Romney: Gingrich “A Failed Leader;” Tells “Interrupters” To “Take A Hike”

Posted by | January 22, 2012 21:13 | Filed under: Top Stories

Mitt Romney had  harsh words for both Newt Gingrich and for an audience member in Ormond Beach, Florida.

“At the end of four years as speaker of the House, it was proven that he was a failed leader,” Romney said. “He had to resign in disgrace. I don’t know whether you knew that.… His fellow Republicans – 88% of his Republicans – voted to reprimand Speaker Gingrich. He has not had a record of successful leadership.”

…At one point during his outdoor rally at a building supply company, Romney was interrupted by protesters chanting “We are the people.” He quickly dismissed them.

“No, actually, these are the people,” Romney shouted back. “These are the people; you’re the interrupters. We believe in the Constitution. We believe in the right to speech. And you believe in interrupting. Take a hike.”
