Gingrich was for and against the financial bail out in the same interview. He attacked it initially saying, "And I have said over and over, you can’t have capitalism on the way up and socialism on the way down because you get socialism both ways."
A little later in defending George Bush he said, “If we don’t do X, Y and Z, the entire world economy is going to collapse. That’s pretty good grounds for stopping and trying to do something."
I guess it's okay when there is a Republican president.
