You know, I never thought Newt Gingrich had a shot at beating Obama in the general election. However, had Gingrich won the GOP nomination, he wouldn’t have left so much on the table to bash Obama over and over again like Romney did. But it looks like Gingrich’s progressive side is coming out of the closet again like when he sat on the couch with Nancy Pelosi to talk about the ‘dangers’ of global warming. Now Gingrich is saying that the GOP must ‘Accommodate and Deal With Reality’ on Same-sex Marriage.
– Former GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich reportedly said Thursday that conservatives and the Republican Party need to “accommodate and deal with (the) reality” of a “big wave of change” sweeping America – and that “gay relationships will be legal, period” in a number of states by 2014.
In an interview published Thursday by the liberal Web site, “The Huffington Post, ” Gingrich reportedly said that both he and the Republican Party could accept a distinction between a “marriage in a church from a legal document issued by the state,” with the latter being acceptable, according to the Web site.
The publication indicated that Gingrich “continued to profess a belief that marriage is defined as being between a man and a woman,” but that he thinks “Republicans could no longer close their eyes to the course of public opinion.”
“I think that this will be much more difficult than immigration for conservatism to come to grips with,” Gingrich reportedly told the Web site.
