Mitt Romney is a Mormon! (Mitt Romney Attack Ad)

On Wednesday, Newt Gingrich slammed Obama's State of the Union speech calling it "empty promises". In a state of unemployment where houses are worth less than mortgages and foreclosures are a problem, Gingrich said, Obama's words are empty and he ran on "yes we can", but ran on a year of divisiveness, not getting anything done.

Gingrich says that a gap between the President's speech and what he does different later on. You never know what Obama is going to do differently with his policies.

And on Thursday, Gingrich slams Romney as being partially responsible for Florida's foreclosure meltdown, and Romney points a finger at Gingrich claiming he "supports amnesty for illegal immigrants. Gingrich does advocate allowing some to gain legal status, but only those who resided in the U.S. for years. Many of these attacks are correct but the negativity make it seems like something else.
