The last four Speakers of the House are all in attendance for this un-birthday party with the exception of Dennis Hastert, who retired from the House in late 2007. Hastert preceded Gingrich, and was succeeded by Pelosi.
"It's very, very, very rude indeed." Nancy Pelosi is not a fan of Gingrich, nor will she acknowledge the idea of him ever becoming commander in chief. "There is something I know," states Pelosi. As one who sat in on an ethics investigation of Newt Gingrich, it appears there is more crookedness to his ways than what is available to the public. What could she possibly know? Could it be any worse than the questions Newt Gingrich has scolded folks for who have been bold enough to ask?
"See all the trouble you started." Gingrich is not intimidated by others on the GOP playground, or the media who asks the questions. Instead he tends to turn the tables on those who suggest his previous decisions or personal life should be taken into any consideration when looking at him as a presidential candidate. When prompted for an exclamation to Pelosi's claim, Newt Gingrich replied, "She lives in a San Francisco environment of very strange fantasies and very strange understandings of reality. I have no idea what’s in Nancy Pelosi’s head.”
"Jam!? I forgot all about the jam." Before Obama's state of the Union Address, Boehner prepared the public with a preview, as he addressed The Ripon Society. "He's clearly going to try to make this about everything other than his own record." As one who wears his emotions on his sleeve, Boehner is the leader of the Republican Party. The speaker of the house tends to side step questions about Gingrich, and makes a point on previous speaker Pelosi who often votes in interest of Obama. "Voting with Nancy Pelosi is never a good idea." Just like the great "Un-birthday Party" Alice happened upon, Boehner and Gingrich dance around the tea party, while keeping a lid on Pelosi.
