Newt Gingrich promised ahead of the Republican presidential debate in Arizona on Wednesday night that voters will witness the return of big solutions Gingrich and that he plans to leave the negativity backstage.
I think youre going to see the person Ive been in 15 out of 17 debates, which is focus on the big solutions, talk with the American people and try to stay out of the kind of negativity that unfortunately has characterized way too much of this race, Gingrich said on Fox News when asked what kind of candidate people can expect to see at the Mesa, Ariz., debate.
Gingrich explained that his daughters, Kathy Lubbers and Jackie Cushman, had expressed worries about the negative tone that the recent GOP debates had taken on.
They were concerned, correctly so, that the weight of negative advertising by Romney had drawn us into a kind of back-and-forth that wasnt particularly helpful, the former House speaker said. I think what people want to know is, are you capable of solving the countrys problems, are you willing to change Washington decisively?
He added, My two daughters Kathy and Jackie wanted to see me focus more on the big solutions that will make their lives and our grandchildrens lives better, and not to get involved in the normal back-and-forth between candidates.
Wednesdays debate, hosted by CNN and the Republican Party of Arizona, is scheduled to be the last showdown before Super Tuesday.
Too bad the debate will be about rubbers and the devil.
Big ideals = Big Spending
Satan made you post that.
we going to mars now,newt?

so we get the progressive whiner who is barely holding off crazy ron for last place?...good deal
My prayers are for Newt and the very survival of our country.
President Newt Gingrich—”Our beloved republic deserves nothing less.”
Santorumbots already here. Go, Newt!
Obviously Satan has now possessed your keyboard!
Yeah, maybe Newt is going to propose some kind of Star Wars base on the moon or something crazy like that.
So let's just keep killing unborn children, fornicating and committing adultery and sodomy.
Newt’s big ideas will be to outlaw internet gambling and bomb Iran and Gaza. It’s contributor payback time while he is still afloat.
Newt's BIG ideas are to grow the economy. He spoke 30 minutes in an ad that will air in Super Tuesday states.
I'm sure you ignored it. ... Here it is in Breaking News.
And here it is again.
You SantoBots are nasty.
No I am just saying Newt won’t have an opportunity to go into his big ideas because the moderators probably will take the debate discussion a whole other direction.
If Satan invading America isn’t a big idea then I don’t know what is.
No matter what he’s asked, Newt just needs to say “this is a nonsense question” and transition directly into a big idea.
