Gingrich lashes out at a small government Ron Paul
Newt Gingrich has finally found a politician he considers even worse than the president he calls socialist, and radical. That would be his fellow Republican Ron Paul.
"I think Barack Obama is very destructive to the future of the United States. I think Ron Paul's views are totally outside the mainstream of virtually every decent American," Gingrich said in a CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer.
I just broke out laughing at this. Election politics as usual.
BOTTOM LINE - Let's cut to the chase. Newt had his chance as Speaker of the House. Under Newt's leadership not one single meaningful Big Government spending program was ever abolished, and not one government worker was fired.
That is the bottom line of GOP control of Congress. Nothing really changed. The Republicans were proud to have balanced the budget of the Big Brother, re-distributive, Marxist welfare state. They were the "good government" managers of Socialism.
Newt attacks Ron Paul for being out of the mainstream. That is true. Paul wants to abolish the Big Government programs that Newt and the GOP protect and fund.
