Newt said the CBO “actually constrains what people are allowed to think.” Which explains why he wants to destroy it — why should people’s thoughts be constrained by reality?

He also called for the dismantling of People Magazine for not naming him “sexiest man alive”.

reactionary? Takes one to know one champ.

Reminds me of Newt’s statement that he was worried that the US would become a secular atheist country dominated by radical islamists. Whaa?

Newt’s recent rise in the polls has reinforced his delusional ego into thinking he can say whatever he wants and reality will conform to it.

No, Newt, it doesn’t work that way.

The big question is, “Does Newt understand the English language?” Because to me ‘reactionary’ and ‘socialist’ form an oxymoron.

But let’s face it. Both words scare the living shit out of the ‘base’ and that’s what Newt wants to do. Frighten them into voting for him.

He and the rest of the GOP candidates really don’t think much of the American people, do they?

re: #5 Romantic Heretic

They have gotten away with lying for so long they really just use dog whistles and jingoism now. Sleaze to the max. You could probably put together a 4 hour mini series on Newt Gingrich, disgraced former Speaker of the House, contradicting himself non stop. Empty suit and a big mouth a leader do not make.

Just his latest statement on ” child labor laws are stupid” makes him one vile creep. If him and his ilk ever get the Social Security money privatized it will make Enron look like a kindergarten watercolor.

Just like the Office of Technology Assessment had to go in 1995, it produced too many sciencey things that conflicted with the way things ought to be.
