The Public Papers of the Presidents contain most of the President's public messages, statements, speeches, and news conference remarks. Documents such as Proclamations, Executive Orders, and similar documents that are published in the Federal Register and the Code of Federal Regulations, as required by law, are usually not included for the presidencies of Herbert Hoover through Gerald Ford (1929-1977), but are included beginning with the administration of Jimmy Carter (1977). The documents within the Public Papers are arranged in chronological order. The President delivered the remarks or addresses from Washington, D. C., unless otherwise indicated. The White House in Washington issued statements, messages, and letters unless noted otherwise. (Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States.

Mitt Romney
Press Release - Conservatives React to Newt's Attack on Romney's Private Sector Experience
December 15th, 2011

"Newt Gingrich comes from the world where politicians are paid millions after they retire to influence their friends in Washington. Mitt Romney comes from the private sector, where the economy is built by hard work and entrepreneurial drive. It's clear that after 30 years as a Washington insider, Newt Gingrich has no clue how the real world economy works. After 25 years in business, Mitt Romney understands how jobs come and go, and what we need to do to get our economy back on track. If Newt Gingrich is our party's nominee, the choice in next year's election will be between two professional politicians, two Washington insiders, two people with no experience in the real world of job creation." —Tom Stemberg, Staples Founder

The Weekly Standard's Fred Barnes: "Newt Gingrich has adopted an anti-free market argument — a favorite of the political left — to criticize Mitt Romney." (Fred Barnes, "Gingrich Hits Romney From The Left," Weekly Standard, 12/12/11)

  • Weekly Standard Headline: "Gingrich Hits Romney From The Left" (Weekly Standard, 12/12/11)

American Spectator's Joseph Lawler: "Gingrich has basically adopted the language of the anti-corporate left with this line of attack." (Joseph Lawler, "Gingrich Attacks Romney From The Far Left," American Spectator, 12/12/11)

  • American Spectator Headline: "Gingrich Attacks Romney From The Far Left" (American Spectator, 12/12/11)

The Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin: "Gingrich is still his own worst enemy and the best witness to debunk the canard that he's a tea party, pro-free market guy." (Jennifer Rubin, "Gingrich Slips: Shows His Nasty, Anti-Free Market Self," The Washington Post, 12/12/11)

  • Washington Post Headline: "Gingrich Slips: Shows His Nasty, Anti-Free Market Self" (The Washington Post, 12/12/11)

National Review's Jim Geraghty: "Didn't take Newt long to adopt an MSM/Dem line of attack against a rival, huh? Almost like ‘right-wing social engineering.'" (Charlie Spiering, "Newt Trashes Romney For ‘Bankrupting' Companies," Washington Examiner, 12/12/11)

The Atlantic's David Graham: "By choosing to take sides with Democrats and attack Romney from the left, Gingrich is putting himself in a bind. ... With Republican voters, however, he's clearly misstepped." (David A. Graham, "How Gingrich's Attack On Romney And Bain Backfired,"
