Newt Gingrich: Obama will laugh at Mitt Romney

Newt brought an excellent observation. If Romney gets the nomination, Obama will destroy him with Romneycare. Obama will destroy Romney as being part of Wall Street. If Romney is willing to attack Obama, the GOP can win in 2012. If not, Romney will be another John McCain. Honestly, we need one more candidate to leave to see who will get the GOP nomination. Currently, it is a tie. With Michelle Bachmann out of the race, we will see who her voters will support. The only weak link is Rick Perry. Assuming he will drop out of the race in the coming weeks, we will begin to see who will ultimately lead the GOP primary.

(Politico) Newt Gingrich said Friday that if Mitt Romney becomes the Republican presidential nominee, President Barack Obama will simply “laugh at him.”

“As people look at his record and they imagine him debating Obama, Obama’s going to laugh at him,” Gingrich said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “Obama’s going to say, ‘I developed Obamacare based on Romneycare. I even brought your staff into the White House in order to develop it.’”

And just days ahead of the New Hampshire primary, Gingrich said that a bad performance in the Granite State would be fatal for Romney, while downplaying his rival’s victory in Iowa last week.

“This is one of his three best states, along with Utah and Massachusetts. If he doesn’t win here, he couldn’t stay in the race,” he said. “In his so-called win in Iowa, having campaigned for five years and spent, I think, $20 million, he got 25 percent. That’s one out of four. Three out of four said no after five years of campaigning.”
