Gingrich ‘dumbfounded’ by Obama win!

The former GOP candidate had previously predicted that Romney would enjoy an easy victory. He said on Fox News, "My personal guess is you'll see a Romney landslide, 53 percent-plus ... in the popular vote, 300 electoral votes-plus."

Speaking ability

I've always known that speaking ability is not and should not be used as an indicator of how intelligent a person is. It is merely an assumption that has been passed down throughout history. For most of human history, it was the only way to communicate. (most people couldn't write) This false assumption of intelligence is also based on the surface value that naturally comes with the benefits of "out talking" other people. This is to say that the impressed listeners think to themselves about their own ability to speak fluently and then measure themselves against it. And when they realize that they can't speak as well, they assume that the better speaker is smarter than themselves. It is nothing more than a natural brain to body function, like good balance. Those "fast talkers" love to use it to their advantage as they entertain, bewilder and sometimes belittle those who are less vocally active.
He was never the "smartest man in the room".

this sellout, this, "part of the problem"...

has been "dumbfounded" for a very long time

ever since he claimed his wife wasn't "pretty enough" to be first lady and left her because she had cancer he has been whalescum to me

what a total scumbag!

It is easy...

It is easy to know who will win the presidential race even a week ahead of time. Simply see who the Las Vegas bookies are backing. They approach the issue from an unemotional point of view and are usually spot-on. They sure were last week.

So if Newton didn't do his homework (what else is new, he usually knows absolutely NOTHING about what he speaks) he only has himself to blame.

Wait...

Gingrich ‘dumbfounded’ by Obama win!

That's better.

The title of this post

should be shortened to "Gingrich dumb". Kidding aside he is a sleezy piece of trash who like Mittens, will say anything if it benefits him at the time. When he was running he said that there was no way he could be Barack Obama. Well, at least at one point in time he was right.

I came to the comments to say this word for word

Even the "sleazy piece of trash" part. A rose is a rose, a tulip is a tulip, and Gingrich is a sleazy piece of trash. It is what it is.

Newt's job was to throw the nomination to Romney.

Newt, a lobbyist, was chosen for this job because of his socialist views, extreme womanizing and high level disgusting factor among conservative voters.

Newt is one that could never beat Romney. Thus he was safe competition for Flipper.

absolutely!

and this piece of trash was the FIRST to co-opt Dr. Paul's message to get traction to steal from the people

he should be tried and hung as a traitor!

Same can be said for Santorum

That guy should not lead humans in anything. It was a perfect plan and Ron Paul knew he had little chance. If it would have been just Romney and Paul, Paul would have wiped the floor. They kept Gingrich and Santorum around until they needed, and then all of a sudden, they "suspend" their campaigns and support the guy who they railed against repetitively for not having principles and flip flopping.

Gingrich also believed that 90% of Paul supporters

would vote for Romney...So, he's not so much "dumbfounded" as he is just DUMB :-)

De criminalize Liberty!

Newt doesn't believe anything, he is paid to say it.

He is a lobbyist who says what he is paid to say when he is paid to say it.

Heh-low-ooohh

We knew the GOP wasn't going to get anyone elected with out the 'swing vote'. Presidents are never elected without 'the swing vote'. The GOP snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by alienating the swing vote by forcing on us a guy who had as the only good thing going for him being not being Obama. None of the Democrats that would have turned to Paul or Independents who would have turned to Paul or the Republicans who have wanted to take over the GOP voted for Romney any more so than we would have voted for Newt. A Republican could very well be headed to the White House right now had the status quo Republicans not done everything in their power to prevent it. Their stubborness lost them the White House AND their party itself.

Gingrich is founded on dumb.

He believed "the conservative entertainment complex." A smart guy like Gingrich actually believed the likes of Limbaugh, Hannity, Levine, and all the rest of those talking-head propagandists.

He Won't Figure This Out!

Is he saying; “I’m dumbfounded because the guy who lost to McCain, who lost to Obama, also lost to Obama?”

LOST

He's really saying: "I’m dumbfounded because I'm the guy who lost to the guy who lost to McCain, who lost to Obama!!!"
