C-SPAN delivers: Announces full live coverage of Saturday's Herman Cain-Newt Gingrich debate

Last week, you no doubt recall, we wrote here about the Lincoln-Douglas style debate that Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich agreed to have in Texas this coming Saturday evening. Technically, it's a fundraiser for the Texas Tea Party Patriot PAC.

The lengthy verbal duel, with time for fully-developed answers not 30-second sound bites, was designed to circumvent the media's usual entertainment format, designed to produce TV news, gotchas and show off network stars as interrogators. The topics are current economic and social issues and the timekeeper is Rep. Steve King of Iowa.

I am really excited about this. I like both of these men.
I think it has the potential to be the best debate so far!

My prediction is it still won’t be enough time for Gingrich to speak, and Cain will have trouble using all his time.

Ninety minutes of thoughtful, detailed debate over serious issues, officially as part of a party fundraiser. With no commercial breaks and Rep. Steve King as timekeeper!

Hallelujah! Let’s hope and pray this catches on. I am soooo sick of these 30-second soundbite, gotcha, brainless, pointless verbal slanging matches overseen by lefty broadcast clowns. Serious debates, cutting out the MSM entirely would be the “conservative” thing to do.

What does a FORMER President have to do with Cain? Is Cain apart of this “FORMER President”?

If so, spill it. We need ALL facts now.

These two have an alliance. I think Cain would be happy to be VP to Gingrich. And then he can learn and be the President after. I love these two together.

This might be good. It’s very surprising to me that Cain agreed to this. He seems more fitted to the 30 second sound bite. Newt can go on for hours - as he did day after day in the House Special Orders.

I do not see any upside for Cain - a huge one for Newt.

It will be interesting.

A shame that Perry and Romney didn't have the guts to engage in a similar debate. They were offered the chance....no gotcha moderators, no trying to boil their positions down to 60 seconds.

Not surprising to me. Cain will speak to just about anybody with a camera that will take him. It's one thing that's impressed me - he's not afraid to go on liberal shows and cross swords with them. That's something that we need with a candidate, not somebody who shies away from the liberals.

Gingrich could be high on crack and still mangle the English language less than Cain, and exhibit better logic and common sense.

I mean Cain answers questions about basic conservative issues like abortion in a way that leaves reporters incredulous, slack jawed, and peeved.

Since these two will probably be the ticket, lets hope they keep it civil and avoid any unintentional fatal wounds.

"Great" it most likely will not be.

Fantastic!

Instead of a dog and pony show with the enemy in control, we’ll be able to hear what we should be able to - Just what these two plan to do and how.

I am going to put in a stock of popcorn, a couple extra logs to throw on the fire and enjoy myself immensely.

No,. Cain should be president, and MAYBE Newt Gingrich as vp? I would prefer John Bolton as VP. Gingrich has too many character flaws, like leaving his first wife when she was suffering with cancer.

when a GOP candidate wins the next election, he will be in office for eight years, God willing, and that would make Cain 75 years old at the end of eight years. Too old to run for President! Herman Cain knows how to pick effective and capable people, and that is half the game. GO HERMAN CAIN!

For years, I have thought about trying to correct the untrue accounts of this hospital visit. After all, I was at the hospital with them, and saw and heard what happened. But I have always hesitated, as it was a private family matter and my mother is a very private person. In addition, for the four people involved, it was one of a million interactions and was not considered a defining event by any of us.

My mother and I have both recently run into quite a few people who hold an inaccurate understanding of this hospital visit. Many think my mother is dead.

So, to correct the record, here is what happened: My mother, Jackie Battley Gingrich, is very much alive, and often spends time with my family. I am lucky to have such a “Miracle Mom,” as I titled her in a column this week.

As for my parents’ divorce, I can remember when they told me.

It was the spring of 1980.

I was 13 years old, and we were about to leave Fairfax, Va., and drive to Carrollton, Ga., for the summer. My parents told my sister and me that they were getting a divorce as our family of four sat around the kitchen table of our ranch home.

Soon afterward, my mom, sister and I got into our light-blue Chevrolet Impala and drove back to Carrollton.

Later that summer, Mom went to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for surgery to remove a tumor. While she was there, Dad took my sister and me to see her.

It is this visit that has turned into the infamous hospital visit about which many untruths have been told. I won’t repeat them. You can look them up online if you are interested in untruths. But here’s what happened:

My mother and father were already in the process of getting a divorce, which she requested.

Dad took my sister and me to the hospital to see our mother.

She had undergone surgery the day before to remove a tumor.

The tumor was benign.

As with many divorces, it was hard and painful for all involved, but life continued.

So your father is Newt Gingrich? Wow, thank you for sharing your story here. I remember back when your father was Speaker of the House reading the “other” account in some magazine—People, maybe. Of course, they made him out to be a total monster. Surprise, surprise.

I am sorry that I believed their lies.
