Gingrich Warns Boehner

by Stuart Shapiro

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has some advice for his successor:

Gingrich said Boehner needed to carefully craft a legislative agenda in advance of coming high-profile negotiations on the sequester and debt ceiling.

“They could build a strategy in the House; they could think through the next two years,” Gingrich said. “They have total control — that’s the way the House operates.”

Well, in fairness to Newt, he is the only one in the world who can provide advice based on  first hand experience on how to avoid being overthrown as Speaker of the House by your crazy Republican caucus.
