Newt Gears up for 2012


    Chatting up former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich at a small Washington reception, I realized quickly that he and I share one common denominator—the commitment to exceptionalism.

    Always the consummate politician, when it comes to morals and family values he segues seamlessly from one side of the equation to the other. But I’m not here to judge the Senator, but rather, to learn from him. We came to quick agreement on one key issue: if we want to get back to being a country of American exceptionalism, through the right policies and the right values we can create dramatically more jobs with dramatically higher incomes.
