Newt Gingrich is currently the leader of the Republican field of presidential candidates. So it’s only fitting that the quotes come out of the skeleton closet. Here are more than a dozen quotes from Newt Gingrich that reveal his lies, his arrogance, his hatred, and his hypocrisy and disqualify him from ever being President.
1.“I’m not a natural leader. I’m too intellectual; I’m too abstract; I think too much.”
~Newt Gingrich, admitting that he’s an intellectual elite incapable of leading.
2.“If the Soviet empire still existed, I’d be terrified. The fact is, we can afford a fairly ignorant presidency now.”
~Newt Gingrich, saying that it’s okay for the President to be ignorant.
3.“The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument.”
~Newt Gingrich, arguing that it’s okay for politicians to be bought and paid for.
4.“Give the park police more ammo.”~Newt Gingrich, responding to a reporter who asked what to do about the homeless a few days after the police shot a homeless man in front of the White House.
5.“The problem isn’t too little money in political campaigns, but not enough.”
~Newt Gingrich on campaign finance reform.
6.“I have enormous personal ambition. I want to shift the entire planet. And I’m doing it. I am now a famous person. I represent real power.”
~Newt Gingrich, blowing his own horn.
7.“Gingrich – Primary mission, Advocate of civilization, Definer of civilization, Teacher of the rules of civilization, Leader of the civilizing forces.”
~ Newt Gingrich, blowing his own horn.
8.“The most serious, systematic revolutionary of modern times.”
~Newt Gingrich, blowing his own horn.
9.“It doesn’t matter what I do. People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.”
~Newt Gingrich, saying we should do as he says, regardless of what he actually does.

10.“This is one of the great tragedies of the Bush administration. The more successful they’ve been at intercepting and stopping bad guys, the less proof there is that we’re in danger…. It’s almost like they should every once in a while have allowed an attack to get through just to remind us.”
~Newt Gingrich, at a book talk in Huntington, NY, April 2008, saying that Republicans should allow terrorist attacks on American soil to remind us of the dangers in the world.
11.“Now, we don’t get rid of it in round one because we don’t think that that’s politically smart, and we don’t think that’s the right way to go through a transition. But we believe it’s going to wither on the vine because we think people are voluntarily going to leave it — voluntarily.”
~Newt Gingrich, admitting that while they won’t kill Medicare outright, Republicans will try to make it wither on the vine and die.
12.“She isn’t young enough or pretty enough to be the President’s wife.”
~Newt Gingrich, talking about his first wife after divorcing her.
13.“I read Men Who Hate Women and the Women Who Love Them and I found frightening pieces that related to…my own life.”
~Newt Gingrich, talking about his problems with women.
14.“It is tragic what we do in the poorest neighborhoods, entrapping children in child laws which are truly stupid…These schools should get rid of unionized janitors, have one master janitor, pay local students to take care of the school.”
~Newt Gingrich, advocating for an end to child labor laws so businesses can fire union workers and replace them with cheap labor.
15.“We should replace bilingual education with immersion in English so people learn the common language of the country and they learn the language of prosperity, not the language of living in a ghetto.”
~Newt Gingrich. Two years later, Gingrich unveils a new Spanish-language website, The Americano.
16.“The left-wing Democrats will represent the party of total hedonism, total exhibitionism, total bizarreness, total weirdness, and the total right to cripple innocent people in the name of letting hooligans loose.”
~Newt Gingrich, smearing Democrats when in fact it’s Republicans who want to cripple innocent people. Remember when they cheered for letting a man without health insurance die? And speaking of exhibitionism and bizarreness, have you seen the Republican Presidential field?
17.“These people are sick. They are so consumed by their own power, by a Mussolini-like ego, that their willingness to run over normal human beings and to destroy honest institutions is unending.”
~Newt Gingrich, once again smearing Democrats, but telling the complete truth about himself and the GOP. Republicans want to kill Medicare and Social Security, the EPA, and several other honest institutions that serve normal human beings. Speaking of running over normal human beings, remember when Republicans cheered for letting a man without health insurance die?
18.“I think one of the great problems we have in the Republican party is that we don’t encourage you to be nasty. We encourage you to be neat, obedient, and loyal and faithful and all those Boy Scout words.”
~Newt Gingrich, advocating for hateful rhetoric and smearing opponents with lies.
Obviously, we could fill a book with many more quotes by Newt Gingrich, so putting them all here would make for a very long read. Hopefully, just by reading these quotes, you will get a good idea of what kind of person and politician Newt Gingrich is. He is a hateful, vile, nasty, despicable, hypocritical, arrogant man and he is personally and professionally unqualified to be President.

Nobody is terrified of Newt Gingrich, because Newt could never win votes from the middle in a general election. He, like so many of the other Republican candidates are running so far to the right to gain the support of their base to earn the nomination, that it appears unlikely that any of them could ever wander back far enough center to be a viable contender.

Of course, Lides, and so Barack Obama will be swept into office for four more years; it won't even be close.
No doubt Obama will get all those votes from independents like yourself who are just so much better off today than they were three years ago.

10 of The Craziest Things Newt Gingrich Has Ever Said
#10 Dec 11, 2011
I actually agree with Newt on this point.
4. Blame the gays
In October, during a campaign stop in Iowa, Gingrich called gay marriage a “temporary aberration” that “fundamentally goes against everything we know.” He reminded his audience that “marriage is between a man and woman” and “has been for all of recorded history.”
This coming from a past adulterer who has been married three times. It’s not the number of marriages or even the affair that makes this statement outrageous, but rather the hypocrisy. In his personal life, he has no problem disrespecting the so-called “institution of marriage,” yet when it comes to giving same-sex couples the right to marry, Gingrich is suddenly raging with concern about the sanctity of marriage and commitment.
And, as someone who constantly reminds his audiences that he's a historian, it's odd that Gingrich doesn't know that polygamy has been the most common domestic arrangement in human history.
Gingrich’s disdain for LGBT marriage equality was on display one month earlier during an interview with Catholic radio, where he cast blame on same-sex marriage for the country’s economic woes.

I'm surprised there isn't a group called 'Quacks for Ron Paul' because the guy certainly seems to attract them as part of his following.
#14 Dec 11, 2011
Yeah thats what we heard during the last election. Shawn Hannity actually gained respect for him this time round.
#15 Dec 11, 2011
There's something not quite right and ultra paranoid about a political following that feels such need to remain anonymous that it uses subterfuge to disguise and hide the location of ISP's from which its followers post anonymously to the web.
For example, Ron Paul 2012, how many ISP locations have you posted from just on this Topix thread?
#16 Dec 11, 2011
There is something not quite right about you. For instance how many people did you overcharge for gas. And what about your stalking charges?
How many meaningless posts have you made in the past year alone?
Ron Paul wins every poll hands down. Noone is hiding anything. He is the man. Although your people will probably murder him like they did JFK. Will they use the single bullet theory again? They are not very creative you know.
#17 Dec 11, 2011
You fail to answer honestly a simple question brought about by your own unexplained actions to hide your ISP location: Why are you doing it?
#18 Dec 11, 2011
Quakertown Pa big boy. Not hiding anything.
So, why did you cheat all those people and why won't you pay the fines? Answer those questions.
Why did you stalk another man's wife? Hmmmm?
#19 Dec 11, 2011
Then why the New York, NY ISP?
#20 Dec 11, 2011
That was not me.
Why don't you post your Social Security Numbers?
How about you Credit Card numbers? What have you got to hide?
#21 Dec 11, 2011
You are a testament to the whack jobs supporting Ron Paul.
Ron Paul should be disassociating himself from the cultists amongst his following because people like you do nothing but detract from any message the guy has.
