Newt Gingrich Offered $1 Million to Drop out of Presidential Race
Talk-show host Michael Savage has offered presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich a cool million out of his own pocket to drop out of the race. Savage doesn’t think the Republican has a real shot at the White House, and feels that Mitt Romney has a better chance of beating Barack Obama.
On his website, he refers to Gingrich as a “fat, old, white man.” Ouch. Read details of the offer after the jump.
From talker Michael Savage’s website: “The republican presidential field has come down to two candidates who have a real chance of getting the nomination: Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. While it’s true that Romney is not as strong a conservative as many would like him to be, the most pressing issue before America today is defeating Barack Obama. And that is something Newt Gingrich cannot do.” He goes on to say, “In a presidential debate against Obama, regardless of how well he does on television, he will come off badly compared to Obama and look like nothing more than what he is: a fat, old, white man!”
It’s doubtful that Gingrich will accept the offer, and it’s a win-win for Savage because he’ll get to keep the money, and a ton of free publicity.
