    This picture is completely revolting. I always thought that the GOP ate their young, not poor defenseless piglets.

    One just wishes it was Newt Gingrich on that table. He's the real pig in the race.

    As President, I hope Romney will attack Pork in Washinton in much the same manner.

    I though it was a metaphor for Mitt ripping on the Newtster.

    I thought the title of this picture was just a metaphor for Mitt insulting the Newtster.

    I saw this title and thought Romney finally snapped and knifed Gingrich.

    The title just begs the question....is this a subtle reference to a Romney attack on the Newt?

  10. Hehehehehe

    Is there a hidden meaning to be found in the title?

    other vs. Cubans: Is There A Double Standard On Illegal Aliens?

    Seems like a double standard. If you come from Cuba you are granted automatic residency, but if you come from other countries you need to have the proper documentation

    to the GOP Cubans on the ballot means nothing to the general populationof the Hispanic community. Most Latin Americans don't like Cubans

    Is their a double standard regarding illegal aliens when it comes to Cubans entering the US?>

    I expected an article about Romney criticizing Gingrich.

    OMG! Romney eats pork too? For sure he can't be president now! What a scandal!

    Whew!! That scared the stuffin' outta me. I thought for a second that was poor ol' Seamus. Well the pig is brown like the dog, ok!! Only for a second. As 'President, Romney' he would have an expansive view of what can be cut and be profitable while he's in the White House. Oh yeah, profitable. The money would not be tied to him and could go into a blind trust that he knows nothing about. And what of the workers? Oh well.
