In new book, DeLay targets fellow Republicans

Given that it is Tom DeLay, this isn't all that surprising.

In his book out next week, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) "assails" Newt Gingrich as an "ineffective House speaker with a flawed moral compass," according to Robert Novak.

Writes DeLay: "He knew nothing about running meetings and nothing about driving an agenda. Nearly every other day he had a new agenda, a new direction he wanted us to take. It was impossible to follow him."

"Gingrich is not the only erstwhile political ally to feel DeLay's wrath. In No Retreat, No Surrender: One American's Fight, DeLay is even more critical of his predecessor as majority leader, Dick Armey, and assails President Bush for being more compassionate than conservative. Even DeLay's handpicked speaker, J. Dennis Hastert, is accused along with Gingrich and Armey of opening the door to the Democratic purge of him."
