Former House speaker Newt Gingrich pushed for a change of focus in the conservative movement today, saying that ideas, not opposition to the president, must drive the movement.


“We are not the anti-Obama movement,” Gingrich said at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “We are for a greater American future.”



“We have to disenthrall ourselves of the establishment’s anti-idea approach,” he said. We must disenthrall from the accountant green-eye-shades approach to thinking about budgets. We must disenthrall ourselves from a consultant culture which politics can be reduced to raising money to run ads to attack somebody.”


“You’re going to hear a false attack that we don’t need new ideas,” Gingrich added. “We don’t need new principles, but we need lots of ideas about how to implement those principles in the 21st century.”
