Newtie’s back — the GOP has tapped him to lead the charge against President Obama on welfare reform. So it will be Newt v. Clinton. I think we’ve seen this movie before, and it ended with Newtie resigning his Speakership and leaving Congress.
The thing about Newtie is that once you’ve let the Newt out of his terrarium, it can be hard to catch him and put him back in. He’s a quick and crafty little lizard. He’ll say what the GOP wants him to say, but he’ll embellish those talking points with his own brand of outlandishness. Remember, Newtie’s been out there defending Michele Bachmann for going after poor Huma Abedin as a Muslim Brotherhood mole in our State Department.
