Can Newt overcome the defections? I don`t see how!


The brewing storm has come ashore. Newt Gingrich's presidential campaign has imploded as the majority of his staff have headed to higher ground in a mass retreat from the floundering candidate. Stumbling out of the blocks in a horrific, self destructive, "Meet the Press" interview, followed by a vacationing, part time, lackadaisical campaign effort, the defections don`t come as a surprise to insiders and others who also questioned the candidates commitment.

     His campaign seemed half-hearted from the beginning, it came across as more publicity oriented than anything resembling an actual campaign. Couple this with his ability to put the best of intentions, in the worst of terms, left many wondering, was he for real? Obviously his staff asked themselves the same question, and judging from their actions their conclusion was a resounding NO!
