Willard Mitt Romney handed the win to Newt Gingrich, a disgraced forced out of Congress past Speaker of the House. Romney's pedestrian handling of the issues, acting like he had something to hide with the tax returns and Gingrich's appealing to the lowest common denominator in South Carolina made all the difference. This is probably the weakest offering from the Republican party in recent years. And that is with taking in account McCain/Palin, which really demonstrates the current line-up's "bottom of the barrel" quality. Mr Obama's re-election team are on record saying they are pleased with Gingrich's win. Mr Gingrich's background is full of issues. History has proved lacks discipline and lets his ego get the best of him. He is the author of the very tactics he has come out sounding like a wounded bear when practiced against him.
it's a marathon, not a sprint
