Newt Gingrich On FDR

By | December 13, 2011

From Breitbart TV, a series of quotes from Newt about his admiration of FDR:

Newt believes Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the greatest President of the 20th century. I need not chronicle FDR’s socialism, as I’m sure the reader is well aware of it.

Glenn Beck has recently created some controversy by comparing Newt to Barack Obama. I think Beck is over-the-top (as usual) with his “color” comment, but the comparison can’t help but be made.

Katherine Revello makes a good case for making the hair-splitting (and ironic) choice for Romney over Gingrich. This is a sentiment I’ve seen echoed in many other venues by many solid conservatives.

We’ve already seen Newt Gingrich’s long history of supporting government medicine and his poor leadership skills. We know that self-destruction in an inevitability for him. We’ve seen the immensity of his ego, with his self-comparisons to Theodore Roosevelt, Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, and others.

How much more evidence is needed to convince Republican voters that he isn’t fit to be President?

  1. Weak Sauce

    Your little column is weak sauce in condemning Newt as a socialist. Newt’s actions as Speaker of the House were certainly conservative in balancing the budget and achieving tax cuts and welfare reform.

    I just heard a radio interview with Romney when he was governor of Mass calling himself a Progressive. YOu really should be worried about that. Romney’s health care plan is illustrative of his socialist progressive leanings.

    Wake up. America is awake and they’ve also stopped listening to moonbat Beck too.
