Newt Gingrich has become, and well he should be, the Benedict Arnold of the 2012 Presidential Primaries for the Republican standard bearer. I have mentioned before Nancy Pelosi’s speech bemoaning the fact that the GOP does not have the same shared “values” that she and other Republicans have had in the past, due to the TEA Party Congressmen and women and Senators who were sent to save this Country in 2010. As A Conservative American, I implore the TEA Party to take back the Republican Party. Nancy felt quite comfortable throwing out that plea, because there has not been nary a hair of difference in the parties when it comes to growing the government bigger and bigger. Newt certainly caused an uproar, and disgusted many TEA Party Conservatives, when he did his commercial imploring those on the right to get with the global warming scam, and grow government ever larger with his and Nancy’s plans. Simply, Disgusting, SHAME ON YOU Newt Gingrich. Having Newt Gingrich on the same page, quietly hiding his liberalism in a warped view of Conservatism with Hillary Clinton (and since 2009) all of the Democrat Party, including the guy he wants to run against, Barack Hussein Obama, is one disgusting slip too many, for this Conservative. Dana Milbank from 2005, Hillary and her buddy Newt
Midway through his breakfast panel at the National Press Club yesterday, Newt Gingrich said, by way of aside, “I risk sounding not quite as right-wing as I should to fit the billing.”
Now, where would he get that idea? Maybe it was because he, architect of the 1994 Republican Revolution, was sitting down with the right’s bete noire , Hillary Rodham Clinton. Possibly it was because they were agreeing on health care proposals. And it almost certainly had something to do with Gingrich saying things like “Senator Clinton is exactly right” and “I think everything she just said I agree with” and “Hillary is so correct in the direction she laid out.”
In a town where the lion does not frequently lie with the lamb and swords are rarely used as plowshares, it was quite a sight to view the counterculture McGovernik making common cause with the leader of the vast right-wing conspiracy.
“We may be at the end of a 40-year cycle of bitterness,” Gingrich said. “I’ve spent enough of my life fighting. It would be nice to spend some time constructing, and I think that there’s a feel in the country that’s very similar.”
The budding friendship between Hillary and Newt — yesterday’s meeting was their second such joint appearance — offers some political rehab for both. Clinton, pariah of the right, wants to show moderation as she prepares for a likely presidential run. Gingrich, pariah of the left, wants to show moderation to earn status as an elder statesman.
You know what is really nauseating about the bolded portion of that Washington Post write up would be? It is that Democrats would NEVER submit to Conservatism, they always expect and why shouldn’t they that the GOP will come to their “middle” which is NEVER anywhere near the Constitution of the United States of America. I will not be shocked to see a third party candidate if Newt Gingrich somehow makes it through the primaries (I do not believe he will) because We The People can no longer stand by and let these two similar parties take our children and grandchildren down a path to slavery to pay for the extravagances of today’s baby boomers and yesterdays union members. $42,500 is what each of us alive today owe to pay for NPR, ACORN (before they changed names), welfare for the lazy, unemployment for 99 WEEKS, Social Security and Medicare that is a ponzi scheme’s whose time has arrived and Medicaid for the lazy again. This is unacceptable and Newt Gingrich helped get us here, while he enriched himself at the seat of the elite inner DC scavengers who hunt on OUR tax dollars for their fun!
