Scathing New Ron Paul Ad Blasts Newt Gingrich for ‘Serial Hypocrisy’

(By Tiffany Gabbay, The Blaze) - In what the Wall Street Journal called one of the “most scathing” political ads of the year, Texas congressman and GOP presidential contender Ron Paul released a hard-hitting new web video attacking rival Newt Gingrich. The ad, entitled “Newt Gingrich: Serial Hypocrisy,” features multiple clips of the former House Speaker strung together in an attempt to make the Contract with America author appear like a dangerous flip-flopper.

One instance features the now infamous ad in which Gingrich appeared with Rep. Nancy Pelosi to address climate change, while another clip highlighted the occasion when Gingrich called Rep. Pau Ryan’s budget plan “right-wing social engineering.” In an attempt to cast additional doubt on the candidate’s value system, the ad notes that Gingrich was paid at least $1.5 million by Freddie Mac.
