Gingrich: Romney May Be Too Rich to Grasp Rising Gas Prices’ Cost

Newt Gingrich took a shot at Mitt Romney’s wealth today in an interview.

“If you’re Mitt Romney and you’re rich enough, maybe you don’t get it,” Gingrich said on Fox News, via GOP12, in response to a question about Romney’s comment that Gingrich’s campaigning on cheap gas was pandering.

“If Romney wants to run as the candidate of high-priced gasoline, that’s fine with me,” Gingrich added later in the interview. “We’ll lump him in with Barack Obama, which is the same as Romneycare and Obamacare. So maybe it’s also Romney high-priced gasoline, and Obama high-priced gasoline.”
