Politico says:

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich apologized in a telephone call to House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Tuesday afternoon for his remarks on “Meet the Press,” where the presidential candidate referred to Ryan’s Medicare proposal as “radical change.”

“Newt apologized,” said Rick Tyler, his press secretary and longtime aide. “The call went very well.”

Doesn't look very presidential, does it? Newt Blingrich is having a stellar first week as a candidate.

Meanwhile, Mitt Romney continues his plan of shutting the fuck up until it comes time for the primaries. At this rate, he'll grab the nomination without breaking a sweat.
