Iowan to Gingrich: Get out now before you make a bigger fool of yourself 

Bill Bennett and Paul Ryan are not the only ones unhappy with Newt Gingrich’s Meet the Press performance yesterday. The Des Moines Register reports:

As he was getting ready to leave a speaking engagement Dubuque resident Russell Fuhrman approached him in the lobby of the Holiday Inn:

“Get out now before you make a bigger fool of yourself,” Fuhrman said directly to Gingrich.

Gingrich, visibly stunned, quickly moved forward to talk with other guests.

Fuhrman told The Register afterward that he just happened to be at the hotel. He said he’s upset with Gingrich’s disagreements with parts of the House Republican Medicare reform plan.

Fuhrman said he’s a solid Republican but that Ginrich “is a jerk.”

“I’m a strong Republican but he’s an embarrassment to our party,” Fuhrman said.

As Matt Lewis mentioned earlier today, Newt may need to stop campaigning and start worrying about the lasting damage he already has done to his brand.
