"There is something truly obscene about the full blown assault on Newt Gingrich’s strong Reagan conservative history from and on behalf of Mitt Romney, who unabashedly ran away from the Reagan legacy and conservative principles in his 1994 Senate campaign and 2002 gubernatorial campaign. Truly obscene."
That’s how William Jacobson begins his article titled: Nancy Reagan 1995: Ronnie turned that torch over to Newt. No mincing of words. Direct and to the point. Jacobson states that the smears on Gingrich have been a shameless sea of lies helped in part by Drudge in an effort to help a desperate Romney.
To set the record straight Jacobson presents a video clip of Nancy Reagan at the 1995 Goldwater dinner. Nancy tells the dinner attendees how Ronald Reagan passed the conservative torch on to Newt Gingrich. Not Mitt Romney who a year earlier had stated in his MA senate race debate that he “was an Independent during the time of Reagan-Bush.”
We have another person coming out of the woodwork to clear Newt’s name. And again, someone with video evidence and courage to set the record straight.
