And he wants to be in charge of the economy. Well, it is said that he and Callista are running things. LOL

I doubt he ever had much of a chance in Utah anyway.

Conservatives will have to do better than settling on an old fool like Newt. He and Callista aren’t too wise.

He has no way of winning anything. Geesh

What’s $500 compared to 1.5 trillion a year?

It doesn’t matter, in fact, if you are unable to manage a 500 buck payment without a rubber check, a person should be embarrassed to call themself a conservative.

If a person does not have the money to write a check, you do not write a check. Easy, right?

I suggest Newt save the money. He ain’t competitive in Utah. Now if had had his three wives at the same time, he could have been the man to beat.

Maybe he shoulda spent his $500 trying to get on the ballot in Virginia.

Not a biggie. Romney is like 0bama. Big Rev. Wright and Van Jones fan. Hates white Christians and loves the Muslim Brotherhood. I’m sitting this one out.

He could always Pawn some of those Diamonds he purchased at Tiffanys. In fact, he could show up at “Pawn Stars” Pawn shop.
The producers would love to film him pawning his Tiffany Diamonds.

It’s a double win for Gingrich:

He gets money to get on the Utah ballot by pawning his Tiffany diamonds and he gets FREE publicity from being on
the pawn stars TV show.

You can cross a line through his name if that makes you happy— but Newt is still in.

Sorry, that’s just the way it is.

I;m talking about a solution for Newt to drum up the $500
he needs to get on the Utah ballot. Plus get free publicity
for being on the “Pawn Stars” TV show.

I’m sure u have heard of the show. It’s called “Pawn Stars”
It’s TV show about a Pawn Shop in Vegas.

On the contrary, I'm very unhappy Newt has done so poorly during this primary season. I would have supported him in an instant over Willard.

But he hasn't exactly been setting the world on fire, has he.

You’re correct.
As a matter of fact Newt did poorly in the south vs a couple of yankees.

I’m no fan of Romney.
But it’s a hard fact that Newt performed poorly across the south.
Third place finishes in Ok and Tn, and losses to Santorum in Al and Ms.
