Very good, nay, excellent statement from Newt Gingrich at the National Press Club.

What do you think?

Why? I see nothing particularly offensive about the Gingrich article.

Ditto.

Interesting perspective from Mr. Gingrich . . .

I particularly like this:

"These aren't debates," the former Georgia congressman said. "This is a cross between [TV shows] 'The Bachelor,' 'American Idol' and 'Who's Smarter than a Fifth-Grader.

Reminds me of Non-Av . . . to a degree . . . I do think some of the people here are lot smarter though.

Newt who?

Is this guy important? And he's going to run for Prez starting in October?

No, the guy has way too many skeletons in his closet. But he is a an experienced former Speaker of the House, and a keen observer of geopolitics and politics in general. Disagree with him if you like, but at least listen to what he has to say.

I was being facetious.

Yet when someone with a (D) behind their name contributes to anything, they are just furthering the liberal agenda and their comments should be dismissed. When did it become wrong to express opinion different than a conservative view? When did liberals become the bad guys? Why do we only have to do things the conservative way? Is this the "land of the free" or is it one of those nations where a small group has the only rights to anything and if you don't follow them, you get nothing?

In what world are you living in? It's not wrong to have a liberal view. Just incorrect  Wink

The best definition I have heard about the difference between liberalism and conservatism is this: Liberalism is based on how the world should be. Conservatism is based on the way the world really is.

He does raises a few valid points, particularly in the area of how expensive it is to run a campaign. I guess it's the nature of the beast, though. The US is just too big, too diverse, too far-reaching that it's near impossible to have one single cover-all-bases campaign. Plus the airtime, the print ads, and even the internet ads are not by any means cheap. Add to that the fact that with 24/7 media coverage and endless research people will dig into every single aspect of your life and it's a miracle that ANYONE wants to run at all.

My hats off to the current candidates, though. McCain, Obama, and Clinton have thus far run relatively mild campaigns compared to what most pundits predicted. And they have all shown to be way smarter than a 5th grader!

One thing I disagree with him and any of the fearmongers on is that the terrorists can't destroy the United States only the United States can destroy the United States. He is spot on with the Muslim world not condemning these acts but I would think that the peaceful ones living in those counties are afraid to speak by the penalty of death or worse, Muslims in the west have no excuse however.
