Newt Gingrich appeared on CNN this week as a surrogate for Mitt Romney’s campaign, and accidentally told the truth. Pressed on Romney’s lie about welfare policy, Gingrich conceded there’s “no proof” to support Romney’s claim, and he wishes the attack ad had been worded in a more accurate way.
That was Wednesday. Yesterday, Gingrich returned to the airwaves, talking to msnbc’s Chris Matthews about the race and Romney’s search for a running mate. Pay particular attention to the exchange that begins at the 5:52 mark.
