Newt Gingrich on GOP Unity against the "Obama Oppression"
Former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Secretary of State Colin Powell have been reported to be at odds over the approach of the Republican party. Powell has been calling for more moderation while Cheney argues for a more agressive approach.
A Fox News article summarizes Newt Gingrich's response to the feud: "A majority Republican party will have lots of debates within the party. That is the nature of majority parties." Yes, there will always be healthy dispute within a family, but right now it is imperative for Republican loyalists to come together in order to retake the majority.
We already know what does not work- "bureaucrats managing companies does not work, politicians dominating the economy does not work."
In accordance with Fox News, "Gingrich also said President Obama's plan to fix the economy through stimulus spending and government intervention to boost companies like General Motors has already failed."
Gingrich filled in as the GOP's de facto leader, initially extended to Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, at a Republican congressional fundraiser Monday. This Republican function is one of the GOP's largest fundraisers of the year, attracting "major donors and lawmakers whose support will be key to a presidential campaign."
Actor Jon Voight hosted the dinner and reprimanded Obama saying "he was 'embarrassed' by the president and that Obama's leadership would cause the 'downfall' of the country. Voight continued his rebuke, saying that Obama is a "false prophet" and his administration is the "Obama Oppression."
Gingrich called Voight's judgments "a rallying cry until the next elections in 2010." One thing is for sure- the GOP will need all the rousing it can get in order to thwart the looming "Obama Oppression."
