    Newt Gingrich: I crossed the line
    Newt Gingrich: I crossed the line - Jonathan Allen and Jake Sherman - POLITICO.com ^ | 1/11/12 3:13 PM EST | By JONATHAN ALLEN and JAKE SHERMAN |


    SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Newt Gingrich signaled Wednesday that he believes his criticism of Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital is a mistake — and that he’s created an impression that he was echoing Democratic rhetoric.

    Gingrich conceded the problem when pressed by a Rick Santorum supporter at a book-signing here Wednesday.

    Democrats and Republicans sound the same these days because they are.

    Either the GOP gets behind conservatism and repents its ways, or its time for conservatives from both sides of the isle to move on. Let the liberals decide if they want to be called democrats or republicans.

    So, Ol Newt pulls the chicken switch in hopes of keeping the hopes of the 2nd spot alive?

    How cynical.

    Sounds like the Paul Ryan fiasco.

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shoot me if I haven't learned.

    Newt is done

    All's fair after all the attack ads Romney ran against Gingrich in Iowa according to many.

    Perry is even attacking Romney for "vulture capitalism". I'm trying to get a grip on it, but apparently Romney's Bain Capital did a lot of damage to the SC economy.

    Hey these guys are in it to win it. Romney threw down first.

    I for one am enjoying the battle. I'm sick to death of coronations.

    Yes he did cross the line. Gingrich should have immediately addressed the negative add campaigning that he got nailed with in Iowa--instead of letting it go for 3 solid weeks. He should have described his relationship with Freddie Mac in detail--and defended or at least explained all the other negative ads.

    He didn't--and this is the result. If by some miracle he can pull this on out in S. Carolina remains to be seen.
