    The London Daily Telegraph ^ | August 23, 2012 | Jon Swaine, The Daily Telegraph
    Bob Dole, the last Republican to challenge a Democratic president, has urged Mitt Romney to confront their party's Right wing and likened the Romney-Ryan ticket to his own ultimately unsuccessful partnership with Jack Kemp in 1996. Mr Dole, a former Kansas Senator defeated by Bill Clinton 16 years ago, said the party should follow his example of "mainstream" Republicanism and become more appealing to ethnic minorities and young people to secure its future. "We have got to be open," he said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph. "We cannot be a single-issue party or single-philosophy party". He added: "There's...

    Several major conservative leaders, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, have been invited to speak at the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. That’s not a bad lineup. However, as of this writing, three notable figures are still missing from the list of announced speakers. And we’re not talking about right-leaning celebrities or conservative politicians who have recently found themselves in the spotlight; we’re talking about three public figures who, at one time or another, have played a major role in rallying the conservative...

    Even those of us who couldn’t quite bring ourselves to back Newt Gingrich in the primaries hoped that he would play a big role in the general election as a surrogate. This video demonstrates why. Gingrich reacts to Piers Morgan’s suggestion that the “big flaw” in Ryan’s budget was that the rich would do well, and in two minutes teaches Economics 101, accuses Morgan of media bias, and rips the Obama economy as the “worst recovery in 75 years.” And that’s just Newt getting warmed up, as Newsbusters highlights: NEWT GINGRICH: You know, I don’t want to sound disrespectful, but...
  • Newt: Romney Should Serve Chick-fil-A at Convention

    08/10/2012 6:29:27 PM PDT · by tsowellfan · 23 replies
    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich tells Newsmax there is an easy way for Mitt Romney to show support for Chick-fil-A and its president’s statements backing traditional marriage — serve the chain’s meals at the Republican National Convention. Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy sparked controversy when he told the Baptist Press that the family-owned company, which puts faith ahead of profits by closing on Sundays, was “guilty as charged” for backing the “biblical definition of a family.” He later ratcheted up the rhetoric in a radio interview, saying: “I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our...
  • Gingrich on Sebelius: 'She Is Waging War on The Catholic Church’

    Cybercast News Service ^ | August 8, 2012 | Matt Cover
    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on Wednesday that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was “waging war on the Catholic Church”—an apparent reference to the Obamacare regulation she finalized earlier this year that requires nearly all health-care plans to offer sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortion-inducing drugs free of charge. “This secretary of HHS is a radical. She is waging war on the Catholic Church. She’s adopted radical positions on a range of issues,” Gingrich said during a conference call on Wednesday. … In its lawsuit against the HHS and Sebelius, the Archdiocese of New York cited similar comments made...

    The Hill ^ | 08/06/12 | Niall Stanage
    Rick Santorum is organizing an event at this month’s Republican National Convention to rally conservatives in support of presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney, a key Santorum aide has told The Hill. But Santorum has not yet received any promise from the Romney team, even in private, that he will be asked to deliver an address from the podium in Tampa. The former Pennsylvania senator’s long-time senior strategist, John Brabender, warned that conservatives would be “quite disturbed” if they felt that Santorum was not accorded the prominence they believe he deserves at the quadrennial gathering.  One of Santorum’s key strengths is...

    Via POLITICO's Ginger Gibson, who's with Newt Gingrich in Arlington, Va., the ex-candidate defended Mitt Romney's comments in Israel from earlier today and pressed the issue further: At a Romney campaign-organized event in Arlington, Va., Newt Gingrich spent most of the time talking about everything but the economy. Asked about Mitt Romney’s remarks at an Israeli fundraiser that drew rebuke from Palestinian officials, Gingrich said there was evidence that culture was causing a disparity in wealth not only in the Middle East, but around the world. “The United Nations camps have been terrorist training grounds. And I think that they're...

    American Thinker ^ | 07/31/2012 | Andrew Bostom
    Two years ago, July 29, 2010, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich delivered a singularly astute and courageous address. Reactions to that speech across the political spectrum, whether immediate or delayed, illustrated the contemporary equivalent of what the greatest historian of Soviet Communist totalitarianism, Robert Conquest, appositely characterized as "mindslaughter" -- a brilliantly evocative term for delusive Western apologetics regarding the ideology of Communism and the tangible horrors its Communist votaries inflicted. What did Newt Gingrich have the temerity to discuss? In defiance of our era's most rigidly enforced cultural relativist taboo, Mr. Gingrich provided an irrefragably accurate if...

    07/30/2012 2:00:00 PM PDT · by BarnacleCenturion · 32 replies ^ | Jul 30, 2012 | Evann Gastaldo
    In a six-page, 2,500-word Politico op-ed (with an attached three-page, 1,800-word appendix), Newt Gingrich makes it crystal clear that he is on the side of Michele Bachmann and her four fellow members of Congress who want an inquiry into whether the government is being infiltrated by Islamic extremists. (He refers to the group as "the National Security Five.") According to Gingrich, the quick and plentiful denouncements of Bachmann's theory are simply examples "of the fear our elites have about discussing and understanding radical Islamists," he writes. "You have to wonder why people would aggressively assert we shouldn’t ask about national...

    NJ Sen. Lautenberg Planning to Reintroduce Gun Control Legislation In Wake Of Colorado Shooting by Josh Feldman | 10:21 pm, July 20th, 2012 » 169 comments Despite all of the calls not to politicize the Colorado shootings last night, gun control advocates have been demanding that politicians use it as an opportunity to take action on national gun laws. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence said earlier that they “don’t want sympathy” from President Obama and Mitt Romney, they “want action.” It is with all of this in mind that New Jersey senator Frank Lautenberg is planning on reintroducing...

    Politics makes strange bedfellows, and apparently so does late-night television. Wednesday on “The Tonight Show,” “Jersey Shore” star and mom-to-be Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi found herself on Jay Leno’s couch, seated next to former presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. It was an odd pairing, to say the least, but by the end of the segment, Snooks and Gingrich were, to quote another New Jersey reality-TV star, “as thick as thieves.”

    RUSH: Okay, the three stools of Ronald Reagan: Defeat the communists. Check. Lower American taxes to revive the economy. Check. Rebuild the military. Check. Three things. Now, what's Romney running on? Romney's running on one thing, and he'd better change it. (interruption) No, he's not doing that. He's not running on, "I'm not Obama." He's running on the economy, and he's gotta get tougher than that. He's got to branch out. The economy speaks for itself. But there's also the question here: How many people really care about that? We've got three years. Nobody's demanding this guy be thrown out?...

    Former U.S. House Speaker and one-time presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, spoke to a crowd of over 500 Republican supporters at a GOP Convention today in Missoula. "We should in fact speak well of our dreamer-in-chief. Now he can't run the economy, he ca't defend the country, he doesn't understand the Constitution, he surrounds himself with radicals who are out of touch with reality, but those are minor things," says Gingrich. "Just ask people, can they afford four more years of Barack Obama? I don't think ther's a town in this state that thinks that four more years of the pain...
