Newt Gingrich Hammers Jimmy Carter for Claiming Most Opposition to Obama is Because He is a "Black Man" - Video 9/15/09
Here is video of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on with Sean Hannity tonight, where he blasted former President Jimmy Carter for saying in an interview today that most opposition to President Obama is because "he is a black man." Gingrich said it is "destructive for America to suggest you cannot criticize the President without it being a racial act."
Gingrich made an outstanding point by saying liberals can't believe anyone honestly disagrees with you - it's a sort of a "secular religion" - so you assume there is some kind of deeper motivation. They just won't accept that there are good, honest people who simply believe in smaller government and free market principles.
He also commented on the ACORN Scandal, and called for a "very careful audit" of all Federal Funds given to ACORN over the past five years.
Gingrich called the Democrats censure of Joe Wilson today a "sad moment" of "pure politics" that should not have been done.
Gingrich said it will be "catastrophic" for the Democrats if they force through a Health Care Bill in the Senate using the "Reconciliation Process" (Nuclear Option). That's because it is intended only for spending bills, and Gingrich said the Democrats would have to ignore so many points of order in using that process that it would be obvious to everyone what a terrible misuse of the system it is.
