Newt Gingrich: I’m on Team Paul-Cruz

quote:

“I consistently have been on the side of having the courage that Rand Paul and Ted Cruz have, and I think it’s sad to watch the establishment grow hysterical, but frankly they’re hysterical because they have no answers,” Gingrich said Thursday morning on “The Laura Ingraham Show.”


quote:

Gingrich said though he supported both the war in Afghanistan and the war in Iraq, he has to “say the way that they were executed failed, and maybe we should have known better, those of us that supported them. … Republicans have a real obligation to ask themselves the question: Aren’t there some pretty painful lessons to learn from the last 10 or 12 years? Don’t we have to confront the reality that this didn’t work as a strategy?”


quote:

"Trust me, Chris Christie is only the first sign, the establishment will grow more and more hysterical the more powerful Rand Paul and Ted Cruz become. They will gain strength as it’s obvious that they are among the few people willing to raise the right questions,” he said.



quote:

“I think Christie is a very good governor of New Jersey, and I think that he is a very strong personality, and apparently in New Jersey tradition, he thinks bluster and strong language without facts can carry you a long way,” Gingrich said.

Love'n it.

Newt Gingrich is on team Paul because he knows which way the political winds are blowing.

Maybe so, but I really think old Gingrich fits in the mold of Paul/Cruz/Lee. He was the leader of the GOP revolution when he led the challenged against the Democrat establishment in '94. To a certain extent I think he's channeling that experience.

Perhaps, but I've always like Gingrich. From the revolution in '94 and since. I've listened to some of his speeches. Guy knows his shite. If he hadn't had his personal affairs so screwed up after they went after Clinton so hard, he'd probably be the face of the Republican party instead of McCain.

so 94 was just a show because the political winds were blowing in that direction?

Newt has more money than he needs, and realizes he is not going to be President. He is not perfect but he was Rand Paul before Rand Paul was Rand Paul.

Newt Gingrich is the reason Clinton is considered a successful president

this. Newt as leader of the house(controller of spending) created the first and only surplus since 1970. He may be a scumbag personally but he proved fiscally what can happen when conservatism is enacted.

There's a big difference between Cruz and Paul when it comes to foreign policy. Paul voted for Chuck Hagel, while Cruz engaged in a Hagel smear campaign that would make Joe McCarthy blush. Paul is a paleocon, while Cruz is a hardcore neocon. Furthermore, Paul isn't as divisive and strident as Cruz, who loves throwing red meat to the Republican base. I could see myself voting for Paul, but not Cruz.

Lefties bogeyman. So, who made him the bogeyman? Hollywood, the same people he attacked. They never want to talk about how right the guy was.

Yea.

Paul and Cruz ain't exactly on the same team.

Don't let Gingrich and such lead you to believe such a concept.

And, Team Paul does not need Gingrich at this point.
