Romney Blasts Gingrich as Unreliable

Mitt Romney told the Washington Post that Newt Gingrich was an "extremely unreliable leader in the conservative world" who has taken positions in this campaign that should give GOP voters pause as they consider their choices for the party's nomination.

Said Romney: "He has been an extraordinarily unreliable leader in the conservative world -- not 16 or 17 years ago but in the last two to three years. And even during the campaign, the number of times he has moved from one spot to another has been remarkable. I think he's shown a level of unreliability as a conservative leader today."

But Romney also admitted that he hasn't always been in step with conservatives and that he was "wrong" not to sign Gingrich's Contract with America when he was running for U.S. Senate in 1994.
