Newt Gingrich’s new book takes vicious aim at the Obama administration, opining, “The secular socialist machine represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did.” Chris Wallace challenged this hyperbole on Fox News Sunday:
Wallace: You also write this on the screen: “The secular socialist machine represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did.” Mr. Speaker, respectfully, isn’t that wildly over the top?
Gingrich: No, not if by America you mean….Just listen to President Obama’s language. He gets to decide who earns how much. He gets to decide when it’s too much.
Wallace: We’re not talking about any company. We’re talking about companies that the government has put billions of dollars in…
Gingrich: No, no..he has said publicly and generically. Some Americans earn too much. So now he’s going to decide that?
Wallace:No, he’s not. He has said that some Americans earn too much.
