Gingrich Brings Tough Talk to ‘Conversation’ With Bill KristolThe Honorable Newt Gingrich
In a gripping and revealing 90-minute candid conversation, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich discusses his political career, crucial lessons from the Republican revolution of 1994 and where he believes America is headed today.
Airing on Newsmax TV at 8 p.m. ET Saturday, the in-depth, thought-provoking discussion with Bill Kristol, founder of The Weekly Standard and well-known conservative political commentator, gives an exclusive insider’s look at the machinations of Washington politics, from Gingrich, one of America’s most influential conservative minds.
Gingrich, who served in the House for 20 years from 1979 to 1999 and ran for president, said he gave “one of my most candid interviews to date” during his appearance on “Conversations with Bill Kristol.”
Gingrich offers his personal insights on political luminaries with whom he served, including Gerald Ford, Jack Kemp, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, and reflections on Presidents Dwight Eisenhower and Barack Obama, saying, “I don’t think Obama has a clue about the human side of the business” of politics.
Obama, Gingrich said, “is a genuine ideologue. If he had to choose between a unified America that was center-right and a totally fractured America in which the Left had executive power, there’s zero doubt which he wants.”
The interview gives a fascinating, detailed and revealing look at how politics actually works in Washington from someone who was present in the White House and Congress in a critical era and was deeply involved in some of the most major decisions and political events of our time.
