CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) Mitt Romney is mocking Newt Gingrich's long record in Washington and says conservative tea party voters eventually will reject the former House speaker who's Romney chief presidential rival.
Romney tells reporters in South Carolina that he thinks the state's tea party voters will turn on Gingrich because of his work for the mortgage company Freddie Mac and his consulting time in Washington....

And we are supposed to turn to Mitt?
Good luck with that thought Mr. 28%.
Bwahahahahahahaha. Snicker, snicker, hehehehehe, hahahahaha, your are a funny one Mitt. No way will most Tea Party people vote for you in the primaries. Forget it.
The guy who shuns the base and tea party probably has no idea what the tea party will do. Political tin ear.
Look at their accomplishments. Newt allied himself with Ronald Reagan to build the Reagan Coalition, the Religious Right, and the Republican majority (together the Reagan Revolution) which directly led the downfall of the Soviet Union, the Contract with America, government reforms, less government, tax cuts, a balanced budget, and the great, long-standing Reagan economy.
Romney, on the other hand, vehemently denied Ronald Reagan and aligned himself with Ted Kennedy and the left. Romney accomplished installing liberal big government programs, defended and promoted Roe v Wade and legalized abortion as settled law, advocated and implemented RomneyCare with its liberty killing government mandates against formerly free citizens and its taxpayer funded or subsidized and mandated abortion procedures. He ran and governed to the left of Ted Kennedy on the gay agenda resulting in gay marriage in Massachusetts. He appointed liberal judges and liberal appointees throughout his government. Under his leadership conservatism and the Republican party was all but destroyed in Massachusetts.
Romney is one evil liberal progressive. No way in hell will MittBots be allowed to support this abortionist, big government, socialist scumbag on FR!
Guess my message isnt clear enough. I have to keep repeating it and zotting would be MittBots.

RINOs all -- Tied to the navel of Soros and Sharia.
Two backstabbing misogynists working together against America and conservatives again.
It really appears she would do whatever it takes to get on the good side of the Establishment Republicans, and was probably promised the VP slot if Romney-the-RINO wins the Nomination.
Yeh..and they’ll turn on you too, Mitt.
HANG IN THERE RICK!
Geez, where’s he been? The Tea Party isn’t all of one mind on everything — because y’know, we’re not Demwit zombies. Thanks 2ndDivisionVet.
Says Mr. Global Warming.
Based on what? Nikki Haley’s endorsement?
Margaret “Hoople” Hoover was trying to say that Nikki Haley’s endorsement gives Romney “Tea Party credibility” last night, on Hannity’s show.
I sent her this Tweet: @margarethoover You RINOs don’t get it. Nikki Haley’s endorsement doesn’t give Romney Tea Party credibility. It diminishes hers
Turning on Gingrich does not equal turning to Mitty.
“You RINOs dont get it. Nikki Haleys endorsement doesnt give Romney Tea Party credibility. It diminishes hers...”
Amen, brother. I was thinking that EXACTLY. What the hell is that gal smoking?
Which will drag down Nikki Haley, not boost up Mitt Romney.
Shucks paw,Leroy is a real threat to Willard. Else’n why would he be talk’n crazy like that bout Leroy when everyone know’ds the tea party can’t stand McRomney?
A vote for Romney...Is a vote for McCain.
You know that just don’t come any slimmer than Willard... His brown shirts have been taking down conservatives for the last few years to pave the way for his ascension. He took out Palin with lies and a unholy underground alliance with the MSM. I just want to puke when I hear his voice... it is the voice of a snake.....
Romney does not have the strong determined conservative personality to be successful as President. Gingrich has a personality that will hit hard and will not compromise with the communists Democrats. He also will take no crap from the courts that attempt to legislate from the bench and recommend that the legislative body correct the court or impeach. That kind of strength will move America back to a Constitutional conservative land. The rest of the candidates are just not strong enough to move much. Forget Ron Paul who is mentally ill.
South Carolina holds its first-in-the-South primary Jan. 21. Gingrich leads Romney in South Carolina polls and has emphasized his tea party support.'nuff said.
If we get through the SC primary and Mith has won only NH, I'd say he's in trouble.

***Looks like Mittens’ endorsement by our Govenor Hikki Halley***
She is not MY Governor. She is a flighty, silly, naive opportunist. She took the GOP establishment bait and will choke on it.
One term Nikki.
If we get through the SC primary and Mith has won only NH, I’d say he’s in trouble.
I wish that were true, but unfortunately the primaries until 1 April are divided by percentages on how they won. So Mitt could end up getting second or even third in every state and still be pretty strong. After 1 April, it is winner takes all, but those tend to be the blue states and Mitt could win most of those. This might be a horrible election after all.
Romney, the architect of ObamaCare accepted by the tea party? I don’t think so. FUMR!!
If the Tea party rejects Newt, they certainly would not back Romney.
Romney doesn’t even show up on my distant radar screen.
Mitt must have promised Nicki a really good cabinet post. It won’t help as Newt is running away with SC and Fla.
I watched that Haley/Romney endorsement Presser and was totally outraged. Haley looked like a Romney groupie and did a disservice to the TEA party individuals who supported her.
GOP Governors and other elected officials should stay out of the Primaries. They prop up losers temporarily but are ultimately devisive and destructive.
Good riddance when she loses in 2014.
Hey mittens, hope in one hand and sh*t in the other. See which one fills up first.
[ I’m not sure just how Nikki Haley was bought off, but it sure doesn’t sit well with true Conservatives to have her jump the shark and endorse Romney-the-RINO. ]
Haley is going one direction South Carolina will go another..
Haley has exposed the HORN on her nose.. mistake!!!
This needs to be repeated constantly. The entire Romney clan including his father and mother have been fighting the Reagan wing of the Republican Party since Ronald Reagan emerged on the national scene. The apple didn't fall far from the tree. Any claim this phoney makes about being a Reaganite or conservative is ludicrious.
I respect the fact that Next has decided to not go negative, but I am afraid that the general GOP electorate will not do enough of their own research about the candidates. Unfortunately alot of them will listen to the liberals at NRO, and the media.
Someone needs to have a commercial that details Mitt’s record. Otherwise, he will continue to attack Newt and pretend to be the most conservative option.
I am not a fan of Romney or in fact any candidate in the race. Gingrich is smart, intellectual idea guy, who will be good for cabinet position. If you really think, Obama will debate gingrich for more than 3 debates or the moderators(who will be from main stream media) allow gingrich to shine, you are insane. Matter of fact, people who don’t follow politics like us, will see the contrast between Obama and Gingrich and will vote for the better looking candidate. Also, do you honestly think social conservatives will vote for Gingrich(after 3 marriages)?
6 months back, i was crying in this board for Paul Ryan. Some of them said, we need him in the congress. Finally I was hoping for Rick perry and he screwed up his image with all those early debates.
what to do? We have only Romney left and I think, probably he can beat obama because of his organizational setup which will be better than other republican candidates
You listen to too much Liberal TV. By next Nov my dog Buddy could win again’st Barry Soetoro. The social conservatives and evangelicals are forming up behind Newt right now. Thats why he’s the front runner in the GOP race. He is the only candidate who if nominated will ridicule, criticize and taunt Obama on a daily basis all the way up until election day. Every time Obama gives a speech Newt will show up 4 hours later and rebutt it. After a day or two the press will only be showing what Newt said. Its beautiful.
Best case, we find a good, conservative, Tea party candidate, and get rid of her.
Worst case, we drag her (kicking and screaming) slightly back to the Right.
The TEA Party will throw both into the harbor.
Good. As far as the governor goes I have emailed my displeasure with her stupid endorsement.
But, it seems he has promised that to so many, how will he ever fulfill his promises? ROFL
GO NEWT, the anti establishment candidate. He needs to run that in his ads.
I agree. However, it was payback time as Romney made big noise when he endorsed Halley.
OT: We need to make sure this "I-95 Corridor" boondoggle goes away forever!
When the first frost hits hell it will.
Levin says bye bye Nikki after Haley endorsed Romney
“people who dont follow politics like us, will see the contrast between Obama and Gingrich and will vote for the better looking candidate.”
Are you kidding? Obuma looks like a cadaver someone pulled off the coroner’s overdose slab.
