What the Adelsons will want for their money

Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam have transformed the Republican primary by pumping $10 million into a pro-Newt Gingrich super PAC, thereby enabling his surge against Mitt Romney. So its' surprising that comments Gingrich made last week about what the Adelsons expect in exchange for their money haven t gotten more attention.

Romney Collects More in Donations From the Five Biggest Banks Than All Other Candidates Combined

Pat Garofalo, ThinkProgress: ''Mitt Romney has been leading the way in the 2012 presidential race when it comes to donations from Wall Street, pulling in millions from the financial sector since he launched his campaign.... Romney has received more in donations from employees of the nations' five biggest banks than all of the other presidential candidates combined.... So far, the financial industry has made 69 percent of its donations in the presidential race to Republicans.''

Buying Our Future

Jim Hightower, OtherWords: ''When Newt s presidential bid nearly flat-lined after his electoral collapses in Iowa and New Hampshire, Sheldon rushed in with emergency CPR: Cash-Powered Resuscitation. This one rich guy wrote a $5-million check to Gingrich s Super PAC, which is named 'Winning Our Future.' The PAC injected Sheldon s money directly into toxic attack ads against Mitt Romney in South Carolina s primary, jolting Newt s campaign back to life.''

Republican Candidates Have to Be Cynical or Foolish

Paul Krugman, Krugman & Co.: ''It goes as follows: to be a good Republican right now, you have to affirm your belief in things that any halfway intelligent politician can see are plainly false. This leaves room for only two kinds of candidates: those who just aren t smart and/or rational enough to understand the problem, and those who are completely cynical, willing to say anything to get ahead.''

When Mitt Says, ''I m Not Concerned About the Very Poor,'' It's Not a Slip-Up. He Said It Before


Bill Scher, Campaign for America s Future: ''Today, the nation is abuzz over Mitt Romney bluntly cold comment: 'I' m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there.' This is not a slip of the tongue. This is what he believes. We know, because he said it before.... He tries to drive a wedge between the middle class and the poor, goading the middle class into being resentful of the poor for coasting on a golden 'safety net' while the rest of us scrape to get by.''


Newt Gingrich: Evangelical space cadet

by Timothy J Taylor


Newt Gingrich is often described as the smartest most intelligent man in the room as compared to his rival running mates on the debate stage, however, if this is so, it s a mystery to me how he can come up with some of the dumbest must unintelligent ideas I?ve ever heard...
