Reagan's Birthplace--Newt's Fizzle
People in small-town Tampico, IL, Reagan's birthplace, wanted to build a statue in his honor. They hired Newt Gingrich to speak at a fundraiser for $40,000 and paid about $5,000 for airfare. They did not break even. So far, no help from Gingrich

2. i was going to post this but was to lazy..
my stupid newspaper won`t print anything on their web edition.the e edition is more than their print edition. i type slow so i figured the hell with it. so thanks for posting this.

the people behind this are for the most part good people who wanted to do something for their community. newt took advantage of their sincerity and laughed all the way to the airport. maybe the folks over there should have taken a clue from the republicans here in dixon. the republicans here in dixon ran grover norquist out of town. he tried to con over something about the reagan home them but they wised up.
