December 12, 2011 | Statement from Newt Gingrich
Dear Friend and Supporter,
Pundits in the media predicted that Saturday night’s debate would become a slugfest. They were chomping at the bit hoping to see the Republican challengers to Barack Obama tear each other down. I’m proud to say, however, that this campaign continued to focus on big ideas and on the failed policies of the Obama administration. Let me be clear, everyone who was on that stage Saturday night would make a better President than Obama, and I am grateful for the opportunity to make the case to the American people that I am uniquely qualified to hold the office of President of the United States.
I want to highlight one thing mentioned during the debate. Sometimes it’s helpful to have a President of the United States who has the courage to tell the truth. And I want to reiterate a promise I made during the debate: Like Ronald Reagan, I will tell the truth, even if it risks making the timid uncomfortable. By honestly confronting the problems facing this country, we can reach real solutions that will not only improve the economy, but will create jobs, make America safer, and improve our standing around the world.
Our path to the nomination is clear. We will continue to focus on big ideas and on rebuilding the America we love. We will continue to focus on the failed, big-government policies of Barack Obama. Most importantly, we will not let this campaign devolve into personal attacks, because the American people deserve a debate worthy of the office of President of the United States. With your support, I know that we can win not only the Republican nomination for President, but we can win the White House.
