Another Day, Another Newt Gingrich Libya Flip-Flop
David Weigel catches this one:
Newt Gingrich, Feb. 22, explaining why the Obama administration was so weak on Libya.
There’s almost a conspiracy of silence, if it’s an anti-American government. If you’re the Iranians, if you are the Libyans, for that matter, if you’re the Chinese, you are able to suppress your people and the American government stays quiet.
Newt Gingrich, March 24, explaining what the Obama administration should have done on Libya.
Prior to March 3, I would have strongly recommended an Eisenhower-Reagan model… you should have said nothing. Be very quiet. Condemn the violence. Do everything you can covertly.
Does Gingrich really think that people don’t keep track of what he says?
