Newt Gingrich on apologies following Quran burnings in Afghanistan: "Our troops get killed, nobody apologizes"

This evening on "Piers Morgan Tonight", GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich joins the program for an honest and engaging interview on topics ranging from foreign affairs to energy policy.

On the heels of the recently reported Quran burnings in Afghanistan, the former House Speaker shares his candid opinions on the apologies issued first by President Obama, and then by General John R. Allen.

"Look around the region. Churches get burned in Nigeria. Does anyone apologize? Churches get burned in Egypt. Does anyone get apologized?" asks Gingrich. "There is a one-sided traffic in outrage which we tolerate and frankly we help enable."

Newt just name-dropped Allan West. Do I smell a cabinet position?

Piers cannot hide his Liberalism. He accuses Speaker Gingrich of saying something he didn’t say.

No wonder the ratings of this Liberal Circus are in the toilet.

What a tool.

CNN ratings are up? I watch CNN all the time (kind of a keep your enemies closer thing), and it’s still the same lousy biased channel it used to be. They spent the whole day calling Newt’s infanticide comment a lie, and explaining how gas prices aren’t Obama’s fault.

I think Piers actually is seeing Newt as telling the truth. The Newt’s answers on oil and algae had Piers nodding his head.

Newt was smiling about his rhetoric of Iran being bad, which also pushes gas prices higher according to Morgan.

I smiled too since that was an easy question to answer. Morgan didn’t think that would trap Newt did he? LoL.

Can you keep an eye out for the inevitable youtube video of this interview? I can’t stand CNN and I’ve probably missed too much anyway to bother putting it on now.

I hope the females of America set aside their fixation with looks as a necessary presidential requirement and focus on substance, honor, dignity and the things that REALLY matter when it comes to fixing the problems America faces resulting from voting for all the wrong reasons in 2008. Hey ladies, what about Paul Ryan for VP? Is that better?

Newt/Ryan 2012

Piers seems to be fair, so far...

It’s so clear to me, that Newt Gingrich is the candidate with the well thought out solutions that are needed to save and restore our Republic.

Thanks for posting this. I would never had known otherwise.

I was a little squeamish when I saw it was an interview with Piers Morgan. But he was o.k. as an interviewer.

Newt knocked it out of the park, as usual.

Newt was awesome. I loved how he calmly gave his answers. The man is a genius. We really like his courage in our family and his solutions for repairing the country. It amazes me that people are still half asleep and not supporting him as their country is being turned into a new country. Newt was right about Obama is a weak president, appeasing to our enemies.
