Oh boy! Newt Gingrich causes controversy once again on the campaign trail with some controversial comments about food stamps after saying President Obama is the “greatest food stamp president” in history. Read the response from the NAACP and Newt’s reaction to their reaction after the jump.
“It is a shame that the former speaker feels that these types of inaccurate, divisive statements are in any way helpful to our country. The majority of people using food stamps are not African-American, and most people using food stamps have a job.” – NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous
“I think you would have to be nuts to read those two paragraphs to conclude anything except that I was saying that every young American deserves the right to pursue happiness, every young American deserves the right to get a job.” – Newt Gingrich
