Newt Gingrich Tag

Here was my assessment: End Game – no clear winner. Cain exceeded expectations but only because expectations were low.  Perry redeemed himself but I doubt it will change perceptions.  Newt and Romney were both good, Newt scored his usual slap at the moderator and it...

Cain-Newt-Romney all tied up, per latest CBS poll, with Cain at 18, and Newt/Romney at 15: In the Republican race for the presidential nomination, Newt Gingrich's support continues to slowly grow, and he is now tied with Mitt Romney for second place, while Herman Cain just...

While Newt's answer taking on the Occupy Wall Street movement and challenging Maria Bartiromo has received all the attention. I think this was the best answer of the night, taking on the academic establishment rather than accepting the premise of the question, which was an attempt...

Newt appeared on Center Seat to face the panel Mitt Romney refuses to face (video h/t The Right Scoop): Steven Hayward at Powerline points out a key point: Maybe the best part was when Steve Hayes played the infamous TV ad Newt cut with Nancy Pelosi three...

I've been focusing on Newt's rise since the debates in early September, when he distinguished himself as the statesman on stage and the guy focused on the ultimate prize, defeating Obama.  While Perry and Romney squabbled, and Santorum and Bachmann tried to score points attacking...

Not really surprising, a trend I have been seeing for quite some time, and boosted by his strong speech at the Iowa GOP Reagan Dinner. Via Political Wire: A new We Ask America poll in Iowa finds Herman Cain leading the GOP presidential field with 22%, followed by Newt...

I really don't want this to turn into one of those foul-mouthed blogs, but this is pushing me to the limit: Asked if the country’s consistently high unemployment rate made him vulnerable in the upcoming 2012 election, Obama insisted “the least of my concerns at the...

Romney and Perry are doing each other and themselves damage by going at it in the way they have been, which at times seems childish, petty and insincere, which has even such mainstream commentators as John Podhoretz (A Pack of Nonsense) and Scott Johnson (Send in the...

Frank Luntz did a focus group on Hannity last night regarding the Las Vegas debate.  The group confirmed my view that Newt is rising. I can't find a video of it, but NewsMax has a partial transcript.  The group found that Newt won the debate hands down,...

My assessment of the Vegas debate remains the same at the top of the ticket, Perry won by exceeding expectations.  There were some negatives to his performance, such as the issue of Romney's lawn care company hiring illegals, which even if it was worth a...

Not going to "live blog" but will have some observations. END GAME: Perry the winner not because he was so much better than the others, but because he was so much better than he was previously.  He may have revitalized his campaign tonight.  Cain was damaged, but...

and I wish he was right. The fledgling candidate announced in Iowa that he is going to propose a newer Contract with America:  It “will be 10 times deeper and more comprehensive than 1994,” he told an audience of about 40 people Monday night in Council Bluffs....
