DeLay: Gingrich ‘Sort of Like Clinton’

On The Michael Berry Show, former House majority leader Tom DeLay criticized Newt Gingrich’s tenure as speaker.

“He’s not really a conservative,” DeLay said. “He’ll tell you what you want to hear. He has an uncanny ability, sort of like Clinton, to feel your pain and know his audience and speak to his audience and fire them up. But when he was speaker, he was erratic, undisciplined.”

When asked how Gingrich was erratic, DeLay replied, “We’d have leadership meetings almost every day. And every day, Newt had a new agenda.” Listen to the full interview below.
