Gingrich: Work Is A “Strange, Distant Concept” To Juan Williams

Newt Gingrich stated that Barack Obama “put” more people on food stamps than any other president, instead of of considering the fact that many desperate American families, including more non-Hispanic whites than blacks, put themselves on food stamps since the 2007 recession. Gingrich also said that poor kids don’t work “unless it’s illegal.” Now Gingrich has directed the same condescending rhetoric toward Juan Williams, who questioned him about his divisive, racially charged language at the GOP debate on Monday. Watch:

Gingrich: I had a very interesting dialogue Monday night in Myrtle Beach with Juan Williams about the idea of work, which seemed to Juan Williams to be a strange, distant concept.

Perhaps for some reason Gingrich finds associating Williams with work to be a “strange, distant concept.” Regardless, Williams is a journalist, which, as far as I know, is a form of work.

I agree with Michael Reagan; Gingrich probably is the candidate most like his father. Which is precisely why I find him repulsive and unacceptable as a candidate for president. Knowing that there is no such thing as a sure-thing, I have to hope for Romney to win the republican nomination.

Yes, Romney would be the better of two unacceptable alternatives.
