Tiffany and Co. and the Newster
The Newster has bristled at questions over his Tiffany account. I rarely support Newt on much of anything. I think he is king of the hypocrites. However, do we have the right to know about his jewelry purchases?
Obviously, most of us don’t have a half-million dollar line of credit with the most recognizable jewelry store in America. What kind of special accounts do they have? Newt said it was a regular Tiffany non-interest account. Hmmmm…do I want one of those? Yes!!! Should I have one? Probably not. I could do real damage and those who know me know I love my jewelry almost to the point of gaudiness.
Should the Newster have answered the questions about his purchases? I say no. Is it any our our business? Not really. There have to be some secrets and privacy. There is enough out there to go after Newt for. Leave his diamond studded naval rings out of the mix. [Just kidding, Newt.]
Stephen Colbert probably said it best. He buys his engagement rings in bulk. Seriously though, I think we are overly snooping on this one. He is a grown man, his wife is a grown woman. As long as they aren’t cheating their other creditors, they can buy as much at Tiffany as they want, in my book. We need to allow some privacy to all presidential candidates.
