Here is video today of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on This Week standing up for former Gov. Sarah Palin's statement that she does not want to turn over decisions about life and death matters to "Obama's Death Panel," referring to Government Bureaucrats who could have the final say as to what treatments or procedures are "appropriate" for people to get.
George Stephanopoulos asked Gingrich what he thought about her comment as if he expected Gingrich to repudiate it. Gingrich did not. Stephanopoulose seemed disbelieving when Gingrich said that Palin's concern is well-founded since the brother of the President's Chief of Staff has advocated rationing care from those who are too old or too sick to justify spending huge amounts of money on. Stephanopoulos argued that such ideas are not in the plan, but Gingrich pointed out that the "plan" sets up all kinds of new agencies and could easily be manipulated into a kind of passive "euthanasia" when people with such views have power and influence in the Government. . . . .

Where was he when the McCain RINO crowd and the demrat Marxists were attacking her and her family? I live in NJ and I don’t recall reading, hearing or seeing (TV) anything from him. And where is he organizing conservatives into an effecting voting block? No where.
In any case, it doesn’t change the bottom line one way or the other. Newt is old and very damaged goods. Conservatives need new and younger leadership without the baggage these old time pols seem to be unable to avoid dragging along with them.
Your specific critiques of Newt are incorrect and unreasonable, in that order.
