As Newt Gingrich ends his run for the White House, he shows us what real fiscal conservatives look like:
Newt Gingrich ends his White House dream today with his political committee facing a mountain of debts — owing about $4 million to scores of businesses and campaign workers around the country who fear they will never get paid.
Campaign watchdogs said the size of Gingrich’s debt is extraordinary — and could have been avoided if the candidate and his team had been more disciplined.
“He was reckless in running up these bills, especially in the last month or so of the campaign when it was quite clear that Mitt Romney would be the nominee,” said Craig Holman, a government affairs lobbyist for the watchdog group Citizen Union.
This is common place among conservatives. We hear them preach about “living within your means” and “accepting personal responsibility”, yet they never practice it. I’m sure as time goes on the excuses that Newt gives us will continue to amaze. His only real hope is for Mitt Romney to offer to pay off his debt in exchange for an endorsement or maybe sell back some of that stuff he bought at Tiffany’s
