New Hampshire Union Leader editiorial on Newt

Link to full story on An excerpt:
In last Monday’s CNN-Tea Party candidates’ encounter, Republican presidential aspirant Newt Gingrich made an excellent point regarding who may be scaring whom the most on the subject of Social Security. He was not very concerned about the verbal tussle going on between Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, Gingrich said, not when President Barack Obama is telling the country he couldn’t guarantee that Social Security checks would go out last month.

“Now, why should young people who are 16 to 25 years old have politicians have the power for the rest of their life to threaten to take away their Social Security?’’ Gingrich asked.


Liberal news media, which have already decided the GOP battle is a two-man contest, are all for making as much of the Social Security issue as possible. But it was Gingrich who scored best on the subject by turning it back on the Democrats, who are intent on demagoguing this one until next November. The Republican Party and its contenders may want to look to former Speaker Gingrich for the best strategy on Social Security questions and perhaps on many others.
