Gingrich's 2012 campaign leaves him with mixed legacy

Washington (CNN) - Newt Gingrich will leave the Republican presidential campaign with a mixed legacy and a campaign deep in debt.

The former speaker was left for political dead last year after his top campaign advisers quit over a disagreement on the direction of the campaign and its financial structure. But he came roaring back in late 2011 - due in part to a Republican electorate that was not sold on Mitt Romney's candidacy. It is the past few months, though, for which he may be most remembered - for staying in the race for too long, rather than for the big ideas he espoused on the campaign trail.

    He'll be back. Back on FOX. It's an election year. Newt is too big of a talent at rattling off scathing diatribes and those infamous Gingrichian verbal admonishments to let go to waste. Besides, he needs the money. He'll either be working for Romney or FOX.

    Newtie will always be known to me as the hypocrite who led the charge against Clinton for getting a BJ while he himself is a serial cheater and adulterer.

    Now go hide under that rock you crawled out from Grinch.

    OBAMA 2012!
