Mr. Romney, please explain in detail how $56 million diverted from safety measures to incentive bonuses really is a victory for all Americans in pursuing their American dream in this, the greatest country on earth and the shining city on the hill.

Mr. Gingrich, please explain in detail why a culture of dependency and moral laxity is inculcated among the poor by $200 a month in food stamps, but why it is not inculcated by millions of dollars of "diverted" funds among the executives of the Pacific Gas and Electric Company.
