Does got a big problem is big summer rush of my during the months.
President Obama wants congress ought to on everything from Health Care Reform a new financial regulatory reform to -- a stimulus package and maybe maybe a brand is a record justice do.
Big plans big problem two words Nancy Pelosi her own party torn over whether to investigator mixed messages.
On what she knew of interrogation and when she knew it.
Things are heating up and are likely cooling legislative momentum -- Let's ask the former speaker of the house altar of the new book five principles for successful like Newt Gingrich.
Who joins me on the phone -- good have you congratulations.
His new book.
Well thank you and it's great to do it -- what do you know I kind of Nancy's rounds.
Well I think that -- you know she's been extraordinarily powerful to now.
Working with the president -- -- -- -- 787.
Billion dollar package that nobody even rent.
She ramps -- 400 billion dollar appropriations bill to 8000 earmarks -- got to the president to sign it.
It -- stayed up until now.
She's she's been very central to what he's been doing and she's kept the Democrats.
Very strongly come -- tied the other now.
It is beginning to look.
Like she -- explicitly lied about how -- -- -- the country on a matter of national security.
If that is true that that's what turns out to be the case.
I think that she has a huge problem not a small problem.
And the question will be whether or not to the Democrats are so lockstep to and so much.
But like a disciplined heard of musk -- that even in a situation.
Where they in the country have been lied to about national security they -- -- wouldn't you know it close ranks and decidedly loyal to a but I think she clearly is starting to move towards being a liability not an asset that I can turn it -- as far as.
What when that starts to happen when people stretching -- naturally come to my district.
Now I'm not sure I'm not sure wanted to thank you.
Well you know you only -- right they got.
-- but let me ask you this I mean Steny -- -- number two -- -- Already indicated he'd be open.
To investigate this a little more I had congress invest -- of New Jersey on yesterday.
Expressed great support and and and -- For Nancy Pelosi but was -- to have the same thing Steny Hoyer was so I guess my point is are we already seen.
I don't actually know -- best -- it -- -- you.
I really like your whole lot and I really feel bad about having to investigate too but after all.
-- all I do then you you'd begin to see an erosion of her.
Ability to dominate the house the which -- -- -- -- real competitors.
That's right they're not necessarily friends even though they were in terms together in -- alum that's in their childhood.
But the fact is also you have -- coach -- who was -- Republican chairman of the intelligence committee.
You have Porter Glaus who was the chairman -- -- really became head of the CIA their books they have pretty bluntly she lied to.
And -- now call the CIA to release the details of these briefings.
And my sense is that these things are all going to be.
Further condemnation of purposely clearer and clearer that this he's just playing line.
-- I think that is a big problem I don't think that's a small problem and it could lead to a resolution of censure.
Yeah it -- with a resolution of censorship could not serve as speaker under the rules look out.
Could I ask you this -- you know how this works on the hill.
Could it be deemed by both parties and Mexican standoff in other words there -- is moved by.
Some more aggressive members in congress to go after the prior administration on everything from interrogations of what they knew about Iraq and when they know it.
And now they know there's speakers in trouble.
So now both sides might -- today.
Let's mutually cease and desist -- -- -- that.
I'll have that might start happening -- that this will certainly in the current or future.
Well bluntly eagerness of Democrats to have this fight because it's it's gonna get -- -- frankly.
The minute Republicans start saying let's also look at the eight years us police the data from the eight years of the Clinton administration.
And see how often they failed to stop terrorists and how often they failed to help the FBI and CIA.
I think that you're gonna see a further weakening of their excitement about.
Going back and digging this step up could -- a very bad record of failing to protect America.
Aren't finally learn about this Obama agenda that Nancy Pelosi -- today as our agenda get analyst on as I.
The outline of the beginning of this new two by the end of July.
Is that us all now as a result of this -- this -- and are well it -- -- it is it is slowed that much hasn't failed yet but what they've whatever it.
realizes these folks wanna rush this through because global more of the country learns about all the stuff.
The more trouble it's going to be in will people start looking at giant tax increases and energy giant tax increases on -- In the middle of a severe recession this stuff is gonna become rich -- -- on popular and they know on the left if they don't get this through quickly it's just gonna die.
Their interest and so that's -- parents aren't Newt Gingrich thank you very much.
