Newt Gingrich: 'I Call On The President To Repudiate The Concept Of The 99 And The 1'

By Pat Garofalo

2012 GOP presidential contender Newt Gingrich today, during an event in South Carolina, said that he repudiates the very idea behind the Occupy Wall Street movement that the economy should work for everyone, not just the richest 1 percent and called on President Obama to do the same:

I repudiate, and I call on the President to repudiate, the concept of the 99 and the 1. It is un-American, it is divisive, it is historically falseYou are not going to get job creation when you engage in class warfare because you have to attack the very people you hope will create jobs.

Watch it:

Next, Newt will be demanding that the protesters be drug tested!

13. "It is un-American, it is divisive, it is historically false."
You mean like the Tea Party, or the GOP platform in general?

On edit ...

The Dems need to do a Newt version of the GEICO commercials.

Have a Newt that changes colors saying some of the idiotic things Newt has said.

21. When you are a 1%'er like Gingrich it hurts being called out.
C'mon, who here doesn't have a $500,000.00 revolving charge account at Tiffanys?

23. Hey Newt....
the Occupiers have already repudiated the Democrats and the Republicans. They know that the kleptocracy wont fix this mess.

Go ahead Newt, repudiate it. In fact, hey Barry, go do it too. These politicians are not the solution.

If this 16 trillion dollar law suit that's been filed ever gets legs, the whole congress and the last four Presidents are doing time...if they haven't fled the country before then.
