Gingrich rails against ‘judicial supremacy’ at Values Voter Summit

News

Newt Gingrich was the last presidential candidate to speak at the "Values Voter Summit" in Washington, D.C, on Friday. He had a tough act to follow (he spoke after Herman Cain) and it showed when roughly 20 percent of the audience left the auditorium as he took the stage.

Gingrich's speech was driven by the 9th tenant of his "New Contract with America" plan: "Restoring the proper role of the judicial branch." He described at length the "flawed" and "un-American" current judicial system. "There is no judicial supremacy," he said.

Near the end, as he has done several times in his campaign, Gingrich took a shot at the current TV format of presidential debates. He said the solutions he has to offer are "more complicated" than the "game show version of a presidential debate" allows.
