Interesting Quote: Newt Gingrich

What the president said, in a sense, is disgraceful. It’s not a question of who that young man looked like. Any young American of any ethnic background should be safe, period. We should all be horrified no matter what the ethnic background.

Is the president suggesting that if it had been a white who had been shot, that would be OK because it didn’t look like him. That’s just nonsense dividing this country up. It is a tragedy this young man was shot. It would have been a tragedy if he had been Puerto Rican or Cuban or if he had been white or if he had been Asian American of if he’d been a Native American. At some point, we ought to talk about being Americans. When things go wrong to an American, it is sad for all Americans. Trying to turn it into a racial issue is fundamentally wrong. I really find it appalling.

Newt on Obama's statement about Trayvon Martin

This blowhard knows just how to turn a statement around to rile up his idiotic, ignorant and racist base.

What a fucking idiot!!! Are you really surprised that nonsense came out of this fool's mouth?!?

I am honestly surprised that Newt was even aware of this issue. I am even more shocked that he is somewhat sympathetic, in his own twisted manner. However, to deny the fact that this tragedy isn't the epitome of racial profiling and therefore, racist, is indicative of his ongoing insensitivity. He just doesn't get it.

Leave it to Newtons to make not being racist sound racist!

How does empathy equal hate? I find Captain Crunch and Mr. Fecal Matter disgusting. Obama is under attack for the evil minded who wants a race war.

OBAMA 2012!!!!

I can't decide if he is profoundly ignorant or just a profoundly idiotic.
