Seriously, go read the whole breakdown of last night’s debate.
And people pay him these fees! Often the same people who complain about their taxes being “wasted”!
I’ve been saying this forever. Newt Gingrich doesn’t want to be president. Never has, never will. He’s got way too much dirty laundry and he’s way too in love with money to care to do so.
It’s like LeBron and the dunk contest, he’s got nothing to gain and everything to lose.
This entire campaign for him is nothing more than a year long advertisement and credit builder for his up coming book(s), speaking arrangements, consultation fees, all sorts of board membership offers and various other ways for him to make money without doing much of anything.
And if that’s not enough, you know that he is going to keep the millions of dollars that he’s been holding off on spending from his war chest and Super PACs. All he has to do is donate it to a charity of his choice (wink, wink) and then pay himself handsomely for speaking appearances and “management” fees.
It’s all one big charade for him. His end game isn’t the Oval Office, it’s a golden office in his own personal home.
