Gingrich Stands by Assertion that Romney Lied

From Newt Gingrich’s interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer yesterday:

BLITZER: Do you still believe Romney is a liar? 

GINGRICH: I still believe that the Romney campaign said things that weren’t true.

BLITZER: Forget about the Romney campaign. Is Mitt Romney — is Mitt Romney a liar?

GINGRICH: The governor said things at times that weren’t true.

BLITZER: So the answer is yes.

GINGRICH: I also believe that compared to Barack Obama I would trust Mitt Romney 100 times over. 

I’m guessing Gingrich won’t be a surrogate too regularly deployed by the Romney campaign, although he told CNN he plans to make an official endorsement of Romney .
