Skip to comments.Gingrich: My Ad on Global Warming with Pelosi was a "Debate," I will "Not Apologize"

Newt Gingrich, carrying heavy baggage from multiple marriages and RINO stances, is now trying to rewrite history.
Lambasted over an ad against "climate change," in which he sat on a couch with Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, Gingrich is trying to clarify the meaning of the ad. Gingrich-spokesman Rick Tyler sent an email out to that effect (emphasis mine):
"Newt does not apologize for trying to persuade his ideological opponents that his conservative solutions are the best solutions. His attempt to work with Speaker Pelosi is another testament to Gingrich's willingness to debate his conservative solutions with liberals, in this case Pelosi. As it turned out, Pelosi ... and Gingrich still disagree about how to best protect the environment. But Gingrich will never shy away from debating those on the left on issues like the environment, education and healthcare that they think they own."
You know, I could have sworn that the ad that Gingrich appeared in stated that he agreed with Pelosi. Probably because that's exactly what the ad said...
Here is a transcript from the commercial:
Pelosi- Hi! I'm Nancy Pelosi, life-long Democrat and Speaker of the House.
Gingrich- And I'm Newt Gingrich, life-long Republican and I used to be Speaker of the House.
Pelosi- We don't always see eye to eye, do we Newt?
Gingrich- No, but we do agree: our country must take action to address climate change.

Maybe he can follow this up by lecturing us why Skuzzafallo was the best choice over Hoffman. Later Newt, maybe Palin will pick you.
Pray for America
Does anyone outside the liberal press and fawning Fox think this guy is worth two shits?
And if so - give one good reason why?
He is a clown.
And now - he is a lieing clown.
These politicians say they’re conservative, but then they betray those core principles.
Romney has done it on several issues, he didn’t apologize, Bush did it every time he clucked about being a “compassionate conservative”.
These clowns crossed a line they shouldn’t have and they’re proud about their betrayal of conservatives.
Newt was great in the 90s and I'll never forget the leadership exhibited to take the house after nearly 50 years of Democrat rule.
But, today, to get me to vote for Newt would require Jim Robinson to drive to my house and personally ask me to vote for Mr Gingrich. Actually, he'd have to beg me.
So you see Newt, nothing's short of impossible. Global warming. Phtaaa!
He is going to have to call in a shoring company, because the hole he is digging is getting deeper and deeper!
He thinks we’re idiots.
The more I hear Newt dodge and weave, the more I’m convinced this man needs to just go away.
I sincerely wonder if Newt understands loyalty. He must suffer from abandonment issues associated with his youth.
Newt just tell the truth. You were on drugs and it seemed like a good idea at the time. Now you realize is was a chitty idea and global warming is a hoax.
Newt, you’re an intereting character, but you cannot be our President. Sorry.
"Who you gonna believe, me oryour lying eyes?"
Doesn't look like a debate to me...
(Just D@mn, that Pelosi dame must've really been smokin' HAWT on that couch they shared.)
