    COEUR D’ALENE— GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich followed the campaign trail to the Inland Northwest Thursday to address voters. Voters are just one week away from picking who they want as a Republican presidential candidate. Gingrich talked about hot topics in front of hundreds of people in North Idaho. He focused on gas prices, national security, and the differences between Democrats and Republicans. He said the main goal is for the GOP party to beat President Barack Obama in the next election. Gingrich is scheduled to head to Western Washington Friday to meet with supporters in Olympia.

    Mitt Romney this week released “version 2.0” of his tax plan. It and those of his GOP primary competitors stands in contrast to the tax plan offered by President Barack Obama in his FY 2013 budget. In this budget, he announced that he is for tripling the tax rate on dividends, raising the tax rate at which the majority of small employer profits face taxation, hiking the capital gains rate, bringing the death tax to nearly half of an estate’s value, and raising taxes to hurt energy consumers. The list of tax hikes in the Obama budget is frankly staggering....

  • Gingrich Pledges $2.50 Gas, Obama: 'It's Easy to Make Phony Promises'

    Obama sought to deflect growing Republican attacks over rising prices at the pump, blaming recent increases on a mix of factors beyond his control, including tensions with Iran, hot demand from China, India and other emerging economies, and Wall Street speculators taking advantage of the uncertainty. President Barack Obama hit back on Thursday at election-year Republican criticism of his energy policies, offering a staunch defense of his attempts to wean Americans off foreign oil and saying there is no "silver bullet" for high gasoline prices. U.S. gasoline prices have jumped nearly 9 cents in the past week to an average...
  • Newt Gingrich rips President Obama’s apology to Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai over Koran burnings

    ..... "There seems to be nothing that radical Islamists can do to get Barack Obama's attention in a negative way and he is consistently apologizing to people who do not deserve the apology of the President of the United States period," the ex-House Speaker said while stumping in Washington state. The torching of the Islamic holy books has triggered deadly protests this week. Two U.S. troops were among those killed in retaliation for the burnings. Obama issued the formal apology in a letter, after charred copies of the Koran were found in a garbage pit on a U.S. air base...

    Focus on issues has Newt returning to form in the role of Republican elder statesman... As Rush Limbaugh observed a couple days ago, don't be too surprised if you now witness a third comeback for Newt- and that was before Santorum tanked in Phoenix. The underlying logic? There hadn't been a GOP debate in a month... and he suspected Gingrich would be hitting his stride once they resumed. And ole Rush might have been on to something: the Former House Speaker really delivered on Tuesday night in Mesa AZ, bringing most of the night's best lines while drawing a lot of fresh...

    I posted last night and again this morning that Rick Santorum had a terrible debate. But it’s fair also to point out that many of the shots Romney scored on Santorum were cheap shots, as pointed out by George Neumayr at The American Spectator (h/t reader OccamsrazorX): "Romney, at his most hypocritical, labored hard to present himself as more socially conservative than Santorum, noting that Rick had voted for Planned Parenthood funding. Astonishingly, Santorum missed his chance at a return upper cut. Why didn’t he mention that Romney once gave money to Planned Parenthood from his own pocket? Why didn’t...

    As I explained in my video - in Mesa Arizona the Mormon audience began by booing Santorum as soon as he MENTIONED Romneycare. I have news for these Romney followers - they are not going to be the studio audience in the general election when Obama thanks Romney for providing the - blueprint. Also, notice that in his retort, Romney himself calls his albatross "Romneycare", laugh out loud. As I also pointed out, take out all of the boo tracks, laugh tracks and applause tracks provided by this Romney fan club - and you have an ENTIRELY different debate. The...

Last week, State Rep.

The bill would allow law enforcement...

    Newt Gingrich emerged Thursday as the first Republican White House hopeful to criticize President Barack Obama for apologizing after Muslim holy books containing extremist language were burned by NATO soldiers. Gingrich told a crowd in Spokane, Washington, "President Obama surrendered twice today and I think that deserves to be brought to the country's attention." **snip** He continued, "The president apologized for the burning, but I haven't seen the president demand that the government of Afghanistan apologize for the killing of two young Americans." Gingrich said Obama was ignoring the treat of radical Muslims intent on harming Americans. "There seems to...

    The White House today defended President Obama’s decision to apologize for the recent incident of Koran burning at a U.S. airbase in Afghanistan, saying it was “wholly appropriate” given the “understandable sensitivities” to the issue. “The error was inadvertent,” Obama wrote in a letter to his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai, according to Karzai’s office. “I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible.” Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, however, said it was “an outrage” for the president to issue an apology on the same day two U.S. troops were...

    GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is expressing outrage over a U.S. apology to Afghan authorities for burned Qurans on a military base. Gingrich lashed out Thursday at the Obama administration for the formal apology. Copies of the Muslim holy book were found burned in a garbage pit on a U.S. air field. President Barack Obama’s apology was announced Thursday morning. A few hours later, news organizations reported that an Afghan soldier had killed two U.S. troops and wounded others in retaliation for the Quran burning. Campaigning in Washington state, Gingrich says Afghan President Hamid Karzi owes the U.S. an apology...

    KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, speaking at an eastern Washington campaign stop Thursday, pledged to open federal lands and offshore areas to oil drilling in an attempt to make the United States energy independent. Several hundred people turned out to hear Gingrich speak in Kennewick, one of south-central Washington's Tri-Cities that are home to the nation's most contaminated nuclear site and thousands of jobs in agriculture. As he has in recent days, Gingrich focused most of his speech on rising gas prices and energy development. He said that, if elected, he would immediately approve a proposed...

    Newt Gingrich didn’t have a game-changing moment in Wednesday night’s Arizona debate. But the former House speaker’s newest approach to the Republican presidential race — staying above the fray, avoiding attacks and focusing on the issues — proved to be a winner for him anyway. “Newt’s last two outings were disjointed and low-energy,” said Rick Wilson, a GOP strategist who is unaligned in the presidential race. “Tonight was markedly better.” But Gingrich had more ground to make up than the other candidates in Wednesday’s debate. More than his GOP rivals, Gingrich has used his debate performances — often marked by...

    The mainstream media enjoys analyzing how the candidates performed but rarely replays the meat of an answer given by a candidate. The substance of what Newt Gingrich said in reply to the questions asked by CNNs John King will help Oklahoma voters make their decision of who to vote for in the March 6th Presidential Primary. The first question asked was regarding the candidates’ plan to bring down the national debt. Gingrich’s response was to create jobs and spur economic growth. He also suggested that the Federal government open federal land and offshore areas to energy production. He also mentioned...
