Newt wants Repubs to shut down government again
Yeah, THIS TRICK worked out so well for the GOP when Gingrich tried it 15 years ago that he figures it’s worth another go.
Incidentally, here’s what wingnut Tom DeLay later said about Newt’s ill-fated stunt in 1995:
He told a room full of reporters that he forced the shutdown because [then-President Bill] Clinton had rudely made him and Bob Dole sit at the back of Air Force One [during a flight to and from Yitzhak Rabin’s funeral in Israel]….Newt had been careless to say such a thing, and now the whole moral tone of the shutdown had been lost. What had been a noble battle for fiscal sanity began to look like the tirade of a spoiled child..The revolution, I can tell you, was never the same.
Doesn’t Gingrich understand that any GOP effort to shut down the government again will only prompt media reminders of that pathetic episode to which DeLay referred?
Or is Newt actually a Democratic mole trying to sabotage the Republican Party?
