    If likability matters in an election, the once and future GOP nominee, Newt "The Professor" Gingrich has a ways to go.

    Gingrich as always come across as an arrogant, smug, bastard. His M.O. has always been to play the part of the intellectual. However, he has reached new, dizzying heights with this new election. It was most likely a tactical error for Romney's SuperPAC to attack Gingrich (who was dead and the water anyways) and to fire Gingrich up and let the "monster out of the cage". However, let's be frank, Gingrich was only making a half hearted attempt to suppress his inner jack ass.

    What I love most about Gingrich is his penchant to scold people. He truly does channel his inner professor.

    For instance, he scolded John King for asking about his ex-wifes claims about an "open marriage".

    Read more here: Gingrich scolds media for spotlighting ex-wife's complaint - KansasCity.com

    Of course, that was not the first time or last time Gingrich refused to respond to a question, and instead attacked the questioner.

    And, it played well to a conservative base who has bought into the "evil liberal media" canard.

    It won't work with the general electorate. No one likes to be scolded by an arrogant fat body.

    Newt makes me want to barf whenever he speaks of fairness or righteousness apparently possessing none of his own. The man is an ethically challenged neo-con that represents everything the tea party claimed to oppose, why did he even get this far?

    Of course. Unfortunately for you, it will be a major turnoff for everyone else.

    Gingrich choose to run for POTUS. He's not going to get a pass on answering questions.

    Certainly not by being a condescending dick.

    you know what newt is? and why he is gaining now?

    Newt is john mccain with the balls to tell the truth

    at best a rino, BUT, when mccain was too pussed up to really go after odumbo in '08 and odumbo walked all over mccain,

    Newt is a badass that easily makes people look stupid. and people enjoy watching a beat down.

    newt will ass rape odumbo in a one on one debate

    i dont like newt, i think he is a bad person, but

    sometimes, a good boss has to be an asshole

    Libs love arrogance and smugness when it's on their side. Nobody was more arrogant or smug than the pervert-in-chief when he accused the vast right wing conspiracy of leaving his DNA on Monica's dress. It's no secret that libs would rather run against a meek candidate like McCain than an arrogant republican like Gingrich

    After Newt got done with him, John King looked like he got smacked in the face with a fish!
    You, and many forget that Newt and Repub nominees have to deal with a media whose vast majority is still having a slobbering love affair with Obama and are subject to flavor of the day personal attacks that cannot be proven, but instead, are she said/he said drivel.

    You can imagine lib reporter John King snickering to fellow lefties when he planned to ambush Gingrich with the first question of the debates. When it backfired libs ...sob...sob accused Gingrich of being arrogant. You almost gotta laugh.
