So is anyone else wondering how long Newt is going to get away with Class Warfare?

    ....because that seems to be all Newt has on Romney right now. I thought that Conservatives, Tea Party Folks, and the GOP in general were against class warfare. So why is running against Romney's Millions, attacking his tax returns, attacking his business successes, etc, a winning plan for Gingrich?

    A man with a $500,000 line of credit at Tiffany's probably shouldn't be talking class warfare.

    No kidding. It's coming off as the Rich versus the Super Rich.

    But tactically, it's a mistake. Part of the GOP rallying cry against Obama have been cries of "CLASS WARFARE!" Obama himself seems to be embracing that for his 2012 campaign by aiming for a populist message. If Newt's the nominee, how can he complain about Class Warfare when he's spend the first part of the year going after the "Rich Guy" in the GOP primary. It just makes no sense.

    It's not working. It's backfiring. Or as libs used to say, he is only running to sell books and speaking fees.

    But seriously his line of attack will be his undoing.
