Revisionist history is in vogue now that Newt Gingrich is surging in the polls due to his good showing in the recent debates and winning the South Carolina primary thanks to the stupidity of that state’s voters.
Really, how can a state that is predominately conservative christian vote for a guy who was a serial adulterer, was run out of office on ethics violations and was enough of a hypocrite to try to impeach Bill Clinton while he himself was having affair number two and was a check kiting specialist while a member of Congress? Goes to show you how ignorant the voters are.
NewNewt now ties himself to every great thing that was done in the last thirty years from electing Reagan to lowering taxes, curing Polio and helping the Red Sox win the World Series in 2004.
I will give him his props for the following: Capital gains tax cut in 1997 even though it helps the rich. Helping to balance the budget in 1998, Welfare reform and the Congressional Accountability act of 1995. Which of course did not help with his ethics violation “act” of 1997 that got him booted out of office.
He lights up when he has one over you whether you are running against him or you are a reporter who he is chastising or abusing. He has the small man, small dick syndrome
He is a mean-spirited blowhard who thinks by saying “I made a mistake” and by going to confession at his newly acquired religion of Catholicism he can wash away all his sins, Hmmmmmm maybe that is why he and his new wife who by the way was his old mistress picked that religion.
The major beef I have is that NewNewt has reinvented himself as a Washington outsider,that is just hilarious,he could not be more of an insider if he crawled up Nancy Pelosi’s pants. Hope you are not reading this during breakfast, sorry.
He is harping on the elite while he is one himself, has a net worth of $6.5 million, made a “salary” of $3.1 million in 2010 lives in an exclusive community in Mc Lean, Va. and is a preferred customer at Tiffany’s.
This guy has more memory lapses than a crack whore on Prozac. And while you are at it Newt, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease give the word “fundamental” a break, we all know you are a college professor and have a BA from Emory University and PhD from Tulane but do not try to sound so elitist, Ha!
I think the Dems want Newt to win the Republican/Obstructionist party nomination because Ol’Newt or NewNewt wont have a chance against Obama.
