Finally.. A well known conservative speaks the truth

Saturday, August 04, 2007

Newt Gingrich a very well known conservative Republican made a speach recently to the group "Young Republicans" and he spared no punches to the current administration handling of the Iraq war.

"We have to take this seriously," said Gingrich. "We used to be a serious country. When we got attacked at Pearl Harbor, we took on Imperial Japan, Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany," he said, referring to World War II. "We beat all three in less than four years. We're about to enter the seventh year of this phony war against ... [terrorist groups], and we're losing."

"None of you should beleive that we are winning this war. There is no evidence that we are winning this war" the ex-Georgian told a group of about 300 students attending a conference for collegiate conservatives.

"Republican political doctrine has been a failure," Gingrich said. "Look at New Orleans. How can you say that was a success? Look at Baghdad ... We've been in charge for six years and I don't think you can look around and say that was a great success.
