Paul Comes Out Punching

By on 12.5.11 | 3:51PM

Ron Paul's campaign is going after other Republicans agressively today. Here's his new ad that will run in Iowa and New Hampshire: 

As in-your-face as the ad is, its tenor is deferential relative to the campaign's scathing response to Newt Gingrich's defense of Donald Trump from Paul's criticisms, given to Politico:

"We agree, of course, with former Speaker Gingrich - this is a country of people of enormous talent. Those who deliver thousands of babies like Dr. Paul and those who spend their time focusing on promoting themselves for profit. We even have those who lobby, but don't call it such because, as they say, they can make $60,000 per speech. While those of us in the Paul camp might disagree with Newt Gingrich about whether Donald Trump is the right man to host a serious political debate, we do agree New York is a wonderful place to go at Christmas. We are sure two average Americans like Speaker Gingrich and Donald Trump will have a wonderful time picking out gifts for their wives. We suggest a place called Tiffany's, we her it is quite nice this time of year and given their celebrity status they can probably get special deals and $500,000 lines of credit."
