CPAC 2010 Speech Highlights: Gingrich & Beck

Following is the complete (1 hour) video of Glenn Beck's address.

Historian, author, and former U.S. House of Representatives Speaker, Newt Gingrich, spoke earlier in the day; his speech (35 minutes) titled "Principled Bipartisanship Starts at 2 + 2 = 4" can be viewed here.

Newt's, professorial demeanor lent credence to the seriousness of our Nation's political and economic dilemma and was a stark contrast to the antics of Glenn Beck, who with his ever present chalkboard, outlined the dangers of Progressivism with his, by now, well known delivery of comic gesture, grimace, and patter. Both speakers were quite effective despite their very different approaches to the plight of the U.S.A. in 2010.

Here is an audio snippet from the Gingrich speech. (MP3 2:57) and
an audio snippet from the Beck presentation. (MP3 2:26)
