Republican presidential race turns sour
Source: BBC

The Republican presidential race has turned ugly as the candidates elbow their way towards a crucial month of primary elections.

Adopting a sharper tone, Newt Gingrich said if rival Mitt Romney became the nominee, he would be laughed at by President Barack Obama in TV debates.

Ron Paul was forced to repudiate an ad endorsing him and suggesting Jon Huntsman had been brainwashed by China. <snip>

When asked what he would say if invited to speak at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People , Mr Gingrich took the opportunity to attack Mr Obama's economic policies, calling him the "food stamp president".

2. I read an interesting article about Mitt today. He has NEVER visited his relatives in Mexico. Never
As you may know, his grandfather or great grandfather moved there because Utah was prosecuting Mormon "bigamists," which Mitt describes as "fleeing religious persecutiion." His father was born there. He has first cousins who still live there. He has never visited. '


What a cold, calculating @#$$! he is.

5. How cold blooded do you have to be never to visit uncles, aunts and cousins?
Doesn't speak well of his Dad, either. He spent his early years there. Wonder if he ever visited without Willard?

I had read George Romney's wiki and was about as favorably impressed as I have ever been with a Republican (after Abe Lincoln, anyway). Was wishing Willard was more like his father. However, if George never visited either, that says a lot IMO.

Then again, I was very close with my first cousins on my Dad's side and their parents, so maybe my perspective is unusual.
