CNN Crossfire Host Newt Gingrich and State of the Union panelists reflect on the 2012 presidential election and Romney's campaign.
Gingrich: "We fought a very hard fight. I was very clear about what I thought about his tactics. And I think in the absence of an enormous financial advantage, he wouldn't have been nominee. And he ended up in the end about as we said he would. He didn't have the personality and he didn't have the ability to take on a guy of the caliber of Barack Obama and win the campaign."

In an exclusive interview with Candy Crowley today, Republican New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte called on President Obama for a “time-out” and convene a bipartisan group of Congressional leaders to fix Obamacare. She said that the ACA was passed on party lines and that Congress needs to work together to stop the bleeding. Ayotte said that the President should “Convene a group of bipartisan leaders to address health care concerns in this country because this is not working. I'm hearing it from my constituents and let's do this right as opposed to way this was passed in the first instance.”

Mike McCaul (R-TX) told Candy Crowley that LAX shooter Paul Anthony Ciancia was suffering from mental illness, as demonstrated by the suicide note that he left behind. The Chairman also said that the suspect’s family had alerted local New Jersey authorities about Ciancia earlier that morning, who then, passed this warning on to L.A. police but they “missed him by literally probably 45 minutes,” said McCaul.
