Mitt Romney new best friend, former adversary Newt Gingrich is on “Meet the Press” trashing Obama, saying the president “picking a fight on the economy” is a recipe for disaster. He also added that he is the worst president on job creation since the Great Depression. President Obama is a hypocrite, in my view, for being in bed with the same private equity groups he has been assailing. Gingrich says Obama can’t fight over debt because he has created more debt and can’t fight over jobs because he hasn’t created any. Damn, that’s a slap but it rings hollow coming from someone who attacked Mitt Romney mercilessly on the campaign trail.
Gov. Romney drove up the largest per capita debt of any state in the U.S. His record isn’t a record of increasing private job creation, but the opposite, that’s according to the Democratic surrogate, Gov. Martin O’Malley. David Gregory reminded Newt Gingrich of his statement that his tenure at Bain Capital was a character issue. Um, Gingrich is dancing around that. He’s a less credible surrogate for Mitt Romney as Ron Paul would ever be.
Newt Gingrich claims Mitt Romney will get 40% of the Hispanic vote, as George W. Bush did, because Hispanics are more concerned about jobs, housing and education, not immigration. That’s a very bold prediction that won’t come to fruition, unless Obama absolutely bombs over the next few months. He also said Mitt Romney has a bold plan for educating poor blacks, Latinos and whites.
Gov. Martin O’Malley said Obama has created more jobs in less than four years than George W. Bush did in eight years.
