Gingrich: Romney baited, caught me

Newt Gingrich on Fox News this morning, talking about how he veered into angry, little attack muffin mode (as coined by Peggy Noonan).


"I got tied into $20 million of negative ads by Romney in Florida, and I responded by behaving too much like a normal candidate.

I think twice I've led the race as a front-runner in national polls -- both times it's big on big ideas."

Admitting that you have a problem with self-discipline doesn't solve it, and Gingrich lost self-control at the moment he needed it most.
