  •  I'm not sure about that as well. (0+ / 0-)

    I've forgotten a whole bunch of stuff that is now coming up about when he was speaker, and the entire Newt Inc. is just now coming to light.

    My wife says I couldn't have done it. And leave my wife out of this.

    •  The thing about Newt Inc (0+ / 0-)

      ...was that it began while he was Speaker. The same one who originally accepted a $4.5 million book advance from Harper Collins before backing away due to the deluge of criticism.

      And that is just one example among legion.

      •  Good example of what I had forgotten. (2+ / 0-)

        Newt's skill was primarily in fundraising and insider power within the House.  His "big thinker" persona is just to sell books.  As Bob Dole said, "Newt's all for new ideas.  He doesn't have any.  He's just for them".

        My wife says I couldn't have done it. And leave my wife out of this.
