Florida primary might not be a done deal
   by Carl Cameron | February 01, 2012 - Fox News

TAMPA, Fla. -- Florida's primary might not be over just yet. The Newt Gingrich campaign is gearing up to challenge the results of the Florida Republican presidential primary based on the Republican National Committee's own rules which state that no contest can be winner-take-all prior to April 1, 2012. (See RNC memo.)

It was assumed that Mitt Romney, who won Tuesday's contest, would gain all 50 of the state's delegates. But the Gingrich campaign plans to challenge Florida's allocation and demand the delegates be divvied up proportionally. (See Gingrich memo.) - Read entire article

Romney wins big in Florida GOP primary!


Florida Primary 2012 Results: What Romney's Win Means - January 31, 2012
International Business Times

With 96 percent of precincts reporting as of 10 p.m. EST, Romney had 46.4 percent of the vote, followed by Gingrich with 31.9 percent.

Rick Santorum and Ron Paul trailed badly, with 13.4 percent and 7 percent, respectively. Now, with Florida's 50 delegates under his belt and a friendly calendar ahead -- Nevada, Colorado and Minnesota will all hold caucuses in the coming week, and polls show all three states leaning in his direction -- Romney is firmly back in the front-runner's seat.

It takes 1,144 delegates to win the Republican nomination, and only a small fraction of that total has been awarded so far. In that sense, there is plenty of time for one of Romney's opponents to upset him. But in practice, Romney has several advantages that will be very difficult for anyone else to overcome: an "electable" image, strong organization and almost limitless money. Read more

Dick Morris: How Mitt Romney suckered Gingrich in Florida
   By Dick Morris - 01/31/12 06:32 PM  - The Hill

 
After endorsing Gingrich, Cain says Romney OK, too
   The Associated Press  - AJC - Jan. 31. 2012

WASHINGTON — Fresh off campaigning for Newt Gingrich in Florida, former candidate Herman Cain says he also would be comfortable supporting Mitt Romney if he's the one who wins the Republican presidential nomination. 

Cain told NBC's "Today" show that he endorsed Gingrich and campaigned with him Monday because he found Gingrich's tax plan similar to his own proposal, dubbed his "9-9-9" plan. Cain said he would be "very comfortable" with Romney, too, but that both candidates carry negatives that would be attacked by President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.

Citizens United Political Victory Fund Endorses Martha Zoller for Georgia’s 9th Congressional District

Citizens United Political Victory Fund (CUPVF), the affiliated PAC of Citizens United, issued the following statement endorsing Martha Zoller for Georgia’s 9th Congressional District. CUPVF has also contributed $5,000 for Zoller’s primary election.

“I have known Martha Zoller for nearly ten years and she has been a shining example for the conservative movement,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “Congress needs more people like Martha Zoller who have rock solid conservative credentials. Martha will bring a fresh perspective to Congress because she is not a career politician, and will help lead the fight to end Obamacare.”

Former GOP presidential candidate joins rally for fellow radio host, House candidate 
afielding@gainesvilletimes.com

Martha Zoller, conservative radio host and candidate for Georgia's new 9th U.S. House District seat, became the first in the race to pull out the star power Saturday when she appeared with former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain at the Gainesville Civic Center.

With qualifying for the new congressional seat in Georgia several months away, Cain endorsed Zoller, a friend in radio, because the two "align exactly in terms of our beliefs," he said.

"I hate that Martha's going to go off the radio, but I'm loving the fact that she's going to run for Congress, so we will have a voice in Washington who gets it," Cain said.

Zoller, too, said she supports Cain's "9-9-9" plan for tax reform, because she said it was a path to a plan known as the FairTax, which she supports. Read more

"Washington D.C. has disconnected from what we stand for, and we have got to take it back from the outside, and sending people like Martha to Washington is one of the ways we do that," said Cain. Read more

convention?

By Linda FeldmannStaff writer / January 30, 2012 - Christian Science Monitor

Even if he loses in Florida, Newt Gingrich might be able to remain a factor in the GOP presidential race until the national convention. But the Republican establishment would not be pleased.   

Fort LAUDERDALE, Fla.

Newt Gingrich appears headed toward a big defeat in Tuesday’s GOP primary in Florida. Five polls out Monday show Mitt Romney ahead of him by at least 5 percentage points (Insider Advantage) and as much as 20 points (Suffolk University). In the Real Clear Politics average of recent polls, Mr. Romney leads Mr. Gingrich by 12.5 points. Read more

Rasmussen Poll Jan 29: Romney 44%, Gingrich 28%

The Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich appears to be heading for defeat in the Florida primary on Tuesday despite picking up the endorsement of former pizza mogul and Tea Party favorite Herman Cain.  Polls show Mitt Romney with a double-digit lead, though these were taken before Cain's surprise announcement of support for Gingrich on Saturday night. Pollsters predicted the intervention of Cain, who was the frontrunner in the race late last year until he was forced out by sexual harassment allegations, is unlikely to make much difference. (Wonder why Herman waited until today to do this???)

Gingrich and Reagan  -
   In the 1980s, the candidate repeatedly insulted the president.
   By Elliott Abrams  - National Review on Line

"Gingrich claims are misleading at best. As a new member of Congress in the Reagan years — and I was an assistant secretary of state — Mr. Gingrich voted with the president regularly, but equally often spewed insulting rhetoric at Reagan, his top aides, and his policies to defeat Communism. Gingrich was voluble and certain in predicting that Reagan’s policies would fail, and in all of this he was dead wrong. Read more

 Despite the failure of President Obama's massive experiment in massive government - Dodd-Frank, Stimulus and Bailouts, ObamaCare - the President is even more determined to grow the size, scope, and reach of the federal government in order to ensure that "everyone does their fair share and everybody plays by the same set of rules."  Read more

Diva: Newt Won't Attend Debates without Cheering Audiences
Townhall The Tipsheet by Kate Hicks


The Great Debater might be willing to self-deport from future rhetorical contests if the moderators silence the audiences, as Brian Williams did last night in Florida. On "Fox and Friends" this morning, the former speaker of the House threatened to boycott the debates if "the media" insists on "stifling free speech."His performance in last night's debate wasn't as sharp as in previous matchups, and even [Newt] Gingrich blames the lack of audience support. ... “We’re going to serve notice on future debates,” he told Fox. “We’re just not going to allow that to happen. That’s wrong. The media doesn’t control free speech. People ought to be allowed to applaud if they want to.”

Republican presidential candidates, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, left, stands next to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich before a Republican Presidential debate Monday Jan. 23, 2012, at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

Mitt Romney has enhanced his image as a front-runner by staying above the fray during a run of Republican debates, but in Tampa he sharply abandons that approach to unleash a withering attack on Newt Gingrich.

Gingrich Used Payroll Tax Ploy Often Attacked By IRS
  Janet Novack, Forbes Staff - Jan. 22, 2012

. . .  It appears that he is not paying his fair share of Medicare tax,’’ Robert E. McKenzie, a partner in the Chicago law firm of Arnstein & Lehr LLP concluded, in an email to Forbes, after reviewing Gingrich’s 2010 tax return. McKenzie, a past chairman of the Employment Tax Committee of the American Bar Association Tax Section and a member of the IRS’ Advisory Council, added:  “There are a multitude of cases where the IRS has successfully challenged the improper tax strategy of this candidate and his accountants. Service businesses are only allowed to distribute a fair return on investment from an S corp. as profits exempt from Medicare taxes. The remainder of profits must be paid as salary subject to a 2.9% Medicare tax levy.”

The endorsement came on the eve of the final Sunday worship services before the Jan. 21 primary in South Carolina, where 60 percent of 2008 Republican primary voters said in exit polls that they consider themselves “born again” or evangelical Christians

Is America ready for a Mormon President?
Jan. 14, 2011 COLUMBIA, S.C. - Mitt Romney faced down the question of whether America is ready for a Mormon President on Friday night in Hilton Head, South Carolina. During a town meeting, Betty Treen took the microphone to ask the former Massachusetts Governor point blank about his faith. Following is a quote from Mitt Romney:
"Our nation was founded on the principle in some respects, of religious tolerance and liberty in this land, and so we welcome people of other faiths, and I happen to believe Jesus Christ is the son of God and my Savior."  Read more

Newt Gets Booed at Huckabee Forum for Criticizing Romney

  by Nick Kalman | January 14, 2012

The forum, hosted by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on Fox News, barred the candidates from attacking or even mentioning each other.Newt Gingrich paid little attention to that rule. When asked to "defend the vilification of companies willing to put capital at risk in order to save failing companies," the former speaker zeroed in on Mitt Romney.

"Governor Romney ran saying he created 100,000 jobs in the private sector. ... I believe it's fair to ask that records be clear." The hit on Romney backfired. Before Huckabee could finish trying to stop him, the audience drowned out Gingrich with boos. The rest of the GOP field didn't mention their Republican rivals but were equally peppered with questions from the undecided voters Read more on

Newt Gingrich's Kamikaze campaign

   by Peter Bella - Washington Times (a conservative newspaper)
   Peter Bella knows the same Speaker Gingrich which I have known and followed for many years. For the past two days, I have personally been informed by Republicans in Gainesville and Hall County that "our" county is supporting Newt."  In fact, at a Hall GOP meeting this morning, I was handed a "Newt" sticker by a member of the Executive Committee.  It is not surprising in Hall County and Gainesville that Republicans are backing Newt since Governor Deal is Newt's state Campaign Manager (or some such title) and this is Deal's permanent home. They seem to feel an obligation to support the Governor's choice in all things.  However, there are some of us who have the courage to support other candidates and vote our own convictions

Franklin Graham: Romney's Mormonism Doesn't Bother 
   Me
By Paul Stanley | Christian Post Reporter

 
Evangelical minster Franklin Graham said voters should look past a candidate’s personal religion when considering whom they should support for office. Graham offered his advice in a recent interview with The Christian Broadcasting Network when asked if Christians could vote for omeone who is a Mormon.
     “Yes, the fact that Mitt Romney is a Mormon doesn’t bother me at all,” Graham told CBN. Two candidates seeking the GOP nomination for president who are Mormons are Romney and Jon Huntsman. They are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Graham said voters should select a candidate who is most qualified, beyond anything else.
     “You can have the nicest guy and he can be a Christian and just wonderful but have absolutely no clue as to how to run a country, you don’t want that … Mitt Romney is a very capable fellow, I know him. I know Newt Gingrich, another capable person; Michele Bachmann, a very capable lady; Rick Santorum, I like a lot, very gifted guy, a very sharp person and so there are some good candidates out there.” Graham’s primary concern about the 2012 election is that he feels the country is heading in the wrong direction, saying the next election is “the most critical election of my lifetime.”

Governor’s Ga. 400 plan sparks alarm - AJC Jan. 14, 2011
A new project, announced by Gov. Nathan Deal in his State of the State address this week, plans to convert the highway’s shoulder into a new travel lane between Holcomb Bridge Road and the North Springs MARTA station. The pilot project breaks a new path for easing congestion on Georgia’s highways. But it means the loss of a speedy bypass route for ambulances, police cars and firetrucks that drive on the wide right shoulder when the road is congested. Emergency services operators in the area expressed alarm.

“It’s the obvious,” said Sandy Springs Police Chief Terry Sult, talking about the ability to quickly respond to calls or safely patrolling Ga. 400. “Where do you stop a car if everybody’s using that lane?” Read more

Huckabee: Santorum Could Go All The Way

 

Thursday, 05 Jan 2012 04:59 PM  By Jim Meyers and Ashley Martella

 - Newsmax.com
 
Will anti-fat bias affect the 2012 election?
Newt Gingrich’s girth surely could be a target in the race to be the Republican presidential nominee. Will it cost him? “Study after study after study shows the same thing. Weight bias is a highly prevalent form of discrimination, more common than other forms that have protection within our laws,” says Yale University’s Rebecca Puhl (Associated Press)

. . . The former House Speaker may have already reached the same conclusion on his own. While stumping at an Iowa ice cream shop last month, Mr. Gingrich reportedly eyed a root beer float and joked, “I have certain weaknesses, as you can tell. Food is No. 1, 2 and 3.” (Ed. comment:  The Speaker's weight problem is even more emphasized when he is next to his young tall skinny wife #3 (23 years younger than Newt) ALWAYS with him on TV and in event photos. The cartoonists are having a field day with Newt's weight.)

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Newt came out there and he's mad. Newt is ticked off.  He is livid over the negative ads that Romney ran. Well, Romney's PAC ran against him in Iowa.  And it's true, it's safe to say that Romney's ads took Newt out.  Newt was at the top of the heap going into Iowa.  Those ads worked.  They took the bottom right out. Newt's foundation just plummeted.  And Newt is angry about it, and it came across that he was angry.  And some people say that that's not good, and Snerdley said, "It's not, it's not good. You're supposed to be ebullient and optimistic and positive and so forth.  You're not supposed to get mad out there on the campaign trail. It shows intemperance, lack of judgment," so forth and so on.  Read more.

Maybe Newt Gingrich’s marital history isn’t the leading predictor of his performance as president.

And the women he chose to marry do tell us something about his evolution as a person. Read more

This weekend, our longtime friend Martha Zoller officially kicked off her campaign for congress in her own hometown of Gainesville, GA. We welcome her decision to run for office, something people have been asking her to do for years and, because we know she supports the troops, we pledge our support to her candidacy.

Martha's kickoff  event was well attended by veterans, military families, tea partiers and radio listeners, as she is a household name in the community.

"Every morning for the past 15 years, folks have turned on their radio and heard Martha's conservative message. People already know what she stands for." said her campaign manager Ryan Mahoney at the rally in downtown Gainesville.

At MAF we look for candidates who support the troops, that's our most important issue, and we know that Martha is a huge supporter of our military and their missions to keep America safe and free.
She's so committed that she's traveled to Iraq TWICE to help the troops and Gold Star families that she cares for so much!

Presidential Preference Primary for Georgia set for Tuesday,
March 6, 2012


S
ecretary of State Brian Kemp has announced that Georgia’s 2012 presidential preference primary will be held on Tuesday, March 6, 2012.  Secretary Kemp was given the authority to set the presidential primary date via a modification to Georgia’s statutory code during the 2011 legislative session. Substantial rules changes by the RNC leading up to the 2012 Republican National Convention resulted in states that are “winner-take-all” states like Georgia not having the ability to hold their primaries without losing ½ of their potential delegates if the primary was held before April 1, 2012.

Behind the scenes, much planning and labor was completed by the Georgia Republican Party to facilitate this decision. Secretary Kemp worked closely with party leaders prior to his formal announcement. The GAGOP Rules Committee and State Committee convened to approve a rule change that allowed the Secretary Kemp the flexibility necessary to ensure that Georgia voters would remain a strong voice in the 2012 primary process as we select our next President.

Prior to the rules change, Georgia was a winner-take-all system and would have lost ½ of its delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa if the primary was held before April 1, 2012. The proposed change to the GAGOP allows Georgia’s delegates to be allotted on a proportional basis if the Georgia primary was held before April 1, 2012.

The GAGOP commends Secretary of State Brian Kemp for his efforts and diligence in the selection of March 6, 2012 as the presidential preference primary date in Georgia.
