MORGAN: You know, I'm fascinated, gripped in fact, by what you're about to tell me about what you make of the Bain Capital fury, given of course you yourself hammered Mitt Romney in the ground over this. What do you think of what Cory Booker said?
GINGRICH: Well, I think Booker is telling the truth about how the American people feel. I am very surprised that President Obama went down this road for two reasons. First, we found out when we got in a fight with Mitt Romney over this that it didn't work. That people understand free enterprise. People understand realized sometimes you succeed, sometimes you fail. But they refuse to take a one-sided view of it.

Actually bashing Romney as a corporate raider worked quite well for Newt in the South Carolina primary. Polls and such showed that working class folks were turned off by Willard's dark past.
Newt's momentum was only ended when Willard affiliated Super Pacs started dropping down gazillion dollar ad buy in Florida highlighted Newt Gingrich's shameful past. All they had to do was tell the truth about Newt. While this would be easy for most to do, telling the truth is always a challenge for Willard Milton Romney. But he pulled it off.
Once Newt's unfavorables were driven back to his normal level of disgrace, Willard was able to Weasel his way to victory setting up the third tier Santorum as the conservative alternative last crazy candidate standing.
Newt knows this all. He just such a douche bag that he can pretend that he never said what he said and never did what he did.
Is it not yet time for Newt to retire to a farm.
