Paul - not Romney - leads anti-Gingrich offensive

With Newt Gingrich now surging in the polls, the first Republican presidential candidate to attack him in a paid TV ad isn’t Mitt Romney. Or Rick Perry. Or Michele Bachmann.

Instead, it’s Ron Paul.

The Texas congressman has emerged, arguably, as Gingrich’s most vocal critic -- at least for now -- cutting a web video from last week that was scathingly critical of the former Speaker into a 60-second TV spot for air in Iowa.

"We wanted to ensure this ad reached as many voters as possible, to debunk the myth that the Newt we are seeing on the 2012 campaign trail is the conservative he has been touted to be all along," Paul campaign manager Jesse Benton said in a statement.

Gingrish is the poster boy for everything wrong with Washington. The establishment is truly panicking now for them to have to have to rely on this globalist arrogant sociopath with his record in order to keep Paul out of the Oval Office.

Newt is the McCain of this election cycle and going after him is the same as trying to prevent possible WW3 from occurring.

Good for Dr. Paul.
