Add Newt Gingrich to the list of Republicans coming to terms with the loss of the presidential election. On Monday, the former speaker of the House sounded reflective on the "Today" show, saying, "We need to stop, take a deep breath and learn." He added, "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."
Gingrich said, "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."

Are you crazy?!!!! Obama does not deserve respect...he stole it.
We are seeing dozens of verified reports of voter fraud and Newt NEVER mentioned it once to Sean today.
And to think, it might coulda been you, Newt.
Perhaps it’s respect among thieves, i.e. as such count the proverbial “honor” thereof.
Maybe Yahoo! News will do a follow up story on the remarkable turnout he got in Philly, Cayuga county, etc.
Newt...the man who attacked Romney’s Bain Capital background. Ugh.
We have a real path forward, a winning path, but we have to play the percentages and be just as cynical and aggressively Machiavellian as them - maybe more. It's worth it.
Gingrich hasn’t been keeping up with his history. Illegals come to America, have babies in American Hospitals at taxpayer’s expense, illegals and Citizen babies grow up dependent on Government, turn 18 and vote for the one that gives away more freebies. Now wash, rinse, repeat.
I don’t trust the government that ran the elections so I don’t trust the numbers. What I do know is that Romney conceded without so much as a whimper.
Women should NEVER EVER EVER EVER vote. Period.
Obama is still short 7 million voters he got out in 2008.
Mitt was just the fall guy in an All Star Wrestling match billed as a Predential Race. Nobody will say anything about the gross examples of cheating. Maybe Allen West will create such a spectical in Florida that it will draw attention to it? We’re a week out tomorrow, and not a peep. Kind of like the Birth Certificate. It was fraudulent as H*LL, and no one would say sh*t.
You simply don't win by attracting independents ~ you win by getting Republican voters out!
Newt did attack on that front in part because it was where Romney is vulnerable and in part to forshadow what the Dems would do in the general. In fact, it is the method used to demonize Romney and make him an attractive alternative. The Democrat/Media has become really good at making every election a choice between two unattractive options...the lesser of two evils. They take you down in the mud with them, and regardless of the opposition’s response, it is deemed ‘the most negative race ever’. Romney did not run an overly negative campaign, but a poll would likely show he was the negative one...not the guy who accused Romney, of murder, cancer causer, hatchet man, etc.
Gingrich would have done worse.
As a bona fide woman, I agree with you.
Be prepared to hear all about lots of voters staying home...the Bipartisan Oligarchy would rather we all stew in that mess..than having us all bothered, and deciding to investigate, about all the voters voting who never voted...
Listening to descriptions of how Democrats got out their ground game with superior ability to bring those to the polls who normally would never go by the commentators on Fox election night..made me realize..what they actually have done is track names that HAVE NOT VOTED IN MANY, MANY elections cycles....and vote them.
A well-funded project, county-by-county..to examine the names signed in at at the polls..and going out to find those individuals..youll find they were never physically at he polls..or they themselves never filled out the absentee ballot....or their names in the death registers.
The very LAST thing the Bipartisan Oligarchy want or need is any semblance of Constitutional Federal Govmt or a clean vote.
Both those are up to We the People to cram it down their throats so hard in DC they will, someday, never do otherwise.
Absent a clean vote.....We the People are being taxed without representation..Ask George III how well that worked out!
No, I would not say that. If aught of the fairer sex ought not vote, it is the godless anti-family “feminist” unnatural ilk. There are still many pro-family God-fearing natural women out there.
