Looks like Newt is going to try to knock out Romney now. It will be interesting to see how well it works in NH.

Gingrich has been off his “high road” claim for a while and is dropping rapidly to his preferred lower routes. We only wait to see if he goes into the swamp before he drops out.

Just yesterday “gutter” Gingrich took off the gloves and was calling Romney a liar for not saying he was (illegally) calling the shots with a Super PAC which is endorsing him, and today “the Super PAC affiliated with Newt Gingrich” starts taking shots at Romney.

We all know Gingrich is a proven liar – so does that mean he is illegally calling the shots for his affiliated Super PAC?

Newt wrote the book on negative political speech. Added a chapter in 1994 when he blamed the drowning of two boys by their mother who had been sexually abused by her republican step father on democratic government.
Now he wants to write another chapter on an ideas campaign for president based on social media. He would never be where he is now without big budget, media driven, negative campaigns; so he needs to put his really big boy pants on and walk off the stage…

Obama is the one to beat. Mitt Romney is to liberal and doesn’t support the second amendment. Mitt has romneycare and has appointed left-wing judges. Romney is too passive towards democrats and their agenda.

Romney was a rare Republican in Massachusetts which is a liberal state. He readily admits he had to make considerable concessions with his Democratic legislature to get things done. Conservatives need to cut him a little slack. Governing in a Democracy with a split party government is not done well from a dictatorial position. Just think what Obama could have accomplished if he attempted compromise and included Republicans in legislation and appointments. Romney certainly moved that state toward the middle from its normal political left. Romneycare has very little similarity to Obamacare, and he has said he will fight to radically change or repeal Obamacare.

Newt’s PAC has every right to air this. Romney as well as Paul certainly had no problems airing Gingrich’s flip flops. Face it, this is common with politician.
It is ashame Romney is the best the Republican party can come up with…Iowa proved voters are just not enthusiastic about him. 6 years campaigning and over 7 million dollars spent and he only gained about 50 votes from 2008. He is a decent guy, but I just don’t think he will beat Obama.

@ DOUBLE:

I am happy for forgive Mr. Newt. I’d even forgive O.J. Simpson. But there’s a world of difference between forgiving a man and putting him back in a position of public esponsibility. No ******* way.

[...] Newt Gingrich: Grinch has allowed Mitt Romney to get his goat and distract him from his one talent: spinning off ideas. He bemoans the negative ads that Mitt Romney’s Super PAC is churning out against him, so much so that he has vowed that he will begin going after Mitt Romney. This isn’t Romney’s fault. Thanks to the inanities of campaign finance law, the Wall Street Journal editorial page points out that Romney is legally prohibited from admitting what everyone knows: his allies and former aides are behind the ads. He refused to congratulate Romney on his win and is running fourth in New Hampshire. He may well make a stand in South Carolina or Florida, where he is still the presumptive front runner, but then again he was the front runner of Iowa just two weeks ago.  Gingrich has vowed an alliance with Santorum to take out Romney, who has thus far been something of a teflon candidate, and for all Gingrich’s disapproval of Super PACs, he seems to have forgotten that he has one, too.
