Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich during the Republican presidential primaries often referred to President Barack Obama as the “food stamp president,” a charge that was met with piercing and outraged cries of “racism!”

“Over here you have a policy which, with Reagan and me as speaker, created millions of jobs — it’s called paychecks. Over here you have the most successful food stamp president in American history, Barack Obama,” Gingrich said.

Supposed “racist dog whistles” aside, it should be noted that Gingrich is not the first person to voice concern over the expansion of our so-called “welfare nation.”

I love Newt - always have - a very brilliant man. He tells it like it is and unfortunately most people don't want to hear that.

Look at it this way. The ONLY reason Obama has allowed this is because we are in a great depression, allow me to explain.

IF all of the people who are currently on welfare and food stamps, as well as section 8 housing were cut off, imagine the "Bread Lines" we'd see across our nation.

I told ALL of you years ago this was coming. Obama hid the seriousness of this problem by eliminating the Bread Lines so the Media wouldn't go nuts over it and America wouldn't look so bad as it actually should.

The Press is covering up how bad things truly are in America. Our government, (and mainly liberals) want you to borrow until it's all gone. Foreclosures are also being covered up. Many are being delayed and Banks are being forced to allow people to remain in their homes so the numbers don't actually show what they really are.

Then there's the cover up of all the people who are still out of work and no longer eligible for Unemployment.

Americans are simply getting used to this, (as well as current gas prices) as the new norm.

Wake up people.
