He's criticizing Obama now for not immediately bombing Libya (taking up the old McCain theme, I guess) and said he was basically inactive in helping Japan with their nuclear crisis. Oh my let me count the ways that Gingrich is a troll. It's hard to beat the first paragraph for a few of them but keeping it current, is he totally nuts? Probably not, and as for being a troll, he only looks and acts like one. He's actually a grifter. He's one of those smug guys who tells everybody how smart they are and has to always have the last word even if they know nothing about the subject. For all he's supposed to be an intellectual, it's looking less and less likely that he is.
Libya is a complex situation at the very least. If the US goes over there with fighter jets under the auspices of the UN at least we are part of a group. We will have less cost and responsibility for the outcome.
I think everybody can see the concern for the Libyan people, but when it comes to what to do, that gets tougher. The United States has gutted its own manufacturing base by selling it off to the highest bidder in a drive to get more profits for the stock market. That means less jobs to pay for all the things we have taken for granted government can do within its own country, things like maintaining roads, checking on food safety, enforcing regulations on polluters, educating children, managing the safety of the public, protecting our borders, seeing to those aspects of the Constitution that Republicans often seem to want to forget like:
... to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity...Given what has happened to our jobs, we are hard put to do what the Constitution calls out as duty-- especially with two wars still going on in the Middle East, wars that we had no business fighting except for the need for foreign oil.
So here is Gingrich wanting more wars and mad at the president for not personally cleaning up Japan' nuclear disaster. I just have two questions:
To whom is this man pandering and is it working on them?
Has his current wife ever worried what will happen if she gets sick?
