Stick a fork in him

"Former House speaker Newt Gingrich had a second line of credit at the high-end jewelry store Tiffany and Co. for as much as $1 million dollars, his presidential campaign acknowledged Tuesday."

Newt. It's over. Seriously. The man in Iowa was prescient when he told Newt to "get out before he embarrasses himself." If only he had listened.

I know a year is an eternity in politics but I can't see how he could possibly recover from this.

He should stay in. The more RINOs are in there the more likely one of the conservatives-Bachmann, Cain, or dare I say Palin-can beat out Mitt for the nomination. Hell at this stage I wouldn't be surprised if Christine O'Donnell was to decide to run. I'd hit that once.

At the polling place, I mean. I'd vote for her there.

I keep reading in other blogs how the GOP has a strong field. These candidates aren't really all that exciting. I like Chris Christie, Allen West, Marc Rubio and a few others but they're not running. My fear is we're going to field a weak candidate (Yes Mitt I'm looking at you) and he's going to be a watered down version of what we had last time. More big government, slightly less taxing and spending and a milquetoast foreign policy.

His campaign was over before it started -- but seriously, who gives a damn where he has a charge account as long as he pays his bills?

I don't care that he had the charge account. It is, indeed, his money. It is however, unseemly to the vast majority of voters in this economy. It makes him look like he's completely out of touch.

Agree...don't really care about this...unfortunately he has so much other dirty laundry that the media would hound on....this is a great, probably the greatest ideas man. Would love to see him have some sort of role in the next Republican admin.

I'd rather see him as an elder statesman consigliere type. Just work behind the scenes. Hell, put him in charge of policy at the GOP for all I care. Keep him out of elective office. He has poor judgement
