After Mitt “Willard” Romney’s embarrassing loss to Newt Gingrich in the South Carolina primary and his one-time lead in the polls in Florida collapsing around him, Romney has gone nuclear in his attacks on Gingrich.
Romney told NBC News:
“So I’ve had the experience of leadership. Now Speaker Gingrich has also been a leader. He was a leader for four years as speaker of the House. And at the end of four years it was proven he was a failed leader. And he had to resign in disgrace. I don’t know if you knew that. He actually resigned after four years in disgrace. He was investigated under an ethics panel and had to make a payment associated with that and then his fellow Republicans, 88 percent of Republicans, voted to reprimand Speaker Gingrich. He has not had a record of successful leadership.”
This is a new side of Romney. Gone is the robotic rhetoric, encased in the perfectly coiffed, blow-dried hair. Willard is gettin’ all gangsta’ now. The Republican primary is finally becoming fun to watch.
