Mitt Romney denies coordinating with Restore Our Future, the pro-Romney super PAC responsible for a barrage of negative ads against Newt Gingrich. (3:47)

PRIDE AND HOPE.

SADLY, IT WAS A ROUGH NIGHT FOR

NEWT GINGRICH, COMING IN FOURTH

PLACE THANKS TO A BLISTERING

BARRAGE OF NEGATIVE ADS.

IN DECEMBER NEARLY HALF OF ALL

POLITICAL COMMERCIALS IN IOWA

WERE ATTACKS ON NEWT GINGRICH.

IT GOT SO BAD EVEN NON-POLITICAL

ADS WENT AFTER HIM.

♪ I'M LOVING IT

UNLIKE NEWT GINGRICH

♪ WHO LEFT HIS WIFE ♪♪

>> Stephen: NOW, MOST OF THESE

ADS WERE PRODUCED BY THE

PRO-ROMNEY SUPER PAC.

BUT I DON'T BLAME MITT, HE

COULDN'T HAVE STOPPED THE ADS IF

HE WANTED TO.

>> SUPER PACS HAVE TO BE

ENTIRELY SEPARATE OF A CAMPAIGN.

I'M NOT ALLOWED TO COMMUNICATE

WITH A SUPER PAC IN ANY WAY,

SHAPE OR FORM.

>> SO YOU'RE NOT COORDINATING

WHATSOEVER?

>> IF WE COORDINATE IN ANY WAY

WHATSOEVER, WE GO TO THE BIG

HOUSE.

>> Stephen: THAT'S RIGHT, THE

BIG HOUSE, THE SLAMMER, THE

GRAY-BAR HOTEL, THE HOOSEGOW,

THE WINDY CITY, MONTEZUMA'S

REVENGE, 23 SKIDOO.

THE POINT IS, IT IS NOT ROMNEY'S

SUPER PAC.

IT IS A SEPARATE ORGANIZATION

FOUNDED BY ROMNEY'S LAWYER, FOR

WHICH ROMNEY HAS PERSONALLY

RAISED MONEY AND THAT IN TURN

HAS SPENT $2.8 MILLION THE

SUPPORT HIM.

TOTALLY SEPARATE.

THE SAME WAY THAT CHANG WAS

SEPARATE FROM ENG.

BUT FOR SOME REASON NEWT

GINGRICH DOES NOT BELIEVE IT.

>> ARE YOU CALLING MITT ROMNEY A

LIAR?

>> YES.

[LAUGHTER]

>> YOU'RE CALLING MITT ROMNEY A

LIAR?

>> WELL, YOU SEEM SHOCKED BY IT.

YES.

>> WHY ARE YOU SAYING HE'S A

LIAR?

>> THIS IS MAN WHOSE STAFF

CREATED THE PAC.

HIS MILLIONAIRE FRIENDS FUND THE

PAC.

HE PRETENDS HE HAS NOTHING TO DO

WITH THE PAC.

IT'S BALONEY.

>> Stephen: BALONEY.

THOSE ARE STRONG WORDS COMING

FROM MAN WHO IS ONE-EIGHTH COLD

CUT.

HIS GRANDFATHER WAS AN OLIVE

LOAF.

AND NOW NEWT HAS THE KNIVES OUT

FOR MITT ROMNEY.

LISTEN TO THESE NOT-SO-VEILED

THREATS HE ISSUED LAST NIGHT.

>> WE ARE NOT GOING TO GO OUT

AND RUN NASTY ADS, BUT I DO

RESERVE THE RIGHT TO TELL THE

TRUTH.

AND IF THE TRUTH SEEMS NEGATIVE,

THAT MAY BE MORE A COMMENT ON

HIS RECORD THAN IT IS ON

POLITICS.

>> Stephen: OH, MITT, YOU HAVE

MADE A FATAL MISTAKE.

YOU MAY HAVE WOUNDED NEWT.

BUT YOU LEFT HIM ALIVE.

AND ALONE WITH HIS FIRST LOVE --

HATE.

NEWT'S WOUND WILL NOW FESTER,

OOZING A PUSTULENT RAGE WHICH

WILL RENDER DOWN INTO LIQUID

VENGEANCE AND THEN POUR INTO THE

TIP OF A SINGLE HALLOW-NOSED

BULLET AND THEN FIRE INTO THE

HEART OF ROMNEY ROOM'S DREAMS

AND DANCE AND CACKLE ON THE

GRAVE OF YOUR HOPES.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

BUT NOT IN A NEGATIVE WAY.

[LAUGHTER]

NATION, PERSONALLY I CANNOT WAIT

FOR THIS WEEKEND'S DEBATES IN

NEW HAMPSHIRE BECAUSE WHEN MITT

ROMNEY LEAST EXPECTS IT, NEWT

GINGRICH IS GOING TO TURN TO HIM

AND SAY...

>> HELLO.

MY NAME IS NEWT GINGRICH.

YOU KILLED MY CAMPAIGN.

PREPARE TO DIE.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

>> I THINK THAT MAKES RON PAUL
