THE VILLAGES, Fla. — Everyone wants to create jobs. Candidates and politicians propose a mix of tax breaks, government assistance, new legislation and so forth. But for Newt Gingrich, there’s a much easier magical formula: just defeat President Barack Obama.
Gingrich held a large outdoor rally Sunday at the retirement community The Villages, attracting die-hard supporters, undecided Republicans and members of the community who simply decided to see what all the commotion was about as they were walking their dogs or going to lunch.
He laid out a startlingly simple plan to create new jobs, saying it would happen as soon as Obama is defeated — as soon as on election night itself.
