    Frugal Newt???

    "Gingrich thought 2nd Tiffany credit line was private.
    Word that it must be reported came as a 'shock' to candidate and his wife, sources say."

    “All I’m telling you is we are very frugal,” Gingrich said. “We in fact live within our budget. We owe nothing.”

    "Gingrich’s senior strategists immediately recognized they had a problem: the claims of frugality would be difficult for most voters to reconcile with hundreds of thousands of dollars in Tiffany purchases, the campaign sources said."

    I can see where it would make his campaign hypocritical to paint Obama as an elitist and "out of touch" when he, himself, has two open credit lines to Tiffany for those amounts.

    On another note, did you see Santorum's YouTube political ad against Huntsman?
