    I finally get it! I finally understand how we Americans elected Barack Obama to be President in 2008. We voted for someone who was radical, inexperienced and incompetent Now the GOP citizens are ignoring the substantive propossals from Gingrich on energy, debt, education, and now national security, in favor of Santorum's pious preaching and in favor of Romney's incoherent pep talks. Go to Newt.Org and see Gingrich's assessment of Obama's open mike security giveaway to the Russians. I choose Substance over Form. Vote Newt.

    HOCKESSIN, Delaware - In a sign that his campaign is in need of fresh funds, Newt Gingrich on Monday began charging $50 to have a photograph taken with him following a campaign speech to Republican County groups here in the northernmost part of the state. It was the first time the former House speaker has charged those attending one of his public speaking events to pose for a photograph with him. Lately, a member of his campaign staff has been snapping photographs of any interested attendee and later posting them online at the campaign's website, newt.org. On Monday night, those...

    Newt Gingrich, the first candidate to campaign in Delaware, came here Monday night pushing his $2.50-per-gallon-of-gas energy plan and jabbing President Obama about comments caught on an open microphone with outgoing Russian President Dmitri Medvedev. Gingrich said that Obama’s suggestion that he would have more flexibility to negotiate on nuclear arms after winning the 2012 election, was “destructive of American interests.” “This is a president who is amazingly destructive of American interests, something by the way of which we were reminded of today, when he didn’t know there was an open microphone,” he said to meeting of local Republican groups....

    Newt Gingrich confirms with this statement what everybody already knew: His purpose in the race at this point is less to secure the nomination himself (or even to spearhead a movement, like Ron Paul) than to thwart Mitt Romney. Same ol’ story: Gingrich told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that he won’t get out of the race until former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney (R) – who Gingrich described as “the weakest frontrunner in modern times” — secures the 1,144 delegates necessary to clinch the GOP nomination.“I think the morning that he gets 1,144 that are locked down, then I think he can...

    Newt Gingrich insisted Monday that he would continue in the fight for the Republican presidential nomination until Mitt Romney secured the 1,144 delegates necessary to clinch the nomination, saying 'a whole new conversation' would occur if the frontrunner was also unable to hit the necessary total. "I think the morning that he gets 1,144 that are locked down, then I think he claim to be the nominee. But until then, he's not the nominee," Gingrich said on CNN. "Remember, I'm from Atlanta, where we were ahead by 10.5 games last year with only 28 games to go, and the Cardinals...

    With the Republican presidential nomination almost in his grasp, Mitt Romney rolled out a notable endorsement last week, from a former governor of Florida. It was notable not because it's likely to change the mind of any voter, but because it required the Romney campaign to utter a four-letter word it has been loath to use: Bush.The presidential candidates never tire of reminding us theirs is the party of Ronald Reagan and Abraham Lincoln. That the modern version is, more than anything else, the party of Bush is something they prefer to omit.The last two Republican presidents were members of...

    President Obama's prodigious flip-flop on the efficacy his signature health care law's individual mandate sits atop the list of his numerous "Etch-a-Sketch"-style political gyrations. During the 2008 campaign, he vehemently opposed Hillary Clinton's reform plan because of its inclusion of mandate. Four years later, his administration is in court defending the precise policy he opposed. This was not a minor or superficial distinction between Obama and his former Democratic rival; it was one of the brightest lines Obama drew to separate the two campaigns' (relatively similar) approaches to government expansionism. As this Buzzfeed video demonstrates, this was a point candidate...

    Newt Gingrich will campaign in Raleigh this week – the first GOP candidate to visit North Carolina since the state’s May 8 primary became a player in the presidential contest. Gingrich is expected to spend all day Wednesday making appearances in Raleigh, meeting with voters and receiving the endorsements of local lawmakers. The details for the events are not yet available, said Marc Rotterman with Rotterman & Associates, a local political firm consulting for the Gingrich campaign. A number of GOP presidential candidates – including Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann – used the state as an ATM during...

    The killing of an unarmed black teenager in Florida became a presidential campaign issue Sunday as David Plouffe, senior adviser to President Barack Obama, fired back at Republican presidential contender Newt Gingrich. On Friday, Mr. Obama spoke out for the first time on the killing of Trayvon Martin, saying, “If I had a son, he would look just like Trayvon.” Mr. Gingrich, speaking Friday on Fox News’s “Sean Hannity Show,” called Mr. Obama’s statement “disgraceful,” adding, “Is the president suggesting that, if it had been a white who’d been shot, that would be OK, because it wouldn’t look like him?”...
  • Why Gingrich Should Stay in the GOP race all the way to Tampa Convention

    Newt Gingrich is so valuable to the American Conservative movement in America. This is why Newt should stay in the race all the way to the convention in August. Everyday, Newt clearly expresses conservative policy, positions, plans and Obama rebuttals. Newt pushes and explains doable plans for energy, Social Security, Iran etc every week, where Santorum and Romney are talking pious generalities. Let's face it. The other thing that Newt is doing with his substantive speeches and TV radio appearances is he is showing the world that he is solid presidential material. So if Mitt or Rick continue to screw...
  • Billionaire Sheldon Adelson Gives Additional $5.5 Million to Pro-Gingrich Super-PAC.

    Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson contributed another $5.5 million to Winning Our Future, the super-PAC supporting Newt Gingrich, according to Federal Election Commission documents filed Tuesday. The former House Speaker has vowed to stay in the race until the Tampa, Fla., convention in August, and denies that he’s only being kept afloat by the large donations from Adelson. “I have 176,000 supporters at newt.org — they want me to stay in the race. I really represent their interests as individuals," he told CBS last week, claiming that "95 percent have given less than $250" — meaning they haven't hit their legal...

    NEW ORLEANS--It was less a campaign speech and more a general studies lecture. Standing against the backdrop of a chalkboard and two massive charts featuring the periodic table, Newt Gingrich spent his final campaign event ahead of Saturday's Louisiana primary addressing a classroom full of Tulane University students. For nearly 45 minutes, the former House speaker talked at length about an array of somewhat unexpected subjects, including the Wright Brothers feud with the Smithsonian over the birth of modern aviation—an analogy he made to highlight private enterprise versus over-the-top government spending. He described himself as a "dreamer" and defended his...
  • Newt Gingrich Slams Obama's 'Disgraceful' Comments

    Newt Gingrich today hit out at Barack Obama's intervention in the case of the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager, calling the President's comments 'disgraceful' and racially divisive. Mr Obama heightened the national outcry over Trayvon Martin's death when he called for a thorough investigation into the case and expressed sympathy with the boy's parents. Martin's killing by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in Orlando has sparked nationwide calls - led by civil rights leader Al Sharpton - for Zimmerman to be arrested. But GOP presidential candidate Mr Gingrich said Mr Obama's remarks were 'dividing the country up', and...

    Unlike every other election where people like Sean Hannity call it "the most important election" each and every time, this election does have some serious importance, especially if the Supreme Court rules against the states and the Constitution and finds for Obama Care. Should that happen, this election will be the last chance to reverse course before we enter the Euro - socialist world and destroy the foundations ofthe United States of America. So this election is kinda important. How do the candidates stack up? Who can you support as a conservative and why? Sarah Palin is my choice, and...

    Newt Gingrich continues to grapple with accusations that his stump speech riff about President Obama attacking Christians is a dog whistle that the president is Muslim. He was then pressed about whether he was concerned that polls find people continue to think Obama is a Muslim. "Why does the president behave the way that people would think that?" Gingrich said in response. "You have to ask why would they believe that? It's not cause they're stupid. It's because they watch the kind of things I just described to you." Gingrich frequently rails on the administration for "anti-religious bigotry" and claims...

    President Obama’s remarks today about the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin drew scowls from GOP presidential contender New Gingrich, who called them “disgraceful” and divisive. “What the president said in a sense is disgraceful. It’s not a question of who that young man looked like,” Gingrich said on Sean Hannity’s radio show. President Obama today offered a personal reflection on the tragic shooting the Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, saying the incident requires all Americans to “do some soul searching.” “When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids,” Obama told reporters.... Gingrich said on the radio show:...
