Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

I continue to be utterly amazed at why people support Newt Gingrich. He's supported Cap & Trade, he supported liberal in Republican clothing, Dede Scozzafava over Doug Hoffman, he admitted to Hannity that the talk show host was right about Obama before the 2008 elections and that he (Gingrich) was wrong - although, to Gingrich's credit, it was refreshing to see a politician admit to being wrong. Now it appears that the former House Speaker, once a confirmed speaker at the 9/11 protest of the Ground Zero mosque, is backing out.

Via the Hill:
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) will not be addressing a protest of the proposed mosque in lower Manhattan on the anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

The organizers of the rally, Stop Islamization of America and Freedom Defense Initiative, announced Gingrich as one of the event’s confirmed speakers on the Web last weekend.
Why? Check out this lame excuse; it would make leftwing wackos like Howard Dean blush over the inconsistencies and contradictions:
...a spokesman for Gingrich, a possible 2012 presidential candidate, told The Hill that the former leader of the House had never confirmed his appearance. Instead, one of Gingrich’s staff had agreed to send a video message from him to be shown at the Sept. 11 rally.

That has since been canceled.

“The confusion is at least partially our fault,” said Joe DeSantis, a spokesman for Gingrich. “A staff member mistakenly promised a video message, though not an appearance. However, we are not sending a video. We informed them earlier this week.”
There is AT LEAST one lie in there - possibly more. The truth is that Newt Gingrich is a political coward and has no business being a candidate for president in 2012.

Unlike Gingrich, a Dutch politician is bucking the advice of his colleagues in The Netherlands not to attend the protest.
The Dutch politician's outspoken criticism of Islam has generated scores of death threats over the years and he lives under 24-hour security protection. The British government prohibited him from entering the country in February 2009, a ban later overturned following an appeal by Wilders. And the politician is currently on trial on hate-speech charges in the Netherlands, where he has called the Koran a "fascist book."

"I will go to New York and say what I want there,” Wilders told Dutch media. “Nobody will stop me. No mosque at Ground Zero!”
Gingrich has proven once and for all that he does not have the political courage to be president in these very serious times. This is his Neville Chamberlain moment.

Read it all.
