He’s the professor. Finally, someone told the truth...just about.
They need to look at the root of the problem. That is when Clinton and Rubin who put the fix in on the real estate market by demanding banks give loans to poor people and ignore the “racist” loan qualification standards. The banksters got deregulation in exchange for crashing the real estate market.
But Newt is very good and swinging facts together. Except when it comes to algore’s nonsense and globalism’s “third way.”
I have no idea how he would be in defense.
And here we are.
I think he came to an epiphany during his time away from office and his study into the history of government in this country.
As a result, he has a historian’s insight (an unclouded, liberal-free version of history) as to how much danger this country is in.
He has no reason to run: His ego was served by his run on Fox, he isn’t hurting for cash and he sees what a disaster the current administration has caused.
But, I think he more than any other candidate, realizes that this country is on the brink. He sees the things that historically made this country strong are being driven out of the national conscience and he sees the inherent dangers of over reliance on a socialist federal scheme.
This puts him squarely in the crusader role in the debates. He talks with the absolute certainty of a man with nothing to prove and nothing to lose.
I regret his personal decisions - although I don’t fault him for the couch debacle: Everyone has a moment of lucidity in their lives.
But, I would trust the future of the Republic in his care. I don’t know that I would do that with some of the others on that stage...
