Gingrich most undoubtedly has some baggage, but being anti-Reagan is not one of those bags. This would help explain the endorsements by Michael Reagan and former Reagan economic advisor Art Laffer, as well as Nancy Reagan passing the conservative torch to Gingrich at a 1995 Goldwater Institute dinner honoring Ronald Reagan. Perhaps it is the Romney supporters who are concerned that it will finally bubble to the top that it is in fact Romney who has repeatedly distanced himself from Reagan in the past, (See videos below) as well as telling reporters that he is a moderate and a progressive, which are not exactly Reagan-esque.
Romney and his supporters just got caught with their hand in the cookie jar.
