Newt Can't Resist Slamming Romney

So much for backing off Mitt. Just one day after admitting he'd gone too far with his attacks on Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital, Newt Gingrich laughed when questioned about Romney's latest ad boasting of his creation of "thousands of jobs"—a departure from the 100,000 jobs Romney told Time magazine he'd created back in December. The former speaker told voters at a Miami café, "He's still not prepared to release any documents from Bain to prove anything." Gingrich referenced a Washington Post fact-checking blog that gave Romney's "100,000 jobs" claim "three Pinocchios." That same blog gave "King of Bain," the short documentary produced by the pro-Gingrich super PAC Winning Our Future, four Pinocchios, comparing Gingrich to Michael Moore and calling the film "such an over-the-top assault on former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney that it is hard to know where to begin."
