Governor Rick Perry accuses President Obama of leading a “war on religion” in his latest ad, a thirty second spot airing in Iowa that also condemns gays serving openly the military and regulations on school prayer.
After a meeting with Newt Gingrich in Manhattan this morning, Donald Trump announced plans to start an ‘Apprentice’-style program for children from New York City’s poorest schools. The idea, apparently hatched during their meeting, is an extension of Gingrich’s scheme to hire poor schoolchildren for jobs typically occupied by adults — including janitor and librarian — because, as he put it last week, these kids “have no habit of showing up on Monday; they have no habit of staying all day; they have no habit of ‘I do this and you give me cash’ — unless it’s illegal.”
Newt Gingrich has released his first television ad of the campaign, an optimistic rebuttal to anyone who thinks “the America we know and love is a thing of the past.” Set to air in Iowa this week, the spot mixes uplifting music (from the soundtrack to the film Rudy) and imagery — wheat fields, a picket-fence home flying an American flag, factory workers, the Iowa State Capitol building — with footage of Gingrich making the case that “together…we can rebuild America”:
Jon Huntsman has published a new web ad hammering Romney for changing, if not his stance, then at least his tone on key campaign issues.

The organization Conservatives4Palin is running an ad in Sioux City, Iowa, this week urging Sarah Palin to reconsider running for president in 2012.
An hour after Herman Cain announced on live television that he expected to soon face another accusation of infidelity, Atlanta’s FOX 5 news aired a segment with a local woman named Ginger White who claimed to have engaged in a thirteen-year affair with the Republican presidential candidate.
Herman Cain was scheduled to appear on CNN’s “The Situation Room” this afternoon to talk about his “9-9-9″ tax plan and his new, six-minute animated video, “9-9-9: The Movie,” which advocates for his alternative to the “dorky mechanical monster” that he says symbolizes the federal tax code.
