Gingrich: Hollywood Obama wants to censor anti-Muslim movies

Newt Gingrich, on Fox News last night, accusing Barack Obama of blaming the anti-Muslim video for the embassy terrorist attack.

"Who's responsible for killing our Ambassador? Well, it's a movie. Now what's amazing to me: As the candidate of Hollywood, as the candidate of the Left -- which has been very anti-censorship -- suddenly it's become acceptable to talk about censoring as long as you're censoring anything that offends Islam.

The White House is actually slowly moving toward the GOP's explanation. Yesterday, Jay Carney called it a terrorist attack, and while Obama didn't use that word at a Univision forum, he implied that the video was an excuse for a terrorist attack.

"What we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests."
