The Gingrich Ego Rises
Newt Gingrich is getting cocky. Gingrich says that he will let President Barack Obama use a teleprompter during their debates. We haven't even had the Iowa caucus and Newt is declaring himself the Republican nominee. Gingrich then plays to the birther elements of the base by declaring that Obama hasn't studied American history.
Gingrich and other Republicans (such as Marco Rubio) love to question Obama's intelligence. My first thought is this is the party that had President George W. Bush as their leader. The second is Republicans fail to mention that Obama went to the House Republicans retreat in 2010. Obama answered questions from the Republican caucus. Obama out-debated the Republicans so badly that Fox News cuts away. Obama could debate the entire House GOP membership. Gingrich is really full of himself if he thinks he can beat Obama in a debate.
