Gingrich disparages Obama, calls
him 'not a real president'

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Jonathan Easley

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 9/26/2012 12:27:01 AM

Former House speaker Newt Gingrich ripped President Obama for not meeting with world leaders on his trip to the United Nations on Friday, saying Obama is “not a real president.”

 “[Obama] really is like the substitute [National Football League] referees in the sense that he’s not a real president,” Gingrich told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News Tuesday night. “He doesn’t do anything that presidents do, he doesn’t worry about any of the things the presidents do, but he has the White House, he has enormous power, and he’ll go down in history as the president, and I suspect that

Comments:
0bama has planted the seeds of distress, war, slavery and failure all across the world with his disastrous foreign policies. Not even leftist contortionists will be able to credibly blame Bush as the suffering and violence brought about by the arising Islamofascist regimes begins to blossom.

The chattering classes won't let Newt get away with this--they'll get back at him somehow.
But he's right.

He is absolutely right! Obama doesn't do everything a Prseident should. I don't know if it is him or if it is his people that are responsible. Maybe Valerie Jarrett tells him, he doesn't need to do all that stuff. Whatever it is, it is just so wrong. Same goes for how he refuses to be the President of all the citizens. He only acts on behalf of those who agree with his ideology.

Newt had my vote in spite of his baggage and I think if he had been elected president, a lot of this monkey business in the government would be gone. He would be kicking butt and taking names and wouldn't be afraid of the dhims in the house or senate.

I've thought exactly the same from day 1 of this disaster, and cannot bring myself to call this fraud "president" without using scare quotes. The root of this not-real "presidency" is something totally dishonest and subversive, and I'm confident history will end up proving this, once all the facts are known. Maybe between W and Mitt the history books will just show a blank space in their listing of American presidents.

I don't think Newt would have made a good president, but the man does have a way speaking essential truths.

By the way, it's Campaign 101 to let guys like Newt do the bashing and have the candidate himself appear to stand above the fray a little bit. Obama has demonstrably made himself look smaller by getting down into the pit and attacking Romney in his own speeches. The presidency is supposed to be bigger than that, and Romney seems to understand that.

I hope America is not beyond a time when a J. Edgar Hoover style investigation would reveal all the lies and crimes that installed this President. I don't care if he is cancelled because he submitted a forged Selective Service record, stole someone's SS number, or knowingly altered a birth certificate, any reason to open the floodgates of lies will do, but if this country is going to survive, this megacrime has to be revealed. ALL of the 'sealed' records, ALL of the collaborators, need to be exposed. Along with the plotting, propagandists in the media who enabled all of it. I think the chances of any of this happening are almost zero.

Romney will never be able to articulate the message of conservatism and the truth about Obama's radicalism because he is not ideological.
This isn't a criticism, but a fact the electorate must face. Romney is a problem-solver and critical-thinking businessman. He is competent, moral, and solid as granite, but we will never see the passion and courage that Newt displays because Newt is ideological in the most conservative sense.

They would both do a good job as President, but Newt has the advantage of making decisions based on conservative ideology. Romney will make all his decisions based on what will solve the problem. That's why people are nervous about him sticking to conservative values and ideas. It's also why he came up with Romneycare...he was trying to solve a problem. And I'm confident he will run the country this way. It may not overturn Obamacare, but it will fix the economy. Romney's not a sell-out by any means and he remains principled in dealing with our allies. All in all, he'd do a good job.
...but he's no Newt.

...and meow to those cats who bag on Calista even now.

Okay newt is a dream come true. too bad he he was so addicted to Women and and lack of
strong character he destroyed his own chances.
Newt couldn't handle his ego when the tables were turned on him.
He was not /is not capable of a strong steady course needed to lead this country.
Get over it and support the only accepted candidate for president.
Newt should be the UN ambassador where he could talk them to death.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less
