Newt Gingritch is hoping to carry on the Newt Gingrich Advocates Changing Free Speech Laws
Newt Gingrich, former Republican House Speaker, said ironically enough, at a free speech advocacy rally that a "different set of rules" should be created to reduce a terrorist's right to free speech.
In keeping with the Republicans' continuing power grab and trampling all over the US Constitution, Newt says free speech laws need to be changed "before we lose a city," which he said "could happen in the next decade."
Newt's speech created some concern at the rally. The event was intended to honor those who fought in favor of free speech. shortnews.com
Evil Empire Bush legacy Gingrich '08: The stealth candidate
The controversial former House Speaker seems to throw his hat in the ring as a GOP presidential candidate
, and promises that health care reform will be the big issue. An exclusive Fortune interview.
WASHINGTON - Even a crisp Guinness stout can't chill the note of exasperation coming out of Newt Gingrich's mouth. "You still don't get it, do you?" he asks.
The subject is the 2008 presidential race and whether the former speaker of the House will run. The news is that Gingrich is running, but not on any official campaign trail.
The radical realist who defied conventional wisdom 12 years ago by stealing the House out from under the noses of entrenched Democrats now plans a surprise attack for the presidency. "I'm going to tell you something, and whether or not it's plausible given the world you come out of is your problem," he tells Fortune. "I am not 'running' for president. I am seeking to create a movement to win the future by offering a series of solutions so compelling that if the American people say I have to be president, it will happen."
So he's running, only without yet formally saying so. money.com
