    What part of this program does Gingrich NOT understand? Is this how he hopes to get more people into the GOP's "big tent"?

    Who cares about the GOP's "Big tent"?

    We need to get out of this politics mentality and start looking at real solutions to problems.

    I care. I quit the GOP after what the last administration and it's GOP led Congress did. I HOPED that having a Democrat take the White House would straighten them out. Gingrich is currently polling as the most likely GOP candidate for 2012 and what he says shows me he is clearly STILL out of touch with the middle class and that pisses me off.

    Stink Progress quoting Olberdouche....Tells us all we need to know.

    BTW...Gingrich is still a pin-headed neocon dink, who will sink the party once and for all if they're stupid enough to nominate him in 2012.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, Gingrich is an a-hole.

    You have zero maneuvering room to go around calling anyone juvenile, Skeezix.

    Now Oddity, the fact you are on this board demonstrates that you are somewhat juvenile, same as the rest of us.

    dude, its not that the unemployed are lazy (although some of them love the taxpayer money), its that a lot of them are unemployable, meaning, they aren't qualified to do ANYTHING that would benefit society.
