Charles Krauthammer, normally friendly to Romney, has said Mitt's accusation that Newt left in disgrace was no true.

Gingrich fans should be fighting revisionist history by leftists, not trying to create their own revisionist history...

Brokaw was speaking "revisionist history" when he characterized Newt reimbursing the government for the cost of the investigate as a "very large financial penality."

Dude, that broadcast is from January 1997. That was reporting the news, documenting history, not pushing revisionist history. And Brokaw is a Dakota Republican who was incredibly fair/balanced, so you can't chalk that up to liberal bias.

Everybody who followed politics in the late 1990s knows what kind of embarrassment Gingrich was, especially after Monica-gate backfired.

...and anybody who followed politics in Massachusetts in 2006 knew that Mitt Romney left the governorship incredibly unpopular after a liberal, failed administration. Instead of building up a network in MA to possibly retain his governorship. he decided to run for president as a Reagan Conservative instead, and it was best not to remind voters of his record as governor.

I noticed you didn't quote the rest of Bob's post where he talked about Gingrich being cleared of all but one ethics charge (which was misrepresenting legal paperwork), and that Brokaw certainly exaggerated the term "Large financial penalty."

I suppose that like your candidate, it's best just to leave certain things unknown.
