Editorial Reviews

Taped on December 6, 1984. Mr. Gingrich was already a leader of the conservative wing of the GOP, and Mr. Green was prominent among the remnant of "Rockefeller Republicans." Ronald Reagan having just become, barring the repeal of the 22nd Amendment, a lame duck, Mr. Buckley asks his guests to focus on "the future of the Republican Party post Reagan." They do so more in terms of programs and philosophy than of personalities, in a crisp exchange. Mr. Green, for example, defends the Federal Government's public-housing program: when it was begun "fully half of the housing in this country either lacked indoor plumbing or was so run down it was a real threat to the life and health of the people... Now, as we've gotten to the point where the housing in this country is much better, a much better case can be made for something like the housing voucher ..." Mr. Gingrich, on the other hand, sees modern liberalism as still "find[ing] it very hard to believe that average people can do anything for themselves, and so they have a tendency to provide more and more professional help, which somehow doesn't help you."

We didn't have it as bad as everyone thought. These guys have certainly changed their ways over the years. This entire series is wonderful to watch, and see how people thought and BEHAVED back in the old days. Reagan appears twice in this series and is really inspirational to watch and listen to. It's history that our children will never read in their books at school. William Buckley was a treasure. He would dig at the truth unrelentingly. If you look at the interviews with the movers and shakers of the day you will see that he treats them all the same and gets the information out easily and politely. The series is history at your fingertips.

This episode would really be of interest if one wanted to see what Gingrich was like in his earlier days. Not one of the better Firing Line episodes.
