Newt Gingrich and I go a long way back to the beginning of the Reagan supply-side revival of free market capitalism.  I thought we shared that philosophy.  But his attacks on Bain Capital using the class envy language of the left against capitalist success is a great disappointment to me.  Newt resumed that Bain attack when he said in Florida that Mitt "lives in a world of Swiss bank accounts and Cayman Island accounts and automatic $20 million income for no work."

Romney's success earned his income.  And his successful investments all represent market opportunities. However, once again I fear that Newt is all too willing to sacrifice his principles for political expediency in the heat of the campaign.  Here is the interview with my criticisms and Newt's responses.
