I've known Newt Gingrich in the past and have worked with him a bit. I have respected him and am one of many who would like to see Gingrich-Obama debates.
In spite of these positive aspects, I "wrote Newt off" early when he blew a Meet the Press interview with David Gregory with comments about Congressman Ryan's budget plan and even worse when he muffed his response to Gregory re Obama being a food stamp president. He wasn't quick enough on his feet to turn the issue on Gregory. He didn't live up to his billing.
Then I thought he was coming back as an adult in the room. But now the flap over Romney and Bain Capital.....a business with which I have experience.....and not all good. Yet, Newt is wrong in spite of his justifying his position as defending himself against PAC attacks.
Fact is, he is letting his narcissism drive his personal feelings rather than to use his intellect and knowledge to help prevent destruction of America. Sorry, but it is what it is.
