Fox News' Brit Hume Slams Newt Gingrich's Hypocrisy: "Provocative Thinker" But "Promiscuous Talker"

Brit Hume: "Now he's [Gingrich] not only disparaged a man who is a hero to many Republicans, he has handed Democrats a potent weapon against Ryan and Republicans at the moment they stand accused by the Democrats of trying to destroy Medicare. They were requiring all be responsible for healthcare; he called the idea a variation of the mandate to buy insurance which Mitt Romney passed in Massachusetts. Today, Gingrich is trying to undo it all, claiming he is against a mandate and great admirer of Paul Ryan and so on. Republicans must wonder what he will say next and why he said what he did. This is all vintage Gingrich who is what he has always been: A provocative thinker and promiscuous talker."
