Scott Hennen Show- You Tube ^ | 2-29-12 | Bachmann

"Newt is not afraid. He is not afraid to stand up and be different. He’s not afraid to stand up and be bold. "

Video at link.


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: gingrich
"Newt Gingrich is the only candidate still in the field who can clearly take on Barack Obama in one-on-one debate and cut through the Obama rhetoric and mystique with hard facts and plain logic. Nor is this just a matter of having a gift of gab. Gingrich has a far deeper grasp of both the policies and the politics than the other Republican candidates." Thomas Sowell

Newt will rise again.

Michelle seemed like a great conservative. It’s sad she’s selling out to the Romney/Gingrich establishment. Maybe Minnesota will get some money out of the Muslim Moon Base.

Yeh, you might be right, Nick. Most of them sell out. I guess she merely decided to take one for the team.

I’d rather have her support than radical left wingers like Joe DiSano and Tony Trupiano that supported Santorum in Michigan.

Santorum's (and most Republican's) willingness to sell out is pretty hideous. But it's hardly a defense for Gingrich, who was in the position to force these people into, "taking one for the team." Remember, he faced rebellion, after he tried to strong arm the GOP into abandoning the Contract With America in 1996, because he believed conservatism was a losing proposition.

The $750 trillion taxpayer-funded Moonbase, run by Obama's sharia-compliant NASA takes the case. The government program to dwarf all other government. I'm sure U.S.taxpayers will be proud they made the Moon the 58th Muslim state. Moonraker was a terrible movie, but Gingrich used it as a policy statement.

Of course, maybe Gingrich's long-awaited environmental bill will be an even government program. Sure, Santorum isn't great, but I'm not voting for someone green on the outside and red on the inside like Gingrich.

You must be living in an alternate dimension. Even the Moon Base stuff is total nonsense. Newt never advocated a NASA run government program to colonize the moon. He specifically discussed his long-running plan, something on the table for years, to encourage private business involvement and investment in space exploration and moon colonization.

All true.

But, precisely because of this, will Obama debate him?

Why should he?

I don’t know what planet you have been living on but you should come back down to Earth. You are so wrong regarding Newt.

I agree with both Dr Sowell and Michelle regarding Newt. He stands the best chance of beating Obama. He also makes RINOs wet their pants. GO NEWT GO!

***********

You’re pulling my leg, right? Funny one, Nick.

Perhaps, however, you can answer a question for me. Over the course of this primary season, I’ve seen many threads promoting other candidates that I don’t support. I’ve never entered those threads for the purpose of demeaning that candidate.

This thread merely states that Cong. Bachmann said something positive about Gingrich. Why do you feel the need to interpose negative remarks on the thread, and thereby denigrate Newt? I’m just curious. Thanks

Yeh, he will. And if that occurred, they should make it “pay per view” and apply it to the national debate.

A lady who works for me asked me the same question yesterday. Thanks to the First Amendment, even the defacto collective Pravda in this country will not be able to withstand the pressure from Newt, Limbaugh, and the rest of the Right. We will simply call Obama a coward. Call me crazy, but I do not think that the states will elect a now known coward.

Cheer up and Go Newt!

Yeh, he will

I ask again, "Why should he"?

If he's a certain loser -- as I would agree he probably is -- it would be a simple matter to play a delay game. Obfuscate the terms of the debate, its location, its timing, the format, the moderators, the context, etc.

The MSM would never question him in this regard. Instead, they would blame the Gingrich campaign -- for being "obstructive", "contentious", "uncooperative", etc.

Sure, our side would call him on it. They would taunt him and mock him. But would it cost Obama a single vote?

I think not.

If recollection serves, the last president able to avoid debate was Nixon with McGovern- But, Nixon knew that he had an insurmountable lead- and he used the excuse that it was a time of war. So, you’re right, to the extent that it doesn’t hurt Obama in the polls, he could avoid it.

In fall 2012, the economy could be great and all could be well internationally and people could be very happy with Obama’s America- and therefore, he could sidestep a debate.

But, if conditions are not as described, he can’t be perceived as the president afraid to confront his challenger- no matter how he or the media spins it.

IMO, there will be debates.

Could be. I remain skeptical, however -- especially if the GOP nominee is Gingrich.

Yep the Anti Newt are getting Rampant on FR lately.

Not sure If their Pro Mittens, Saint Rick, or RuPaul.

But Newt is scaring the hell out of somebody.

I do know who the Dems are Scared off. NEWT.

The Dems are now talking about Tapping the strategic petroleum reserve and begging Saudi Arabia to open the taps on pumping more oil. Why you think this is.

There scared as hell about Newt 2.50 gas.

It's simple. I'm a conservative. For some reason, conservatives are letting there their understandable fear of Romney being the nominee delude them into supporting a socialist wack job. Sorry, no sale. Just because Romney is bad, doesn't mean I'm going ignore how bad Gingrich is. It' stupid, because Gingrich has an intense hatred for conservatives. Example: After he endorsed (ACORN-endorsed) Dede Scozzafava and went on many radio shows to support her, he was criticized by conservatives for it. He made a post on his web site that told his true feelings about conservatives known, and basically declaring jihad against them. He took it off his web site, but I am sure you can find it. Or better yet, ask him to be full disclosure and release it.

Even in May 2011, he couldn't resist attacking conservatives for, "right wing social engineering." I have seen people try to spin this one, but it's embarrassing. Conservative wouldn't even think of that. Why try to shiv conservatism to the media?

I can think of 100 reasons to criticize Romney from the right. Gingrich attacked him from the left, stealing anti-capitalist rhetoric straight from Mother Jones magazine. (In the 2000s, Gingrich's allies have been Al Sharpton, Barney Frank, and Nancy Pelosi. I haven't heard of him allying with ANY conservatives)

The question is, VinL, why would you vote for someone who hates you?

One more thing: Why the need to bash Ronald Reagan. Even Obama is careful to only say nice things about Reagan. I have heard more bashing of Reagan by Gingrich supporters in the last 2 months, than I have heard the entire time since 1998 on Free Republic?

*************

I didn’t know Newt hated me, he never told me!

But, my personal feelings aside, if Newt is the “socialist” you portray him to be- why did he mastermind the overthrow of Dem speaker Wright and the 40 year dominion of the Dems in 1994???

Or-was that like a clever ruse on his part, to make me think that he was a conservative— only to pop up 17 years later- become President- so he could takeover the country, and lead us the rest of the way to communism?

I have no explanation for that Nick- I guess a lot of Newt supporters (if not the majority) really hate Ronald Reagan- They must be closet socialists, just like Newt.

But, please know, I have immense respect for Pres. Reagan, and have not made one utterance against him; honest Nick, not one word.

Newt has already announced he will simply appear everywhere Obama does an hour later ... and do a point by point tear down of everything Obama said in his speech. After a few stops like this where Newt always gets the last word, Obama will stop running away from debates.

I support Gingrich and didn’t quite see post 10 have anything to do with Reagan. Maybe a little background helps on a public forum.

Great words what she has shared. Newt (American) values, Obama ( foreign country) values. With Newt, we will get it right. I can’t wait to watch him side by side to OBama. Newt will be orbits ahead of the Obama.

And which networks will cover Newt's rebuttal?
