Newt Gingrich: Democrats' 'Super Bowl Team' Beats GOP's 'Mid-Level College Team' On Technology

Posted: Updated:

Newt Gingrich took a hit at Republicans Sunday, comparing the GOP's "mid-level college team" to Democrats' "Super Bowl team."

Gingrich reflected on the GOP's rebranding while on ABC's "This Week." The former presidential hopeful said the issue Republicans have with technology is "a culture problem," and that Democrats are using "the most advanced decision processes" to communicate with constituants.

“[Democrats] are a Super Bowl team that we ought to respect deeply, and we are currently a mid-level college team floundering around,” Gingrich said. “This is a fundamental re-thinking on how you relate to the American people.”

This isn't the first time Gingrich has criticized the GOP. Gingrich slammed the GOP's lack of diversity in House committee chairs as "a real problem" in November 2012, and he hit Republicans for using "a threat they can't sustain" on the debt ceiling in January.
