Speaking on Fox and Friends on Tuesday morning, GOP candidate Newt Gingrich said his only opponent in the 2012 presidential race is President Obama.
The former House Speaker was kind to the other Republican candidates, including Herman Cain who has recently come under fire over past allegations of sexual harassment. But Gingrich did call on Cain to answer “fully, fairly and totally” to Sharon Bialek, who recently came forward with her story.
“I like Herman Cain, but I think he does have to answer the allegations,” Gingrich said.
During the interview, Gingrich took issue with the super committee’s proposals to raise taxes to lower the national deficit. He proposed raising revenue through off-shore drilling and opening Alaska to more development.
“As someone who balanced the budget for four consecutive years, I think it’s a very bad idea,” Gingrich said of the creation of the super committee and granting it the power to make decisions on tax rates.
