In his last Afterburner of 2011, Bill Whittle takes a look at the state of this country three years into Obama‘s rule and has amassed a list of breathtaking failures bound to stun and/or depress champions of smaller government. Solyndra, Fast & Furious, the Keystone Pipeline and the deficit are just a handful of the scandals that make Bill’s blood boil. So what do we need to do in 2012 to counteract Obama’s policies? Take a look.

Newt Gingrich, in a 2008 appearance at Alegent Health Clinic in Bellevue, Nebraska, expresses strong support for an individual mandate.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R.-Ga.) said on NBC’sMeet the Press” yesterday that he supports requiring all individuals to buy health insurance, post a bond to pay for health care, “or in some way you indicate you’re going to be held accountable”–a position he called a “variation” on the type of individual mandate included in President Barack Obama’s health-care reform law.

 Newt Gingrich voiced enthusiasm for Mitt Romney‘s Massachusetts health care law when it was passed five years ago, the same plan he has been denouncing over the past few months as he campaigned for the Republican presidential nomination.

“The health bill that Governor Romney signed into law this month has tremendous potential to effect major change in the American health system,” said an April 2006 newsletter published by Gingrich’s former consulting company, the Center for Health Transformation.

The two-page “Newt Notes” analysis, found online by The Wall Street Journal even though it no longer appears on the center’s website, continued, “We agree entirely with Governor Romney and Massachusetts legislators that our goal should be 100 percent insurance coverage for all Americans.”

The earlier bullish comments about the Romney health care plan are another potential embarrassment for Gingrich, who is leading Romney in most national polls for the GOP nomination.

But with a week to go before the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, Gingrich has slipped to third place in that state behind Texas Rep. Ron Paul and Romney. On other issues including climate change and mortgage giant Freddie Mac, Gingrich has struggled to reconcile his stance as a conservative with his long history of policy positions that sometimes run counter to that.

Gingrich’s rise to the top of the field has come in part from his bashing Romney for engineering a state health care expansion that became a model for President Barack Obama’s 2010 health law. “Your plan essentially is one more big-government, bureaucratic, high-cost system,” Gingrich told Romney during an October debate in Las Vegas. He said Romney was trying to solve Massachusetts’ health care problems “from the top down.”

R.C. Hammond, a spokesman for Gingrich, said the April 2006 essay shouldn’t be read as an endorsement of Romney’s health plan. He noted that it raised several questions about the Massachusetts effort, including whether the plan would work in the state. “Being critical … isn’t endorsing it,” he said.

Lincoln said:

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.

You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s

initiative and independence.

You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could

and should do for themselves.
