Newt Gingrich's transformation is complete. He has now "radicalized" his image so dramatically that besides his shock value speeches, the world he describes resembles something you would see in a fun house room full of mirrors.
Reducing Obama down to the racial stereotype of a black basketball player:
CBSNews: Newt Gingrich … at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference … said (Democrats) had put together a "perfect unrepresentative left-wing machine dedicated to a secular socialist future." Obama is "the most radical president in American history," Gingrich said.
"What we need is a president, not an athlete," Gingrich said during a question and answer period after his speech. "Shooting three point shots may be clever, but it doesn't put anybody to work."And just to make sure everything this "black" unqualified president did in office is wiped clean from the history books, Newt suggests:
Add a Republican president, he said, and the goal should be to "repeal every radical bill" passed by the current administration.Feeding on the growing menace of anti-government threats and home grown terrorism, Newt offered this possible strategy;
"There are more of us than there are of the government," the former House speaker said, midway through his story about Polish resistance to communism. "So why are we afraid of them?" The left, Gingrich said, wants "to be dishonest about who we are" and cast Republicans as "the party of no."And finally, Newt has no sympathy for the 4 million unemployed workers struggling to make ends meet, tossed out of their jobs by the free market, big spending, big borrowing Republicans. Hey, don't use that old "Great Recession" excuse here:
"Quite frankly, I'm tired of finding new ways to help people who aren't working, I want to find new ways to help people who are working," he said.You got it Newt. Let's forget about the jobless, and do everything we can to help the employed.
What is it about Republicans dumping on down and out jobless Americans?
