He’s not saying this to say they’re inherently lazy or “bad people”, he’s (correctly) saying that due to the welfare society, fatherlessness, etc...that they don’t know anything else. They don’t see successful people to look up to.
Granted, he’s broken a few rules on the “list of things you can’t say in public” a few times, and so far, his numbers continue to improve.
Yes that headline is a typical MSM distortion. I'm not a Gingrich supporter, but it's very disappointing to see Freepers repeating the MSM's calumnies.
And BTW Gingrich is right - there isn't a culture of work in the 'hood.
And I find that very refreshing, finally someone who will dare to say what is on all our minds, get it out there front and center and deal with the problem. We need more Welfare Reform.
He is not saying they are Lazy, just they have no positive influence, and he is absolutely correct. Not that should really matter, if one is a self starter and REALLY wanted to improve themselves, but for most of them, it is a way of life and they are afraid of their "peers" (yuk), to make the change.
