Sunday on Fox News, Newt Gingrich became an honesty agent, criticizing flip-flopper Mitt Romney, calling him a liar and asking for honesty. Gingrich actually said this about Romney;
“You cannot be president of the United States if you cannot be honest and candid with the American people. That is a very serious problem.”
“He came into the debate prepared to say things that are false. I think someone who is running for the president has a unique requirement to be honest because the only way you lead the American people is by having them believe in you.”
But if honesty is a qualifier for being President of the United States, and it should, does this mean that by his own standards, Gingrich just disqualified himself?
