Washington Briefing: 2006 Values Voter Summit
Omni Shoreham Hotel -- September 22-24, 2006         Main Page >
September 23, 2006--Former Speaker Newt Gingrich stated that, "America is defined by its relationship to God and it is impossible to explain America if you eliminate God."  Gingrich outlined "three large challenges":

-"the reality that God inspires America and we need to reassert that with vigor and with confidence;"

-"the need for a new birth of freedom among the poorest Americans;" and

-"the fact that we have enemies who hate us...and we need to return to the Reagan formula and say to them we understand you are enemies, therefore we are quite happy defeating you and we accept the challenge."
