    It's funny that I didn't much care for Newt in 1994 though some of my coworkers really liked him, I just didn't resonate with him at all.

    But a lot of what he has said over the past six months is dead on, as far as I am concerned. I don't know if he has mellowed or if I have moved further right.

    Definitely seems fair to say the republican party has strayed from it's former glory.

    I think he is primarily distancing himself from a failed party and being a politician I can only assume that he has further aspirations. No telling--maybe he's making enough bucks writing books and talking. I think he's an incredibly smart man and I pay attention to what he says at least. More than I'm willing to do with most politicians.

    :lol: love your cynicism, don't ever change dillo!

    He still sounds a little calculated when he speaks, but at least I agree with his calculations at the mo which is different than before. :)

    No, they fell off the cliff.

    You did know there was a cliff beyond the left, and beyond the right, right? :eusa_angel:

    Gingrich and Clinton worked together for the betterment of America.

    I wish they never left.
