Just to think, ten years ago he was leading a Republican Revolution in Congress and was almost as powerful as Bill Clinton (who had the wisdom to snub him, making him leave by the tourist door on Air Force One).
Gingrich inflicted a severe blow to his public image by suggesting that the Republican hard-line stance over the budget was in part due to his feeling "snubbed" by the President the day before, after being forced to leave Air Force One via the back door during his return from Yitzhak Rabin's funeral in Israel.Now, this idiot is demanding that Bush declare that we are in World War III:
Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich says America is in World War III and President Bush should say so (link from Raw Story).Meantime, children are dying in the MidEast. If you are reading this far, and you continue to read my blog, please prepare yourself for a deluge of shrillness about this tragedy.
Gingrich said in an interview Saturday that Bush should call a joint session of Congress the first week of September and talk about global military conflicts in much starker terms than have been heard from the president.
