Former House Speaker and Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich says Obama has “checked out!” because he chose to make an appearance on ESPN to talk about his NCAA tournament picks, instead of focusing his attention on all the crises in the world. But Newt seems to have overlooked the fact that not a single world crisis took pause while he was on Fox News focusing his attention on the President. And, I might add, offering his own NCAA tournament pick.
I must admit, however, that I was surprised by Newt’s choice and his apparent knowledge and understanding of the game of basketball. He chose Duke, because his best friend from high school went there.
Crises of the world lookout! Here comes Newt!
