Newt Gingrich Calls Obama Administration “Weak” and “Amateurs In Foreign Policy”



Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich comments on the Obama Administration otherwise known as the ”Gang that Couldn’t Shoot Straight”. Gingrich said, “If We End Up With an Islamist Regime in Egypt, It Will Be Catastrophic”. Egypt on the verge of exploding, the Middle East anxiously watching and we have rank amateurs in office residing over US foreign policy.


Gingrich said:

“This is the most incompetent performance (by the Obama administration) since Jimmy Carter presided over the collapse of the American Alliance in Iran in 1978-79.”

“People will realize that this is a very weak government led by a group of amateurs in foreign policy.”

Remember when Joe Biden said that Obama was not ready to be President during the 2008 campaign … “the job does not lend itself to on the job training” (VIDEO).

From Mediaite, CIA Director Leon Panetta testified to Congress today of a “strong likelihood” that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak would step down based on media reports. WHAT!!! A CIA director based his comments on media reports and not intelligence. UNREAL!

The worse part isn’t that Panetta was basing his statement on on media reports (and not intelligence.) No, National Intelligence Director James Clapper outdid Panetta with his erroneous claim that the Muslim Brotherhood is a “secular” organization.

More from the NY Times:

American officials said Mr. Panetta was basing his statement not on secret intelligence but on media broadcasts, which began circulating before he sat down before the House Intelligence Committee. But a senior administration official said Mr. Obama had also expected that Egypt was on the cusp of dramatic change. Speaking at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, he said, “We are witnessing history unfold,” adding, “America will do everything we can to support an orderly and genuine transition to democracy.”

      I can think of no more damning evidence of Obama’s secret plan to bring the caliphate to Washington, DC than his decision to support democracy in Egypt.

      Has anyone considered that Panetta was hiding the true source of the information, so as not to tip his hand? There may be strategic advantages to not letting some know the extent of CIA information gathering capabilities on such a specific topic.

      On the other hand, does the CIA always respond with 100% true statements, even to Congress?

      Steve’s point is well taken. How much does the American public or the media really know about the inner workings of politics and foreign affairs? Probably a lot less than they think.

      Further, I’m not sure that much can be done to stem the tide of radical Islam sweeping over these countries. It is imbeded in their culture and world domination is the ultimate goal of Islam.
      SM: I would actually ask the question how much Obama and his administration knows about the inner workings of politics and foreign affairs? This President has never proved to be well versed in it and his apolgies for the US have never sat well.
