GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says President Obama’s views are influenced by Rules for Radicals author, radical community organizer Saul Alinsky.
(CNSNews.com) – The White House did not even attempt to shoot down the assertions by new GOP presidential frontrunner Newt Gingrich that President Obama is deeply influenced by the radical Chicago community organizer Saul Alinsky.
White House press secretary Jay Carney replied to a question on the subject at Monday’s press briefing by saying the president’s time as a community organizer was “well documented,” and adding, “his experience is a broad-based one that includes a lot of other areas in his life. I’ll just leave it at that.”
The former House speaker has said on the stump that his campaign will represent the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence. By contrast, he said, Obama’s campaign is based on Alinsky’s views.
During a CNN debate last week in Charleston, S.C., Gingrich said of Obama, “This is, I believe, the most dangerous president of our lifetime, and if he is reelected, after the disaster he has been, the level of radicalism of his second term will be truly frightening.”
