Gingrich to Romney: Do to Obama what you did to me
Posted by CNN's Gregory Wallace
(CNN) - Newt Gingrich on Friday urged Mitt Romney to go after President Barack Obama in next month's debates with a gusto the former House speaker knows well.
"When he walks in to debate Obama, he's got to be as tough with Obama as he was with me in Florida," Gingrich said in an interview on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."

-—— Keep in mind he had the media on his side against Newt and he had a substantial money advantage against Newt. It is kind of hard to do the same thing to Obama when the media simply refuses to run any negative stories against the one and the money advantage isnt there.-——
Good point. I’ve seen some good anti-Obama ads here in MA, even if they are PAC-funded.
Some of Newt’s damage was self inflicted. Gingrich slams Ryan budget plan as ‘Right wing social engineering’.
“Gingrich slams Ryan budget plan as Right wing social engineering.”
He was speaking of a mandate Ryan had in there and Ryan has removed that.
“But he also witnessed reactions in SC and a fiery Newt. And then he returned the fire.”
You are right. After SC, Romney hit him hard.
B.O. ads are running 24/7 here in Iowa right now. It's nauseating and endless.
LOL - who saw that comin’?
Since I live in a reliably very red state, I don’t see much of the ads by either side.
Yep. The Romney ads here attacked Gingrich for his ‘personal issues’ and insinuated that Santorum supported abortion. Romney can be a viper. When he wants to be.
Early voting has already begun in many states. Maybe it is time for Romney to crank it up, if he is ever planning on doing so.
Brilliant Uncle Newt.
Unless obama has similar luck, I believe it will be a landslide for Romney, with or without Romney's help, but it would be better if he didn't take that thought for granted and stepped up his game instead.
obama is a one term, way beyond Carteresque disaster that his supporters can't defend. Voters aren't clueless, just uninformed. Romney needs to change that, but if he doesn't the PACs will do if for him.
Let the obamanation's unraveling continue...followed by the indictments.
Good advice as well as carpet bombing BO with the same type of negative ads he buried Newt with.
Perhaps one might use this for a litmus test: Newt is rooting for Romney to win because the Nation is more important than anything else....
I saw Gingrich saying this on one of the Fox programs the other night, iirc. He was matter-of-fact about it, in my opinion.
Nonetheless, as I heard Gingrich nailing the administration to the wall over Egypt, Libya, and other things, I couldn’t help but wish one more time that Newt was the one carrying the banner. Too bad.
< a moderate like Romney is too concerned about reaching the middle >
Exactly. Like the rest of the Establishment Republicans, Romney thinks the undecided are Democrats-Lite, like he is.
Yea, I was for Newt, it wasn’t pretty. I wish Romney would take some advice or use both Newt and Sarah on the campaign trail but it is what it is. ABO.
