Generally the heart of hackery on the political internet, Politico occasionally does something right. Here, they’ve caught Newt Gingrich (first) basically calling Obama a coward for not imposing a no-fly zone over Libya, and (second) criticizing the President for doing just that. Politico explains:
It’s hard to know with Gingrich whether his penchant for this sort of thing is a product of his inexperience with this kind of media spotlight or the lack of discipline that always drew criticism.
There’s a third, more obvious answer: he’s lying. Through his teeth. And picking whatever tack he can to assault the President, not on the basis of principles, but to make himself relevant, and his party look good. How is this not clear?
