I -- have a segment -- -- Republican presidential sweepstakes is featured a number of candidates surging and then falling back.
But a good week for Newt Gingrich as he is competing now with the leader Mitt Romney as Herman Cain has declined in many polls -- as -- Washington Fox News now -- trop crowd.
So Charles -- of the bad can -- Gingrich security nomination in your opinion.
We'll consider that a couple of months ago I said we have the worst -- since the Hindenburg.
You would think they're gonna do a little bit of humility now but as you know yourself bill.
He really doesn't come easy so I will -- -- to my comment April 22 where I was predicting the future of their race -- the beginning.
Where I had Gingrich at twelve to one I would say that right now.
Considering how so many of the other candidates have either not themselves out of the race so unforced errors or not each other out of the race like.
-- they had Bachmann.
That I say is dodge or maybe 71 -- channel and I don't think there there of that judge better.
Let's let's then get into why you believe that because obviously.
The speaker has taken support from Herman Cain you can you can always see where this support goes Rick Perry gets into the race he takes directly from Michelle Bachmann.
All right Herman Cain gets hammered.
For seven days straight in the media.
Some of that support slips over two mr.
Gingrich so Gingrich now competing -- Mitt Romney.
In most of the polls why do you see him as a longshot that.
Because for every other candidate -- yourself.
As soon as they rose became a target.
Until now Gingrich -- -- a play or at least in the polls so that people didn't know Africa there was a scrutiny in the press.
There -- attacks from the -- candidates.
And he's got to baggage shall not talking about -- the personal stuff I find that.
Distasteful I don't believe in preaching.
To anybody -- talking about the ideological.
-- season and look he's had a long career he's had a lot of ideas.
And some of them around -- radical for example.
In the ninety's he supported with The Heritage Foundation.
An individual mandate for health care about of course he changed his mind it's got expirations but that's a fact.
The other thing I think is rather -- -- and and he cut with Nancy Pelosi of all people.
A few years ago in which they're sitting on the couch.
And they are talking about global warming being -- real threatening phenomenon.
And how governments have to do something about it believes in global warming I don't know I'm not so much anymore -- he doesn't want to intrude on the economy down on on we asked him about this.
In our -- -- push of a special report.
And his answer was I don't know that was I can't believe I did that.
In other words was -- saying now is unlike -- then when he thought global warming was real.
He now is an agnostic and he would not obviously have a government spend trillions on it as he appeared to be advocating.
In the -- -- Now there's no doubt that that the speaker is a brilliant and you would admit that politically brilliant guy thinker.
Problem solver comes up with.
You know understands the issues and comes up -- what he thinks is the best solution.
You would argue with any of that -- -- I would say that after of their performance of some of the candidates.
Who have revealed extraordinary.
And -- there's that lack of knowledge I think it's refreshing.
That -- -- around the candidate should be somewhat yeah I think -- I think I have to say that Gingrich of all of them is probably the most intelligent political speaking.
Has the most experience at the federal level and really really knows okay and ending which is trading on that now I heard him on FOX & Friends this morning.
They basically said look.
I know how to solve these problems and I have a lot more to say that any of the of the -- as I think that's quite a parent I believe that people will forget about.
A polarizing I am and -- personal stuff and they're gonna go for problem solved that's what he's great hope.
It can it be realize.
Well he's got a problem that he is he's a Prodi and think and he's come up with a file -- and ideas.
And that proudly -- his best.
Excuse for a lot of these -- -- is that.
If you are gonna right over twenty books and cast of thousands of votes in congress you are going to contradict yourself at times and commit heresy against orthodox he's at times.
And that I think is his best way out but the fact is that he comes up with eight ideas on every issue and I always thought.
Through shows a very creative political divide to resume the use of ideas but a lot of their -- lava and a lot of ever toxic.
So I think he's gonna have problems because -- -- the scares the out of him Pelosi and Iowa he's gonna have a hard time.
Talking here's what way out of it now he can say an -- the career right rethought stuff.
And my problem is excessive creative thinking and not pandering which I think is his response if Romney -- so I think it'll be interesting.
Contest if the argument it is about who's changed but whose stuff with principal hi Charles thanks very much we appreciate -- there is.
