Gingrich Calls Political System Stupid, Vows To Stay In The Race By NBC's Alex Moe
PALATINE, Ill. Hours after finishing a disappointing second place in both the Alabama and Mississippi primaries, Newt Gingrich marched his campaign onward, vowing he is staying in the race.
Campaigning in Illinois on Wednesday, Gingrich made little mention of the two contests he had hoped to win in the South. He instead focused his speeches on the big ideas that drive his campaign, explaining that many people just dont understand what needs to be done to help change the country.
The thing I find most disheartening about this campaign is the difficulty of talking about positive ideas on a large scale because the news media cant cover it and candidly, my opponents cant comprehend it, Gingrich told the five hundred plus person crowd at the Northwest Suburban Republican Lincoln Day Dinner. The result is you cant have a serious conversation. It doesnt fit. It doesnt count. It is as though it doesnt occur.
Gingrich, who brought up Alzheimers research for the first time in weeks, admitted he wants to be the candidate of science and technology.
We are at the edge of such extraordinary opportunities and it is so hard to get this party to understand it, said Gingrich, speaking in a more frustrated tone than usual. Our political system is so methodically and deliberately stupid.

Grasping at straws because he’s losing. Time to retire.
Who is stupid, exactly, Berlin?
Repo Men (Wall St. bankers and D.C. ruling class, “more than a few of them belong in prison.”)
And Mitt Romney tries to high 5 him.
Iowa, Virgina, Libertarian Ron Paul, crossover democrats.
Newt is calling a spade a spade. That is very rare in today’s political environment.
Romney will get BBQ’ed by the Obamaoid..
Santo will get fricaseed... when the brain wash of women starts..
ONLY Newt can disembowel Zerodamus..
Newt can get him laughed off the stage..
Probable is most women are already brain washed..
American women are for the most part quite stupid..
They buy his bull Squirt like teenaged hormones..
Krazy, like a faux-xx
Word that Newtie!!!!
Please, stay in and give us a chance to bleed Romney dry before the convention.
I agree. Look what it’s sticking us with and has stuck us with. But, I think I’d blame the media more. They want either Santorum or Romney, so they’re not going to cover Newt’s plans.
I hate stoopit underdog stories but, Newt has consistently bested others before.
Barry will make clear that there is no reason for Romney’s candidacy as they agree on every issue.
That is a pretty “broad” statement. Pun intended.
I really don't think that women are any dumber than the bulk of the voting population. Lot's of people, both men and women, are duped by political bull do-do.
Very few really do their homework.
