What kind of day does one have when the Top New Story for all the networks and websites is you being abandoned?
That's a pretty bad day. CNN sent me a text this morning about Newt Gingrich's top aides in 3 states as well as his campaign manager as well as 4 others resigning. All on one day.
They cited differences in the vision for the campaign. Basically, these seasoned people who run campaigns are jumping ship cause Newt isn't listening to them.
He doesn't strike me as a person who's particularly in tune with those outside his immediate circle. He's probably got a lot of people around him who respect him and what he does and are constantly telling him how successful he'd be in the top position in the country.
I don't know anything about how good he'd be in that position. You'll never know til that person is there. But what I do know is national polls don't agree with that sentiment. America on a whole doesn't think Newt is awesome.
And he's had a really crappy day. Can you tell from the tone of this post that I actually feel kind of bad for him?
I mostly feel bad because he's not taking this situation for what it is. It's a sign that his time has passed and the people he was counting on are jumping ship. He doesn't even have the string quartet playing a soundtrack for this sinking ship.
But at least his wife is by his side, standing in the delusion that this will end well for him.
Democrats should be so lucky that Newt Gingrich would get the GOP nomination. They should be so lucky.
