King, CNN Anchor Spar Over 'Apology Tour' Comment

Congressman defends remarks saying President Obama has apologized for past U.S. policies in the Middle East.

Rep. Peter King, R-Seaford, and CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien got into a heated discussion Monday morning on the cable news network over King’s assertion the President has apologized for past U.S. policies in the Middle East.

According to a report on rawstory.com, following the recent violence at several U.S. embassies in the Middle East and elsewhere over an anti-Muslim video on YouTube, several prominent Republicans including King said President Obama spent time during his first term on an “apology tour.”

During the CNN interview, O’Brien asked King, “What specific apologies are you talking about?”

The congressman responded, “I would say when [the President] was in Cairo in 2009, when he was basically apologizing for American policies, saying American policies sometimes had gone too far.”

O’Brien responded that the President in the speech mentioned by King did not use the word “apology” and never once said, “I’m sorry.”

And Obama knows about the middle class? He has never ran anything in his life, until he became president. Antoher big problem with our political enviroment in this country is that we do not have a choice on who would be the best person for the job, we have a choose between 2 people and have to choose which one of the 2 is better. Obama has had a chance and failed, so yes i think Mitt is the better of the 2.

Mitt Romney is accomplished business man whom despite being born into a wealthy family, went out and created his own success. Obama never ran anything in his life before he was elected president. So as far as credentials, Obama really didn't have any and Mitt does. Obama's record speaks for itself. He is the most divisive president I have ever seen in my life, inciting class warfare. His ideology of redistribution is unamerican. When Obama took office there were approximately 30 million people on food stamps. Today there are 46 MILLION PEOPLE ON FOOD STAMPS!!! I'm not a Bush fan and you can talk about how bad Of a situation Obama inherited all you want but here are the facts: when Obama took office unemployment was at 7.8% now at 8.1 - largely because so many people simply stopped looking for work! And they are no longer counted as unemployed. Median income when Obama took office was 55,000 and is now 51,000. Gas prices when Obama took office - hard to believe but true was avg $1.85/gallon. Today's avg is is $3.85/gallon. National debt when Obama took office was 10 trillion and today it is 16 trillion. Whatever mess u say Obama inherited, under his presidency he has made it exponentially worse. Our nation is in better shape today than four years ago? Desperately worse. Are you better off than you were four years ago? I know that I am not better off individually and neither is my country.
