Back during early 2008 (pre the Tea Party Movement, I might add), it was Newt Gingrich who said "The Reagan era is over. The George W. Bush era is over. We're at a point in time when we're about to start redefining -- as a number of people started talking about, starting to redefine -- the nature of the Republican Party, in response to what the country needs."
Now that Newt has seen where the wind is blowing (sometime after the infamous summer of 2009, and the shellacking he got for endorsing Dede Scozzafava in the NY-23 special election over the Tea Party favorite Doug Hoffman), he has radically changed his tune. Sound familiar?
But, that's not the worst of it. Back during his reign in the House of Representatives, under his Contract for America, he made so made about turns, it was unrecognizable. He has cozied up with some of the left's most popular: Al "race baiting" Sharpton, Nancy "Stretch" Pelosi, Al "Global Warming" Gore, cozying up with Hillary[Care] Clinton, and playing goverment spending footsie with the other Clinton in the 1990s.
Here's a good one, from Devvy Kidd "Mr. Gingrich struts around like he's Thomas Jefferson. Nothing could be farther from the truth."
Another informative reminder is the JBS Exposé "The Real Newt Gingrich".
Newt's numbers are creeping up -- No thank you. I keep looking for that fresh blood, kinda Reaganesque. Do we really need another Jeckle-Hyde president? I think not.
