It don’t get any nastier than sitting on a couch with Nancy Pelosi while shilling for Al Gore’s global warming hoax.
People continually claim Newt Gingrich is the “smartest guy in the party” but I don’t see it. Falling for a proven hoax, rather than following proven science is beyond me. Of course, this isn’t the only sign of less than intelligent actions by the former Speaker and soon to be 2012 presidential candidate.
Folks remember Newt being on the wrong side of history in the NY-23 special election back in 2009, where he backed far left DeDe Scozzafava over Doug Hoffman. That was bad enough, but it got worse. He actually doubled down calling the Margret Sanger Award winning leftist a “moderate” and fought against those who tried to school him.
Of course, he stuck his nose in the Tea Party’s business in 2010 when the NAACP started calling them racist, because the couldn’t compete with the Tea Party Americans on ideas. Newt’s brilliant idea was for the Tea Party leaders to sit down with the NAACP’s leader. All this would have done was give NAACP’s claim legitimacy.
Newt is still flirting with a 2012 run, having pushed back his announcement schedule. Well, he can run, but he can’t hide [from his troubling past].
