No, Gingrich actually says what he means and is perfectly intelligible.

Romney is either saying what he means and nobody wants to believe it, or he is so poorly spoken that he never manages to say what he means and thus needs “interpretation.” This has been a constant since the beginning.

I hate to dredge this garbage up, but you really leave me no choice with your embarrassingly fangirly post. These are some of the first examples (out of many I'm sure I could come up with) that came to mind. Again, posted solely for the purpose of bringing some perspective, if not sobriety, to this discussion:

What did Gingrich mean when he said he would repeal Obamacare on Day One and then he said he would reinstate about 10% of Obamacare immediately thereafter?

What did Gingrich mean when he said, referring to Nancy Pelosi, "we do agree that our country must take action to address climate change"? And what did he mean when he said, referring to that statement, "that's the single dumbest thing I've ever done"?

What did he mean when he said "I've never favored cap and trade"? And what did he mean when he said "I think if you have mandatory carbon caps combined with a trading system, much like we did with sulfur, and if you have a tax-incentive program for investing in the solutions, that there's a package there that's very, very good. And frankly, it's something I would strongly support"?

What did Gingrich mean when he called Paul Ryan's plan "right-wing social engineering"?

What did he mean when he said, "The special election for the 23rd Congressional District is an important test leading up to the mid-term 2010 elections. Our best chance to put responsible and principled leaders in Washington starts here, with Dede Scozzafava"?

And when he later said, “At the time, as a party builder and someone who has always been trying to help build the party, it struck me that she was the local nominee. She turned out to be a huge disappointment. And she turned out not to be frankly a loyal Republican.”

Your post is an example of the type of dreaming that would SINK a Gingrich presidency. Why? Because the reality of this man is very different from the platitude "Gingrich actually says what he means and is perfectly intelligible." Those who fall for that are likely to become highly disenchanted with a President Gingrich and be the FIRST to abandon him and his administration to the wolves.

Anyone who thinks ANY candidate, much less Newton Leroy Gingrich, won't need supporters to "explain" and defend him from stupid stuff that comes out of his mouth is literally drinking the Kool-aid. Sorry.
