Gingrich: Romney lacked personality to beat Obama

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."
