A Few Words For Newt Gingrich

He cannot acknowledge Newt's ideas to substantially pay down the national debt and to fix the broken social security system, because the logical follow up question to him is how does Romney plan to address these two major issues. For this he has no good answer, so he must stick to the most simple ideas like approve the Keystone Pipeline.

If Romney imitated Reagan, in policy, he would get a similar result.
None of the result will be spoken of by the people in the tank for our community organizer, but, as I have said, many times, I recall Carter's time, with people unemployed and the roads full of rusty junkers. A few years later, after Reagan acted, the cars people drove were new.
Unemployment was down, and Democrats railed about anything, constantly, while we could afford thinking about a colony on the Moon. We cannot, now. In fact, the economic automobile is heading, minute by minute, to the cliff.
I believe this is intentional, and with the blessings, planning and work of Piven, Ayres et al.
Everyone should read what they said, and still say.
Birds of a feather.

Newt Gingrich finally made it formal. He's now ended his presidential race with characteristic bombast. The real news, the big surprise, was that he made it this far. And resisted dropping out for this long. The man has a real talent -- for ignoring reality.

If character really is fate, the Newt should have been done as a presidential candidate as soon as his dubious connections with Freddie Mac became common knowledge....
