Newt Gingrich: 'We've Had People Take Their Food Stamp Money And Use It To Go To Hawaii'
The Huffington Post Paige Lavender

Quote:
The claim is false according to PolitiFact, which notes the food stamp program has "precise rules about what can and cannot be paid for." The site noted that the food stamp program does not allow funds to be used for restaurant meals and certain purchases like alcohol or vitamins.

Nothing new , but interesting >f [
B]Are American Jews unfit to marry Israelis?[/B]
The underlying message of the campaign certainly seemed to be you can't really remain Jewish in the US. The Jewish Channel called it a "semi-covert national campaign" carried out in at least five US cities with large Israeli populations to "convince them that their heritage will be lost if they don't soon go back to Israel."

The Jewish Channel said the ads suggest that "marrying American Jews could make Israelis lose their sense of identity" and ended the segment by segueing into growing Israeli complaints that it's hard to live there unless you pursue an "ultra-orthodox lifestyle."

The message is: Dear American Jews, thank you for lobbying for American defense aid (and what a great show you put on at the AIPAC convention every year!) but, please, stay away from our sons and daughters.

Like Flies to Cow Patties
Not sure why this article got limited exposure as it explains in detail what I've been saying for years.

Excerpt from article:

Quote:
...............................Enter George W. Bush, who, like Reagan, also enjoyed two terms in office, despite beliefs in brazen poppycock such as Intelligent Design and in the whopper of all disastrous absurdities, that Saddam Hussein was not only marshalling weapons of mass destruction to directly attack the U.S. (no, he was bluffing to deter his real enemy, neighboring Iran), but that he was also behind 9/11 (never let a good crisis go to waste, eh Mr. Cheney?). Only a true rube could believe such specious nonsense. And G.W. Bush – who exemplified the adage, “Never ascribe to malice what can adequately be explained by stupidity” -- fit the bill. The Republican Party loved him for it, bending over backwards to sanitize and “Hannitize” his many blunders, while selling his disinformation to a gullible American public still in shock from the attacks of 9/11....................................
Full article at following link. Interesting read.

Now you know the rest of the story.

The excitement builds, Herb postpones 11AM announcement to early afternoon.

Quote:
Barbecue is on a grill and a blues band is tuning up to play songs about Herman Cain outside of a large stucco building that used to be a display room for selling floor tiles on the north side of town here. If this is the way a presidential campaign ends, it is certainly a new chapter in the annals of politics.

How Newt Gingrich Saved Porn
In the 1990s, the speaker of the House fought against censorship of sexually explicit materials on the internet.
—By Tim Murphy
Fri Dec. 2, 2011 3:00 AM PST82.

Quote:
The Communications Decency Act of 1996 is not a subject that Newt Gingrich likes to talk about on the campaign trail. For the new GOP front-runner, the episode also marks a notable exception to his record as a social conservative: the time when Gingrich took on his own base to keep the web open for pornography. Here's how it happened.
This should be interesting in the debates.

Herman Cain suspends his campaign for 2012 GOP presidential nomination
Adios Herman.
By Krissah Thompson, Saturday, December 3, 10:43 AM

Herman Cain, a little known businessman who became a frontrunner in the Republican presidential race, suspended his campaign Saturday following allegations of an extramarital affair and claims of sexual harassment.
