    Newt Gingrich today laid into Romney today for his record at Bain Capital, suggesting Romney got rich off others’ misery and alluding to Romney’s ill-thought-out $10,000 bet from Saturday’s debate. “I would just say if Governor Romney would like to give back all the money he has earned from bankrupting and laying off employees over his years at Bain, then I would be glad to then listen to him, and I bet you $10 -- not $10,000 -- that he wouldn’t take the offer,” Gingrich said. The remarks came in response to Romney’s criticism of the money Gingrich earned working...

    Washington Post. 10/19/2011. "Obama still flush with cash from financial sector despite frosty relations" Obama raked in $76,600 dollars from Bain Capital employees through September - to Romney's $34,000. Why is it then that the MSM won't call Obama on this? In that WaPo article, Obama has raked in $15.6 million (around $12 mil going to the Democratic Party, which can use it to help reelect Obama) to Romney's $7.9 million in the current election cycle. Add up all Wall Street donations to all GOP candidates combined, and it won't equal what Obama has pulled in. Where is Occupy Wall...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The developer of an Islamic cultural center that opened Wednesday evening near the site of the terrorist attacks that leveled the World Trade Center says the biggest error on the project was not involving the families of 9/11 victims from the start. People crowded into the center, where a small orchestra played traditional Middle Eastern instruments and a photo exhibit of New York children of different ethnicities lined the walls. The enthusiasm at the opening belied its troubled beginnings. snip He called opposition to the center - which prompted one of the most virulent national discussions...

    September 21 at 6:30 PM, the Ground Zero Mosque will open its doors to show a photo exhibit in its community space. Park51 is hoping to discourage its opponents by declaring an early victory in spite of its recent embarrassments and setbacks. This grand opening does not mean that the fight is over. The project still has a long way to go until completion.
