I had to leave my office this morning before this video was available. Couldn’t wait to get home and post it. In the CNBC debate last night, Newt Gingrich had the hands-down best response of the night, perhaps of any debate anywhere. Jim Kramer asked him about Occupy Wall Street, and Newt, along with numerous points, called out the media’s inability to report history and the economy accurately. Maria Bartiromo follows up and, unfortunately, she asks this:
BARTIROMO: Mr. Speaker — I’m sorry, but what is the media reporting inaccurately about the economy?
BARTIROMO: What is the media reporting inaccurately about the economy?
GINGRICH: I love humor disguised as a question. That’s terrific. I have yet to hear a single reporter ask a single Occupy Wall Street person a single rational question about the economy that would lead them to say, for example, “Who is going to pay for the park you are occupying if there are no businesses making a profit?”
It was the premier put-down of all well-deserved press put-downs, shaming the Left for their lies and their lies of omission. Sad that we couldn’t see her face as he was making her look like the arrogant fool she was.
