Newt Gingrich Still Delusional About Nomination Despite Staff Layoffs
Matt | On 28, Mar 2012
Newt Gingrich is retooling his anemic campaign for the presidency in a few different ways.
First, he has begun to address the mounting debts that come with running his campaign
into the ground. His answer was to start charging supporters $50 each to take a photo with him.
Now, he is laying off one-third of his staff to take some of the pressure off of the balance sheet that contains $1.55 million in debt, according to Politico. His team claims that he is refocusing his campaign on “what it’ll take to win” as the Tampa convention approaches in August.
Let me share a little secret. It will take a strong act of God Almighty to ensure Newt Gingrich is the nominee in August. At this rate, I might be the GOP nominee before him and I’m not even a Republican.
Newt Gingrich is prideful and delusional about this ever-so-public beating he is taking in the primaries. Many people don’t relate to him. The problems in his campaign are an outward reflection of inner turmoil. If Newt cannot even be honest about himself and his chances, how can the general public expect to believe him on major issues?
Any reference to Gingrich related to the Tampa convention is laughable at best. Because of his prior political standing, he is guaranteed access to some great seating at the event. Beyond that, becoming the presidential nominee should be the furthest thing from his mind.
