I seem to remember Newt and the Republican’s demise happening when The Bent one (with much media assistance) accused them of starving federal employees when they shut down the government.
Did I miss something? I thought Newt’s indiscretions were before this time?
Conservatives never have the stomach for indecent behavior..especially when it happens in our own ranks.
If you remember, Newt’s image was tarnished by his indiscretions especially with Christian Conservatives. He was no longer thought to be beyond reproach. The media played on it bigtime and prefaced every report about Newt with a mention of his “problems”. From then on his message was lost.
