Newt Gingrich to Mitt Romney: Cut "Pious Baloney"

by at . Comments

Mitt Romney has a sizable lead in most New Hampshire polls heading into the first primary of the Republican nomination race, but did he take on water today?

With the election set for Tuesday, Romney is expected to win, with Ron Paul in second in every survey to date. Thus, the rest of the field is playing catch-up.

Newt Gingrich, in particular, took Mitt to task today twice over:

  1. Romney's insistence that he is not a career politician
  2. His connection to Super PACs running attack ads

After Rick Santorum asked Romney why he didn't run for reelection in 2006 if he was such a successful governor, Newt told him to cut the "pious baloney."

Later, Gingrich chastised the deluge of negative ads run by pro-Romney PACs, and specifically Mitt's failure to disavow them in a public setting. Watch:

@Reed, I guess you are either calling those cops liars, believe RINO Romney, or don't care if a volunteer was "targeted by Romney", or if cops were "berated" by Romney. Did these things happen? Do you believe the cops or RINO Romney? Perhaps this is stuff that you like to make lite of?
