"Newt Gingrich Serial Hypocrisy 60 second" +
:60 ad run starting Dec. 7, 2011 in IA.

[Music] Gingrich (clip from Dartmouth debate): If you want to put people in jail, let's look at the politicians who created the environment, the politicians who profited from the environment...

...the politicians who profited from the environment...

various news announcers:
Newt Gingrich on the defense for taking one and a half million bucks...

...after he left Congress, Freddie Mac paid Gingrich at least $1.6 million...

...$1.6 million some of it just before the housing market collapsed.

A think tank founded by Newt Gingrich collected at least $37 million from major health care companies...the group supports individual mandates...

Newt Gingrich renewed his support for individual mandates, a key tenet of President Obama's health care law.

Rush Limbaugh: Support for an individual mandate!  Folks don't ask me to explain this.

unidentified announcers (audio):
Everything that Gingrich railed against when he was in the House, he went the other way when he got paid to go the other way.

He is demonstrating himself to be the very essence of the Washington insiders.

Male Announcer: It's about serial hypocrisy.

Paul (voiceover): I’m Ron Paul and I approve this message.

Notes: From the Dec. 6 press release:

...a shorter 60-second version of an earlier web advertisement that challenges former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on a group of issues dear to conservative voters.
Much of the ad is in the former Speaker’s own voice, and after a few statements by Newt it features news clips about the former Speaker’s lobbying ties to government mortgage giant Freddie Mac, a firm that helped perpetuate the financial crisis and recession. In addition, the spot showcases discussion of Newt’s lobbying ties to healthcare firms prior to his support of an Obama-Pelosi-Reid individual mandate as part of the recent wildly unpopular healthcare reform, to the absolute horror of nationally-syndicated conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. 
The campaign is shipping the ad to Iowa TV stations today, and it will be going up as part of an expanded Paul buy in Iowa beginning on Wednesday. It will run in conjunction with Paul’s other new ad, ‘Big Dog’.
“We wanted to ensure this ad reached as many voters as possible, to debunk the myth that the Newt we are seeing on the 2012 campaign trail is the conservative he has been touted to be all along,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton. 
“The voters are looking for authentic conservatives who are able to show a decades-long career of consistently walking the walk of Constitutional principles, limited government, and promoting sound economic policies.  Ron Paul is the only Republican presidential candidate with that record.”
