Gingrich gains momentum heading into Florida

Columbia, South Carolina (CNN) - Newt Gingrich told supporters chanting, "USA, USA," at his South Carolina primary victory party on Saturday night that they had captured the heart of his campaign.

"The fact is we want to run not a Republican campaign - we want to run an American campaign," he said.

    One funny thing to watch will be which candidates, if any, seek Gov. Scott's endorsement and which, if any, will not seek it based on Scott's abysmal approval numbers.

    We better give Gingrich a credit. Though he was very much hammered by his party by attacking Romney on Bain Capital, demanding Romney to release his tax returns, he brought a legitimate discussion not only in S. Carolina but nationally.

    Newt said Thursday night on CNN debate

    "I think the destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media makes it harder to govern this country, harder to attract decent people to run for public office.”

    He was in FOX pay roll and he used FOX News platform to distract government so he has to blame him self

    Sarah Palin doesn’t read news paper that is media fault
    Herman Cain weakness media fault

    don’t forget, Gingrich was part of the establishment that created the rules that allowed the investment firms and banks to setup a finance meltdown scheme and then bet against it. Costing people homes and jobs and their retirements. It has been reported this started all the way back to Reagan era (his hero?). And now he’s complain that Ronmey was more successful in using the rules he helped create. He’s just jealous that he was not able to use the rules as well Romney. He admitted he was part of the group that created the rules. Ron Paul admitted in the debate that the republicans had control of the house, the senate and the president but did nothing or worse, they created the finance mess. Now Gingrich wants to do it all over again? Has any republican stated how reduce regulations will keep it from happening again? Come on republicans, speak up.

    Boy if Newt would win, remember he said he would give Sarah an important position, so who wants to see Sarah in the White house. That should stop him from winning right there. Stop and think about it.
