Newt Gingrich: It Is Okay For Mitt Romney To Lie If It Is In A Political Ad, Yeah Sure Why Not?
Does rubber-lipped diamond-humper Newt Gingrich think it is awesome for Mitt Romney to flat-out lie in his advertisement about Obama (not) dropping the welfare-to-work requirements in waivers to the states? Sure it is awesome. It's a political ad, you can't expect people to tell the truth when they only have 30 seconds! Did Newt Gingrich feel the same way about whether truth should be optional when it was he who was on the receiving end of Mitt Romney's fun money? We will give you a guess. Think hard! Think long! Are you ready to learn if you were right? No, not yet? We will wait.
Gingrich has vowed to stay "positive" in his quest for the GOP nomination, but has been increasingly on the attack against Romney as his poll numbers have declined, mainly in response to the barrage of negative ads purchased by groups supporting Romney, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas and other of his rivals. A super PAC calling itself Restore Our Future and run by former Romney aides has spent nearly $3 million on ads in Iowa. [...]
At a campaign stop in Marshalltown, Iowa, Gingrich acknowledged that the negative ad blizzard hurt his campaign and "drove me from the 30s to the teens" in the polls. He said of Romney, "Somebody who will lie to you to be president will lie to you as president."
So ... yeah, sounds like he's totally fine with it! You weren't expecting that one, were you? You are the worst political prognosticator ever. You should go work for Dick Morris.
