Gingrich Promises The Moon After Promising The Moon

In his Florida "concession" speech losing GOP candidate Newt "I'll Promise You Anything" Gingrich told his supporter the things he will do once elected President, and pledged his "life, wealth, and sacred honor" to someone who would presumably want that.

Romney Says He Isn’t Concerned For “Very Poor”

Leading Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said in an interview with CNN Wednesday “I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs repair, I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich; they’re doing just fine. I’m concerned about the very heart of America, the 90%, 95% of Americans right now who are struggling, and I’ll continue to take that message across the nation.”

Democrat pundits quickly pounced on the statement, calling it a moment of honesty in which Romney revealed the GOP attitude toward the poor: they aren’t going to vote Republican anyway, so who cares?

Struggling second-place candidate Newt Gingrich was quick to assert his ultra-conservative credentials in the wake of Romney’s statement. “I’m the only true conservative in this race” Gingrich said. “No one cares less about poor people than me!”
