I actually don't remember. What I remember is that Newt lost his bid for re-election the very next time and he hasn't been able to buy a Political position since he did that. BIG MISTAKE on his part...if he wanted to stay in Politics and obviously, he did!<quoted text>
After Gingrich and Clinton went toe to toe and shut the government down...did the economy improve or decline???
Republicans just never seem to learn from their mistakes.
