Gingrich shoots and scores! He compares Obama White House's Emmanuel to Nixon's Haldelman
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich scored the biggest points on Sunday morning political TV by comparing the Obama White House strategy of discrediting critics to that employed of Bob Haldeman during the Nixon administration.
Gingrich rightly cited Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel as the Obama administration's Haldeman. And we've seen the cesspool from which Emmanuel emerged, Chicago politics, where the governor was forced from office and the current U.S. senator refuses to resign despite lying to a legislative panel.
Obama has been trying to tie the GOP to being around the nose by Rush Limbaugh. Gingrich refuted that. And he went a better step further by saying no one in their right mind wants Obama to fail as president. The American people would suffer, he said.
But he rightly added that Obama's policies deepening the recession should fail. Watch for Gingrich's star to rise.
