Newt Gingrich on Craig Ferguson Show! Posted at Politijim. Newt was a great guest! (I think this must have been last spring or summer? Not sure.)
Newt is the only candidate who understands Islam. He will not be politically correct, and
evasive in his dealings with the muslims. He has called them on their Islamaphobia charges
before. For this reason alone, he deserves the presidency.
I still like Newt. He's a serious candidate with a solid track record. Checkered, yes, but solid. He's got real, practical ideas for dealing with the problems facing America and is not engaged in a popularity contest.
What bugs me in this interview is at the beginning where it sounds like he's got a double-standard where everybody else should drop out, but not himself when he meets those same criteria. Dumb move on that one.
I like your comment because of what you said about his "solid record" but I didn't interpret that he wants others to drop out as you say...so I disagree there.
I would love to see paul AND santorum drop out and endorse Newt but I doubt that will happen.
I still believe that Newt is the man for the job. I just got a video from a friend that has Obama asking that "black Americans" support him. He makes the election a "race issue" himself. The man has to go. Newt can do it if the republicans stop trashing each other and ruining the image of the republican party. They are just giving Obama a bigger chance of winning. Check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdjoHA5ocwU
Obamas latest speech is as usual with a forked tongue. He states how many jobs he created, but NEVER mentions how many jobs were lost during his administration. AND with gas prices soaring, another big issue will probably hurt Obama. I will vote for any republican who runs against him, even Mickey Mouse.
I think that if Romney loses MI, then establishment will begin to panic. Im glad that both stayed in. If either candidate dropped out then Mitt would would solely focus on them and he would surely win the nomination. Here we see candidates pick up states that are not going to Romney. This would lead to a brokered convention. The delegates would have several options. One is to select Newt or Rick. Two is to select another candidate, could be establishment or not establishment.
sorry.... I may have gotten a little carried away...I was just coming off of a 12 hour night shift and was a little cross.
But I really do get irritated when they call my Newt a sleaze or weasel or other derogatory thing when mitt romney is the one that releases a stink bomb of lies on anyone who dares to appeal to voters over him.
To me he is no better than obama.
*in her best Scarlett O'hara accent*...
"I hate him"
There's something else I meant to post about Gingrich. I really think that he killed his Florida chance with his debate performance there. By saying he didn't know what to do with someone who is blatantly lying, he pulled the rug out from his own feet, because we all know Obama is going to lie like crazy. (All ready is).
But this is one thing I would say about Newt: if he got elected, I have NO DOUBT in my mind that BIG things would happen, and YES, we would have a freakin' moon base to boot! :)
What's sad is on Fox they are still spreading the propaganda that independents just will not go for a conservative. They said it again on Fox News Sunday today, and as Rush points out, they're going to go for Pelosi / Obama instead of Gingrich or Santorum? Rubbish.
Seriously, Why is Mitt or Santorum even in consideration, when we clearly have a man "GINGRICH" with all his where with-all, his brilliant mind and wait for-it.............. a real coarse of action, with proven idea's and actual solution's?
What happened with Santorum was to simply stop Romney, which was very affective-- but I don't see Rick bringing "O" down either. Sure Newt's campaign at this point looks dim, but don't count him out just yet.
Like Sarah has stated-- she wants these candidates "Rick & Mittins" are who she's referring too BTW: to start talking about their message and what they will do to get our country back? and to stop this infighting AKA: ROMNEY......!
Also too, she did state that whom ever our nominee is, we need to get behind them, even if we have to drag them across the finish line. hmmm, I wonder who she was referring too when she made those comment's at Cpac? "Newt" no doubt about-it!
Now we're hearing about a brokered convention and Jeb Bush getting-in? *rolleyes* "if" that happens, Sarah all the way!
So, at this point these primaries are any-one's guess, however I'm hoping Newt will make a come back and become our nominee. As much as many have stated Newt has to much baggage etc. Well, even with all his negative baggage-- Newt has a proven record and will get thing's done and put America on the right track. The even bigger bonus to Newt's win, he will appoint Sarah a cabinet position...........smart man!
A win, win and great start. Keeping finger's crossed.
There has been no vetting of Santorum. His surge is not because of his "glowing" credentials, it's because Romney slung millions of dollars of mud at Gingrich and no one wanted Romney to begin with. I am beginning to think Santorum supporters are just decoys to help Romney.
ITA, and we'll see if Romney will sling that mud back at Santorum with a vengence and if Mitt doesn't, then BINGO-- wodiej you would be correct. Romney wants to be POTUS for all the wrong reasons and the Establishment just wants to be the Establishment:
It's down to this: It's either for our Freedom Newt/Sarah or for the status-quo Romney/ his lackeys.........or Santorum.
Next-- is the big fight, who can and will take-it to "O"
All other issues except for the Spiraling Debt are side issues..We do not need Gentle Touchy touchy feel good Conservative Republicans, we do not need an over the hill libertarian, we do not need this slimy forked tongue lying ObamaNation. What we need is a Snarling Bull Dog , reared in DC's Junkyard teamed with a Lipstick wearing Griz hunting Pit Bull to rend asunder this monstrosity roaming unhindered in the Heartland. This pack needs to rip out pork waste, run off interloping scavengers, rip to shreds Lying Bloated Fat Cats and out Howl the howling of Pampered Poodles and corner that deceitful Fast and Furious Doberman for prosecution. In general make a Dogs Breakfast of this ObamaNation.
Yea! I agree whole heartedly. We need to do everything we can to stop wasting money --- I can't even call it spending because that assumes wise use of money.
I think Newt Gingrich is the only candidate to turn America around.
I care about the things Gingrich has done for America, as compared to what the other candidates have done as legislators.
I care that, as the Speaker of the House, he and the rest of the Republicans got things done. They balanced the budget for four years in a row with a Democrat for president. Soon we will have four years in a row with NO budget.
I care that they reformed entitlements(welfare) when it was considered (and still is) the third rail of politics.
Not only did he know what to do but he did/does it. For that he was pilloried by the Democrats and the media with false ethics violations. That was his third rail electrocution for handling welfare reform. And still he is unafraid. He continues to do what is right and he is the conservative candidate we need.
I care that he can destroy every lame stream media meme with derision. Unfortunately Santorum brings seriousness to events that require in-your-face derision. While Santorum can knock down the media. Gingrich flattens them in a knockout punch.
After all, every Republican candidate is running against the media not Obama. Whether you like it or not Santorum consistently brings a knife to the gunfight that is the lame stream media.
I believe what Gingrich says because I know he has accomplished the work in the past. For each Republican candidate, I want to see their work -- their record for conservative fiscal responsibility.
And with his record Newt Gingrich wins my vote hands down.
And any other real or imagined deficit he has as a candidate DOES NOT matter.
Thank you for the response the only differ I have with your reply is Social Security was never intended as an Entitlement. for those who pay into it. Congress hijacked the SS fund and added a krap load of non contributors while STEALING additional money from it. Final Insult to the contributing workers is the inclusion of SS into the Health and Human services cesspool. No SS is not an entitlement it is bought and paid for by its contributors. Get everyone else the hell off of it.
Social Security is not an entitlement nor is it welfare. My statement never mentioned anything about Social Security. You conflated my statement about welfare to include Social Security. Both you and I know that Social Security is NOT welfare. They are two completely separate issues.
When Gingrich was Speaker of the House, the Congress did what at that time was called welfare system reform, now called entitlement reform
That's the right thinking!!!! Lets start to believe in the true strength of conservatives. Lets start to believe that these RINO's are so weak that Romney DOES NOT matter. Lets start to believe that we can have a choice of two conservative candidates. Gingrich or Santorum. What a wonderfully difficult choice that would be.
Hah - Romney is up to his dirty rotten tactics and LIES again.
Romney is planning to run ads in Georgia that falsely state Newt supported China's one-child policy and forced abortions.
Newt is threatening to sue any TV stations that runs those ads:
People forget that this race is totally different than previous elections. More people are involved and the vetting is more intense. The race is still fluid and who knows, we might have a brokered convention.
It is good that we're are almost at the end of February and we still have candidates. We should continue to split the vote. Can you imagine the media and the RINOs having their way and forcing their presumptuous nominee? This only makes each candidate stronger. There is nothing wrong with that.
I say, Newt should stay in until the bitter end. And, may the best man win. I'm hoping it's Newt, but I'll take sticky Ricky too.
As to a brokered convention...
Here is long-time conservative politcal activist Richard Viguerie telling conservatives they should fight for an "open convention" and against a "brokered convention"...
Very well explained:
'The Republican National Convention process is almost entirely controlled by the inside-the-Beltway Republican establishment. Therefore, the last thing Tea Partiers and grassroots movement conservatives should hope for is a “brokered” convention. Such an arrangement would handover the selection of the Republican nominee to the establishment powerbrokers who are, for the most part, backing Romney and his business-as-usual policies.'
While Newt dropping out the race would doubtless bring Santorum more votes, Newt and Santorum hounding Romney from both sides is effectively wearing him down.
I am beginning to think it is the best way to keep RINOmeny from being the candidate.
In ma ma ma ma ma my opinion he will not come out ahead at a brokered convention.
And building this idiot up: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/president_obama_job_approval-1044.html
If you don't even have a 5% chance of securing your party's nomination, you have much bigger problems than Mitt(ens!)
Blows with the wind
Just watch it during the next primary and see how it fluctuates based on the MSM poll reporting if you don't believe me.
It was mostly a joke... like his chances of him actually getting the nomination.
Do you think Newt is going to turn this 14 point deficit around though? http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/us/general_election_gingrich_vs_obama-1453.html
Look. It really does not matter. What is happening is not about the politicians, in my opinion, and "them" dropping out. To me it is more about the media cannot MAKE the news THEY want when you have strong and stubborn people like Newt, Rick, and Ron. The media, to include FNC had it all fig'erred! Mitt was the choice. That is what the talk heads like Krauthammer, Steve Hayes, Krystol, Hume, Baer, Ailes, OReilly, etc wanted, oh yes, Hannity too. The decision was made to walk back any conservative chatter, (Tea Party), and take on the liberal Mitt with the aid of the other liberal republicans (better known as rinos, establishment, bluebloods). And we the people are speaking out. It doesn't matter that the so called conservatives are split. And Mitt is not just laying back. He is playing the nastiest, dirtiest game in years. And he is still only 30% there. With 3 fronts, Mitt has to practice on all. If there was one, he would be insufferable. I want a raucus convention! Either Santorum or Newt will win, unless Sarah jumps in. Even if Jeb jumps in, he will not win. He is the same as Mitt.
People are tired of big money establishment politicians.
HERE is a story that will curl your hair:
There are more of these kinds of stories.
Romney is in the thick of this kind of thing.
He got HUGE (US taxpayer money) bail-outs for both Bain Capital and the Olympics:
"Romney has a history of surviving poor decision-making by gulping down federal largesse. He’s built up an impressive mythology about someone who makes things work."
"Most U.S. tax dollars per athlete. Federal spending for the Salt Lake City Games will average $625,000 for each of the 2,400 athletes who will compete. (Not a penny of it will go to the athletes.) That's a 996% increase from the $57,000 average for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. It's a staggering 5,582% jump from the $11,000 average for the 1984 Summer Games in Los Angeles."
"And for the upcoming 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the estimated cost to American taxpayers is 1.3 billion dollars. That's outrageous Mr. President. And it's a disgrace," McCain said. (2001)
BAIN - Bain Capital was also beneficiary of US taxpayer dollar BAILOUT - http://thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/10538-romneys-skeletons-his-bain-capital-received-millions-in-bailouts
You'll need some spare time (33 mins), but this interview on Uncommon Knowledge with Newt is worth it: http://www.newt.org/news/video-peter-robinson-interviews-newt-gingrich-uncommon-knowledge
If you haven't seen this... watch Victory or Death - Newt's speech in 2009 before he even decided to run for President.
This is part 1.. there are 5 parts - and it is incredible!!! This is what sold me on his candidacy.
I watched that to and it was excellent and quite moving. I'm a real pushover when someone can speak that eloquently and sincerely about America history. There are still more patriotic Americans than there are squishes and even some of the squishes might rethink their position if we had someone like Newt to explain where we started and where we should be going. I think some Americans have just given up. It's easy to become jaded when your own government is the one trying to do you in.
thanks, that was good. I don't believe all of this sudden support for Santorum is solid. I think Romney supporters including the establishment are propping up Santorum to try to force Gingrich out. If he drops out, Santorums numbers will drop like a lead balloon. There is no other rational explanation unless people simply aren't concerned with who is best to fix the mess we're in.
