Video: Gingrich vs. Juan Williams on the “food-stamp president”
HotAir ^ | 1/16/2012 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 01/16/2012 8:39:54 PM PST by TBBT

Via BuzzFeed. Between this, the exchange with Ron Paul on Bin Laden, and the zinger about 99 weeks being an associate degree, I’m thinking he might have turned South Carolina from a solid Romney lead into a nailbiter. Has any candidate at any debate had the crowd more riled up than this?

Here’s the bit with Williams plus, via Breitbart TV, the OBL question. I hope Juan is reporting this as an in-kind contribution to Gingrich 2012. Exit quotation from Tom Bevan of RCP: “Newt really is the Honey Badger.”

Still thought Fox deliberately limited Newt's time.

However, on the whole, Newt did a great job with the time he had.

They didnt give Gingrich “fair and balanced” time to respond to even a few personal hits..however, he is able to say so much more in 30 seconds than most say in 2 mins.

I thought they did as well, though, he was awesome!!

Amazing debate. I think Newt will get a good bump now.

TBBT,

He should run immediate ads— “Who do you want to debate Obama”— Then give his greatest hits.

One thing I absolutely love about Newt is he isn’t the least bit afraid of hurting liberals “feelings”. He tells it like it is without apology.

Newt thoroughly tore Juan (and owebama) a new one. It was a beautiful thing to watch!

As usual they practically ignored Perry, who actually received as much applause as any of them when he did get a chance to speak.

Once again, Newt was at his best tonight.

Personally, I think the proper strategy now for the Newt Super PAC, is to come out with positive strong ideas in short cuts from each debate. Mr. Newt is the strongest of the candidates without a doubt to face Mr. O.

Newt should go completely positive throughout the balance of this South Carolina race and accentuate the positive ideas he has.

I have heard Newt ads on the radio here in Florida for 2 days steady. Tons of Romney TV ads.

Newt did a great job tonight and one of the highlights was him putting Juan in his place.

I am not a big "R" Republican, but those of you who are could be well served with a Newt or Perry nomination.

I know it isn't going to happen as Romney has been virtually crowned. In my most humble opinion Romney will be beaten like a drum by Obama and his minions. No gravitas at all.

I read Hotair where some commentator called Newt a “honey badger”— I’m showing my ignorance, but I had never heard the term and had to look it up——

1. to not give a ***** under any circumstances; to have disregard for others’ perceptions or beliefs

2. to have such an insatiable desire that you’re willing to overcome great odds to satisfy it, such as slapping cobras, or fighting jackals

Sounds like Newt. -:)

Newt is clearly the best debater. He is at his best when fools like Juan Williams try to trap him with loaded questions. It is clear that Newt is the best candidate in the field and the most likely candidate to beat Obama.

Go NEWT!!!

Also TBBT, and I hope I don’t get flamed- but I think Juan Williams has a small conservative streak-—and I have a sense that he asked those questions because he knew Newt would ace it.

In any event, one way or another, if Newt pulls it out in SC, he has Juan to thank.

I remember Juan from his early days on Crossfire. He certainly has matured. He’s still a lib, but one can now reason with him and actually have a discussion. I think you both make a valid point.

Agree with that, and posted a similar thought on the Live Debate Thread earlier. Juan is certainly no conservative--but he's not one of those "tingle-down-the-leg" libtards either.

And--he was not at all defensive about the standing O that Newt got. In fact, it seemed as if he enjoyed the audience's reaction and engagement, and saw it as part of what made the debate so good.

First standing ovation in the history of debates!!!

Who inspires more?

Who do you want to see for the next four (five) years on TV?

Who makes you feel GOOD about your country?

Who speaks and leaves you wanting MORE?

WHO do you want to see PUMMEL Obama and make the debate moderators cry?

Sorry, I had to add that to your list.

Newt would make Obama cry. He’d have to be put into a straight jacket and led out of the debate after 20 minutes with Newt.

With Romney? Well, it would be a big back and forth boring platitude fest. I doubt many would even tune in.

Of course, one would incite riots in the street. The other would result in “business as usual.”

I know which one the powers that be are banking on.

Hillary went into the Democratic primaries under the auspice of a coronation, too. Then Obama snatched the crown and put it on his own head.

Newt definitely displayed the kind of candidate I want to see go up against...ANYBODY! In command of the facts, succinct, to the point, and unafraid.

I've been saying this since last Fall. FReepers better pay attention and think about who can beat this guy:

Newt was fantastic last night.

Everyone should go to the link cited and read the comments left by the readers. That will be the last time that I visit “hot air” in following any links to it. The comments alone are enough to prove the bias in the reports there.

Yep...one commenter called Newt a bigot for the food stamp line. No, the real bigots are those who encourage food stamps as "income".

HA has changed for the worse since Michelle sold it. They've held a few too many open registrations and have allowed too many DUers to run the place.
