I am speechless...forget his record...forget his lobbying... Just listen to a politician on what he says he is going to do and all will be well!!! Newt Gingrich is 100% progressive establishment...HE HAS EVEN SAID IT. Get your head out of the sand...time is running out.
You are kidding, right? You are the one needing to pull your head out of somewhere. Forget the record?!! Again, ARE YOU KIDDING?! Have YOU forgot Newt's record - leading the Republican Revolution in 1994, author of the wildly popular and successful Contract with America. He pretty much game-planned Reagan's re-election in 1984, and that was after Reagan took up Newt's suggestion in 1980 to ask Americans if they were better off after 4 years of Carter, which made him the slam-dunk winner in the debate.
You should be speechless because you don't have a clue. Let me repeat - NOT A CLUE - of what you are speaking of. Has Newt made mistakes? Sure, so did Reagan, but the final tally shows that Reagan, and then Newt are the 2 most important and effective conservatives during the modern movement. Period. End of discussion. It is not arguable. There is nobody alive even close to the conservative accomplishments of Newt, and that's before he takes the White House. Oh sure, some conservatives can talk a great game, but I want someone who can GET IT DONE. Newt GOT IT DONE before, and there's no reason to think he can't do it again.

To compare Gingrich and Reagan in the same sentence exposes what you don’t know.
Gingrich is NOT a conservative. He is a progressive - self admitted progressive. Maybe that is what you mean by the “modern movement” - maybe you are really a progressive and not a true conservative either.
Gingrich had a lot to do with Obamacare, with the medicare reimbursements for the death panels. Newt co-sponsored over 400 bills with Pelosi and was happy to do it. Newt was all cozy over global warming - a true hallmark of the progressive movement.
Newt is BIG GOVERNMENT, BIG SPENDING ALL DAY LONG.
A victory for Romney, Gingrich or Obama in 2012 spells the end of America.
Funny how you had to go back over 30 years to find something good Newt did. Yeah back in 1984 and 1994 I was a huge Gingrich fan and supporter but the cancer that is DC got the better of him.
Look at what he has done since...

(To err is human, to really foul things up takes a Democrat, don't expect the GOP to have the answer!)
