Newt Gingrich is the unofficial top contender for the 2012 Republican presidential candidate. He hasn't announced his decision to run yet, but he's making all the right moves toward that announcement.

Last night at a GOP conference, the former Speaker of the House (the position Nancy Pelosi now holds) slammed U.S. president Barack Obama's policies, calling him the "most radical president in American history" who oversees a "secular, socialist machine."

"The most radical president in American history has now thrown down the gauntlet to the American people: 'I run a machine. I own Washington and there's nothing you can do about it,'" Gingrich said. He urged his fellow Republicans to stop what he called Obama's "secular, socialist machine."

He said Obama's policies — particularly health care and economic stimulus legislation — have put the United States on the road to socialism. The former speaker did not specifically explain why he thought Obama is a secularist, though he did say the GOP wasn't afraid of recognizing faith's role in American society.

"The point is there are many things we can say yes to," Gingrich said.

Will he say yes to a presidential campaign?

"That will be up to God," he said, "and the American people." Read More...

    Radical people make chit happen. Love it. He really complimented the Prez.

    When Newt was SOTH he didn't do chit but spend the taxpayers money on an exhaustive Repub lynching of Bill Clinton's sex life. Then Ken Starr was ousted and so was he. So exactly what his point again and what were his radical achievements for the Republican party??
    Yeah, I'mma ride with Obama.

    "...particularly health care and economic stimulus legislation"

    Huh! How soon these *ssholes forget. Bush started the stimulus legislation. It was in the works before Obama took office, so freshen up your memory Newt and crawl back into obsurity like the slimy lizard you're named after.

    Of course, him and SR will be having dinner later this week so she can continue to grace her blog with her astute political commentary!

    What is so wrong with socialism? Republicans make socialism sound like it doesn't benefit the people; it does. Capitalism benefits them because they are rich. If we were smart we would support any socialist movement; because anything is better than what we have now......
