Gingrich, Perry Backslide with Anti-Capitalist Attacks in New Hampshire - Yahoo! News
COMMENTARY | The real shocker about the New Hampshire GOP primary race was when Newt Gingrich, followed by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, fell into the rabbit hole of class warfare.
Class resentment has been a mainstay of Democrat politics for decades, and Republicans have always been quick to tell them so. What's different now is that Republicans Gingrich and Perry are telling them they're right.
Days before the New Hampshire primary, Perry joined Gingrich in condemning Romney's involvement with Bain Capital, a venture capitalist firm with more successes than failures.
Gingrich's intellectual prestidigitation only tricked himself, and damaged his reputation among GOP conservatives. Populist Perry should have resisted the temptation but didn't and followed Gingrich down the yellow brick road.
