NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- In the twilight hours of the Iowa caucuses, Newt Gingrich called national GOP front-runner Mitt Romney a liar. Gingrich's frank statement came when an interviewer on CBS noted that the former House speaker dropped from the lead in Iowa polls after opponents, including a super PAC that supported Romney, spent millions of dollars to attack Gingrich's record.

"This is a man Romney whose staff created the PAC, his millionaire friends fund the PAC, he pretends he has nothing to do with the PAC -- it's baloney," Gingrich said, referring to the Romney-supporting super PAC. "He's not telling the American people the truth." Gingrich went on to call Romney a "Massachusetts moderate" and said that his health care plan in the state used taxpayer money for abortion and planned parenthood.
