Sour Grape Politics
Regarding why he did not congratulate Mitt Romney on his Florida win, Newt Gingrich said the following:
"They outspent me five to one to quote destroy Newt Gingrich?" Gingrich said in an interview on CNN’s "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer." "You know, I think that doesn’t deserve congratulations. I think that’s reprehensible, I think it’s dishonest, and I think it’s shameful."
I can understand why he feels that way. However, this is the kind of thing one typically keeps to oneself.
Further, Gingrich is complaining about the established rules of the game. If he truly believes what he is saying I look forward to his post-election crusade to radically restructure American campaign finance and the like. It would, no doubt, be entertaining.
