Newt is also not really impressed with electric cars

Newt Gingrich is zinging President Obama with all the zeal of a Republican nominee, charging that the president "routinely only obeys laws that he deems fit" and sticking with a stance he took yesterday that defeating the incumbent is a "duty of national security." Gingrich took aim again this morning on CBS News, saying the White House refuses to "talk accurately about radical Islam," a tactic he derided as ineffective and "dangerous to America." "This is an administration that no country really trusts," said Gingrich.

The former speaker also took issue with Obama's "outrageously anti-American energy" policies, specifically his opposition to the Keystone pipeline and his "fantasy" that electric cars are "going to liberate us from Saudi Arabia." This on the heels of a Saturday appearance in Georgia, where Gingrich vowed to return gas to the low-$2 range because "you can’t put a gun rack on a Volt." (Read more Newt Gingrich 2012 stories.)
