Newsbusters ^ | September 2, 2008 | Noel Sheppard

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

“The return of the Newt that I loved and respected...”

Me too. It was nice to see him on top of his game again. The McCain camp needs to line up folks to get his message out over and over and over because the truth hurts Obama.

I don’t think most of America appreciate a woman and her family getting beat up constantly on network news either. It is and will backfire with middle America and that’s the election right there.

I have not seen conservatives getting this fired up in a long time. Prayers for Palin and her family!

Ping to number 50. Do you feel like starting a blog/website where people can list their resume compared side by side to Senator's Obama and Biden?

He says he’s managed his own campaign for more than a year, all that money and all those people.

Personally, if I was running for President, on the grounds that I am qualified because I was running for President, I'd probably be ashamed to show my face in public, out of well founded fear of merciless ridicule.

But that's just me.

Although if running for President is proof that you're qualified to run for President, then why even waste time with getting a real job? Just run directly for President, and cut out the middleman.

The only thing Obama's really done in his life is run for President!

“The only thing Obama’s really done in his life is run for President!”

I think it was Mark Steyn who recently wrote that: “The only thing Obama has ever run is his mouth.”

And he’s not too good at that without his teleprompter.
