Newt Gingrich is expected to throw his endorsement behind GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney at some point but after dropping out of the race on Wednesday Gingrich continues to attack his former opponent at every turn.
Gingrich sat down for an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN’s Situation Room in which he basically called Mitt Romney a liar.
Gingrich told Blitzer:
“I still believe that the Romney campaign said things that weren’t true.”
When Wolf Blitzer outright asked Newt Gingrich “Forget about the Mitt Romney campaign. Is Mitt Romney a liar?”
“The governor said things at times that weren’t true.”
Blitzer then attempted to push the question one more time at which point Gingrich shrugged and said one word “liar.”
This isn’t exactly ground breaking Newt Gingrich speak, he started calling Mitt Romney a liar way back in January, in fact he said it in even more specific terms with Norah O’Donnell, when Norah stated “You’re calling Mitt Romney a liar?” Gingrich responded:
“Well, you seemed shocked by it. Yes.”
While Gingrich admitted he thinks Mitt Romney is a liar he did a little damage control, noting that he would “trust him [Mitt Romney] a thousand times over” compared to President Obama. Newt also said he will campaign for Romney throughout the election.
In a final dig at the countries potential future leader he added:
“This is a comparative business. And our choice isn’t Mitt Romney or Ronald Reagan.”
Are you surprised by Gingrich’s refusal to fully get behind his political parties presumptive nominee for the Presidency of the United States?
