Presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich says he will rise from the political ashes once more when voters in upcoming primaries realize his energy and national security policies will provide America with “real solutions.” The former House speaker also told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Tuesday he has no apologies for calling President Barack Obama the nation’s most dangerous president in history.
 
“This is a president who refuses to recognize who is trying to kill us. The FBI spends a year setting up somebody who is a Moroccan would-be terrorist who wants to bomb the Capitol, but under the Obama administration rules, you can't explain what motivates him,” Gingrich said. “You can’t explain why he is inspired to do it, you can’t use radical Islamists, you can’t describe the network he belongs to — and I think there's a desperate effort on the part of Obama and his administration to avoid reality.
 
“They are doing nothing effective about Iran — and if anything, they are undermining and cutting the aid to Israel to develop the anti-ballistic missile system that would protect Israel from Iranian and other rockets,” he said. “So, look at his defense budget which is going to weaken American defenses everywhere. It is going to lead to very substantial cuts in our capability and I think it’s something we should all be very worried about.”
 
Gingrich says his focus on revitalizing Obama’s failed energy policy and its national security implications will be a key component of reviving his campaign. Gingrich has several times been left for politically dead during the race for the 2012 presidential nomination.

“Well, I think in my case I rise by focusing on an American energy policy, getting back to $2.50 cents a gallon gasoline, outlining both the economic and National Security implications, indicating that instead of bowing to a Saudi King we ought to be drilling,” Gingrich said. “And I want to go back to big ideas and big solutions, which twice made me the front-runner in the race. I think the country is hungry for real solutions.”
