Newt’s Time to Shine

Hope and change was the mantra used by Barack Obama in 2008. After two terms of international conflict and an economy that slowed and then plummeted, the timing was right for those messages. Now, after four more stagnant years, with America’s position on the world scene no better than when President George W. Bush left office, the timing is once again ripe for a “change” election. Except this time, it’s up to a Republican to make the case.

President Obama can’t run on the platitudes that got him elected in 2008. He can’t call for change, because that would mean he’d be out of a job. Thus he will be forced to ask for more time — four more years, to be exact — to deliver the hope he promised. And he will have no choice but to go from running the rosiest campaign in recent memory to what could be, some are speculating, the nastiest, most negative campaign in U.S. history.

In fact, it’s already starting. His speech in Osawatomie, Kan., on Tuesday was intended to echo the populist Teddy Roosevelt but, to many liberals’ delight, wound up sounding a lot more like FDR, eager to foist his New Deal on the nation. “This country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, when everyone does their fair share and when everyone plays by the same rules,” Obama said.
