Newt is also not really impressed with electric cars

(Newser) – 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."

I have this little thing I do and have done for 30 years. I got it out of the Bible, in the Old Testament, where Israel did this sometimes before it went out to war or decisions had to be made or someone selected. It is called casting lots. Now I don't tell people I do this on a regular basis because it is just something I do for my own interests and to see how close the lots come out to what actually happens. Sometimes they are 100% but as often they are completely off. I just thought others might be interested in what came out last night because it came out weirdly. I asked if the United States would be nuked in the next 5 years? Now I have asked this before but never 5 years and the answer came out Yes. Then I listed possibilities such as the Northeast, Southeast, center then Northwest, Southwest, then none of the above. It came out none of the above which first thing I thought was......why then will we be nuked, but I pursued this further. Alaska, Hawaii, New York, Texas, Carribean, nowhere, everywhere? This is what I think is peculiar the lot layed on Texas. As I began to wonder.....why in the heck would anyone want to nuke Texas? It came to me.... it is easily accessible to submarines and if all those refineries were put out we would be out of commission for quite a while. It just seemed odd how this came out.

Obama ignores laws he doesn't like, unlike say Dubya who routinely ignored laws he didn't like, and HW who did the same and the much honored Reagan. Then of course there's Nixon who threw the rule of law out the window entirely if it got in his way. The only threat to national security (and indeed INTERnational security) is one of these clowns actually winning the white house. But since they're all nuttier than aunt Martha's fruitcake there's hardly a chance of that.
