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.
