In his first major campaign interview (Meet the Depressed0 Newt actually made John McCain look like a brilliantly aggressive political tactician against the democrats and Obama. and here I thought that was nearly impossible to accomplish.
Levin was as polite as he could be, but he really tore Gingrich apart. He kept asking Gingrich, “What do you propose”instead of Ryan’s plan (which is really very simple).
Newt of course had no plan, except the double speak that he wanted something “more comprehensive”. Newt’s only reply that we need to have a lot of “hearings” and “meetings” (presumably so Ryan’s plan could be cut to pieces. This is the M.O. for politician like Newt). Newt was toast before this major gaffe. He is now burnt toast. Won’t achieve liftoff. Out within a few weeks.
