Newt Wants To Lose

A lot of people are missing that Newt was never in the primaries to actually win. He entered the primaries to raise his name recognition so he could make more with his various scams that he runs. Remember, he made more than $50 million just from health care lobbying in the last decade. And that was just one of his schemes.
So there he was, suddenly in the lead. Not the plan! He can’t pull in that kind of cash if he is the actual nominee — and he knows he can’t win the election. So he needs to milk the lead but make sure he doesn’t actually win the nomination. Did you notice that he slowed way down on campaigning in Iowa after taking the lead. That’s the tip-off.
Newt running for President is just one more Republican con game.
