    Top Gingrich Aides Resign, Leaving Campaign in Question

    I think it won't be long until we're talking about Newt in the past tense.

    I see it as a good thing.

    Newt is very intelligent, but that scandle of him cheating on his wife is more baggage than I can overlook.

    Top Gingrich Aides Resign, Leaving Campaign in Question - FoxNews.com
    Top aides to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich have resigned en masse, Fox News has learned, imperiling the Republican's 2012 presidential campaign at a crucial time.

    Among the senior staff members Gingrich is losing are spokesman Rick Tyler and campaign manager Rob Johnson, along with other strategists. Insiders say Gingrich and senior aides were unable to agree on the direction of the campaign.

    The exodus puts the former House speaker, who already had been struggling to rank in early GOP primary polls, in a tough spot. He was one of the first major candidates to officially launch his campaign, but several other GOP heavyweights have followed suit in recent weeks

    Am I reading that right? Top "aides" to Gingrich's campaign are leaving, not just one aid? Wow!?!

    I wonder what's really going on in the Gingrich camp?

    I had almost forgot he was still running, to be honest.

    I'm a bad conservative.

    I'm hearing it's his entire team... they all just picked up and went. If his own team leaves this early into a campaign? Gingrich is done.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    He had no chance. Just as Santorum has no chance. At least the Gingrich camp won't be wasting anyone's time moving forward. Santorum and a few others will stay deluded for a while longer.

    I just saw an article where GOP consultants speculate that Newt's guys are jumping ship to team up with Rick Perry.

    Can anyone think of a national campaign in recent political history that has self-destructed as quickly and as visibly as this one?

    Does Newt even make it to Iowa?

    Visibly? Howard Dean comes to mind.
