Gingrich to appear with Romney at Georgia fund-raiser

(CNN) – Former rivals Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich will appear together at a fund-raiser in Georgia Monday, a campaign aide to the former House speaker confirmed.

R.C. Hammond said the event, slated to take place in Marietta, will also include a number of Georgia officials who supported Gingrich during the GOP primary.

Gingrich and Romney last appeared together at a fund-raiser in Las Vegas, an event which also included celebrity businessman Donald Trump. The former House speaker dropped his bid for the White House at the end of April.

CNN's Natalie Apsell contributed to this report.

    How can politicians be so dishonest. Newt talked all sort of bad things about Romney and now he is a friend of him. How can people trust them?
    It is amazing disgusting.

    One of the biggest reasons not to vote for Romney. The hypocrisy will get thick enough to cut with a knife.

    This happens all the time in politics. Remember in 2008 when Obama surrogates said some awful anti-women things about Clinton, and now they are political buddies again. There is no limit to the theater that is politics in the Deomcrat-Republican clubhouse. They all posture.

    Newt has to get that debt retired somehow . . . I doubt his speaking fees will be worth much after the clown show he put on.

    Silence – You are just making things up, and you know it. You sound like Hanoi Hannity on Fox foreign owned media.

    Since Gingrich will participate in a fund raiser with Mitt, I guess when he writes his book it will be all about he and guess who, Callista and not about how much he hates Romney.

    Bain and companies like Bain "leverage the game, borrow the money, leave the debt behind and walk off with all the profits. Now, I'll let you decide if that's really good capitalism. I think it's exploitive. I think it's not defensible." Newt Gingrich, January 18, 2012
    So. What was indefensible is now endorsed. I'm glad that right wing gives us numbers of highly principled men and women who hold the American people and their welfare above all other matters. yea.

    So. Was was indefensible is now endorsed. It's indeed fortunate that the right wing keeps us supplied with highly principled candidates who always hold the welfare of the American people above all other considerbtions. yea.
