Omar Villafranca, a NBC reporter in the Dallas area, tweeted this picture:
Here is a short portion of Newt's speech:
Gingrich summarized the focus of his campaign by saying, “The hallmark of this campaign is going to be to go into every neighborhood…look people in the eye and say ‘would you rather that your children had a paycheck or a food stamp?’… I think you are going to find that people of every ethnic background in this country” will want their children to be “independent, self-reliant” and able to pursue the American dream.After that last picutre, Ben Smith of Politico tweeted: "We're headed inevitably into a Newt cycle, right?"
He also repeated something he has said multiple times on the campaign trail that he would aggressively challenge Obama to several Lincoln-Douglass-style debates with a timekeeper but no moderator. If Obama declined, Gingrich promised to follow Obama around the country, city-by-city, and respond to every comment that Obama makes. “Everywhere the President goes, I will appear. I will methodically take apart every Obama speech until he agrees to debate me…I don’t believe he can defend either his performance or his principles or his policies.”
Byron York of the Washington Examiner replied: "Feels that way."
