Rosie O'Donnell: Newt Gingrich 'Should Read a History Book'
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2011/12/09/rosie-odonnell-newt-gingrich-should-read-history-book ^

Posted on 12/09/2011 8:38:40 AM PST by chessplayer

Rosie O'Donnell, possibly one of the most uninformed people to ever be given a television program, actually ridiculed the intellectual capacity of Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich Thursday.

Appearing with fellow brainiac Joy Behar on the HLN program thankfully in its final shows, O'Donnell called the former Speaker of the House a "joke" saying, "Perhaps he should read a history book"

JOY BEHAR, HOST: Yes, but I mean, what about Newt's plan to drop the child labor laws and put kids to work as janitors?

ROSIE O'DONNELL: Yes.

BEHAR: I mean, where does he come up with this crap?

O'DONNELL: I don't know. They tried that in Australia many years ago with aboriginal children. It didn't turn out too well. Perhaps he should read a history book. I don't know. That guy is a joke.

I guess the intellectually superior O'Donnell didn't know that Gingrich received a B.A. and an M.A. from Emory University in - wait for it! - history, and later received a Ph.D. from Tulane University in - wait for it again! - modern European history eventually becoming a - wait one last time! - history professor at West Georgia College.

She could read Newt’s next book called “Environmental Entrepreneurs” when its released after the election but I suspect it will be leaked a month or so out from the election.

Joy Beo-whore and Rosie O’donut are now the, go to, political pundits of the 2012 republican selection process

funny thing is they are not much more ridiculous than the ‘legitimate’ MSM.

“Don’t do it. Please. I know this book looks delicious with its light-weight pages sliced thin a prosciutto and swiss stacked in a way that would make Dagwood salivate. The scent of freshly baked words wafting up with every turn of the page. Mmmm page. But don’t do it. Not yet. Don’t eat this book.”

The typical left-wing narrative of Republican politicians - they are uneducated, provincial, can’t speak well - will not work on Gingrich. He will give it right back to them.

The narrative they WILL use? They will resurrect their propoganda from when he was in the House. Gingrich is “divisive, mean, pugnacious, a ‘divider’.”

Me

It was a few days ago when I was flipping thru channels and spent about 10 seconds gazing at the train wreck show. Then I went back to Speed Channel after the commercial was over.

If you’re a Republican candidate, you are either dumb or evil. Since Newt is clearly not dumb, like Nixon, he will be evil. Bore, bore, bore.

Hahahahahahah...I had forgotten that;

“I do believe that it’s the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7—building 7, which collapsed in on itself—it is impossible for a building to fall the way it fell without explosives being involved. World Trade Center 7. World Trade [Center] 1 and 2 got hit by planes—7, miraculously, the first time in history, steel was melted by fire. It is physically impossible.”

In defense of Joy and Rosie, two of the intellectual giants of our time, just because someone has degrees in history doesn’t mean they know anything about history,,,just as someone who has degrees in science doesn’t mean they know anything about science. (global warmists)

I had to look up what Newt was talking about about abandoning child labor laws..

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57335118-503544/newt-gingrich-poor-kids-dont-work-unless-its-illegal/

Turns out what he said sounds pretty darn logical.. Except to the school employee unions.

BEHAR, HOST: Yes, but I mean, what about Newt's plan to drop the child labor laws and put kids to work as janitors?

Neither did Rush play the entire interview, or what led to Newt providing his response on kids working and the infamous child-janitor clip.

The conversation involved the huge gap between the rich and poor in China, much more-so than in the US. Whereas, the Chinese workers can make a dollar a day/week [?] compared to a minimum wage in the US. Thus, children go to work to help support their impoverished families, no labor laws, no unions as in the US. I mean these celebs am sure have worn clothing by these child workers until it is widely publicized and the designer then plays all innocent and cuts ties and the poor workers lose their income.

Farm families know what work is. Kids work to help support their family as soon as they are strong enough to carry a pail of water or feed. Rush and caller even made it sound like that was in a "grandfather's time"down on the old McDonald's farm. A local sheriff once said farm family kids are not the ones he has to arrest.

Kids are known to skip class to support their family[neglect in one case] in Midcoast Maine [playground of Rich & Famous Calif Democrats] by digging blood worms in the mud flats which are then sold for bait for sports fishing, a lucrative Maine industry. I doubt this industry really regulates ages. It's a cottage industry-each worker for him or herself.

I guess it is better to starve to death or put one's hand out then do what comes natural-providing for family. In the case above, the mother was on assistance, was a prostitute, a druggy, as the grandmother; he was supporting his younger brother. You do what you gotta do.

Such morons!! Infuriates people are given Media Power by the Left to influence viewers through deception. The Far Left continue to fall below worm level each and every day. They know better, both women are street smart in where they grew up. But $$$....
