Fact-checking the debate
Politifact is a useful resource at times like this. Remember that back and forth on the nitty-gritties of Newt Gingrich concerning his ethics violations, the details of his work with Freddie Mac, and all his other disputed claims? Gingrich didn't get a single "True" or even "Half-True" rating on his defending statements - including on his budget balancing record! Romney, on the other hand, did not get any "False" or worse. You can follow this link for the debate fact-checking details. In conclusion, Romney was not over the top in his attacks on Gingrich last night - I retract what I said in the debate post. And Gingrich is a slimy scumbag of a politician. The end.
