Read the script below.
SCRIPT: “From debates you’d think Newt Gingrich was Ronald Reagan’s Vice President. Gingrich exaggerates, dropping Reagan’s name 50 times. But in his diaries, Ronald Reagan mentions Newt Gingrich only once. Reagan criticized Gingrich saying Newt’s ideas would “cripple our defense program”. Reagan rejected Newt’s ideas. On leadership and character, Newt Gingrich is no Ronald Reagan.”
