Newt having the reputation as being so intelligent, outsmarted himself! I wonder if he couldn’t handle Ryan’s plan being so well presented, that Newt may have been jealous? Thought Levin was very kind to Newt during the interview!
I do get the impression that Newt is jealous of Ryan.
Newt spent many years thinking about how to change health care. He may have thought that it would be his resurrection. Then Ryan gets all the attention because Ryan is in the game and Newt is in the audience.
I listened to the Mark Levin interview and he had a great point, “What the Hell are you talking about “We need a national conversation and shouldn’t have the Ryan plan shoved down our throats.” Newt had no good answer. It then occurred to me that the only one NOT in the conversation is Newt.
