Gingrich: Conservatives Must Be A Movement of “Yes”

Mike Brownfield /

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has a message for conservatives if they want to succeed in changing the debate in Washington: conservatives must be a movement of “yes,” and they must stand for what they will do.

He delivered that message today at The Bloggers Briefing, a gathering of conservative bloggers from across the capital, held at The Heritage Foundation.

Gingrich also has a slogan for conservatives – “2 + 2 = 4” – which he describes as a way to slow down the political debate in America and serves as a reminder of what he says the left’s agenda is really about – an Orwellian government machine that tries to sell Americans on the notion that two-plus-two equals three, when in reality, it’s not.
