Okay, so Newt said it. He's not a "citizen of the world."
So now that we find out that Reagan said it, the obvious question to ask is...
Did he just spit in the face of the man with whom many Republicans have an almost homosexual infatuation with?
Maybe not in those words, but you get the idea.
In the past, even Newt has said he's a citizen of the world.
So Keith Olberman and others now wonder how Newt can spin this so it's okay for Reagan to be a citizen of the world and not okay for Obama.
Easy, but nobody is saying it.
"Citizen of the world" is Republican code speak. It should not be interpreted as a proud part of a global family. It's code for not being a kiss ass to towel heads. Hey, I'm being blunt about this. Those are the people Newt is trying to reach with that comment. It's the same cowboy attitude Bush had when he was in office. They prefer to go it alone. They don't need help from anyone. Imagine the cranky old cripple who smacks you away because he wants to do something all on his own. That's the attitude stinking up the place.
It's all just malicious code people! Call them out when they make use of it! These are perfect examples of how the Republicans talk to each other behind closed doors. You know what they really mean, so say it already.
