Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich was in Top Form during a post Las Vegas News Conference-FoxNews with blindspots
Posted on 02/04/2012 9:07:37 PM PST by mitchell001
Newt Gingrich is a brilliant speaker and a brilliant political leader. He demonstrated an opennes and a command of conservatism during his post LasVegas Caucus news conference. Fox News analysts were openly unfair in their analysis of Gingrich's news conference. They were openly jealous that Newt is head and shoulders above Romney, Santorum and Paul. Fox News has blindspots, since only Charles Krauthammer acknowledged Gingrich's superiority over Romney in expressing detailed policy positions such as Obama's denying American Catholics Freedom of Religion by forcing them to violate their beliefs by requiring them to pay for artificial contraception with Obamacare requirements.
Yes. He was real good. He makes it clear that Ronald McRomney can not beat Obama.
I don’t know wheter to get angry or cry. It is disgusting the way Faux News and the gop establishment have treated the ONLY true conservative we have running in this election. Romney openly admitted he is a moderate and he also is proud of his socialized medicine in Mass. What is wrong with people? what happened to the conservatives in the GOP? I am no longer a republican...after all these years of working, donating and fighting for the party..what do we have? one rino after another being supported by them...it is maddening
Newt presser was excellent.
Make that “whether”
Yes, they were unfair and very snippy.
The woman on the panel with the ugly green eye shadow (The Hill reporter) was awful.
The people on CNN were disgusting.
The average person to them are the problem.
The educated elites know better.
I feel like we are in a twilight zone.
I hope people in the other states stop Romney.
It was very good. AND I’m looking forward to his “new strategy” for dealing with Mitt when he out & out lies at the next debate. The reporter pressed him for what the change would be and he wasn’t giving it up. Can’t wait. I think maybe Feb. 22nd.
Dare i say he looked and sounded VERY Presidential.
Very confident he will have Delegate lead after SuperTuesday and Texas.
BTW...I think I’m switching to CNN...
Fox absolutely sucks....get off of Romney’s nutz....please.
...and coverage of Caucus was just horrible.
I thought his “trampoline” for the poor was an excellent contrast to Romney’s not worried about the poor comments earlier this week. I would think Newt can win over many Independents AND maybe even some Dem’s come November with positive talk.
It amazes me how the elite lying establishment is trying to tear Newt down. All the more reason that Newt must be the nominee.
Katie, I watched both Fox and CNN and was utterly disgusted with the analysis. Unrelenting tearing Newt apart and not one word (that I heard) about the $17 million + spent by Romney on 90 % carpet bombing ads against Newt in Florida.
These parroting pundits are living in a parellel universe. Newt’s press conference was great and he said exactly what he should have said.
Romney threw down the gauntlet and Newt picked it up and ran with it brilliantly as only he can do.
Faux News is so inept. They start out by predicting what Newt would say, he talked about something different (brilliantly), then in their analysis they proved his point that the Republican establishment is almost entirely against him.
This is going to be the American Revolution all over again.
I agree......I think Newt just has to continue and he’ll do fine....
One of the panelist at Cnn was laughing about Newt's chances-He was saying get out of the race Newt-this was about an hour or so ago EST.
By the way, I am done with FOX News! Rotten bunch of crap. Guess I’ll have to switch to CNN. Not much better but FOX is done.
The media wants Romney for one reason and one reason only, because they know that Obama will clobber him. Even Donna Brazile said so weeks ago, came out and said it. Unfortunately the Republican party lost its way a long time ago and has not learned their lesson from 2008. They are instead going to nominate a guy that makes John McCain look decent.
Steve, AD(is that her name?), Kraut AND beaming Bret doing a happy dance for their guy, Mittens.
Why do we subject ourselves to this?
Of course they want Newt out of the race, a blind squirrel can see what’s going on..they see Romney as Obama’s ticket to a 2nd term, Obama will win in a landslide if Romney is the nominee. Obama won’t even need illegals or ACORN to help him win, he could win legit
The reason that Romney is so lousy at articulating conservative ideas is because, I believe, he does not really believe in them himself. He has not sold conservative ideas before or done any conservative transformations in public policy.
My belief is that Newt will do well when he is explaining, articulating, selling conservative ideas and viewpoints. That is where he gets the standing ovations. He does poorly when he is on the defensive against the mud flinging from Romney.
You guys watching the same Foxnews I’m watching? I understand there are those who are disappointed to see Romney win, but what I see is Fox reporting the results and the panel giving their opinion.
newt feb 4th...waaaaaaaa romney spent more than me and went negative
newt november 6th...waaaaaa obama spent more than me and went negative
And it wasn’t just his trampoline comment. He also has started talking about that “safety net” being more of a spider web, catching people and not letting them out. A great analogy based on a Conservative principle.
They were very disgusting to a candidate. Wasn’t necessary.
Bret and the rest at Faux can do their happy dance now, but they’ll be dancing to crickets when many of us drop them from our viewing. Don’t just vote at the polls folks; if the coverage isn’t fair and balanced, don’t watch them anymore. If the cheerleading columns are grating- ask to be removed from their mailing lists. If those same screeching magpies are on the radio- switch them off.
right...romney cant win...but the guy who cant beat romney can....oh...that’s logic....
At least CNN hates all of the Republicans whereas Faux kisses the butts of Romney and Santuckabee. Even Ron Paul, for crying out loud.
For AD to say that this news conference of Newt’s will be a “defining” moment of his campaign is ridiculous.
And of course she didn’t mean it in a flattering way.
That’s not intelligent opinion.
Faux news is showing their pro Romney bias in just about every newscast and with most of their commentators.
The formerly unwatchable CNN is more fair and balanced.
I very rarely watch Fox news now. I don’t miss any of their “analysis”
“My belief is that Newt will do well when he is explaining, articulating, selling conservative ideas and viewpoints. That is where he gets the standing ovations. He does poorly when he is on the defensive against the mud flinging from Romney.”
That’s what Kraut said and I agree.
Newt is the only one that poses a threat to Romney nomination. The rest actually help Romney.
You’re such a tool, or is it “fool?”
I might even bring a differing viewpoint (FreeRepublic), as opposed to the Romney choir currently there.
Regarding FNC, look at it this way. These people are pundits, they get paid to say stuff that is provocative. We don’t need them to carry the message, that’s Newts job.
After the presser they were all puzzled, talking about him being “odd”, “in the weeds”, “minutia”, and all that. They couldn’t understand what Newt was doing.
I say, if the pundit class is scratching it’s head, you must be doing the right thing. Sarah Palin is a master at keeping them guessing, Newt’s doing the same thing.
He just needs to avoid sounding nasty, bitter, and like a sore loser. Zingers work better than sarcasm against Romney. Just remember how much mileage we got out of “He voted before it before he voted against it”...that kind of thing works.
Newt needs to treat Romney with the same respect Bush gave Windsurfer Kerry, another out-of-touch elitist wuss.
Pathetic commentary about Newt telling like it really is........Dirty Faux News bastards.
Right and Newt scares the entire Washington, D.C. establishment.
He’s going to upset their gravy train and restore our Republic to its Consitutional Foundations.
Coulter on a rant right now, but she’s up against civil Michael Reagan!
Don’t think I could take that *DINGBAT* tonight.
“They are instead going to nominate a guy that makes John McCain look decent”
Mitt Romney fits that bill! Give me a Mass.. Bawney Fwank... what more do you need as far as a presidential candidate from Massachutesses
I thought Newt’s press conference was fine. I’m still shocked at the orchestrated attack on Newt by the Fox news panel. Its just unbelievable. I never thought I would say it but CNN is reporting more fairly on Gingrich than Foxney news. I used to like and respect Kraut, Cristol, Britt Hume. Now I almost loathe them. I can hardly stand to watch them.
I have been watching, with extreme disgust, how the “Lamestream Media” (cough, cough, barf, barf) has been systematically HERDING the stupid public toward Mitt Romney by coming up with perfectly timed dirt on any other viable candidate. They eliminated Cain, with his possibly unsavory relationship with another woman suddenly surfaces, Palin, with her son and daughter pseudo-scandals, etc. They brought up equally non-relevant stuff on Newt, but to his credit, he hasn’t caved. Romney is a blatant RINO, he would make a lousy President. I don’t entirely doubt that he would be taking his marching orders from the Mormon church, either. The one advantage to him over Odumma is that he doesn’t BLATANTLY hate America and doesn’t seem to be trying to remake it after a Marxist model as fast as he can. What a crappy choice for American voters: a superficial RINO spouting innocuous (or not so innocuous) pap, or a vicious American-hating Marxist imposter.
She called Newt an influence peddler. Big deal. She’s lost her edge and millions of her fans.
That was one very hostile press firing questions at Newt during the news conference. But they’re equally tough on Rick Santorum and Ron Paul. Oh, wait...
Something less like a safety net that simply catches you and more like an internet that connects you to possibilities, information... I guess the net being called a web made me have this thought.
Might want to check CSPAN and CSPAN2 occasionally. FAUX does suck bigtime. I've had it with their romeny BS.
