Blaming Gingrich for Romney's Loss

Many Romney insiders blame Newt Gingrich's attacks in the GOP primaries for Mitt Romney's loss in the presidential election, Fortune reports.

Said one consultant: "No one in the campaign believed that Republicans would attack business enterprise in a primary contest. That was, in hindsight, a big mistake."

The source goes on to explain: "By late summer there wasn't even one particular thing he did at Bain that really mattered anymore. In fact, you didn't even have to say Bain. People just instinctively believed that he had outsourced people, fired people, not cared about people. It wasn't about what had actually happened, or about policy. It wasn't substantive. But it got the job done.""
