OK, that’s the red meat line but honestly, the entire interview is worth every second. From CNBC’s Larry Kudlow program. Unless you are a committed ideologue, it is hard not to like this man as he covers every issue from global warming to medicare.
Even better he outlines his accomplishments which are many. Watch my little mobsters and you tell me … Romney or Gingrich in the ring with Obama.
The H/T goes to Real Clear Politics on this one. Yes he believes government plays a role in the economy, but then so did my hero, Alexander Hamilton. Enjoy.
The money line starts at 4:30 and the rest just as much fun. Transcript from RCP:
“This is going to be the finest exercise in self government in your lifetime,” Gingrich said. “We’re going to have the candidate of food stamps. The finest food stamp president in American history in Barack Obama. We’re going to have a candidate of paychecks.”
“And I’m going to make a simple case. You want class warfare? Fine. You’re going to get stuck on food stamps, because it’s going to kill jobs. You want high tax rates? Fine. You’ll be stuck on food stamps because it kills jobs. You want to watch America decay and China become the leading country? It’s Obama. I want to get equality by bringing people up. He wants to get equality by bringing people down,” Gingrich said on CNBC.
