Newt's Magic Jobs Machine

The Villages, Florida: Newt Gingrich makes a bold prediction.

"People say to me, 'How fast will things turn around?' Let's talk about jobs. How quickly will people start to invest in new jobs? Late on election night when we defeat Barack Obama, people will start making decisions to create new jobs," he said.

The magic job machine will turn on the night Fox News declares Newt Gingrich the winner. Gingrich fails to provide details about how this will happen. Benjamin Kirby noted that Gingrich did not provide details about how he would create a moon colony by the end of his second term. For someone who portrays him as a intellectual, Gingrich has an allergic reaction to all things policy wonk.

Gingrich is publicly saying that businesses are intentionally not creating jobs so he can get get elected. If that is the case, shouldn't Newt the Populist be calling out corporations for withholding jobs? Of course, this is the same Newt Gingrich that said this about the Occupy Wall Street movement.

"This is a pretty good symptom of how much the left has collapsed as a moral system in this country, and why you need to reassert something by saying to them, 'Go get a job right after you take a bath.'"

How dare people protest Wall Street. Which make it all the more hysterical that Gingrich said this at the Villages.

I do not believe Wall Street can give enough money to run enough negative ads to hide from the truth. The truth is we have been served badly, as the American people, by the establishment in this country in both parties. Let's be clear about it. In both parties! And it's time someone stood up for hard-working, tax-paying Americans and said, 'Enough!' And if that makes the old order uncomfortable, my answer is: Good!

Suddenly, Gingrich is Woody Guthrie. If Gingrich wins the nomination he will travel to New York City and beg hedge fund managers for campaign contributions. That is what corporatist Republicans always do.
