Newt Gingrich clings to yesterday's republican party
I've always been a big fan of Gingrich and many of his ideas on conservatism are sound but, he relegates the tea-party conservatives to the fringe of the GOP at the peril of his own relevancy......
Gingrich said the movement is a "natural expression of frustration with Republicans and anger at Democrats," which is "more likely to end up as the militant wing of the Republican Party".
Hey Newt, when did fiscal responsibility, low taxes, and small, unobtrusive government become militant? I thought these were the tenets the GOP has stood for all this time. If those beliefs are considered militant to beltway republicans like you, then I haven't left the republican party, it has left me.
