As recently as January of this year, Newt said:
Furthermore, in 2008: Gingrich says Palin will not be the future GOP leader.
So paraphrasing your comment, all this nonsense about how Newt has ALWAYS admired Palin is just a desperate plea by those who want to believe him.
That’s just disingenuous. In both the links you put there, Newt praises Palin. He simply analyzed her honestly and said she not become the #1 leader of the GOP. He was right, she didn’t. Newt gave a fair and accurate analysis as he always tries to.
