The Republican primary has finally boiled down to three candidates: Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
And each has a similar campaign strategy. Ron Paul is smartly running on his record of being a consistent conservative over 30 years. Flip-floppers Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are likewise smartly running on Ron Paul's record of 30 years of ideological consistency.
Is it any wonder why Newt Gingrich has said he doesn't want any "negative" campaign ads?
Newt has been working his way up the polls by copying off the smart kid's paper, Ron Paul. Until recent months, there's been no daylight between Newt and Obama on the issue of the individual mandate. Now, like Ron Paul, he calls it "unconstitutional." Likewise, Gingrich's opposition to global warming legislation took place after the Nancy Pelosi commercial promoting it. Guess who opposed global warming legislation all along? Gingrich has also suddenly discovered the evils of the Federal Reserve after doing nothing about it when he was Speaker of the House (and was in a position to prevent the economic bubbles this nation has suffered) at a time Ron Paul was screaming for action.
