Is this the "major defining speech" I have heard the networks describe all morning? The one Newt was supposed to start at 9:00 a.m.? Or is that supposed to be later in the day?

It wasn't described as a town hall meeting.

Newt blasting anti-Christian bigotry.

“If I am elected President, we will not tolerate a speech dictatorship in this country!”

If Newt could pull close to 50% in this one, it would erase all the past disappointments and make him the unquestioned leader. SC is much more typical of the mainstream of American people and the travails of living under Obama Rule.

You are welcome. He just got done saying we have judges out of control, establishment out of control, and bureaucracies out of control. He also talked about the bias toward Christians and “as president I will not tolerate it.” He said we need a leader who is prepared to tell the truth about this Saul Alinsky radical president. WHOOHOO!!!!!!

"I will spend a few minutes telling you the truth, telling you where we are going...we have to nominate someone who is a leader, prepared for a series of debates, and who will tell the truth about a Saul Alinksky radical...I am prepared to challenge the president to 7 three-hour debates without a moderator...I am prepared to let the president use a telepromptor...I can tell the truth better without a telepromptor than he can fake it with a telepromptor..."

Sorry for any typos.

No. It is an open primary there but not as many liberals in SC. Rand Paul is on the local radio station as I type this stumping for his father.

Insist on a complete and total audit of federal reserve. The establishment is covering up a lot. Talking about TARP and who got money? Who didn’t???? Goldman Sachs, AIG mentioned.

“On the very first day I will instruct the attorney general to drop any lawsuit regarding voter identification...Obama administration is afraid of any honest election...shouldn’t be challenged by anyone who is illegal, dead, or shouldn’t be voting. I believe the American people have the right to know about what has been going out the last 3 or 4 years. The federal reserve has been pouring trillions of dollars into the economy with no accountability...I want a complete audit...we deserve to know...who got money and who didn’t...starting with Bush administration...Goldman Sachs...how did they make the decisions?”

We need a completely new dialogue about the Middle East. Talks about the Christians being killed and driven out and THAT IS NOT A SUCCESS. You cannot negotiate with people who want to kill you. An Iranian nuke is not good. They will use it.

I’ve got to run, I’ll follow the thread. (I have to admit so far I haven’t heard anything new, but Fox and MSNBC were touting this as a major speech so maybe that will come a bit later.)

Yeah, he promised a "major" announcement. He'd best say something big before it's over or I won't fall for that one from him again. I even turned on the TV to see it; and that never happens before 6pm when Bret Baier comes on (goes right back off at 7).

That is the Romney camp M.O.

Nope, Newt is making his appeal to SC voters. It surely seems as if he is endorsing...himself.

Going after crony capitalism and stating the difference between free enterprise and cc.

“I want a free enterprise that is honest and not full of CC”

He needs to let the folk there know about Willard’s past support of abortion on demand and support of the homosexual agenda. He needs to hit Willard with everything he’s got in his arsenal. Maybe he needs to go back and watch some videos from 2008 when McCain and Huckabee (RINOs that now were promised something by Willard), to see how it’s done. Both McCain and Huckabee peeled the hide right off Willard and he finishe in 4th place in SC. No more Mr. Niceguy.
And it would also be nice if Santorum and Perry got out and supported Gingrich. Santorum does not have the money to compete and Perry is considered a dunce, even in SC.

Hussein would never consent to a debate with Newt. And that is why the press is dead set against him even having the “opportunity” to set the stage for a debate. The msm knows Newt would wipe the floor with obams.

Every television station and radio station I listened to this morning had EXACTLY the same thing to say about Gingrich.

"He's getting nasty and his relentless attacks on Mitt Romney appear to be personal rather than about policy."

Oh, and did I mention that it was "very classy" of Ron Paul to stand up for Mitt Romney. Well, my television mentioned it. About fifty times this morning.

What power distributes the morning talking points and how do they get everybody from FoxNews, local news, NPR, CBS etc to all obey their command?

It's absolutely amazing and infuriating to watch.

You are absolutely right, and I've said this myself. Not gonna happen...the only bone Bammy MIGHT throw him is a deal for a couple of townhall meetings, with a pre-screened audience.

Because he's so busy saving the country, dontcha know.

He ended with saying the next 10 days would be the most crucial— would SC coalesce around a real conservative or a moderate? He stressed the importance of a conservative who would be able to articulate the conservative message in debates.

OK—now I am LATE! ;^)
