President Obama: Koran Apology 'Calmed Things Down'
ABC News ^ | 2/29/2012 | Devin Dwyer

Posted on 03/01/2012 12:36:13 PM PST by mojito

President Obama said his formal apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the burning of Korans by U.S. troops last week has "calmed things down" after the incident sparked an outbreak of violence across the country.

"We're not out of the woods yet," Obama said in an exclusive interview with ABC News' Bob Woodruff at the White House. "But my criteria in any decision I make, getting recommendations from folks who are actually on the ground, is what is going to best protect our folks and make sure that they can accomplish their mission."

The president's comments came just hours before a formal White House dinner to honor Iraq War veterans, some of whom have also served in Afghanistan and may be redeploying there to assist ongoing U.S. military operations. Woodruff was the only journalist invited to attend the dinner.

Any words that come out of his mouth transmogrify reality and become the truth.

And I’m sure the Cretin-in-Chief has the statistics to back this up.

They’re on the shelf adjacent to those hockey stick global warming charts.

This idiot is past stupid.

He defines a whole new level of cretinism.

And Harvard gave him a law degree.

Emphasis on “gave”.

Bammie needs to leave town tonight. To start a World-Wide Global Apology Tour. With stops in every turd-world muzzie hell-hole. Bowing and scraping to his overlords as he apologizes.

If Obambi’s apology calmed things down, then how come two more of our troops were killed today?

Two more of our guys were calmly shot last night.

We can't get out of there soon enough for me. Its the least that can be done for our guys given their grossly incompetent (at best) CinC.

Let Obama face the bullets in Afghanistan rather than the peons he sees facing them now.

Maybe he will change his tune.

This is Obama’s mode of operation. Put a problem before him, and he’ll mess it up, and then claim:

“While what I did didn’t fix it, the problem was more serious than expected. So, without my actions, it would have been worse”.

The lapdog media loves it, and eats it like it’s gravy train. The public is too busy with their smart phones to be bothered with this nonsense.

The Koran, along with golf, is probably one of few things Obama actually knows something about

I suggest local, weekly TGIF Koran-a-que’s using a koran to cook (or at least start the fire for,) some pork sausages or pork ribs.

From yesterday...
 
Will Obama hand over Koran-burning soldiers to Islamic court?

Naturally no conservative would ever have apologized for the Koran burnings.
 
And while Biden, Hillary or Pelosi would have apologized, would this question have been asked of them?
 
I don't think so. No one is legitimately claiming that Pelosi is a Muslim. Or that Hillary believes in Islam. But Obama??? Any rational person understands that B. Hussein is/was/and always will be a muslim.
 
And that's why we worry that he'll turn over US soldiers to a NATO or Islamic court to be tried.

When it comes to golf, it mirrors most other things he does, he’s not very good at it.

In that case, Obama knows that it’s death for these soldiers.

But that would be fine with him.

The UN is also calling for them to be “punished,” and since Bambi has proclaimed us to be under UN law, I guess he’s setting up the guillotine right now.

I wonder if this entire “Koran” contretemps was orchestrated out of the White House? One word and “The Mob” hits the streets destroying property and killing people. One word and “The Mob” is quiet. Hence, the MSM conclusion “The Divine One” is a God! Further, “The Divine One” really is in control of America’s foreign affairs! WOW!!!! “Ain’t he wonderful!

The new casualties are the fault of the previous administration, where we inherited a much more volatile situation than we originally thought.

Print up a few million Korans & put them in a warehouse.

For every NATO serviceman killed, soak a thousand of those Korans in pig fat & burn them. If that doesn’t work — soak & burn 10 thousand/murder.

This Muslim-in-Chief’s ‘apology’ probably did do something to calm the beasts. Oh, it wasn’t an apology; it was an admonition to STFU and behave until this Muslim can be re-elected. After that the beasts and do their will, willy nilly. He won’t care.

That would of course be unthinkable....or should be. The Korans in question had already been desecrated by the Muslims....they were using them to pass messages along to others. If it is true for a Muslim to lie if it is for the good of Islam, then explain that to the parents of the executed....

General Allen, the enemy you face is this president. Protect your troops!
