Newt Gingrich, Thursday on Rush Limbaugh's radio show:
Follow the flip-flopping Newt
GINGRICH: By the way, it was not a reference to Paul Ryan. There was no reference to Paul Ryan in that answer.
LIMBAUGH: Well then what did you apologize to him about?
GINGRICH: Because it was interpreted in a way which was causing trouble, which he doesn’t need or deserve.
Newt Gingrich, Sunday on Meet the Press:
MR. GREGORY: But not what Paul Ryan is suggesting, which is completely changing Medicare.
REP. GINGRICH: I, I think that, I think, I think that that is too big a jump. I think what you want to have is a system where people voluntarily migrate to better outcomes, better solutions, better options, not one where you suddenly impose upon the--I don't want to--I'm against Obamacare, which is imposing radical change, and I would be against a conservative imposing radical change.
Even though what Gingrich told Limbaugh is obviously contradicted by the transcript of Sunday's Meet the Press, he's obviously telling the truth—as he has already made clear, quoting his own words is the same thing as spreading a "falsehood" and his comments to Limbaugh referenced something he never actually said, therefore automagically making his claim true.
