Self-Adoration Reaches Newt Heights

OP-ED COLUMNIST
Self-Adoration Reaches Newt Heights
By FRANK BRUNI
Published: December 17, 2011


................ You have to take another politician’s ego, double it, and add cheese and a side of fries to get to Gingrich. An especially heaping, unhealthy diet of self-regard slogs through his veins.

..................

Gingrich isn’t the answer: he’s hot-headed and truculent. And while Obama sees himself (with justification) as historic, Gingrich sees himself as epic. If Obama is The One, Gingrich is The Plus-Size One.

Lately he has been on less bloated behavior, and by lately I mean the few weeks since he emerged as the Republican frontrunner du jour. If you watched the debate Thursday, you could sense, from the clench of his jaw, that he wasn’t merely biting his tongue but making an unhappy meal of it.

Still, Gingrich the Grandiloquent sneaked through. Asked about his stated resolve to rein in federal courts, he said that “just like Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln and F.D.R., I would be prepared to take on the judiciary.” The company he keeps!

1. If this man wins we all can call him President Ego. That seems all he has going for him.

 

I for one will be happy when he finally puts if foot in his mouth that will lead him over the clibb as just a footnote in history.
