AUDIO of Mehta & Gingrich

Mehta: “With the fundraising quarter coming to a close, what…”

Gingrich: “See, I knew you couldn’t resist. I’m not going to answer you. I think you should, you should really go home and think about why you would even ask that today.”

    I have to agree with Newt; what does campaign funds have to do with the monumental changes that need to occur in our government and economy?

  3. See, if it were me asking the question, I would not need to go home and ponder why I asked it. I would have asked the question because I would have already been asking myself a hundred times over why Newt was a candidate in the first place, why Newt still considers himself a candidate today, and what I had done to my editor that I was assigned to cover Newt’s candidacy. The idea of whether Newt had any money to actually conduct a credible campaign would have naturally occurred to me.

  4. Maybe he asked the question because the sign board Newt is standing next to looks like it was made ten minutes earlier at Kinko’s.

  5. Is noone else getting tired of Newt’s childish petulance? The man doesn’t like to get called out on his flip-flopping, hypocrisy, and failures. That’s absolutely fair game.

    Newt Gingrich is a slimy creature, and he tries very hard to intimidate journalists against calling him out for his discrepancies. For some reason, the Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity types seem to love it, but any candidate who is running a disappointing campaign will get asked about it. Newt thinks he has some right to run without any challenge.
