I think you’re reaching if you think Newt would push for cap n trade if elected. The GOP is overwhelmingly against that, and Newt isn’t stupid. I think appearing with Pelosi was a cynical ploy to boost his approval ratings. I don’t really think he’s a supporter of cap n tax.
“And which Newt will we get the Contract with America Newt or the Global Warming Kumbaya one?”
That is why I wouldn’t want Gingrich at the top of the ticket. I don’t trust that he is back to his conservative roots.
In one of he debates, when Newt was asked about Education, his reply was about giving K-12 schools pell grants. PELL GRANTS? How can anyone thing that throwing more money at schools is going to fix anything? It costs me less than $1000 per kid to homeschool my kids, but I pay my county $10k per kids for them to teach kids. And you know the vast majority of that money isn’t going to the teachers. The problem with schools IS the government. We have to get government out of the way and put control of education back into the hands of the parents and teachers.
But I digress... point is, I think Newt still has some shades of big spender in him...
