I watched it and it was superb. I’m really hoping that Newt can gain back some traction.
Andrew Brietbart was really fired up too!
But we need the House and the Senate, too.
I only heard Newt but loved that he includes specifics. I’ve watched some of his other speeches in recent weeks when I can on CSPAN and I don’t really watch the other two but when I do, specifics are sorely lacking.
We can disagree about who should be the nominee, but few can strike up the conservative fire like Newt, and regardless of the election I hope he (and Santorum, Cain, and others in the same regard) become an important part of the government going forward. We really need good conservative voices to help put the message out and walk the talk.
I’d even give Ron Paul a job...as Minister of Downsizing. Let him cut that trillion dollars (military excluded) and then we’ll talk about the next trillion!
An exciting REAL CONSERVATIVE ticket would be great!!
How about GINGRICH/WEST?
Did he rip on Obama about this healthcare mandate and his latest supposed dodge to make the insurance company pay instead? I wanted to see at least one candidate speak on that news. Maybe I can catch him on a C-SPAN rerun. I lean Santorum, but Newt is the best verbal shredder of Obama.
Count me in as someone who wants to see Newt get his mojo back. It’s tough because now Santorum will be getting a fair share of the oxygen and he earned it. We’ll see, as long as Romney loses.
Georgia Right to Life just endorsed Newt and santorum. Yes, Newt’s speech was excellent. NOONE else will do but Newt!
The speech was good but I want Newt to show more fire, up energy! His list of supporters was very good and he should mention them more...todd palin, ollie north, gov perry, the karate guy, etc etc...
I am listening to it now at cspan.org.
Newt is by far the best candidate. In fact, he is a superb candidate, and I am convinced that he is THE man that this country needs in the White House at this time.
I believe that he is the only one who really has the intellect, the experience, the courage and the heartfelt commitment to (as he says) “change the trajectory of this country.” He is a brilliant, speaker and a clear thinker, with a broad and impressive knowledge of virtually all the issues that the next presidency will face.
I have read all the Newt bashing on this site for months, and to me it sounds petty, petulant and on the whole, unconvincing.
I hope and pray that the Republican voters make him the nominee, and that the American voters have the wisdom to put him into the White House in 2012.
Earlier thread and 300+ comments:
The FedX, UPS, vs Feds and illegals was SOOOOO funny.
I thought the speech was really good.
40% of Obama’s policies will be repealed by the time he lands in Chicago!
I also watched Romney, also without specifics. “Yeah, I'm a severe conservative.” OK, I was a little taken with that degree of pandering. Romney was totally uninspiring, and hit each conservative button, but without any passion at all. He did not inspire me, and I do not believe he inspired the crowd.
Mr. Newt, however, was very inspiring and received a great deal of support from the crowd. He provided specifics about the economy, jobs, taxes, our Constitution. No doubt, he can certainly give a great speech and I also think he can inspire Republicans to rethink their positions.
What is Sanatorium proposing about gas prices?
I payed $87 to fill up last night.
I did. It was Newt at his best. He outlined a plan with solutions and know-how. He looked and IS presidential.
... unlike the other two, who spoke earlier.
The main reason I support Newt, his plan to reform the Courts!
He didn’t FINALLY reveal his economic plan, it’s always been on his site and he’s talked about at just about every speech I’ve seen of his.
