Newt Gingrich: Tea Party "likely to end up as the militant wing of the Republican Party"

Juggling two cell phones in a dark backstage room at the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center Wednesday evening, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said he hasn't yet decided whether he'll run for president in 2012.

But judging by the size of the crowd that showed up to see him and its reaction to his keynote address at the Manufacturers' Association of South Central Pennsylvania's 104th Annual Event, he would likely have some supporters in York County.

The 1,000 people who turned out for the engagement represented the largest crowd the event has ever draw

...

While attendees supported many of Gingrich's assertions, his characterization of the Tea Party as "militant" was lost on Livermore and others.

Reading a selection of questions to the former Speaker, Smeltzer asked Gingrich about the future of the conservative group.

Gingrich said the movement is a "natural expression of frustration with Republicans and anger at Democrats," which is "more likely to end up as the militant wing of the Republican Party" than as an independent or third party.

...

The word "militant" seems to support recent remarks made by former President Bill Clinton, which some conservatives have interpreted as a comparison of the Tea Party movement and anti-government rhetoric that led up to the bombing of federal building in Oklahoma City 15 years ago, she said.

Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.

Maybe. But, ####### and Newt didn't really ever get along, since Newt jumped the queue to take the speakers job away from him, and ####### Armey is the driving force behind the T.E.A. Party movement. No love lost there.

It didn't take long for the lefties to get the story out.

I'd believe it.
