That was a long time ago. Newt is NOT what he was 15 years ago. He has turned into a political chameleon who has sold out the conservatives of the party time and time again in recent memory.
For crying out loud read up on the man. The evidence is everywhere...The NY state election, The ad with Pelosi, his support for single payer mandate with healthcare and his own book on environmentalism and his support for the left wing causes on global warming!
When we mention that Perry was a Democrat 20 years ago, its supposed to matter, but when we say that Newt made some great accomplishments 15 years ago, it doesn’t?
