Gingrich Slams MSNBC's Allen Concerning Palin's Qualifications
Newsbusters ^ | September 2, 2008 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 09/02/2008 9:09:42 PM PDT by Rufus2007

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich did what conservatives have been waiting for someone to do since Sarah Palin was announced as John McCain's running mate: take on someone in the media claiming that she lacks the qualifications to be vice president.

Such marvelously occurred Tuesday evening on the convention floor in St. Paul when MSNBC's Ron Allen said to the former Speaker, "But to be fair, her resume is not something we're familiar seeing with presidential candidates."

This didn't sit well with Gingrich who strongly replied

I watched that interview. Newt drew and quartered that sap. About time someone threw that "stuff" back in their faces. The best part was when Newt challenged him to name one thing that Obama has accomplished. "Ummmmmmm.......back to you Keith"
It was truly a beautiful thing.

Susan Estrich just slammed the Left for their treatment of Sarah Palin.

Sexist ... I don't agree with her on the issues but she has the right to have her opinions respected. Vicious ....

Estrich had some work done ... in Yiddish we would say, "Ah rois givoffene gelt". (A total waste of money).

I only hope what you’re saying is true.

For every Newt Gingrich (or Zell Miller back in ‘04) that stands ups to the MSM lies, there are dozens more who issue the standard bland “C’mon, you know that’s not true” line.

I’ve said it for years (on FR and while involved in Mn politics) that it’s high-frickin’ time that we started to get combative with the MSM. I think it’d go a long way to curbing their on-air BS.

Why not? There is no money in that account.

The strange beauty of this is it should have been done all along. Ever since 06, the media should have been contained. McCain better have an effective strategy for the signs were there for a long time with Bush.

That was absolutely priceless. That is what we need to do to the biased media everytime a conservative figure is interviewed from now on out. Call them on all of their distortions and shove the truth down their throats.

“It’s stronger than Barack Obama’s. I don’t know why you guys walk around saying this baloney. She has a stronger resume than Obama. She’s been a real mayor, he hasn’t. She has been a real governor, he hasn’t. She’s been in charge of the Alaskan National Guard, he hasn’t. She was a whistleblower who defeated an incumbent mayor. He has never once shown that kind of courage. She’s a whistleblower who turned in the chairman of her own party and got him fined $12,000. I’ve never seen Obama do one thing like that. She took on the incumbent governor of her own party and beat him, and then she beat a former Democratic governor in the general election. I don’t know of a single thing Obama’s done except talk and write.”

nice.

One for Mr Newt. He still has a long way to go and a lot of mea culpas to issue but other than the late William F Buckley nobody in my memory could put a curve ball quiver in the knees of a msm hack like Newt

At the end of the clip, Keith O stated that Newt “left some openings there”.
Anyone know what kind of lies he came back with?

Okay what has happened to the Republican party. They used to just run and hide, now they are all going on the offensive. Rudy just destroyed Bob Schiefer(sp?) on CBS Sunday as did Tim Pawlenty on Meet the Depressed and again on Fox tonight and now Newt.

It does the heart good.

Reminds me of how Gingrich could have succeeded Clinton in the Presidency, if not for his hubris.

Why, Newt, Obama has several years experience on that Annenberg financed commission with William Ayers. Oh, forgot, Obama never really knew Ayers.

But Republicans do need to start throwing it back at the MSM on every damned question, because practically all their questions contain all sorts of leftists assumptions and statements.

And, as has been said here often, Obama is a lightweight, in experience and in off teleprompter knowledge and intelligence. He’s the most unqualified nominee at least since WWII. That’s need to pointed out often, also.

Newt set the example and others need to follow it.

“her resume is not something we’re familiar seeing with presidential candidates.”

Correct. Her resume exceeds that of the present Democratic nominee for President.

But, in the past day or two, Obama has come up with the answer (at least he thinks so) to refute charges that he has no executive experience. He says he’s managed his own campaign for more than a year, all that money and all those people.

Now if that’s not high powered executive experience, what is?

I don’t know of a single thing Obama’s done except talk and write.”

I think we should start a watercooler game using this quote as a model:

In response to any denigration or adverse comparison made by a co-worker, liberal, or neophyte, you merely answer as Newt would:

“Our _________ has a stronger resume Barack Obama’s. I don’t know why you guys walk around saying this baloney. ________ has a stronger resume than Obama. Our ________ meets a payroll every two weeks - Obama has never done that. Our _____________ pays part of our healthcare. Obama has never done that even with his campaign staff. Our ________________ served in the US Military. Obama has never done that. Our ________________________ has x number of employees Obama doesn't have that. There must be over 1 million people in the United States who have more qualifications to be President than Senator Obama - and that's just the democrats! I don’t know of a single thing Obama’s done except talk and write.”

Let's make a game of it! It can become the new "Six degrees of Kevin Bacon." Who's got a stronger Resume than Obama's?
