Someone is a little upset that he went from first to fourth in just a few days. That’s right, Newt Gingrich is less than happy about the results of the Iowa Caucus last night, and he’s placing the blame at the feet of Mitt Romney.
"Other than the fact that Governor Romney ran a relentlessly negative campaign of falsehoods, which earned one of his ads four Pinocchios from the Washington Post?" Gingrich said at a news conference Wednesday. "The fact is, three out of four Republicans rejected him. Gov Romney is a moderate Massachusetts Republican to the left of the vast majority of Republicans. I find it amazing that the media continues to say he's the most electable Republican when he can't even break out in his own party."
“Newt was pissed. This guy, I honestly think this guy, if he doesn't think he can win, all he's going to do is try to take Romney out,” Stu said.
Stu noted that Gingrich, in stark contrast to his treatment of Romney, offered nothing but praise to Rick Santorum.
Gingrich had promised to not run a negative campaign and he became increasingly frustrated by Super PACs associated with Romney attacking him. Romney did nothing to denounce the ads.
“Well, apparently he gets angry when anybody talks bad about him,” Pat joked.
