WOLF: Obama supporters, Democrats, White House officials, Obama campaign officials say they look forward to running against you. They’re nervous about Mitt Romney.
NEWT: I remember in 1966, Governor Pat Brown, Jerry Brown’s father, was really concerned about a moderate Mayor of San Francisco named George Christopher. He really wanted to find some right-wing actor that he could beat easily. They were thrilled that Ronald Reagan was running. Reagan beat him by a million votes.
I am perfectly happy for the Obama people to decide that they want to beat up on Romney. It’s a little tough on Romney, but that’s fine with me. When we get to the general election, if I’m the nominee, after the president has those seven, three-hour debates, we’ll see how they feel about it.
Presidential candidate, Newt Gingrich, discusses his time as Speaker, foreign policy, education, healthcare, Israel, and his personal life.
