what. the. fark?

it almost - almost - makes me feel bad for romney. though you just know romney would've done the same thing if he thought it would give him a single extra jewish vote.

It's true. I read the prophecy in the Book of Mormon.
 
2012-01-31 12:58:09 PM
Wow.

Now that is how you pander to a demographic.

I know it's hard to make a good bagel in Florida, but at least they try.
 
2012-01-31 01:04:45 PM
Well, sort of, though "forced" is hyperbolic.

The call is referencing Romney's veto of a 2003 bill. It came at a time that some nursing homes were considering eliminating their kosher kitchens during a period of budget cuts. Their plan was to instead bus in kosher food from other locations. The bill Romney vetoed would have given an additional $600,000 in funding to nursing homes, therefore making it possible for them to continue cooking kosher food on site.

So, Gingrich's fine for ethics violations would've covered half of this program.

To be fair... as much as I can't stand Newt... I've met many Holocaust survivors in my day and most of them weren't Kosher. My grandparents, who were Kosher all their lives, get Meals on Wheels now and don't care that it isn't Kosher.

Are they not concerned that the Jewish God Kabbala will send them to Jewish hell?

/I don't know much about religion.

James!: Jewish hell


Wisconsin?

I'm pretty sure Wisconsin isn't supposed to be real, it's in the Jewish bible as a metaphor.

Why doesn't he just accuse Romney of piping Zyklon B into the air conditioning?

You should see what the Mormons are doing to the ones that DIDN'T survive the holocaust.

I hate both these guys so much, I really don't know which one to root for. No matter who wins, he still has to be slaughtered by Obama.
 
2012-01-31 01:50:21 PM
This is so awesome. Keep doubling down, Newt. I should donate to his campaign ...
 
2012-01-31 01:55:41 PM

James!: Now that is how you pander to a demographic.


I keep saying this in other threads: since both of them are going to lose, Newt should get the nomination. If you're going to cause a train wreck, you should use the biggest locomotive you can find.

This is just a taste of what we'd get during the general election. Frankly, an ad with blackface and Santa Claus dressed up as Satan wouldn't surprise me if Newt wins the nomination.

Newt would be daring enough to call Obama out on his unrepentant blackness.

Mitt Romney: Just like Hitler

I'm Newt Gingrich, and I approve this message.
 
2012-01-31 02:01:41 PM
If Newt was really serious about winning Florida he should have gone all in: claim Romney forced Holocaust survivors to be fed halal prepared meals by the kids back up North who never call, while Fidel Castro gets to watch on in amusement.

There. I think I covered all the demographics.
 
2012-01-31 02:02:05 PM
If it was anybody but Newt, I'd assume anything THAT sleazy must have been a false-flag plant.
 
2012-01-31 02:05:12 PM
I guess I should have thrown Sharia law in there somewhere. That seems to be a bigger buzzword for the rednecks than halal for some reason. Not sure they know what that is.

Oh well.
 
2012-01-31 02:06:42 PM
This is getting good.
 
2012-01-31 02:08:06 PM
"While governor of TAXachussetts, Mitt Romney implemented Sharia law to force Holocaust survivors to be fed halal prepared meals by the kids back up North who never call, while Fidel Castro got to watch on in amusement."

There. That's more like it.

Mitt Romney personally dug up Anne Frank's body and put Mormon underwear on her.

Well, he baptized her at the secret temple ceremony, then had her get her 'endowements' by wearing her magic underwear and then watching the creation movie, put on funny clothing, swear allegiance to the church and god and then do a lot of secret hand shakes, give secret passwords so she could be mormon in heaven with him. (Yes. That's what they do.)

So .... you are right.
 
2012-01-31 02:21:14 PM
Here's the thing, though. Mitt is an adherent to a religion that has all sorts of dietary codes. Yet, he has a tin ear when it comes to the concerns of other religions.
Did Mitt force-feed non-Kosher meals to observant Jews? No. But he was more concerned with saving what amounts to pocket change for him than with the needs of his elderly Jewish constituents. If a Protestant, Catholic or Jewish governor mandated doing away with, say, magic underwear to save a few bucks you can bet Mitt would be outraged. Or whatever it is that simulates outrage in his programming.

that would be interesting if the money had been specifically ear-marked for funding kosher food, rather than a general budget increase for state-funded retirement homes.
 
2012-01-31 02:24:18 PM
Keep on adding reasons why I don't like you, Newt.
 
2012-01-31 02:30:12 PM
Oh and the worst thing about this is that Romney's veto was actually overturned, which means that no, Holocaust survivors were not in any way forced halal pig thanks to Taxomney McMormoncare

FTA: "Their plan was to instead bus in kosher food from other locations. The bill Romney vetoed would have given an additional $600,000 in funding to nursing homes, therefore making it possible for them to continue cooking kosher food on site."


This may sound hearltess and cruel, but the truth is, keeping such a facility up to kosher snuff is no simple matter.

In order to properly "cook kosher on site", you need a "$upervised" kitchen, and either all food served must meet kosher standards, or you need two completely separate kitchens (separate cookware, etc) and assurances that no cross "contamination" might occur.

Needless to say, kosher can be co$tly.

Better that those who demand such standards stay in facilities where they won't be bothered by those that like cheeseburgers.

Anyway, Newt's attack is sure to split the Red Sea of Florida's Jewish voters.

So then is it ok for Jews who are not Holocaust survivors to eat non kosher food?????

What's funny is that disingenuously using Jews and antisemitism to scare people into voting for him is antisemitic in and of itself.

"Those suckers will believe anything if you toss the Holocaust in there."

"Some say Romney called this a temporary measure, but he was working on a final solution."

I'm surprised with all the pandering in Florida that he didn't change his name to Jewt.

So you are saying that the Jewish folks should live in separate, but equal, facilities?
