The Kannon team loves nothing more than being three coffees to the wind on a Sunday morning, with the bonus of noticing that the New York Times is finally bringing to light yet another dynamic that this site pointed out long before the traditional press or public sentiment caught on to it.
From today’s post-Valentine edition comes this piece: In Gingrich Mold, a New Voice for G.O.P. Resistance
From the article:
The fact that House Republicans have stood firm against Mr. Obama suggests just how unified the caucus is, though Mr. Gingrich, in an interview, said Democratic leaders like Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Representative David R. Obey of Wisconsin, the chairman of the Appropriations Committee, did more to unify Republicans than anything Republicans did.
“I’d like to tell you Cantor did a brilliant job, but the truth is that Pelosi and Obey pushed the members into his arms,” Mr. Gingrich said. But, he added, “They have been good at developing alternatives so they don’t leave their guys out there chanting no.”
