Conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage has offered Republican Presidential primary hopeful Newt Gingrich $1 million to end his bid for the Presidency.
The offer, which Gingrich would have to agree to within 48 hours as of Tuesday, stems from a list of grievances Savage has with the candidate’s lack of a strong conservative leadership record.
A statement on Savage’s website reads: “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.”
The radio host goes on to sight Gingrich’s failure to deliver his “Contract With America,” his global warming commercial with Nancy Pelosi, his immigration views, his financial gain through working for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, his divorces and his assertion that the GOP is guilty of “right-wing social engineering” all as reasons the candidate is unelectable.
Savage wraps up his list by saying that Gingrich is a “fat, old white man” who could not stand up to Obama in a televised debate no matter how he performed.
