Armey: Gingrich on 'Vendetta' Against Romney Sunday, 05 Feb 2012 12:09 PM By
Amy Woods --Former congressman and current Freedom Works Chairman Dick Armey
said he's given up on trying to get a conservative Republican in the White
House and instead is focusing on the House and the Senate. "We are left
with the dilemma that we are not going to get a reliable, small-government
conservative out of this nominating process," Armey said Sunday on CNN's
"State of the Union." "That's why we've focused our attention on
the House and Senate. "We'll build a legislative wall. We'll either be
walling a Republican president in or walling a Democratic president out."
He slammed Gingrich by saying the second-place finisher in the Nevada caucus
won't "be able to repeat that magic moment he had in South Carolina"
and then criticized him for lashing our against Mitt Romney during his
post-election speech. "I think he's digressed into a state of taking a
second-rate campaign and turning it in to a first-rate vendetta," Armey
said. "So much of Newt's whole life is overstated. He overstates the case
in such a hyperbolic fashion, it just looks vindictive."
