I know Newt is just following the crowd condemning Romney, but his acerbic rebuttal was the best I have seen. Go Newt
“I’m very disappointed with Governor Romney’s analysis, which I believe is insulting and profoundly wrong. First of all, we didn’t lose Asian-Americans because they got any gifts. He did worse with Asian-Americans than he did with Latinos. This is the hardest-working and most successful ethnic group in America. They ain’t into gifts. Second, it’s an insult to all Americans. It reduces us to economic entities. You have no passion, no idealism, no dreams, no philosophy. If it had been that simple, my question would be, why didn’t you outbid him?
“He had enough billionaire supporters, if buying the electorate was the key, he could have got all his Super PAC friends together and said, don’t buy ads, give gifts. Be like the northwest Indians who have gift-giving ceremonies. We could have gone town-by-town and said, ‘Come here, let me give you gifts. Here are Republican gifts.’ An elephant coming in with gifts on it.”

Pretty ironic coming from Gingrinch. Not that his assessment is wrong, mind you, but in that he should have articulated that POV right through the general election. Rather than switch from Primary attack mode to supporter and then back to attack mode after Romney lost, why didn't Gingrinch put integrity ahead of party and simply refrain from endorsement or at least adopt a policy of radio silence? Because he's just as skanky as Romney in terms of politics — just better at it — that's why.
But his sudden defense of minorities — especially African Americans — is the very peak of hypocrisy, given his love of slobbering all over the racial dog whistles.
