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."

I just watched and it will be continued on Monday. Good interview. Piers was trying desperately to trip him up. And I admit I’ve never watched an episode of Piers Morgan in my life and ONLY one clip from an interview link posted here on FR a week or two ago.

Piers is always out gunned, especially when he interviewed, if you want to call it an interview, Ted Nugent.

Piers would wet himself if he was in the same room with a Gun, or Newt Gingrich for that matter.

Piers is a typical Liberal Pussy.

I do believe Piers was Impressed. At least he asked good questions and you could tell he was surprised at the answers. Newt was Fabulous!

Piers was just downright nasty, snarling.

You could tell the difference when his Hollyweird guest came on next and he was all jolly(didn’twatch that guest).

Gingrich / West 2012, even if it's just so I can watch the Debates over and over again.

Newt did two previous interviews with Piers and the full episodes are on Newt’s YouTube channel. I watched the second one and it was very good.

Newt is the only candidate that has slammed this traitor-in-chief for this - and the media and everyone is slamming NEWT for saying it!

But We the People agree! We need Newt or we becomes slaves.

Newt - plain & simple

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/02/23/gingrich-first-to-hit-obama-for-afghanistan-apology/

Listen to this gal after she gets warmed up - I hope the Narcissist-in-Chief sees this.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4cL9gQsnWE&feature=related

I can’t find the video now - but there was one of U.S. Gen. John Allen apologizing to Kazai profusely - all but getting on his knees to beg forgiveness. It would make you sick to your stomach. It wouldn’t happen under Pres. Gingrich.

I wished that Newt had been able to get a bottle of water. He had a “frog in his throat” which detracted a little from the message. :-)

I hope that's all it is. He has been clearing his throat a whole lot lately.

My late B-I-L had Esophageal Cancer and he had the same problem early on.

Maybe I'm getting paranoid...

If you actually listen to the candidate instead of what’s said about them, Newt is on top. Same as Sarah.

Loved it when Newt called Obama a “Left-wing radical”.

No way in hell Willard Romney would ever have the nerve to call Obama anything close to that.

Thanks for the tip - here’s the link

http://www.therightscoop.com/newt-owns-piers-morgan-over-obama-koran-apology/

Newt is the ONLY candidate who mentions - or probably even knows what - the ROE are - that obama put in, giving the taliban the upper hand and has doubled,then tripled, then more that tripled out troops killed in 2009, 2010,2011.

The media is silent, the public is blind, and our soldiers blood is DIRECTLY on obama’s hands.

I wish Newt could have worked this into one of the debates - He’s educate the public and the other candidates would be sitting there wondering what he was talking about

He is the ONLY candidate that has the skill set to beat Obama, unite/excite the conservative base, and truly do a 180 on the direction in which the country is headed, turn us back to our conservative roots and constitutionally limited government. Both libs and RINOs are scared to death of him. GO NEWT GO! NEWT 2012 T-Shirt

Piers Morgan is rather unaffectionately known as Piers Moron over here in the UK.
You can see why.

Piers is dripping in Contempt when interviewing anyone he personally disagrees with and people don't even see it.

He is quite the smart ass. Not as swarmy as Bill Maher, but I'm sure Piers British Accent takes a bit of the edge off.

Actually Piers is usually pretty tough on most everybody...and comes across as snarly and such. But from what folks are saying he couldn't trip Newt up... and for that you can bet Piers "respects" Newt...and their's very few who could get that from Piers.

Newt should do more of these type interviews to get his train back on track.

He destroyed Piers Morgan, using the type of common-sense conservative logic that would have working Americans jumping to their feet and cheering wildly.

GO NEWT!
