Newt Gingrich says the GOP and America need another 'Contract With America'-style agenda.
Newsweek July 6 2006
NEWSWEEK: In your book, you talk about tough love for the Republican Party and say that it's time for "an intervention." What do you recommend?
Newt Gingrich: I start from the premise that we have to be prepared to face the things that aren't working and to fix them. We have to understand that the country doesn't particularly want to elect liberal Democrats, because it doesn't believe in them and in fact it finds them slightly strange. But the country has a performance problem with the Republicans right now. The more the Republicans can understand that and meet the challenge so that people can say, "Yeah I want more of that because I see you're back on track," I think the easier the '06 and '08 elections [will be].
