    Appearing before the National Rifle Association annual meeting this afternoon, Newt Gingrich called for a new United Nations treaty that would give the right to bear arms to every person on the planet. This proposed treaty would counter the United Nations Small Arms Treaty currently supported by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. After Gingrich’s speech concluded, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox came out on stage and said “The Gingrich Treaty…I like that.” The Daily Beast noted that Newt’s reception from the crowd of 5,000 people was more enthusiastic than Governor Romney’s. If the Republican presidential nomination were decided by the...

    Newt nipped by zoo penguin, gets Band-Aid ReutersBy Bruce Olson | Reuters – 7 mins ago ST. LOUIS (Reuters) - Things have not been going all that well for Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich lately, even at one of his favorite places - the zoo. Newt was nipped on the finger by a penguin during a private tour of the famous St. Louis zoo on Friday before he spoke to the National Rifle Association convention, zoo officials confirmed on Monday. Gingrich, who is trailing in the Republican race for the White House and is under pressure to withdraw, passed unscathed...

    It is terrible that conservatives are out there distorting the records of each candidate. Or worse passing along wrong information without checking facts. All of them have qualifications and disqualifications. But can we get away from what they SAY they will do and compare what they actually DID when they were afforded governing power? I was talking to a nationally published conservative author and speaker today who had absolutely no clue that Newt Gingrich gave the “keynote” rebuttal AGAINST Al Gore on Cap and Trade legislation. This is a travesty not just of conservative media, but those we surround ourselves...

    GREENSBORO, N.C. – The day after Newt Gingrich was bit by a penguin at a zoo, he acknowledged he is “the underdog” and said his campaign began renting their donor list because they needed money. --- “Compared to Barack Obama, Romney’s a conservative,” he said. “Let’s be clear: There are no liberals in the Republican party.”

    While everyone is in the weeds counting delegates and wondering who Santorum will endorse (it will be Romney), few people are talking about the degree to which the GOP will be emboldened if Romney gets the nomination. It will be a sign to them they can get the evangelical, social and fiscal conservatives to fall in line, all they have to do is wait them out. A few days ago, Mark Levin said he was disgusted with the Republican establishment, right after he said, 'we conservatives have to work together to pull out a victory for Mitt Romney’, just one...

    At least we could, until quite recently, take solace that we had our own conservative media bastion, although it was nowhere near the size and the scope of the “lamestream media” (a term coined by Bernard Goldberg and made popular by Sarah Palin). But at some point after the turn of the century, just as a majority of Americans began to visualize the true proportions of the larger media’s malpractice, our own little conservative press safe house had suffered a nasty termite infestation. Out of sight and out of mind behind the virtual walls of our conservative citadel of communications,...

    With Rick Santorum out of the Republican presidential field, clearing a path to the nomination for Mitt Romney, the fight to become the party’s standard-bearer is over, right? Well, not entirely. Despite the nearly unanimous view that Mr. Romney will be President Obama’s challenger in the fall, there are still two men — Representative Ron Paul of Texas and Newt Gingrich, the former speaker of the House — who have not yet agreed. In the face of scorn from their peers, they continue to campaign, even if fewer people are paying attention. Both men say they are seeking influence over...

    Newt Gingrich, former House Speaker and a major Washington figure for decades, has been pushed to the fringes of presidential campaign discourse. Although he’s still formally a candidate for the GOP’s 2012 nomination, he describes Mitt Romney as "far and away the most likely" GOP nominee – a fact made all-but-certain by Rick Santorum’s dropping out this week. Mr. Santorum had been Romney’s last remaining serious challenger. With $4.5 million in debt, the Gingrich campaign organization has been operating on a shoestring as his principal financial angel, billionaire casino owner Sheldon Adelson, began moving toward the Romney campaign. “It appears...

    The exit of Rick Santorum from the Republican presidential primary essentially clears the path Mitt Romney is traveling to become the party's nominee against U.S. President Obama in November but Romney still has to win the hearts of GOP voters as well as the party's nomination. Romney had 573 delegates per the Republican National Committee's count to Santorum's 202 delegates when the former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania withdrew last week. But he has yet to stir a fire in the belly of the party's evangelical and conservative wings as he moves closer to the 1,144 delegates needed to claim the...

    Be honest, without Newt Gingrich and his conservative ideas and plans for the country on radio, TV, newspapers, rallies, etc., the political discouse goes back to being really boring and insulting. Basically, there will be no passionate plans and ideas coming from Romney. We will be left with a beauty contest between Obama and his liberal "gushers" and Romney and his wife Ann trying to play "Leave it to Beaver" in front of the American public. Without Newt, for the next 4 months, we Americans will have to endure the mainstream media and Fox News pushing the shallow aspects of...

    I think you are missing something here. Newt would bring the ever Lurking Calista with him and she was the cause of divorce # 2. He was rubbing it in everybody's face that an old coot like him could get somebody like her. No matter how God awful she looked. He was delusional to think he could get the evangelicals with that approach. Newt is the one that shot himself in the foot not Hume. Hume is just another excuse for Newt in a long line of excuse's. He was rubbing it in everybody's face that an old coot like...

    Asked the question in an interview with local radio station WILM at the Hollywood Diner, Gingrich, one of three contenders left in the race for the GOP presidential nomination, said he wouldn’t be interested in joining likely nominee Romney’s Cabinet, but added—“not because I am opposed to Mitt.” “Look, if the choice does end up being Romney versus [President] Obama, I can be very, very enthusiastic for Romney; that is a huge choice,” the former House speaker said. “But I had a very good life doing a lot of fun things: I’m a grandfather, I’ve got two grandchildren I want...
  • Gingrich: Unlikely to accept Romney Cabinet post

    04/12/2012 9:46:54 AM PDT · by Taiowa · 5 replies
    Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says he probably wouldn't accept a job in Mitt Romney's Cabinet, if Romney is elected in November and such an offer is extended. Gingrich told WILM-AM's "Elliott In the Morning" show Thursday that he's not opposed to Romney, the likely GOP presidential nominee. He says he'd back Romney if the choice is between Romney and President Barack Obama. But the former House speaker said he would prefer to be an adviser to a potential Romney administration, as he was during the presidency of Republican George W. Bush. Gingrich says he wants to enjoy his life...

    - During a meeting with 18 Delaware Tea Party leaders here on Wednesday, Newt Gingrich lambasted The Fox News Channel, accusing the cable news network that employed him as recently as last year of having been in the tank for Mitt Romney from the beginning of the Republican presidential fight and singling out former colleagues for attacking him out of what he characterized as personal jealousy. “I think Fox has been for Romney all the way through,” Gingrich said during the private meeting at Wesley College to which RealClearPolitics was granted access. “In our experience, Callista and I both believe...

    It is NOT over for conservatives if we have the will and the fortitude to use our God given brains instead of capitulating to the easy, thoughtless choice. This is just like watching the film "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" when by the end of the film, the people of the resistance give in to their urge to go to sleep. Are we those people - or do we have the courage to see this through to the end? Is America worth the fight? Those pseudo-journalists at Fox who MANUFACTURED and defrauded their viewers by sitting on facts about Mitt...

    Newt Gingrich pledged to stay in the race for the Republican presidential nod, even as Rick Santorum suspended his campaign on Tuesday. “I am committed to staying in this race all the way to Tampa so that the conservative movement has a real choice,” Gingrich said in a statement released after Santorum’s announcement in Gettysburg, Pa. Gingrich, whose campaign is carrying roughly $4.5 million in debt, immediately began trying to use Santorum’s exit as a fundraising vehicle, adding a banner to the front of his website declaring him the “last conservative standing.” “I humbly ask Senator Santorum’s supporters to visit...

    Rick Santorum Was The Most Conservative, Authentic and Resilient Candidate of 2012. Tim Stanley April 10th Rick Santorum's struggle touched a chord with many working-class Americans Rick Santorum said goodbye on Tuesday afternoon. It was a classic performance from the Rickster – heartfelt, overlong, a little bitter. He pledged to go on fighting for the little people but acknowledged that the race was over, brought to a close by his daughter’s illness and poor polling. To most people this means that it’s now between Romney and Obama. The only minority report on that will come from Newt Gingrich. You can...

    (RALEIGH) -- Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is spending a lot of time in North Carolina this week. The former House Speaker told supporters in Raleigh on Monday that he is staying in the race to influence the party's platform. Even though Gingrich is in third place and his poll numbers are shrinking, he said he is staying in the race to influence the party's platform. At the same time, he explained why he thinks frontrunner Mitt Romney will win the nomination and the White House. "What I said was compared to Barack Obama he is conservative enough. But the...
