Newt had a lot to do with his own defeat. When he came out and slammed Romney on Bain Capital he was indistigusible from the occupy wall street crowd.

(Superciliousness is the essence of Obama)
That is a misunderstanding unfortunately. I got what he was saying in that the media would make Romney look like this greedy profiteer/closing businesses, to fire people. Talk radio twisted it up when they should have not. Newt did not leave his principle foundation. It turned out he was right because the left used those all characterizations against Mr. Romney. Newt is very brilliant, thought provoking and people expect him to be this perfect political animal. I wish he had been the candidate because solutions would have really been discussed. I enjoyed it so much when he called Obama and his corrupt administration out. No one else would/ do it. Maybe Palin but not like he took it to the media. I think we are going to have to accept, this is not only a 2 party ideas fight; it is also a fight with the Media. Our next candidate will have to be like a Newt on that level (to be able to handle or to go over the media as Reagan did to promote the message) Imo.

(I like Newt. Our nation's foundation is under attack.)
When he came out and slammed Romney on Bain Capital
Yes, that was ridiculous.
Newt is a good talker but people also forget that he "caved" over the Gov't shutdown debate with Clinton, the same thing for which people are up in arms against Boehner.

I disagree about Newt's "alleged error" of criticising Romney for the massive Bain Capital disaster of Romney's failed campaign.
Even Rush Limbaugh tacticly agrees that Bain Capital helped destroy Romney's campaign.
On Wednesday (yesterday) 2012-11-28 Rush Limbaugh recounted a KEY campaign statistic ...
that 85 percent of voters felt that Obama "really cared" for them ...
and ONLY 15 percent of voters felt that Romney "really cared" for them.
That statistic is a DISASTER !!!
When the politically INEPT Romney says things like ...
1) "I like to FIRE PEOPLE"
2) My wife has ONLY two Cadillacs
3) "Corporations are PEOPLE too ..."
It scares the living ###### out of possible voters.
You campaign with a STUPID message like that ... when 75-percent of America Adults are TERRIFIED of losing their jobs ...
and you get one of the Primary reasons for Romney's well-deserved defeat.
Even as a Evangelical Christian Pro-Life Tea Party conservative ...
and a business owner as well ...
who reluctantly voted for Romney-Ryan for "Pro-Life" reasons ...
I KNOW with "metaphysical certainty" that Mitt Romney will NEVER give a damn about ANYONE ...
unless they are either Mormons, direct familiy members ...
and his well-heeled "Vulture Captitalist" buddies at Bain Capital.
And of course, as usual, Newt Gingrich NAILS the POLITICAL TRUTH ... again ...

yes. Newt is a very smart guy, but he also commits a lot of political hypocrisy. The party needs more unity next time. I say move the first primary to Ohio and then have the whole field blasting the Democrats’ policies rather than each other.

Slammed Romney on Bain? The eGOP wasn’t listening, evidently you weren’t either. Newt asked realistic questions about Romney and Bain, vetting a serious future campaign issue. Everyone went nuts, shhhhhhhh don’t talk about Bain.......well, Obama kicked Romney’s ass regarding Bain and Bain is what beat him. Newt knew what was coming.
