I was wondering when someone would bring out the Mike Huckabee line from the 2008 campaign, when he was attacked by Romney much the way Romney attacked Newt in this election cycle.

Romney always starts it.  He did it in Iowa in December 2007 against Huckabee and McCain,  and in Iowa 2011 against Newt; now he’s going after Rick Santorum as well.  And when the recipient of his negativity hits back, all of the sudden the media narrative is that the opponent is going negative.

This ad by Newt (not his SuperPAC) should be run all day and night long on television in South Carolina, but it appears that it’s only a web ad.  So pass it along to everyone you know in South Carolina.
