Newt Brackets Obama's NH Visit...By Visiting New Hampshire

Attention 2012 watchers: Newt Gingrich is headed to New Hampshire. Smartly, the Nashua Telegraph, home newspaper of the city where President Obama is appearing next week, interviewed Gingrich about the State of the Union.

Said Gingrich:

"That's like if my two daughters in college told me they put $50,000 on their credit cards last year, but now they're going to buckle down and not spend any more," Gingrich said during a telephone interview prior to Obama's speech.

The Ging has a real reason for being in New Hampshire and talking to the papers there: he's participating in a new media summit on Saturday at the University of Southern New Hampshire.
