Newt Gingrich said during a recent debate he was tired of their defending the failed administration of President Obama. They're more concerned about Gingrich's ex-wives than with the ideological roots of an administration led by a former community organizer steeped in Alinsky radicalism.
Few paid much attention when candidate Barack Obama told a rally shortly before the 2008 election that he was five days away from fundamentally transforming America.

He draws his from Saul Alinsky, radical left-wingers and people who don't like the classical America."
