TPM caught up with Newt Gingrich after a speech at Bowling Green University in Ohio and asked about Rush Limbaugh's apology to Sandra Fluke.
"I'm not paying attention," he responded.
Asked whether he thought he felt Limbaugh misspoke, Gingrich turned the question on President Obama.
"I'm not paying attention," he repeated."I'm paying attention to the president apologizing to people who killed Americans."
The line was a reference to Obama's apology to Hamid Karzai, president of Afghanistan for the burning of Korans by US troops, which he said was necessary to calm deadly violence against American troops that erupted over the incident.
