Newt's right. Many of you out there will be blind to the notion and think it won't happen and won't want to believe it... but, if Hillary runs, she will ALMOST be unbeatable. The economy is going to bounce back some regardless of what Obama does. He is going to get cradit and Hillary is going to ride in saying "more time" to make it even better and to state her case as to why she would have been better at foriegn policy (and she probably would have been). This is why what Ann Coulter said makes complete sense. The Republicans cannot win and cannot win the marketing campaign in the media. They should stand down and let Obama and the Dems do what they want economically so that own it 100% and cannot blame republicans for...

so clue me in imbecile,

what are the signs of a thriving economy and at what point can we expect this miracle to occur, in light of 4 years of failure and 5 trillion dollars of additional debt thanks to comrade hussein';s out of control spending

so it's your contention that raising the taxes by a small margin on the evil rich repubs will suddenly work and the economy will be revived

From my experience as a successful business person, with a higher tax rate I was always inclined to invest in my business ( which stimulated the local economy) to avoid paying the higher rate. Depreciation and amortization deductions were always incentives for me to invest in my own company. See how it works, raise taxes and business will invest more of their cash in their own business to reduce taxes.

Explain why the economy is going to bounce back regardless of what Obama does. All I've been hearing lately from TH is Obama is going to drive it into the ground. You can't have it both ways.

Okay, that’s not exactly what the former House Speaker said, but it’s pretty darn close:

;

“If [the Republicans'] competitor in ‘16 is going to be Hillary Clinton -- supported by Bill Clinton and presumably a still relatively popular President Barack Obama -- trying to win that will be [like winning] the Super Bowl. And the Republican Party today is incapable of competing at that level.”

Gingrich raises some interesting points. But while Hillary Clinton is indeed
