Wayne Newton must be questioning the motto “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” The entertainer and superstar appeared on Tuesday night with the Republican candidate Michele Bachmann on live television on Fox. Now people are expecting to see exactly how he kissed the candidate as the video clip is one of the hottest political looks on social media.
While the FOX news show On The Record with Greta Van Susteren was expecting Herman Cain to be on set, a cancellation meant finding someone who had ratings pull, lived in Vegas and knew politics. Well qualified or not, the only famous guy found for the job was Wayne Newton.
Standing next to Michele Bachmann, the entertainer was holding on to her in a couple pose and it was obvious, Newton was there for a show. While the interview continued towards the end it was very subtle that Wayne Newton was working his charm and at the end of the interview he gave her a kiss.
It was a parting moment that only Las Vegas could provide. The two were an odd combination of an entertainer who is in the business to entertain and a politician trying to make her points on camera. And in the end it was an awkward goodbye.

During a Thursday morning appearance on Fox News, Michele Bachmann announced her intention to roll back 30 years of tax breaks for the wealthy by going back to the tax rates under Ronald Reagan.
“For my tax plan, I take a page out of one of my great economists that I admire, Ronald Reagan,” Bachmann stated. “And under my tax plan I want to adopt the Reagan tax plan. It brought the economic miracle of the 1980s. Why not go with what works? I want to reinstitute the Reagan tax model from the 1980s.”
Of course Bachmann just made an accidental gaffe. Any intelligent person knows that tax rates were much higher during the Reagan Administration, including taxes on the wealthy and corporations. During Reagan’s first year in office, the top tax rate was 70%, and from 1982 to 1986, the top tax rate was 50%. So, I agree with Bachmann, let’s go back to those rates so we can see the economy flourish once again.
