How did we miss this? The following item isn’t simply a Mitt Romney flip-flop, it’s an outright and obvious lie:
“With regards to their ads, I haven’t seen them,” Romney said, after being implored by Gingrich to “calmly and directly” take some responsibility for spots that the former Speaker of the House alleged were “untrue.”
But moments later — in the same response, in fact — Romney made it clear that he hadn’t told the entire truth.
“The ad I saw said that you’d been forced out of the speakership. That was correct,” Romney said.
He didn’t see the ads, but he did. Put another way, you can’t not see the ads, but also see one. Yeah, Mitt Romney was caught on camera lying — and basically admitted to the lie.
