Debate: Better Urban Policies Called Racist

Juan Williams throws a nice soft pitch up the middle for Newt Gingrich by suggesting that there's something offensive in some of his comments about the poor.


Rather than lashing out in anger -- as he is sometimes wont to do -- Newt dissected Williams' question with precision. He gave explicit examples, cited relevant and accurate facts, and extolled the virtues of hard work and individual responsibility. This earned him a standing ovation.
