(Washington : Ucs News) While appearing on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Newt Gingrich admitted feeling guilt for the senseless loss of life in Virginia. “As part of the nations media elite I have never taken responsibility for the things I have done and said, instead I make a living foisting blame upon others.”
George Stephanopoulos asked Gingrich if his failures as Speaker of the House also may have caused the 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton. In reply Gingrich stated “At the time I was too focused pathetic banalities of partisian pollitics, I did nothing to provide improved mental heath care and I never considered sensible gun ownership reforms.”
In the wake of the 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich laid the blame for the tragedy at the feet of liberals. He now feels it was his duty to stop such tragedies. “I don’t have the courage to look at the world I helped create or the imagination to see a different world.”
George Stephanopoulos asked Gingrich if the Republican cuts in mental heath programs will lead to more tragedies like the Virginia Tech massacre. “Yes,” Gingrich said, offering a rambling, nonsensical response that segued into how he doesn’t really feel qualified to speak on moral or ethical issues, due to his troubled past.
