Gingrich Weighs In On Egypt
Via Matt Yglesias, a recent interview with Newt Gingrich:
VAN SUSTEREN: How is President Obama doing on Egypt?
NEWT GINGRICH: I don’t think they have a clue. I think it is very frightening to watch this administration.
VAN SUSTEREN: Would anybody?
NEWT GINGRICH: Reagan would have. Reagan would have had — Reagan would have thought about and studied radical Islam and Reagan would have had a strategy and would have pursued it. He didn’t do that in the 80s some are going to want to complain for a practical reason. Reagan had one foreign policy goal in the 1980s, defeat the Soviet Union. He didn’t divert himself because he wanted to defeat the Soviet Union.
1983 Lebanon. I like this logic though. President Clinton would have been really good at not getting into sex scandals, but he was too busy reducing the deficit. He just didn’t have time.
