Newt Gingrich does not want to become the GOP nominee against President Obama next November. He doesn't. And I'm still betting that he won't be, despite his bust-out in recent GOP polling. Gingrich, as I mentioned recently, is a rhetorical jihadist. He always has been one. And that's exactly why he currently leads among the motley GOP candidates.
Quite frankly, I think that the GOP base would rather see Gingrich lose badly against Obama next fall...just so long as Newt drops a sufficient number of we-hate-the black-Democratic-President-and-all-things-progressive, jihad bombs, in the process of losing. The conservative base can't rely on Mitt Romney to carry out it's rhetorical terrorism.....Mitt is just too nice of a guy. But Newt? He's never been a nice guy...ever.
Just for fun, then....let's walk around a recent bombing site where Gingrich set off his political IED's.
'Really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and nobody around them who works,' Mr Gingrich told fundraisers Thursday night at a dinner outside Des Moines, Iowa.
'So they literally have no habit of showing up on Monday. They have no habit of staying all day. They have no habit of "I do this and you give me cash"... unless it's illegal.'
Classic Gingrich. Classic dog-whistle racism from Gingrich.
Who do you think Gingrich wanted his audience to think of when he spoke this line..."really poor children in really poor neighborhoods?" Suburban and rural white kids? Of course not. Without saying the words, Newton points directly at inner city black youth, ridiculing and castigating their parents for having no work habit and passing that lazy-assness on to their children.
Newt gives ample proof, while expressing his hatefulness towards America's inner city poor, that rhetorical jihadists don't require facts before blowing stuff up...
...there are more than 10 million low-income (earning less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level) working families in this country — representing 45 million Americans, 22 million of which are children.
Gingrich's remark is right up there with St. Ronnie's "Cadillac driving welfare queens" and those "young bucks buying T-bone steaks with their food stamps." One of the primary reasons Gingrich has soared in the polls in the last 2 weeks is because of these race-baiting types of comments. That is what the extreme element in the GOP primary base WANTS to here. So, Newt is givin' em' what they want.....no matter how ugly and hateful it all sounds.
And please take note here.....unemployment is at 8.6%, millions of Americans have lost homes, jobs and futures....and the GOP frontrunner has the winger balls to bash poor inner city kids and their parents. Proving that the grifter, even with a PHD, has no shame.
Moreover, Newt Gingrich, now the favorite of a majority of Republicans, not only resembles a jihadist with his rhetorical bomb throwing bashing the inner city poor....but he's even worse than that. Rhetorically, Newt is similar to the jihadist who sets off a bomb...waits for the rescue teams to appear....and then sets off another bomb.
It wasn't enough to simply bash inner city kids, who, allegedly have "no habits of working" because "no one around them works".....Newt had to go on to illustrate what he really meant....
“They have no habit of ‘I do this and you give me cash’… unless it’s illegal,”
According to the GOP frontrunning rhetorical bombthrower, not only do inner city youth not know how to work because no one around them works....but if those poor children, by chance, DID do any work, it involved illegality. Translation: black youth in our inner cities have no work ethic because no one around them works, and if those inner city black youth earn any money at all....it's because they are selling illegal drugs or stolen property.
That's what has made Newt Gingrich's poll numbers soar. Expressing bitter hatefulness towards lazy, shiftless minorities and poor, yet criminal, children...is exactly what excites the core conservative base. The ugliness of Newt's screed against the inner city poor is only matched by the enthusiastic response of base Republicans to it.
