Why Do People Take an Instant Dislike To Newt Gingrich?

Quotes don’t get much better than this one by Bob Dole.

“Why do people take such an instant dislike to me?” asked a perplexed Gingrich, to whom Dole bluntly explained: “Because it saves them time.”

That one’s a keeper.

    People just instinctively show Gingrich the same general esteem and respect he would accord them.

    That reminds me of one of my favorite Bush-era jokes: Bush and Cheney are in an elevator. Cheney sniffs the air and says, “Dubya, did you fart?” He says, “No. Was I supposed to?”

    Mainly because he’s condescending and believes himself to be the authority on ANY subject. Republicans love their Reagan. Democrats love their Clinton, and Newt seems to take credit for both. Re-writer of History.

    Why people hate Newt? Because he’s extreme,unethical,and immoral.

    As far as I’m concerned, both Gingrich and Romney are a couple of phonies, but then; what did we expect from the Republican party – compassionate conservatives? Compassionate conservative sounds like an oxymoron when you consider what they stand for nowadays.
