Gingrich Destroys Reich: ‘Every Major City Which Is A Center Of Poverty Is Run By Democrats’

Gingrich Destroys Reich: ‘Every Major City Which Is A Center Of Poverty Is Run By Democrats’

Wow. We haven’t seen this side of Newt Gingrich since the Republican primary debates of last year.

We say that it’s long overdue.

Today on This Week With George Stephanopoulos (he was missing today), former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich appeared on the weekly panel to discuss a variety of issues. One of those issues was the Pope’s recent statements on the subject of income inequality. That came up because the nearly non-existent Time Magazine named the Pope its “Man Of The Year”.

Specifically, Gingrich was asked about income inequality in New York City and if Republicans should be talking about it.

“Absolutely,” Gingrich replied. “I mean, how can you justify the level of wealth in those big towers in New York City and the level of poverty in those alleys. And, without talking about government, say ‘Surely a society that believes that every person who was endowed by their Creator with the right to pursue happiness, would come up with a better solution than 22,000 children that are homeless.'”

Gingrich went on to say that, after 50 years of the so-called “War on Paverty”, government hasn’t done a very good job. That didn’t sit too well with other (read: liberal) members of the panel, including Bill Clinton’s former Labor Secretary Robert Reich.

Reich, unsurprisingly, rattled off a bunch of left-wing talking points before getting to his awfully predictable conclusion: it’s the fault of the Republicans that the “War on Poverty” isn’t doing better.

“This is baloney,” Gingrich replied. “Every major city which is a center of poverty is run by Democrats. Every major city.”

Ouch!
