What a former college instructor really thinks…

The Top 10 Ways Newt Gingrich Resembles a Spoiled College Student

If you have visited my blog before, you may think I am not fond of college students.  Nothing can be further from the truth.  I’ll admit that college students are young, prone to doing stupid things, and can be tremendously dangerous if given a supply of weapons.  As long as they don’t do any grievous harm, it’s easy to forgive them for their shortcomings.  For many students, it was their parents and teachers who spoiled them.  It’s not their fault.

I say this because I’m about to hurl a huge insult at these kids: I am going to compare them to Newt Gingrich.  So here are the top 10 ways Newt Gingrich resembles a spoiled college student.

10: Newt Gingrich has a voracious appetite for luxury goods that are way beyond his income level.

9:  When Newt Gingrich indulges in those luxury goods and runs up a sizable credit card bill, he seems to expect that someone else will pick up the tab.

8: Even when his closest confidantes abandon him, he still acts like he’s right.  (I can respect a man for taking a stand, and standing for a more intellectual political debate is a good thing.   But if you’re going to pay someone to impart their knowledge and advice to you, you ought to pay at least some attention to it.)

7: Newt seems to be too naive to understand that he must choose between taking an unpopular stand and winning people over.  A few select people can pull this off with the help of others, it it is truly arrogant to believe you can do it on your own.

6: Newt has had embarrassing sexual exploits he’d rather not discuss.

5: Newt seems unable to recognize that he is performing beneath the level of his peers.

4: Newt went on vacation when he was supposed to be working and expected to receive a free pass.

3: Newt blamed his family’s scheduling choices when he got caught going on vacation.

2: Newt seems to forget that no one cares how smart he was 5 or 10 years ago.

1: Although he is no longer young, he is still prone to doing stupid things and could be tremendously dangerous if given a supply of weapons.

Based on this list, I think we can all see that Newt Gingrich does not have the class to stand against Barack Obama.  Let us never forget: When Obama’s grandmother died right before his big test, she really did die.
