One of the differences between Mitt and Newt is that Newt wasn’t in office when he did these things that he is being criticized for. Newt made speeches saying things that conservatives don’t like “Reagan era is over” or praising FDR or the individual mandate during the 1990’s, and he did things like the ad with Nancy Pelosi out of office. Mitt was in office when he did things that conservatives dislike. I’m not voting for either.
Very astute points.
Where Gingrich has praised some leftist legislation, Romney signed it into effect.
You’ve given Newt the strongest, most valid defense that’s available to him for all of his political derelections. IMHO it’s enough to get me to support him vs. Romney, but not Perry.
