Newt Gingrich says war on terror ‘phony’; says energy independence is key (poll inside)

(Gingrich fans? – promoted by Patrick)

I know there is a large Newt Fan Club contingent here at RMG.  I also know that RMG loves to tow the Bush line and repeat the same tired talking points on the War of Terror.

I wonder, then, how you RMGers react to Newt Gingrich’s recent comments echoing what many on the left have been saying for a long time?

From a Friday article in the Atlanta Constitution Journal:

“We’ve been engaged in a phony war,” said Gingrich. “The only people who have been taking this seriously are the combat military.”

“None of you should believe we are winning this war. There is no evidence that we are winning this war,” ….”We were in charge for six years,” he said, referring to the period between 2001 and early 2007, when the GOP controlled the White House and both houses of Congress. “I don’t think you can look and say that was a great success….”

I believe we need to find leaders who are prepared to tell the truth… about the failures of the performance of Republicans … failed bureaucracies … about how dangerous the world is,” he said when asked what kind of Republican he would back for president.

Refreshing, no?
