Gingrich's Damn the Torpedoes Morning in America

Whatever happened to the old politician's trick of answering the question you wanted to be asked, instead of the one that you actually were asked? 

If you assume Newt Gingrich wants to talk about his plans for America, he managed to do that maybe twice, and briefly, in a 17-minute appearance Sunday on ABC's This Week. For the most part he aired his grievances against Mitt Romney and Romney's establishment buddies in the kind of subtle language for which he's famous. It was no Reaganesque Sunday Morning in America. It was more like damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.
