    Gingrich Shows He's No Intellectual By Missing Obama's Point


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Liberty1955 is a frequent video commenter at and CNN iReport.
    - nsaidi, CNN iReport producer

    Newt Gingrich said the President raised the race issue when President Obama said Trayvon Martin could have been his son.

    Race? Really, Newt? Sounded more like empathy on our President's part to me, but then Gingrich comes from a dark place anyways. Does he remember raising the race issue himself in Iowa?

    Republicans, in general, are not like some of their leadership. They are decent folks just wanting to get along with everyone and treat all with respect. But some of their so called leadership uses the race issue to further their political aspirations.

    Gingrich shows he's no intellectual by his remark about the Trayvon Martin situation- a situation that obviously, Gingrich has a hard time getting his mind around.
