Mitt Romney's latest line of attack against Newt Gingrich is to go after Gingrich for sitting on a couch next to Nancy Pelosi and saying "we do agree, our country must take action to address climate change":

For the record, Newt Gingrich has already flip-flopped on the video, which was recorded in 2008, calling it "the single dumbest thing I've done in years."

Mitt Romney, however, was taking the exact same position as Gingrich as recently as June of this year, saying "it's important for us to reduce our emission of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may well be significant contributors to the climate change and the global warming that you're seeing." Of course, like Gingrich, Romney has also flip-flopped, saying "the idea of spending trillions and trillions of dollars to try and reduce CO2 emissions is not the right course for us:"

I'll give Mitt Romney credit for this: by bringing so much attention to issues on which both he and Gingrich have flip-flopped, he's doing an outstanding job of making the case for why neither of them should be elected president.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
