    Krauthammer on Gingrich's Presidential Aspirations: "Now it's Over"

    As the day has progressed, former Speaker of the House [COLOR=green !important][COLOR=green !important]Newt[/COLOR] Gingrich’s comments on Sunday’s “Meet the Press” attacking House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan’s budget plan have come to haunt him. On Monday’s “Special Report,” syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer became the latest conservative figure to criticize Gingrich, calling his bid for the presidency “over.”
    [/COLOR]
    But Gingrich called it right when he said that the Ryan plan was an attempt at "social engineering". For that, he will most likely be called a radical hippie commie Liberal now.

    Gingrich Backs Obamacare's Individual Mandate Requiring Health Insurance
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It looks like he is saying something from your links.
    Meet the Press Press Release

    On healthcare and the individual mandate: “I agree that all of us have a responsibility to... help pay for healthcare.”

    DAVID GREGORY: Now I know you've got big differences with what you call Obamacare, but back in 1993 on this program this is what you said about the individual mandate. Watch.

    GINGRICH ON VIDEO [1993]: “I am for people -- individuals, exactly like automobile insurance, individuals -- having health insurance and being required to have health insurance and I am prepared to vote for a voucher system which will give individuals, on a sliding scale, a government subsidy -- so ensure that everyone as individuals have health insurance.”

    DAVID GREGORY: What you advocate there is precisely what President Obama did with his healthcare legislation, is it not?

    NEWT GINGRICH: No. It's not precisely what he did. Fir-- in the first place, Obama basically is trying to replace the entire insurance system. Creating state exchange. Building a Washington-based model. Creating a federal system. I believe all of us-- and this is going to be a big debate. I believe all of us have a responsibility to help pay for healthcare. I think the idea that you--

    DAVID GREGORY: You agree with Mitt Romney on this point?

    NEWT GINGRICH: Yeah, I agree that all of us have a responsibility to pay-- help pay for healthcare. And-- and I think that-- there are ways to do it that make most libertarians relatively happy. I've said consistently-- where there's some requirement you either have health insurance or you post a bond or in some way you indicate you're going to be held accountable.

    This was back when this idea was considered a free-market and pro-capitalist way to reform healthcare and cap-and-trade was considered a free market way to eliminate sulfur in the atmosphere.

    Now, those same ideas that were once proposed and supported by conservatives are considered to be radical Commie ideas. Because Obama thought they were good ideas. Therefore, they are Commie ideas, and NOT free-market, capitalist ideas.

    It looks like Newt is trying for the independent vote which is all well and good. However, he just lost all real conservatives. We'll see how he does, but I think he made a big mistake.

    Newt never really had a chance. Actually, I'm afraid Mitt "Next guy in line" will get the nod, and that's a real shame.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I'm happy that the Newt is being exposed as the two-faced ass-hat that he is. But in reality, he doesn't have a chance no matter what he says. Though I would absolutely love to see him win the Republican nomination.
