Gingrich: Detroit or Texas

Despite his chatter about "citizenship" driving his thirst for the presidency, Newt Gingrich can still be awfully effective, and he was in his interview with Sean Hannity last night.

He's at his best when he presents clear choices in spare language.

"Left-wing policies don't work.

If you look at the collapse of Detroit or the rise of Texas, and you say to yourself 'which would you like better: the state that had the most job creation in America over the last ten years or a city which has collapsed?'

I know, by talking with Governor Rick Perry and others, I know how to get the whole country to resemble Texas. President Obama knows how to get the whole country to resemble Detroit."
