Newt supports more tax relief than Pawlenty wants in his flat tax. reminds us Newt wants an even bolder tax plan.

So I found out a couple of weeks ago that someone who clicked on this site searched on Google for "Pawlenty flat tax." Interested, I Googled the search terms.

I found out that, to my amusement, this post of mine, in which I criticize Pawlenty for not having a bold enough proposal, is the top result on Google.

Newt Gingrich Explains Why The USA Is Exceptional - Will Obama be willing to learn from Gingrich?
“Belief in American Exceptionalism leads inexorably to a smaller, more effective, accountable, and limited government. The American revolutionaries did not shed their blood for the welfare state; nor did they aim to replace the arbitrary rule of King George and his ‘multitude of New Offices’ and ‘swarms of Officers,’ as stated in the Declaration of Independence, with their own oppressive bureaucracy. Instead, they fought for individual liberty—and that made America an exception among all other nations.”

Newt Gingrich discusses Obama's Assault on South Carolina Jobs

Newt visited seventeen cities across Iowa this week. Newt has a Jobs and Prosperity Plan, and he's battling Obama's war on South Carolina workers.

Dear Boomer,

One thing is clear: Americans are ready to put our country back on the right track. Newt visited seventeen cities across Iowa this week. At each and every stop people packed into overflowing halls to hear what we can do to put the right policies in place so we can get the right results for our country.

As Newt noted when he launched the campaign, winning the future cannot be achieved by just one person in the White House. It will take all of us to succeed. Can you help build our momentum even more with a contribution of $10, $25, $50, or $100 today?

Everywhere he went, Onawa, Mason City, Council Bluffs, Newt was met with big crowds. In Waterloo, the meeting had to be moved to the Waterloo Coliseum to accommodate everyone.

We’re ready. We launched our campaign just over a week ago, and we are already seeing an outpouring of support. Volunteers have signed up in all 50 states. Next week Newt will campaign in both New Hampshire and South Carolina.

In New Hampshire Newt will continue talking with people about his Jobs and Prosperity Plan. The plan is already receiving praise. Noted Reagan economist Arthur Laffer calls it “Impressive” and says if the plan is implemented it will return jobs to America’s economy.

In South Carolina President Obama has declared a war on jobs. The National Labor Relations Board is threatening to kill over 8,000 jobs at a Boeing plant in North Charleston. This is exactly the type of bureaucrat power grabs Newt will put an end to.

Your support is our momentum for winning the future. Please consider a donation to the campaign today.

There is a long road ahead, but we are going to win. Americans are ready for the right policies and the leadership to get the right results. You can help. Have your friends sign up at or connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.

Every person we bring on to the campaign is one closer to Winning the Future.

Obama's Assault on South Carolina Jobs

by Newt Gingrich
Throughout the 2010 campaign, in this newsletter and elsewhere, I kept returning to a simple refrain to explain the intractability of America's economic woes: job killing policies kill jobs
This equation made sense to the American people. Amidst a bad economy sparked by the financial crisis, the Democrats had passed a $787 billion big government boondoggle, a massive government takeover of healthcare, and threatened to raise income taxes and a new tax on energy.  The American people understood that the natural resiliency of the U.S. economy had been damaged by the Left's big government ambitions and made the Democrats pay at the polls.
Despite a historic defeat in the 2010 elections, however, it is clear that President Obama and the left wing coalition he leads are determined to ignore this lesson. 
The latest job killing effort by this administration comes from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), which has filed a frivolous and devastating complaint against the Boeing Company.
It is frivolous because the complaint is unprecedented in the 76 year history of the National Labor Relations Act. 
It is devastating because the complaint puts thousands of jobs in South Carolina at risk.
Moreover, if this complaint is successful, the precedent set could prevent millions of jobs from being created throughout the United States, as entrepreneurs and businesses decide whether to invest in our country…or outside it.
Suspicious Timing
In October 2009, Boeing decided to open a new production facility in North Charleston, SC to meet the growing demand for its 787 Dreamliner airplane.
The decision came after months of negotiations with the machinists union leadership at Boeing's main production hub in Puget Sound, WA.  Since 1995, there have been five work stoppages in the Puget Sound plant. The most recent strike, in 2008, lasted 58 days and cost the company $1.8 billion. 
Still, Boeing negotiated in good faith with the union leadership for the Puget Sound facility to try and find a way to open the new factory there.  In exchange, Boeing wanted a ten year moratorium on strikes so the additional capacity upon which the company was about to spend billions of dollars would be a sound investment.
Boeing and the union were unable to reach an agreement so the company looked elsewhere.  They eventually settled on South Carolina, which is one of the twenty two “right-to-work” states in our country where workers cannot be forced to join a union. 
The complaint filed last month by the NLRB on behalf of the machinists union alleges that Boeing located the new facility away from Puget Sound in retaliation for the 2008 strike, which is illegal under the National Labor Relations Act.  It makes this accusation despite the months Boeing spent negotiating with the union to try and reach a deal to open the new facility in Puget Sound, and despite the fact that there is a clear legal precedent that allows companies to consider the impact of future strikes when deciding where to open new facilities.
It is the timing of NLRB's complaint, in fact, which seems retaliatory in nature, not Boeing's business decision.
The complaint comes a full seventeen months after Boeing announced the location of the new facility and thirteen months after the union leadership first asked NLRB to look into the issue. 
Boeing has already begun construction of the new facility, hiring over 1000 people in South Carolina and investing $1 billion. This complaint puts all those jobs created and all that money invested at risk.

Gingrich gets bump with Huckabee's announcement


Roundup of some PPP polls without Huckabee and Palin

Posted: 14 May 2011 07:12 PM PDT

Mike Huckabee tonight has announced he will not run for the 2012 Republican nomination. And while Sarah Palin has not announced she will not, almost all indications point to her staying out of the race.

Thus, I will re-post some polls that Public Policy Polling (PPP) has conducted the past couple of months that did not include the two former Governors:

An early April poll of Florida:
Gingrich: 30%
Mitt Romney: 28%
Michelle Bachmann: 11%
Tim Pawlenty: 10%
Ron Paul: 9%
A mid-April poll of Iowa (in which Donald Trump was also not included):
Romney: 28%
Gingrich: 19%
Paul: 16%
Bachmann: 15%
A mid-March nationwide GOP poll:
Gingrich and Romney: 24%
Paul: 12%
Pawlenty: 6%
Haley Barbour and Rick Santorum 5%

Newt's new campaign manager's views on social media

Posted: 06 May 2011 09:01 PM PDT


From an article a month before the 2010 election, when Rob Johnson was Rick Perry's campaign manager:

Campaign staffers and Perry himself are quick to point out that the governor's not exactly hurting for name recognition. So instead of plastering the state with Perry's name on stickers and yard signs, says campaign manager Rob Johnson, the staff is leaning heavily on the new online tools.

"We don't have paid headquarters in towns across the state," Johnson said. "We don't have physical offices. We don't do any of those annoying auto-dialers. We're depending completely, entirely, on social networks and personal contact, rather than the traditional way of doing things that most people say you have to do to win campaigns. (The governor) has embraced this technology and embraced these social platforms. We follow his lead."

Dave Carney of New Hampshire "to be heavily involved" in Newt's campaign

Posted: 06 May 2011 08:21 PM PDT

While calling Carney a "major player", Politico writes:

Carney, the former White House political director under George H.W. Bush, confirmed Friday what's long been widely rumored in New Hampshire political circles. After helping out with Gingrich's exploratory committee, he's planning to be heavily involved in the coming campaign, he said in an interview.

Carney said he believes Gingrich is the right man for the moment.

"I think we need big ideas," he said. "Now is the time for a big idea campaign. We're not going to win on micro issues or silly issues. We need big reforms, big ideas, a person who has a track record of big ideas."

A longtime ally of the Sununu family, Carney was Bob Dole's top consultant in 1996 and currently serves as the top political adviser to Texas Gov. Rick Perry. He's been spotted ushering Gingrich around New Hampshire in recent months.

Asked whether he believed Gingrich could win the presidency, Carney said, "Anybody can win." Americans, he said, are eager to toss out the Obama administration.

"Democrats are totally clueless when it comes to the middle of America, the flyover states," Carney said. "They just don't get it. That's why."

Rob Johnson as campaign manager, Joe Gaylord will reportedly stay at American Solutions

Posted: 06 May 2011 07:45 PM PDT

On Friday, there was the not-so-surprising news that Rob Johnson, who managed Texas Governor Rick Perry's 2010 Gubernatorial campaign, would become the campaign manager of Newt's Presidential run. Johnson first signed on with Newt -- in an advisory role -- back in March. (Another former Perry staffer -- called Perry's "top political consultant -- Dave Carney is helping Newt out in New Hampshire.)

Johnson's "special strength," says Gingrich spokesman Rick Tyler, "is how to harness the Internet for modern campaigns. He did that in Texas and he will have the same capability for Gingrich nationally."

A bit shockingly:

In a surprise move, Tyler said Gingrich’s closest political adviser, Joe Gaylord, will remain as CEO of American Solutions for Winning the Future, the 527 political committee that Gingrich set up about five years ago to promulgate conservative positions.
Gaylord, a native of Iowa, had been widely expected to be a senior adviser to a Gingrich campaign.

In more staff news:
Tyler also said that Sam Dawson, a protégé of Lee Atwater who has been advising Gingrich this year as he explored making a run for the White House, will be a senior political consultant to the campaign. Dawson, who worked for former Gov. Carroll Campbell of South Carolina and has been close to Gingrich since the mid 1990s, also did a stint as the executive director of the National Republican Congressional Committee.

Examining Bob McDonnell's claim that Newt is "most important Republican" besides Reagan in last 50 years (hint: he's right).

Posted: 05 May 2011 02:54 PM PDT

Virginia Governor and possible 2012 Vice Presidential pick Bob McDonnell had this exchange the other day:
New York Times: Other than Reagan, the most significant Republican in the last half-century.

McDonnell: Newt Gingrich. That Contract with America really changed the way Republicans approached government -- positive, problem
solving, solutions and then getting things done.

I think that was a phenomenal turnaround.
Of course, McDonnell is not alone in that view. Lee Edwards -- who worked on Barry Goldwater's campaign, has been a long-time scholar at the Heritage Foundation, and is perhaps the preeminent historian of the conservative movement -- also says that.

The Republicans have had other Presidents in that time span -- Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush -- but none led to as many conservative policy victories as Newt nor did they help bring a political realignment along.

He set out when he was first elected to Congress in 1979 to help bring down the Democrat House majority that had become entrenched and corrupt. Edwards recalls that Newt was all but called insane for arguing Republicans could capture the House. Having done what many thought impossible, Newt followed that up with balancing the budget four years in a row -- while enacting tax cuts and rebuilding our military at the same time -- and reforming welfare.

While being the most influential Republican besides Ronald Reagan in the last half century is not reason alone to be the next GOP Presidential nominee, it is also not to be diminished. Roll Call put it this way:
In noting Gingrich’s accomplishments as a Member, [Gingrich spokesman] Tyler telegraphed what could be a campaign messaging strategy to contrast the former Speaker’s record of concrete achievement at the federal level versus his opponents’ 'rhetoric' of as-yet-unfulfilled promises.
Every Republican running for the White House will talk of balancing the federal budget but only one actually has. And if Newt reminds people of his accomplishments -- almost half of the electorate, either due to being too young in the 90s or other reasons, is not even aware Newt was Speaker -- he will get a chance to balance it again. This time at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue.

Newt gets office space in Atlanta

Posted: 05 May 2011 09:36 AM PDT

Newt has rented out office space in Buckhead, a neighborhood of Atlanta, the AP reports.

As far as tying up loose knots before being able to jump in:

[Gingrich spokesman Rick] Tyler said that among other things, Gingrich had turned in the manuscript for a book and completed a film in the works by his production company.
