It might not be news to you that Newt Gingrich is a bald faced liar, but here's the lie:
"Democratic leaders today have been sending clear signals that they are willing to use the lame duck session of Congress to pass the most unpopular and destructive parts of their agenda."
Right. I keep telling folks that if one party has far less respect for the will of the people than the other, it's still Republicans. Gingrich is one of their exemplars and here is the proof:
The number of Americans who support DADT Repeal? 78%
The number of Americans who support passage of the New Start treaty? 73%
Lastly, the number of Americans who support the 9/11 First Responders Bill? Figures unavailable (But, if you think it's a minority, we think you need to view this post)
