Gingrich: "Romney is a liberal"

Lizardboy has declared that Mittens is a "pro-abortion, pro-gun control, pro-tax increase liberal."

This from the guy who asked his wife for an "open marriage."

Sweet baby Jebus.


  1. What's your point?
    Even if Gingrich did something bad in his past are you going to maintain that he can't critique someone who's doing something wrong (by his standards) in the present?
    What sense does that make?

    By your reasoning I could say "Hey, Mr. 618.... remember back into the murky reaches of the past when you did 'such and such bad thing'?? Who are YOU to criticize anyone else?"

    I don't like pointing out philosophy fallacies, but, it's just so apparent here: you're making the Tu Quoque fallacy.

  2. No, I'm not saying he can't criticize someone, I'm simply pointing out the fallacy of his calling Romney a liberal, since "open marriage" has traditionally been a liberal type of thing, brought about by the free-love DFH crowd; it's usually anathema to the far-right-wing defense of marriage types.

    If I refused to deal with African-Americans and then bitched about racism, you might have a point. But not in this case. Newt is a hypocrite (which really isn't any breakinjg news story, going back to the days of criticizing Clinton for having an affair while Newt was having one himself).
