Newt Gingrich said he would consider taking up the Speakers gavel again if called upon to by House Republicans.
The former Speaker initially denied any interest in a return to Congress, but when pressed in an interview with radio show host Sean Hannity on Thursday, admitted he would consider it if he had the votes.

Oh, Fer Pete’s Sake!
That is all.
No. He was a wreck.
I can always count on your honesty.
SOMEONE has to keep us honest around here, LOL! :)
He laughed at the notion. Told Hannity to go round up the votes and get back to him.
He wasn’t the least bit serious.
Good grief. Just because he has nothing else to do.
I say get Gingrich.
Heck he wanted to start impeaching judges. Seems to me, Newt
s what we need.
Some idiot robocalls using his name have been calling my house for over a year pimping for money. They call about three times a day. I think I’ll pass, Fig Newton.
well he was the best SOTH in the last 50 years
Yes. You would have to go back to Sam Rayburn to find one as effective.
K Street Newt became a part of the problem a long time ago.
Newt can be brilliant delivering a presentation on Constitutional matters.
None the less, the fooling day he may break very rule he sited the day before.
Not just no, but hell NO!
Yes. Not only does he know how to run things, it would make RAT heads explode.
Looks like we’re evenly divided here.
I’m glad I posted this.

Gingrich understood the importance of party discipline, and Rayburn was the last Speaker who could control his troops. Party discipline isn’t pretty — Gingrich showed that — but in a body of 435 people, it’s critical.
I’d make an amazing speaker of the house. If I only had the votes. I’ve got the time, and I’m willing to say on camera, in a press conference.... “We have a difference of opinion with OBAMMY.... and we will not ever pass legislation funding Planned Parenthood. Its not going to happen. Any bills that have tax dollars being spent on Planned Parenthood are dead on arrival, and if OBAMMY wants to shut down the government over funding planned parenthood, then he can shut it down.”
