    Newt is skilled at the "art of the exit" as evidenced by exits from the House of Representatives and several marriages. However this is different... rather than leaving the money on the nightstand and sneaking out – you cash the checks and leave by providing an endorsement and words of wisdom. Republicans believed the line about Newt being "forgiven by Jesus"... Unfortunately for Newt the Koch brothers had already bought their candidate and Newt was hosed from the beginning.
