These two paint quite the interesting contrast of conservative speak in our nation at the time, don't they? Here's Friedman talking about how the GOP has been running obstructionist against the President and criticizing Obama by asking why didn't he "leverage the American people." He says that the GOP is mostly to blame for our current problems, citing how Bush led us into two wars which, for the first time in our history, weren't paid for by raising taxes. On the other hand, here's Gingrich, talking about how Obama he sooo baaaaad!, reciting the common BS about how the very idea of Romney as President will drive the economy forward and how that alone will create great enough revenue, paired with some controls on spending, to balance the budget. Basically, he's doing nothing more than campaigning against Obama instead of actually addressing any issues. It seems like most of the right has sold its soul. Why doesn't the right speak more like Friedman? The GOP could sweep this election if they were only focused on real issues, instead of anti-Obama talking points.
