Gingrich: If Hillary Clinton Runs In 2016,
Current GOP ‘Incapable Of Competing’

Mediaite, by Anjali Sareen

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/10/2012 5:56:15 AM

Newt Gingrich told David Gregory on Sunday’s Meet The Press “the Republican party of today is incapable of competing” with a 2016 presidential run by Hillary Clinton. Gingrich thinks “every Republican” should be focused on 2016 because of the severity of their defeat in 2012. Gingrich said that if Clinton were to run in four years, “supported by Bill Clinton and presumably a still relatively popular President Barack Obama, trying to win that will be, truly, the Super Bowl.”

Comments:
Thank you, Newt. Now go away.

Newt is at his best when putting the press in their place...not so great at predictions.

Umm, just when we thought experience was important, 2008 came along. Then when we thought that zero accomplishments and the baggage of running the economy into the ground would do the trick 2012 got here.
I don´t want the Hillbag anywhere near the White House, but the fact remains that this is now a very different country and we have to learn how to re-take the office.

1. I agree with Newt. 2. #3, from your lips.

I hope that either the tea party emerges as the genuine choice for Americans by the next election, or that the GOP gets a thorough housecleaning of all the progressive plants and democrat wannabes.

Not a tough call. If Karl Marx runs in 2016 the GOP cant compete.
They proved it in 2012.

Silliness. Most of Obama´s female vote comes from women who are, uh, "excited" in the nether parts by His Majesty (bad boy syndrome, perhaps). I´d bet that percentage is at least 96%. Hillary´s visage, on the other hand, repels red-blooded males like a tsunami of pepper spray. The only men who´d possibly vote for that walking insult to feminine charm are men who, uh, aren´t men.

No threat in 2016. The GOP will be incapable of competing only if it keeps caving in to the Obamas and Clintons of the world.

Newt, of whom the Clinton machine made mincemeat of during their day. It looks like they still scare him to death. Our first enemy is the MSM in this country that covered our primaries in the most negative fashion and then did 90% + negative stories on Romney. Add to that the massive voter fraud in this country and you have not even touched a real conservative issue, The country is dying or dead due to people who are God-less and worship "things" like Obama and Obamacare, welfare, etc. This is where we start.

There is a proof of the pudding coming before 2016. It is the 2014 elections. Will they be a repeat of 2010 or 2012? That will give the answer to the real question Newt has raised.

Let´s see. In 2008 the gop ran a candidate with a questionable history of where he was born, against obama. In 2012 the gop ran a candidate who had signed (not authored)romneycare against obamacare obama.
You mean to tell me that somewhere in the ranks of the gop stable, they can´t find a skank who ONLY does the bidding of powerful men? I´m sure they will find the perfect candidate.

In our brain dead hip society, by 2016 half of the people of voting age will not remember the Clinton years. I doubt Bill Clinton who will be around 70 will make any 20 somethings swoon and Hillary will also be around 70. I doubt there is a makeover anywhere that could make the hag look even remotely attractive.

As to poster #6, Romney won the male voter....it was the young ´ens and the free birth control and the Hispanics and Asians that lost the race, and nothing is being done to either court or educate them....at least without destroying all our ethics and principles. (Forget the Blacks--they largely seem to knee jerk to another 1/2 Black no matter WHAT he does, and that goes for Colin Powell as well.)

Can´t stand Newt but this time, for the first time in years, he´s correct. The sooner the party´s leaders get together and cobble together a platform that reflects we are living in the 21st century and tells those who don´t agree to form their own theocratic party, the better. Otherwise it´s doomed.

Unfortunately for my optimism levels, I have the same dreadful feeling that Hillary will be our next president. Makes me throw up in my mouth. The GOP is so weak that Boehner is getting ready to give Obama what he wants with higher tax rates. The idiot public will only see that the Annointed One runs the country without any help from Congress once again and be thrilled. Won´t matter what Boehner gets in return...

Unless the States get in gear and purge the voter list of dead and illegals and pass voter ID NOW... we will loose. They know the Liberal election stealing is coming but still they scratch themselves until about 2 months before the election then decide maybe they should look into it... Too busy enjoying their power until they are about to loose it..

I do not pretend to know who will run next election for the prez - I do know that Newt is a sleazebag that I do not want to listen to or see. I would have trusted Mitt with my life and the country´s health. The Republican party needs to have people voting despite their like or dislike of the candidate. The country cannot stand much more of the dim rule and spending. Even if it meant voting for newt - not even he would destroy us.

I totally agree except that Dems play dirty so win, while Repubs cave every chance they get so they can be "liked" too. W fell prey to that syndrome in his second term and was giving entitlements away in a failed attempt to get some appreciation from the lefties. How many times do you see his great work for AIDs victims be mentioned? Ask a Dem who gave them prescrition coverage to see how well that worked out. Ask a Dem who voted for civil rights legislation. Only thing they know is that JFK sent the Guard in to integrate the school that the Dem governor was blocking, so voila! A Dem president integrated schools!

The GOP proved incapable of competeing in 2012 and so far I don´t see much sign that people have learned much from the lesson.

Personally I think that all those who were gung ho for Romney are the ones who need to go away. Not only were all their predictions wrong, they ares till blind as to why that was so.

#23 - I agree.
#33 - some of us still care and do not intend to let the liberals do exactly what Obama is trying hard to do - which is to demoralize the conservatives in this country to the point where we have been effectively shut up and will no longer vote.

We have about 2 years before the next crop of GOP contenders start getting serious. Hope it´s Rubio.

If the GOP is unable to compete in 2016 then most likely they can not compete in 2014 either. We might be seeing Speaker Pelosi again along with billions in `stimulus` an every other crazy piece of leftist legislation they couldn`t push through in the 111th Congress.

The GOP is finished at the national level through a combination of illegal immigration, demographics, and Free Stuff. The Presidency should be written off, let the establishment run their RINOs, and concentrate on efforts to promote de facto secession through governors refusing federal directives. The Supreme Court doesn´t have an army, and federal judges should simply be ignored.

Newt was corrupt morally. He had no way of winning against Clinton. This holds true of Justice Roberts, who must have a huge secret. Anytime Obama takes on one of the Repubs you can be sure he has the dirt. I had hoped Romney´s clean character would prevail but he lacked one thing: guts and passion. He had ambition and integrity and know how...but so what if you can´t out gun your enemy.

On upcoming trip, Obama
will try to pivot to Asia - again
McClatchy Newspapers, by Lesley Clark    Original Article

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the departure

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

Rapist’s painting hung in the White House

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it. How would American Indian

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

Returning home from service in a war is never easy, and it is all the harder when veterans are maligned as dangerous time bombs. U.S. vets are a sweepingly broad group. It is surely fair to say that on the whole they have displayed a greater proclivity to national service than many of their fellow Americans. But beyond that, generalizations become dicey fast. (Snip)So it is now with the fury generated by a New York Times Op-Ed that was headlined, “Veterans and White Supremacy,” and that was illustrated by a drawing of soldiers saluting in silhouette — except one instead

Hillary’s glass jaw

Hillary Clinton and her friends in the media have been testing messages for her expected presidential campaign. The case for her will be built on four pillars: that allegations of her corruption are unfair; that she is highly accomplished; that she is above partisanship; and that she is a woman. The first three are dubious and the fourth will matter less than you may think. Do you remember Webb Hubbell, the McDougals, the missing Rose Law firm billing records, Travelgate, or Hillary’s surprise acumen at high-risk commodities trading? Super PACs and other groups will remind voters of all of these case

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´

WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
