Tag: Newt Gingrich
Rep. Jim Moran blasts back at Newt Gingrich's fearmongering demagoguery, including his wacked-out assertion that the Obama administration is "willfully blind to the nature of our enemies and the forces which threaten America."
Moran also, correctly, labels the Bush administration as "soft and stupid on terror." He points out, correctly, that America is safer and stronger under President Obama than it was under Bush/Cheney. He calls Gingrich a "fraud" on pretty much everything and "one of the worst Speakers in American history." All true; I'd just add the words "insane" and "bigot" to the list of adjectives describing Gingrich.
By the way, Jim Moran certainly has his flaws, but appearances like this make me proud that he's my congressman.
What did Gingrich do this time? Check this out and please explain how this isn't parody, satire, or snark. As I wrote on Doug Mactaconis' Facebook page, "that has to be a parody, no serious/sane human being could actually write that." Doug's response? "Ummm, this is Newt."
Doug is absolutely right on this one: Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House and future Republican candidate for President of the United States, is clearly insane. On the other hand, at least he doesn't make up words and compare himself to Shakespeare like another 2012 Republican frontrunner did recently. What a bunch of [fill in the blank]s! LOL
P.S. I almost forgot about this -- "A Conversation With Bob McDonnell and Newt Gingrich."
Based on these comments, Newt Gingrich has placed himself clearly, beyond any doubt, into the "completely insane" category. By all rights, he should be politically radioactive to his fellow Republican politicians. Which raises the question, why is Bob McDonnell sitting down with him for an interview and, recently, joining him for a health care forum? Will McDonnell denounce his pal, Newt Gingrich, for comparing Democrats to the Nazis and Stalin? Don't hold your breath.
UPDATE: See after the "flip" for thoughts by former Republican Congresswoman Susan Molinari. In short, she thinks Gingrich's comments are "crazy" and "outrageous."
