    Open Letter via Human Events ^ | December 22, 2012 | Newt Gingrich
    To Chairman Reince Priebus, Thank you for inviting me to present an analysis for the Republican National Committee about the current challenges Republicans face at every level. Our working together goes all the way back to your early years in politics. I enjoyed doing events with you in Wisconsin and admired the work you did in helping Scott Walker become Governor. I was delighted when you became RNC Chairman and I know how much you accomplished in the last two years rebuilding RNC finances and developing a better ground game. Your creation of the Growth and Opportunity Project chaired by...

    Newt Gingrich is working with RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to develop a 6 to 9 month planning group to reinvigorate the GOP for 2014 and 2016 and beyond. Tough, major changes are required to match the Dems entrenched political machines and coalitions.
  • Gingrich: GOP Must ‘Accommodate and Deal With Reality’ on Same-sex Marriage

    Former GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich reportedly said Thursday that conservatives and the Republican Party need to “accommodate and deal with (the) reality” of a “big wave of change” sweeping America—and that “gay relationships will be legal, period” in a number of states by 2014. In an interview published Thursday by the liberal Web site, “The Huffington Post,” Gingrich reportedly said that both he and the Republican Party could accept a distinction between a “marriage in a church from a legal document issued by the state,” with the latter being acceptable, according to the Web site. The publication indicated that...

    Republicans are in danger of losing their power and Democrats could become a near-permanent majority if the GOP doesn’t conduct a major overhaul on its party operations, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has warned. … Gingrich said there are 25 issues the party should address, including more work to include minority communities, a push for the party to compete in big cities and a refusal to ignore parts of the country that lean Democratic. …

  • Chris Matthews: No Matter How Good the News, Bush Doomed to Go Down

    Today Show/NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    by Mark Finkelstein June 27, 2006 The Seer of MSNBC hath spoken: no matter how good the news might be now for President Bush, he will be in worse shape come the November elections. That was Chris Matthews' reading of the entrails on this morning's Today show. Guest-hosting David Gregory interviewed him, and, sounding the same theme we saw over at this morning's Early Show, cast the controversy over the latest leak of an anti-terror program not as a threat to national security, but as "this attack on the New York Times." Gregory teed up this softball for Matthews: "The...

    I know we like to post news stories on this board and go OMG OMG OMG teh udder side teh suXorZ!!11! It's rare that anyone really writes anything somewhat original so, here, I'll do something like that. I'm amazed at some of the twists that are going on in political and legal life right now. So much so that I really think it's worth commenting on. In some ways, we're going in the absolute wrong direction. Now before you get a knee jerk reaction and say i'm a "traitor" or some DUmmie here to quiety say "It's because of Bu$hco...

    Washington Times ^ | 10/15/04 | James G. Lakely
    Sen. Mark Dayton is being mocked back home for closing his Capitol Hill office because of his professed fear of a terrorist strike, with his state's largest newspaper calling him a "Cassandra," a "flake" and a "little chicken."     The Minnesota Democrat's action has "been the talk of talk radio around here," said Randy Wanke, communications director for the Minnesota Republican Party.     A frequent topic on the airwaves last month was the senator's boycott of Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi's address to Congress. Republicans say Mr. Dayton is merely living up to his 90 percent lifetime rating by the liberal...
