    Gingrich's think tank files for bankruptcy

    The Gingrich Group, also known as the Center for Health Transformation, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in federal court in Atlanta on Wednesday. The bankruptcy filing marks an abrupt turn for a group that raised millions of dollars just a few years ago to support and promote Gingrich's health care ideas.
    OK, so tell me how someone who allows one of his businesses to go bankrupt has the knowledge to save America's economy. Someone want to tell me again why is he running for President? So, maybe he is not really the best choice for Republicans. What do Gingrich supports have to say about this? Will you guys now pick either Santorum or Romney?

    Not too surprising, given that it was recommending a health insurance mandate when Newt started running all over the country claiming that the mandate was sent from hell.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    -- Adam Smith

    He's extremely intelligent. Running is a form of branding and will give him a lot of revenue. Tiffany's ain't a cheap place to shop.

    Thomas Jefferson, Ulysses S. Grant, Harry Truman, and Newt Gingrich.

    Given Gingrich's "cheating" on his first 2 wives and the 84 ethics charges that he received while serving as Speaker, "bankrupt" appears to be the operative word - morally "bankrupt" that is!

    ... I bet you if Obama had declared bankruptcy or even knew somebody who didn't pay their taxes apdst would be all over it.
