Newt Gingrich is so full of baloney, he’s going to explode. Perhaps this accounts for his remarkable girth.
Like any opportunistic politician, he is trying to exploit rising gas prices and turn them to his advantage. But his claims are so preposterous, you have to marvel at his chutzpah.
“Elect me if you want gas for $2.50 a gallon,” he says. “Elect Obama and you’ll be stuck with $10 a gallon.”
Is there a credible economist on Earth who would back up such a claim?
