Obama Campaign Compiles Newt's Greatest Hits on Romney

New Web video shows Gingrich's attacks against the presumptive GOP nominee.

 

 

On the day that Newt Gingrich is dropping out of the Republican presidential primary, the Obama campaign released a greatest hits video of his attacks on Mitt Romney.

The 90-second Web spot, called “Newt Gingrich: Frankly, not Mitt Romney's biggest supporter,” shows clips from various television appearances, debates and campaign events where the former House speaker often lambasted the former Massachusetts governor.

From attacks on Romney's changed positions to Bain Capital, the video could be a painful reminder to Republicans of their bloody primary fight. In the early primary states—where Gingrich secured a victory in South Carolina—Gingrich was a frequent Romney critic, landing effective blows during debates and memorable lines during television appearances. Sitting down with CBS, he even went as far as to call Romney a liar.

Wednesday's video also shows Gingrich’s attack on Romney’s Swiss bank account—an attack that the Obama team hurled at Romney in a separate web ad on Tuesday.

In response , the Romney campaign skirted Gingrich's quotes and the Obama campaign video, instead turning attention to the economy--the subject of their latest online video.

“President Obama and his campaign will do anything to avoid talking about his record of failure—and they certainly don’t want to talk about his plans to increase taxes on entrepreneurs and small businesses," Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg said in an email. "Too many Americans are struggling to find good jobs and make ends meet. Instead of working to fix the economy, President Obama prefers to point fingers and launch political attacks. Americans deserve better over the next four years.”

 

On the day Newt Gingrich is dropping out of the Republican presidential primary, the Obama campaign is out with a greatest hits video of his attacks against Mitt Romney.

The 90-second web spot, called “Newt Gingrich: Frankly, not Mitt Romney's biggest supporter,” shows clips from various television appearances, debates and campaign events where the former House speaker often lambasted the now-presumptive nominee.

“Newt Gingrich is throwing his support behind Mitt Romney,” text reads in the beginning.  From attacks on his changed positions to Bain Capital, the video could be a painful reminder to Republicans of their bloody primary fight.

In the early primary states—where Gingrich secured a victory in South Carolina—Gingrich served as a thorn in Romney’s side, landing effective blows during debates and memorable lines during television appearances. Sitting down with CBS, he even went as far as to call Romney a liar.

The video also shows Gingrich’s attack regarding Romney’s Swiss bank account—an attack that the Obama team hurled at the former Massachusetts governor on Tuesday with its newest attack ad.
