“My fear is that the type of people going into congress today dont have the same mentality that Gingrich (did)”
As I said in another post...
Newt Gingrich is the reason we are in this mess. Thanks to Newt and the Contract Republicans, we had it all sewn up and we had Americans BELIEVING. Unfortunately, Newt couldn’t keep it in his pants long enough to become one of the greatest Statesmen in history. What we thought would destroy Clinton ultimately destroyed Newt.
True that Gingrich’s personal problems screwed him over but politically he did what he said he was going to do. Unfortunately, DC corrupts.
I seem to remember Newt and the Republican’s demise happening when The Bent one (with much media assistance) accused them of starving federal employees when they shut down the government.
Did I miss something? I thought Newt’s indiscretions were before this time?
