Darkest before the dawn?

Here's a morning warm and fuzzy for you right of center folks in this election season (NOT).

GOP leaders warn of election disaster

Here's the letter from Newt that is referred to in that article. My Plea to Republicans: It's Time for Real Change to Avoid Real Disaster

Not sure his top points are my top priorities but there's definitely major overlap. Let's give the History Professor credit for laying out an easily understandable lesson plan for Congressional Republicans.

Pride goes before a fall, and a haughty spirit before defeat. Proverbs 16:18

From the sound of things NRCC leaders are about to choke on their pride this election cycle -- and leave us to reap the benefits (whirlwind) in the next Congressional Term. Unless something changes, that is.

Give Newt credit where credit is due. The man DOES know how to communicate vision.
Thank God for that. Ol' Sol also said "The people perish for lack of vision. Proverbs 29:18"

If you haven't read Gingrich's "Winning the Future: A 21st Century Contract with America." I heartily recommend it. Take or leave his arguments. As the old preacher said "Eat the chicken, leave the bones" but exercise your mind in this area. Be challenged to think about the big issues confronting America.

It's Friday, but Sunday's coming... Isn't it?
