This week Newt Gingrich formally announced he’s running for president in 2012. However, when it comes to getting the conservative base on board, the campaign’s spin on his much talked about 2008 PSA with Nancy Pelosi will — not unlike trying to get Al Gore off the ground in an ultralight — never fly.

From Fox News:

“Newt does not apologize for trying to persuade his ideological opponents that his conservative solutions are the best solutions,” spokesman Rick Tyler said in an email. “His attempt to work with Speaker Pelosi is another testament to Gingrich’s willingness to debate his conservative solutions with liberals, in this case Pelosi. As it turned out, Pelosi … and Gingrich still disagree about how to best protect the environment. But Gingrich will never shy away from debating those on the left on issues like the environment, education and healthcare that they think they own.”

The 2008 ad was cut for Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection. It showed Pelosi and Gingrich sitting very close on a couch outside the U.S. Capitol.

Usually you don’t see “debates” this confrontational without somebody ending up pregnant:

Clearly Republican voters are going to have to crank the “tough love” up a notch in the coming primary months.

Okay, now let’s talk about this “Winning the Future” thing….
