Gingrich plans major speeches, including one on space

(CNN) – Riding the momentum of his South Carolina win on Saturday, Newt Gingrich said Sunday he planned a week of big speeches offering “big solutions for a big country.”

“I’ll be at the space coast in Florida this week giving a speech — a visionary speech — on the United States going back into space in the John F. Kennedy tradition,” the former House Speaker said on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal.”

He said the days leading to Florida's Jan. 31 primary would include other speeches on health care, housing, the economy, Cuba and Latin America.

“I hope really once a day to do something very positive and clear about positive ways of moving forward as a country to get back on the right track,” Gingrich said.

Also taking to podiums this week will be President Barack Obama and Gingrich’s main rival for the GOP nomination, Mitt Romney. The former Massachusetts governor announced plans for both a “prebuttal” and rebuttal to the president’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

    Does anyone who votes for ginrich stop and think his 'cabinet' could incude one or two of the 'bush' boys, cheney...and the list goes on. Need to think about the wives and how much they will spend redecorating. Think!

    It's funny how FoxNews has those from one side and now I read CNN who hosts the other side, it's too bad neither of side can understand that you CAN think for yourselves and don't have to side with one party.

    The only thing Newt has to be is NOT obama. He is a much better debater, and nobama will be stuck trying to find the
    place on the teleprompter to tell him the answer. I predict Nobama will find a way not to debate Newt.

    First, let's keep fixing the mess the GOP created here in the US. Dream on, Newt, you won't be seeing the Oval office in any kind of leadership role. Would love however, to see Obama debate ole Newie. Obama will kick his sorry old behind.

    I agree we should improve the space program. For every dollar our nation spends, less than 0.6 of one penny is spent on the space program. People don't seem to realize that. It is miniscule! The amount of knowledge, science, innovations that come from that field have changed our daily lives...people just don't understand that. It will improve the economy immensely.
