Gingrich ignores Obama's "a Muslim" comment

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57402072-503544/gingrich-ignores-obamas-a-muslim-comment/?tag=re1.channel

(CBS News) LAKE CHARLES, La. - After a Louisiana voter today called President Obama a Muslim during a question-and-answer session at a campaign stop, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich chose to ignore the comment rather than correct the misstatement.

After speaking to an overflow crowd of over 200 people at the Harlequin Steaks and Seafood Restaurant, Gingrich opened the event to questions. A local man, Bob Nolan, of Lake Charles, began by making a comment about the president.

"I believe that Obama is not stupid," Nolan said to Gingrich. "I believe he knows exactly how the economy works, but I also believe that number one, he's a Muslim. Number two, he's a student of Saul Alinsky ... and I believe that it's his policy to bring this country to its knees and ruin the United States of America." Another man chimed in, "I believe that, too."

Gingrich paused for a brief moment before he answered, "I believe this is a president who prefers power to prosperity and who follows policies that centralize power in the government. And if the price of that is that we're poorer and we have fewer jobs and that we have less energy, that's fine with him. It's a price he'll pay. "

1. They're a bunch of morons.

 

The idea that President Obama is intentionally trying to destroy the country is ludicrous.

3. I'll bet none of them even know who Allinsky was.

 

They just parrot the name. Ignorance all around.

Sir, he counts on them!

Besides, if he provided an example how something they believed was horseshit, they might go on to find out how much of everything else they believed was horseshit. And then where would Newt be?

6. Anyone who "actually" knows who Saul Alinsky is

could not be so stupid as to "actually" believe Obama is a Muslim.

8. Gingrich is a POS of the worst kind.

At least McCain made the attempt to correct the lies. I know a lot of people here don't like McCain and that's okay, but he earned a bit of respect from me for the attempt.

Gingrich won't do it.

9. Ewwww!! I was in Lake Charles once and ate at that restaurant!

Good food, but now that I know Gingrich has been there, I'll never be able to eat there again!! Just the thought of knowing he was in that same building sickens me!!

10. Amazing how easy it is to get the freepers into a psychotic episode using trigger words.

The Muse came to me, so I was inspired to reply in the form of a rage comic...
