Its laughable that Gingrich keeps blaming the Republican "establishment." Ohh.. He is "Mr. Establishment," a creature of Washington DC. When he stepped down as Speaker (after ethics trouble), he didn't go home to Georgia, but stayed in D.C. hoping to cash-in on his name and influence. Which is why Freddie paid him big dollars.

If anyone is NOT Washington Establishment, its Romney. He's never held a position in Washington D.C.

We can all see how Gingrich manipulates language to fit both his agenda and his ego. His ad hominem attacks reveal the inner man. He can't stand that others call him out on his past, but he can sure dish it out himself.

Seems Mr. Gingrich is good a giving negative information, but not so good at receiving it.
Was it not his campaign that began to sound like the president in castigating Romney for being rich, successful and legally avoiding paying more taxes than necessary. The former Speaker is a bright man, but with a history of very poor personal ethics, and poor administration. After all, good administrators would not be so poorly organized as to not be on the ballot in states like Missouri ( a southern state that can be won by Gingrich) and Virgina. If one can not orgainize a compaigh and be on the ballot in important states how can they run a country?

Newt didn't have a good organization in Florida, sort of an ad hoc due to some success in SC. Newt's whole success in the 1980s and 1990s existed with his adverse relationship with people. His colleagues that were in the House knew you either had to be on his good side, as President Obama is doing, or you would be carpet-bombed by him and his cohorts. It was all or nothing. Some of the colleagues now think of him as more saintly as 15-20 years have gone by, but history is against that thought. He wants everyone to be benevolent to him but the looks in his eyes and the speech from his tongue is not that way. I remember some of the processes in Germany with the 3rd Reich guy that had vendettas against people. Little by little the freedoms and especially the making of money by those that were killed were not appreciated by the moustached man and his minions. That hasn't happened here, but class warfare is what happened in Germany and it split the people so that they didn't like anyone unless they weren't immigrants. Europe is where they are immigrants of the Euro

Gingrich. He can dish it out but he can't take it. Now why would America accept a man who was thrown out of congress because his political associates could not stand to work with him? He has some explaining and some apologizing to do before we will elect him our president. In fact, I don't know why we would.

You are not Reagan, Newt. You are just Newt.

Romney ran mainly against BO until newt and other repubs started attacking him.

Newt said he cannot debate someone who lies. So he would not be able to debate BO.

If newt's so thin-skinned, how will he hold up when the DNC, NYT, NBC, and the BO misadministration finally open up their barrages of innuendo, half-truths and outright lies?
