  • Newt Gingrich Brands Democrats "The Party of Food Stamps" - 7 comments
    Oct 8, 2010 7:34 AM
    As you can imagine, Phil had something to say about this in Member Chat:   


        • Here’s Fox’s marching orders - "Gingrich Brands Democrats ‘Party of Food Stamps‘":  

           

          MINNEAPOLIS — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrichis advising Republican candidates on November’s ballots to frame the choice for voters between Democrats as "the party of food stamps" while selling the GOP as "the party of paychecks."  With a month to go before the election, Gingrich brought his branding effort to Minnesota on Wednesday. 

           

          Gingrich this week distributed a memo to Republican hopefuls saying they should use the final month to stress tax and spending cuts as a way to spur job growth while attacking Democratic policies as detrimental that effort.

          "It’s perfectly fair to say they are earning the title of the party of food stamps," he said. "By contrast, we have historically sinceRonald Reagan of 1980 been the party of job creation."

           

           

          Oh really???

          And that’s not even updated to include the last two years of Bush, where he became the 2nd President since Roosevelt (with the first being his first term) to actually lose jobs over a 4-year period:

          Oh yeah, and the Republicans are, of course, the right party to control spending too! (choke, cough):

          It’s the economy, stupid:  



           



           

          I don’t know how many ways this has to be shown to people, I vote Democrat BECAUSE I like to make money and I want this country and its people to have a secure future.  What good are low tax rates if there is no opportunity?  What good are low tax rates if the country goes bankrupt and the dollars you "save" become worthless?  

          And who was in control of Congress when this happened?

          And who was in office when Federal Spending went up 66% between 2001 and 2007?  



           

          I mean really, folks - this is real stuff, not the empty rhetoric of the con men who talk a good game to get elected and then do the exact opposite once they get in power

    Phil, I live in California and the Dems have controlled spending forever! We are out of control. Both parties do suck. They do what is best for them and them only. Now where does that put us? We are in big, big trouble no matter who is in office! We have a system that is broken, many are finding ways to game it. I see this daily and its distrubing at the lest. You bitch, the other side bitches. Its sad that America has come to this!

    I Had some respect for you until today. You're a dumbass and should leave politics to those much smarter than you. By the way we are in this mess because of both parties.

    agree i liked his blogs and respected them ...untill today....both party's are corrupt beyond belief.

     

    It's like voting between cutting my right arm off and setting my left one on fire.....thankfully many otherwise intelligent people are coming to there senses....i.e the the political system is broken. It seems that older people who are more used to playing for "their side" have more difficulty seeing this

     

    Your poltical standing in society is a catch 22.... you lose social standing by not taking a side in a rigged game....or excuse me independents....not entering to play in a rigged game.

    How utterly typical. Someone confronts you with FACTS that make you unhappy and you "lose respect" for them. Well, the good news is that now that you don't like Phil you will have more time to watch Fox news where I'm sure you won't be irritated with inconveniences like actual facts.

    Interesting article. We're not voting for a president this year, though.
    I firmly believe that whenever a party controls the presidency, the house, and the senate, we're all in trouble.

     

    My preference is a democratic president and a republican congress.

    typical comeback from a dog! You heard me say that I love Gingrich and how dare you attack him. i said no such thing. I said both parties suck. I probably should have said it in a high enough pitch that only a dog could hear it.
