    In Florida, Romney Takes Aim At Resurgent Gingrich

    By Philip Rucker and Amy Gardner January 22

    ORMOND BEACH, Fla. — Mitt Romney unleashed his harshest personal attack of the campaign on Newt Gingrich here Sunday, saying “it was proven that he was a failed leader” as the former governor pivoted sharply to regain his footing in the wake of Gingrich’s stunning resurgence over the weekend.

    As the dramatically altered presidential campaign moved to Florida, Republican leaders braced for a long and potentially bitter nominating contest. After upending the campaign in South Carolina with a commanding victory, Gingrich moved quickly to capitalize on it. He launched an aggressive fundraising blitz — aides said his “money bomb” raised $1 million in eight hours — and hired new staff to help him compete with Romney as the contest moves to a much more expensive front.

    Romney, meanwhile, tried to recast the race as a choice between two kinds of leaders. “We’re not choosing a talk show host,” Romney told an evening rally of more than 500 in Ormond Beach. “We’re choosing the person who should be the leader of the free world.”

    “Speaker Gingrich has also been a leader,” Romney said. Then he brought up the ethics investigation into the former House speaker. “At the end of four years, it was proven that he was a failed leader, and he had to resign in disgrace. I don’t know whether you knew that. He actually resigned after four years in disgrace.”

    Romney also sought correct his handling of his taxes, saying he would release his most recent returns on Tuesday and acknowledging his previous reluctance to do so was a “mistake.”

    Gingrich is a failed leader. His fumbling idiocy helped get Clinton re-elected, and two years later he crashed the party on the rocks in the 1998 elections.

    He was booted out on his ass by his fellow Republicans, and so he sulked off to go work for Freddie Mac and helped create the sub-prime crisis as payback.

    This is the guy they are now scraping off the bottom of the barrel to take on Obama. :lol:

    Gingrich is increasingly becoming a caricature of himself, it is a sure sign of an imminent rapid political decline.

    I finally figured you out. Over all the boards. Cripes. You make it easy. So now Huff Po boy, you were saying about Newt?

    I've got you where I need you child. And I'll push you up against that wall.

    I know Ormond inside and out. I pretty well grew up there. I've surfed every wave coming in.

    If Romney is going to play on ethics, it's for sure a dem move. Shows his line of thinking. Fuck him now hard. Romney is deadto me.

    Give it your best shot. You've already swung and missed, idiot. I'm a lifelong Republican. If you really read my posts, you'd know that.

    So, strike one. Try again.

    Absolutely!

    Two government shutdowns for which Gingrich was blamed by the public.

    Highest negative ratings in the polls of all elected leaders.

    Most of his Contract for America had failed to pass.

    United States federal government shutdown of 1995 and 1996 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    See, Gingrich's sabatoging a fellow Republican is not something new. He's an old hand at it.

    STRIKE TWO!
