The Republicans are eating their own.
Here's the text of a last minute "robocall" made by the Gingrich campaign to Florida voters:
"As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney vetoed a bill paying for kosher food for our seniors in nursing homes — Holocaust survivors, who for the first time were forced to eat non-kosher, because Romney thought $5 was too much to pay for our grandparents to eat kosher. Where is Mitt Romney’s compassion for our seniors? Tuesday you can end Mitt Romney’s hypocrisy on religious freedom with a vote for Newt Gingrich. Paid for by Newt 2012."
After the damage had been done, Joe DeSantis, an aide to Gingrich, told a Wall Street Journal correspondent the recorded message did not go through the "normal vetting process." DeSantis also said, “It should have been caught.”
Translation: "Yea, it was shameless, but too late now."
Is this the main course, or an appetizer?
Here's what Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told The Daily Caller:
“It’s sad to see Speaker Gingrich lashing out in a desperate attempt to try and save his floundering campaign. Speaker Gingrich will say anything to distract voters from the fact that he suffered an unprecedented ethics reprimand, was forced to pay a $300,000 penalty, and resigned in disgrace at the hands of his own party. His record is one of failed and unreliable leadership and simply one Americans can’t risk.”
Pass the BBQ sauce?
Serve all of this up now, and there won't be anything left when President Obama gets to the dinner table.
