(Newser) Former Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich isn't exactly speaking highly of his former colleagues. While at a town hall event in South Carolina last night, the GOP contender was asked about whether, as president, he would support funding for certain HIV/AIDS treatments. "What you said is information that’s new to me, I don’t know enough about it to give you a direct answer," Gingrich responded. But he didn't stop there, notes Raw Story. "One of the real changes that comes when you start running for president—as opposed to being an analyst on Fox—is I have to actually know what I’m talking about," he quipped. "It's a severe limitation." (Click for more buzzy Gingrich news.)

Don't like the guy, political views aside the guy had an affair while his wife was dying of cancer, yeah real great guy. On the other hand while he's a scumbag, he's not a complete idiot like the rest of the GOP lot. I think Stephen Colbert said it best "the GOP candidates look like a turn out for a used couch sale on craigs list" So he might actually stand a chance in the running.

Careful Newt , after Obama gets re-elected you'll be back at Faux entertainment sucking on the tit.

He'll recant by the end of day, or by the end of the week, I'm sure.
