In light of the two tweets quoted in the article, I am curious what others think is going on here.
1. Both posts are Gingrich's honest belief at the time they were posted.
2. The first is an honest opinion, the second is a political opinion.
3. The second is honest, the first is political.
4. Both are political positions
The first just seems implausible to me on the basis that no one changes opinions so drastically so fast. If it's the second, third, or fourth, then who would bother reading Twitter posts and ascribing any meaning to them? Surely the only value in reading an individual Republican's Twitter lies in the idea that they do something other thsn parrot Republican talking points?
