Angry Voter to Gingrich: You're an Embarrassment

Tuesday, 17 May 2011 02:47 PM

By Newsmax Wires


Newt Gingrich is not enjoying a honeymoon -- even with voters -- just days after announcing his bid for the GOP nomination and the White House.

While on a trip to Iowa, one of the important primary states, an unhappy voter shook Gingrich's hand and called him an embarrassment to the GOP, referring to Gingrich's remarks about U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan's controversial plan to reform Medicare. The voter went on, saying of Ryan, "you undercut him, yes you did," and added "why don't you get out before you make a bigger fool of yourself."

Story continues below the video.











Gingrich's comments have clearly angered the conservative base. A Tuesday editorial in the Wall Street Journal said "Mr. Gingrich speaks loudly but shrinks from hard choices." And Gov. Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) chastised the Georgia Republican on CNN for cutting Ryan "off at the knees."
