Given large Democratic congressional majorities, President Barack Obama would swerve to the radical left and adopt a temperament similar to his fiery and controversial pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Newt Gingrich predicted Sunday.
“If Obama went in and had a moderate House and a moderate Senate, he would probably be a very moderate president,” Gingrich said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”
“And his temperament would lead him to much more like [Chicago Mayor] Richie Daley than like Rev. Wright. He’s not going to have that,” said Gingrich, the former speaker of the House and titular leader of the 1994 Republican Revolution.
