Pot. Kettle. Black.by Stephen Gordon
From UPI (emphasis added):
Newt Gingrich has angered some members of the U.S. Republican National Committee by telling them on national TV that they have big egos.
The former speaker of the House and architect of the Contract With America was responding to a question about a resolution to limit Republican Chairman Michael Steele‘s ability to spend committee funds. Steele, Gingrich said in an interview recorded on C-Span, “probably has not yet learned the art of massaging the egos of RNC members.”
“Newt needs to take a breath,” David Norcross, an RNC member from New Jersey and backer of the resolution, told CNN.
Neither Gingrich nor the RNC get it, despite successive GOP losses. I’ll suggest a simple strategy that seems far too complicated for them: Get back to the basics of limited government.
