Gingrich’s® ’13-second flip flop’ – Yes, he even broke his own record!

Via: Think Progress

But Gingrich broke his own flip-flop record yesterday during the online portion of an interview with the Fox News “All Star” panel. First, Gingrich said “there’s no short term advantage to us being” in Iraq.

And 13 seconds later, he said he does not agree with the president’s decision to withdraw troops from Iraq, a position — given Gingrich’s prior statement — that even had conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer confused:

GINGRICH: If you watch in the next few weeks, the Shia are going to go after the Sunnis. I mean the second we are out of that country, the Shia, this is their first chance in hundreds of years.

KRAUTHAMMER: Are you glad that we’re out as a result of that?

GINGRICH: I think — yeah — I think there’s no short term advantage to us being there. And I really thought by the way, trying to leave 3,000 troops was an invitation for total disaster.

KRAUTHAMMER: So you approve of the agreement, or the place where the president has come to?

GINGRICH: No! No. I think we are — look if this president had been serious we’d be in a different place (a different place, Iran maybe?).
