Newt Gingrich has never been one to be the wilting flower. He had heavy criticism for former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and her disastrous management of the Obamacare roll out last fall, in his Saturday remarks in Manchester, N.H.

Gingrich, the former House speaker and Republican presidential candidate called Sebelius and assorted other Democrats "nut-cake ideologues" and less than competent.

The former House speaker was appearing at the Freedom Summit of conservatives in Manchester, N.H. Gingrich was among other prominent Republicans attacking the Affordable Care Law. It is the cornerstone of this fall’s GOP's strategy heading into the midterm elections.

His acidic opinion piece for CNN said Sebelius was "right to resign" after "delivering a breakdown when a breakout was possible. Americans should be able to expect that people who enter high public office will see their job as a public duty and will view faithfully serving the public and administering the laws as their solemn obligation," Gingrich wrote.

He accused Sebelius of being an administrator who operated "in a secretive and extraordinarily partisan manner that frequently ignored, violated and changed the law at whim."

The Obamacare law is expected to be the downfall for many Democrats is their election bids this November.
