DNC: Newt Is the Original Tea-Partier


Obama may or may not actually care who the Republican candidate is — but the DNC is definitely not ignoring the GOP race. On Sunday, the DNC released an ad focusing on Gingrich (as opposed to Romney, who’s been the DNC’s primary target until now) and calling him “the Original Tea Partier.” The ad shows clips of Gingrich saying very tea party-like things, such as vowing to kill the Department of Education, ending Medicare, and promising to protect tax loopholes. At one point Gingrich says on-camera, “I’m Newt Gingrich, and I’d like to invite you to a party. A tea party.”
