Newt Gingrich fires back at Meghan McCain: "How would she have a clue?" [VIDEO]
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/27/2011 | Michelle Fields

Posted on 10/27/2011 2:43:45 PM PDT by martosko

Newt Gingrich doesn’t seem fazed by criticism from Meghan McCain that his campaign is just a “vanity project.”

“How would she have a clue?” asked the former Speaker of the House in a Wednesday interview with The Daily Caller.

Gingrich seemed surprised by the accusation from the Daily Beast columnist and daughter of Senator John McCain — especially since his poll numbers mirror her father’s in 2007.

Meghan needs to run for office OR the press needs to find a daughter of a dem who will trash dems.

She had no business being on the stage.

“How would she have a clue?” LOL! Good answer.

She’s such a dimwit. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and all that...

Does anyone know if Meghan Mc Cain has a job? Being fat unattractive and uneducated is no way to go through life.

I assume she gets a family allowance, I can't see any private employer hiring her at anything.

“Fires back”? What a b/s title. This was, and is a nothing. It’s certainly not news.

She is a joke, if anything she exposes who the real John McCain is, along with his wife.

Good for Newt! It’s way past time someone told the little, full-of-herself twit off. She’s like David Brooks — making a living by passing herself off to the liberals as a “good” Republican.

I wish I had more faith that he would walk the walk and not go wobbly.

Although many conservatives are not big fans of Newt Gingrich, I like his direct style, especially when asked a question about the snarky opinion of airhead Meghan McCain who termed Newt's candidacy a "vanity project". He dismissed her snide comment with one of his own: "how would she have a clue?" and by doing so, put the little twerp in her place. Newt may or may not win the GOP presidential nomination but I don't mind seeing him in the race. If he can stay focused on the economy and not make any real blunders, he could have a shot. However, I'm still backing Herman Cain.

AGREED! He appears to be no-nonsense, speaks well, and has a long memory. However, he is damaged goods for conservatives, sitting down with Pelosi. That is unacceptable!! But I do like to hear him speak.

While Meghan McCain was speaking at the Newseum on Wednesday, Newt Gingrich was just a few miles away dismissing the Daily Beast blogger.

The Daily Caller caught up with Gingrich at the Capitol Hill Club for the Republican Lawyer of the Year awards and asked him about McCain calling his campaign a mere “vanity project.”

“How would she have a clue? I mean, everyone’s allowed to have opinions but I just spent the last nine days on the road. We’re in the process of opening offices in South Carolina, New Hampshire and Iowa and I think in yesterday’s New York Times/CBS poll I’m in third place. I’m actually exactly where her father was, in third place, at this point in 2007,” Gingrich told the Daily Caller while the cameras rolled.

“Do you think her opinion will have any sway with young Republicans?” they asked. Shaking his head and smiling, Gingrich said, “No.”

I doon’t know if Newt will win the nomination, but if Meagan is against him, that does give him a better chance.

She doesn’t know spit from Shinola.

In fact if she had dark hair she would look exactly Monica Lewinski.

Her Mom owns a beer distributorship.
Maybe Meghan is an official taster.
She has the physique for it.

I agree. That was a great answer by Newt. I am still leaning his way.

I would love to love Newt. I really would but why does he have to have 3 wives? Why did he have to embrace Pelosi and global warning.Why did he have to step down as speaker? Why did he have to unnecessarily trash Paul Ryan?

Why, why , why?

That's nothing compared to a candidate for the (R) nomination that was the Texas state campaign manager for Gore, the father of the man made global warming scam?

I want so much for his head (brains) to be plopped on to whatever we end up with ... and I can still Vote for Him ... IF he disavows his STUPID Man Made Global Warming position of the past.

The rest of his baggage is a nat compared to Zeros baggage

As I – you know -- listened to her on – like -- Larry “Cadaver” King, I kept thinking about something about which Boortz frequently reminds -- you know -- his male audience: “At some point, you’ll have to try to have a conversation with her.” I also kept thinking – you know -- that she HAS to be from – like – California or somewhere until I remembered that – you know -- Arizona also has – like –valleys and stuff and – you know – really big holes in the ground.

Are you so dull that you don't realize your comment is tantamount to agreeing with Megan ‘the clueless’ McCain? ... I suspect you know your little off-handed remark about doubting Newt will walk the walk is nothing more than a different phrasing of the same ignorant thing clueless spittled out and Newt asked 'How would she know?' ... Which of the rinos are you supporting, Ron?

Are you aware you are supporting rino Newt with that comment or are you so busy looking for shadows and people under your bed that you would jump on a fellow FReeper with an extensive posting history that you are free to read any time you care to that you don't even realize it?

If you had bothered to take the time, or at least thought about it you might not be kicking tables across the room with your reactions.

For the record, I do not support any of these candidate....yet. Though at THIS point I am leaning toward Cain.

I have been through enough of these to know how fast things change and to voice any support at this time is not a wise or even worthwhile thing to do.

Now, quite being a knee jerk reactionary and wise up.

Oooo, nice try to mischaracterize my post in your stilted perspective. Kicking tables across the room? LOL, stick to your day job. Knee-jerk reactionary? LOL again, you just acknowledge, by trying to msicharacterize, that I identified your motivation accurately. Have nice day ... I’m a Newt Gingrich supporter now, I had my epiphany a couple of weeks ago.

You’re an idiot. Your knee jerk reaction was that I had any motive at all.

Like I said, paranoid.
