Newt Gingrich - for 'no fly zone' before he was against it

Gingrich is a shameless douchebag. There is no other way to explain this.

Gingrich a couple of weeks ago:

Exercise a no-fly zone this evening. … We don’t need to have the United Nations. All we have to say is that we think that slaughtering your own citizens is unacceptable and that we’re intervening.

Gingrich today:

I think that two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is a lot. I think that the problems we have in Pakistan, Egypt — go around the region. We could get engaged by this standard in all sorts of places. I would not have intervened. I think there were a lot of other ways to affect Qaddafi. I think there are a lot of other allies in the region we could have worked with. I would not have used American and European forces.

It's the old Groucho Marx ploy, "Whatever it (Obama does) is, I'm againsst it." And the media still take him seriously.
