Newt Heads Off The Rails

I have no idea WTF my former boss is trying to say here:
Gingrich: Obama’s ‘Kenyan, anti-colonial’ worldview September 11, 2010 10:52 P.M.
By Robert Costa
Citing a recent Forbes article by Dinesh D’Souza, former House speaker Newt Gingrich tells National Review Online that President Obama may follow a “Kenyan, anti-colonial” worldview.
Gingrich says that D’Souza has made a “stunning insight” into Obama’s behavior — the “most profound insight I have read in the last six years about Barack Obama.”
“What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]?” Gingrich asks. “That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.”
“This is a person who is fundamentally out of touch with how the world works, who happened to have played a wonderful con, as a result of which he is now president,” Gingrich tells us.
“I think he worked very hard at being a person who is normal, reasonable, moderate, bipartisan, transparent, accommodating — none of which was true,” Gingrich continues. “In the Alinksy tradition, he was being the person he needed to be in order to achieve the position he needed to achieve . . . He was authentically dishonest.”
“[Obama] is in the great tradition of Edison, Ford, the Wright BrothersBill Gates — he saw his opportunity and he took it,” Gingrich says. Will Gingrich take it back in 2012? “The American people may take it back, in which case I may or may not be the recipient of that, but I have zero doubt that the American people will take it back. Unlike Ford, the Wright Brothers, et cetera, this guy’s invention did not work.”
“I think Obama gets up every morning with a worldview that is fundamentally wrong about reality,” Gingrich says. “If you look at the continuous denial of reality, there has got to be a point where someone stands up and says that this is just factually insane.”

"Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior"?  Really?? 

Actually, change my opening statement that. I think I know exactly what he's trying to do -- and it depresses me to no end. I'll discuss more on this later. In the interim, I hope to try and forget how insane the world has gone by having a few pints with my Sunday football.

(By the way, clicking on the above link may not bring up the actual story. I tried it this morning and ended up only at NRO's Corner. May just be temporary glitch -- since we all know that nothing ever truly disappears from the 'Net).
