Newt Gingrich, increasingly desperate for relevancy, has been pretty shrill in his denunciations of the Obama Administration. As Newt is running for the Republican nomination that is to be expected. But even by the staggering standards of hypocrisy set by Newt himself his latest pronouncements are so imbecilic as to make his run for the White House a circus side show. Today’s column by conservative Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby exposes the Gingrich position as it “evolved” on the Libyan intervention. Whatever position will be held by President Obama will be criticized, regardless of whether Gingrich had previously supported such a position. His duplicity, and his attempt to explain his duplicity, astounded even Chris Wallace at Fox. Democrats everywhere should be rooting for Speaker Gingrich to get the Republican nomination, as he has ceased being even a remotely serious person.
That lack of seriousness is further shown by the comments made in his book, in which he claims that Obama and the Democrats represent a threat to America on par with the Stalin and Hitler regimes.
Wallace: You also write this on the screen: “The secular socialist machine represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did.” Mr. Speaker, respectfully, isn’t that wildly over the top?
Gingrich: No, not if by America you mean….Just listen to President Obama’s language. He gets to decide who earns how much. He gets to decide when it’s too much.
Wallace: We’re not talking about any company. We’re talking about companies that the government has put billions of dollars in…
Gingrich: No, no..he has said publicly and generically. Some Americans earn too much. So now he’s going to decide that?
Wallace:No, he’s not. He has said that some Americans earn too much.
Imbecility as a description simply does not do justice to these types of utterances. Newt wants to be relevant, and so desperately wants to appeal to the baser elements of his party, that he is willing to do and say just about anything. He is the dream candidate (for Democrats). Keep on talking Newt. The hole just keeps getting bigger.
