Newt is a psycho and a liar – but no one ever said he wasn’t the guru of negative campaigning. The real Newt is coming out, after that brief taste of real candidacy was hammered by Mitt’s SuperPAC ads.
Gingrich says Bain Capital Looted Companies:
“Those of us who believe in free markets and those of us who believe that in fact the whole goal of investment is entrepreneurship and job creation,” Mr. Gingrich said, “we find it pretty hard to justify rich people figuring out clever legal ways to loot a company, leaving behind 1,700 families without a job.”
The video itself (link below) is REALLY hard-hitting. This is a side of Romney that most (apart from Mass natives) have only heard hinted about – and Newt has lost none of his ability at negative campaigning.
My take is that Romney is being set up nearly perfectly as the personification of all that “Occupy WallSt” was about. Obama’s main REAL (actual) weakness, going into the re-election, was that he bent over for WallSt. Romney as the GOP pick neatly eliminates Obie’s main weakness; here’s a guy who says “Corporations ARE people, my friend!”. This is analogous to 2008, where Obama’s main REAL weakness was his inexperience…until McCain put Sarah Palin on the ticket.
