Newt Gingrich, a former employee of Fox News, accuses Australian Rupert Murdoch of trying to steer the election towards Mitt Romney.
Newt says “In our experience, Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than Fox this year. We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of Fox, and we’re more likely to get distortion out of Fox. That’s just a fact.”
“If Rep. Ryan thinks a budget that takes food and healthcare away from millions of vulnerable people upholds Catholic values, then he also probably believes Jesus was a Tea Partier who lectured the poor to stop being so lazy and work harder,” said Gehring. “This budget turns centuries of Catholic social teaching on its head. These Catholic leaders and many Catholics in the pews are tired of faith being misused to bless an immoral agenda.”

Newt, the fiscal conservative, saving taxpayers money!
Businessweek notes that the Newt Gingrich is costing taxpayers $40,000 a DAY in Secret Service protection:
"His think tank went bankrupt. His campaign is $4.3 million in debt. He doesn’t hold a prayer of beating Mitt Romney, something he has all but conceded. And yet since March 6th, the Secret Service has honored his request for protection at a cost to taxpayers of roughly $40,000 a day (or, to translate that into a metric Newt might favor, enough to supply 13,333 people a day with food stamps).
Candidates must meet certain benchmarks earn Secret Service protection. Oddly, though, once protection has been awarded, there is no level of support beneath which it gets revoked. Newt will only stop leeching off taxpayers when Romney becomes the nominee or when he voluntarily gives up his security detail. But the latter option would be an admission that his campaign is hopeless."
Even then, Newt got bit by a penguin last week.
Still waiting for your SuperPenguinPowers to kick in, newt!!!!!!

8. Replace janitors with child after school janitors
9. declared "I wasn't paid to be a lobbyist for Fannie Mae…I was a 'historian'"
10. wants 13,000 permanent colonists on the moon
11. Calling Barack Obama the 'food stamp president' even though Bush had more Americans on food stamps
12. a half-million-dollar Tiffany's account
and the winner is:
13. Newt: I cheated around on all my wives because I love America TOO much!
A real Family Values man! Evidenced by his daughter from his first marriage disavowing what his 2nd wife said, whom Newt wanted to have an open marriage with while cheating with Calista, who now must, by definition, be in an open marriage....
Now that Newt's out, how long before Calista is gone?

Shep Smith, Fox News, said it best, reading Rmoney's statement about Mitt loving the man who called him a liar.
"Mitt Romney has released a statement on the departure of Newt Gingrich from the campaign. It reads in part, "Ann and I are glad to call Newt and Callista friends. We look forward to working with them in the months and years ahead."
Shep continues about the Rmoney Newts: "That from Mitt Romney. Politics is weird. And creepy. And now I know lacks even the loosest attachment to anything like reality."

I find it humorous that Gingrich talks about how the press is biased, but I can't disagree with him. I knew it years ago. I just think it has been more obvious this election cycle. The Bush Crime family has endorsed Romney like 3 times during the campaign. That should have been a hint to conservatives who the REPUBLICAN ELITEST ESTABLISHMENT WAS GOING TO SHOVE DOWN THE THROATS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. The south new he wasn't conservative, but the establishment funded several SO-CALLED CONSERVATIVES TO SPLIT THE VOTE. Gingrich (not a Conservative) was funded by the elitests from Nevada (?Adelson? family) and Santorum (not a Conservative) was funded by two elitests Foster Freeze and a guy named Dor (?spelling), while everybody was ignoring the only true conservative in the race, Ron Paul. The smearing of Paul was amazing to hear from the bought and paid for "mainstream" media. The way they downplayed his importance through the whole nomination and debates would made Pravda proud.
P.S. Imagine how good a job the media would do on Jesus if he was running against their establishment bosses. The love of money and power trumps anything else these days, doesn't it?
P.S. If the establishment (They are socialists people.) thinks that true conservatives would vote for a Massachusetts SOCIALIST, they don't have much respect for the Republican conservatives at all. Unfortunately, they (the NEOCONS) were been proven right with the elections of the Bush (THE BUSH CRIME FAMILY IS FROM CONNECTICUT, NOT TEXAS. EVEN GW WAS BORN IN CONNECTICUT, NOT TEXAS. HOW DID YOU TEXANS FALL FOR THEIR SCAMS?) crime families GW and GHW Bush. Atleast we didn't get stuck with the IDIOT PERRY FROM TEXAS, RIGHT?
