..... "There seems to be nothing that radical Islamists can do to get Barack Obama's attention in a negative way and he is consistently apologizing to people who do not deserve the apology of the President of the United States period," the ex-House Speaker said while stumping in Washington state.
The torching of the Islamic holy books has triggered deadly protests this week. Two U.S. troops were among those killed in retaliation for the burnings.
Obama issued the formal apology in a letter, after charred copies of the Koran were found in a garbage pit on a U.S. air base earlier in the week.
On Thursday, he called the act "inadvertent" and vowed to hold those involved accountable.
Detainees were allegedly using the books to pass messages to on another.
Gingrich - the first of the White House hopefuls to weigh in on the issue - added it was really Karzai who owed the U.S. an apology over the deaths of the U.S. servicemen.
"It is Hamid Karzai who woes the American people an apology, not the other way around," he said in a statement. "This destructive double standard whereby the United States and its democratic allies refuse to hold accountable leaders who tolerate systematic violence and oppression in their borders must come to an end."....

...."That wasn't the only issue that caused Republicans to lash out.
They also attacked the president after he gave a speech in Florida yesterday on his plan to lower gas prices. The president said, "None of these steps I've talked about today represent the silver bullet that will bring down gas prices tomorrow."
Gingrich took aim at that, saying, "The president of the United States explains, first of all, that there's no single silver bullet. Now that's just wrong. Defeating Obama is a single thing that would change everything."..... Source
Did Obama bow to Karzai....or just kiss his ring?
Obama is a Muslim— a slave of Allah -his actions go far beyond mere respect for Muslims- his actions suggest he is a domestic enemy of these United States-even a Traitor giving aid and comfort to our enemy in time of war.Anyone who suggests we are NOT at War with Islam is Ignorant of History and blind deaf and dumb to what the slaves of Allah have been saying about America -and Christians since Colonial time.
Newt steps forward while the others bicker among themselves.
Yeah, Karzai does make me feel pretty "woed" ...wee-weed up, too!!!
Yeah, Karzai does make me feel pretty “woed” ........................Maybe he should just leave on the horse he woed in on?
I drafted an apology from Obama as a joke. Never joke on Freep. It causes reality to resemble the joke.
Obama and the military “leadership” just made matters worse by acknowledging that we burned the books.
If anything, they should have done what they do with the American population, and deny everything. Claim the Taliban burned the books to make as a set up.
Anyway, pull out and nuke from Orbit. I am sick of spending our blood and treasure on ungrateful sheep lovers. If they establish more terrorist training camps, we just come in and kick butt again, then leave. Enough nation building when the people seem to only want tyranny.
Energy Independence, Jobs and National Security [FULL SCREEN it!] Also a full transcript. Spread this around.
My blood boils and my heart breaks every time I see those pictures.
Maybe there is some bigger picture we are not privy to, undoubtedly something tied to energy security, which would be moot if we had the good sense to really become energy independent.
I too agree with how we should proceed with countries like Afghanistan. If they sponsor attacks on us, pay em back 10 to 1, then leave.
Newt’s right on this issue. An apology - after two American soldiers were murdered by these radical extremists - is an outrage.
I am sick this morning. Gingrich is last in the polls for Michigan and Arizona. He is even behind crazy.
“Newt steps forward while the others bicker among themselves.”
Go Newt! i wish that our other candidates would start focusing their attacks on BO the way Newt does. that way, if the MSM ever replayed any of their comments it would be anti-BO, and the American people just might come to realize which side of the political spectrum truly has the best interests of this great country in their heart.
