What is the world coming to?

"It demonstrates that Republicans and Independent voters, along with Democrats, will reject extreme policies like ending Medicare that even Newt Gingrich called radical."

~DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL)

Its a sad day when a Democrat has to you such underhand tactics as to quote a republican on what they said then denied, it is most unfair. Goddammit now you have made Newt clutch his Tiffany account.

Keep doing this and it will all end in republican tears [crocodiles beware your days as a reference are so over].

Look he told you it was false even if it was recorded, broadcast and circulated in print around the country. Once the reaction was in he changed his mind, that is what it is all about:

Putting ideas out their and when you have determined that you don't like the taste of your own toes retracting it post haste and desperately deny having said it in the first place,

Look, Newt may have thought it was radical but over time [about 48 hours] and serious reappraisal of the proposals he determined that his previous statements were false. This is what politics is all about; no conviction in what you say until the polls are in.

Flip flopping shows strength in admitting you were wrong if you happen to be a Republican; if you are a Democrat that just shows how wishy washy your thinking is in the first place.

I see Newt has hired the ultimate flip-flopper to his campaign Zell Miller, now that should really clear up what his campaign is about.

Miller has the interesting distinction of having keynoted the 1992 Democratic convention, delivering a rip-roaring speech against President George H.W. Bush. Then 12 years later, he keynoted the 2004 Republican convention, delivering a rip-roaring speech for President George W. Bush,

Well he did take twelve years rather than two days.

Yay! They should be ready around 2024 then... or at 24 past eight pm whichever is sooner.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
