Newt: “Offer A Better Solution”

by David Winston

Echoing the argument expressed by David Winston in his piece in Roll Call from December 15th, former Speaker Newt Gingrich called for the RNC to support the President-elect when he is right and to “offer a better solution, instead of just opposing him” when he is wrong.   This letter comes as a response to a controversial RNC web advertisement that links Obama with the Blagojevich scandal in Illinois.  

The idea that the Republican Party can rebuild a favorable brand while engaging in attacks that are out of step with the real concerns of Americas is an idea that both Winston and now Gingrich say undermines the ability of the GOP to rebuild.
