Skip to comments.Gingrich: busy first day in Oval office if elected.
Posted on 02/10/2012 9:47:08 PM PST by true believer forever
Before an approving crowd of thousands at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the former House speaker laid out a cluttered schedule that would repudiate "at least 40 percent of (President Barack Obama's) government on the opening day."
"When the Congress comes in (in early January) it will stay in session and by January 20th, it will have repealed 'Obamacare,'" Gingrich said to a loud roar, referring to the president's landmark legislation that has helped provide coverage for tens of millions of uninsured Americans.
Also going under the axe would be the Dodd-Frank bill on Wall Street reform and the Sarbanes-Oxley bill on corporate accountability reform.
"That afternoon on the very first day, we should sign the repeal of all three. That's a reasonable start."
He also would immediately approve a controversial Canada-US oil pipeline, "abolish all of the White House czars," and shift the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

bttt...watched and loved the speech
Whew. I’m actually amazed that one day would suffice to undo almost half of it. Assuming that the lame duck Obama doesn’t try to get revenge in advance by issuing something like a literal million EOs.
Keep them coming!
Checking the UK and European news and he is still off the radar.
Soon as I find an article on Newt I’ll post it.
His speech was EVERYTHING that is best about America.
Newt did good this afternoon. Quite a few people are still smiling at the thought of that amazing first day.
It’s expected to co-opt the health care of tens of millions of Americans, a great deal of whom lost their private coverage due to Obamacare burdens.
A great start that would put back confidence back in our economy so businesses can start to think about growing their business and hiring people. Get rid of agencies like the EPA and the onerous regulations they issue and we will see a huge turn around.
She was so adorable wasn’t she? She reminded me, with a few of her inflections, like someone giving an address in a high school auditorium. She was obviously scared out of her mind... but I have seen her many times, and she is genuine. I mean genuine. She looks at people, actually listens without trying to look she is listening, and she touches people, on their elbows, I saw her straighten one old lady’s sweater before she went out into the cold.
There are some major issues - like how to get Dana Perino’s hair on her head? And get her wardrobe at least into the late early 90s. I think she is afraid to go out on the campaign on her own because of the exmistress stuff she is likely to encounter...
In my prayers!!
Mine too. Keep the faith.
God be with Newt Gingrich.
He has to win this.
Amen and amen!!
I think he knows enough about DC too, that he is trying to pre-empt another lame duck or end of the year session like last year’s fiasco and before, where all kind of stuff was done late at night... As the incoming President, he wants Congress in session on January 3rd, and the legislation written for him to sign on Inauguration Day... he says he will need a strong house and senate of conservatives behind him... What if he could actually do that... If his calcs are right, and that first day undoes 40% of barack’s agenda, then there’s hope again... hope again.
I’ve watched his speech four times already!
Watching the others live.. Newt’s was by far the best of the three candidates’ speeches! There was really something to it.
With the current gridlocked Congress, lame-ducking will go nowhere.
>> bttt...watched and loved the speech
bttt to your bttt.
Newt IS the man for the job. I believe he can unite the Country and get us back on track. He’ll pick up the “Reagan Democrats”.
Newt is easily the most presidential of all 4 contenders.
It doesn’t take much to basically sign intentions. The actual bills will probably take somewhat longer to become law.
AFP is a French news service.
>> Newts was by far the best of the three candidates speeches!
Romney has no depth, Santorum is a pissed off ideologue, and I forgot Paul was competing.
Newt in my opinion is the only one equipped with the full breadth of competency necessary to save the Country.
Well, at least he won't be out pretending to be Tiger Woods.
Mitt Romney has more positions than the kama sutra!
How are they going to overcome the Dem filibuster in the Senate? I doubt there will be 60 Republicans in the Senate, a net gain of 14 seats from today. Maybe 55. They will have to have the stones to change Senate rules to prevent a filibuster before the session starts. I doubt McConnell and the gang even want to repeal the law, much less mess with Senate rules.
I don’t know. I guess that’s where Newt armtwisting will come in, and maybe there will be some comity for a new president, a honeymoon, like everybody wanted for barack.
Four times! I’ve watched twice!
He has to win.
He’s truly the only one who can save and restore our Republic.
The others do not have his depth, sincerity, knowledge or ability.
Yeah, but I wanted to start getting that first-day vision out and about, and they were the only one, besides the Houston Chronicle, writing about it. That is probably all the attention it will get... the first paragraphs are pretty good descriptively...
LOL. Romney is such a pretender and fraud. I can’t believe that more folks don’t see right through him.
I don’t get it either. He reminds me of the peddlers of old with their ‘miracle cures.’
Yes! That’s it. Old time snake oil salesman, traveling from town to town!
Yep, that’s what Rinomey is: a snakeoil salesman.
How much has he spent thus far? $56,000,000?
$16 Million in slimebag attack ads on Newt Gingrich. (Of course the SuperPACS are not his money (laugh-laugh).
I can’t keep up with his total spent.
(I thought it was $18 million on attack ads (destruction ads) against Newt??)
Right....he has no control over ‘his’ SuperPacs.
Right, since they’re run by his close Mormon pals.
yep. He talked about that, and got a standing ovation...
hey, i sent you the pic for the endoresment list in your mail, and I hope to pull the text together this weekend... so maybe monday or tuesday at the latest...
President Newt Gingrich’s Executive Order #1: All Executive Orders issued during the past four years are hereby revoked.
The press won't mention it because he will have to use the same tactics Obama used to implement a lot of it and they want to be able to express outrage at how Newt's trampling on the "sacred" Constitution and by=passing the "holy" checks and balances.
Youre bordering on worship.
Meat real meat, what has been hiding behind that facade of a mild history professor. Let it all out Newt, go for their throats, rip out their hearts, tear off their family jewels, keep making them hurt until they curl up in a ball and admit their political philosophy sucks.
I saw the speech and enjoyed it.
I am glad I voted for Newt in my Primary. He articulated my hopes for Our Nation in the CPAC speech. If he can achieve even HALF of what he said on the first day, it would be good for America.
An excellent plan for the first day in office.
The speech was great. Pray for some big donors to surface and a brokered convention!
Has to be 61 Republicans in the Senate because of Maverick McCain. Newt is the one that is most likely to deliver that super majority, the others have barely mentioned why it is necessary for repealing the (non)Affordable Health Care bill.
Good speech—BUT, the Fix is in—Its Mittens all the way—the back Room GOP have selected him.
its his turn at bat. Still, I think Newt would do better in the long run—just as I think Palin would be better.
