Yet with Progressive role models like FDR, Wilson and Stern; the only Speaker ever to be sanction by the House; recent questionable connections to lobbying for Freddie and Fannie… yesterday in the South Carolina primary, supposedly a conservative state, Washington insider Newt Gingrich pulled off a major victory over Mitt Romney #2, Rick Santorum #3 and Ron Paul #4… and that after his second wife resurrected her story of Newt’s philandering with a claim of a supposed request for an open marriage by her former husband.
AP – Is New t really the most electable, best representative of conservative values, or less moderate than Mitt Romney ?

Beck Show on Gingrich
It’s not as if Newt couldn’t have known his past comments were going to eventually be called into question. He’s capably navigated his way through his big government tendencies so far and miraculously still has solid support in the Tea Party. Will the latest damaging clip have any impact? Gingrich is caught praising his favorite president of the 20th century: FDR. Yup, he picked the mother of all progressives ahead of Ronald Reagan.
Watch this: video montage
Cue sound of heads exploding across the country…NOW!
Seriously?! This is unbelievable.
“This goes back to what Newt Gingrich said on this program. You got to get things done. That’s akin to saying we all love the Constitution but there are things we got to do,” Glenn warned.
“FDR did get things done, and then they were ruled unconstitutional,” Stu joked.
But that’s not the worst thing – on the clip at the top of the page Glenn reads a story where Gingrich praised SEIU’s Andy Stern in one of his books.
In his book “Real Chance: From the World That Fails to the World That Works,” Gingrich praises the SEIU head, who remains a close adviser of the President Obama. Pitching the need for conservatives to respect organized labor, while simultaneously pushing back against some of
Labor’s more cherished legislative goals, he wrote the following:
” Conservatives cannot cheer unions overseas and then be blindly anti-union here at home. There are legitimate historic reasons for workers to organize together, and there is a strong need for a healthy, competitive, union, movement that helps improve the lives of its members and the competitiveness of our country.
Andy Stern, the head of the Service Employees International Union, is the union leader who probably best understands the challenge of the
world market and the need to make American union members productive in the face of world competition. Sadly, he is a distinct minority among
union leaders. “
“So he loves Andy Stern,” Glenn said. “If he can’t figure it of Stern is a Socialist communist dirt bag then he shouldn’t be the leader of the free world.”
And he admits to be a fan of Woodrow Wilson!
Watch Newt claim to be a “realpolitik Wilsonian” Here:
Nobody that loves, emulates, or admires FDR, Woodrow Wilson and Andy Stern is a true conservative… for those 2-men are all Progressives… Progressive heroes. (These men are the heroes and friends of Obama and his czars). And someone with 3-wives, two divorces, a long history of affairs and a tendency for grandiosity (Newt has also compared himself or Pericles, Abraham Lincoln, Moses, and a Viking) even if he has changed, beats Rick Santorum or Mitt Romney as social conservatives. Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum have been model husbands and fathers.
One must ask… what happened to value voters and the tea party? Is it all really only talk?
