Waffles for Breakfast

Via Think Progress… Newt Gingrich waffles and flip flops on Libya:

Earlier this month, former Speaker of the House and current presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich was hammering President Obama for not intervening in Libya

Now that Obama has initiated a no-fly zone over Libya, Gingrich has completely reversed his position with no apparent explanation. He told Politico over the weekend — less than 24 hours after Obama took action — that “it is impossible to make sense of the standard for intervention in Libya except opportunism and news media publicity.” This morning on the Today Show, he said plainly, “I would not have intervened”…

On Slate, David Weigel agrees with Think Progress, noting that Gingrich completely changed his position in 16 days.

Then as if it wasn’t enough to flip flop and waffle on Libya, Newt defends himself with some incoherent fluff.
