Newt Gingrich's press conference at the Iowa State Capitol was interrupted this morning by a group of protesters from the 99 Percent Movement, who yelled at Gingrich from behind the podium, and then later followed him as he left the Capitol, the Des Moines Register reports:

They yelled at Gingrich as he walked away:

“You gave me 10 seconds, sir.  What if I had a million dollars. Would I get 10 minutes? How about an hour?”

“Speaker Gingrich, you can run but you can’t hide. We’re going to come for you everywhere you go.  You can’t show your face in public without seeing us.”

“You say you don’t like super PACs. How much money are super PACs spending on your campaign right now?”

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

It was also discovered today that the web domain NewtGingrich.com redirects visitors to embarrassing stories about the candidate.

  3. Goddamnit guys, can't you see that a strong Newt candidacy will help Obama get re-elected? The single best thing for Obama would be if Newt won. But he should at least maintain a strong primary candidacy so that Mitt has to run to the extreme right to secure the nomination, giving him less time to run back to the centre for the general election.

  4. "The problem" in a campaign is to meet people who has an opportunity to say what they think. I wonder, what Newt was thinking.

  5. I know this may sound counterintuitive but is it possible the republicans really want Obama to get another 4 years. It sure looks to me like they're offering us their dumbest....and then saying..."you choose".
    Did anyone of them put their GED's to use or are they all just hoping we won't notice how ignorant they are?
