Why Newt Gingrich Will Not Be America's Next President

It's always just a matter of time before presidential candidates put their foots in their mouths and say something insensitive, or just plain stupid.

Gingrich's contract 'against' America's poor.
This time, it was Newt Gingrich's turn (again).  Thankfully, someone on the national level spoke out.  (We need more like that).

Gingrich spoke in Iowa recently, and his remarks about the most vulnerable of our society are deplorable, proving Newt is as far removed from the American populous as a repeat adulterer is from a sex addiction clinic.

Gingrich claims poor children have no work habits unless it's "illegal."

They have no habit of ‘I do this and you give me cash’ unless it’s illegal", he said.

(As if working in Congress has yielded no illegal activity among its own 'employed' members).

He further thrusted his foot in his mouth when he said that poor children "have no role model to show them the habits of work."

"Really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works, so they literally have no habit of showing up on Monday. They have no habit of staying all day", were the words this man spoke.

When was the last time Newt spent time with poor families and their children?  Probably not at all. Yet he claims to have all this knowledge about 'poor families', and 'poor children'.

Clearly, Newt has no clue that poor families are some of the hardest working families in America.  They work the longest hours, for the least amount of money.  And get this:  They actually install morals and values in their children, something judging by Gingrich's remarks, was totally lacking in his own upbringing.

Sorrowfully, (or should we say, 'tellingly') this is the human being that Herman Cain has endorsed for the presidency of the United States.

But as the saying goes, 'birds of a feather, do flock together'.
