In his speech to the NRA Mitt Romney continues to distort reality. Check it out in our latest installment of “Mitt Romney versus Reality.”

Former Senator Arlen Specter denies promising Rick Santorum conservatives on the Supreme Court.

So much for Republican Family values.  It seems that some of the most sexually uptight members of the GOP usually end up having a super freaky closet life, that would embarass Hugh Hefner and Larry Flynt.   The “Do as I Say , Not as I Do” concept of living is ripe within Conservative circles,  and there has been no shortage of scandal in the 2012 GOP  election season. There’s been Herman Cain, the serial adulterer, and his BFF and protege’ Newt Gingrich, the “serial husband/adulterer”, and now, just as Newt Gingrich has retaken the lead in the South Carolina primary poll from Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, yet another bombshell regarding Gingrich has hit regarding his lurid past.  Marianna Gingrich, Newts 2nd Wife, has spilled the beans on the activities between Her, Newt and Calista.  Looks like Newt and his best friend Herman Cain have far more in common that we ever thought….. I wonder if they ever partied together?

Edward True, 28, of Moulton, said he helped count the votes and jotted the results down on a piece of paper to post to his Facebook page. He said when he checked to make sure the Republican Party of Iowa got the count right, he said he was shocked to find they hadn’t.

Well We all knew it would be just a matter of time before Rick Santorum‘s “Inner Cracker” would surface…. but to be fair, you can tell when he said it… he knew he had just fucked up! lol

CBS News reports…..

While campaigning in Sioux City, Iowa Sunday, GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum said if elected he plans to cut regulations and entitlements and he doesn’t want to “make black people‘s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money.”

David Badash of the New Civil Rights Movement writes……..

According to government statistics, 35% of adults on welfare (TANF) are white, 34% are black, and 24% are Hispanic.

So, does Santorum only want to help whites, or is he just rolling around in stereotypical assumptions — albeit false ones — about welfare recipients? Santorum then went on to extol the “trickle-​down” virtues of Reaganomics, which have been proven to be false.

Stephen Webster at The Raw Story notes:

Speaking to Republicans in Iowa on Monday, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-​PA) said his administration would reform welfare to the point that it would offer no welfare at all.

After suggesting that an expansion of Medicare is really just a plot to make voters more “dependent” on Washington, Santorum added: ”I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them other people’s money.”

“I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn their money and provide for themselves and their families,” he added. “The best way to do that is to get the manufacturing sector of the economy rolling.”

According to the University of Michigan’s National Poverty Center, 27.4 percent of blacks and 26.6 percent of Hispanics were living in poverty in 2010, compared to 9.9 percent of whites. Unemployment statistics between the racial demographics are similarly skewed.

Despite the factually flawed nature of Santorum’s pitch on Monday, the underlying logic of his pitch is abundantly clear: census data shows that over 91 percent of Iowans are white, a community Santorum must desperately appeal to if he wants a win in Tuesday’s caucuses.

On Wednesday, Dec. 7, the Republican Jewish Coalition will host a presidential-candidates forum featuring Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum. Not invited is the GOP candidate currently polling around third in New Hampshire and second in Iowa: Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas). The explanation: Paul was not invited to attend the RJC’s candidates forum because the organization — as it has stated numerous times in the past — “rejects his misguided and extreme views,” said [RJC Executive Director Matt] Brooks. “He’s just so far outside of the mainstream of the Republican party and this organization,” Brooks said. Inviting Paul to attend would be “like inviting Barack Obama to speak.”

Press TV talks with Mark Dankof, former US Senate candidate in San Antonio who compares Ron Paul’s rising popularity and clear and principled rhetoric to 1990s presidential candidate Pat Buchanan, also against the Israeli lobby, who was systematically attacked and brought down by Zionist-controlled US media.

In the most recent Republican debate, Rick Santorum endorsed racial profiling to prevent terrorist attacks, specifying Muslims and younger men. Opponent Ron Paul expressed his disagreement with Santorum’s stance.
