Just Say "Oops" and Get Out!

This may be the fastest implosion of a presidential campaign in US history.

Newt Gingrich's campaign manager and numerous other key aides have resigned together, a strong blow to his hopes for the Republican presidential nomination.
Gingrich press spokesman Rick Tyler told The Associated Press that he's resigned along with campaign manager Rob Johnson, senior strategists and aides in key early primary states.
And I don't blame them. What serious candidate blames his extramarital affairs with two previous wives on his hard work and patriotism, has a half a million dollar rolling account at Tiffany's while touting fiscal conservatism, gets destroyed in a moment of clarity for criticizing the Paul Ryan budget and his Vouchercare program but soon backtracks after the backlash and says anyone who uses his words against him are liars, and decides to go on vacation just a couple of weeks after kicking off his campaign on YouTube?

Just says oops and get out. NEXT!

He never meant his campaign to be serious,Newt,like Palin is more intersted in marketing their brand out there so they can sell books and get over paid for making speeches by their clueless followers.Hes not gonna quit for at least two months so he doesn't get labeled for being the miserable failure that he is.
The funny part about the whole thing is,the media and a lot of republicans would've given him respect and praise if he had stuck to the criticism he made of the Ryan budget on Meet The Press.Instead, he takes a beating not just for being honest,but for lying.He still hasn't learned his lesson when they kicked him out as speaker.
As for you die hard Newt supporters,buy a fucking clue or go get some therapy!
