Yesterday on Meet the Press, former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich was faced with questions by adviser Gibbs about Romney’s recent statement that he would implement across-the-board 20% tax cuts, even to the 1%, despite contending previously he wouldn’t lower taxes for the wealthy at all. Gingrich merely called it “good politics,” conceding that “it’s clear he’s changed.”
But don’t forget what Newt said about Romney back in January when they were campaigning against each other:
I think it’s the most blatantly dishonest performance by a presidential candidate I’ve ever seen. I wanted to fact check. I wanted to make sure he was as totally dishonest as I thought he was.
