Thomas Sowell is a Gingrich backer, a supporter, that quote you posted is from an article supporting Gingrich, you lie by trying to turn it into an attack on him.
Fox Business: Sowell: Gingrich Only One Who Can Debate Obama, Mar 9, 2012
Economist Thomas Sowell argues that Newt Gingrich is the best choice for Republicans.
According to Fox News, Jim Robinson of Freerepublic made an OFFICIAL ENDORSEMENT of Speaker Newt Gingrich.
you tried to imply that the endorsement has been retracted, just as you tried to give the impression that Economist Sowell, is NOT for Gingrich.
Im officially endorsing Newt Gingrich for President today
Jan 19, 2012 | Jim Robinson, Free Republic
Im officially endorsing Newt Gingrich for president today. Was going to wait until after Florida, but see no reason to delay. We need Newt to win in South Carolina and Florida to stop any possible momentum building up for the establishment big government, statist, abortionist RINO!!
RomneyCare = ObamaCare = government tyranny!! Taxpayer funded abortion is as evil as evil can be!!
Newt is a pro-life Reagan Revolution conservative who led the Republican Revolution of the 90s, taking the majority away from the democrats who had held it for 40 years. And as Speaker, cut the taxes, cut the government, cut the spending, cut the deficit, cut regulations, cut unemployment, brought the federal budget under control for four years running. And unlike Romney, actually blocked a socialist healthcare system from becoming law. And created a pro-growth, pro-free market, pro-jobs environment and extended the Reagan economy throughout the 90s!! Newt is the ideal candidate to lead the Tea Party Revolution!!
You really have a reading comprehension problem. The Sowell article discusses the strengths and weakness of EACH candidate. Go take another read of the article. Of course, we ALL know that Gingrich is a good debater but that does NOT mean he is electable.
