Newt Gets The Boot For Calling Obama, The Food Stamp President!


During Monday night’s GOP debate in Myrtle Beach, SC, presidential candidate Newt Gingrich called President Barack Obama “The Food Stamp President”. Gingrich insists that black kids don’t need handouts from President Obama — they need jobs. Newt is trying to imply that, because President Obama is African-American he’s giving blacks the very thing they know best: a free ride.

Gingrich says schoolchildren should be given janitorial jobs because, in his opinion, janitors in the NYC public school system earn way too much money. The average annual salary for a NYC public school janitor is $80,000, compared to a teacher who earns $45,000 annually.

According to the NY Daily News, Gingrich argued the best thing public schools could do for students – particularly black students – was to give them a broom.

“Can’t you see that this is viewed at a minimum as insulting to all Americans, but particularly to black Americans?” asked Fox News questioner Juan Williams, who is part Hispanic and black.

“No, I don’t see that,” Gingrich responded, with rousing applause from the majority white audience.

On Jan. 21, voters in South Carolina will vote to pick their choice for the Republican presidential candidate. Recent polls in the South show Gingrich running second behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney., who did not oppose one word out of Gingrich’s mouth. That means they’re two of a kind because silence brings consent.

        He’s saying poor kids have no work ethics, really? Some poor kids have single parents who work two jobs, if that isn’t enough work ethics to witness then I don’t know what. Rich kids are the ones that need work ethics with their spoiled asses.

        They are talking about “blacks” because this has been the key talking point of white conservatives (even with KKK members of their group) since blacks were brought here as slaves.

        You will note, that even Herman Cain spoke this way when he was a contender. In order to prove that you are a dyed in the wool conservative, you have to stick to the talking points that are writen in stone for conservatives and NEVER CHANGE: Black folks. You have to make sure that you talk against black people like there have been NO CHANGES since the 1800s.

  4. He wants to limit what they can do, black children have been working since slavery. They were mostly used to pick cotton, tabacoo and work in the fields. Those that were forunate not to have to endure that, would perfer there children focus on education or work in fast food or your local grocery store. But that’s not possible because they only give those jobs to non-speaking mexicans and indians.

    GOOD! Because the way I see it, janitors SHOULD be paid well to clean up people’s spit, sht, vomit, and monthly cycles.

    Since we are in a DEPRESSION, and even college graduates can’t get a job; I say that Newt has done us all a favor.
