Gingrich Takes Up the Neo-Cons’ ‘National Greatness’ Mantra

Newt Gingrich, after winning the evangelical “open marriage” vote in South Carolina, now is about to embark on some “major speeches” that will be “visionary.” Yes, like the Neo-Cons, who preach Pyramid building as “national greatness,” Gingrich is going to try to bring back NASA and the space program.

Riding the momentum of his South Carolina win on Saturday, Newt Gingrich said Sunday he planned a week of big speeches offering “big solutions for a big country.”

“I’ll be at the space coast in Florida this week giving a speech — a visionary speech — on the United States going back into space in the John F. Kennedy tradition,” the former House Speaker said on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal.”

However, as they say on late-night TV, “Wait! There’s more!”He said the days leading to Florida’s Jan. 31 primary would include other speeches on health care, housing, the economy, Cuba, and Latin America.

“I hope really once a day to do something very positive and clear about positive ways of moving forward as a country to get back on the right track,” Gingrich said.

Yes, this is Newtie at his best, the Great Visionary, The Man With All The Answers. No doubt, he has a great vision for the rest of us, but somehow I doubt that he plans to take part in what he proposes to impose on everyone else.
