Newt Gingrich’s response to a question from CNN’s Piers Morgan on the Bain Capital brewhaha:
“ I'm very surprised that President Obama went down this road.”
Of course, Gingrich is nothing if not a hypocritical skanky slug, and notedly, Gingrich himself persistently attacked Mitt Romney’s affiliation with Bain Capial during the primaries. In fact, a pro-Gingrich PAC made a haunting video which highlighted Bain’s egregious disregard for actual people as opposed to money.
And, you might remember Gingrich making remarks such as the remark quoted below regarding Romney and Bain Capital:
“Those of us who believe in free markets and those of us who believe that, in fact, the whole goals of investment is entrepreneurship and job creation, would find it pretty hard to justify rich people figuring out clever, legal ways to loot out a company.”
Hell, there are plenty of hypocrites to go around when it comes to the Bain Capital controversy, but President Obama isn’t one of those hypocrites.
