"France without wine"

That's Newt Gingrich's interpretation of the Dems' vision for America.

“There is an honest, big government, semi-socialist, European welfare state model that currently people like Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Reid and President Obama believe in. They would like America to become France without the wine.”

Today, the former-and-current-everything spoke to a large group of conservative college students at a Young America's Foundation event, and as ABC's Devin Dwyer reports, managed to field a 2012 question.

The enthusiasm for Gingrich and his ideas was readily apparent throughout the speech. In the closing moments of the Q&A session, Samuel Settleman from Pennsylvania State University asked if Gingrich “might have managed to schedule any vacation time around 2012 for states like Iowa, New Hampshire or Michigan?”

“In my experience, what you’re referring to doesn’t sound like much of a vacation,” Gingrich replied as the crowd laughed and applauded. “My sense is you actually have to work pretty hard in those states. But it’s something closely I’ll look at in January 2011.”

Newt's been with the January 2011 thing for awhile now. Remember this event, back on March 6?
