I find it impossible to disagree with Newt Gingrich.
COLUMBIA, S.C. – Ex-U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Wednesday that the thought of California Rep. Nancy Pelosi becoming the next leader of the House and being third in line to the presidency is frightening.
“The prospect of her bringing San Francisco values and a whole attitude on foreign policy that is, I think, an attitude of weakness and appeasement and surrender, I think, would be a disaster for the country,” the outspoken Republican said.
So, the whole “San Francisco values” thing is definitely shorthand easily understood by folks on the right, but that’s his target audience. We out here in conservative-land know very well what he means by that.
What’s more important is his rather plain language about how terribly unserious and dangerous Pelosi’s stance is for all of us.
That said, I think Gingrich would make an excellent Vice President, not only because he has no problem confronting his opponents but also because he is one of the few truly brilliant minds in national politics.
