If Mitt Romney could explain issues like this, he’d be a sure winner against Obama.

I hope President Romney, if he wins, appoints Newt as Secy of Energy.

Quotes of the Week

Williams Jacobson:

Indeed, Carbonite still advertises on the show of Ed  Schultz, who makes unhinged attacks on the Tea Party and conservatives daily, and called conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham a slut (for which he later apologized).

Rich Lowry:

President Obama looks down on drilling almost as much as he does on people clinging bitterly to their guns and religion.

At a recent campaign event, he mocked Republicans for their alleged three-point energy plan, every point of which he said is a call for more drilling. When the hilarity died down, he assailed all this prospective oil and gas exploration as “not a plan,” but “a bumper sticker,” a cynical and witless attempt to demagogue soaring gas prices. Pity the fools who propose such asininity and the simple-minded souls who believe it.

In practically his next breath, though, the president bragged that “under my administration, America is producing more oil today than at any time in the last eight years.” The “under my administration” is particularly rich. It implies that the lights have been on late at night at the Energy Department — compact fluorescents, no doubt — figuring out how to make America a pin-cushion for the great and good work of those much misunderstood oil companies.

Peggy Noonan:

Afterward I thought again of something that has been on my mind the past five years or so. Longer, actually, but more so with time. In a way the argument between conservatives and progressives is that for the left, everything is about politics. Because they seek to harness government and the law in pursuit of what they see as just and desirable ends, everything becomes a political fight. Conservatives fought that narrow, constricted, soulless view of life: “We are not only political, we have other spheres, we are human beings.”

Andrew Breitbart:

Make no mistake: America is in a media war. It is an extension of the Cold War that never ended but shifted to an electronic front. The war between freedom and statism ended geographically when the Berlin Wall fell. But the existential battle never ceased.

When the Soviet Union disintegrated, the battle simply took a different form. Instead of missiles the new weapon was language and education, and the international left had successfully constructed a global infrastructure to get its message out.

Schools. Newspapers. Network news. Art. Music. Film. Television. . . .

If the political left weren’t so joyless, humorless, intrusive, taxing, overtaxing, anarchistic, controlling, rudderless, chaos-prone, pedantic, unrealistic, hypocritical, clueless, politically correct, angry, cruel, sanctimonious, retributive, redistributive, intolerant—and if the political left weren’t hell-bent on expansion of said unpleasantness into all aspects of my family’s life—the truth is, I would not be in your life.

If the Democratic Party were run by Joe Lieberman and Evan Bayh, if it had the slightest vestige of JFK and Henry “Scoop” Jackson, I wouldn’t be on the political map.

If the American media were run by biased but not evil Tim Russerts and David Brinkleys, I wouldn’t have joined the fight. . . .

If America’s pop-cultural ambassadors like Alec Baldwin and Janeane Garofalo didn’t come back from their foreign trips to tell us how much they hate us, if my pay cable didn’t highlight a comedy show every week that called me a racist for embracing constitutional principles and limited government, I wouldn’t be at Tea Parties screaming my love for this great, charitable, and benevolent country.

I am a reluctant cultural warrior.

This Week:

STEPHANOPOULOS: But, Mr. Speaker, there’s really no way for you to get enough delegates before the convention, so this, as you said, could be a long fight if it’s going to be successful for you. When we have seen this happen in the past — 1952 for the Democrats, 1976 for the Republicans, 1980 for the Democrats — it means that party loses in the general election. Are you worried that this kind of long fight is going to put your nominee at risk?

GINGRICH: No. George, I’ll be glad to swap history credentials with you. Four years ago, I believe it was, that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton went all the way to late June before their race ended. And yet that seemed to actually be more advantageous to then-Senator Obama than Senator McCain having gotten the nomination early. So I think it all depends on which year you’re talking about and how it evolves, what happens.

of Legal Insurrection posits a great question.

I think it helps Newt. A lot. But since I have to assume that the DNC knows how voters behave considerably better than I do, the next question is are they playing chess and doing this to help defeat Romney with Republican primary voters and make it more likely that they’re facing Newt and not Mitt?

Uh Oh, Sen. Tom Coburn Strongly Against Newt as President.

Readers of this blog will know that I was very supportive of Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels running for president. With him out, my next choice (that also wouldn’t happen) was Tom Coburn.  Both of those two have the ability to explain what the problems are and how to solve them, and do so in a way that most people can understand while not turning off the average voter.  It’s the same quality that Gov Chris Christie has.

So what’s wrong with Newt Gingrich? I can say the same thing about him, but… And that’s the problem. There are a lot of “buts.” I believe that Newt has the most talent of all the candidates to communicate a clear message, but Coburn’s opinion means a lot to me.

Here’s a link to Tom Corburn’s comments from this morning’s appearance on Fox.  Coburn blasts Gingrich, found his leadership ‘lacking’ as House Speaker.

There has never been a time in my life where I was ever just for a segment of the population succeeding. Class warfare has always shown an ugly side of human nature, and unfortunately demagogues have usually been able to capitalize on that failing.
