According to various news sites, House Speaker Newt Gingrich officially announced today his bid for the Republican nomination for president.

As uploaded on YouTube by ngingrich, the former House Speaker announced his presidential bid.

As he was quoted saying, “I believe we can return America to hope and opportunity, to full employment, to real security, to an American energy program, to a balanced budget.”

“As Speaker of the House,” Gingrich says, “I worked to reform welfare, to balance the budget, to control spending, to cut taxes to create economic growth, unemployment came down from 5.6% to under 4. For four years, we balanced the budget, and paid off $405 billion in debt. We’ve done it before, we can do it again.”

Apparently he also promises to “tell the truth” and “make the tough choices.”

Furthermore he adds “There’s a much better American future ahead with more jobs, more prosperity, a better health system, longer lives, greater independent living, in a country that is decentralized under the 10th Amendment, with power once again back with the American people and away from Washington bureaucracy.”

Gingrich adds, “There are some people who don’t mind if America becomes a wreck as long as they dominate the wreckage. But you and I know better.”
