Gingrich casts Tea Party as Militant Wing of GOP

I think Newt was trying to say the Tea Party People are not going to start their own party but be a voice of the Republican Party. He called it the militant right wing of the party, a poor choice of words. I believe you have to choose a team and then try to get in the game. I am doing just such a thing. I do not trust Newt, though and have sent letters out expressing my concern with him. The letter reads:
No Newt for President
Sean Hannity says the country needs to elect true Ronald Reagan conservatives to office. Then he talks about Newt Gingrich running for President. I do not understand the contradiction, because Newt is not a true Reagan conservative.
Newt says the United States is a center right country and the tea party movement shows the American people are not happy with Washington. Newt, tell us something we don’t already know. The American people are waking up to the radical agenda of the Obama administration and the Democrats/Statists. Common Sense Conservatism is rising again and the Statists day is coming in November.
Bob Dole/Dull said it was his turn to run for President and we got 4 more years of the rapist Bill Clinton. Then it was John McCain’s “turn” and we ended up with Barack Hussein Obama.
The following observations and questions are the reason I do not believe Newt Gingrich is a real common sense Reagan conservative Republican espoused by Hannity.
Gary Gill was running against Missouri’s 3rd District Democrat Representative Dick Gephardt and he was leading in the polls until Newt praised Gephardt. Gill ended up losing the election.
Newt made the Contract with America that helped the Republicans win the US House in 1994.
What did the Republicans do after they won the US House in 1994? What was enacted? They did not follow through on the contract.
In 2005 he teamed up with Hillary Clinton on National Healthcare and claimed she would be a formidable candidate for President. He did a Climate Change commercial with Pelosi and teamed up with Sharpton on education.
Newt backed Dede Scozzafava, another RINO, in the New York Congressional race.

Newt was on Greta and commented to her, “You strengthen yourself by attracting more people than by driving them away,” implying that you must compromise your conservative principles in order to expand the party. I believe you stand on conservative principles & let the people come to you.
Above all, he stated the Era of Reagan Conservatism is over.

He is positioning himself to run for President as a middle of the roader, and is being too cute and disingenuous when he was asked about recent trips to Iowa and New Hampshire and gives an evasive answer. Newt is out for Newt. He is not a true conservative and this country does not need him as President. Before Hannity lends too much support to Newt, he should have him explain his reasoning for his actions.
