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.

    Awesome! I have wanted this man to run for over 10 years. He has the ideas and hopefully he can convince the rest of the Washington crowd to get with the program

    No thanks Newt - we don`t need or want another "contract on america". Keep you college teaching job, it gives you a better opportunity to brainwash many of the young who may help fill the ranks of the GOP and who knows - one may take your place one day.
