Gingrich Blasts Romney: ‘He’s Not Telling the American People the Truth’



Text  



Des Moines, Iowa – Hours before the caucuses, the former speaker “appeared to channel his inner Bob Dole from 1988 by calling Romney a liar,” NBC’s First Read reports. “In an interview on CBS this morning, Gingrich was asked if he was calling Romney a liar, and he answered in the affirmative. ‘This is a man whose staff created the PAC (Restore Our Future), his friends fund the PAC, he pretends he has nothing to do with the PAC. It’s baloney. He’s not telling the American people the truth.’”

UPDATE: Via The Page, a full transcript of Gingrich’s remarks:

O’DONNELL: “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?”

GINGRICH: “Yes.”

O’DONNELL: “You’re calling Mitt Romney a liar?”

GINGRICH: “Well, you seem shocked by it! Yes. I mean, why – “

O’DONNELL: “Why are you saying he is a liar?”

GINGRICH: “Because this is a man whose staff created the PAC, his millionaire friends fund the PAC, he pretends he has nothing to do with the PAC – it’s baloney. He’s not telling the American people the truth.”
