It Was A Mistake

Tonight, Newt Gingrich, while on Fox News 'On The Record' publicly state that his statement on Meet the Press about Paul Ryans approach to change the medicare federal system being 'Right Wing social engineering' was a mistake and that he personally called Mr Ryan to apologies for the statement.

The former House speaker also held two conference calls with Tea Party leaders, one on Monday night and one Tuesday morning, to explain what he meant by his comments Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Politico reported.
“We’ve tried to correct the record and admit it could have been done better,”



That took guts and he should have done it right from the get go.
Matter of fact, Gingrich said he should have refused to answer such a loaded question.

I'll take his apology to heart and with a grain of salt.
Gingrich needs to get right with the base, and he better do it quite.
You might not ever forgive him.
I believe Paul Ryan has.
You might not vote for him in the primaries.
Now, in my opinion, he really is the strongest candidate thus far in the race, that MOST Americans know.
His past, the left will dig through and regurgitate. WHO cares what they say.
They've said and done enough the last two plus years.

Keep an open mind because the ultimate goal here is to field the best candidate to remove Obama.
Thats the objective.

Gingrich is not just toast, he's yesterday's toast.

He's a gaff machine, a smarter version of Joe Biden. He's undisciplined and can't control his motor mouth, understandable from a brilliant, idea person, but he's not presidential material, he's a statist, and I hope he fades quickly.

And if you can't handle "loaded questions" from a media you know is biased against you, you don't belong in the arena.

Palin fans make similar arguments, but if she can't outsmart the lefties in the press, and if she refuses to meet them head-on on their turf, then she doesn't have what it takes to be president.

The media is anti-conservative and anti-tea party. Politicians need to accept it, get over it, and adjust accordingly.

I agree with Silverfiddle. I tend to like Herman Cain. He's conservative and he brings out the worse in the liberal racists. He will make it easy to see the true colors of the left-wing. It might also help blacks realize that the Democratic Party is nothing more then a bunch of racist thugs that have made black more poor since they took control.

Yeah, but aren't they all? LOL!

Chris here is my take on who's in, who’s not, and everyone that thinks they will be contenders.

Ron Paul:
Tea Party favorite
Everyone has heard of him
Strong domestic ideas
VERY dangerous foreign policy ideas.
Easily beatable

Cain:
Tea Party favorite
Little have heard of him
Strong domestic ideas
Foreign policy ideas, unknown.
Good contender

Pawlenty
Not everyone has heard of him
Strong domestic ideas
Good foreign policy ideas.
Questionable of winning

Santorum
Not well known
Strong domestic ideas
Good foreign policy ideas.
Good contender

Gary Johnson:
Forget about it Pro-Choice, pro-immigration, critic of war on drugs, etc, etc

Romney:
Well known
Strong domestic ideas
Good foreign policy ideas.
Good contender
Huge problem, won't admit the Mass. Romneycare was a mistake and a BAD idea.

Palin:
Well known
Strong domestic ideas
Good foreign policy ideas.
Good contender
Huge problem, the left media have had 2+ years with her and now independents won't vote for her.

Mark: Good assessment. Cain's my choice so far, but I'm keeping my options open.

Mark Adams said...

Thanks, Silver. I like Cain too. Wish he'd get exposure. I think America would agree with all 3 of us here. :)

Christopher - Conservative Perspective said...

Here is a thought or two for a great 2012 ticket;

Cain-Bachmann or Bachmann-Cain, either way America wins!!!!

Mark Adams said...

Lets make that 4 of us. LOL! Some are predicting these 4 will become the top runners. Romney, Gingrich, Bachmann, Palin... but it's early still.

I think he showed himself to be the AARP's guy. Not the kind of thing young people like myself can support.

Mark Adams said...

Trestin, ever heard of Ron Paul? He is dirt's grand-grandfather. LOL!
