Newt DID hold back too long, and Santorum has been doing this since the beginning of this whole process. People just didn’t notice this until recently.
You are right on both counts. The smoke bombs laid by Rick to obscure and delay inspection of his record has flatly run its course!
None of this escaped Newt and when he calls Rick a “big labor” Republican, he has the goods to back it up.
This a watershed moment for Newt, where he launches a campaign in kind to ALL his opponents, for a great offensive to gain the South.
God be with us. And you, btw. :)
