For the rest of my post to be idiotic...I guess that would make the person who penned it to be an idiot. Right?
TD, post after post after post you bully people around like your professional credentials and your financial status gives you the supreme right to degrade, dismiss, and belittle other people's opinion and facts. If people want to continue to buy into your conservative extremism opinions as the truth, nothing but the truth...so be it. BUT I KNOW IT ISN'T.
I have another posting coming regarding your taxpayer claims. Meanwhile...talk amongst yourselves...
Are food stamps at a record setting high? Yes (Now, personally...I don't actually care about this statement in a way similar I don't care about Obama's "oil production" statement because in both cases every year or two there's typically a new "record setting high" because its continually growing).
It points out that more people were put on food stamps under Bush than undre Obama....14.7 to 14.2 million. HOWEVER, it ALSO points out that its comparing Bush's 8 years to Obama's 3 years. So in 3 years Obama has seen .5 less millison.
So as your article points out, the RATE of growht is substantially higher with Obama. Bush added an average of roughly 1.8 million a year during his term. Thus far the rate of increaes for Obama is 4.7 million. Could that go down over time? Absolutely...but if you're FORCING us, as the website is doing, of taking a snapshot then you have to rightfully look at the fact they're taking 8 years of numbers and comparing it to 3.
So while you may be able to laugh that on a technicality Newt's statement wasn't correct, the generalized message behind his statement is actually shown pretty clearly from your own link. Increasing food stamp recipients at a pace of nearly 4 Million more a year than Bush is hardly something to at

"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Do the facts get in the way of your rhetoric? Conservatives have tried over and over again to use the same tactics of tax cutting and regulation smashing to help the economy. For the last 50 years every Conservative that took office, ran up our deficit to higher and higher levels. This year we have Conservatives asking to once again do exactly what they did in previous years, yet telling us the results will be different this time. 100% nonsense.
If it's not clear to you yet that the Conservative view of tax cutting (without balancing the budget) and regulations smashing (without understanding the ramifications of such actions) doesn't work well, then you've been living in the cone of silence your entire life.
A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.
What you seem to always ignore and that is a problem with liberals like you, people keeping more of what they earn don't need a 3.8 trillion dollar Federal govt. no matter how much money goes to the Federal Govt. they are going to spend it so given that why do you have a problem with keeping more of what you earn? What you and all liberals do is buy the rhetoric of a liberal President and ignore the results of that same President.
i am still waiting for how Govt. Federal income tax and corporate tax revenue grew after both the Bush and Reagan tax cuts? In the liberal world that would be impossible. We have 24 million unemployed/under employed Americans today and approximately 54 million income earning households paying little if any Federal Income Taxes yet liberals want to raise the taxes on the top 1% that are now paying 37% of the FIT being collected. Do you realize how dumb that is?
I know quite well how keeping more of what I earn works, I pay down debt and need less govt. I give more to charity and my church, I put money aside so I don't need you to take care of me when I get older. Too bad you don't understand the concept. Is that what the educatino system in NY has taught you?
