Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said during Wednesday's debate in Arizona that Barack Obama "is the most dangerous president on national security grounds in American history" (video follows with transcript):
NEWT GINGRICH: Everybody needs to understand, and by the way, we live in an age when we have to generally worry about nuclear weapons going off in our own cities. So everyone who serves in the fire department, the police department, not just the first responders but our National Guard, whoever’s going to respond, all of us are more at risk today, men and women, boys and girls, than at any time in the history of this country. And we need to understand that’s the context in which we’re going to have to move forward in understanding the nature of modern combat.
I think this is a very sober period, and I believe this is the most dangerous president on national security grounds in American history.
