Eye of Newt

Newt Gingrich slammed Mitt Romney’s assertion last week that he lost the 2012 presidential election because of “gifts” President Barack Obama gave to blacks, Hispanics and younger voters during his first term in the White House.  “It’s nuts,” Gingrich explained. “The job of a political leader in part is to understand the people. If we can’t offer a better future that is believable to more people, we’re not going to win.”  Gingrich paused for a moment and then added, “If I was nominated by the Republican Party, my sole focus of the campaign would have been topics that resonate with the American population such as building moon colonies, encouraging all males to have up to seven wives in their lifetimes, and promoting the emerging Republican platform that nobody has been raped, ever.”
