What we are witnessing in Washington D.C. right now is political theater at the very highest level. The stakes are (potentially) astronomical. Who's going to flinch? :)
I always kinda liked Newt. He frequently said what he thought, and he generally seemed smarter than most of his peers... A logical, common sense, down to earth kind of guy. ;)
Newt is warning the Democrat members of the Congress that people are beginning to realize that the "Jan 6 Committee" is an illegitimate attempt to intimidate those Americans on the Right, while gaining favor with those Americans on the Left, via political gamesmanship, to gain complete control of the Republic.
Newt is warning the Party that just spent 4 years attempting to overthrow a sitting President, followed by a year of attempting to assure that he is never President again, regardless of the will of the People, that they have been found out. That they are dirty and everyone sees it. Democrats are being warned that, in the almost certain event that they lose the House and the Senate in the upcoming midterm elections, there will be a reckoning. And that reckoning will be painful. Newt is clearly saying that no one, including the current President, is off limits.
I had always hoped that Republicans were beyond the pettiness of this type of politics. I had hoped the People would eventually see that Republicans were truly working for the good of all, and that the Democrats were simply pretending to "be for the little guy" while trying to rob the people that provide jobs and create a vibrant economy. I had hoped that, through word and deed, the Republicans would stand above this and shine for everyone to see. But... I think they are all corrupt. Perhaps corrupt in different ways, but still corrupt. I need to give that some thought.
Anyway, I'm not sure any of it is real. ;) But it's fun.
