It's On: Gingrich Attacks Romney; Sununu Dares Him To Say It To Romney's Face

That's a dumb dare. Because on the off-chance (very off chance) that Gingrich wasn't going to say it to Romney's face tomorrow night, now he must, right?

Gingrich said hes running for president, not for personal gain, but because he wants to help the country: And I think I can help the United States of America by being an honest citizen and telling the truth. And I believe actually, in the end, we will win doing that. I think we'll do better in New Hampshire than people expect, because when you start to describe a Massachusetts moderate (a reference to Mitt Romney) and you remind people of his record, and suddenly they go, Oh, yeah hes not a conservative. It's a joke for him to call himself a conservative. It's a Saturday Night Live skit.

Romney's surrogate John Sununu responds:

Gingrich's anger is not really about Romney, Sununu suggested. "It's because he got caught by his colleagues. Peter King, I think, made the most accurate point that unfortunately in Newt Gingrich's world, if something is good for Newt Gingrich, then that becomes the truth for him. Most of what you're hearing from Gingrich has nothing to do with the reality of his record, or anyone else's record."

A few minutes before the interview, Sununu was asked on Fox News about Gingrich's charge that Romney approved taxpayer-funded abortions while governor of Massachusetts -- an accusation Romney strongly denies. Does Sununu expect that issue to come up during two debates this weekend? "I don't think Mr. Gingrich has the guts to say it to Gov. Romney's face," Sununu said. "He is wrong. It is dishonest for him to say thatMr. Gingrich has a little difficulty with the truth."

Sununu's charges come just days after Gingrich accused Romney of being a liar. "Somebody who will lie to you to get to be president will lie to you when they are president," Gingrich said.

And that non-aggression pact with Santorum? Not on.

Hes not a bad person, I want to be clear about this, but I dont know that [Santorum] has any track record of being able to organize a large-scale campaign.

Well that's true. That's why I keep pushing governors, but the party has decided to throw out everything it once knew about elections, because All The Rules Are Different Now or something.

Tomorrow night should be a hoot. I have to admit big bias here: Because my guy is an also-ran, I am predisposed to rooting for injuries.
