Juan Williams learned a very valuable lesson about what GOP candidate can be race baited and which one can't.
"blacks should demand jobs not food stamps"
Newt was 100% right, but Juan took exception to that comment and decided to use Newt's comment back at him in the debate, BAD MISTAKE!!!
It was foolish of Juan to think that a person like Newt Gingrich was going to bite his tongue on something he said, especially if he knew he was right when he said it. Newt is a very cerebral thinker. He's like me. We tend to stand our ground on something we know to be right, and we tend to provide evidence to it back up. Progressives have always been know to burn the candle of race and welfare on both ends. When people mention anything about the blacks and welfare, progressives will usually be quick to mention that
"more whites are on welfare then blacks".
That is a true statement, because there are "more whites in America then blacks based on "population". That's only one side of the candle. When Republicans talk about reforming welfare so that it doesn't become an indefinite entitlement to the recipient and robs the recipient of his or her work ethic to stand on their own two feet, then progressives claim that
"welfare reform will adversely impact blacks and minorities the hardest"
So welfare advocates play both ends of the debate to try to have their cake and eat it too. I have zero problem with what Newt said. My first job was when I was 16, I worked at McDonalds. Hell, I had to clean out the bathrooms to. I had to flip burgers etc. I hated the job, but loved pay days, because I knew I earned that money. Because I started work at a young age, I understood not only the importance of work but also how important it was to budget money even though it was a part time job. Progressives always cry about young people not having anything to do in order to stay out of trouble, it seems obvious to me that if they are working, they can't get into any trouble. Somethings are just common sense like Newt demonstrated. The media and progressives were quick to come out and try to down play Newt's reference that Obama is the "foodstamp president". They claim that Newt is wrong. The fact is that more people are on food stamps then under any other president. Progressives are praying for Romney to win the nomination, because they know that Obama can't debate Gingrich if his life depended on it.
