Gingrich: The Left Doesn't 'Believe the Wright Brothers Invented Flying'
One of the most amazing things about Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign is that the longer it goes on, the less chance he has of actually winning and the more divorced (no pun intended) he becomes from reality.
Yesterday, ahead of the primaries in Mississippi and Alabama, Gingrich called into Janet Mefferd's radio program for a short interview where they discussed Gingrich's plan to get the price of gasoline down to $2.50 a gallon which he claimed was terrifying liberals because the Left fears energy independence and rejects new technology:
Liberals have this desire to ration, to regulate, to control and the possibility that we could actually produce enough energy that we did not need the Middle East is something that most liberals just look at with fear because it suddenly means that you and I could be free, we could buy the kind of car that we want, we'd have a job here at home, the government would be less important. It's a fascinating experience.
The Left has believed for at least forty years now in a concept called Peak Oil that says 'gee, we're about to run out." Well, it turns out that our reserves in the US, because of new technology, which is something that the Left rejects - they don't believe the Wright Brothers invented flying, they don't believe Edison invented electric light, and they don't believe we're about to invent the next generation of interesting things.
