Newt Gingrich, "Wrong" and "Dumbfounded," Stumbling into Nixon Library

A "wrong" and "dumbfounded" Newt Gingrich is coming to the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda later this month. The former House speaker and 2012 candidate for the GOP presidential nomination used those adjectives to describe his pre-election prediction that Mitt Romney would win in a landslide.

The partisan Nixon Foundation is hosting Gingrich and his wife Collista Gingrich, who are both hawking books.

Mr. Gingrich, who had Romney winning more than 300 electoral votes and 53 percent of the popular vote, has said that Republicans have to investigate how they are getting election procrastinating so wrong.

The Gingriches will sign copies of their books at The Dick following the 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27 presentation. Tickets are $6-$8, not including book purchases. Go here for more details:
