Either the class envy of the left has seeped further into the supposedly "conservative" bloodstream than any of us wants to admit, or else Newt Gingrich
and Rick Perry
are willing to sell out the principles of capitalism for their own political gain. Either way, their attacks on Mitt Romney are beneath them -- and do more to undermine their own conservative credentials than they do Romney's record.
There's something ironic, at least for me, in seeing Romney routinely derided as the flip-flopping ideological opportunist in this race when Gingrich and Perry are selling out the principles of free enterprise that they've long claimed to champion in increasingly desperate bids to win votes.
Go after Romney all you want. It's child's play compared to what the Obama people will do. But I'd hoped for better than Occupy Wall Street-type rhetoric from two men who have long tried to define themselves as the true "conservative" in the race.
