“As people look at his record and they imagine him debating Obama, Obama’s going to laugh at him,” Gingrich said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “Obama’s going to say, ‘I developed Obamacare based on Romneycare. I even brought your staff into the White House in order to develop it.’”
The former House speaker rejected the suggestion that his presence in the race is dividing up the anti-Romney votes and thereby giving the former Massachusetts governor a better chance of securing the GOP nomination.
“We’ll gradually coalesce. One of us will emerge as the conservative alternative,” he predicted. “That conservative alternative will beat Romney.”
