To compare Gingrich and Reagan in the same sentence exposes what you dont know.
On the contrary, it shows what I DO know. I know that Reagan led the Reagan Revolution, aided by Gingrich in the 1980s, and that Newt continued the conservative vision with the Republican Revolution that started in 1994. Newt was the architect of that, and every single item on the Contract with American was checked off in the 1st 100 days of Newt's speakership. So, no, I don't have to go back more than 30 years to find something good Newt did. All I have to do is look at the last time he was in office. In case your calculator broken, the mid-90's is actually less than 30 years ago.
If you can't give credit where credit is due, that is a problem with your honesty, integrity and/or intelligence, not mine. I am just stating fact.
But, please, go ahead and humor me - what living conservative has DONE more for conservatism? Yeah, forget the talking points and platitudes. Look at the RECORD. It's not even close, which is why I'm assuming you haven't come up with a name thus far. There is no living conservative that has DONE more in office than Newt Gingrich. That is FACT. Again, it's not even close, and it's not arguable.
He was extremely effective as SOH during the Republican Revolution. I've already detailed all that he accomplished in a previous lengthy post. JimRob said it was a "must read". I'm afraid though, it was a waste of time since the very next day you see new idiots making the same lame arguments that are laughably false.
I give up. Some people can't be schooled. Yes, Newt isn't perfect, so he must be a RINO. Forget all that he accomplished for the conservative cause the last time when he was in power. All that matters is that he sat on a couch with Nancy Pelosi. *YAWN*.
You Newt haters, feel free to continue in your delusions and ignorance. Luckily, it looks like enough conservatives have the brains vote for someone that can knock out Romney, and then beat Obama like a red-headed step-kid.
Cry and stomp your feet all you want. Gingrich is a brilliant political strategist, helping Reagan in 1980 and 1984, then leading the GOP Revolution in 1994, kicking asses all the way, and he's about to do the same to Romney and Obama. I don't know why so many supposed conservative "experts" and pundits worry that Newt will self-destruct. Uh, he did manage to win a few elections, helped Reagan get elected twice with brilliant strategy, was the author of most brilliant election stragegy - Contract with America - in memory. Yeah, we don't want THAT guy being our nominee! LOL
Get on board, get out of the way, or get run over. Makes no difference to me.

Give me a break...spend some time in the Library of Congress Thomas Database and learn about the bills Gingrich co-sponsored with Pelosi.
He did 10X’s as much for the liberals and progressives then HE EVER did for conservatives.
Its 1775 again glad to see you would have picked the Tories to work with instead of standing with the real Patriots that made America happen!

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