Blog: The Convenient 11th Hour Newt-Bashing

Newt-bashing coming from notable conservative pundits as well as competing candidates is off-putting for a few reasons.

Newt Gingrich spent the most part of this entire campaign in the single digits in both the Iowa polls as well as the national match-ups.  The remaining candidates who stood on stage with him loved his taking on the media and his snapping back at the ‘moderators’ like Chris Wallace as well as Maria Bartiromo from CNBC.  They loved Newt’s call for Republican unity.  Everyone seemed on board including small-government purist, Ron Paul as well as that other frontrunner, Mitt Romney.

Of course, the moment Newt Gingrich became the frontrunner, the other candidates jumped ship.  Suddenly, an entire slew of attack ads came out in Iowa from the Ron Paul campaign against Newt Gingrich.  Similarly, the Romney campaign immediately went on the attack.  Then, of course, Romney’s “career politician” surrogates in Washington like John Sununu came out kicking and screaming.  Even Ann Coulter wrote many recent weekly columns bashing Newt Gingrich.
