Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich to Appear at Tea Party Forum in Winter Park Saturday
Posted on 01/28/2012 6:44:55 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
Newt Gingrich will attend a presidential candidate forum Saturday in Winter Park, site of a tea party rally.
The rally, one of three events by Tea Party Express today, will be held in front of Aloma Church at 1:30 p.m. The church is at 1815 State Road 436.
It is also the location for the First Awake! Presidential Candidate Forum and Q&A. So far, Gingrich is the only candidate who has committed to attend.
Amy Kremer, head of Tea Party Express, said her group's bus tour, which started in Jacksonville Saturday morning, will make its third and final stop of the day in West Palm Beach, at 1302 Parker Ave.
The bus tour continues Sunday. See itinerary here.
This is a great opportunity to inform the American people that there is a free-market solution to get the economy on the right track and that the presidents actions have not accomplished what he has promised, Kremer concluded
Cincinatus' Wife might be able to answer that question. I pinged her to this post.
Maggie’s post points out that Newt has been with us from the start. Can you get the clip to tea party “leaders”
Rebellion is Brewing.
Sarah and Newt have read the tea leaves.
I have the same feeling in the pit of my stomach as I do when I'm watching my nephew 'come back' from being behind in a tennis match - I think Maalox stock has gone up because of me :-) Go Newt!!
Get the clip to them and then CONTRAST it with whatever Romney was doing at that time ....running to the left of Kennedy or some such thing.
The contrast is GLARING!
Outstanding idea. Nothing like a good timeline to make a case!
Rooster, this is exactly the perception that has appeared. Romney is simply throwing money around, but there is no message, no connection to the hearts and minds of the voters. We need to remember that this is a Republican primary. Republicans see the world quite differently from liberals. We value substance. Romney’s attacks are more about destroying Newt than connecting and conveying a real message to the voters. This is why he is having such a difficult time getting to 40% approval, even though he is spending such a tremendous amount of money.
Romney’s support is bought. Newt’s support is felt. Two very different drivers.
CW, I am all set for you to run for office. Thx for all you do! Now. About Newt. Heard the $5 million extra never showed up, from the Vegas backer. Anyone know anything more about that? False report maybe, intended to demoralize?
Wrote a letter to Santorums campaign last night BEGGING him to resign. I urge all Freepers to do the same today.A Saturday night or Sunday MORNING 'suspension' would be even MORE effective (BEFORE the Sunday morning news programs)!
Newt should have the following private conversation with Rick...
"what job in my administration would you like, if you were to announce your suspension from the race TODAY instead of Wednesday?
Maggie you ARE the best!

Just sent it to Pam Sullivan, the Tea Party gal in Florida — to their communications director. Hopefully they will pick it up.
just in case they didn’t already receive the link, I sent it to Newt.org
Yeoman’s work! Thank you, sir or madam.
Newt! The first Tea Partier! 1994
House Minority Whip Gingrich and 7th District congressional candidate Brenda Fitzgerald throw mock tea crates into the Chattahoochee River on April 15, 1994, as part of a "Taxpayer's Tea party" in Roswell, Georgia.
Don’t forget to send it to Sarah and even Rush.
thanks . . . consider it done, sent to Sarah & Rush
I got an Amy Kremer e-mail this morning but there is no candidate’s name attached ... are they not backing Newt in FL?
Republican rally ‘ teas ‘ off on rising taxes
Boston Herald (MA) - Saturday, April 16, 1994

As Bay Staters rushed to beat the tax return deadline, Republican Newt Gingrich led a Boston waterfront rally against high taxes and government waste.
As part of the noon event, eight rallygoers in headbands, feathers and warpaint re-enacted the 1773 Boston Tea Party and threw wooden tea crates in the harbor. It offended some American Indians.
But organizers said they didn’t mean to offend Native Americans. They argued they were staging the historical event to demonstate how angry people are about high taxes today.
The Georgia congressman bashed President Clinton as a tax-and-spend ring leader and said taxpayers will have to work until May 5 before “you get to work for any kind of income for your own family.”
He urged citizens to take action, saying, “Government only gets as big and taxes only get as high as citizens tolerate.”
Taxes way down the list of voter concerns, poll shows
Houston Chronicle - Wednesday, April 13, 1994
Author: THOMAS B. EDSALL, Washington Post
Christine Todd Whitman, the Republican victor in New Jersey, came from 20 points behind to defeat the incumbent, Democrat Jim Florio, after she pledged to cut state tax burdens substantially.
“I worked for a month on the Whitman campaign, and we won that race on the tax issue,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, who noted that Whitman took less popular stands on welfare and crime than did Florio.
“The (Democratic) left bragged about how Florio (who raised taxes) was going to be the prototype of the Clinton re-election campaign,” Norquist said. “They lost for precisely the reason that the public does care about taxes.”
A number of conservative and Republican leaders are planning demonstrations for Friday to revive the issue.
House Minority Whip Newt Gingrich , R-Ga., and Norquist are organizing re-enactments of the 1773 Boston Tea Party in Boston, Indianapolis, San Diego, Atlanta and Washington. Norquist said smaller demonstrations, many to collect signatures for anti-tax referenda in various states, will be held at post offices.
“It’s not as hot as in the late ‘70s, but it does help us a lot to remind voters which party raises taxes,” Gingrich said. “You don’t have the kind of bracket creep pressure you had in the 1970s (before the system was indexed to inflation), but wherever taxes have been on the ballot, they (proponents of lower taxes) have won, and where Republicans have made taxes a campaign theme, they have won.”
Republican National Committee Chairman Haley Barbour said he plans to speak in San Francisco on Friday, and “my message will be very plain: Look at your tax return and decide whether you are getting your money’s worth.”
