We need better candidates -- won't someone step up and say they are now running. A lot of state's ballots have not closed and if a candidate does not get 50% then it will go to the Convention. Gingrich wanting Santorum out of the race is ludicrous after the way he has acted this last week. He has gone over the edge and showed the American people what he would be like as President if crossed. Romney is not much better IMHO.
Gingrich Robocall: Romney Forced Holocaust Survivors in Nursing Homes to Eat Non-Kosher Food
2:05 PM, Jan 31, 2012 • By JOHN MCCORMACK
Via GOP12, here's a Newt Gingrich robocall going out to Floridians:
"As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney vetoed a bill paying for kosher food for our seniors in nursing homes. Holocaust survivors, who for the first time, were forced to eat non-kosher, because Romney thought $5 was too much to pay for our grandparents to eat kosher."
Commentary's Alana Goodman points out that Gingrich's attack is completely false:
Romney never actually “eliminated serving kosher food” to Jewish residents at state nursing homes, especially not in the way Gingrich describes.
In 2002, cuts in both federal and state subsidies to assisted living facilities, combined with the rising costs of maintaining the facilities, caused a couple of Massachusetts nursing homes to consider closing their kosher kitchens. It was an unfortunate decision, but there was never actually a concern that kosher residents would be forced to eat non-kosher food – the facilities were weighing several options, including busing in the food from other nursing homes or hiring catering services.This is beyond disgusting and shows little regard for the voter by doing an obvious lie for a robocall. Looks like we have two candidates who will say and do anything to win. These two candidates are handing Obama all the ammunition he needs to win in 2012 if either Romney or Gingrich is the nominee.
Great job RNC of blowing this election and then you have the nerve to ask for donations. Unreal! You should have set down the candidates a long time ago and told them to tone it down and stop the lies but the RNC seems to have preferred to play kingmaker with all the debates. Now we are left with one big mess and two candidates who most of us don't like. It is now who is the lesser of the two arrogant jerks acting like school yard bullies.
Tonight the results of the Florida primary will be in and the GOP will be one step closer of walking the plank with a candidate that almost everyone I know is not enthused about. Won't someone please step up to the plate and say they have had it and throw their hat in the race at this late date?
