Santorum Says He'll Reach Out To Minority Communities By Talking About Something Other Than Food...

Source: TPM

TROY, MICHIGAN -- At a speech before a tea party crowd brought here by Americans For Prosperity Saturday, Rick Santorum promised to attract votes in minority communities by promising them something other than food stamps.

" talk to minority communities not about giving them more food stamps and government dependency, but about creating jobs so that they can participate in the rise of this country," Santorum told the crowd. The line drew big applause from the overwhelmingly white audience.

Connecting minorities too food stamps -- or at least appearing to do so -- has landed Santorum in hot water before. Back in Iowa, he was caught on tape saying what appeared to be "I donít want to make black peopleís lives better by giving them somebody elseís money. I want to give them the opportunity to go out and earn the money and provide for themselves and their families."

He later explained he was saying "blah people".

3. No, but the kind of people that believe that ALL black people are on food

stamps and expect government dependency will be!!
This kind of talk gets the votes even if there is someone right outside the door stating more poor whites are on food stamps than blacks or hispancs,
it doesnt matter they wont hear of it- not interested in facts
It is simple hatemongering in the name of ...
Jesus

9. Rickys' Exchange Program: Food Stamps for "Values Vouchers"

Yes, you will go hungry but once you wear those values on your sleeve you'll be 100% free from the hellish nightmare of being snagged in the insidious government safety net. The forfeited food stamps will be returned directly to the U.S. Treasury with their cash equivalent value going to subsidize Big Ag. We checked with the Ag folks and since they didn't seem to have much use for the Values Vouchers, preferring hard gov't cash, we have accomodated their request. As a secondary benefit, liberal Class Warfare is now 100% dead and buried, Kaputski. This program is definitely WIN-WIN for everyone involved!!!
