Newt explains what the Republicans need to do to beat Obama

Forget last night’s interview. Newt was much better tonight on Hannity and laid out exactly what Republicans need to do and explained why they have much more power than they realize. The interview begins at the 4:00 mark.



Also here is Newt from a couple of days ago at the Reagan Library. I’ve been told he it’s great, that he discusses his thoughts on strategy going forward:

Oh well, maybe when the pain inflicted by Obama finally gets to the unbearable point, Republicans will nominate a true Conservative to go into battle, instead of a spineless, weak RINO.

I am so discouraged with all politicians. I am a true conservative and my first two choices for president were Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain, but the lamestream media ruined them. At this point in time I feel we need all new politicians in both parties. The US is becoming a third world country because all our politicians never vote with their constituents starting from the White House on down. God help US!

The Republicans are WEAK especially Boehner! He makes it look like he won’t give in to Obama, but in the end it’s always…YES SIR…WHATEVER YOU SAY SIR!!! Why hasn’t the GOP done anything to investigate this CORRUPTED election! The voting machines in the swing states were rigged by GEORGE SOROS…he owns these machines! Maybe the Republicans should go by way of the WHIGS!!! We need a NEW Conservative party with young leaders like Ryan, Rubio, Cruz and Paul to lead!!! We need strong Constitutional leadership! These OLDER and STALE guys need to GO!!! With them it’s the same old RINO crap! The GOP is going over the RINO CLIFF!

disagree. Older is always wiser. Mitt was older but lacked the true gutt for the job. He needed to fight obama and he didnt. Newt is older and wiser and would have fought obama and communicated to the people better. Newt would have won. and to hear that he was nominated for speaker of the house a few weeks ago and didnt get a second and now we are left with Bohner the weakling…………..God is teaching us all a lesson of sorts.

…Well this is the “guy” who should have been nominated (even if was destined to lose to the election) to debate Obama (Liberals) vs. (Conservatives) for those three debates. Mitt Romney was tough as nails but he failed to show up in debate 2 and got owned in debate in #3. What a disaster… …And what’s so sad: 10-20 years from now nobody is going to remember Romney (Dukakis) (outside of the mainstream); but we’ll all remember Newt Gingrich. …That guy who WAS the former speaker of the house that passed the Contract with America WHICH included welfare reform DURING a liberal president and who WAS “Person of the Year” and who ushered in a new Republican revolution to take control of both the house and senate. And the Bob Dole’s, John McCain and now Mitt Romney’s (and guys like them) ‘club’ continue to conquer and dictate like a snake… Read more »

You bet my both elderly father and mother both noticed the pre-face -post face of the candidate.

If he was bald, fat he would have been gone following the New Hampshire primary.

Apparently, you have to be over 6 feet tall, have a good looking face and a large backing…and your a shoe-in.

I would love Gingrich to (at least) try to run in 2016.

We can probably assume it’s Hillary vs.

1. Rubio
2. Jiindhall
3. Ryan
4. Paul (the son)
5. Bush

There’s the candidates.

Truth is, Bush will probably get the nominee and if you ask the American people who they would rather be president.

Rubio is too young, so I suspect the team is:

Bush/Rubio

…And that’s going to be a disaster

After reading some of the posts here and at the risk of being called a “liberal” again…..Look….Newt is without a doubt an intellectual power house.

AND, his arrogance and ego in this last primary was stunning in its display. His attacks on Romney became THE talking points of the Demokrats. You may think of this as a compliment to his intellectual capability but they point more to a person who placed personal ambition ahead of all else including damaging his running mates to a significant degree.

I supported Newt in the primaries. He is far from perfect, but he was the only one I believed who could have whipped Obama.

Newt is wrong on one point. There are RINO establishment people in the GOP who are intent on removing conservatives from the Party. Anyone who denies is clearly out of touch and Newt doesn’t get it on that point.

I do like everything else he’s doing. Finding better ways of using technology and reaching different demographics is an important one. But one question that wasn’t answered is how to fight the corrupt media. And also how to get debates that are moderated by conservatives. Why isn’t there at least ONE debate moderated by a conservative? The liberals believe that the current moderators are “neutral” which is a laugh. Right there, the next candidate needs to enforce at least one debate on better terms.

I totally agree. However, I’ll go one step further, Americans, Repubs specifically, were/are fools for not selecting him as the nominee. Newt IS a fighter and would have done much better against Obummer then Mittens. If you look at the exit polling from the election it’s clear that Obummer won the women, youth, Black and Hispanic vote, all because of their preconceived idea that Mittens would take away their birth control and food stamps–all of which are mostly social issues. My idea was that if Newt was the nominee, social issues would not have been so prevalent because they were not major issues of his platform—“it’s the economy and the size of government stupid.” Ultimately, if he would have won the Presidency we would have had a better chance of getting this country’s fiscal house in order and then, after he accomplished this, he or whoever followed him could work… Read more »

Look….lets face facts, Newt represents what is wrong with the Republican establishment.

Its not the pragmatic intellectual arguments that he makes that are wrong….its the fact that many establishment Republicans dont “live” by examples that they espouse.
For example, dont condemn Bill Clinton for his sexual indiscretion while you screwed around on your first wife.

No offense against the Evangelical wing….but abortion and homosexuality issues are not something we own….and frankly many you chose to stay home because you simply couldnt support a Mormon.
Congrats, you helped elect the “devil” you knew and all that goes with it.

Republicans are much better off looking at social issues through the prism of Constitutional Individual Liberties…rather than through a “moralistic” prism that that the “moralists” will find endless objection to and in the end fail you because of your “failing”.

Abortion is an issue in which the country has been moving decidedly to our side on. Most Americans believe that abortion is taking of a human life no matter how hard pro abortion folks have tried to redefine it as products of conception or whatever their current nomenclature is. That it should be used only when the womans life is in jeopardy or for rape and incest. And for those who believe it should be allowed as birth control, they overwhelming believe it should be done before the baby becomes viable. They also are decidedly for parental notification. That is a huge change from where it was. There is a difference between homosexual rights and the right to gay marriage. I think we all can agree homosexuals should have the right to live with whom they chose. They should be able to visit loved ones in the hospital and leave… Read more »

That statement betrays a point of view that anyone can honestly question whether or not this guy is in touch with reality.

hmmm, regarding your last line, here is one too ‘I personally don’t like murder, but I shant stand in the way of a person’s choice to do it” that is how we feel about abortion sir, so please don’t ask us to water it for anyone!

madnessofjack
Guest

um….no….the electorate has decided that “abortion” as defined by Roe vs. Wade is legal.
That battle was lost in 1973.
Whether or not we like it or not isnt the point anymore.
Murder…..has also been decided by the electorate…..that issue is within the jurisdiction of the individual states and “murder” is illegal in every one of our 50 states.

That being said.
You are perfectly free to say ” I personally dont like murder, but I shant stand in the way of a persons choice to do it”
but the understanding of this electorate is that “murder” is acting in contravention of the law, no matter what state you live in.
“Abortion” no matter what your personal point of view, is NOT illegal under the law.

We may not like or approve of someones choice BUT the reality is that they still have that “right”.

nibblesyble

Let me clarify, I said I believe it is murder, not what the laws of the country indicate. Therefore I will not water it down as a ‘woman’s choice’. Nor do I entirely blame the women having them, as they have been told over and over it is no big deal as it’s a clump of cells, hey it’s your body, or this world is too cruel of a place to bring up a child ect. I will not turn a blind eye to it at any time and therefore I will never utter the words “I personally disagree with it, but I respect a woman’s choice’ ugh…it sickens me even to type it!

Conservatives believe that abortion is the taking of human life and that life should only be taken for compelling reasons such as life of the mother, rape and incest. This is the correct position to have on the issue. I don’t believe we should abandon it because of the ignorance of Akin or the inarticulateness of Mourdock. Or the fact that their wrongheadedness cost them their respective elections. To use a phrase Gingrich used in the second video, we shouldn’t “cede ground” on these crucial issues. Furthermore the tripe about Republicans wanting to outlaw a womans” right to choose” is only something an ignorant electorate can make and I recognize that many of my gender did make that leap. I’m embarrassed to say that, but let’s face facts, there are apparently a lot of ignorant women out there. We need to educate them everytime they bring it up. If Akin… Read more »

“The “choice” that pro-life conservatives want to take away from women is nothing less than infanticide. We should not be embarrassed to defend it.”

Rebecca
Guest

When I say infanticide, I am not talking about abortion in general, I am talking about abortions that are performed after the baby is viable and in particular live birth abortion. There is no cognitive disconnect. Most liberals believe in abortion on demand with no restrictions whatsoever. That is the extreme position, yet conservatives feel that they have to hide their heads for believing that life begins at conception and that if you are going to take that life there should be a compelling reason for doing so. Sounds perfectly reasonable to me. I don’t see why it is so hard to defend and as I said previously, just because 2 politicians stated their position inarticulatly or ignorantly, is no reason for us to abandon social issues.

madnessofjack
Guest
madnessofjack

yes….I’m afraid there is.
I’m not going to repost the thread, you can read it for yourself.
The position that I was criticized for was that Akin or Mourdock were better off saying something to the effect “I dont believe in abortions, but I cant block them either”.
As opposed to the utter jaw dropping, apex of stupidity they uttered.
The point I trying to make was those two seats were ours to lose….this was literally snatching defeat from the jaws of victory….and these kinds of losses hurt in more ways than one, in case you havent noticed.
We have to be smarter…we have to show a bit more intelligence than this, unlike the Demokrats we dont own voting blocks outright.

Sooooo…. the tripe was correct. And I am NOT pro abortion but conservative tripe is more annoying because it is not a solution. It makes much more sense to go the education route by stating you’d fight for the mother to be at least as educated as Bloomberg is forcing mothers to be about breast feeding in the hospital before allowing them access to formula…and even THAT would get a huge battle from the Liberals and their ignorant demo.

That so many of my gender are unable to think that one through for themselves is what is simplistic. And pathetic. Of course we need to educate people. We could start with giving my gender a remedial education in the law, so that they will not be so duped by people on the left shouting meme’s like there’s a “republican war on women”.

I believe homosexuality is a sickness, just like any other sickness. It is not normal human behavior, as we know it. I don’t pretend to know the cause of it. In that vein of thought, I neither condemn those afflicted with this sickness, nor do I condone it. I guess if I were to put it to you, in simple terms, I just don’t understand it, but that does not mean I approve of it. I accept the reality, that it exists in our society, just like I accept the reality, that pedophiles exist in our society. That doesn’t make it acceptable human behavior. Forgive me, but I don’t think homosexuality is mentioned anywhere in Scripture. Please correct me, if I am wrong on that.

What a presumptuous diatribe you went on. As I said, there is no reason for gay marriage. It wasn’t even on the radar screens of gays until the later half of the last century. To pretend that some great civil liberty will be lost now if we don’t allow gays to marry is ludicrous. They don’t have the same concerns that heterosexuals do when they engage in sex. There are people in this country now who have had to make choices based upon their beliefs concerning homosexuality. One of the examples are Catholic Adoption services that have had to close their doors because they refused to allow gay couples to adopt at their institutions. This is egregious that gays would deem it preferable that these institutions close there doors, thereby denying these children a chance at being adopted by a loving mother and father. And for what.

If what you are saying is true, then candidates like Scott Brown, Linda McMahon, Tommy Thompson, and the candidate in Hawaii should have won (along with “electable” Mitt Romney). The fixation on Murdock and Akin has become yet another talking point/strawman for beltway pundits. Somehow Murdock and Akin became responsible for the poor voter turnout, poor GOTV, and poor communication of the GOP. And, if the “evangelicals” are kicked to the curb, who does all the door knocking and phone banking? It surely isn’t those voters you are trying to attract by getting rid of the social conservatives. Go ahead and “stop” talking about these issues, b/c liberals CAN’T wait to talk about them. Here’s what happened: the liberals i.e. Obama and his campaign RAN on social issues.

They will find a thousand reasons why they will not support a not-Christian but in the end, it is simply religious bigotry. In this country, the E’s will just stay home and pray for salvation and await the Rapture. In Egypt and Nigeria, the Christians will be martyred by neighbor bigots while the Muslim will martyr himself and take a dozen souls of his hated enemies with him. It’s tradition.

Git your Facts Straight! Your comment was the typical Democrat Defense of Willy…

Newt and for the most part Republicans were not condemning Willy for his sexual indiscretions, they IMPEACHED his LYING @SS for Lying to a Grand Jury. Which also cost him his licenses to practice law at least for a period of time. The Fact that Willy’s lies were about his sexual indiscretions, RAPE, and seducing an intern, was secondary.

I don’t like it that Newt had his own sexual indiscretions at the time this was going own or at any other time, but he was carrying out his duty as speaker, regardless of what was going on in his personal life.

I just want to clarify…..Newt and conservatives in general attacked Clinton on legal grounds and on “moral” grounds.
I wasnt excusing Clintons behavior….I was questioning Newts.
If we, as conservatives, are accusing socialist “progressives” of cognitive dissonance and an acute setting of double standards….be prepared for them to search out the same behavior in us.
I’m not above “playing dirty”, just like they do……but I want it to be clearly understood that the “moral” argument is a trap….no one is invulnerable to it.
Demonizing them is fine and in fact necessary, they do that to us on a constant basis.

Just passing a lot of small bills in the House won’t work because Harry Reid will ignore them in the Senate, as he has done for years with House budgets and other legislation.

But that is why Newt suggested it…the more he ignores… the more people cannot ignore that he is obstructing! It is a game, devised by Tip O’Neil, and one the republicans should follow!

I think we lost because we fought the one too hard. In 09 we should have let the one get his tax increases, the one wanted the public option in obamacare we should have let him have it, instead of stopping the damage we should have let the damage occur and then focus on why and who is causing the damage, and here is where we should have focused all our efforts, from talk radio, internet, gop consultants, everyone should focus on explaining the damage, in this context I believe we would have won, it is still not too late, the only way liberalism can be defeated, is if it defeats itself.

Newt is a genius and Republicans would be wise to listen. They must first realize that O and these modern-day democrats are not their good old buddies they are used to dealing with. You can only negotiate with people that share the same goal. That is no longer the case.

We’re 180 degrees out of phase in this country. I keep hearing Boehner saying that O should lead. That’s not his job. Per the constitution, he is supposed to be a follower, implmenting the laws that the Congress passes. He is not a king, nor a dictator. The congress should lead, pass what it wants and let the chips fall where they may. They need to think outside their box where the Pres decides what he wants and the congress is just the enabling body. It will be tough, and it will require leadership and communication from congress, but if they would just once make bold moves and work the press more aggressively on a DAILY basis, it would become obvious that they are leading and O is the problem. Take O out of the drivers seat and put him back in his constitutional box. There will be brinksmanship, and… Read more »

Wow – Newt has the best ideas, positive ideas and valid solutions to make America healthy and prosperous.

I appreciate how he is concerned for ALL Americans and for this nation as a whole.

NOT like Obama who is interested in black muslims and marxists first and foremost.

NOT like Romney who is a Wall Street wheeler dealer and Liberal politician who doesn’t know conservatism from his back end.

The only problem I have with what Newt said is he constantly refered to a “conservative R House.” We do not have a conservative R House. Boehner has basically told the minority (as a % of the total) House Conservatives to sit down and shut up. What is left is the continued failed politics and policies of a demonstrated over and over again and again to be a disfunctional R House.

Leadership in the House could learn from this man. However, I can’t imagine Boehner asking for help. He is too self-centered and thinks he owns the place. I can’t stand John Boehner. An absolute wimp of a man, and a complete sellout. And, he sells all of us out for his own power and corruption. Tell me what is any different than John Boehner and Barack Obama. Really. Both are lying, political, power-hungry clowns.

I blame Glenn Beck and Mitt Romney for Newt’s primary demise. They both slathered him with slander. I have not watched anything from Beck since. Not one single phrase from the turncoat. What the Republican Party’s problem was with him I don’t know. He was all set to be a twice rising star. A Phoenix with an encore if you will, shot and shattered like a clay pigeon. His only mistake that I noticed during primary season was attacking Mitt’s success, right along with others. That week was my first verbal defense of Romney and his American business success. Newt would’ve done so much better had he pre-echoed what Whittle said about Romney’s success a few days ago. Now that was right…on the money. That would’ve been a double-whammy on Democrats and a killing-kindness towards Romney. How do I hate thee, lies and slander, let me count the ways. How… Read more »

I agree. I absolutely loved Herman Cain and was an avid supporter. When Herman dropped out, I re-evaluated the landscape and decided that Newt was the best alternative – even before Herman endorsed him. I agree that Newt had some ideas that were dubious over the years but I thought that he was smart enough to know what needed to be done now and articulate enough to get it done. I’ll never forget it when Beck said that if you support Newt, you are a “racist.” What a stupid and arrogant thing to say. I’m so f’n sick and tired of being called a racist because I disagree with someone. Sorry, but I feel a rant coming. And another thing. I’ve also been a strong supporter of school choice because I knew that it was the best way for minorities in inner cities to have a chance of raising their… Read more »

Yup. The Beck thing was really bad, and it was right at the same time that Romney was attacking in Florida. I haven’t watched or listened to Beck ever since. When someone is hated from all sides of the political arena, you must be doing something right. I hope Newt has terrific health over the next 10 years.

How could it be that Mitt could light into Newt and bring him down, and he couldn’t lay a mitten on Oboma? Newt was my choice from the get-go of the line up, ignoring his stinky past problems.

Damn! He knows how this stuff works, knows how the games are played, and I firmly believe we wouldn’t be looking at another 4 years of America’s planned decline today if he had won the nomination.

Other problems…yeah. But we would have been electing a president for 4 years

I always liked and admired Newt. This just makes it harder to bear how he fell apart during the primaries. It was such a shame that he didn’t have more discipline to run a much better campaign. But nobody can beat this guy’s intellect. When it comes to strategy, this guy WAS a great Speaker of the House and brilliant. Maybe that was the best he could ever be. But boy, do we need him now as Speaker. He would have destroyed Obama in these negotiations, just like he did Clinton.

cabensg

I know it seemed that way but he didn’t fall apart. He was torn apart. Romney surrogates lies in Florida is what turned the tide and from then on even though Newt was still on message no one was listening. The money dried up and talk show hosts, supposed conservative talking heads and especially the establishment Republicans he’d defeated in the past started deriding him. He was the only person in the race that actually made Obama and his energy czar come to heel. For weeks he had them answering his every speech. I saw every speech he made and he was just as good then as he is now but it was to no avail.

I think we have a population of longtime politicians in DC that operate on radical political idealogy, bipartisan corruption and mutual blackmail.

2010 didn’t clean out the DC septic tank.

2012 was a betrayal of the TEA Party and conservatism – BY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, by the Romney crowd who are really just career politicians with no idealogy but what’s expedient and will get them elected.

What will 2014 bring?

No doubt, Obama’s crowd has planned a disaster (nuclear, biological, global) that will keep him in office perpetually.

The Election system has been compromised and defrauded – it needs drastic reform.

We need computerized election voter IDs so people cannot vote but once. So voter lists can be validated and a system in which votes can be counted properly without error (intentional or otherwise) and so illegals, deceased and fictitious people can’t vote.

Thank you RightScoop for posting the second vid of Newt at the Reagan Library. Newt Gingrich will be part of our saving grace as a party. Now I don’t mean he should run in 2016, but I do think he needs to be part of the team that our Nominee in 2016 forms. Hell I would ask the Tea Party Leaders to go to Newt, have a deep conversation on how they can help overcome the Media and such for the 2014. Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, and Mark Levin need to meet and do something together, because I strongly believe the three of them, if they don’t run again, can reform the GOP in a way that can help save this country. I know I’m sounding like a Newt fanboy. It’s because I’ve never heard a politician lately explain Conservatism so plainly and make the argument so effectively than him.… Read more »

Allen West needs to be part of this group. The fact that he is now free for the next 2 years could be a good thing. He can now focus on helping get our party and our country back on track with the others noted above, Levin, Palin and Newt.

I didn’t include Allen West for a specific reason. I believe he should be part of the group that will be in the “Nominee in 2016” aspect of my post.

The 2 individuals that frankly are on my shortlist are
1) Allen West
2) Ted Cruz

With a special note to Susanna Martinez. She was a dem, until the NM GOP did exactly what Newt advocated to do, and guess what she’s now a rising star in the GOP Gov of New Mexico.

I agree with you Joe. Despite my criticism of Newt I think he is a brilliant individual. I love his historical novels. The problem is that as a candidate he is too polarizing. If he wins the republican nomination the next time we will likely have to endure another (and much worse) clinton presidency. Unless someone can neutralize the media the Rs are done. I would love to see him teamed with John Sununu to take the fight to those who slandered Romney relentlessly.

If a conservative wins next time Newt could be a valuable cabinet member in support of Col. West and Sen. Cruz or Gov. Martinez.

Oh I don’t think Newt should run again in 2016. IMHO he’s my last choice but he should be part of the team. Only leadership position I want Newt to be in is the RNC Chairman because I think that is the best place for him.

I appreciate your view but this is exactly the view we’ve had for to long. Reagan was polarizing to because he was the opposite of Carter. Anyone who will actually go toe to toe with liberal views from both parties is going to be polarizing. If you want to see an analysis of all the candidates that we’ve lost with or only won by the skin of their teeth you’ll see it was because they were not polarizing. They were safe, moderate to liberal and loved bi-partisanship. We need someone who is exactly the opposite of liberals and can explain why liberalism is killing our country. Reagan said he was not a great communicator only a communicator of good idea. I paraphrase.

Here’s the break down and it ain’t pretty. If Republicans continue down this path liberals will rule in perpetuity.

Newt was my first choice for 2012 but I know I am in the minority.

He wasn’t my first choice, but I sure became enamored with his ideas during the campaign.

Newt was one of those even in 2007 & 2008 presidential campaign I found from his comment in support of Palin & Macain make much sense in many of his interviews about various issues and policies in this country. I mentioned to many of my friends Newt is POTUS material. When Newt jump in the primary, I thought America will once again find someone to go to war with. Someone who’s familiar with the battle ground in Washington and were also successful in his tenure as a speaker of the house.I had great faith in Newt although I voted for R/R in the general election. I sure hope our coward reps we voted in to represent us may have an open mind and check out Newts suggestions.

Well, Newt is certainly laying the groundwork for something. It occurred to me this morning that RNC chair may be what he’s going for, because as much as I love the guy, I can’t see him making a 2016 run. Maybe. He’s obviously ‘campaigning’ now. The question is, for what?
