On Newt Gingrich

"Gingrich is a really smart guy and..."
Commenter "Okami" at Turton's place.

My opinion? Gingrich has not, to my knowledge, had a single serious and substantive word to say about monetary reform. Gingrich has shown no ambition beyond implementing mere managerial improvements to the Left's programs. Gingrich may be lauded as an "historian", or a "raconteur", or "a really smart guy" or whatever else in the right-wing press, but this will not change the fact that Gingrich does not grasp the ethical root of the problem.

Ron Paul has a vague idea, but Ron Paul is a ridiculous, tired old man who can barely mumble his way through a list of half-forgotten libertarian talking points.
