The GOP Presidential Candidates will square off again tonight – for the 11th time – in a debate on CNN, and also sponsored by The Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute. The debate will be held in the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. The debate will focus on Foreign Policy and National Security issues, but not exclusively:

CNN: The Republican presidential candidates face off Tuesday night just a few blocks from the place they all hope to call home: the White House.

The candidates share the stage at DAR Constitution Hall, just down the street from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. CNN is teaming up with leading Republican-leaning think tanks Heritage Foundation and American Enterprise Institute to host a debate that focuses heavily on national security and foreign policy issues, but which will also include top economic concerns, including the failure of the congressional super committee to find agreement to cut $1.2 trillion from the country’s long-term debt.

The debate is the 11th major showdown between the Republican candidates and the first in 10 days.

It’s also the first in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is firmly among the front-runners in national surveys, deadlocked with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for the top spot in the nomination race. . . . Read More

Incomparable Conservative Bill Bennett has written a piece that previews tonight’s debate, focusing on the new frontrunner status of Newt Gingrich:

CNN: Heading into Tuesday night’s CNN debate, co-hosted by the Heritage Foundation and American Enterprise Institute, the revolving GOP presidential field has a new front-runner: Newt Gingrich.

Newt’s rise has been a long time coming. Early on, his candidacy barely had a pulse. His campaign staff resigned en masse in June. The extravagant Tiffany’s bills were easy fodder for his critics. And, worst of all, he attacked Paul Ryan on “Meet The Press,” calling his budget proposal “right wing social engineering.”

At that point, conservative commentators, including myself, were ready to write Gingrich off entirely. But since then, thanks to his own determination and energy (and intellect), Gingrich has rebounded admirably. He’s become in his own way the spokesman for the GOP presidential field. . . . Read More

Here is video of Bill Bennett speaking at the Values Voter Summit where he suggested what he thinks would be a great bumper sticker about Barack Obama for the 2012 Presidential Election:

“If you voted for him the last time to prove you are not a racist, you must vote against him this time to prove you are not an idiot.”

Bill Bennett Suggests Bumper Sticker : “If you voted for him the last time to prove you are not a racist, you must vote against him this time to prove you are not an idiot.” – Video 10/8/11

Here is video of conservative Bill Bennett speaking at the 2011 Values Voter Summit, where he said very bluntly that President Obama is bringing America “down,” and is “harming us.” He said, Obama “must go.”

Bill stated what he said would be a perfect bumper sticker:

“If you voted for him the last time to prove you are not a racist, you must vote against him this time to prove you are not an idiot.”

Bennett also defended, without using his name, Mitt Romney, from the statement of Texas Pastor Robert Jeffress, who yesterday, in introducing Gov. Rick Perry, said Evangelical Christians should not vote for just a good, moral person, but for a committed follower of Jesus Christ. After leaving the stage, Jeffress confirmed he believes Romney’s Mormon faith is a “cult,” and that Christians should not support a candidate who is not a follower of Jesus Christ. Jeffress did not say a non-Christian does not have a right to run for President, but that Evangelical Christians should vote for someone who is a believer in the historic Christian faith. Rick Perry’s campaign distanced itself from the Jeffress comments. In his remarks today, Bennett said Jeffress had done Perry no favors, and had overshadowed the speeches of all the GOP Candidates who spoke at the conference.

Here is audio from Bill Bennett’s Morning in America where Bill talked with Newt Gingrich about his comments attacking Paul Ryan’s Plan to reform Medicare and save it for future generations.

Gingrich tried mightily to convince Bennett he did not really say what he said, but it was unconvincing at best. Bennett confronted Gingrich about the fact he “equated” Ryan’s plan with Obama’s plan – both being “radical social engineering.” Bennett said to Newt that Ryan is “in the fight of his life” right now, and “you are shooting at him from behind.”

Bill Bennett advised Gingrich:

“My advice to you – to salvage your candidacy – is to say, ‘I blew it.’ ‘I just misspoke – people misunderstood me because I misspoke. I said the wrong words and I’m sorry,’ and put this thing behind you. I think that’s your only shot, or I think you are done, Newt. I honestly do. You’ve got to deal with this, because it’s not working. What you’re doing is not working.”

Gingrich responded to Bennett by saying he took his input as “honest advice,” and that he “spoke too strong.”

_______________

It is clear that Newt Gingrich simply does not believe that Paul Ryan and Republicans should be trying to move as fast as they are in putting forward a proposal to do something about Medicare. He is certainly entitled to his view. But he should not have attacked Ryan on Meet the Press of all places, and by using phrases like, “Right-wing social engineering.” It’s sad to see someone struggle like he is right now after so many years of service to the cause of conservatism (in most cases).

Here is video of the great Bill Bennett, former Secretary of Education under Ronald Reagan, interviewing Rep.-Elect Sean Duffy, who won Wisconsin’s 7th Congressional District Seat in this year’s Midterm Elections. This is the seat vacated by retiring Democrat Rep. David Obey. Duffy won by a 52%-44% margin over Democrat Julie Lassa. It is great to hear the resolve in Duffy’s voice that he, and other newly elected Republicans, are going to Washington to stand on the same principles they ran on. Bennett closed by telling Duffy that “power does not always corrupt absolutely,” as many people often say. He told Duffy it does not have to be that way.

It will be interesting to watch and see how this new class of Representatives do.

Here is video of Bill Bennett doing his radio show, “Bill Bennett’s Morning in America,” where he talked with Peter Wehner, Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, about the results of the 2010 Midterm Elections.

Bennett pointed out that two-thirds of incumbent Democrats who lost actually spent more money than the GOP challenger who defeated them. Both Bennett and Wehner agreed that the resounding GOP victory was a complete repudiation of President Obama’s policies and agenda by the American people.

Here is a powerful statement by Bill Bennett on Islam, and the reality of the way things are in America. Bennett was speaking at the Values Voter Summit this morning, and in this video he takes on the popular notion today that “America is Islamophobic.” Bennett pointedly says that is simply not the case. He cites statistics showing that there are vastly more crimes against Jewish people in America than there are against Muslims in America. Yet, no thinking person would call America an “anti-semitic” nation. Bennett flatly states that “America is not Islamophobic.”

On the contrary, Bennett makes the case that so much violence and acts of terrorism are being done in the name of Islam around the world today that it puts the burden on Islam to “examine itself.” Bennett contended it is “Islam that needs to change – reform.”

Click here to Hear Emerson’s Interview with Bennett

Here is blockbuster information that Steve Emerson – head of the “Investigative Project on Terrorism” – says will soon be released on the Imam behind the Ground Zero Mosque – Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf.

Emerson said his project has unearthed hours of audio tapes of Imam Rauf that show the following (Via Weasel Zippers Via Atlas Shrugs):

Defending wahhabism – a puritanical version of Islam that governs Saudi Arabia

Calling for the elimination of Israel by claiming a one-nation state, meaning no more Jewish State.

Defending Bin Laden’s violence

Once this blows wide open, it will be interesting to see how the Obama Administration explains sending this Imam to the Middle East on the taxpayer dime, and why Obama would support the building of the Ground Zero Mosque.
