The Future, Not the Past

The media’s questions about Newt Gingrich’s past dealings with Freddie Mac obviously constitute a liberal attack against the latest “hot” Republican conservative. They made not a peep when Rahm Emanuel did the same thing. What Newt did was perfectly legal, and what many other Washington pols have done and are doing.

I’m not happy about it, but this election is about Barack Obama’s wretched stewardship of the Oval Office and about the future of this country. The only questions we ought to be asking are whether Gingrich can beat him, whether he can be trusted now, and what he plans to do to turn America around. If Newt is as smart as he thinks he is, he will be prepared to dispatch this latest kerfuffle–with alacrity. If he’s not, we will learn something valuable.
