Newt in Iowa: Obama "most radical president in American history"

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was in Iowa on Thursday and he had a lot to say. First stop was Pella, home of the Dutch-made windmill pictured on the left, which I visited just last month. (Iowa will be my next travel series.) While there Gingrich said, "Obama – partially because of his belief in his own oratorical abilities – is the most radical President in American history." He also said that a Republican Party victory in November was a near certainty because of "the performance failure of the Obama/Reid/Pelosi team."

Gingrich, a former history professor, also let loose on contemporary academia:

The other thing you also have to do is figure out how you're going to take on political correctness in universities...They only recruit from people who are nuts. You end up with people who are so far to the left that they are literally not in contact with reality.
Well, done, Newt.
