RYAN VS. GINGRICH: Rep. Paul Ryan has the entire GOP — who’s Gingrich got? “The irony is great here. The current House leadership, built on a not-Gingrich philosophy (e.g. focused, self-effacing), is telling the former speaker to put a cork in it. Gingrich is approaching the status of former Supreme Court Justice David Souter, the Republican appointee whose only rooting section was on the left. Gingrich likes to posit himself as an anti-establishment figure, but where is the grass-roots support for his attack on the House Medicare reform? There is none. . . . Frankly, the division is on the Democratic side. Is the Democratic House prepared to follow Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) declaration that Medicare cuts are on the table? Now, there’s an interesting intra-party fight.”
