Newt, say it ain't so...

Newt Gingrich's tendency to eschew the traditional political rhetoric and speak the straight-talk is, without doubt, an endearing trait. However, while Mr. Gingrich's candid and forthright style is indeed an admirable asset, his latest strategy in which he appears to be borrowing the typical left-wing, anti-capitalist talking points to attack Mitt Romney, describing the former Massachusetts governor as a greedy, profit-driven CEO, is depressing, to say the least.

And, while Newt may feel as if his back is pressed against the wall, due to the negative attack ads that the Romney campaign has used against him - borrowing the typical, anti-capitalist talking points from the likes of Barack Obama is not befitting an individual of Mr. Gingrich's stature. It's disheartening. What else can I say?
