Gingrich: Republicans ‘don’t rely enough on actually knowing things’
Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says that the politicians in his party are guilty of relying on talking points instead of “actually knowing things.”
As Herman Cain’s poll numbers continue to collapse, CBN took another look at Gingrich on Tuesday and released never-before-seen clips of an interview he did with David Brody last month.
“One of the Republican weaknesses is that we rely too much on consultants and too much on talking points,” the former Speaker of the House explained. “We don’t rely enough on actually knowing things.”
“If you’re going to lead the country and change history, you better know a heck of a lot before you start because there’s not much time for learning on the job.”
A survey released Monday by Public Policy Polling (PPP) found that Gingrich was ahead of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney by double digits. Another poll from CNN showed that Gingrich had a gained 14 points since October, putting him only 2 points behind Romney.
