Original Starting post for this thread:
WASHINGTON — Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said Thursday he is willing to go before the NAACP and urge blacks to demand paychecks, not food stamps.

Gingrich told a town hall meeting at a senior center in Plymouth, N.H., that if the NAACP invites him to its annual convention this year, he'd go there and talk about "why the African-American community should demand paychecks and not be satisfied with food stamps."

He also said he'd pitch a new Social Security program aimed at helping young people, particularly African-American males, who he said get the smallest return on Social Security.

Gingrich routinely lambasts President Barack Obama as the "best food stamp president in American history." He also has spoken previously about welcoming an invitation from the NAACP to speak and has been critical of GOP candidates who have not accepted such an invitation.

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People had no immediate comment on Gingrich's remarks. His campaign spokesman, R.C. Hammond, said the former Georgia congressman has often said the GOP needs to be inclusive of all Americans.

"He has said since he became a presidential candidate that any Republican should always accept an invitation to speak to the NAACP on any topic," Hammond said.

Gingrich's comments follow those by rival candidate Rick Santorum, a former senator from Pennsylvania who said Sunday that he did not want to "make black people's lives better by giving them somebody else's money. I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money."

Santorum's comments were criticized by National Urban League President Marc H. Morial as pandering to racist elements within the GOP. Morial also said that 70 percent of people on food stamps are white. The Agriculture Department does not break down food stamp participation rates by race.

NAACP President Ben Jealous also criticized Santorum's remarks.

Food stamp participation and costs have risen under Obama, from 28.2 million participants at a cost of $37.6 billion in 2008 to 44.7 million participants at a cost of $75.3 billion last year, according to federal data of what is officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The increases followed the steep economic downturn that began in 2008.

Gingrich said if he has a chance to go before the NAACP, he would explain a "brand-new Social Security opportunity" for young people, "which would be particularly good for African-American males, because they are the group that gets the smallest return on Social Security."

Wow.....I didn't know Newt was this fucking thick....I'm not surprised to hear this shit from awkward background players like Rick Santorum. Newt just seems to fucking smart to say shit like this without a strategy. I seriously think he's trying to get the Racist vote by doing this. With Racism as high as it's ever been, especially with this idiot Obama as president, no man in his right mind would honestly expect to get the Black vote by saying shit like this. He's aiming for another voting block entirely. This was very disappointing. Even if some of the things said were true, it's not his fucking place to say them. Not if you are trying to become EVERYONE'S elected representative. What's next Newt, maybe you'll encourage Asian drivers to adopt better driving standards? Instead of using stereotypes, he should have offered to sit down and LISTEN to Black Leaders and Organizations, and come out with viable suggestions and solutions. That's all he had to fucking do! This Paycheck vs Food Stamps shit is a at best a backhanded compliment, he comes off as a pompous ass who enjoys browbeating minorities. I'd expect this kind of shit on an online forum, but not from a fucking presidential candidate. This is one of the main reasons why I'm an independent and will probably vote so in the next election. Fuck me....what an idiot. ___

Remember the blonde slut on Sex in the City (Samantha?), not the main char.... well, one person said, "they're getting divorced? They were so happy together..."

And she chimes in, "Until they weren't". It's simple, but yet so true and kinda funny.

We are ALL happy, or happy enough to stay (job, relationship, etc), -- UNTIL we're not happy. Nothing lasts forever, anything good anyways.

Two ppl could have been high school or college sweethearts. Would have given their last breathe to the other, so they might live --- then somebody fucks around. War of The Roses!!! How can so much passion (of love) turn a 180 so easily? And then bicker and fight and try to get the last lick/word/hit in. I gotta get you back, cuz you can't have the last say-so.

I know far more ppl that had great dating lives, or enjoyed dating their (current or ex) spouse -- until the marriage. That piece of paper says, "There's gonna be some changes around here. And guess who gets to change?"

In Canada, we solve domestic disputes with a triathalon of events:

1. Snowball fight Battle-Royale style 2. Toboggan racing 3. Sticking our tongues to flagpoles.

The distinct Canadian accent is a direct result of #3.

OK seriously - it's no different there or anywhere else. My mother is still trying to "get" my father 15 years later every chance she gets.

VA, I don't know how they do it in CAN, but in most other countries of the world, ex's are that for a reason. Custody of kids, lies (2-3 sides of their story), money, property, etc, these are all the spoils of the divorce war. Most ppl don't divorce to be nice to each other. My father's sister kept her ex husband's 1957 Caddy in their settlement -- only to let it rust in her garage. Some ppl try to kill their ex's. Newt is just fighting the truth that she "let slip out". Do you really feel sorry for him? Fuck Newt!

I doesn't matter to me. But for many people, it would.

But especially for a Republican politician, it shows an uber-Gingrich level of hubris...

A number of famous and high profile people have been.

That doesn't mean that the public would accept it in someone for elected office.

I've answered that before in answering why I wouldn't run for office. Someone WOULD dig up our swinging life, and it would all be over, with ostracism from our families to boot.

Mind you, I can barely stand most of my family anyway.. might be a bonus.

Slightly off topic, but Warren Buffet has openly been in an open marriage for years. But then, he's not running for anything.

Do you think it'll matter if it's true?

If it's true - the public will hate him.

If it's not true - his only choice will be to call his ex-wife a liar in public. We'll never know if it actually IS true, but it won't matter.

C-Ya Newt.

I personally think it's really shitty for his ex-wife to do that for no reason other than to "get him" one more time.

"Drudge is reporting this morning that Newt's ex-wife is claiming that their marriage fell apart after he demanded an "open marriage" so that he could continue his affair with Calista while staying married to her."

I am not a big fan of Newt, but how out of touch must he be to think that an open marriage by a high profile politician, especially a Speaker of the House or one running for President, would not be media fodder...

If it's true, that is...
