Newt Gingrich Answers The Attacks

Went to his answers site and found many responses that you will not find in the emails circulating around.  For the most part, the answers have helped to convince me that I could vote for him.  I did make the following comment on his site.

You are proud of your support for ethanol, most likely because of its effect on farmers income, but you fail to address the resultant effect the increase in corn prices has on the prices of a great number of food products. In my opinion, and the opinion of many others, corn is a food product and should be used to feed the masses. Ethanol from sources other than food sources are OK.

Excerpt: Setting the Record Straight:

Newt's Positions on the Issues and His Record

Now that our campaign to rebuild the America we love is gaining momentum, those who want to see us fail are on the attack, digging through Newt's past to try and stop us.

Newt, Callista and our campaign welcome the opportunity to tell the truth about Newt and set the record straight about Newt's positions on the issues as well as his record in public life and as a private citizen.

We've set up this page to arm you with answers to the attacks.

See an attack that is not answered? Let us know. This page will grow as we receive more feedback to help you answer the attacks.


Ryan Medicare Plan – Health Insurance Mandate – Ethanol – Fairness Doctrine – Global Warming/Cap and Trade – Immigration/DREAM Act – Agriculture Subsidies - TARP - Zero-Based Budgeting in Foreign Aid/Inclusion of Israel - Libya - Vote for Department of Education - Consistent Pro-Life Record - Second Amendment - Dede Scozzafava Endorsement – Government Shutdown – Ethics Investigation - Lobbying –Relationship with Freddie Mac - Personal Life

Newt is the only candidate in the race for the Republican nomination who has led a national movement to elect a Republican majority and then actually achieved substantial conservative reforms of the federal government, including welfare reform, balanced budgets, and tax cuts.

These historic reforms liberated the American people to create 11 million new jobs in just four years. Read more about the remarkable Newt Gingrich record here.

No candidate in the race can match Newt Gingrich’s 35-year career as a public figure advocating, explaining and achieving conservative reforms in government.

With this vast amount of experience, however, comes over 7,000 votes, over 1,500 speeches, thousands of television and radio appearances, thousands of articles and opeds and 24 books to scrutinize.
