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.
