Gingrich Favors Obama Over Paul

Gee, whatever happened to the Republican meme that we should vote for anyone over Obama? I guess closet fascist Newt Gingrich will make an exception for Ron Paul.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich suggested he might not vote for Ron Paul as the GOP presidential nominee versus President Obama in 2012.

Gingrich, in an interview Tuesday on CNN, assailed Paul as not serious and unelectable; Gingrich said the Texas congressman must answer for a series of newsletters published by his office that contained racist and anti-Semitic language.

"He's got to come up with some very straight answers to get somebody to take him seriously. Would I be willing to listen to him? Sure. I think the choice of Ron Paul or Barack Obama would be a very bad choice for America," Gingrich aid on CNN's "Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer" when asked if he would vote for Obama or Paul.

When first asked the question, Gingrich flatly responded with a "no," and later called the prospect of a general election matchup between Obama and Paul as presenting a "very hard choice."

"There will come a morning people won’t take him as a serious person," Gingrich said of Paul.
Yeah, don’t take seriously the candidate who’s been consistent with his principles. Just vote for Gingrich who received $1.6 million from Freddie Mac—the very institution that destroyed the economy, and who wants to court marshal federal judges for making “radical” rulings.
