NH publisher: Dems would bash Romney's wealth

On Fox News today, the New Hampshire Union Leader's publisher, Joe McQuaid, trotted out another reason for supporting the paper's candidate of choice, Newt Gingrich.

"I think -- and this is crazy, but so are we -- that Gingrich is going to have a better time in the general election than Mitt Romney.

I think it's going to be Obama's 99% versus the 1%, and Romney sort of represents the 1%."

Obviously, McQuaid isn't attacking Romney for being part of the 1%; he's just suggesting the Obama campaign will do so.

Btw, the electability angle is a new one from the paper. In their Sunday endorsement, they didn't mention it.
