Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich declared that defeating President Barack Obama is a “duty of national security” in a speech to students at Oral Roberts University.
“We are really at risk someday in your life time of losing an American city [in a terrorist attack],” Gingrich said, adding that in that context “defeating Barack Obama becomes a duty of national security.”
Gingrich also stated that Obama “is incapable of defending the United States,” making no mentions of his counterterrorism success, including the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
