Affinnova Advises Romney; Obama Accused of Serving 'Crap Sandwich'
The latest food-related news from the campaign trail
Affinnova, Inc., a company that uses algorithms originally designed for genetic research to advise food companies on consumer product issues (like product and label designs), is now claiming that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney may have made a mistake by not choosing a female running mate.
According to Affinnova’s research, Condoleezza Rice would have made a prime running mate for Romney because strong political women widely appeal to this year’s swing voters. Traditionally, the company uses its research to help companies like Unilever and Post Foods market their products to consumers.
In anticipation of the GOP Convention, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) said in an interview with Fox News on Saturday that President Obama is feeding America "a crap sandwich," referring to his policies, which include increasing the numbers of Americans on food stamps. Elaborating on his comment, West went on to say, "Let’s be very honest and let’s put this in military vernacular, if you’re feeding a person a crap sandwich with a smile, it’s still a crap sandwich."
