    Trailing Mitt Romney in the polls in South Carolina and with Rick Santorum​ in his rear-view mirror before the nation’s “first-in-the-South” primary in South Carolina, which will be held on Saturday, Newt Gingrich​ needed to bring the house down in South Carolina on Monday during the FOX News/Wall Street Journal debate in Myrtle Beach. And he did. Gingrich received a raucous standing ovation for his back and forth with liberal moderator Juan Williams​. Williams asked Gingrich if he could see how his comments about how “black Americans should demand jobs, not food stamps” were viewed, “at a minimum, as insulting...
