After nearly 10 million dollars of negative ads being aired against Newt, and after seeing it cut his numbers in half, Newt is now willing to accept the fact the negative campaign against has worked. Yet in an attempt to maintain his own pledge to run a positive campaign, Gingrich told CNN’s Piers Morgan that he need not attack his opponents, all he needs to do is tell the truth. And that is what he now calls his attacks on Mitt Romney ….the truth.

In an afternoon interview on Fox News, when Speaker Gingrich was asked to explain how he is can claim to to still be running a positive campaign after earlier this morning calling Romney a liar, Gingrich stated that he was asked a question and answered it honestly. But he added that what he is not going to do is waste people’s time by trying to turn such a thing in to a negative television ad campaign. He added that he is happy to remain positive and will continue to do so as the race moves beyond Iowa.

Newt states and that if we can’t trust him to level with the American people about his ads, then how can we expect him to level with the American people about anything as president.
