To those who compare the two: The McCain Gingrich comparisons are ludicrous. McCain was never hated on a visceral and wide basis like Newt was in 94 by liberals and like he is now by conservatives in 2011. McCain never stumbled five times in 96 hours like McCain did now. Yeah, FREEPERS hated McCain the same way as they hate Newt, but NEVER EVER EVER did the public at large.
Using tidbits of history out of context is not instructive at all.
Also McCain is strongly pro-second amendment ... Newt allowed and supported passage of the draconian 1996 Lautenberg anti-gun amendment thus enabling it to become law . Newt is not to be trusted at all .
