Gingrich tells GOP gathering:
‘Get beyond being anti-Obama’

Boston Herald, by Matt Stout

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/14/2013 10:47:13 PM

The Republicans need to ditch their “anti-Obama” attacks and offer positive solutions if they want to win back the White House in 2016, especially against potential presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich told GOP members today as they huddled in the Hub. “I don’t think we beat Hillary Clinton in a personality fight because the media will prop her up,” Gingrich told his fellow members in a welcome luncheon for the Republican National Committee’s summer meeting slated to run through Saturday in Boston. “I think we have a chance next year and in ‘16 to

He´s right. And as I keep saying, the Republicans need to start talking about possible alternatives to the regime initiatives that are so odious to us.

Is it possible the GOP does not want to defund Obamacare because they don´t have an alternative? You know Americans will be asking. This American is asking.

I think the Newt´s flat out wrong and just looking for attention, as usual. The Republican Party is fractured right now. Numerous RINOs are demanding the passage of the Gang of 8 immigration bill. That means they want to destroy the Republican Party as a conservative party. If all the illegal aliens become citizens they sure aren´t going to vote conservative. Why would they? They will have been rewarded for breaking the law. These same RINOs also demand everyone cave to Obama, raise the debt ceiling, and fund ObamaCare. That would be terrible for the country and its finances. Again, how is that different than being a liberal? The Newt is irrelevant.

Why do we need an alternative? All alternatives and obamacare will lead to a national health care plan such as Britain enjoys. I am using the word enjoys advisedly.

The Republican Party has offered a vision. It is the same vision they have had for the past 50 years- The vision is they are happy to keep their seats in Congress, work with the Democrats, beg the media to love to them but to actually come up with solutions to any problems they will let the Democrats try to do that and take the lead. With the exception of Pres. Ronald Reagan, who was undermined by the Republican establishment by being forced to take on Bush as his VP, can anyone really say the Republican Party has been a success?

We get excited about all the promises and lip service the GOP offers at election time but at the end of the day they have been ineffective.

I have always been a Republican and truly disagree with nearly everything the Democrats support and stand for. I make the above comments not to insult anyone BUT to bring forth the fact that the GOP as it stands today is not going to save America from its rapid decline. At this point the band is simply playing while the ship sinks.

Two points:

1. Larger point: we need -- desperately -- good people focused on the right principles. Smaller gov´t, lower taxes, follow the Constitution [the real one, written by the Founders], individual liberty [that´s liberty, not license] -- simple, sellable, critical. Easy for consistency-of-message across the country,across any ballot.

2. Smaller point: seems to me Newt is buying into one of the Dems most-useful "squirrels." Some R´s may well be small enough, petty enough, to oppose Obama "because he´s Obama." If so, they´re part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Im sorry to see Newt buying into the ineffective establishment GOP thinking.

We need CONTRAST dammit! Enough with the milk toast republican ´leadership´. Please.

Too bad... the current GOP ´leadership is soo used to playing 2nd fiddle that it has become the ´norm´ for them. They really dont care about the country. Not as much as they want to just hold onto power. Even if they are the permanent minority. They really are that self absorbed and that blind.

Boehner, McConnell, Kyl and Cantor must all be primaried out asap. They simply refuse to represent us anymore.

4-1/2 years to appeal or defund 0bamacare. 4-1/2 years and what do they have to show for it? Oh yes. Lets dare not speak about what a lawless and corrupt administration that is rotting this government and our society and our culture from the top down. No. We wouldnt want to make the democrat media mad at us now, would we?

Does anybody else see how out of kilt the current GOP priorities are?

Gingrich please... just go away now.

Gingrich´s presence ensures democrats will remain in control. That´s why the RNC has him around. The GOP isn´t anti-Obama, they love Obama. He saved them from the Tea Party in 2012 and they owe him big time. The win gave Boehner cover to banish conservatives and do O´s bidding. In any case, the GOP likes the same big gov. things dems. like. The RNC simply wants democrat voters to be their voters. Gingrich should´ve left the public stage many years ago. Instead he´s front and center crowding out new voices. He´s never been far from a microphone for decades yet did nothing to stop the destruction of the GOP and this country, the handover to the radical left, open borders with Mexico, and GOP House refusal to bring the ObamaCare defunding measure to the floor where they have 100% ability to defund.

The Dems have given the Repubs massive gifts in which to distinguish themselves and the Repubs are either blind, stupid or lazy.

If I were advising for 2014 & 2016, I would select the most eloquent and articulate reps of the Repub party and delegate a specific theme = message for them to raise in every speech they make. Domestic policy: economy, taxes, debt, oil independence and curb spending. Foreign policy: national security and the securing of our military and defense in light of China and Russia, securing our borders, withdrawal from ME and foreign aid and improving our ties with our allies.

These are the major issues every one is concerned about right now, and in which BO has failed miserably in every respect.

This is no brainer to win

The GOP doesn´t need any new ideas,we know what works in this country.To disclaim that Obama is the real problem,ignores reality.The economy is in freeze mode do to Obama and nothing else. If you had a free market president who would lift regulations and mandates on things like homebuilding,the economy would fix itself without any grand plans.

Tort reform is an old idea that would greatly help but Obama´s trial lawyer buddies would never allow it.Try suing China for a product made there and see how far you get,that´s one of the reasons companies relocate there.

I seriously dobtt you have sassy workers in China who take sick days for hangovers,so the Asian work ethic is also stealing jobs.

Make small business loans to serious people,not the social justice crowd who are coached on how to file a business bankruptcy without their personal assets being touched.They blow the loan money on SUV´s and stuff and walk away harmless fromthe debt,sticking taxpayers.

I think Newt Gingrich is wrong. He seems to imply that we are anti-Obama. Rush has elaborated on this many times and we are anti-policies.

I love the USA and Obama reminds me of what he is doing to this lovely country. I won´t get beyond that.

The GOP is not fractured but we have people (Obama, Democrats and liberals) who want to spread that idea. Even people on this website try to persuade that idea. All of the blame is placed on Republicans and I´m not buying it. I think that blame can be placed many places. Even on the voters! How many voters stayed out of politics and never became involved?

Keep buying that Republicans are fractured. It will make me think you are a Democrat lite.

Even "no alternative" is an alternative. If that is what the candidate proposes in place of Obamacare, then they should explain that. But the voters are unbelievably ignorant (including me in some respects), and who´s going to educate them if not the candidates? How do you expect people to vote for your candidate if they don´t know any better?

Also - it´s easy to say, "no alternative - leave it to the markets" if you´ve done well and are affluent. But what if it´s someone you know, and what if, according to the markets, your friend´s child has cancer and will not be able to get the treatment and will die of cancer because of not being able to afford the treatments, whereas the child of someone with a little bit more money can survive. I keep asking this question and not receiving an answer. I realize I am sounding like a socialist in this regard, but regardless of labels, I wish someone would respond. Because this is the situation of friends of mine in Britain.

No matter the system [free market, communism, barter, whatever], it will never be the case that all will receive equally. Sometimes unequal results will be the result of right and honest actions. Sometimes the unequal results will come from corruption. The more centralized the power, the more likely that corruption will determine the what result will be.

In the medical field, as in other advanced technological fields, the few [people, companies, or nations] with the greatest discretionary resources will have the latest, soonest. In part, it happens that way because those entities choose to make it happen.

But, what that means is that advances do come. They are proved possible. Only then can they be refined and made both better and more economical. That kind of advancement occurs in a free market system, because free markets are the mechanism that provides discretionary resources.

Every effort to provide "the same to all" has pushed the average down, not pulled it up. What lesson of history has been clearer, except perhaps man´s inhumanity to man? The dangers of concentrated power to life and liberty?

Yes, the best comes first for some, not all. But -- the best does come. First to some, then to more, then to all. That deserves praise, not being painted as a flaw. No?

Bush greets Obama at Houston airport

When President Barack Obama arrived in Houston about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday afternoon, former President George H. W. Bush was there to greet him. "When the president comes to your hometown, you show up to meet him," said Bush, who chatted with Obama and the first lady for about five minutes at the foot of the steps next to Air Force One at Bush Intercontinental Airport. Obama greeted about 50 well-wishers behind a barricade and chatted and shook hands for about 10 minutes before leaving for a meeting with about 30 members of the Democratic National Committee at the Museum District

As new details emerged about his four-year stint in the 1980s as a confidential informer for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Rev. Al Sharpton thought enough of the attention to hold a news conference to address what became front-page fodder for New York tabloids for two days this week. But to use Sharpton-esque language, the revelation was nothing but an elevation. At the annual convention of the organization he founded in 1991, the National Action Network, there was no hint of any discord or doubt. The United States attorney general, Eric H.

IRS Gave House Oversight Democrats

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sent tax documents on a targeted conservative group to Democratic staff on the House Oversight Committee, newly released emails show, despite previous denials by ranking Oversight Democrat Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) that such contact had occurred. Emails released by the GOP-led Oversight Committee show Democratic staff requested information from the IRS’ tax-exempt division on True The Vote, a conservative group that monitors polling places for voter fraud. Republicans and conservative activists say the IRS tax-exempt division, led by former official Lois Lerner, targeted dozens of conservative groups because of their politics while ignoring similar progressive

The Treasury Department has raised $2.38 billion after selling a large chunk of its stock in Ally Financial Inc. as part of the government´s ongoing effort to recoup the billions of dollars spent bailing out companies during the 2008 financial crisis. Treasury said Wednesday that it got $25 each for the 95 million shares it sold in an initial public offering. The pricing of the IPO came at the low end of the forecast range of $25 to $28 per share. The sale brought the amount it has recouped from the bailout of Ally to $17.7 billion, slightly more than the

House kills Obama budget 2-413

The House on Wednesday handily rejected a GOP budget alternative based on President Obama´s 2015 spending blueprint. It was defeated 2-413, following a pattern seen in recent years in House votes to overwhelmingly reject Obama´s budget proposals. Today´s vote is just slightly better than the unanimous vote against Obama´s budget in 2012. The two "yes" votes came from Reps. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) and Jim Moran (D-Va.), who is retiring. Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) offered a budget alternative based on Obama´s budget plan as a substitute amendment to the House GOP budget. Mulvaney made this move as a way to force

A House committee voted Wednesday to formally ask the Justice Department to consider criminal prosecution against ex-IRS official Lois Lerner, the figure at the center of the political targeting scandal. The House Ways and Means Committee voted 23-14 to send the criminal referral. The vote marked an escalation in Republicans´ push to confront Lerner over her role in the agency´s controversial practice of singling out conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for extra scrutiny. On another front, a separate committee will vote Thursday on whether to hold her in contempt of Congress for twice refusing to testify on the scandal.

The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
