tougher and meaner.
In hockey, there’s a famous piece of wisdom: “If you can’t beat them in the alley, you can’t beat them on the rink.”
A little judicious cruelty helps - think Gordy Howe.
“Newt can win this if hes willing to get tougher and meaner.”
He doesn’t need to be mean, but just to nail the truth in people’s heads, again and again and again, until they understand what is at stake :
“He doesnt need to be mean, but just to nail the truth in peoples heads, again and again and again, until they understand what is at stake...”
Okay; I’ll settle for that instead of mean. ;^)
From the interview transcript:
NEWT GINGRICH, R-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Barack Obama is the most dangerous president in modern American history. This administration has intellectually disarmed, it is morally disarmed, it is incapable of describing what threatens us.
The president wants to unilaterally weaken United States. He wants to cut the aid to Israel for its anti-ballistic missile defense, he refuses to take Iran seriously. We are in a world that is very dangerous, and I say this to those of you who represent the next generation because you are going to bear the consequences. We are really at risk some day in your lifetime of losing an American city.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HANNITY: Now Speaker Gingrich has also attacked the president’s energy policy calling it, quote, anti-American,” a message that is likely to connect with voters who are now suffering from sky-high gas prices.
And joining me now from the campaign trail, presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. Mr. Speaker, welcome back sir.
GINGRICH: It’s good to be with you and I thought that Governor Palin was exactly right at the end when she said, we ought to be taking on the Obama anti-American Energy Program , we should tie it back to National Security, which indicate why we’re for drill here, drill now, pay less. And why we think it’s essential both for our economy and for our security to get back to an American energy program that is designed to maximize our own production, the opposite of Obama.
HANNITY: Especially what you see happening now with Israel and Iran, and I’m going to get to that in a second. Let me go to what we’ve first played of you about saying about the president, the most dangerous president in modern American history. It’s got a lot of press. Explain.
GINGRICH: Well, this is a president who refuses to recognize who is trying to kill us. The FBI spends a year setting up somebody who is a Moroccan would-be terrorist who wants to bomb the capitol, but under the Obama administration rules, you can’t explain what motivates him. You can’t explain why he is inspired to do it, you can’t use radical Islamists, you can’t describe the network he belongs to. And I think there’s a desperate effort on the part of Obama and his administration to avoid reality. You now have the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt threatening to end the peace treaty with Israel, threatening to seek a nuclear weapon, you have the Pakistani’s, we now know for sure, protected bin Laden for years, and they didn’t arrest the people who were protecting them, they arrested the man who helped us find him. Again and again, you find that the Obama administration fails to meet the challenges. They are doing nothing effective about Iran. And if anything, they are undermining and cutting the aid to Israel to develop the anti-ballistic missile system that would protect Israel from Iranian and other rockets. So, look at his defense budget, which is going to weaken American defenses everywhere. It is going to lead to very substantial cuts in our capability, and I think it’s something we should all be very worried about.
HANNITY: Last question, this is going to be the last debate before Super Tuesday. Obviously, I would assume you want more debates. Are you concerned that this may be the last debate?
GINGRICH: We are going to find ways to communicate with the American people. I like debating. I think debating is good for the country. It gives us a chance to communicate without editing by the news media. It happens to be particularly good for me.
But if the other guys are afraid to debate, which makes you wonder how they would ever stand up to Barack Obama, that’s fine. I will find other ways to communicate to the American people with or without their debating.
It’s possible to ride this horse to the White House. It links to jobs, EPA, National Security, deficits etc.
But if the other guys are afraid to debate, which makes you wonder how they would ever stand up to Barack Obama, thats fine. I will find other ways to communicate to the American people with or without their debating.
Take it to this administration and to the chickens who won't debate, Mr. Speaker! The American people WILL hear your positive, solution based message for restoring this great nation!
Yep, he’ll have to be assertive and make his own stand.
This primary is all about shutting down and shutting out Newt Gingrich.
Why? Because Newt Gingrich feared, and therefore, hated.
He’s the only one who intends to change the disasterous course we’re on.
The others are go-along’s to get along’s.
Ping for later reading & use.
Amen to that!
I was listening to Rush for a bit and he played part of one of Reagan's 1983 speeches. In it, Reagan said the word "God" something like 8 times. He was magnificent in his defense of religion and optimitic (as usual) about our country. It was very uplifting. I truly didn't appreciate Reagan's speeches at the time (of course, I had a 3 year old and a newborn!)
If I were running for president, I run an ad with one of Reagan's speeches like this one and then come on and just say, "Yeah, what he said!" LOLOLL! Nobody said things better!
