  •  In Newt's world, like in any Right Wing fact free (6+ / 0-)

    zone of stupidity, what he said wasn't racism.  Any "racism" would be the criticism he receives for making the comment. The quotes are deliberate, because in RW world, the only recognizable racism that exists is anything that limits Whites from saying and doing whatever they want to say and do to minorities.

    That there may be causes for African-American unemployment other than "Blacks are lazy" or for African-Americans dying younger than White Americans that isn't the fault of AA's does not even enter his over fed, over privileged White man's mind.

    Newt doesn't see himself as a racist because his racism is so deeply ingrained into his DNA as to be inseperable from all his other loathsome crack pot ideas.

    “Tax and Spend” I can understand. I can even understand “Borrow and Spend”. But “Borrow and Give Tax Cuts to Billionaires”? That I have a problem with.
