Haley Rips Gingrich Over Budget Comments

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) left no doubt in comments to CNN that Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-WI) budget plan is a conservative litmus test for potential GOP presidential candidates.

She said she was "terribly dissapointed" in Newt Gingrich for calling the Ryan plan "right wing social engineering."

Said Haley: "What he said was absolutely unfortunate. Here you've got Representative Ryan trying to bring common sense to this world of insanity, and Newt absolutely cut him off at the knees. When you have a conservative fighting for real change, the last thing we need is a presidential candidate cutting him off at the knees."
