Video: Gingrich wonders whether Piers Morgan belongs to the Mantra Club

posted at 9:21 am on August 14, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Even those of us who couldn’t quite bring ourselves to back Newt Gingrich in the primaries hoped that he would play a big role in the general election as a surrogate. This video demonstrates why. Gingrich reacts to Piers Morgan’s suggestion that the “big flaw” in Ryan’s budget was that the rich would do well, and in two minutes teaches Economics 101, accuses Morgan of media bias, and rips the Obama economy as the “worst recovery in 75 years.” And that’s just Newt getting warmed up, as Newsbusters highlights:

PIERS MORGAN, HOST: I suppose the fundamental debate that’s going to be had, though, will come down to whether the Republicans can sell to the American people that they are really concerned about jobs, about people’s livelihoods, and all the rest of it. If they’re also scratching the backs of their rich and wealthy members, which is clearly I think the flaw in the Ryan plan is that it just does. I mean, if you’re very wealthy, you’re going to be doing a lot better out of Paul Ryan than you would out of Barack Obama who believes fundamentally the rich should pay more tax.

NEWT GINGRICH: You know, I don’t want to sound disrespectful, but I do wonder sometimes if you guys all get off in a little club and learn a brand new mantra and then all repeat it mindlessly. The fact is, these kinds of things were said about Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan’s tax cut – which was developed by Jack Kemp who Paul Ryan worked for – Ronald Reagan’s tax cut raised more people to middle class status, took more people out of poverty, created more jobs.

You know, this is the core thing that liberals don’t get. If you want to have jobs, you have to encourage job creators. If you discourage job creators, if you engage in class warfare, if you do what Barack Obama’s been doing, you have what we currently have. This is the worst recovery in 75 years.

Now, nobody in the media seems to want to come to grips with the fact that the Obama economic policy is a disaster for the poor. Look at the unemployment rate for black teenagers. Look at the unemployment rate for Latino teenagers. At what point do we hold the president accountable for a policy which is crippling the poor in America by crushing the economy under big government?

Ryan and Romney represent a different approach. And I think there’s this mantra you guys almost sound like you’re an extension of the Obama campaign. The Ryan/Romney plan empowers middle class Americans to get a job. When they get a job, their income goes up. They pay more taxes. They are independent. They’re able to live their own lives.

Obama worries about student loans. None of those students are going to get any jobs under Obama. Ryan and Romney are worried about getting jobs for those students so they can pay off the Obama loans.

I think this is a fundamentally different model, and I know everybody in the media wants to rush down and narrow it down to one point. So I’m going to rush down and narrow it down to one point: how long are we going to tolerate a president who makes the poorest Americans more unemployed, who pushes more poor Americans on to food stamps, and who eliminates hope for minorities? And that’s the Barack Obama record after four years.

Barack Obama loves the poor. That’s why he’s making so many more Americans poorer through his policies.

The basic argument comes down to this: Do you believe private enterprise or government creates jobs? Obama thinks it’s the latter, and his policies have followed that principle since the beginning of February 2009 and his stimulus bill. Has that worked? We have had the weakest post-WWII recovery (that’s a fact, not an opinion) and the worst job-creation environment in decades. The truth is that government doesn’t drive job creation, but it sure can strangle it — and that’s precisely what we’ve seen. If we want to put people back to work, we need to get capital engaged in private-sector growth, not seize it for more public-sector social engineering.

The Mantra Club — that sounds like a pretty good description for the national media regarding Paul Ryan and his budget, although with a few notable exceptions. Didn’t the Mantra Club have a hit back in the 80s?

My bad — that was the Escape Club, a one-hit wonder.  The Mantra Club is a one-note wonder.

fishy – actually they have been brewing Schlitz for awhile and just within the last year went back to the orginal recipe. In the 60s as the brewerys were all trying to grab all the customers they could and as the industry was consolidating often times the formulas for their brews were “softened” I guess I would call it. Try to make the taste less distinctive. Obviously with the craft beer explosion Americans are asking for more – and the big brewers are going back to the old original formulas that made those big beer brands so popular in the first place.

Check it out – it isn’t bad, it has a flavor much more distinctive than you remember. Hamms as well. Just fun to taste the old beers as they once tasted. Clearly an American take on beer – have to served cold, but with a sharp distinctive aftertaste.

Ann Romney would be a breath of fresh air.

Romney needs to fire Eric Fehrnstrom, Andrea Saul, etc.. and get people who have as much passion, intelligence and fire as Newt.

milcus on August 14, 2012 at 10:03 AM

Agreed. To which I would add that breadth of knowledge, understanding of history beyond that of their own lifetimes, and experience add to the wisdom in the selection of a president and platform.

onlineanalyst on August 14, 2012 at 10:33 AM

We won’t really know the impact of the Ryan selection until Thursday when the 3-day rolling average tends to have a more accurate representation of Republicans. The fact that Mitt’s maintained a 3-point edge with Saturday and Sunday included is a good sign though.

Doughboy on August 14, 2012 at 9:59 AM

Rasmussen noted today’s result reflects polling after the Ryan’s selection. I think Ryan’s selection may not have moved the numbers, but it increases enthusiasm.

The 6% that still remains undecided probably would not move in the near future if they have not make up their minds by now. They want more “show me” and would not decide on their votes until after the debates. But they probably will break more to challenger,if they are undecided after watching Barry for 3 1/2 years. They probably just want to know more about Romney.

I will say this for him: He didn’t start yelling over Newt’s point, like they do whenever they let a republican on MSNBS.

Michelle Obama is not an athlete, she has never been an athlete BUT she is going to lecture athletes on how to eat.

Typical Progressive.

This is the single most important rule for the REPUBLICAN PARTY moving forward. DECLARE WAR on the media. I don’t give a sh*t what any panzy azz party insider claims. When is our Party going to call these people out???

NEWT GINGRICH understands this, which is why I supported him in the Primaries…

ToddPA on August 14, 2012 at 9:38 AM

I was a Newt supporter in the primaries as well.

Team Romney needs to utilize Newt’s experience in this capacity immediately. We need to put an end to this media BS and develop some kind of long-term plan to neuter their influence so that they are not taken any more seriously than the Weekly World News and their stories of alien hamsters in pet stores. I want them to be so thoroughly humiliated and disgraced that when they look at themselves in the mirror, they will be terrified to open their mouths.

Obama has his utopian vision he wants to impose on the country. It’s been, and will be, a disaster.

Paul-Cincy on August 14, 2012 at 9:47 AM

One of the things that should be obvious after four years of BHO is that much of what he is doing is intentional. Why the GOP shies away from this is a sop to low information “independents”.

Obama’s vision is dystopian, not utopian.

Ask yourself, “If I wanted to take America down a notch or two in all sectors, what would I do differently from what Obama has done?”

Difficultas_Est_Imperium on August 14, 2012 at 10:50 AM

Americans are more and more aware that another four years of Obama means not “shared prosperity” (code for redistribution of wealth) but shared impoverishment.

so-notbuyingit on August 14, 2012 at 10:55 AM

I fully supported Newt to be the GOP nominee for President. I was a Gingrich Delegate listed as such on my state’s Board of Elections website. One thing I am sure of is that my support of Newt will look better and better as time passes. As Nancy Reagan said, Ronald Reagan passed the torch to Newt. Video clips such as shown here should tell you that.

I have had my doubts about Romney, but the Ryan pick for VP is the right one.

piers very rarely interrupts his guests, in that he is more like Larry King…his show format allows him to listen too, (compare that to the hysteria fests at MSNBC – mad cow, larry o’donnel, matthews, etc) …i saw him interrupting a guest a couple of times maybe and I also think once ge was quite irritated with one of his guests, but I don’t remember who that was, am sure the topic was gun ban…

UltimateBob on August 14, 2012 at 11:02 AM

The ‘mantra club’ requires no thought, just the ability to regurgitate DNC / Obama Talking Points on cue. The problem comes when you start asking them questions. Answering a question requires the ability to think.

GarandFan on August 14, 2012 at 11:06 AM

You know, this is the core thing that liberals don’t get. If you want to have jobs, you have to encourage job creators.

Newt did an excellent job here. But I have one minor nit pick: I wish people would stop using the word “liberal” when referring to the extreme left.

Barack 0bama and the modern Democratic party are not “liberals.” They are extreme leftists, and need to be labeled as such at every opportunity.

Short answer is apparently NEVER! There is nothing that can convince his most ardent supporters that he is to blame for anything. It’s all George W. Bush and that ‘do nothing’ congress. End of story, don’t bother with facts and figures…la la la…I can’t hear you.

I just hope these folks make it out to the voting booth on Nov 7 and do their country proud.

Then she even bothers to interject when a young woman dares have an Egg McMuffin after years of training for the Olympic Gold? It is rank hypocrisy.

Happy Nomad on August 14, 2012 at 11:19 AM

@ ToddPA

Understand your point, just disagree with the focus.

Republicans cannot afford to “declare war” on the media – at least, not in the sense that so many on our side would like to see it done.

The biggest communication problem our side has (IMO) is the tendency to accept the premise of lefty questions. Even if we give a solid conservative answer, the fact we accepted the premise validates it in the mind of the audience. Jack Kemp did that in the VP debate in 1996 when he didn’t reject Gore’s smarmy “praise” for his civil rights view,s compassion, etc. (all offered to imply that Kemp was somehow exceptional in this, that neither his running mate nor his party shared those views).

Our job is to refuse to accept false premises, explain briefly why they’re false, address the real issue and do all this with smiles on our faces.

Maybe Morgan doesn’t care much who wins, but he knows ongoing high-level political fighting with libs and conservatives sharing power will make his show more interesting (and easier). Kind of the “put bugs in jar and shake to see if they fight” philosophy.

I think even Morgan can see that four more years of Obama combined with Europe’s slide to complete socialism will make for a very dull, depressing and uninteresting world.

See, my strategy has long been that you refer to the Democratic Party as “your party” and “you guys”, “your candidate”, “your guy” and make no bones about how I would feel that I’m being interviewed by the opposition and not by some “journalist”.

The thing is that opposition shouldn’t have to be strident and uncivil. Conveying a genuine conviction about their bias should do the bulk of the work.

I know everybody in the media wants to rush down and narrow it down to one point. So I’m going to rush down and narrow it down to one point: how long are we going to tolerate a president who makes the poorest Americans more unemployed, who pushes more poor Americans on to food stamps, and who eliminates hope for minorities? And that’s the Barack Obama record after four years.

Newt always could deliver the effective spank down.

He just wiped the media screen with Piers Morgan.

Lefties will invite him on shows to test him on this or that quote, many which he originated. Doesn’t matter to Newt, the spin Meister. He can twist what he’s already said to mean what he’s saying presently. Ah, the smell of revisionism in the evening.

Our job is to refuse to accept false premises, explain briefly why they’re false, address the real issue and do all this with smiles on our faces.

I saw only bits of the primary debates (I don’t have a TV) but I saw Newt doing exactly that. He was polite, but I didn’t notice a smile ;-)

That’s one of the reasons I supported Newt for the nomination.

I hope Mitt finds a prominent place for Newt in his new administration (I’m an optimist).

And BTW, Sununu is another winner.

Unless he bought Blatz or Schlitz, thereby the Romney supporter was spared.
