Skip to comments.CPAC 2012: Newt Gingrich hits the reset button.
Posted on 02/11/2012 10:49:12 PM PST by true believer forever
No one can say they dont know what Newt Gingrich will do after his inauguration. Hes got big plans
He pledged to have a full list of his proposed executive orders and presidential findings published online by October, so that every voter will know exactly what theyre getting. He wants every Republican candidate to campaign with him on a pledge to hit the next Congress in a monster jam session that repeals the job-killing centralized corruption of ObamaCare, Dodd-Frank, and Sarbanes-Oxley by the time hes sworn in
and thats just an appetizer.
Within two hours of plopping his Dilbert calendar and family photographs on the Resolute Desk, hell have signed an executive order to cashier every one of the Obama czars. Then hell sign one to approve the oil pipeline from Canada to Houston. By lunch, hell have moved the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Next up would be re-instituting Ronald Reagans Mexico City policy, to forbid spending money to subsidize abortion overseas
By the time ex-President Obama lands in Chicago, he aims to have repealed 40 percent of Obamas government.

Republicans must not want an actual conservative..
They didnt want Michele Bachmann either..
Why would anybody vote for a synthetic democrat..(Romney)..
Romney is the New Juan McLaim...

--Newt Gingrich, CPAC, February 10, 2012
"The left is not made up of friends and allies. It's made up of competing parasites."
I sure do like the sound of that... Can you imagine any other republican saying that -- We need to teach the Republican Establishment a lesson? sure do like that.
I really Sarah, but if she endorsed Santorum, I’d discard her opinion like a # on bar napkin.
I’m a staunch defender of Palin. I haven’t forgotten the Tucson defamation crap.
I haven’t either, and just very recently, Diane Sawyer, in announcing something about Giffords, noted Sarah Palin’s target on her district... there are bottom feeders, and there are bottom feeders...

LOL. True dat!
AWESOME post, Marguerite! Great Thomas Purcell quote, too.
Kind of a one size fits all requirement.
I don't need retraining. I've got a masters' plus about 30 more grad hours, in electrical/electonic engineering. I've got over 30 years experience in the defense industry, much of it at the "cutting edge", in the sense that much of my work was done in either the pre-proposal, or development stages of programs, or in internal R&D.
What I need it a job, making systems to whack the bad guys, or protect the good guys, or train them. I'm long term unemployed. Long being 14 months. I apply for at least a half dozen jobs a week, often more. I'm not stuck with one location either, anywhere in Texas, or even Oklahoma, will do. I've even applied for 2 jobs (which were really the same one with two different companies) in Nebraska and one in Kansas. Have had two on site interviews (which were the about the best matches of the jobs I've applied for) which were no more than 10 miles apart in the DFW "mid cities" area, and a half dozen or so phone screening interviews. But offers? None, nada, zip.
I got Clinton-sized and was out of work for 5 months, and really only looked seriously for about 3 months of that (had a good severance package). Now I'm been Obamified, and I've been out for 14 months, with not as much severance, since I had not been at the 2nd employer but half as long and they gave us 60 days notice, while the previous one chose to pay us for an extra 60 days above and beyond the severance ammount. Obama has been much worse than "I loathe the military" Billy Jeff.
>> bottom feeders
Thanks for the heads-up, I think...
The Admin is milking that gunshot wound to Mrs Giffords’ head.
A Conservative Federal judge was murdered that day, not to forget the other murdered and injured victims.
I have tremendous respect for Mr and Mrs Giffords. I understand Mr Giffords expressed some unfortunate political remarks, but that’s incidental noise. Her recovery is inspiring. She’s a sweetheart. (Screw ya’ all who wanna’ give me crap about my opinion on this matter. Seriously, FO.)
I don’t know if I can post an article from November 2011.
Purcell’s article is awesome.
I so hope he can get the nomination. I do believe he’s what we need right now. Romney will manage our decay. He’ll do a Bain Capital on our country. We need someone like Newt who will not pussyfoot around and will reverse our course over the cliff.
"With the economy in shambles from two Presidents that have overspent, and our recent President that has made a mockery of free market capitalism and the Constitution, its important people understand why Newt is the best man for the job. Here are some reasons why he should be elected and some answers to issues that stand in his way, in no particular order:
He is an idea man-- This is a common plus that is discussed on most news shows and many articles but most people dont understand what this really means, Newt is a remarkably intelligent man who constantly puts forth plans to solve problems rather than sit on purely ideological principles. While maintaining conservative principles is important, Newt is not afraid to recognize that a purely ideological position sometimes is not best for policy or practical reasons. The downside to putting ideas out in speeches and texts is that sometimes those ideas are not always good onesbut thats why we have government by consensus and Congress, and not a dictatorship. Obama fails to recognize that. He often wields the bureaucracy in an effort to legislate directly from the White House rather than govern through consensus and fails to understand that just because the President has an idea; its not always a good one.
He saved the country once before In 1996, Newt was accused of shutting down the government simply to hold to an ideological principle; but actually the reverse was true. Back then, Bill Clinton had failed to deliver on his first years in office and the country was still wallowing in a mild recession. Clinton sent another bloated and overwrought budget to the House and Newt stood up to him, recognizing that Clintons original budget would sink the country further. As a result, Clinton was forced to submit budget after budget to Congress until he could strike a deal that would preserve a smaller government. Newt stuck to his guns and for a period government services were shut down. But what was the alternative? More government and more recession? Instead, the government was kept at bay in growth and the economy began to quickly recover. The economy expanded and America quickly became a nation of profits and successnot because of Clinton but because of Newt holding ground on government spending. The party lost some seats in the next election, as well as Newt, and some say it led to Clintons reelection, but Newt made sure the country came first. For this reason alonethat country comes before politicsyou could argue that Newt should be President today. Keep in mind, he worked with Democrats to reform welfare in 1996 and cut capital gains while still presenting a balanced budget for the President to sign in 1998.
He is experienced but not an insider Right now the Presidency needs a managed and careful hand to restore the nation to power. Obama has had little experience before taking office and it shows. His choice of people to counsel and run the government has been poor at best, and his foreign policy has been described as amateurish. Newt has a long history of government experience to bring the government back together from being divided along ideological lines. He will restore some stability to international relations, patch up damaged alliances and settle our scores with enemies quickly and efficiently. Newt also is not a true insider, he worked to pass legislative reform in 1995 that put Congressional entitlements on the same parity as private business, making Congress accountable to the same laws private industry are accountable to. As a result, many party old timers were frustrated with Newts leadership and contributed to many ethics complaints against him, and was constantly attacked by the media. You know you are doing something right, when everyone is after you on both sides of the aisle.
He will destroy Obama in debates We have already seen how well Newt has done against other candidates, and proven that the American electorate are not sheeple. His popularity has risen directly with his solid platform, ideas and presentation. Put him in front of America and he will do well to show how Obama has damaged our international prestige and foundered the national economy. Even better, his solid grasp of the issues will put the novice Obama to shame and ensure not only that Republicans will win the White House but flip the senate to red providing a truly consolidated government. Newt will show America that elections dont always go to the guy with the best ads or the most polished marketing, but the best man for the job.
He is not afraid of the mediathis is probably one of the most important facts on why we should vote for Newt. When faced with gotcha questions and setup arguments he goes after the questioner rather than try to provide a politically correct answer. Even better, when faced with PC questions and political issues, he gives an intelligent and concise answer as to why the questioner is wrong or the argument is flawed. Always brilliant and well-spoken, he is the perfect man to counter the media monster. Bette still, with his long history in government and government service he is fully vetted and there are few skeletons in his closet that the media can hang him on."
