Boynton Beach, FL (AP) - Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is
calling the State of the Union speech by President Obama "shallow
and lacking in seriousness."
Appearing at Bethesda Memorial Hospital in Boynton Beach on
Thursday, the Republican said he was still a month away from
deciding whether to run for president next year.
He didn't find humor in Obama's biggest laugh during his Tuesday
speech, either. The president illustrated government bureaucracy
with a joke about federal salmon laws.
Gingrich says "It's not a joke, it's too big."
Gingrich is fresh off a trip to Iowa, home to the country's
first presidential caucuses, where he met with lawmakers.
