DOVER, DE – Given the opportunity to work in Mitt Romney’s cabinet, Newt Gingrich says he would pass.
Asked by a radio host inside a small diner whether he would work for a Romney administration if given the opportunity, Gingrich answered “probably not” but “not because I am opposed to Mitt.”
“Look, if the choice does end up being Romney versus Obama, I can be very, very enthusiastic for Romney, that is a huge choice. But I had a very good life doing a lot of fun things,” the former House speaker said. “I am very happy to be an adviser. I did a lot of that in the Bush administration both on health care and national security.”
Romney seems to have all but sealed the nomination – he still has not reached the 1,144 delegate count threshold – but Gingrich says he has more explaining to do.
Once a grifter, always a grifter.
By NBC’s Alex Moe HOCKESSIN, Del. – Marking the first presidential candidate visit to Delaware this cycle, Newt Gingrich criticized President Obama’s comments to Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, as “alarming behavior.”
Monday’s event, held in a state that doesn’t vote for another three weeks, also seemed to signal a new phase in the campaign. Event attendees were allowed to take pictures with the candidate for $50 per photo. Before tonight, supporters took photos with Gingrich for free.
Charging for photos, in addition to news that the campaign canceled a trip to North Carolina, contributes to the narrative that Gingrich is struggling to stay afloat financially.
But, Gingrich continues to vow to stay in the race even until Delaware votes on April 24th.
Funny, but when I went to the site, there’s a page with a host of teabagger candidates that she supports, and links to their twitter and FB pages, but no link to donate to them. Whowouldthunk” Grifter applies more and more each day.
Alaska Republican Sarah Palin is “on the verge of making her decision of whether or not to run for office” – and her backers should write a check right away, a letter from her political action committee says.
The Sept. 20 letter from SarahPAC treasurer Tim Crawford says: “It’s one of the most difficult and important decisions of her life. And I want her to know that she has our support.”
It also notes the donations could be used to support other conservative candidates. “Send your best, one-time gift to SarahPAC today,” it says.
Ugh. I heard all the twittering and gnashing of teeth over Half Term McDitzy Pants “giving up” her tour half way and bided my time, knowing damn well what would happen the minute the media started paying attention to her again. So here she is! Psych!
(CNN) – Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin had another bone to pick with the media Wednesday -and that includes her employer, Fox News-this time over whether she has ended her “One Nation” bus tour.
Taking issue with reports she has abandoned the tour, she Tweeted, “I did? Hmm, glad I have media to let me know my plans.” She then included, “Palin Ends Bus Tour” with a link to a Fox News article.
The Fox contributor wrote of the media, “They never cease to amaze.”
Reports of the tour’s end appear to have begun when RealClearPolitics posted an article Wednesday that the maybe-2012-presidential-candidate’s bus trip was on “hiatus.” It then caught fire on the internet with multiple postings trumpeting news of the tour’s premature death.
The “One Nation” bus embarked on a tour of historic sites, battlefields and first-in-the-nation primary states in May with stops including Gettysburg, the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia and a clambake in New Hampshire.
At the beginning of her tour the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee told CNN that she planned to travel with the bus to Iowa, the state that votes first in the race for the GOP presidential nomination during its caucus.

As we wait for Sarah Palin’s emails to be released by the State of Alaska later today, Politico notes that when media outlets first requested them during her 2008 vice presidential campaign, Palin’s office “pegged the price for producing them at $15 million. The fee eventually fell to $725.97.”
