Newt Gingrich on Mitt Romney then: “You cannot be president of the United States if you cannot be honest and candid with the American people. [...] I’m standing next to a guy who [has] the most blatantly dishonest answers I can remember in any presidential race in — in my lifetime. I don’t know how you debate a person with civility if they’re prepared to say things that are just plain factually false.”
Newt Gingrich on Mitt Romney now: “This morning on Meet The Press, Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs confronted Newt Gingrich on a fundamental inconsistency in Romney’s description of his tax plan. During the primary debates, Romney insisted that everyone in America would get a 20% tax cut, including the 1%. But last week’s during his debate with Obama, Romney insisted that his tax cut would not reduce taxes at all for wealthy Americans. Gingrich acknowledged the clear inconsistency, saying “I think it’s clear he changed.” He described the change as “good politics.”
Lying, shape shifting, etch-a-sketching, flip-flopping — it’s all good politics to the Republican Party (when you’re doing it to someone in the Democratic Party). Do these guys ever feel embarrassed over the things they say?
