“‘Consultants argue that public anger, if properly stoked, alone can carry the party over the finish line. In their view, getting bogged down in the issues is a distraction and even a potential liability. One who begs to differ is the architect of the last GOP takeover of the House. ‘Consultants, in my opinion, are stupid,’ former speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said in an interview. ‘The least idea-oriented, most mindless campaign of simplistic slogans is a mindless idea.'” — from the Washington Post, July 17, 2010
From the inside flap of “To Save America: Stopping Obama’s Secular-Socialist Machine,” by Newt Gingrich:
The Obama administration is conspiring to transform America. They want to remake our America—of free enterprise, faith, and personal freedom—into their America—of endless bureaucracy, secularism, and state control—despite overwhelming opposition from the American people…How could such a radical president and his congressional leaders get elected and then take a center-right country in a socialist direction bitterly opposed by most Americans? Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has the answer: the Left have built a secular-socialist machine out of corruption, lust for power, and sheer ruthlessness, and are using it to steamroll over the will of the people…
Exposing the mortal threat now facing America, To Save America offers concrete strategies for dismantling the machine and replacing it with policies and institutions that work. But we must act fast, Gingrich warns, or our children will inherit a secular, socialist America transformed beyond recognition.
