Clinton clarifies Obama 'win' remark, issues warning on Afghanistan, Syria

Rabat, Morocco (CNN) - Criticism of President Barack Obama's apology for the burning of Qurans in Afghanistan is not helpful, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday in a wide-ranging interview with CNN.

"I find it somewhat troubling that our politics would enflame such a dangerous situation in Afghanistan," Clinton said of the complaints by Republican presidential candidates and some experts about Obama's apology.

    Some lying lady with a vote for Obama sticker on her bumper just backed up into my wifes car! The obama lying lady got out and asked my wife why she backed into her!! Obama is rubbing off and instilling his values on Americans!!! Now since it was in a meijer private parking lot the police can't do anything and were gonna have to buy a new rear bumper panel cause insurance will say he said she said.

    Obama is doing everything he can to be re-elected. The housing market is up, the economy is rebounding, American soldiers are coming home rather than headed out to war and jobs that were out sourced are doming home.

    The Republican candidates are doing everything possible to re-elect Obama. They are dividing their support into polarized camps, each of which cannot stomach the opposing candidates. They are showing the rest of the country that their idea of an issues based campaign is horrible personal attacks mixed with statements that claim each candidate is the only one being honest. These fools are attackingt each others religious viewpoints, spouses, honesty, integrity, friendships, sponsers and their base constituents.

    By the time it comes down to the election, the Republican candidate will look like a skeleton wrapped in a flag. I don't think it will do the country any good to have the Republicans self-destruct as a party. The Tea Party is an example of what might fill the void if the Republicans end up killing off their own party.

    Matthew – Santorum is a loon and his values belong in the Dark Ages. The only thing rubbing off right now is Santorum's shine as America gets a good look at his peculiar little brand of insanity. P.S. As a former claim adjuster, in 99% of all parking lot accidents, BOTH parties are at fault. Your wife was backing out, the other woman was backing out... they hit because NEITHER of them were paying attention. Get over it.

    We love you, hillary. I think Gas prices are Iran's drama. They do not want Bin laden's killar in WH. Just think about it. Yes, GM alive, Bin Laden Dead.
    PS: I am suspecting gas hike and cut production is Saudi nasty drama...They want Oil to sell in USA. I think we need to push Energy efficiency., and Oil-independence....period.

    Other than bigotry and stupidity, what other right wingnut values are there?

    I know that people who tune into foreign owned media with a hint of Saudi, Fox, did not know that they received a tax break from the stimulus, and are afraid of : women, cartoons, muppets, minorities, the middle class, workers, police, firemen, teachers, post office workers, and civil rights.

    I wonder if the right wingnuts know that gasoline was $3.07 a gallon in May of 2007, $3.50 a gallon in April of 2008, $4.11 in July of 2008. I know, that was President Obama's fault.

    @ matthew
    How do you know that your wife is telling you the truth ? Maybe she backed into the other woman. Oh yeah, I forgot, the other woman had an Obama sticker on her car so it had to be her fault. Get over it. It was an accident and that is why we all HAVE to carry insurance.

    Sanatorium is against women, contraception, gay people, etc. He is the bible-bangers hero, which of course means,
    he will go down in flames again and again. He makes unelectable Romney look like a shoe-in.
    Hillary Clinton is so above all those GOP flops, particularly intellectually, that she should not really appear in the same

    So, you are calling 52% of Americans liars(the correct spelling, by the way). You know 'pretty-boy' can only possibly get 15% of the vote...the rest will be 'pity votes' cast only to try to beat our President. There are not nearly enough batty, right-wing nut cases, even in the south, to get a win for any reptili'con'.

    When will Americans wakeup and realize it is to our "strategic" advantage to deplete the supply of foreign oil before we start using and depleting our own. Does anyone know how much oil supply is left in the Middle East, does anyone truly know how much oil supply the U.S. has? What if the U.S. doesn't have enough oil supply after it's cutoff oil from OPEC, do you think they will sell us oil at less than $100/barrell. Wakeup people, think, we either pay more now or not be able to pay at all in the future. Don't let the "political blame game" take advantage of your common sense thinking.

    Santorum is the american version of the Taliban. They both desire to return to the ancient past when women were chattel.
