Gingrich: Romney would be ‘Obama-lite’

Former speaker labels his rival 'Obama-lite’

LAS VEGAS - Newt Gingrich labeled rival Mitt Romney “Obama-lite’’ yesterday, as the two candidates made their closing arguments before today’s Republican presidential caucuses in the key general election battleground of Nevada.

The former House speaker, in a stump speech retooled as polls showed him trailing badly in the state, said Romney revealed a big-government penchant like President Obama when the former Massachusetts governor said earlier this week he didn’t need to focus on the needs of the poor unless there is a hole in the social safety net.
