Romney’s Money Problem

Given that his kids have a $100m trust fund, you would have thought Mitt Romney would have taken a little more care in organising this photo op.

Newt Boldly Goes Where No Candidate Has Gone Before

GOP Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich seems to be taking the old saying “aim for the moon, and even if you miss you will land amongst the stars” literally. In a speech yesterday he promised to have established a moon base by the end of his second term. How’s this for blue sky thinking:

“When we have 13,000 Americans living on the moon, they can petition to become a state… I wanted every young American to say to themselves, I could be one of those 13,000. I could be a pioneer. I need to study science and math and engineering. I need to learn how to be a technician. I can be a part of building a bigger, better future. I can actually go out and live the future, looking at the solar system and being part of a generation of courageous people who do something big and bold and heroic.”

First Rule of Politics

Earlier this week Guido took Mrs Fawkes to a preview showing of George Clooney’s new political thriller “The Ides of March”. Mrs Fawkes isn’t interested in politics, but she is interested in George Clooney. Half the Lobby were at the screening as well – some with their other halves – it is a deeply political thriller about a US presidential campaign. Clooney follows in the footsteps of Robert Redford in “The Candidate” (1972) in as much that it is about a good looking liberal-left politician who has to make compromises with reality to win an election. Guido won’t spoil the story, but it will appeal to co-conspirators.

There was one line that particularly amused Guido and judging by the loud guffaws, the Lobby – “You can start wars and bankrupt the country. They’ll forgive you for that. But you don’t f**k the intern.” Or the political adviser…
