Newt Gingrich 'Dumbfounded' By Obama's 'Extraordinary Victory' Over Mitt Romney
"The president won an extraordinary victory. And the fact is we owe him the respect of trying to understand what they did and how they did it." He added, "But if you had said to me three weeks ago, Mitt Romney would get fewer votes than John McCain and it looks like he’ll be 2 million fewer, I would have been dumbfounded."
Gingrich, another delusional Repug who lives in denial and cannot relate the average person--and he's not even all that wealthy.
And Gingrich fancies himself as an "intellectual," one of the smart ones, the historian, the guy with the big ideas. Yet he paid no attention to statistics, polls, ground game strategy or the public's ability and desire to finally reject the lying douchebag Romney.
You better RECOGNIZE, bitches!!!
Sasha "Fierce" Obama
The Republican elite makes money off of the political charade game. They say one thing and do/know/believe something else in private.
The stupid Republicans and their supporters live in a bubble and are taken advantage of. The real (Republican) elite knows full well what's going on in the world and act accordingly while taking advantage of all the stupid people.
Actually, a lot of conservatives blame Mitt's loss on Gingrich. It was Gingrich's Bain ads that conservatives felt laid the groundwork for Obama's strategy to paint Mitt as the rich guy that's out of touch with working people.
Yet another example of how out of touch of reality the republican party is...
Bingo! R5 wins a cupie doll. The extremely nasty attacks during the Republican debate killed Romney's chances.
There is only ONE reason Mitt Romney lost: Mitt Romney.
Exactly, r8. Rmoney is his own worst enemy. His history of being a vulture, tax secrets, lies, misinterpretations, flip-flopping, and lousy persona killed his campaign.
They really didn't expect Obama to win. I guess they thought the first time he won it was some kind of fluke. They seem really shocked and angry that he won.
You are right, but when members of his own party are hammering him mercilessly on those very points, it does some very real damage. I love how the Republicans can be so very nasty and then expect people to have forgotten one month later. But, that is how they are with everything. "Forget what I said last week. Listen to what I am saying now!" The problems with Romney are not specific to Romney. He really does represent the Republican party as a whole.
I can't remember who said it, but this quote always stuck with me: Newt Gingrich is a stupid man's idea of what a smart man sounds like.
"The president won an extraordinary victory. And the fact is we owe him the respect of trying to understand what they did and how they did it."
Oh NOW they owe him respect? Fuck off Newt. What's next, embracing immigration reform? Too little, too late.
"trying to understand what they did and how they did it."
Like it's some weird kind of trick. Like it had nothing to do with the Republicans' policies and politics of greed, lies, and scapegoating.
Exactly, R14. Many Republicans in the face of the loss seem place the blame on the marketing and not the ideology.
What's even more extraordinary is that Mittens got hammered by his own party about Bain, and yet didn't develop a strategy to deal with a subject they had to have known would be picked by the dems.
I think many Americans (including some conservatives) are "dumbfounded" that this disgraced zombie pustule keeps getting a platform to spew his inanity. I know I am.
Newt Gingrich is dumbfounded by sparkly objects and merging traffic.
You should have seen the kinder, gentler Newt on The View yesterday. Lizzie didn't even have to speak over Joy once to defend him. And all Joy could do was sit there and say, "wow", with her full amount of incredulity.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
