Tough love from Newt Gingrich to congressional Republicans.

In a column for Human Events today, he writes:

If Republicans would spend more time thinking about historic lessons and less time complaining about President Obama, they could begin to understand just how hard wielding power is. …

In the end, under our Constitution the Congress has more power than the president.

That power, however, only exists when we have Congressmen and Congresswomen courageous enough to exercise it and smart enough to pick the right fights and then win the communications fight.

Until House Republicans assert their Constitutional powers they should expect the President to continue to treat them with contempt and disdain.
