Hannity had a segment on his show tonight with Newt Gingrich whereby they discussed the NAACP allegations that the Tea Party is racist and also the newly discovered Breibart video of admitted racist Shirley Sherrod (formerly) of the USDA.
Newt's suggestion for moving past all the talk of racism was for the local Tea Party members to reach out to local chapters of the NAACP in order to discuss things that matter to both groups such as jobs and the economy. This, he said, would give the black community a chance to see for themselves that they really have much more in common with the Tea Party than they realize.
Even when Sean made the astute argument that the NAACP claims were based on falsehoods, such as the "N-word" incident that never happened on Capitol Hill, and the fact there is simply is no evidence of racism in the Tea Party, Newt still insisted that, at the local level, it would be helpful for the Tea Party to reach out to the NAACP.
This is the flaw of Newt Gingrinch.
He would reach out to members of Congress who vehemently oppose our principles, who will lie, cheat, steal, and say anything to get their way.
Newt does not understand that the Progressives have no desire, nor will they ever, compromise in their thirst for power, their demand for a European Social Democracy, or their disgust for our Constitution.
Is there any instance, since taking the House in 2006 and the White House in 2008, when the Democrats/Progressives have EVER reached out to the Republican Party for an honest discussion or debate?
The answer is No. NEVER.
Whomever our next President is should consider returning the favor. But over and over again, Newt has proven that he would still reach across the aisle. And that is why I would NEVER vote for Newt Gingrich for President.
