    Will Gingrich use the Bush model of creating a "War for Civilization" that allows him to use national security to move the job's crisis off the front page?

    How long will it take for President Gingrich to become a war president? As with Bush, he needs to make his 2nd term about National Security and not the economy. The old high wage postwar jobs are not coming back. The real trick of the post-jobs Presidency is to do anything and everything to move unemployment off the front page. The current Republican party does this better than the post-sixties anti-war left.

    Will Gingrich use the Bush model? Will he take an admittedly real threat but use it politically?

    How long before Radical Islam pushes the unemployment numbers off the front page?

    Where will the Gingrich War come from?

    When was the last Republican President who didn't have a major war or civilizational struggle?

    When will the Gingrich War start? When will the "War on Terrorism" be back? When will FOX News start broadcasting daily fear briefings? When will the surveillance of Americans go into overdrive with Patriot Act, generation III?

    Fasten your seat belts children. The National Security State of Fear is coming back.

    Obama is already using that model or have you been ignoring the obvious?

    As oopsed to Paul, who is happy to let our enemies regroup.
    I'll point out that Bush's foreign policy was very successful: elimination of al Qaeda as a major terrorist force, elimination of Saddam, elimination of Ghaddafy. Becoming a fourth-rate power just isn't in the cards.
