Excerpt: GINGRICH: "And I think one of the great failures of Republicans candidly is that we tell the truth less effectively than Democrats lie. And we are so startled by their dishonesty that we're sort of tongue tied."
I deduce from this passage that Newt Gingrich is -- like all virtuous exemplars on the "right side of the aisle" -- a Truth Teller.
Here is Gingrich's truth-telling documentary about Mitt Romney released during the GOP nomination campaign. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLWnB9FGmWE
When Republicans tell the truth about other Republicans, they go easier on the partisan fellows than they do on "the opposition."
According to soothsayer Gingrich, Romney is a predatory capitalist who would sell his mother into sexual slavery.
Don't believe me?
See what "Honest Newt" has to say about Slick Willard. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLWnB9FGmWE
Newt Gingrich is the public figure of whom it was originally asked:
"How do you know when a politician is lying?"
"His lips are moving."
