Gingrich sketches Day 1 agenda for his presidency (LOL)


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- To hear Newt Gingrich tell it, the dramatic conservative change he promises will begin even before he is sworn in as president in 2013.

"My goal would be by the end of that first day, about the time that President Obama arrives back in Chicago, that we will have dismantled about 40 percent of his government," he tells audiences.

Obama's health care bill? Repealed.

Legislation that toughened regulations on Wall Street after the economic collapse of 2008? History.

White House czars? Gone.

p.s. Be sure to read the full article on the link above - Newt's promise on the total number of executive orders he will issue on his first day is hilarious!
And someone needs to remind Newt that the number of czars (advisers) that President Obama has is basically no different than the number that George W had.

1. He is right about one thing.

Democrats should campaign as a team.

3. But it's Obama who's behaving like a dictator?

I've given up looking for consistency in Newt or the Tea Party.

6. Well, he's been a Washington outsider since he's living there these past 30 yrs.

 

And he's been a faithful husband to each of his three wives. So he should be able to use illegal, unconstitutional, dictatorial powers to undo Obama's Constitutionally-enacted laws.

Perfectly consistent.

8. Right, and we all know how ethical he is, so with all this factored in,

he would have one hell of a busy day.

4. Keep sketching, Newt. Maybe you can go to art school after you lose the campaign.

7. On inauguration day 2013 no one will even mention Newt's name in passing.

9. I caught only part of Newt's victory speech

His teabagging audience was interesting. Mostly, they cheered wildly at his proposed day-one antics, like repealing "Obama-care". But he was met with mostly silence when he proposed cutting aid to countries that provide abortions, so maybe not a huge teabag driver. And the cheering was subdued when he said he would abolish Sarbanes-Oxley, probably since it doesn't mean much to most people, esp teabaggers.

Just give him the presidency, 61 senate seats, and the house majority, and he'll do great things! Izzat too much to ask??!!?

12. I may have done some undeserved teabagger-bashing

I've created data dumps and other reports to support my (former) employer's "SarbOx" audits. It was a lot of work, rework, etc. The audit process is daunting, and I think only a professional accountant could really understand what Sarbanes-Oxley is, and I'm not sure who could understand if it is accomplishing its goals (eg, ensuring accuracy of financial reporting).

It's a very wonky thing.
