Rep Phil Gingrey (R-GA) admitted to CNN’s Soledad O’Brien on Friday that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is in fact changing his position on numerous issues just to pick up skeptics in the political center, adding that lying to voters is so “typical” for Republicans and Democrats that he sees it as “good campaign tactics.”
That point didn’t go unnoticed by President Barack Obama either, who said Thursday that he’d never seen the revision of candidate Romney who took the stage on Wednesday night espousing a whole new set of political beliefs. “It couldn’t have been Mitt Romney because the real Mitt Romney has been running around the country for the last year, promising $5 trillion in tax cuts for the wealthy,” the president told voters in Denver.
O’Brien challenged Gingrey, a Romney campaign surrogate, on that very point, asking him to explain why Romney said during the debate that he favors numerous positions and policies completely opposite of what he’s campaigned on thus far.
