THE $64,000 QUESTION

Posted in Quick Hits on September 25th, 2012 by Ed

Thank god I have such a weirdly specific memory that hoards unimportant pieces of information. Otherwise I might not have remembered Newt Gingrich getting all self righteous and faux outraged like only a true conservative blowhard can over rhetoric about "the 99%" in November of last year.

I repudiate, and I call on (President Obama) to repudiate, the concept of the 99 and the 1. It is un-American, it is divisive, it is historically false. You are not going to get job creation when you engage in class warfare because you have to attack the very people you hope will create jobs.

Here's a video if for some reason you desire to hear Newt Gingrich's voice:

Two quick questions.

First, is Gingrich still supporting the guy who wrote off 47% of the country as useless parasites on the heroic Producer class?

Second, can you recall or find a single instance of anyone in the media referring to Romney's comment as "class warfare"?

I guess it's only class warfare when there is a proposed reduction in the amount that the asses of the wealthy are kissed.
