Newt Gingrich Needs a Bromance


It sounds like Newt Gingrich is desperate to find some men who want to work for him:
Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich's campaign manager, senior strategists and key aides in early delegate-selection states all resigned on Thursday, a mass exodus that leaves his hopes of winning the Republican nomination in tatters.

In response, Gingrich posted a message to his followers on Facebook: "I am committed to running the substantive, solutions-oriented campaign I set out to run earlier this spring. The campaign begins anew Sunday in Los Angeles."
NBC News confirmed that spokesman Rick Tyler, campaign manager Rob Johnson, and strategists Dave Carney and Sam Dawson have left Gingrich's team.
Tyler told NBC, "There is a path to victory ... But there was a dispute on what that path to victory was." Tyler was with the former House speaker for nearly 12 years. "I have no regrets. I admire him deeply. I hope he does become president."
I think I know what the problem here is. None of these people believed that the man could become president even on a long shot and that's why they abandoned him. If Gingrich had had more of a bromance type relationship with his staff, they probably would have stuck by him. If he was giving them the keys to the executive washroom or if he was taking them to play golf in places where common people cannot go, they might have stayed with him through Christmas. It would appear that they were merely employees, and hired guns, and they have jumped ship.

By the way, no matter what you do with your computer screen, her eyes will follow you. Into the other room, no less.
