Newt Gingrich on 'The O'Reilly Factor'

O'Reilly spends a lot of time on Gingrich's aggressive stand against activist judges. That's just not that controversial to me and seems like a diversion from a lot of other issues, like the economy. At the second half of the clip Gingrich responds to his decline in the polls and whines about running an exclusively positive campaign. O'Reilly mentions the piece from yesterday's New York Times, "In Murky Republican Contest, the Clearest Target Is Gingrich." I wish O'Reilly would have mentioned Marc Thiessen's essay at Friday's Washington Post, "Gingrich’s abortion contortions." Mitt Romney, speaking to O'Reilly earlier, made a pretty good case for his pro-life bona fides. It would been nice to hear Gingrich make the case for his.
