Newt Gingrich apparently won Monday nights debate on Fox News, but likely this is a case of a last-second touchdown when you are down by two touchdowns. Seth Leibsohn of National Review Online gave the night to Newt: When he is right, he is great. The ongoing problem is when he is wrong. But tonight he was right about a lot, and said it better than anyone.
Newt showed his Tea Party side:
I think its very important for us to look at job creation. As a young member of Congress, I worked with President Ronald Reagan. We passed an economic growth package. We created 16 million jobs. The American people within a framework that Reagan had established created 16 million jobs.
As speaker I came back working with President Bill Clinton, we passed a very Reagan-like program, less regulation, lower taxes. Unemployment dropped to 4.2 percent. We created 11 million jobs. Now, those are real numbers that people can verify out in the open.
And I like that when asked about his plan for Social Security he brought back.
When Bush presented it 7 years ago, the press and the Democrats (and too many Republicans) blasted it because it would divert money from Social Security now we are diverting three times as much and calling it a payroll tax cut.
Anyway, From Newt:
Well, it is, as a historian, a fact-based model that has Galveston, Texas, and the entire country of Chile as testing grounds. Chile has done this. Jose Pineras glad to talk about it, the guy who created it, they have done it for over 30 years.

If Newt wins South Carolina, he'll win the nomination. Go Newt!
Well he does have the endorsement of a tea party hating pro amnesty group. That’s gotta count for something.
You may need to write a letter to the editor ;~)
I didn’t watch the debate but local radio played Newt’s big time put down of Juan Williams question about hiring black youths. The crowd reaction was great!
I’m sure now Juan will be saying that the event must have been a cracker KKK rally!! LOL.
The Truth is a refreshing drink of cold water, is it not?
Take the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of Truth, and cleave the joint from the marrow...
Newt. Romney without ethics.
That we have two choices now: 1) Unify behind Newt or 2) allow Romney to win - is blatantly obvious at this point.
The “legacy of slavery” has been constantly, generationally pounded into the black culture such that any suggestion of hard work being a positive is considered demeaning,
and even pointing out this cultural revulsion of “demeaning” work is “raaaayyyssssisss”.
I think that is a planted front group dreamed up and paid off by Team Romney to do harm to Newt.
Ooops. Mea culpa for the error. As for his post - 100% truth in a way that I hope everyone can comprehend. If SC goes to Romney there is a chance FL may be too late.
Why in the world are we talking about “last second touchdowns” when only a few thousand folks have voted in two small oddball states?
Damn good question. It is because Team Romney and its media minions are scared to death of Newt. Willard was bruised last night and he has sent the word out to attack and spin furiously.
No kidding. *Sheeesh*
Why flame away?
You make an asinine, unsubstantiated charge, and then beg to be flamed.
The great aspect about FR is that Jim Rob permits stupid, ignorant statements to be made by Mooks and you fit the bill.
It's your right to be stupid, and don't let any one try to educate you, you are entitled to your ignorant opinion.
Enuff flame, feel better now?
Actually Juan was pretty humble in his defeat.
You are correct that I want Newt to go away (just like that guy in Iowa after Newt called Ryan’s plan ‘right wing social engineering’).
My choices were/are Sarah, Herman, Bachmann, Santorum and Romney.
I oppose Paul and Newt although I would probably vote for them over O.
