Fox News military analyst Col. Oliver North (USMC, Ret.), asked by The Daily Caller which GOP presidential candidate he would like to see as commander in chief, replied that he has pledged his support to his longtime friend Newt Gingrich:
North told TheDC at the Conservative Political Action Conference that “two years ago, when [Gingrich] suggested he might run, he asked for my support. I pledged I would do it,” he said. (RELATED: More interviews from CPAC)h/t: Coloradans With Newt
“It’s time for us to hire a commander in chief who doesn’t feel necessary to run around the world apologizing for America,” said North.
“I’m deeply concerned that if we don’t hire a new commander in chief… we can indeed end up in very, very serious jeopardy in this country,” he added.
