Newt Gingrich on a candidate's responsibility to allow him- or herself to be vetted by the press…
"I think that’s part of his responsibility as a candidate, and I think that's part of what a campaign is about, is to raise question and see whether or not whether or not your competitor can answer them effectively before you get to a general election where you know those questions are going to be asked."
I should have pointed out that that's him during the January 16th debate, discussing his campaign's policy of raising uncomfortable questions concerning Mitt Romney's legal though morally-questionable business practices NOT him during the January 19th debate, discussing John King's decision to ask an uncomfortable question concerning Newt Gingrich's legal though morally-questionable personal relationship practices.
He had a different response to that one.
