    Default Gingrich reverses stand on Libya

    Potential '12 candidate criticizes Obama for not being more forceful, then does an about-face

    WASHINGTON — Likely Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has met his first debate opponent of the 2012 campaign season: himself.

    The former House speaker was quick to criticize President Barack Obama two weeks ago for not being more forceful in leading an international campaign to destroy Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's air defenses and save rebels from impending defeat. Gingrich said the United States should tell Gadhafi "that slaughtering your own citizens is unacceptable and that we're intervening."
    On Wednesday, he did an about-face.
    "I would not have intervened," he said in an interview with NBC News in the morning. "I think there were a lot of other ways to affect Gadhafi. I think there are a lot of other allies in the region that we could have worked with. I would not have used American and European forces."

    Republican approach to every issue.

    If Obama is for it, they're against it. If Obama is against it, they're for it.

    From reading your posts I would say that was your approach to Bush.

    Yeah, I noticed a few on here that did not make up their mind until after Obama did.

    So true Roger!

    I saw the two clips of him back to back, and it was hilarious! How could any republican defend that???

    "we need to establish a NFZ"

    obama establishes a NFZ

    "I wouldn't have done that"

    Its almost comical. What do you really think Stan? Come on, admit. That was pretty lame, huh?

    I mean, I admit when obama does stupid sh!t. I think he's a boner for not flying home immediately when we struck. What do you say about Newt?

    I think YOU and Roger's slo-drip whine is beyond comical.
    It is reprehensible.

    Especially since your master doesn't even know what he thinks or what he is doing or why.



    That's what Stan thinks.

    (btw--I have never waivered on Afghanistan or Libya)

    Okay, so again you choose not to answer a question or even consider saying a fellow republican MAY be wrong once in a while!

    Newt just broke hypocrisymeters all over the land, and republicans still stand by him!

    Actually, you DID answer a question. Thank you. Just not the one you think.

    Listen, genuis, how can you flip-flop on something that doesn't exist??

    Define for me Obama's position, then I will define if anyone has flip-flopped.
    Pretty hard to flip-flop on something that does not exist.

    You expect someone who's been down brown nosing at republican headquarters in Madison to admit that any of his guys are hypocrites?

    It'll be a cold day...
