gingrich does something strategically smart and interesting

on a purely strategic level, it's interesting that newt gingrich is attaching the ryan plan. pretty much all the other major candidates and most GOP members of congress are on the record endorsing it. since then it has become evident that the medicare phase-out plan is enormously unpopular with the american people.

as i've said before, i don't think newt will win the GOP primary, but this is a way for him to distinguish himself from the pack. and because newt gets media attention, his stance is going to complicate the GOP's attempt to reboot its ryan plan rollout this week.
