Fultonville, NY– I’m at a rest area along the New York Thruway, after having turned around 500 miles today. Not much to report, really.
- Saithood? I commend to your reading an article by Thomas Sowell. I made a point last week about Gingrich’s legislative record vs Romney’s… and Sowell does as well:
While the televised debates are what gave Newt Gingrich’s candidacy a big boost, concrete accomplishments when in office are the real test. Gingrich engineered the first Republican takeover of the House of Representatives in 40 years — followed by the first balanced budget in 40 years. The media called it “the Clinton surplus” but all spending bills start in the House of Representatives, and Gingrich was Speaker of the House.
Speaker Gingrich also produced some long overdue welfare reforms, despite howls from liberals that the poor would be devastated. But nobody makes that claim any more.
Did Gingrich ruffle some feathers when he was Speaker of the House? Yes, enough for it to cost him that position. But he also showed that he could produce results.
In a world where we can make our choices only among the alternatives actually available, the question is whether Newt Gingrich is better than Barack Obama — and better than Mitt Romney.
Romney is a smooth talker, but what did he actually accomplish as governor of Massachusetts, compared to what Gingrich accomplished as Speaker of the House? When you don’t accomplish much, you don’t ruffle many feathers. But is that what we want?
My answer of course, is not only no, but HELL NO.
- It’s up to 90? Daily caller says; Now, 90 congressmen have ‘no confidence’ in Holder or believe he should quit. Of course the question is why it’s taken this long to get to that choice and why the rest aren’t on board.
- Voting rights?
69% Say Photo ID Voting Laws Are Not Discriminatory – Rasmussen Reports Do you suppose the Dems will be trumpeting that message? Me, neither.
