If you missed the Republican debate in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, you missed a four-and-a-half-minute exchange that pollster Frank Luntz said was “unprecedented” in his 20 years of debates. The exchange between Newt Gingrich and Fox News moderator Juan Williams is “as delicious as Tebow’s game-winner a week ago.”
[T]his is more than just a great debate moment. This should be a moment of instruction for the GOP primary voter and for Newt himself. This is how you win elections. This is how you win arguments. This is how you handle the national conversation. You express the conservative vision for America without apology and with boldness, and you do not buy into a single liberal premise while doing so. You play offense, not defense. And you don’t slam capitalism.
