Newt Gingrich Defines 'Social Engineering'

Newt was on Rush Limbaugh's radio program this afternoon. Rush wants to know what Newt was talking about on Meet The Press over the weekend -- and asked Gingrich to define what he meant by "social engingeering":
"It's very straightforward. It's when the government comes in and tells you how to live your life and what you're gonna do -- whether the values that lead it to do that are left-wing values, or the values that lead it to do that are right-wing values," said Gingrich. "I believe in personal freedom. I believe in your right to lead your life. I believe that we are endowed by the Declaration of Independence, by our Creator, with the right to pursue happiness. And I want a government that is much more humble about its ability to tell you what to do, whether it's people on either side of the ideological spectrum."
So, personal responsibility, eh Newt?

The right to lead your life? You don't want the government to 'come in and tell you how to live your life'?

So, what's your position on marriage equality again Newt?

Rrrright.
