Rolly: Newt Gingrich stiffs Utah

By paul rolly

First Published 6 hours ago • Updated 2 hours ago

Five Republicans have filed the necessary papers and $500 fee to qualify for the June 26 Utah presidential primary election, but with Rick Santorum dropping out of the race Tuesday, only four will be on the ballot.

Or possibly three.
Newt Gingrich’s check bounced.

Utah Elections Director Mark Thomas said a designated agent for the Gingrich campaign brought the filing papers and a check for $500 in March, but the state was notified by the bank that the check had bounced. He said the office has tried to contact the Gingrich campaign through the telephone number and email provided on the application, but has not received a response.

Recently, the state sent a certified letter to the campaign, stating that if the fee isn’t paid by April 20, Gingrich will be disqualified and will not be on the ballot.

Newt is done, folks. The preordained match-up between Obama and Romney has officially begun. Everything between now and Romney's official nomination is but a sideshow. It's a done deal and has been for months.

That's sad.
I still like Newt but he has overstayed his welcome in this primary.

Sadly this isn't a dinner party. This is an election that will literally make or break America as a nation (Rock is right). If Romney is the guy, we had better make damned sure that conservatives maintain and increase control of the House and that we take a super-majority control of the Senate. Failing that, I think that we may be fucked.

He is a populist, if we make more noise than the libs and moderates he'll listen to us if they make more noise, well you no the game.

Newts campaign was dogged from the beginning. Folks couldn't figure out why Newt with his background and political savvy did not have the Infrastructure usually associated and seen as needed to run an effective presidential bid. Him and his silly ass "I'm running a different kind of campaign".

Well he was right about that.

I was diagnosed with PDD at a early age,which is a autism spectrum disorder that includes disorders like Aspergers.

Asperger syndrome (AS) is a developmental disorder that is characterized by: 1

limited interests or an unusual preoccupation with a particular subject to the exclusion of other activities

repetitive routines or rituals
peculiarities in speech and language, such as speaking in an overly formal manner or in a monotone, or taking figures of speech literally
socially and emotionally inappropriate behavior and the inability to interact successfully with peers
problems with non-verbal communication, including the restricted use of gestures, limited or inappropriate facial expressions, or a peculiar, stiff gaze
clumsy and uncoordinated motor movements

In school,i was even in Special Olympics and put in a special class.

Good. You understand who Jimi Hendrix was. In political circles, Newt Gingrich is as well-known as Jimi Hendrix was in guitar circles. This is a political forum and thread. Not knowing who Gingrich is marks you as hopelessly ignorant about politics, and therefore, hopelessly out of touch with the subjects that we discuss here. Do you understand the words that I am typing?

Okay, you need to understand something. This forum is for discussions of political issues and those of us who post here are interested in discussing politics. Please try to understand that this is not meant maliciously, but you really do not fit in here, not because of your politics or opinions, but because you don't know enough to discuss the issues and you are not interested in them, so you are unlikely to learn anything from us. You simply repeat the same things over and over, or make observations that have nothing to do with the subject at hand. You really need to find another board, or stop posting on subjects that you don't know anything about.
