WASHINGTON - Former US House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich on Sunday tried to turn Bill Clinton's rousing Democratic convention speech into a liability for President Barack Obama, calling it "eerily anti-Obama."

Gingrich, who unsuccessfully sought the Republican presidential nomination that went to Mitt Romney, argued that Clinton's efforts to remind voters about the economic heyday of his two terms in office could be seen to undermine Obama, who is struggling to reignite the economy and job growth.

"I actually thought parts of the Clinton speech were eerily anti-Obama, if you just listened to the subtext. I mean, here is Clinton saying, 'I reformed welfare because I worked with the Republicans, you didn't, Mr. Obama.' He didn't say it that way, but think about it," Gingrich told CNN's "State of the Union."
