Newt Gingrich can be legitimately funny. He is here.
“You have never, ever in your career seen a serious adult who’s wealthy, independent, has been a presidential nominee, suck up at the rate that Mitt Romney is sucking up,” Gingrich continued. “And I am confident that he thinks now that Donald Trump is one of his closest friends, that they have so many things in common, that they’re both such wise, brilliant people.”
Gingich is pulling for Giuliani for State who isn’t really much of an improvement on Romney. Thankfully however uber neocon John Bolton seems to be out of the mix.
It should be noted that Romney’s suck up skills have been honed over the years in high finance and in politics. He is the consummate insider “swamp thing.” Romney for instance persuaded Monsanto to go into the GMO business and then helped the company get connected in crony Washington.
He was key in helping the company become the monster it is today, perhaps THE most crony company in the world. (Though this is a very arguable point. Goldman Sachs gives Monsanto a pretty good run.)
This connection is of particular concern given what Wikileaks exposed about Washington’s affinity for GMOs. Serious pressure was applied via the State Department in Europe after the EU banned a certain type of Monsanto GM corn in 2007. It is likely that Washington would only be inclined more in the pro-GMO direction with Romney as Secretary of State.
