Newt Bounces Back

Gingrich looked punch drunk after the Tea Party roughed him up when he criticized Paul Ryan's deficit reduction package.  His poll numbers were at 6% and pundits were counting him out as recently as the past weekend.  But...Newt saw the error of his ways, and came out with a resounding Tea Party flavored plan that pulls no fiscal punches.  It includes; eliminating the estate tax, eliminating the capital gains tax, and lowering the corporate tax to 12.5% among other conservative fiscal machinations.  This plan is real, and there will be no going back.  He spoke on CNBC.

I think this plan by Newt will reinvigorate his campaign and sends a message to the Tea Party ("I'm your guy") and to the other candidates ("State your plans clearly or risk looking indecisive.").

Newt has shaken things up.

The media, and comedians, are having a lot of fun mocking Newt for buying expensive jewelry for his wife. Too bad they aren't as interested in reporting about a debt crisis that threatens the entire country.
