Newt Borrowing a Page from Obama Playbook

newt.jpgOne of the biggest problems facing Newt Gingrich as he tries to capitalize on his latest rise in the  polls is convincing party conservatives that he's not an apostate from Republican red-blooded conservative values. His complicated personal life, his record on immigration, climate change and health care and the fees he's collected from such tea party anathemas as Freddie Mac have raised some doubts.

To allay them, the Gingrich campaign has just unveiled a new website, Answering the Attacks. It offers Newtonian ripostes for criticisms that have been lodged against the former House speaker on everything from his political endorsements to his personal life.

Pretty good idea but guess who did it first?
