Posted on 12/29/2011 4:42:59 PM PST by true believer forever
Gingrich's rebellion against Bush's 1990 betrayal of Reaganomics was his finest hour. That leadership is what led to the House Republican takeover in 1994. If conservatives and supply-siders do not rally around Gingrich now, and allow the Bush crowd to win with Romney, Reaganism will have been routed out of the Republican Party. Undoubtedly, John Sununu will pick Romney's budget director (remember his pick of Supreme Court Justice David Souter over the conservative alternative that would have given conservatives a firm majority on the Court). The first thing Romney will do if elected is exactly the reprise of the 1990 tax increase budget deal for which the Washington establishment that will run a Romney Administration is always pining. That will require another round of Democrats in the White House before conservatives can even get a chance at winning again, which America cannot survive at this point.

Newt Gingrich.. do you care about his past or Americas Future?
"He led us to victory before. Spectacular, historic victory. The strategy and content of his 1994 Contract with America propelled the Republicans in 1994 to win control of the House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years. Even the Reagan Revolution in the 1980s failed to achieve that.
Moreover, once in power, Gingrich delivered on his promises, and maintained a solid conservative record. He carried out the Contract with America in full, holding a vote on every item as promised, most of which did pass. His record was unswervingly pro-life, pro-gun and Second Amendment, and anti-tax."**
Newt's the only one with the experience, and the courage to guide America through these troubling times.
And, he will hit the ground running on DAY ONE.*
He knows how to fix it.
*Presidents can begin turning things around very very quickly. As part of his 21st Century Contract with America, Newt has pledged to issue a series of Executive Orders to create jobs and help undo the damage of the Obama administration on the first day of his administration. Newt.org will periodically release user submitted executive orders which will be added to the list he will sign on the first day of his presidency.

I don’t care about Gingrich’s past...in fact what I DO know, I wish I didn’t.
‘The best predictor of someone’s future still yet is that ones past.’

BECAUSE of his past I do not trust him with America’s future.
However, if you're judging his personal life, I'll
disagree. Since I believe his faith and mine allow
What a damning summary of the prospect of a Romney Presidency. I do not want a reprise of Bush 41.
If we disregard Newt’s past, viewing him as a clean slate, on what basis can anyone claim support of his candidacy? And if we must pick and choose what aspects of his past we do want to accept... Well, I’ll stop right there. It gets way too convoluted. I’ll just say that I care both about Newt’s past and America’s future - which is why I will not be supporting him in the primaries.
Newt has my vote, period.
You can read his books, his white papers, watch a few of his documentaries that depict his deep love for this country. You can objectively look at what he accomplished - that no one else ever accomplished - despite his personal demons. You can understand he has a new faith in Christ, and you can come to the intellectual understanding that the establishment republicans are scared to death of him because he won’t do what they tell him and toe the party line... just a thought...
Not according to Christian belief in forgiveness and being made new through faith in Christ Jesus... People become new and start over again... I believe that is what Newt has found.
Only if "other things being equal." Which they rarely are, which is why dubious nostrums like this one seldom help predict anything much at all.
Newt hasn't a prayer of getting nominated, much less elected.
Most conservatives I know view him as bad as, or worse than Romney.
My future is tied directly to this election!
I don’t care about Newt’s pecker problem, I care about what he knows about leading a country!
The rest are all a bunch of Newt wannabes.
Man is known all down through time to be a sinful being who sins over and over. Newt is no different. Nor are you and I brother so get off your holier than I high-horse and walk among us lowly sinners who strive to walk in His path daily. Newt is as big or maybe even bigger a sinner in this regard than any of us here. Get over it and yourselves. Newt is not Jesus resurrected from the grave you want to believe so much in.
So you say. I say that's a load of......
FR cared VERY much about Rudy Giuliani’s similar past. It was all over FR.

Matthew 6:12NLT And forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 10 Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: God, I thank you that I am not like other peoplerobbers, evildoers, adulterersor even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.
13 But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
14 I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.
Luke 6:42 NIV How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
He has a proven record of reform.
He has been through the media gauntlet, endured negative political attacks and maintained a composure that reminds me of a president.
He has the communication skills to trounce Obama in the debates.
The liberals hate him and for good reason. He has the political skill circumvent and defeat their harebrained ideas.
He is going to make positive changes from day one.
Great quote from article:
