Rand Paul kicks Newt Gingrich while he’s down

Not too long ago, Newt Gingrich said with 100% certainty, "I'm going to be the nominee."

It's got to be hard watching something you think you're entitled to slip away.

Tensions have long been high between the two camps. Ron Paul's presidential campaign recently released a torrent of negative ads against Gingrich, who led public opinion polls Iowa until just a few days ago. This week, Gingrich said he would not support the Texas congressman if he is selected as the Republican Party's presidential nominee.
