National Review Bashes Gingrich

National Review really doesn’t like Newt Gingrich. While the conservative journal praised the GOP frontrunner for persevering when his campaign looked dead, it asks the GOP—in a 1,200-word editorial—to “reject a hasty marriage” to the candidate. Gingrich’s “impulsiveness, his grandiosity, his weakness for half-baked (and not especially conservative) ideas” make him a dangerous candidate who would jeopardize the GOP’s chances of winning the election. Along with his history of questionable ethics, National Review hits at his personal life: “Very few people with a personal history like his—two divorces, two marriages to former mistresses—have ever tried running for president.” Who wins the magazine's endorsement? At this point, no one.
