  Newt Gingrich has racked up a huge bill at Tiffany's, the jeweler, $500,000.  Our ever attentive media is on the case.  Frankly, folks, do I care what a former politician and his wife do with their money, or what a current politician is doing with mine?  I, frankly, couldn't care less that Gingrich has a $500,000 bill at Tiffany.  More power to him.  If his wife likes stuff at Tiffany, and Newt wants to buy stuff from Tiffany for his wife and has an account there, so be it.  Should I care about Newt and his wife's jewelry purchases or should I care that Obama sat in a bigoted church for 20 years and probably did hear what was being said?  Should we care about the lies and distortions being told of us by this regime about our financial circumstance? 


I disagree with Rush here.......... this goes to Newt's own fiscal responsibility as a sign of how he might operate as POTUS......

Wait a second!  It doesn't say anywhere that the account is in collection.

Secondly, it's his wife's account, not his.

Rush is correct, IMO.

No, it was his account, Calista had to report it because they have joint accounts requiring her to report both parties debts.
