Newt Gingrich's 'love seat' predicament - Darren Samuelsohn - POLITICO.com
Newt Gingrich's co-starring role in a climate change ad — where he sat on a love seat in front of the Capitol next to Nancy Pelosi — just won't go away.
"I don't know what we'd apologize for," Gingrich spokesman Rick Tyler told POLITICO Friday.
"There are some people who are willing to engage and debate their ideological opponents and there are some who are willing to cede ground," Tyler said. "We're not willing to cede ground."
Hogwash, says prominent global warming skeptic Marc Morano.
"My only question is how stupid does he think American voters are that he'd come out and claim that?" said Morano, editor of the blog Climate Depot and a former spokesman to global warming foe Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.).
As for Gingrich, Tyler said he's a fan of Morano's blog and reads it often. But he thinks that Morano's attacks on Gingrich are misdirected.
