Newt regrets Florida primary debate performaces



"I'd love to do the two Florida debates again." -- Newt Gingrich moments ago on CNN.

He said he was buried with negative ads and had trouble responding in debates.

Gingrich also said Mitt Romney's is to blame for his poor performance among Hispanics. Romney during the Tampa debate uttered the infamous "self-deport" comment. “That is the most anti-human phrase you can imagine,” Gingrich said on CNN.

During the Florida primary Gingrich called out Romney for his rhetoric but other Republicans mostly stood by. Sen. Marco Rubio even denounced Gingrich.

Now, of course, most Republicans agree with Gingrich's view.
