Barack Obama's State of the Union speech last night centered on "winning the future," a mindless incantation that means nothing and actually sprang from the mind of Newt Gingrich, America's greatest simpleton.

Gingrich "wrote" a "book" called Winning the Future: A 21st Century Contract With America in 2005. It was about Ronald Reagan and how "without God, America ceases to be America, which is why leftists are so keen on banishing your Creator" and other scams.

What more is there to say? When Barack Obama wants to write an hollow, sloganeering, speech that won't get him in trouble and will be digestible by idiots, he turns to the best. Amateurs borrow, artists steal.
