Gingrich Says He Would Have Done Better

Newt Gingrich told the Huffington Post that Mitt Romney was a bad presidential candidate and he blamed the Republican party "for fostering a corrosive culture that produced Romney as its candidate."

Said Gingrich: "I think either Rick Perry or I would have probably done better."

He said the Obama campaign was "begging for Romney," growing more and more confident of their chances against the former Massachusetts governor as the Republican primary progressed.

But he said Romney "was mainly the byproduct of a consultant-dominated GOP culture whose risk-averse mindset shielded candidates and stunted their ability to respond dynamically to different points of view."
