and I wish he was right.
The fledgling candidate announced in Iowa that he is going to propose a newer Contract with America:
It “will be 10 times deeper and more comprehensive than 1994,” he told an audience of about 40 people Monday night in Council Bluffs. “Because the truth is, while we changed the system some … we didn’t fundamentally change the underlying system.”
The new “21st Century Contract with America” will, he said.
Gingrich said his ideas, which he will unveil Sept. 29 in Des Moines, are “very big, and they’re exactly what Abraham Lincoln would have campaigned on.”
The concept of proposing ideas is a nice change of pace, and Newt is trying as hard as he can to show that he is the smartest candidate. However, I think this would have fit in much better without a a [nearly] twenty year gap between “contracts.” The last thing the GOP should do is try to run with the same proposals that situated an unpopular Democrat President to gain re-election.
I hope he sticks around for another few weeks: I actually enjoy Newt in debates [it’s all relative]. I think he’s pretty harmless as a primary player since anyone over the age of 20 knows that he’s one of the biggest opportunists in modern politics.
