He claims “smears and lies”. Newt’s real problems are his personality and his history. More historical Newt Stuff has come forth….. ….

Newt Gingrich’s SC win scared and depressed a lot of GOP & Independent voters


By Wendell Dawson, Editor, AVOC, Inc


I admit to being surprised and dejected over Newt Gingrich’s win in the SC primary.   Having observed Newt Gingrich for over 30 years, I have little confidence that he would defeat Obama or be a good President.   Newt has a lot of negative baggage.    He has a lot of “big ideas” and tends to be erratic and contradictory.   In recent days, it looks like responsible leaders are taking a stand against Newt being the GOP nominee.   More coverage of history has come out despite Media attempts to use Gingrich as a ramming rod against Mitt Romney, the likely GOP Nominee.

Newt Gingrich- ‘Negative Newt’


The Obama-Democrat enthusiasts, “Main Stream Media”, and Leftists have demonstrated for a year or more that they are fearful of Romney’s candidacy.    Romney is electable and not just a crowd pleaser on the right.   The networks (and other media types) have promoted and given coverage to Newt Gingrich as part of the “Get Romney” campaign.   Obama had a reputation in Illinois of eliminating his opponents and win by default.


President Barack Obama –Worst President in my memory


The Rush Limbaugh- Sarah Palin wing of the Republican Party is helping the Obama Team tear down Romney.   We know Romney is wealthy and that he was successful in business.    America needs a successful person as President and not another Big Ego!


Mitt Romneyis GOP best bet to get Obama out of the White House


This campaign has changed my reading and viewing sources.   I no longer listen to Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity and my respect for Laura Ingraham is diminished.   I have Unsubscribed to Newsmax and watch FOX less.   FOX has shown a lot of anti-Romney bias and some of its folks are just too liberal or confused for me.

I personally wish Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin would just go away.

Romney 44%, Gingrich 28%- Florida GOP Primary –Rasmussen-1.29.12



….Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has opened a double-digit lead in Florida as the perception grows among Republican primary voters that he is the strongest general election candidate against President Obama. The state's GOP Primary is on Tuesday.

   The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Florida Republican Primary Voters, conducted Saturday, shows Romney up by 16 points with 44% support. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is a distant second at 28%. 

   These figures reflect a significant turnaround over the past week………….


Romney beats Gingrich at his own game-CNN-1.27.12


….Don't let criticisms go unanswered. Again, Romney learned from previous debates. He first had an excellent line answering Gingrich's assertion that grandmothers and grandfathers were not likely to "self-deport." Romney came back: "Our problem is not 11 million grandmothers." Boom! It both mocked Gingrich's grandmother self-deportation argument while at the same time underscoring the vast issue of illegal immigration.

….And on his investments in Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, Romney countered by saying that they were made from a blind trust (a "backward step" in debate strategy). Romney continued with the "pivot forward" technique, which turns a potential negative into a positive by reminding us that one's financial accomplishments "... shouldn't be seen as a detriment ... [but] as an asset to help America." Perfect. Isn't it nice when something plays out exactly like you drew it up?

….when he told Gingrich to stop calling him "anti-immigrant." Romney stared down the former House speaker and said, "The idea that I'm anti-immigrant is repulsive. ……

   Romney's found his presence. And now that he has, there's zero chance he'll give it up the rest of the way through the primaries.


Mitt Romney Sent Millions to Mormon Church –ABC News- 1.18.12


   Underscoring the prominent, if little discussed role that Mitt Romney played as a Mormon leader, the private equity giant once run by the GOP presidential frontrunner carved his church a slice of several of its most lucrative business deals, securities records show, providing it with millions of dollars worth of  stock in some of Bain Capital's most well-known holdings.

    Romney has always been a major donor to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,….




Obama the Flimflam Man-Townhall-Lambro-1.27.12


   There was very little that was really new in the president's agenda-setting State of the Union address to the nation Tuesday. Since when is it new when Barack Obama calls for higher taxes on our economy?

     He had little to say about the government's $ 15 trillion debt, nor about the yearly trillion dollar plus budget deficits he's piling up. …..

     Nor did he have much to say about the serious troubles millions of Americans still face in the oppressive Obama economy: 14 million unemployed and millions underemployed; real family incomes declining; mortgage foreclosures rising…...

     Instead, his speech was dripping with flimflam political bromides and shameless class warfare against wealthy Americans. It was red meat for his cheering political base, but not for the much broader electorate who know rich people aren't to blame for Obama's weak, high unemployment economy. It's his anti-growth economic policies that are the problem.

     "There are 1.7 million fewer jobs in the country than when Obama took office, according to government data," the Washington Post reported earlier this month.

     But now in the fitful fourth year of his failed presidency, Obama's still campaigning around the country, bashing the wealthy for all of the economy's troubles, and insisting the rich are not paying their "fair" share in taxes.

    The IRS and nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office have figures that show this isn't true. The top 20 percent account for the lion's share of all federal income taxes paid.

     The group that was the chief target of his original class warfare attacks in his first two years were singles making $ 200,000 and married couples earning $ 250,000 and up. But that kind of attack didn't resonate very well. Too many small businesses would be severely hurt by his tax hike that also threatened their employees with layoffs. A lot of Americans do not consider such incomes rich anymore………


Obama’s 2012 State of the Union registers at 8th grade reading level- Politico-1.25.12


    President Obama's 2012 State of the Union address again rated at an 8th grade comprehension level on the Flesch-Kincaid readability test — the third lowest score of any State of the Union address since 1934.

   The University of Minnesota's Smart Politics conducted an analysis on the last 70 State of the Union addresses and found that President Obama's three addresses have the lowest grade average of any modern president. "Obama's average grade-level score of 8.4 is more than two grades lower than the 10.7 grade average for the other 67 addresses written by his 12 predecessors," they conclude…..


Buffett would profit from Keystone cancellation-Wash Times -1.24.12


   Warren Buffett, whom President Obama likes to cite as a fair-minded billionaire while arguing for higher taxes on the wealthy, stands to benefit from the president’s decision to reject the Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.

   Mr. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc. owns Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC, which is among the railroads that would transport oil produced in western Canada if the pipeline isn’t built…..


WHO'S GREEDY- Obama Gave 1% to Charity, Romney Gave 15%


    Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his wife Michelle gave $ 10,772 of the $ 1.2 million they earned from 2000 through 2004 to charities, or less than 1 percent, according to tax returns for those years released today by his campaign.

   The Obamas increased the amount they gave to charity when their income rose in 2005 and 2006 after the Illinois senator published a bestselling book. The $ 137,622 they gave over those two years amounted to more than 5 percent of their $ 2.6 million income………..

Obama Heads to Church – Again – 1.15.12


    President Obama and his family headed out to church this morning for the third time in a month, the latest sign that the president may be using religion to boost his image as the campaign heats up.

   Obama has rarely gone to church since becoming president. But last month he and his family walked across Lafayette Park in front of the White House to attend services at St. John’s Church. They attended Christmas services at a Marine Base in Hawaii and today were at Zion Baptist Church in DC.

   While it’s possible the trips to church a part of some kind of renewed personal religious commitment, they are also consistent with Obama’s increased use of religious imagery as part of his public profile…………
