Newt is far more conservative than Santorum
03/14/2012 | Entropy12

Posted on 03/14/2012 11:39:08 AM PDT by entropy12

Newt was the force behind Contract with America. That resulted in GOP win after 40 years of losses. Newt helped president Reagan balance budgets and create millions of new jobs, as Speaker of the House.

Newt has made pretty damning testimonies against AGW, specifically Cap and Trade.

Also see this interview.

So now you are going to join obummer and blame Bush. Santorum has won 10 states, willard 14, newt 2. So just go ahead and tell the voters their opinion does not matter. But by the end of june Santorum will have won more states than willard, and newt will have ONLY won two.

I can see why John King and all of his DNC buddies are ecstatic, in being able to support enthusiasm in the GOP, to help get Santorum nominated.

Santorum is who they are almost praying for to win. They even have an army of Democrats who are voting in every primary they can, for Santorum; Some very high percentages of them. (Up to 10% in some states)

They want Santorum to be the nominee for one obvious reason. What do you suppose that might be?

The Earth has gone through many cycles of heating and cooling, sea levels have been much higher and lower than they are now and it has gone on long before there was man and certainly modern man. As I recall Newt said man could contributing to the current warming but proof was inconclusive and that he was against any draconian measures by government to attempt to stop it. This is not a quote I’m paraphrasing from memory.

Santorum received an A+ rating from NRA, better than Ron Paul, or Newt, who got A(s), also good, but not as good as Rick’s A+.

==>NOT ONLY did NRA A+ rating Rick Santorum vote for our 2nd Amendment rights, but he fought to keep gun companies in the U.S.A.! Santorum gets things done, because he is a figher!

Just ask the NRA CEO:

‘“He [Rick Santorum] was the most effective advocate of bringing it [legislation to protect gun companies from frivolous lawsuits] to the floor and getting a vote scheduled. He used his influence to get it to the floor. Without that, we would have lost every American gun company.”

– Wayne LaPierre, CEO – National Rifle Association, October 25, 2006’

excerpt http://www.ricksantorum.com/defending-2nd-amendment-rights

As a country girl (who doesn’t live close to a Police Dept.), I’m especially glad Rick fights HARD for our Second Amendment rights!

Well you better hope Newt stays in it because the only thing standing between Rick Santorum and the Romney Deathstar ad campaign is Newt Gingrich.

The Obamaoid will BBQ Willard.. like an ant in a magnifying glass..
Negrodamus knows exactly how stupid most Americans are..
Willard may get 40 or even 30 percent of the vote..
Maybe less..

Newt doesn’t seem to be able to close the deal.

In fact, outside of SC, he doesn’t seem to be able to even open the conversation on closing the deal.

Not sure what the dynamic is, but it does not appear that he will be the nominee.

Old rivals team up on health care campaign
HIL & NEWT, IT’S A HOOT!.
BY JAMES GORDON MEEK DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON BUREAU
Thursday, May 12, 2005

WASHINGTON - Sen. Hillary Clinton joined with Republican ex-House Speaker Newt Gingrich yesterday to push health care reform - the most bizarre teaming since her husband became pals with the President he defeated.

Clinton (D-N.Y.) admitted it was an “odd mix” to appear publicly with the archconservative former GOP leader, who fought bitterly with former President Bill Clinton, but said they “have a lot in common” on the issue.

Each also is said to be eying a 2008 presidential bid. To some, their pairing means “the end is near, it’s a sign of the end times,” Hillary Clinton cracked. But the reality is, “I think it’s just a sign we can come together and solve a real problem for America.”

I think you need to tone down the rhetoric, a bit.

King David sure made his mistakes, did he not?

I voted Santorum, in KS, but I still have great respect for Newt, and you are not helping the Conservative cause by trashing him.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/01/rick-santorum-mr-bipartisan-compromise-and-mr-pro-wrestling/

Rick Santorum, Mr. Bipartisan Compromise – and Mr. Pro Wrestling?

Santorum sought to portray himself as someone who worked with Democratic colleagues to get things done.

“But to get things done, you’ve got to work together.”

He continued: “I teamed up with Joe Lieberman to make college more affordable for low income families. And Barbara Boxer and I wrote a law protecting open space [Google: Open space generally refers to undeveloped land or water area].”

“I’m even working with Hillary Clinton to limit inappropriate material for children’s video games,” Santorum said as the wrestlers all stop for a moment, seemingly stunned, “because it makes more sense to wrestle with America’s problems than with each other. I’m Rick Santorum and I approved this message.”

Point of clarification: Reagan never had a Republican majority in the House of Representatives. That and a period of balanced Federal budgets did not happen until after the 1994 election and the end of Democrat rule in the House. Clinton took credit for it, of course, but it was Gingrich and a fresh faced Conservative Congress who got it done.

Santorum got elected, more than once, in Union dominated Pennsylvania.

Newt has never won anything, by defeating a strong Democrat.

I like Newt, but this trash is ridiculous, that you are stacking on Rick.

NO Newt...... NO win..

It's a simple as this. With Newt and Santorum, you'll have most of the conservative base, lose a good chunk of the middle/middle-right leaning voters including an important chunk of the women's vote.

With Mitt, you get the middle of the roaders and smart lefties who know Obama is a disaster but lose good chunks of the south and conservative base.

It's a loser any way around.

True conservatives have endorsed Newt. Palin, Fred Thompson, JC Watts(I think),
Chuck Norris, and many more I can’t think of right now. Compare that list to who has endorsed Mitt and Santorum.

PF, of course I watched CNN with a careful eye. But lo I discovered they do not seem to be blaring a bias between the republicans, or if I were to detect one, and this was more with Woof and Andie, it would be a slight Romney interest.

I saw no satorum bias, and about 90% less bias overall than fox. As well as faster results, better coverage, and fascinating graphics like the delegate map that you can play with.

"True conservatives have endorsed Newt....Chuck Norris"

I laugh every time I see that trumpeted. Chuck Norris played in movie titled, "Delta Force."

Jerry Boykin was a founding member, and later commander of the real Delta Force.

Jerry Boykin scrubs his commode with Chuck Norris's beard.

Jerry Boykin endorsed Santorum.

Newt is NOT King David and I do not respect him at all.

You think MY rhetoric is bad, just wait until all his Bimbos come out of hiding! Geez, he has as many as bj...there is a Lewinsky around every corner.

He is not conservative! He uses the term and the conservative people in his pursuit of power. He has no values, except self promotion. In fact he has promoted many of Obama’s ideas. Check him out. Don’t just listen to what he has said TODAY, LOOK at what he has actually done.

Gingrich said that the Lautenberg gun ban was “a very reasonable position.” And he has supported various gun bans.

He promoted manditory health insurance back in 2007-—part of Obamacare, for which many states have sued the feds as being unconstitutional...Newt thought it was the duty of Americans to buy insurance and that they were “cheating their neighbors” if they weren’t forced to buy it!

He was for cap and trade, promoted it with Pelosi; in fact Gingrich co-sponsored 418 bills in Congress with Pelosi ...oh yes, I know he said he was “sorry”....just like he was “sorry” for cheating on his 2 wives and asking one of them to have a threesome with his new girlfriend...yeah, he is “sorry” alright.

He supports amnesty for illegals and made MILLIONS lobbying for Freddie Mac.

He went around the country with Al Sharpton and promoted OBAMA’s education ‘reform’

I do not apologise for speaking the truth. It has to be faced.

Right. He gave the Rinos a run for their money and took over the party and the country’s agenda for a while. Conservatives turned against him because he was kinda slutty, if you know what I mean. But we erred in that. They are all pretty much sluts in one way or another and Newt was our slut. :)
