Wall Street Journal's - Washington Wire -- ROME, Ga. — For the second day in a row, Newt Gingrich amped up his rhetoric about the Obama administration’s relationship with the Islamic world.
“There’s something sick about an administration which is so pro-Islamic that it can’t even tell the truth about the people who are trying to kill us,” Mr. Gingrich said to applause from a crowd in a small airport hangar here. Mr. Gingrich accused the White House of being unwilling to discuss threats from some Muslims. And he slammed President Barack Obama for mounting a “war” on the Catholic Church over contraception but apologize to Afghan President Hamid Karzai over the burning of Qurans.
Turning to Mr. Obama’s apology and the rising violence against American soldiers in Afghanistan, he said, “I think we can look into the mind of a president in the speed and thoroughness with which they have disowned their own people.”
Mr. Gingrich made headlines Monday when he said it was “not possible” to “fix” Afghanistan and suggested its citizens should be told to, “figure out how to live your own miserable life.”
On Tuesday, he also included Pakistan. “I would say to the Pakistanis and I would say to the Afghans – you don’t want us to be there, we sure don’t need to be there,” he said. ” You don’t want our money, we sure don’t need to send it.”
Blog author's comments - This article by the Wall Street Journal's - Washington Wire was reported in February 2012 but could have just as well been reported last week. -- Newt Gingrich is one of the few who has the gumption to tell the truth. We need more like him. Being so politically correct that we can't even name our enemies is more than stupid; it is insane if we want to survive.
I firmly believe that the USA is a nation without a leader. At least there is no one in any significant position of authority. This government cannot force us to disbelieve what many of us have believed since 9/11 happened.
