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.)
