Gingrich: I Got A Fever, And The Only Cure Is The Gold Standard and Plenty of Palin in My Cabinet

All about the Gold Standard.

“The very purpose of founding the Constitution was landowners and property owners who did not want inflation. And they felt that under the Articles of Confederation they were increasingly getting inflated paper money.

“Hard money is a discipline. It means you can’t just hide from your problems; you’ve got to solve them. And you can’t inflate away your difficulties; you actually have to work them away. But I think it is very important for us to understand in finance that the entire contraption that has been built up over the last thirty or forty years has so much paper in it, so much debt, so much leverage, that we probably have a fifteen or twenty year period of working our way out of it.

“And yet, the alternative is to get sicker and sicker and sicker.”

I completely believe he was won over on that in the past three weeks.

Meanwhile, he's all about Secretary Sarah Palin.

"Gov. Palin is somebody who I think was a very good reform governor. She was extraordinarily effective negotiating with big oil. She did a good job in the state of Alaska. I think she’s a very articulate leader of the tea party conservative movement. I was honored and delighted last night when she said if she were in South Carolina, she’d vote for Newt Gingrich. I hope everybody who likes her decides she’s right. And I hope they vote for me.

"Certainly, she’s one of the people I’d call on for advice. I would ask her to consider taking a major role in the next administration if I’m president, but nothing has been discussed of any kind. And it wouldn’t be appropriate to discuss it at this time."

Another bold decision.

I'll also learn Chinese, if you like.
