Flip Flop Central

In this thread, we attempt to post the greatest flip-flopping political characters of all time. Feel free to post yours. We start with Newt Gingrich considered a gold medalist at flip-flopping. He’s a perennial flip flopper and can keep a straight face, look you in the eye and lie. Got someone better than him? Post them.

On March 7, while appearing on the Fox Greta van Susteren show, Newt Gingrich made the following comment regarding the institution of a no-fly zone over Libya. “Exercise a no-fly zone this evening. … It’s also an ideological problem. The United States doesn’t need anybody’s permission. We don’t need to have NATO, who frankly, won’t bring much to the fight. We don’t need to have the United Nations. All we have to say is that we think that slaughtering your own citizens is unacceptable and that we’re intervening. And we don’t have to send troops. All we have to do is suppress his air force, which we could do in minutes.” Below are two videos that display his flip-flop on the Libyan issue.
