May I suggest that folks attend this event wearing their new Rick Santorum sweater vest?
Newt team needs to join the Rick Santorum team NOW and defeat the Romney/Obama team in AZ & MI
If members of the Santorum team would take a step back and look at the scene, Newt’s team did that weeks ago, by running no ads and making no visits (except for the debate) in either of those states.
Newt’s too busy other places. He’ll make the ten percent he needs without campaigning. Both of those states are a wash. MI because it’s proportional and not worth the effort for so few delegates, and AZ because of the large Mormon population that only Romney money can buy.
I suggest you GFY, moron.
Newt Gingrich Campaign Rally, Federal Way, Washington February 24 2012
“Newt Gingrich is the only one who has it right. What we need to do is not prop up the old unsustainable Wall Street - Washington D.C. axis. Nor do we need massive government social programs to prop up workers. Neither is free market. Neither will work. What we need to do to fix the economy is to support new businesses and help small businesses expand.
Newt has the boldest proposal, per the Wall Street Journal, to jump start the economy. He would bring the capital gains rate down to 0%, and reduce taxes on everyone. As he points out, it is not “revenue neutral” in the short run. But in the long run, the increased revenues from his plan more than make up for any tax cuts, as they did in the 90’s.
With the capital gains rate reduced to 0, capital would pour into the marketplace. This would allow many new business to get started and small businesses to expand. As small business creates 70% of the jobs in America, unemployment would fall immediately. Main Street, not Wall Street, drives the economy. Economic activity would pick up as people got back to work, and our real wealth, GDP, would sky-rocket. Moreover, tax revenues would increase dramatically, allowing us to get rid of deficits and balance the budget.
Millions of new workers would pay into social security. Thousands of new businesses would pay taxes. And hundreds of millions of new customers would pay sales taxes. People would have jobs, which would give them money to spend, which would profit businesses and shareholders who put up the capital, while revenues would increase to the government. This vibrant economy would benefit everyone. It would spiral upward. It is a win win.
And then there are Newt’s plans for energy development which could give us untold riches just by being good stewards of the land and using our God-given resources. Look at North Dakota right now. Think Dubai. Or take his plan to write off all new equipment purchased in a year, which would instantly give us the best equipped workforce in the nation. The sky is the limit as to what we can accomplish if we quit regulating things and killing them, and start innovating and producing them.
So why do the other candidates lack the foresight, and vision to implement such bold plans? Because they are tied down to the old special interests. Santorum sold out to K Street a long time ago, and would be controlled by big labor. Romney would of course represent the wealthy Wall Street corporations that have contributed so much to his campaign already. Only Newt would represent we the people rather than the special interests and do what is best for the nation as a whole. This election will be won or lost on the economy, which is why Newt is the only candidate with the rock solid economic chops to beat Obama come November.”
ok, I was going to post about the same thing. But maybe a little nicer... lol
Santorum provides absoNEWTly no solutions. He is a follower not a leader. Do yourself a favor and look towards the leader in the race. www.newt.org
He’s posting his drivel on all Newt threads.
OK, I’ve lost my cool for a second :)
Great find. I thought it would be a small clip, but it’s the entire campaign event. Thanks!
1) His data is always factually correct.
2) He makes his points without insulting the adversaries.
SPOT ON, Marguerite!! The fact that he doesn't have to lie/distort or tear down his opponents speaks volumes of Speaker Gingrich!!
WA caucus is March 3rd.
Bookmark for my viewing pleasure! Thanks Marguerite!
NEWT Can't win so VOTE for RICKens
Or we'll be stuck wearing OBAMA's MITTens
That is nonsensical, because the vote for Gingrich would accomplish the same thing, but that's the perception. In fact, the only reason Santorum was able to rise from obscurity by "winning" nonbinding delegates in Minnesota and Missouri, is because he was a beneficiary of neither Gingrich nor Romney campaigning there. Outside of Midwest / labor union states, Santorum has hardly any appeal.
The plan is to rack up delegates in large proportional states and win large all-or-nothing states. To that extent, Santorum's "mini-surge" can be a detriment, but in some states it could also be of benefit since a large part of Santorum voters are much closer to big-government Romney than to small-government/Tea-Party Gingrich, so as long as that part keeps voting for Santorum, it's fine - they don't give delegates to Romney.
It's important to notice that while many polls show both Romney and Santorum fighting for the "win," they are still only getting around 30% of votes and, with Paul at usually stable 10% or single digits, this should leave about 30% to Gingrich... but there remains a large percentage of "undecided" who may be swayed by the polls and the notion that Santorum needs their "strategic vote" to "win" in the state to "deny" delegates to Romney.
Since "winning" the state like MI or AZ is irrelevant (except for bragging rights) and this is the wrong kind of "strategic vote" thinking - "natural" Gingrich voters (at least on FR) should be educated about this.
Then there are the states: Look at the fiasco's in Florida, Virginia to name two. Do any of the states have a clue (Including Indiana....(He's on, He's off, He's on)
The media has contributed to the confusion. OTOH they certainly have no responsibility in straightening out the GOP..National and State lack of clarity.
We’re not going to.
