To me the obvious choice for AG would be John Yoo. AngusT 08:16, 13 December 2011 (EST)

The position calls for an attorney, yes, but one who is ideally also knowledgeable about other fields, such as technology/engineering (so he can take into account the effects of rapid technological development on the law), education (so that he can make the tough decisions easy to understand for the regular guy), and religion (so that his decisions are guided by faith, a close knowledge of Biblical text is a must).

I'd go further and say that he has to be so knowledgable about the Bible that he can identify the liberal bias inserted by the famously leftist 17th century English. And given the importance of the internet in modern society a thorough knowledge of blogs, or even wikis, is essential too. --HarryPagett 20:11, 13 December 2011 (EST)

This article is just silly. CasparRH 08:48, 19 December 2011 (EST)


I think Hannity is the most likely for Press Secretary, and Ron Paul would be a great Treasury Secretary. He'd get us back on the Gold Standard, eliminate the Fed, and work to overturn Dodd-Frank. Should these be added to the article? AngusT 13:02, 19 December 2011 (EST)

Here are my picks, assuming Gingrich is President:

  • VP: Marco Rubio
  • State: Rick Perry
  • Treasury: Ron Paul
  • Defense: John McCain
  • Justice: John Yoo
  • Interior: Sarah Palin
  • Agriculture: unsure
  • Commerce: department will be eliminated
  • Labor: Scott Walker
  • Health and Human Services: Mike Huckabee
  • Housing and Urban Development: unsure
  • Transportation: unsure
  • Energy: Dick Cheney
  • Education: department will be eliminated
  • Veteran's Affairs: Bob Dole, if he isn't deemed too old
  • Homeland Security: Michelle Bachmann
  • Press Secretary: Sean Hannity (though he'd have to take a huge pay cut, so maybe not)
  • National Security Advisor: Paul Wolfowitz

I'd be curious to hear others' thoughts as well. AngusT 13:11, 19 December 2011 (EST)

Gingrich is not currently ranked #1 in Conservapedia's list of likely candidates to win the Republican nomination

How can one page argue that Mitt Romney is the likely nominee and another page argue that is Gingrich the likely winner of the presidential election? ScottDG 19:26, 25 December 2011 (EST)

Wikis are not blogs or books. Wikis are written by many people at different times. Not every entry should be expected to be completely consistent with every other entry. And, by the way, which page "argu[e]s that is [sic] Gingrich the likely winner of the presidential election"?--Andy Schlafly 20:11, 25 December 2011 (EST)
Forgive my typos/grammatical errors in the post above. I've been drinking since lunch. The article attached to this talk page reads: "The Gingrich Administration is the expected leadership of the Executive Branch of the United States government from 2013 to 2017, assuming that Newt Gingrich wins the Presidential Election 2012." The guy who wrote this, who is also the guy who moved Newt down to second place on that other page, expects and assumes that Newt is going to win the election. ScottDG 21:14, 25 December 2011 (EST)
Well, not to judge your lifestyle, but do you really think it's appropriate to drink, and then edit a wiki? But, anyway, the article states that this is the expected leadership of Gingrich if he wins the election. It doesn't state that he will win the election.--GFitz 21:18, 25 December 2011 (EST)

Is the "Gingrich Administration" still a thing?

Why not the "Santorum Administration" and/or the "Romney Administration," given the results in Iowa? ScottDG 09:12, 4 January 2012 (EST)

Gingrich/Perry wouldn't be a unity ticket in the vein of Reagan/Bush because although Newt and Perry are both formidable campaigners, Reagan picking H.W. Bush as a unity ticket brought the party together because they were top rivals getting the nomination because Reagan was from the conservative wing and H.W. was from the moderate wing (the left). That would be Gingrich/Romney, which I doubt will come about, wheras Newt and Perry are ideologically similar. I also don't think McCain's going to be his Secratary of Defense, too powerful a position for someone we the base won't like and this will be McCain's last Senate term anyways, plus he's getting too old. Here's my predictions assuming he gets the presidency:

  • VP: Rick Santorum (Gingrich's crowds want this, too), if not him, Rubio.
  • Agriculture: Rick Perry. I think he'll get a high-ranking position, but not sure which. Or Herman Cain.
  • Defense: Herman Cain or Rick Perry
  • Homeland Security or Treasury: Michele Bachmann (Who if she endorses, will endorse Santorum)
  • Justice: The people saying John Yoo may be on to something, but I'm not sure who.
  • State: May still go through with John Bolton, or he may not considering his Romney endorsement, in which case Donald Trump is it.
  • Interior: Sarah Palin

Remembering that normally less powerful & high-ranking cabinet secretaries don't have name recognition with most makes the rest trickier. I also hypothesis that if Mitt Romney gets the nomination, Chris Christie is likely to be his VP, even though he said he didn't want it. God bless, Jm920 20:39, 27 January 2012 (EST)
