    Gingrich just wants all the food for himself.

    Gingrich knows about food. Just look at him.

    Maybe he should be on the Cooking channel instead of the nightly news...

    USDA Lets Retailers Convicted of Food Stamp Fraud Stay in Food Stamp Program
    March 8, 2012 -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) does not have a policy to ban food stamp retailers from the food stamp program even when they have been convicted of defrauding the government of benefits because it is costly, according to government auditors.

    Food Stamp Program Doesn’t Check SSNs of Some Recipients
    March 8, 2012 -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture-administered food stamp program does not check the Social Security Number (SSNs) of some of its 46.3 million recipients, many of whom are using the numbers of dead people and invalid SSNs to get benefits potentially totaling $1.1 million a month, according to a government audit.

    The OP proves the contention that Obama is indeed the "Food Stamp President". How is it fair to add together HW Bush and W Bush? Why not Clinton and Bush? Even so, 2 presidents with 12 years in office added only slight more people to the food stamp roles than Obama in 3 years.
    Yes, this proves it: Obama is the Food Stamp President. Unprecedented poverty in his term. Unprecedented unemployment. Unprecedented slow recovery. Unprecedented low workforce participation. Unprecendented downgrade of US debt.
    He is the biggest failure as president since Aristide of Haiti.

    The only reason Obama can be called "The Food Stamp President" is the total meltdown of the economy and the crooks on Wall St. which were left there by the Bush bunch. It ain't rocket science:

    'Course George Bush had to avenge the assassination attempt on his father in 1993.
