Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said President Obama "surrendered" Thursday when he apologized to the Afghan government for the burning of several Qurans at an American military base near Kabul.

Referring to the burning of "radical Islamic material" that included the Qurans, the former House speaker said the situation had been "blown into a huge incident by various fanatics in Afghanistan." He told a crowd gathered at a campaign rally at the Bing Crosby Theater that while the president had apologized for the burning, he had not called on the Afghan government to issue an apology for the deaths of two NATO soldiers who were killed by a man wearing an Afghan army uniform during increasingly violent protests of the desecration of the Muslim holy book.

"There seems to be nothing that radical Islamists can do to get Barack Obama's attention in a negative way," Gingrich said, "and he is consistently apologizing to people who do not deserve the apology of the president of the United States, period."

lol I think one of the great problems we have in the Republican party is that we dont encourage you to be nasty. We encourage you to be neat, obedient, and loyal and faithful and all those Boy Scout words.

I'm hoping this Cracker will pack it up and head back to Pea Nut land soon. He isn't even a qualified candidate for dog catcher.

Well that little feature alone should make him more than qualified for the highest job below the 49th if the behaviour of his predecessors is any judge.

I couldn't care less about his pecadillos but his idiotic ravings make the rest of the bunch look positively Rhodes Scholarly by comparison. Brother; Ron Paul looks better and better every day to me.

But he confesses afterwards so it is OK. Not like a democrat that says "so what"
Much the same as it is OK for a republican controlled government to deal millions of dollars of coke but not ok for a democrat to have a toke.

I think Obama did the right thing in this instance it was not sanctioned by the Government but
people there were acting in a role of government paid for by government. It clearly demonstrates
how arrogant the Republican nominees are to think they can just insult people in their own nation
and not be accountable. I have lots of problems with the way the Muslims behave but the act
was stupid and not necessary, done by bigots.
I also think the Afghans should apologize to the Americans for the people who behaved like
savages. This is the twenty first century. People have a right to be outraged but they don't have
a right to commit murder over the burning of a book.
