The Armada of Attack Pieces Headed Newt’s Way

In my interview yesterday with the former House Speaker, I asked Newt if he thought he could survive the Chicago gang’s relentless exploitation of his long and very public career. (The full transcript and audio of yesterday’s conversation is here.)

This morning Conor Williams tweeted a link to Grist.org’s David Roberts’ big knock on Newt for a familiar sin –his couch ad with Nancy Pelosi. The post is titled “Newt Gingrich will never be president; I will never stop loving this video.”

Old ground, right? And the Speaker yesterday told me he has his “There you go again” rebuttal ready.

But that tactic worked for Reagan because there was one stage and one moment in which he could repudiate all the Carter attacks with a nod of the head and a sly smile. In this era of a million outlets and tens of thousands of talented search-and-destroy oppo researchers working for free, it is going to take a great deal more than one approach to battle back against the armada of attack pieces headed Newt’s way from Chicago should he be the nominee.
