Newt Gingrich on Bain Capital: "I think private equity on balance creates more jobs than it kills"

On the heels of recent Bain Capital commentary, first from Barack Obama and then New Jersey governor Cory Booker, on Monday "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed Newt Gingrich for his unparalleled blend of candor and insight.

No longer in the race for the Republican nomination, the former House Speaker shared his feelings on the financial issue, even as it seemingly aligned him with former opponnent Mitt Romney:

"I think private equity on balance creates more jobs than it kills," said the former GOP presidential candidate in an exclusive interview. "I think it creates a much better future."

Though Piers Morgan suggested the president will use snippets from previous Gingrich speeches to attack Romney, much in the way the former Massachusetts governor is already using Booker's recent words against the incumbent, Gingrich didn't budge:

"Sure. And he can," allowed Monday's guest. "You asked me about private equity in general...I would pick private equity every time. Countries that use private equity get richer, and countries that follow socialism get poorer."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Newt Gingrich further details his stance on private equity on the backdrop of the recent Bain Capital discussion.

    I need to post this here for anyone who doesn't know this. Newt did not drop out. He suspended not ended his campaign. People are being told that Newt dropped out, that he isn't an option, that only Romney remains, and that Mitt's inevitable. And that's simply false. Newt is still on the ballot. He's a consistent conservative with a proven track record, and he can beat Obama in a debate and in November. Romney can't. And, Romney has nowhere near the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination. A brokered GOP convention will give Newt a chance to shine, and the delegates, a chance to get it right, by selecting someone who can win against Obama, and win for the American People... Newt Gingrich.

    Romney fundraiser w/manufacturer of the Morning After Pill http://shar.es/q0GKT w/out 'social' conservatives GOP loses, get better candidate – there is still time, the delegates pick the nominee at the convention in August. Faithful Christians (the majority of voters) will NOT vote for this guy and the GOP will lose. WE MUST DEFEAT Obama in Nov. We need a CONSERVATIVE candidate, not one who cheerfully accepts blood money.

      You see, this is exactly what i mean when i talk to people and tell them that Romney can't even begin to defend himself against his record.....because he is still pro-choice! His actions speak way louder than his vapid words! Nobody wants Romney because he is a counterfeit ! Obama and Romney are two peas in a pod and the good people of these United States realize this is a disaster for the GOP. We must nominate a true conservative that will carry the bold colors of conservatism to the White House. Since Newt is still on all remaining ballots we must vote for Newt to save America!

    There is NO nominee until the delegates select one at the RNC Convention in August. NEWT is on all remaining ballots. Put the cereal box down, turn off the TV and learn the rules and some real history. Did you pass civics class? How did Bush do against Clinton? How did Dole do? How did McCain do against the current occupant of the WH? For that matter how did Bush, Jr. do against Kerry – I mean Kerry is as bad as Romney and Bush barely won. He lost every single voter demographic except one and that put him over the top! Guess who that was – yup. Socially and Morally CONSERVATIVE voters broke for bush by 80%!!!! That's how you win. Get a real candidate and stop accusing US of helping OBAMA it is YOU and all the Romdroids that are giving Obama another four years. Wake up!

    RON PAUL HAS HAD A DELEGATE GROUND GAME FROM THE BEGINNING. PAUL WILL STOP MITT FROM GETTING 1,144 BEFORE THE CONVENTION. IF YOU WANT A LIBERTARIAN BE HAPPY. IF YOU WANT A CONSERVATIVE VOTE FOR NEWT! GET NEWT TO TAMPA, YOU KNOW HE’LL TAKE THE NOMINATION AND THEN MOP THE FLOOR WITH THE SOCIALIST OCCUPIER OF OUR WHITE HOUSE!

      Yes, they do have a strong ground game because they understand the primary system set up for this Republic. They are gobbling up delegates left and right...which means.....open convention because they will prevent Romney from hitting the magic number of delegates! Of course I love this because after the first ballot, when Romney fails to secure 1144, most delegates are then unbound........leaving a gaping whole for a true conservative like NEWT to swoop in and capture the majority! I Love this country!!!

    I WORK in NYC media and this whole town is gearing up to destroy Romney totally. You know what the biggest hit on Broadway is, soon to be a motion picture? The Book of Mormon, the Musical, by the South Park guys, sold out a year in advance, it eviscerates the lunatic faith. The people laughing their heads off in the theater will be all of America by November. A female reporter just showed up to an event riding in a dog kennel on top of a car. Romney refuses to play hardball with Obama and cannot seem to construct a convincing response to those attacking his cult, including those by his own cousin who used to belong to it. this is a train wreck. IT MUST BE NEWT AT THE BROKERED CONVENTION. VOTE FOR NEWT. DENY ROMNEY THE VOTES. TAKE THIS TO TAMPA!

    Bush-41 won on Reagan’s coattails and then hit high speed dirt on his own, Dole, McCain also lost BIG. Bush-43 barely beat Al Gore, but come on! Al Gore!?! He only beat Kerry in one key block – social conservatives. He lost every other group. This tells you that moderates like Mitt LOSE! It also illustrates that a man with a true moral conviction about Judeo-Christian values will utterly destroy Obama in November.

    Obama is a Socialist/Communist/Corporatist, which are just big words for loser, but he is formidable because the mindless masses still think he’s cool, plus they like free stuff with no labor. If given another 4 years, he’ll destroy the USA. OBAMA MUST BE DEFEATED IN NOVEMBER. That will only happen if the GOP has a truly CONSERVATIVE candidate. The only living conservative who has ever delivered EFFECTIVE and authentically CONSERVATIVE changes in DUMPSTER CITY (DC) is Speaker NEWT GINGRICH.

      He's a libertarian. My main isuess against him are that he doesn't think that it's important to support Israel, and he thinks that if we withdraw from Arab lands then the Jihadists will leave us alone. He's wrong on both isuess.Santorum is right on both of those isuess, but I wish he would take more of a Tea Party stand and commit to shrinking government. Santorum is my first choice right now, but if he drops out at any point, I'll have a difficult choice between Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul. I hope that Newt and Romney so disgust Florida voters with their back and forth negative ads that voters give Santorum the win in Florida.

    Mormons believe that Joseph Smith is equal to Jesus. that's Romney. For real. Muslims believe that Jesus was only some guy hanging around. that's probably Obama since his school records in Jakarta show that he is. Both are liberals. Both have ruined their economies.

    Mitt Romney is pro-abortion, but says he isn’t. He is anti-gun ownership rights, but says he’s pro-gun. He is for the NDAA, but says he likes liberty. Against his legislature and supreme court he gave Sodomites so-called marriage, but says that he is a faithful Christian. Basically, he is engineered to appear to be a good candidate who says the right things, but his record reveals that MITT IS EXACTLY LIKE OBAMA, he may also have been born abroad, so he is exactly like OBAMA, well except one of them is a Mormon.

Lincoln was regarded as a dark horse contender with no chance of victory. However, he won the nomination on the third ballot, and as we all know, went on to win the presidency that November...Force a BROKERED CONVENTION!!! VOTE NEWT!

When is the media going to start vetting Romney and tell the public the truth about him? Romney can not defeat Obama so if you are voting out Obama, vote for someone other than Romney. The other suspended candidates names are still on the ballots , vote for one of them. I choose Newt Gingrich, the real conservative.

    In a recent poll taken by CBSNEWS/NYT (liberal) POLL: May 11-13 of 562 registered voters they currently have Romney Beating Obama 46% to 43% with a 4% margin of error. The point that was brought up by the reporter delivering the news was that neither candidate is really liked and that’s why they are both polling low numbers. In a poll where Romney should be way ahead of Obama bc Obama has failed as a president but Romney is not. This is more proof that NEWT!!! Is the man to BEAT Obama. The GOP establishment has elected Romney and many people are just falling in place. WE must take a stand and quit being robot slaves to the establishment>! NEWT IS STILL ON THE BALLOT!!!!

      I'm glad Newt pointed out that Romney is better only when compared to Obama. Unfortunately not by much. In the upcoming primaries, tomorrow in Arkansas and Kentucky and on may 29 in Texas – vote for Newt to let the GOP you want a conservative candidate and in the off chance that Romney wins anyway (Paul is going to make that impossible); then you can hold your nose once again and vote for him and watch him lose to Obama in November.

    WOW!! First time I can say I agree with the Obamination Admin. ORombney can't be trusted either!!! NEWT is the only one that we can trust. He is a proven leader!! NEWT is still on the ballots during the primary. STOP ORombney and get NEWT to a brokered convention!!

    I love listening to Newt! He is brilliant. I do pray that the people in the states that have yet to vote in primaries will have their eyes opened to the treasure Newt Gingrich is to our nation. He has a plan and specific solutions to turn things around in the economy. What he said here about capitalism as opposed to socialism is key. That is at the heart of Newt Gingrich, and he will not crumble. Vote for Newt 2012!

    WE do not want Obamination to take us to a socialist/communist country and we definitely do not want Mittens either. NEWT is the proven leader who will undo the communistic changes that Obamination has done. Newt is still on the ballots. He only suspended. VOTE FOR NEW in your primary.

    We all know that Obama has a Messiah Complex, but did you know that Romney's Morman faith teaches him that becoming POTUS will fulfill a prophecy, and make him a god himself? Mitt has a right to believe anything he wants, but, that doesn't mean that I want him as our President. Think I'm exaggerating, search for "Park Romney" on the net, and see what Mitt's cousin has to say on the subject. It's far better for us to vet Romney now, while we still have a choice, then to wait and let Obama do it.

    Newt’s record on Welfare reform for the first time in 60 years. Is nothing short of miraculous. Did you know in 1995, Time named him "Man of the Year" for his role in ending 40 years of majority control by the Democratic Party? That is success people! That's what we need in America right now. Someone who can get the job done. That's the real deal right there.

    Newt continued to compare Mitt Romney to Barack Obama, but if you were to compare Newt Gingrich to either of them, Newt would by far be the best choice. He has a solid record of being able to get things done in Washington – even when he was working with a president for the opposing party. He is very intelligent, and sees solutions – not just problems. Thank you for having him on the air today!

    Newt Gingrich was a pro-life legislator before he entered the Catholic Church. Now armed with a 2,000 year old deposit of faith, he will defend the pre-born because Newt believes that which Jefferson wrote. Our rights come from our Creator and among these are the unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Notice without Creator and Life, none of the other rights are even possible

    Romney is a RINO. That's a Republican In Name Only. Perfect name for him. He sure isn't conservative. How can I be so
    sure? Because he opposed the Reagan policies of the 80`s and the Contract With America in the 90s. RINO Romney is not who Conservatives want for our nominee, I can tell you that.

    Romney is a LIBERAL!

    In 1994, Romney opposed the Contract with America without even reading it. Romney has made political contributions to Democratic candidates, saying he places friendship above politics. Romney appeared in 2003 TV ad endorsing Democrat Rocky Anderson – who has been outspoken in calling for President Bush’s impeachment over Iraq war – for reelection as Salt Lake City mayor; Romney featured an Anderson testimonial in his own TV ads while running for governor in 2002.

      Wow, Deborah! I didn't know that Mitt Romney opposed the original Contract with America. That was one of the greatest ideas of the 20th Century. It did much to turn things for the better. That is why I am "with Newt." He not only has ideas, he has specific plans to implement those ideas – and with the help of America, gets it done.

    Private equity fuels many startups, giants like Facebook... Google, Paypal, etc. had funding from Venture capital and Private equity amongst other investors. To say that all private equity firms are bad for the economy, is a comment that lacks intelligence. There are good and bad private equity firms, just like any other sector. Not sure why this point is so critical.

      No one said finance was bad. I hardly want a president that sat around planning investment strategy, making people "synergies", or sticking the public with a bailout for his over-levered mess. It is like hiring the London Whale for president. Romney's rinky-dink fund looks like a real stinker.

    How crazy does the GOP have to be to nominate a governor who implemented the socialistic health care plan on which PPACA (Obamacare) was based. The American people didn't want this nightmare, and even more dislike it today and next year if it all kicks in our health care costs will sky-rocket. There is no way Romney can defeat Obama and even if he did, why does anyone think he would undo the very same plan that he implemented in his state? We need someone with real solutions and a record of getting them implemented. Speaker Gingrich delivered in 1994 and he'll do it again. Vote for Newt and send him to Tampa with delegates so he can defeat Obama and repeal and replace Obamacare.

    MaximusNewtimusGingrichus-- I completely agree with you, it’s going to be a complete embarrassments to the conservative movement to have Mittens on stay during a debate and say “I’m going to repeal Obama’s socialistic health care plan when I become president….”and Obama: “ Whatever do you mean, I don’t fully understand what the governor means. My heath care bill is based off what he implemented in Massachusetts”..omg I can already see the headlines…NEW YORK TIMES (and any liberal MSM).”Mittens …lost in the sauce and Obama is cooking”.

    From the last Republican adminstration, we are experiencing the trickle down effects.
    Obama point blank said it could take at least ten years before we could start seeing results.
    Sometimes things have to get worse before they start getting better.
    In our countries situation, when Obama took office, he took on "the biggest mess", from the last adminstration,' since the Depression'. as Newt stated many times during this interview.
    It effected the whole world.
    The world matters.
    It's not just about the United States of America.
    We are experiencing the after effects, state wide and world wide, from the last Republican adminstration.
    Who is going to create these jobs?
    The Capitalists of the United States of America who have been effected by the last Republican adminstration.
    Barak Obama, indeed, inhereited THE BIG MESS.
    Don't blame Obama for what the Republican Party created.
    I watched ,early on, this, extreme, group of Republicans fighting to win the primary. It was not a pretty picture.
    The damage has been done and it has to heal.
    There are lectures one can get on line to learn about Capitalism. They are worth checking out.
    Know your country.

    This election is about leadership. Mitt Romney ran a strategy for investment. "Net, net", he ran it badly. His bank account in Switzerland won and the public, employees, and creditors lost. He has little to no accomplishments in foreign, economic, or domestic policy.

    I am confused about something. For the first 40 years of my life, conservative republicans stood for small government and freedom from moral and social legislation. But in the last 10 years, conservative has changed to mean fewer freedoms and adoptions of christianity. Am I the only one who perceives this?

    Mitt Romney Wouldn't Know a Free Market If It Bit Him on the As s

    Private equities might but leveraged buyout don't creat jobs. There is a difference between Private equity and Leveraged buyouts. Romney's deal was a leveraged buyout.
