Gingrich's concept of Co-equal branches of Government called "Dangerous"

Former Bush attorneys are apoplectic on Gingrich's suggestion that the judicial, executive, and legislative branches have an equal say in what is and is not constitutional. The despotic branch has overstepped its bounds and been allowed to run wild for so many decades that Gingrich's suggestion is now seen as "kooky." I guess that makes two of us. These Bush attorneys are typical Marshallites.
“There is no Supreme Court in the American Constitution,” Gingrich told an audience in Pella, Iowa. “There’s the court which is the Supreme of the judicial branch, but it’s not supreme over the legislative and executive branch. We now have this entire national elite that wants us to believe that any five lawyers are a Constitutional convention. That is profoundly un-American and profoundly wrong.”-- Newt Gingrich
Positions like this one from Gingrich endears him to me. God bless him.
Although I was revisiting much familiar ground as I read this book, even I was shocked at how dishonest the federal courts have been over the years. And Gutzman just eviscerates all of it, slashing and burning everything in sight, and holding up the ludicrous series of fictions that pass for "constitutional law" to hilarious derision. -- Thomas Wood's review of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution
