Gingrich was the Speaker of the House before he flamed out- you can’t get more inside than that. In the 2000s, he didn’t associate with a singles conservative - he worked with Al Sharpton, Barney Frank, and Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi, who he sponsored 418 bills with, including a 1989 environmental bill to destroy the economy. And he still believes in Global Warming, and thinks he will save it. There is no one more big government than Gingrich, including Bush & Romney.
