Gingrich: Let the mob fund its own museum

On ABC's This Week, the little Grecian urn, George S, asked Barack Obama whether a proposed Museum of Organized Crime was the type of project he wanted to fund.

Barack Obama:

Well, I think that what we have to do is evaluate whether or not these are projects that, as I said, are going to provide long-term benefits to the economy. You know, I would prefer spending money on things like making sure that all federal buildings are energy efficient so the taxpayers are saving money over the long-term.

When asked the same question, Newt Gingrich responded:

"I think if the mob wants a museum, they have enough money to build it themselves."

A preview of the 2012 Presidential debate?
