Gingrich: Subway-Loving City Dwellers Have Ruined America!

GingrichBaloney.jpg
Did you know that you're an unpatriotic prick if you ride the subway, rent a high-rise apartment, or work for a newspaper (read: live in New York)?

Newt Gingrich, who wants to be the president(!), apparently thinks so, and had no problem making public his seeming hatred of urbanites at a recent National Association of Home Builders meeting in South Carolina, according to the Wall Street Journal (via Wonkette).

There, he tried to court suburban voters by speaking out against policies that might make home ownership more difficult. He also took the opportunity to lash out against city dwellers, who he alleges are on an "anti-home" ticket.

"Those who, you know, live in high-rise apartment buildings writing for fancy newspapers in the middle of town after they ride the metro, who don't understand that for most Americans the ability to buy a home, to have their own property, to have a sense of belonging is one of the greatest achievements of their life, and it makes them feel like they are good solid citizens."

No, Mr. Gingrich, we don't understand: how many people who work at a newspaper can really afford to live in a high rise?

A commentary from a fat fart who dumped his first wife Jackie while she was recovering from cancer. Then king scum-bag  dumps his second wife when she is diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. And he had the balls to get into President Bill Clintons face while he, Newt was doing the same thing. Well at 78 years old. All I'll say is men will be men. I'm not saying that a man that cheats on his wife is agood man or is a noble man or has any high moral  qualities. On the contrary a man who cheats on 2 sick wifes is not ethical. But is also a real scumbag. And any one who would think of trusting some one like this has something seriously wrong with thier ability to determine a really civil humanbeing. Or maybe my grandmother was right. Birds of a feather  tend to flock together?  Thank-you grandma for all your wise saying that still hold true to this very day. Grandma never guided me wrong. Ever!

You know the truth about people like these hate-mongars, they feel unsatisfied with themselve, so they have to come up with some repugnat critical contemplation of others to delude themselves of thier shortcomings. What sad and poor mental-indigences! Maybe one day they may find some true viable merits and truely GOD like qualities. Instead of this foul hate-mongering that they capitalize and profit from. They have done so much damage to our Great Country, The founding father's said the real enemy was with in. And they said it was the politacal paties. The GOP took AMERICA'S greatness and gave it to China!
