Gingrich tells massive crowd in Floria businesses will start creating jobs on election night after Obama is defeated.
Huffington Post reported:
Everyone wants to create jobs. Candidates and politicians propose a mix of tax breaks, government assistance, new legislation and so forth. But for Newt Gingrich, there’s a much easier magical formula: just defeat President Barack Obama.
Gingrich held a large outdoor rally Sunday at the retirement community The Villages, attracting die-hard supporters, undecided Republicans and members of the community who simply decided to see what all the commotion was about as they were walking their dogs or going to lunch.
He laid out a startlingly simple plan to create new jobs, saying it would happen as soon as Obama is defeated — as soon as on election night itself.
“People say to me, ‘How fast will things turn around?’ Let’s talk about jobs. How quickly will people start to invest in new jobs? Late on election night when we defeat Barack Obama, people will start making decisions to create new jobs,” he said.
Gingrich is increasingly taking on the Republican establishment, upset at the attacks he has weathered in recent days from backers of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, whose surrogates are attempting to “portray the former speaker as erratic.”
He continued that theme on Sunday, going hard after Wall Street and the “establishment in this country” — no doubt an attack at Romney.
A thousand supporters came out to see Mitt Romney in Florida this weekend.
