Scene: Mitt Romney and family standing in front of a very nice, large, expensive house with American flag waving in the breeze.
I'm Mitt Romney and I'm a successful businessman. In fact, while my Republican opponents and the left's class warfare machine want to hold it against me that I've earned more money than any of the other candidates, it's something I can't and won't apologize for.
Those who focus on my tax returns, trying to figure out how to turn my business success into political failure, completely miss the point.
Speaker Gingrich's earnings, much of which like our current president's earnings comes from book sales, are largely the result of self-promotion. And while there's nothing wrong with that, the handful of people he employs hardly speaks to a broader understanding of the real-world economy. Furthermore, Mr. Gingrich's past earnings have, also like our current president, included more than a million dollars eventually taken from taxpayers.
Cut to scene: A street of homes with foreclosure signs in front of them
To be fair, Mr. Gingrich apparently did not recognize the national disaster his "client" was about to inflict on homeowners across the nation, (Cut to image: Newt Gingrich reading something that looks like a history book) but then a "historian" should have known the inevitable outcome of government trying to buy homeowners' votes without regard to economic consequences.
