A voice of sanity is now emerging on the right over President Obama’s stay-in-school speech tomorrow: Newt Gingrich.

Gingrich put up this Twitter post this afternoon, after the White House released the text of the speech:

Just read President Obamas speech to students.white House posted it. it is a good speech and will be good for students to hear

And he followed it up with this:

Remember that Presidents Reagan and Bush also talked to students nationwide. As long as it is non political and pro education it is good

Gingrich also appeared yesterday on Fox News Sunday, and spoke out in favor of the speech.
