Newt: U.S. at greater risk under Obama By: Fred Barbash April 6, 2009 01:40 PM EST
The U.S. is at greater risk of terrorist attack because of the Obama administration's actions, Newt Gingrich said Monday.
In a chat with POLITICO readers, Gingrich also called the administrations response to the North Korean missile launch a vivid demonstration of weakness in foreign policy. He said Obamas proposals for a resumption of nuclear arms limitation talks reflected a dangerous fantasy that runs an enormous risk. ... Not since Jimmy Carter have we had an administration this out of touch with reality.
Dick Cheney is clearly right in saying that between the court decisions about terrorists and the administration actions, the United States is running greater risks of getting attacked than we were under President Bush, said the former speaker of the House and Georgia congressman.
Gingrich made his comments in a live reader chat in POLITICOs Arena forum, where he was asked about former Vice President Dick Cheneys recent assertions that the Obama administrations decision to close the detention center at Guantanamo, among other actions, was making America less safe.
In his comments, Gingrich blasted Obama over a broad array of policy decisions and comments.
On the North Korean missile launch, he said the embarrassing repudiation of the United States appeal to the United Nations Security Council Sunday afternoon is a vivid demonstration of weakness. This is beginning to resemble the Carter administrations weakness in foreign policy.

Carter’s 2nd Administration
When the numbers of people in America who are out of touch with reality passes the 50% mark, this is what happens.
Reality is a hard schoolmaster. Its the Louisville Slugger of a schoolmaster, and you keep getting schooled until you either learn the lesson or a brighter and tougher generation grows up and takes the lead, having learned from the mistakes and delusions of their elders.
They have spoken often about not letting a crisis go to waste and have perhaps created the financial crisis and then used it to pass a great deal of the liberal agenda, spend massive amounts of money, more or less nationalize the banks and potentially take over GM and sell off Chrysler.
Any domestic terror attack would be exactly the kind of crisis for him to be able to declare some form of martial law and give him almost absolute control.
ACORN will soon arrive to to inform you of the ^real^ reality.
If you don’t agree, YOU A RAYCISS
Our enemies couldn’t have picked a better president.
Exactly. I hope the "Hope and Change" is working for that 50+%. Personally I think it stinks.
I wonder if Newt wants the president to succeed.
WE, Usn’s, the US will be the only ones to get rid of our nukes. Nobody else will and we will be in deep doo.
If we got rid of our nukes we would cease to exist in VERY quick order
I'm sure Kim was quaking in his jumpsuit.
