Posted on 01/03/2012 6:45:42 AM PST by Daffynition
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, whose support in Iowa has withered after riding on top of the polls, on Tuesday called former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney a liar who would mislead the American people if elected to the White House - but added that he would still vote for him if Romney won the GOP nomination.
On CBS' "The Early Show" this morning, CBS News chief White House correspondent Norah O'Donnell asked Gingrich about comments he had previously made about his chief rival and the Super PAC whose negative campaign ads have hurt his campaign: "You scolded Mitt Romney, his friends who are running this Super PAC that has funded that, and you said of Mitt Romney, 'Someone who will lie to you to get to be president will lie to you when they are president. I have to ask you, are you calling Mitt Romney a liar?"
"Yes," Gingrich replied.
"You're calling Mitt Romney a liar?"

..politicians liars....sheeesh what’s next
Ummm...so is Gingrich. All politicians are liars.
Gingrich just found out why in the past couple weeks.
Newt is right again. If you buy this two-faced approach to winning then it is really a sad day. Mitt needs to be shown the door. He will lose to Obama because many (like me) will go fishing if he is the nominee. And spare me the stuff about he would be better than Obama. What a load of crap.
Ummm...so is Gingrich. All politicians are liars.Yes, as are all lovers and all warriors, but there are liars and then there are liars of an extraordinary magnitude who through their duplicities push the concept of the lie to whole new levels of deceit, and
If I was paying someone to sell a crap sandwich to the American people..I'd hire a Harvard grad.Had enough yet America?
I did. It is funny how we turn on leaders that are successful.
“A Harvard Law or Business grad, by definition, is required to be the best liar on the planet.”
‘Must be able to present all sides of an issue’, is how that ‘skill set’ is usually presented, but yeah, say whatever.
I did not shed any tears, but I was mad as hell. Ditto Tom DeLay.
It's interesting that Romney didn't either, but had others do it for him.
Now we get to see who can throw the last punch. Gingrich didn't start the fight, let's see if he can finish it.
Should be good prep for the main event with obama.
Gingrich’s descent from leading candidate to a gutter backbencher continues. With this type of junk, he is not giving any option to us Perry supporters if the event Perry loses steam after Iowa. This dirt bag spent the last one week of campaigning just whining to no end and calling names. Does he have anything positive to say anymore about why someone should take a look at him if the field whittles down?
Excellent answers from Newt. Thanks for posting. Newt nails it!
Well Newt sure didn’t pull any punch’s!!!!
No more Mr. Nice!!
Newt is not my first choice but he is my second choice. I really resent his being run out of the race (somewhat) by Romney’s money and Romney’s lies. (Romney —I can’t control my PAC guy)
But I am disappointed in Newt’s ability to fight back successfully.
That was what we were all banking on with Newt ... that he could outtalk and out manuever Obama.
So, now it’s making him look weak that he can’t out talk Romney.
He’s just now started fighting back but not lookin’ that good doing it. Calling Mitt Romney a liar is not gonna do it. We all know that anyway.
Get your game on, Newt.
My wife and I had a couple over for a New Years Eve dinner weve been friends with for years. The couple are both southerners, strong fiscal/social conservatives, and steadfastedly evangelical.
Both of them point blank said they would never vote for Newt Gingrich even though they detest Obama. She considers it a matter of principle. It is because of his three marriages (cheating on his wife). I tried making the lesser of the two evils argument and it was not pursuasive.
They are both hoping that Santorum does well and are interested in hearing more about him.
