In past contest Newt Gingrich has labeled Mitt Romney a "Massachusetts Moderate". Today Mr. Gingrich upped the intensity of the attack calling the former govenor a "Massachusetts Liberal". As the former house speaker's prospects begin to shrink in Florida and the relevancy of his campaign seems to be called into question he has criticized the character of the front runner and indicated that he is simply too "dishonest" to be president. This ironically coming from the only sitting Speaker of the House to be found guilty by his peers of ethics violations. This is only the newest attack from the Gingrich campaign that seems to be below the belt and increasingly infantile.
When providence works against the former speaker he bemoans the "republican elite", the "media elite", the "old guard", etc. The one figure Mr. Gingrich does not lay blame on is his own performance in the primary. After a dismal debate performance he doesn't lick his wounds and prepare for the next contest like other candidates but dwells on the defeat and levels charges of a "stacked" audiences and other similar excuses for the reason behind the upset. This demonstrates poor sportsmanship and juvenile serial whining. Nothing new from the man that shut down government over the seating arrangements on Air Force One while in route to the funeral of Yitzhak Rabin.
I don't think the Romney campaign has addressed these grievances and I don't think they will. These attacks will only hurt the former speaker. America does not smile on a poor sport. We like to win and the only thing we dislike more than a looser is a poor one. Over the next several weeks the race will get even more nasty on all sides but we have to remember that we need to come back together as conservatives to defeat President Obama and the democrats no matter who the nominee turns out to be.
