Gingrich finally admits he doesn’t deserve to be president
In a wide-ranging interview with NBC late night talk show host Jay Leno on Thursday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) finally admitted that he does not deserve to be president.
The famously confident Republican told Leno that he was “publicly, explicitly wrong” about President Barack Obama’s reelection chances.
“Why were you so sure? Were you just watching Fox News?” Leno asked to cheers and applause.
“No, actually it’s just because all the historical models I knew said if you have this level of unemployment, this price of gasoline, this size of the deficit, that the incumbent was gonna lose,” Gingrich replied. “I give Obama a lot of credit that he defied all the probabilities and he won.”
He added that Election Day was “a very hard time for all of us,” saying he felt like the Republican Party “suddenly went off a cliff.”

The late night shows have been having fun with Fox News. Some of my repuke friends refuse to watch those shows now because they're being meanies to the brainwashed Fox crowd.
