Given that Newt Gingrich rose quickly to the top only to fall back into place as a third tier candidate, its quite natural that he would be unhappy about it. Rather than find some ways to restart his campaign, he starts complaining about the attack ads that Ron Paul and Mitt Romney have unleashed on him.
Newt Gingrich is especially unhappy with the Romney's Restore Our Future Super PAC:
"Well, that makes my point," Gingrich said. "If you see Romney, ask him to take them off the air. I mean, you know, it would be nice if candidates were responsible for the things being done by the people who know them personally who are trying to help them get elected.”
He later closed his 37-minute session with this: "Ask (your friends) if they run into one of these candidates, to tell them they ought to be ashamed of themselves, to take this junk off the air. And don't hide behind some baloney about the superPAC that I actually have no control over that happens to be run by five of my former staff. That's just baloney."
What was Mitt Romney's response? Watch below to see Mitt Romney tell Newt Gingrich that if he's unhappy with the advertisements Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are running, just wait until he becomes the GOP nominee and Obama starts running ads against Newt:
Here's a transcript of Mitt Rommey's statement in the video above:
“I know that the speaker would like to say,’we shouldn’t have any negativity.’ But look, if you can’t handle the heat in this little kitchen, the heat that’s going to come from Obama’s Hell’s kitchen will be a heck of a lot hotter. We need to show, as Republicans, that we can stand up to the barrage that’s going to come from the Obama-world,” he said..
If Newt can't handle the pressures of these ads now, he certainly won't be able to handle the attack ads from Obama. As the old saying goes, "if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen." Perhaps he ought to drop out of the race now before the heat in the kitchen starts to get hotter.
