I watched Newt’s victory speech live. He took us on one of the flattest roller coaster rides I’ve ever been on.
Next time just thank those who helped you Newt, followed by what you will fix in DC. Then mercifully end your victory lap with the guaranteed crescendo, “On to Florida!” Or whatever primary is next.
Fox political analyst Pat Caddell said that Newt’s speech was 10 minutes too long. I think it was more like 12-15 minutes too long.
Newt needs to learn how to build emotional momentum and how not to suck the emotional excitement out of his political balloon.
