"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Newt Gingrich: Serial Hypocrisy

This was put together by the Ron Paul campaign but it could have been done by any number of members of Congress who served with Gingrich when he was Speaker of the House. You will hear the same thing from a number of the men and women Republican conservatives on Gingrich. He is not a conservative on a lot of issues and plays up to Democrats on global warming and healthcare for starters.

One thing is obvious that Newt Gingrich will never be known as a small government conservative. If you don't believe Ron Paul, then ask Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) and former Congressman Joe Scarborough or Steve Largent who served with Newt. Without a coalition of Republicans opposing Gingrich in the House and Lott in the Senate, the Congressional leadership would have agreed with Clinton in all of his spending agenda.

Was sent this in email today by a friend of mine who I agree with his comments  100%:
He is an arrogant self-promoter, more interested in publicity and profit
than responsible governance (thus his partnerships with Hillary, Pelosi,
and Barney Frank's Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac), and he has zero
experience as chief executive of a town, city, or state.

No one has the slightest idea what he would do as president, if he has
the skills to lead, and what he would do when things don't go his way -
his history is to be petty and pouty and to blame others ... remind you
of anyone?
Just who is supporting Gingrich?  He sure wouldn't appeal to most conservatives.  Guess that is what happens when you are a former Fox News pundit and they decide to push you.  Ideology doesn't matter, it is the fact you are aligned with Fox News.  When asked a question he drones on and on so much when he is finally finished you are going, "What did he say?"  A major problem is that he loves to trash Republicans like Paul Ryan and curry favor with Democrats more than Republicans.  Why is he considered a conservative?  Cannot believe I agree with Ron Paul but he is correct on Newt.   Those who know him best are saying that when they served with him, he was definitely not a small government conservative.
