Newt Gingrich Blogger Conference Call 3-22-12: Rick Santorum Blogger Conference Call 3-22-12

I was invited to attend Newt Gingrich’s conference call: thank you to Dan Kotman at Newt’s campaign, and to attend Rick Santorum’s conference call, thank you to  Lisa Graas at Catholic Bandita, for the invitations. Unfortunately, today was a day that I could not be in a position to take a phone call. I made it to Newt’s for 1-1/2 questions. Didn’t make it to Santorums at all, but so appreciate the invitations. I’ve been in my office all week, and today was the wrong day for me. However, you can read the comments of some who did participate. Bloggers are usually allowed to ask a question. Mine for Newt would have been, who can you name that would be a model for your cabinet members? Not asking for who he would choose, but who would be examples of the types of persons he would choose. I asked this question of Santorum in the last conference call, and his answer was that it was too early to say but that his choices would be very conservative. I have no problem believing him.

Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich

Rick Santorum:

Lisa Graas – Catholic Bandita

Pete DaTechGuy – with a list of other bloggers who called in. Pete drew a comparison to Romney’s conference call, in comparison to Santorum’s. He asks this question: If you are snubbing conservatives before a GOP primary, how will you treat them once elected?

Newt Gingrich:

Warner Todd Huston – Right Wing News: Read Newt’s remarks on supporting Paul Ryans’ budget.

John Ruberry – Marathon Pundit

When my turn came for to question Gingrich, I asked him about specifics in regards to drilling on federal lands. For instance, would he support drilling in Utah’s Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument? He said he is open to exploration there. That monument, which covers nearly two million acres, was declared such by President Clinton in 1996 in a move that remains controversial.

  • I would Newt why he serves on the board of Healthymagination with Tom Daschle, a company expected to make billions from Obamacare.

    • Bungalow Bill, no worries, he won’t be the candidate.

  • I was included in yesterday’s Santorum conference call this time and got to ask the first question! 🙂 I will blog about that later today.
    I’m happy to see that Newt is doing these too, it’s good that Conservative bloggers are being recognized!

    Newt won the Baton Rouge Straw Poll with 53%. No one else was close. http://conservatives4newt.blogspot.com/2012/03/newt-easily-wins-lsu-college.html

    Newt is ahead in the Fox Nation “Who can best win against Obama” poll.

    “When we act like us, we win. When we act like them, we lose.”

    Newt is the only candidate taking our message to the MSM, who has the breadth of experience to design a national campaign so that we win the Presidency, the House and the Senate with Constitution loving candidates.

    We will win a majority. The House and Senate will stay in session after January 3rd and write the law repealing Obamacare and Newt will sign it THE FIRST DAY.

    AMERICAN ENERGY NOW is a powerful set of solutions for the economy, getting free of dependence of foreign oil, and repaying the national debt. ROSEMONT: http://electad.com/topics/newt-gingrich-speeche

    And — Newt explains it in 28:59 minutes. No notes, just a backdrop, a camera and Newt.

    If you haven’t seen this speech below yet, I highly recommend it. “2012: VICTORY OR DEATH.”

    It’s from 2009. A glimpse into Christams Eve, 1776 for George Washington and our early American heros. Why their password was “victory or death.”

    Analysis and anecdote about electoral politics– why 2004 was a wasted opportunity. Why 2006 was a performance firing for the Republicans. What America IS and what it means when we say that America is the “exceptional” nation.

    How we can restore our Constitution and win a decisive political victory in the American Tradition — now, this year, right now, 2012.

    This speech gives you a blueprint of what we, the American People can do and how we’re going to do it. If you want hope for change, check it out.
