Club For Growth Says Gingrich Should Apologize To Romney

Understandably, Newt Gingrich’s attacks on Mitt Romney and Bain Capital — which sound a lot like Democrats’ attacks — and paint Romney as a greedy capitalist aren’t going over with some conservatives. The Club for Growth, for example, has issued a statement urging Newt to abandon this line of argument and apologize to Romney:

Newt Gingrich’s attacks on Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital are disgusting,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “There are a number of issues for Mitt Romney’s Republican opponents to attack him for, but attacking him for making investments in companies to create a profit for his investors is just wrong. Because of the efforts of Bain Capital, major companies like Staples, Domino’s Pizza, and the Sports Authority now employ thousands of people and have created billions in wealth in the private economy. Attacking Governor Romney for participating in free-market capitalism is just beyond the pale for any purported ‘Reagan Conservative.’ Newt Gingrich should stop his attacks on free markets and apologize to Governor Romney for them.”
