In case his gushing admiration isn't enough to tip you off, Rudy Giuliani friggin' loves Newt Gingrich all of a sudden—and he's willing to go on every cable news show to sing his praises if he has to. Not that Gingrich is asking for it, mind you; as the Washington Post put it, "Gingrich needs Rudy Giuliani like he needs another marriage." But even so, Giuliani's gonna do whatever he can to help his buddy out—and that includes ripping on Mitt Romney: “I ran against him in ‘07 and ‘08 [and] I’ve never seen a guy change his position so many times, so fast, on a dime,” Giuliani said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

It's hard to believe, we know, but Giuliani suggested that Romney was a flip-flopper, a narrative that has haunted Romney (albeit, deservedly so) for years now. Giuliani thinks President Obama can take advantage of this weakness: “I think that is a great vulnerability...What Barack Obama will do with that [is say] ‘This is a man without a core, a man without substance, a man that will say anything to become President of the United States.’”

But what about Gingrich's own weakness and vulnerabilities, hmm? Giuliani isn't as worried, because Gingrich has been touched by the spirit: he's Reaganing! “I think Newt has his set of vulnerabilities, but a more consistent position with real ideas like Ronald Reagan had,” Giuliani said. “I remember the Carter White House just dying [to run against] Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was the dumb actor, said incendiary things.”

Giuliani continued the comparison between Gingrich and Reagan while discussing his joy over Newt referring to the Palestinians as an "invented people" at the last debate: "I jumped up out of my chair and cheered for Newt when he said what he said about Palestine. Finally. Thank God. Someone is saying the right things about Palestine. Somebody has to question why are we creating a Palestinian state that’s going to be another terrorist state...And somebody’s got to have the guts to stand and say that like Ronald Reagan said, “the Evil Empire.” Like Ronald Reagan said, “Tear down the wall.” We need somebody like that."
