One of the men who would be your president, 2012 wannabe, and pretender to seriousness, Republican Asshat, Newt Gingrich weighs in on unemployment compensation during a speech to GOP activists:
I'm opposed to giving people money for doing nothing.
And Rachel Maddow strikes back at the hypocritical and pathetic, 2012 wannabe, Newt Gingrich:
Let is review for just a second how Newt Gingrich makes his money,
For starters, he hands out fake awards in exchange for cash. Newt Gingrich makes money right now running a fake awards for small businesses scam. Last year he tried to give one of his fake awards to a small business called The Lodge in Dallas, Texas. In exchange for a $5,000 donation, Gingrich offered The Lodge, a strip club, a certificate, a novelty gavel and a dinner with him. When Mr. Gingrich realized he was giving one of his fake awards -- for a $5,000 donation -- to a strip club he decided to rescind the award and the dinner invitation. In mid-December, Gingrich sent another letter to The Lodge and asked them for a $2,000 donation to his American Solutions organization. This is how Newt Gingrich makes his money but he doesn't think that you earned yours.
Newt Gingrich is a direct mail scam artist. He hires the analog equivalent of spammers to troll the Yellow Pages, looking for businesses he can fool into thinking they are winning a 'Newt award,' and then he cons money out of them for accepting it.
