Whose side is he on?
Newt Gingrich went on “Meet the Press” today and attacked Rep. Paul Ryan’s (and by extension, nearly every House Republican’s) plan to reform Medicare, calling it “radical.”
The National Review reported, via Free Republic:
“I don’t think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering… I don’t think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate.”
It was just what democrats wanted to hear.

Newt Gingrich also reiterated his previous support for an individual mandate in health care. So… Just who was he trying to impress today?
