Morning Newsdome: Newt Gingrich thinks civil rights was a mistake?

Cropped Newt

>> The House of Representatives actually approved health care legislation last night, guaranteeing Americans access to medical care for the first time and cementing President Obama's legacy. Now no one get sick. (the LA Times)

>> Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich said the Democrats will regret "the most modern social experiment ... in modern times," or health care reform,  because it will destroy Obama like enacting civil rights laws in the '60s "shattered" Lyndon Johnson and the Democratic party. Civil rights--HUGE mistake! (the Washington Post)

>> Tea Party protesters yelled derogatory remarks to House Democrats preceding the president's speech on Saturday, calling Georgia's own Rep. John Lewis the n-word and Rep. Barney Frank of Mass. a "fa**ot." So this is what 2010 looks like. (the Huffington Post)

>> Virginia's Republican Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli said he will sue the federal government over health care reform, saying Congress can't force people to buy health insurance. Haven't you learned anything, Kenneth? It's the government. They can do whatever they want. (AP)

>> And finally: Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, after calling for Internet censorship in his country last week,  says he is "pro-Internet" and will begin blogging from the presidential palace. Lets hope this goes the way of Kanye and Courtney Love, and babbling blog posts will be soon to follow. (the Wall Street Journal)
