I’d commented just this morning that I’d seen more than enough of Newt. Then this was sent to me by a relative of a relative;
Not too shabby for a Republican. The problem for Newt though is that we know Newt. He has a history. I can only assume that this was a trial balloon for him– to see how this sort of thing sells in the marketplace (in the minds of people like him) in which the industry of political rhetoric sells its wares. He’s a craftsman in the art. I still think the world is better off with Newt as a history teacher.
“Isolate and crush the secular socialist left” he says. The only reference to liberty he makes is to religious liberty. OK, what about the religious socialist left? Why bring in the “secular” bit when you could just say “crush the socialists”? He still talks about “running” the country too. That bugs me– Raise your hand if you want to be run by someone in Washington. See? Didn’t think so.
