Former congressman and current Freedom Works Chairman Dick Armey said he’s given up on trying to get a conservative Republican in the White House and instead is focusing on the House and the Senate.

“We are left with the dilemma that we are not going to get a reliable,
small-government conservative out of this nominating process,” Armey said
Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “That’s why we’ve focused our
attention on the House and Senate. “We’ll build a legislative wall. We’ll
either be walling a Republican president in or walling a Democratic
president out.”

He slammed Gingrich by saying the second-place finisher in the Nevada caucus won’t “be able to repeat that magic moment he had in South Carolina” and then criticized him for lashing our against Mitt Romney during his post-election speech.

“I think he’s digressed into a state of taking a second-rate campaign and turning it in to a first-rate vendetta,” Armey said. “So much of Newt’s whole life is overstated. He overstates the case in such a hyperbolic fashion, it just looks vindictive.”
