    For me it goes back to the 90's and the ugly side he showed when he so brazenly and unsympathetically judged and politicized the heinous case of the baby being cut out of a mother's belly.

    Politically it was on par with Obama's incredibly unpresidential "acted stupidly" comment about the Cambridge police officers arresting Henry Gates. On a humanity level, it was worse.



    Sometimes I try to give Newt a chance. Sometimes he makes sense. But he's had enough hiccups to make me not try too hard. His comments on the mosque near Ground Zero are an example of how he manages to turn me off whenever I start to think I should take him seriously. He has made me not care about trying too hard to see any particular good in what he brings with him to the campaign.

    I dislike everything about Gingrich. Plus, he has a face I'd like to slap.

    He's a lying, cheating, hypocritical little man who acts like he's the smartest person in the room.

    During his term as Speaker, eighty-four ethics charges were filed against him; eighty-three of them were dropped.[61] The remaining charge concerned a 20-hour college course called "Renewing American Civilization" that Gingrich had taught through a tax-deductible foundation, Kennesaw State College Foundation. Allegations of tax improprieties led to two counts "of failure to seek legal advice" and one count of "providing the committee with information which he knew or should have known was inaccurate" concerning the use of a tax exempt college course for political purposes.

    Republicans lost five seats in the House in the 1998 midterm elections—the worst performance in 64 years for a party that didn't hold the presidency. Polls showed that Gingrich and the Republican Party's attempt to remove President Clinton from office was widely unpopular among Americans

    Newt Gingrich - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Most likely because he has shown himself to lacking in ethics, and a willingness waste the time of the American public in terms of both money and legislation to seek political power. So while he may appear to have a vast knowledge of the inner workings of Washington D.C. theres a good reason for that, he's a former Speaker of the House.
