Newt Gingrich Speaks At CPAC

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was the last of the 2012 GOP Presidential contenders to speak to the CPAC audience in Washington DC today.

Newt was introduced by his wife, Callista, and had a photo compilation of his major endorsers "behind him" above the stage.

Newt's speech focused on how, as he says it, his candidacy makes the GOP and Washington elites uncomfortable. He alluded to the 1980 Reagan campaign, as well as his 1994 Contract with America and how the establishment always said it was impossible.

While Santorum gave a great speech that highlighted his conservative principles, Romney thought he could hypnotize the audience into believe he was a conservative by repeating the word, Newt proposed ideas and illustrated just what he would do if elected President.

Clips of his speech follow.

Newt then worked the crowd, taking a good amount of time to shake hands up at the front while a great, Joe Satriani-esque instrumental rocked the ballroom.
