    Bill Clinton Praises Newt Gingrich - Ken Walsh's Washington (usnews.com)

    We've had a lot of talk coming out of many in the RNC that Newt Gingrich is not capable of attracting the independent vote. Bill Clinton--as President --with Newt Gingrich as speaker--in one of our best economies ever--were actually able to get things DONE--even though they had different political positions. Listening to Gingrich tonight--it's clear that even though they came from different sides of the isle they did and continue to respect each other.

    Gingrich was asked what the difference between Bill Clinton and Barack Obama is. Newt answered that Bill Clinton was a governor in a conservative state and was very experienced with working with conservatives--and able to see both sides before making a decision. Gingrich stated that Clinton was often chastised by the democrats in congress for meeting in the middle with republicans for solutions and was willing to listen and consider new ideas. Gingrich even mentioned one instance that if not for Bill Clinton one of his pieces of legislation would not have passed.

    Whereas-Gingrich states-Barack Obama had no experience. He was a state senator in Illinois--and spent those 2 years there running for the U.S. senate--when he won the US senate seat he spent those two years running for President. During all this time he gained no experience in real legislation--and working with people of different political ideology. He had no accomplishments--except winning one after another election. He then added it's one thing to be radical--it's one thing to be incompetent--but when you have both--that's just to hard to take--while referring to Barack Obama.

    Rasmussen poll--shows Newt Gingrich beating Barack Obama.

    NOTE: This poll doesn't reflect those that had NO OPINION, which was 8% regarding Obama.

    I liked Jimmy Carter, but there is no comparison between his re-election and Obama's. Apples and oranges...
