Gingrich: The key 'R' word is Republican, not Romney

The key 'R' word is Republican, not Romney

With all the efforts to understand the recent election defeat, a lot of the focus has been on former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and his campaign.

That is exactly the wrong way to begin analyzing the outcome of the 2012 campaign.

The focus on Romney as a candidate is profoundly misleading for those who want to prepare for future Republican victories.

Any analysis of recent Republican presidential results will reveal a systemic failure which can’t be ascribed to Romney.

The last clear Republican presidential victory was in 1988 when Vice President George H W Bush won with 53.37 percent over Dukakis.

Since then we have lost the popular vote in five out of six elections for president and dramatically underperformed in re-electing a president with the lowest margin in the history of presidential re-elections. (Other incumbents were defeated for re-election but none was re-elected with a narrower margin than President George W. Bush in 2004.)

Consider the results:

You campaign with a STUPID message like that ... when 75-percent of America Adults are TERRIFIED of losing their jobs ... and you get one of the Primary reasons for Romney's well-deserved defeat.

Many Republicans - especially the GOPe types - seem to think that the benefits of lower taxes and fewer regulations on small businesses are self-evident to the voting public.

They aren't.

When the public hears that kind of talk, especially with Democrats around to re-frame it, they just feel like the GOP is making sure the "haves" get a better deal than they already have. To them, the small businessman is not a hero - he's the jerk who drives a Mercedes because he charges them $1.00 too much per shirt for dry-cleaning.

Small business has an image problem - we aren't the heroes in the working public's eyes that we like to think we are. It really isn't about Romney being a elitist country club guy - the public heard the message loud and clear that he intended to help out small business. They just didn't like it.

Surely you don't believe America voted to reelect the Marxist/Muslim usurper- the worst president in American history?

Can't you just imagine the above was the scene with Obama and his Commie staff after stealing the election through voter fraud- while Conservatives blame Romney, argue, point fingers, blather on about who to run in four years, 'starting a new party', and try to figure out how to suck up to minorities the 'next time'?

Next time? What makes you think the massive voter fraud in this last farce of an election won't be repeated? If we don't clean up our voting system, there may not be a next time. We may not see another Republican president in our lifetime

Map from Barack Obama Voter Fraud 2012

What most refuse to acknowledge is that it was unlikely that ANYBODY could have beaten the voter fraud planned and perpetrated by the Obama machine. They seem to prefer pointing fingers, blaming Romney and blathering on about who to run in 2016 and how to suck up to the minorities.

>Polls indicated that Romney was going to win the election.

>The economy is close to Great Depression era conditions, and unemployment is almost as high as when Obama entered office.

>Economic conditions became so dire after Obama took office it prompted the rise of an entire new movement, the Tea Party.

>Presidents rarely win reelection when the economy is in the tank.

>Mitt knew it too, when he was met by several thousand in that parking garage cheering him when he arrived unannounced at that airport, and he put his hand over his heart and said, 'This is how you know you've won'.

So how did Romney lose a race that numerous reputable polls and pundits predicted would be an easy win, based on historical patterns?

Massive voter fraud.

That and no other reason

Almost every major Conservative website has put out an article charging voter fraud- Breitbart, American Thinker, Atlas Shrugs, WND, The Blaze, Front Page Magazine, Fox News, The Daily Caller, Town Hall, Human Events, Canada Free Press...

We cannot wait for 2014 and 2016 to regroup and figure out new strategies. By then it will be too late. The Marxist/Muslim usurper will have completed his planned distruction of America. That's what people fail to understand.

We must act NOW.

Start with the election. If we let the Rats get away with this massive voter fraud, we're no better than a bananna republic.

We must keep digging and pounding him every day, in every way we can- phony birth certificate, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, his hidden life, records....


Col Allen West; "I don't want to see America become like Zimbabwe where people don’t trust their electoral process. If we cannot trust the integrity of the voting system then we are no longer a free republic".

Col West has opened the door.

We must fight election fraud.

It falls on ‘We the People’.

Silence is consent


The website,'Barack Obama Vote Fraud 2012' is keeping a running account of cases of voter fraud and what to do about it:

'These elections are NOT certified yet. The only way to get this investigated, much less recounted or overturned, is through the Secretary of State of each of the five key states: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. EVEN IF YOU ARE IN ANOTHER STATE you can help. But it won’t do any good to dilute our effort to challenge California or Michigan or other states. Until a major group gets involved to do more, here is the plan: Contact the Secretary of State of the state in question. See contact information below... '

Visit the website, 'Halt Voter Fraud':


'This election is not over - YET. Obama has not been elected by the Electoral College - YET. The Presidential election is being stolen from us with "Chicago Style" thuggery - and we can STOP the thieves in their tracks. But we do not have time on our side. This is our LAST chance. Don't give up. We must act now.

If massive voter fraud has occured as alleged by so many, and if the state vote counts include these FRAUDULENT votes, then is it logical to say that the entire state vote is COMPROMISED and can't be trusted? 59,000,000 Americans might agree!

The state vote is used to determine the allocation of Electors in the Electoral College which actually elects the President and Vice President.

If the vote count is FRAUDULENT, FLAWED, and CAN'T BE TRUSTED - and if the Electors have been FRAUDULENTLY allocated based on FLAWED vote counts - then WE CANNOT ALLOW THE GOVERNORS TO SIGN THEIR CERTIFICATES of ASCERTAINMENT on December 17th. We can stop this if we ACT IMMEDIATELY.


Patriots must rally NOW in the State Capitols of Harrisburg,PA - Richmond, VA - Tallahassee, FL - Columbus, OH, and Madison, WI ****** MASSIVE RALLIES ** *** PATRIOT LEADERS ORGANIZE YOUR LOCAL EFFORTS NOW, coordinate with the other PATRIOT groups as they also rally, let us know who you are and how you will respond, how we can help.

Remember the Battle of Trenton?

We can make HISTORY TODAY.'

I wonder if the Bush dynasty has been behind the scenes since Bush senior lost in 1992? The Republicans ran Bob Dole who ran a totally lackluster campaign which allowed Clinton to get in for his second term. Then George W. Bush won in 2000 and again in 2004. Remember how Bush senior got really chummy with Clinton after the 2004 tsunami? Maybe they were working out a deal, George W. had won for the second time so it would be time for a Democrat in 2008. They know that the public swings back and forth between Democrat and Republican so they probably figured that the voters would be ready for a Democrat which was to be Hillary. McCain was the willing fall guy who would let Clinton win but to everyone’s surprise Obama cut in line, so McCain had to lose to Obama. Meanwhile Romney interfered with the Bush dynasty plan so his threat had to be diminished by filling the ranks with many Republican competitiors in order to divide up the vote.

Fast forward to 2012, once again there had to be a place holder who would lose to Obama. But Romney wanted to win, he didn’t get clearance from the Bush clan. So Obama won his second term as planned and now we hear voices from the peanut gallery about how Jeb Bush would make a great candidate and the reason that Romney lost was because the Hispanic vote didn’t like him. Well, guess who is married to a Latina? Jeb Bush. He also has two half-Hispanic kids and the Bush family have warm friendly feelings for Hispanic immigrants legal and illegal.

Stay tuned for the next episode of the Bush Dynasty Chronicles.

Who has been the leader of the Rockefeller Republicans since the death of Nelson Rockefeller? Could Bush sr. have taken the place of Nelson Rockefeller?

Newt is right. I don’t know about his prescriptions, but his analysis brings to light problems that many people ignore or aren’t aware of.

Slammed Romney on Bain? The eGOP wasn’t listening, evidently you weren’t either. Newt asked realistic questions about Romney and Bain, vetting a serious future campaign issue. Everyone went nuts, shhhhhhhh don’t talk about Bain.......well, Obama kicked Romney’s ass regarding Bain and Bain is what beat him. Newt knew what was coming.

Get back to me when the “R” word is “republican” instead of “Republican”. I doubt most of them could give you a proper definition of a republic without Google.

How could the GOP have won? So much hatred. If Michelle or Herman (or any of the other seven) had written this article the haters of them would fly in here here like flies fly to horsepoop. This forum supported Newt, so shut up you insects!
