Senator jabs at Newt Gingrich’s flip flops on Libya

WASHINGTON – Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) joked Wednesday night that the Fox News Channel can’t seem to reconcile their dislike for President Barack Obama with their support for his military intervention in Libya.

“There’s a big debate going on over at Fox News,” Paul said at the Congressional Correspondents Dinner. “It’s really messed up, I mean they don’t know what to do. They just really can’t decide over at Fox News what they love more, bombing the Middle East or bashing the president.”

“It’s like I was over there and there was an anchor going, they were pleading, can’t we do both? Can’t we bomb the Middle East and bash the president at the same time? How are we going to make this work?”

Paul has questioned the president’s decision to intervene in Libya.

The son of longtime Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), who was first elected to the Senate last November, also took a shot at Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker vying for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012.

“I was happy to see that Newt Gingrich has staked out a position on the war, a position, or two, or maybe three,” he quipped. “I don’t know. I think he has more war positions than he’s had wives.”
