Newt is toast, that much we already know. But David Gregory wasn't satisfied with. He had to go the extra mile and make Newt into a racist. That was the thrust when David Gregory (full disclosure--a friend of mine) called Gingrich a racist for say President Obama was a "food stamp president".
Now ... BHO has presided over an enormous rise in the number of Americans on food stamps. His administration raised the qualifying income to $60k a year, and he's encouraging college students to get on food stamps. He's got 47 million Americans addicted to free, government provided food. That's what? One in six? It's a lot. So what's wrong with crying "all hail the Food Stamp President?"
Are black people the only Americans on food stamps? No, not by a long shot. It's more racist to ask that question than to make the statement Gingrich made.
Look, the real racism in this country is assuming the 21st century white population regards blacks the same as 18th century whites. Calling someone a racist is the cheapest and easiest political put down, and very often it is the most cynical and dishonest.
