I laughed my a$$ off on that one. Pelly thought he was so clever and had hit Gingrich with the ultimate “gotcha” Obama/Eric Holder style definition of the Rule of Law.

It was priceless listening to the audience escalate their reaction to Newt's response.

Pelley whispers under breath, no to Newt.

If Scott Pelley is so adament about that his postion is the correct one under US law.

I would love if anybody has any CBS programs condeming Obama for killing of Samir Kahn or Anwar Awlaki

Exactly. What Pelley said is not the law, but rather, the Holder interpretation of the law. Kinda like Holder’s interpretation of murder or Holder’s interpretation of voter intimidation.

That was so great, loved watching it again this morning. Wished they’d have shown Pelley’s smug face afterward.

The Left is scared poopless their man Bammy will be reduced to a babbling, teleprompt-reading loser in a debate with Newt because he doesn’t let democrats or moderators get away with nonsensical statements.

No doubt, He is the smartest man in the room.

Ibelieve it will come down to Newt and Romney,when it does I will go with Newt.

Can we trust him? I dunno.
Can we trust any politician? I don’t think so.

When it come to Newt and Romney I would rather see Newt than Obama light.

Pelley works for See-BS does he not?

Have to twist your brain into a pretzel to get an on air job with them I think! That is assuming you have a brain in the first place. I’m not convinced Pelley did.

This is why Newt is so attractive--while his answer is intuitively right, none of the other candidates up there could have so articulately a) disassembled the fraudulent question and then b) come close to that response.

Pelley reveals the media agenda by jumping into the debate, and the reason why these a-holes' questions should never automatically be taken at face value. They are dishonest, and they are America's enemies, and they need to be treated as such.

Wow, that ones going to leave a mark!

I'm finding it amusing that these leftist media moderators that try to 'expose' the conservative mindset end up getting their tush handed to them publicly. I imagine Pelly either found a rock to crawl back under, or he's planning his revenge at a later date.

A real man would say; "Ok, you got me. You're right."

I would vote for anyone rather than Obama—and I mean Anyone! I believe even Charlie Sheen would do a better job. He would be so stoned and drunk he wouldn’t screw things up at very least. Anyone on that stage (Even Mittens) would be better than Obama!

Even with his perosnal baggage and some questionable positions in the past Newt is so superior to anyone else running not to mention how far above 0dumbo he is I will work hard to get newt nominated.

His brilliance not to mention his strong personality seem to me to be the characteristics we need for our POTUS. Bewt won’t be kowtowing or apologizing for being an American

I believe he sees the direction we need to go and do not worry about some of his past decisions ( hugging pelosi for one)

No you can’t. If Newt or any other RINO were nominated; they would throw the election just like McCain because that is who they are.

It was a simple mistake...

We read Miranda rights to German soldiers during World War II, right? And granted them full access to our court system and a free attorney if they lacked money to pay for one, right? I'm sure that's how it worked.

How could Gingrich not know this? /s

Pelley is clearly clueless on history, consider

To all
This needs to be sent to the CBS News Cretin who mouthed no to Gingrich regarding the whacking of Al-Alwaki.

“.....
Martin James Monti, Peter Delaney, the SS-Standarte Kurt Eggers are Americans who are known to have fought for the Germans in World War II in the Waffen-SS or any other units. There are German records of five Americans fighting in the Waffen-SS in May 1940, American records of Monti's treason case, and also records of eight American soldiers killed during their service to the Germany. ...”

I am sure there were American citizens of Italian descent who went back and served Mussolini and died in that effort.
Probably even a few American citizens of Japanese descent who went back and died for the Emperor. Probably other examples too in past conflicts!

So in short it's been done before !

Now if they want to argue about a need for declaration of war in the “War on Terror” I somewhat agree. Though functionally when Bush was voted authorization it was a declaration of war. I would have proffered one that actually used those terms. Counter argument was how do you declare war on non-state entities, my retort to that was Washington is full of wordsmith lawyers who could generate the right prose, they should have gone and done it!

Newt is BY FAR the smartest person in the room- I hope he is the VP of whoever gets the nom.

I hope it is Cain/Gingrich

I wish they would team up before the Iowa races, along with the other candidates, to make sure Romney loses

Why should the smartest guy in the room be VP?

Have you read Newt’s 21st-Contract? Has Cain laid out anything like that? Does Cain have the knowledge to fundamentally change this country and set it back on the right path? Yeah, right. Could Cain walk into the oval office tomorrow morning and have the slightest idea of what to do without massive counseling?

I like Cain and expect he’ll be in Gingrich’s administration in some high capacity. I would not expect him to be named as VP because he isn’t qualified to become president. But as a cabinet member, perhaps, Secretary of Commerce? Very possibly.

Saw the comments at the CBS site.
LOL! Libertarians usually love Patrick Henry!

“Those who declare war against the human race may be struck out of existence as soon as they are apprehended. He was not executed according to those beautiful legal ceremonies which are pointed out by the laws in criminal cases. The enormity of his crimes did not entitle him to it. I am truly a friend to legal forms and methods; but, sir, the occasion warranted the measure.
A pirate, an outlaw, or a common enemy to all mankind, may be put to death at any time. It is justified by the laws of nature and nations. “

Pelley's precious "courts" long ago determined that the Authorization For The Use Of Military Force was tantamount to, and had the full effect of, a Declaration of War.

In other words, he doesn't even have that justification.

I think Newt is in it for real and will go as far as the primaries take him. If I were the press, he’d be there full time. Some of his ideas about cutting and how to get the folks up to speed and off the federal teat seem much needed.

NEWT GINGRICH 2012! Get used to it.

The “people” have infinitely more wisdom than you could ever hope to have. And they’re liking Newt more and more every day. Gotta say, you’re on the wrong side of the argument.

You sound just like a troll with your insults. I am a conservative and I am tired of people like you who pretend you are when you try to persuade us to vote for RINOS; etc. You know exactly who Gingrich is; yet you continue like children with your silly excuses to push him and others like him on us. He has a track record of letting the people down and not finishing what he started and leaving us hanging.

I as many people do not want to see our country trashed. You obviously think otherwise.
