Gingrich in clean-up mode
Newt Gingrich has been calling Republicans all over the country apologizing for his amazing statement on Meet The Press last weekend that the Ryan Medicare plan is “right-wing social engineering” as bad as Obama’s left-wing social engineering.
An earlier VFR entry today about Gingrich’s attack on Ryan was entitled, “Gingrich: crazy, calculating, or unconscious?”
I guess we can remove the “calculating.”
Here is where a calculating man does not end up. As reported by Toby Harnden in the Telegraph,
On the second day of a 17-city tour of Iowa, where the first votes in the 2012 presidential contest will be cast next February, Mr Gingrich was confronted by a man who shook his hand and said: “Speaker Gingrich, what you just did to Paul Ryan is unforgivable.”
