Appearing on NBC's 'Meet the Press,' on Sunday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that he hopes that the jobs report on Friday will somehow drown out President Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention (video below), reports ThinkProgress.org.

Gingrich said: "I think the biggest event won’t be his speech Thursday. It’ll be the Friday morning jobs report. If that Friday morning jobs report is bad, it’ll drown his speech. You want to talk about Eastwood? Friday morning jobs report is a lot bigger event next week than Eastwood was this week."
