The Bogus Claim that Newt Gingrich is Liberal

Many in the media, who back Mitt Romney for president, are trying to tell us now that Newt Gingrich is a liberal and Romney is a conservative, but take it from those who know them best. John McCain and Jon Huntsman endorsed Mitt Romney, while Rick Perry, Michael Reagan, Art Laffer, and the Palins endorsed Newt Gingrich.

If you still have any doubts about whether Newt is the conservative candidate, then read the points of his Contract With America for yourself (details here).

This was the agenda for the first day of the new republican Congress:

  • FIRST, require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply equally to the Congress;
  • SECOND, select a major, independent auditing firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of Congress for waste, fraud or abuse;
  • THIRD, cut the number of House committees, and cut committee staff by one-third;
  • FOURTH, limit the terms of all committee chairs;
  • FIFTH, ban the casting of proxy votes in committee;
  • SIXTH, require committee meetings to be open to the public;
  • SEVENTH, require a three-fifths majority vote to pass a tax increase;
  • EIGHTH, guarantee an honest accounting of our Federal Budget by implementing zero base-line budgeting.

This was the agenda for the first 100 days of the new republican Congress:

1. THE FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY ACT: A balanced budget/tax limitation amendment and a legislative line-item veto to restore fiscal responsibility to an out- of-control Congress, requiring them to live under the same budget constraints as families and businesses.

2. THE TAKING BACK OUR STREETS ACT: An anti-crime package including stronger truth-in- sentencing, “good faith” exclusionary rule exemptions, effective death penalty provisions, and cuts in social spending from this summer’s “crime” bill to fund prison construction and additional law enforcement to keep people secure in their neighborhoods and kids safe in their schools.

3. THE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY ACT: Discourage illegitimacy and teen pregnancy by prohibiting welfare to minor mothers and denying increased AFDC for additional children while on welfare, cut spending for welfare programs, and enact a tough two-years-and-out provision with work requirements to promote individual responsibility.

4. THE FAMILY REINFORCEMENT ACT: Child support enforcement, tax incentives for adoption, strengthening rights of parents in their children’s education, stronger child pornography laws, and an elderly dependent care tax credit to reinforce the central role of families in American society.

5. THE AMERICAN DREAM RESTORATION ACT: A S500 per child tax credit, begin repeal of the marriage tax penalty, and creation of American Dream Savings Accounts to provide middle class tax relief.

6. THE NATIONAL SECURITY RESTORATION ACT: No U.S. troops under U.N. command and restoration of the essential parts of our national security funding to strengthen our national defense and maintain our credibility around the world.

7. THE SENIOR CITIZENS FAIRNESS ACT: Raise the Social Security earnings limit which currently forces seniors out of the work force, repeal the 1993 tax hikes on Social Security benefits and provide tax incentives for private long-term care insurance to let Older Americans keep more of what they have earned over the years.

8. THE JOB CREATION AND WAGE ENHANCEMENT ACT: Small business incentives, capital gains cut and indexation, neutral cost recovery, risk assessment/cost-benefit analysis, strengthening the Regulatory Flexibility Act and unfunded mandate reform to create jobs and raise worker wage.

9. THE COMMON SENSE LEGAL REFORM ACT: “Loser pays” laws, reasonable limits on punitive damages and reform of product liability laws to stem the endless tide of litigation.

10. THE CITIZEN LEGISLATURE ACT: A first-ever vote on term limits to replace career politicians with citizen legislators.

Filp-Flopping Bush Endorses Romney

In a move that should surprise no one, George H. W. Bush has endorsed Romney for president. Is this really an asset for Mitt or will it be the final nail in the coffin of his candidacy? After all, the main thing people remember about the elder Bush is his failure to keep his pledge not to raise taxes.

This can’t possibly play well with the republican voters that Romney needs to win over. Romney supporters are trying to make flip-flopping a sign of flexibility, but do they really believe that making and breaking pledges to voters is going to go very well.

The statements of Romeny and the elder Bush were very similar in their stridency. When Bush said “read my lips” it was much like Romney’s statement about decades of support for Roe versus Wade (see video below). The problem isn’t that Bush or Romney changed their minds, the problem is that both of them changed thier positions on whims after making seemingly-ironclad statements.

After all, if we can’t trust them to honor these “unbreakable” promises, what can we trust them on? Who knows? Maybe Bush will change his mind again and endorse someone else.
