Cooter On Newt: “He Would Probably Like To Be Emperor Of The Planet”
Ben Jones, the former Dukes of Hazzard actor and former congressman who ran against Gingrich, isn’t a fan.
It speaks to his ambitions,” he said. “He is the most ambitious person I ever met. He would probably like to be emperor of the planet if there was such a position.”
Gingrich is a “demagogue” who “appeals to the worst in people, their fears,” Jones said. “If he were to become the President of the United States it would be disastrous to our country,” he said.
“It would be the worst thing politically to ever happen to our nation. He’s not worthy of the position,” he said.
Jones thinks this is partly because Gingrich is not “especially bright,” and partly because he’s “the most overrated public figure I’ve ever known.”
