Newt Gingrich Slams Obama during His Speeches

"We need a commander in chief with the courage to tell the truth - not a commander in chief who is confused about whether his job is kicking a soccer ball or leading the United States," Gingrich said at a conservative conference in Iowa, alluding to pictures of the president on foreign trips playing soccer with local kids.

Also on Thursday, Gingrich, Gingrich accused Obama of going to war without having a real consultation with Congress. He made the comments at the N.C. State Fairgrounds,

"I think we need a president who actually wants to be president", Gingrich said. Mcclatchydc.com

Gingrich predicted big wins in the 2012 national elections, contending that about 40 seats in the U.S. House and a dozen in the U.S. Senate are obtainable. He drew applause when he said Gov. Bev Perdue also was on the chopping block. Mcclatchydc.com

In remarks to reporters beforehand, Gingrich said he would make a decision about whether to run for president in four to five weeks. He said he was putting together a team and taking the prospect seriously. Mcclatchydc.com

Gingrich also tried to disentangle himself from criticism leveled at him this week over contradictory statements about whether we should be trying to force Muammar Gaddafi out of power in Libya. This month he said the United States should take military action against the dictator, but on Wednesday he said he wouldn't have intervened with U.S. and European forces. Mcclatchydc.com

As a candidate in 2007, then-Sen. Obama said a president could not unilaterally authorize military action without Congress' consent. That's just what he's now doing in Libya. slate.com

In January 2009 Obama signed an executive order to shut down the prison at Guantanamo Bay within a year; a deadline that came and went without him ever setting a new one.

Early in January 2011, President Obama signed a measure that would block efforts aimed at closing the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. Antiwar.com

In March 2011, Obama reversed course and ordered a resumption of military trials for suspects at Guantanamo prison making his promise to close the prison look even more distant.
