It's a sign of a self-actualized, mature adult to accept responsibility for one's failings, attempt to correct them and to acknowledge the lessons learned.

Then there's Newt Gingrich.

Never to be mistaken as a self-actualized, mature adult, Newt Gingrich has already blamed his philandering on his great love for his country. So is it little wonder that when he flops in his one purported skill that will allow him to beat Obama--debating--it is someone else's fault?

[Guest host Jake] Tapper noted that both of Gingrich’s surges in the polls were thanks to his powerful debate performances, and asked him what happened during both debates last week, where many analysts thought Romney came out much stronger and helped himself get back into the lead in Florida. Gingrich conceded he did not do his best at the debates, but had an explanation all ready.

“I was amazed. I’m standing next to a guy who has the most blatantly dishonest answers I can remember in any presidential race in my lifetime… I don’t know how you can debate someone with civility if they’re prepared to say things that are factually false.”

Gimme a break. You can dish it out but you can't take it, Newt. Like all big bullies, Gingrich is bluster with nothing behind it, folding like a house of cards when someone is able to push back.

*This* is the GOP's last, great hope for besting Obama in a debate? Hehehehehe...thanks, GOP.
