Newt’s bad narrative has made a mockery of this presidential race.
(Page 2 of 2)
Both Romney and Gingrich have ideas to help our economy. Obama has just told Congress he wants to use the last $1 trillion in borrowing authority given him in the August debt ceiling deal. Our debt now exceeds the annual value of our entire economy, and nothing is being done to get us out of the no-growth “jobless recovery” we’re still suffering through.
House and Senate Republicans are in desperate need of presidential-level leadership. That’s hard to do before we have a Republican president, but not impossible. The Dems hold the Senate, but Republicans hold the House and can, if they want to, actually pass bills quickly despite the Dems’ objections.
Gingrich and Romney should each take their two or three top economic ideas to Speaker Boehner, Republican Conference Chairman Tom Price, and Republican Steering Committee Chairman Jim Jordan. Ask them to put the ideas in legislation and bring them up for a vote.
At that point, the debate can be shifted to opposing Obama and seeing who — between Romney and Gingrich — can best help lead Congress to actually accomplish something.
The Republican Party is in desperate need of a national leader. Neither Romney nor Gingrich can achieve that stature unless they can demonstrate — beyond the primaries — the leadership talent that person must have. How else are you going to do it, gents?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
