I realize that Kristol has been all over the map... and his claim that anybody who didn’t like Romney or whatever was an “Obama Republican” was beyond grotesque.
But on this particular issue- why not just address his basic point?
Maceman clearly addressed Newt's so-called 'Negativity':
"I think that if Newt wins the nomination, and people actually watch him campaign, his negatives will drop significantly.
Watching him in the debates, he comes across as bright, tough, quick, courageous, knowledgeable, clear-headed and calm.
In fact, I think he comes across as very presidential."

Newt Gingrich showed an ability last night that he is on a level of a great communicator. If he can do it once he can do it again. The Republican candidate has to have the ability to articulate ideas about the issues above and beyond the norm so that conservative ideas resonate with the American citizens. A Resonator that goes over and through the leftist Main Stream Media who are an arm of the Democrat party.
