LOL...it's getting pretty bad when even a greedy bastard like Gingrich
tells us that Romney and the Republican Party is freaking NUTS!!!!!
Can't conservatives take a hint?
Like several other prominent Republicans, Newt Gingrich slammed Mitt
Romney's assertion in a conference call with donors last week that he
lost the 2012 presidential election because of "gifts" President
Barack Obama gave to blacks, Hispanics and younger voters during his
first term in the White House.
"It's nuts," Gingrich told guest host Martha Raddatz on ABC's "This
Week" on Sunday. "First of all, it's insulting. This would be like Wal-
Mart having a bad week and going, 'The customers have really been
unruly.' I mean, the job of a political leader in part is to
understand the people. If we can't offer a better future that is
believable to more people, we're not going to win."

Last week, the former House Speaker admitted he was "dumbfounded" by
Obama's victory--and Romney's poor performance at the polls.
"The president won an extraordinary victory," Gingrich said on NBC's
"Today" show. "And the fact is we owe him the respect of trying to
understand what they did and how they did it. But if you had said to
me three weeks ago, Mitt Romney would get fewer votes than John McCain
and it looks like he'll be 2 million fewer, I would have been
But the disbelief soon turned to disillusion over Romney's divisive
"I'm very disappointed with Governor Romney's analysis, which I
believe is insulting and profoundly wrong," Gingrich said in an
interview with KLRU-TV in Austin. "First of all, we didn't lose Asian-
Americans because they got any gifts. He did worse with Asian-
Americans than he did with Latinos. This is the hardest-working and
most successful ethnic group in America--they ain't into gifts.
"Second, it's an insult to all Americans," he continued. "It reduces
us to economic entities. You have no passion, no idealism, no dreams,
no philosophy. If it had been that simple, my question would be, 'Why
didn't you outbid him?' He had enough billionaire supporters, if
buying the electorate was the key, he could have got all his super PAC
friends together and said, don't buy ads, give gifts. Be like the
northwest Indians who have gift-giving ceremonies. We could have gone
town-by-town and said, 'Come here, let me give you gifts. Here are
Republican gifts.' An elephant coming in with gifts on it."
