Newt Gingrich proves that leadership isn't about bombing Libya, it's about being consistently against whatever Obama does. (5:14)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE).

>> Stephen: THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WELCOME TO "THE REPORT".

THANK YOU, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

PLEASE.

YOU'RE TOO KIND.

FOLKS,... (CROWD CHANTING "

STEPHEN")

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE).

>> Stephen: THANK YOU, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN.

YOU KNOW... THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WHO AM I TO FIGHT A RISING TIDE

OF LOVE?

NATION, ELIZABETH TAYLOR MAY

HAVE SADLY GONE TO THAT BIG

PERFUME COMMERCIAL IN THE SKY,

BUT WE'VE STILL GOT ANOTHER

FASHIONABLE OLD LADY IN A NEW

NEW AND TURBAN.

MOAMMAR QADDAFI.

(LAUGHTER)

LAST WEEK PRESIDENT OBAMA IN

COALITION WITH NATO AND ARAB

PARTNERS LAUNCHED A FULL-SCALE

SOMETHING ON LIBYA.

NO ONE'S SURE WHAT TO CALL IT.

FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS A WAR,

THEN A HUMANITARIAN MISSION,

THEN A LIMITED OCCUPATION NOW

THIS.

>> THE PRESIDENT IS OBVIOUSLY

NOT HAPPY WITH HIS SET OF

CHOICES.

ONE PERSON TOLD ME IN THE

MEETING HE CALLED THIS MILITARY

ACTION IN LIBYA A TURD SANDWICH.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Stephen: WHICH BRINGS US TO

OUR CONTINUING COVERAGE OF "TURD

SANDWICH IN LIBYA."

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

FOLKS, I DON'T BLAME THE

PRESIDENT FOR FEELING THAT WAY!

THE SITUATION IN LIBYA IS SO

MUDDLED RIGHT NOW THAT COALITION

FORCES CAN'T EVEN SETTLE ON THE

SPELLING OF THE ENEMY'S NAME.

THE FRENCH SPELL IT LIKE THIS,

THE SPANISH SPELL IT LIKE THIS,

THE BRITS LIKE THIS, THE

ITALIANS LIKE THIS, AND THE

QATARIS LIKE THIS.

(LAUGHTER)

THAT WAS MADE UP.

I THINK THEY'RE JUST (BLEEP)ING

WITH US.

(LAUGHTER)

SO IN A DESPERATE, DESPERATE SAD

ATTEMPT TO CLARIFY WHAT HAS BEEN

CALLED OBAMAS VIETNAM BY MANY OF

ME...

(LAUGHTER).

... LAST NIGHT THE PRESIDENT

ADDRESSED THE ENTIRE NATION AND

I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED BY IT THAT

I DIDN'T WATCH.

(LAUGHTER)

THERE'S NO NEED TO.

I HAVE MY COLLEAGUES.

>> THE PRESIDENT'S SPEECH

TONIGHT HAS MADE THINGS EVEN

MURKIER THAN THEY WERE BEFORE.

>> PROFOUNDLY DISAPPOINTING

SPEECH BECAUSE IT PROVED THAT

THE OBAMA DOCTRINE IS STILL FULL

OF CHAOS AND QUESTIONS.

>> THE SPEECH WAS A DOG'S

BREAKFAST.

(LAUGHTER).

>> Stephen: YES, A DOG'S

BREAKFAST.

OBAMA'S SPEECH WAS LIKE BACON,

JALAPENO CORN MUFFINS AND

POP-TARTS.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

BY THE WAY, MY DOG GIPPER HAS A

SERIOUS CASE OF THE RUNS.

(LAUGHTER)

I HOPE I'M GIVING HIM ENOUGH

JALEPENO CORN MUFFIN.

NOW, SPEAKING OF WITCH, FOLKS,

YOU KNOW WHAT CHAPS MY ASS?

OBAMA'S PLAN INVOLVES

SURRENDERING AMERICA'S

LEADERSHIP OVER TO NATO WHICH IS

LED BY LIEUTENANT GENERAL

CHARLES BOUCHARD OF CANADA!

CANADA!

(LAUGHTER)

CANADA?

(APPLAUSE)

GREAT.

GREAT.

INSTEAD OF A NO-FLY ZONE, WE'RE

GEL A KNOW FLY UNLESS YOU REALLY

WANT TO IN CASE BUT WE PREFER

YOU DIDN'T BUT GO AHEAD ZONE.

SORRY.

AGAIN, I DO NOT HEAR THE

PRESIDENT'S SPEECH BUT IT REALLY

SOUNDED WEAK TO ME.

I WISH HE SHOWED THE KIND OF

CLARITY THAT NEWT GINGRICH

SHOWED ON MARCH 7.

>> WHAT WOULD YOU DO ABOUT

LIBYA?

>> EXERCISE A NO-FLY ZONE THIS

EVENING.

THE IDEA THAT WE'RE CONFUSED

ABOUT A MAN WHO ANN HAS BEEN AN

ANTI-AMERICAN DICTATOR SINCE

1969 JUST TELLS YOU HOW INEPT

THIS ADMINISTRATION IS.

THIS IS A MOMENT TO GET RID OF

HIM.

DO IT.

GET IT OVER WITH.

>> Stephen: INCIDENTALLY, "DO

IT, GET IT OVER WITH" IS ALSO

THE E-MAIL NEWT SENDS TO HIS

DIVORCE LAWYER EVERY THREE YEARS

(LAUGHTER)

WHICH IS, OF COURSE, DUE TO HIS

LONG-STANDING OPEN-FLY ZONE.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

FOLKS, I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU I

EVEN WOULD HAVE PREFERRED THE

KIND OF CLARITY NEWT SHOWED ON

MARCH 23.

>> I WOULD NOT HAVE INTERVENED.

I THINK THERE WERE A LOT OF

OTHER WAYS TO AFFECT QADDAFI.

I THINK THERE THERE WERE A LOT OF

ALLIES IN THE REGION WE COULD

HAVE WORKED WITH.

I WOULD NOT HAVE USED AMERICAN

AND EUROPEAN FORCES.

>> Stephen: BECAUSE LEADERSHIP

IS NOT ABOUT BOMBING OR NOT

BOMBING.

LEADERSHIP ABOUT BEING

CONSISTENT.

.. I WILL AGAINST WHATEVER OBAMA

DOES.

(LAUGHTER)

ANYWAY, THE SPEECH WAS A FAILURE

BECAUSE IT DIDN'T ANSWER THE BIG

QUESTIONS, WHAT'S THE EXIT

STRATEGY?

HOWWILL IT COST?

IS THIS IN AMERICA'S VITAL

INTERESTS?

ALL QUESTIONS THAT ARE JUST AS

VALID NOW AS THEY WEREN'T
