Sorry Juan. Race card denied.
Juan Williams got booed and then pummeled by Newt Gingrich tonight.
Newt Gingrich pummeled Juan Williams tonight after the FOX contributor accused the former Speaker of using the food stamp issue to attack minorities.
This was awesome.
I wish there was a way for Newt to be our nominee. The establishment has chosen the Mitt....makes me sick.
Every single one of his ideas will be viewed by the minority communities as a way up. I think it is great that he can appeal to everyone. Romney will be a disaster.
GO Mr. Newt!
Good for Newt.
Romney is still calling 0bama a “nice guy”.
It was a rout. Newt was head and shoulders ahead of everyone tonight.
This was but one of about four amazing moments.
Juan was his usual self tonight - obsessed with race.
In his world only blacks can’t find jobs, only blacks get arrested for criminal activity, only blacks are singled out for incarceration.
Newt did give him one of the best slap downs ever.
I was delighted to listen to Gingrich “lay the smack down” on the slow-moving target that is Juan Williams.
Unfortunately, Mitt’s gonna be the nominee, and we’ll be right back where we were 4 years ago with the McCain disaster.
I guess the Republicans have learned nothing.
Newt is made of awesome
Too bad Newt too often has serious diarrhea of the mouth though.
If you like Newt, tell folks why and vote for him come your state’s day in the primaries. It doesn’t have to be Mitt.
It’s really up to y’all, South Carolina. Make Mitt work as hard as Santorum did in Iowa, or better yet, let Rick or Newt win it, and we’ve got a chance. Otherwise....
Newt’s a great debater and has a terrific command of history and the issues and innovative ideas. What he hasn’t had, thus far, is a majority of the voters. SC can change that.
Otherwise, the Mittmobile is going to continue to pick up speed, and by the time Perry and Santorum are done and Ron Paul’s supporters finally realize he can’t win, it may be too late.
Newt is so impressive. If he does not get the presidential nomination, somebody needs to find a way to turn him loose on some of our big problems.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t think you’ve been a fan of Newt’s lately. If so, his performance must have been pretty impressive.
I was cheering so loud my wife asked me if I was watching the Giants game again (apologies to Mid-westerners). Cannot wait to see Gingrich debate Obama.
For a moment Juan forgot and thought he was an intellectual. Newt brought him back to earth with a resounding thud.
Yeah, that was a bitch-slapping.
Juan Williams is a racist POS.
He always brings up race and accuses others of racism when his is rampant, open and undeniable.
Surprised Obama hasn’t picked him for his administration.
Have you noticed that EVERY time Newt rips the MSM he gets huge applause from the audience?
Newt always seems comfortable when he attacks the once formerly Main Stream Media.
BTW, maybe someday soon the MSM will be reduced to mSM, SM or just simply Media. I think Liberal Agenda Media, (LAM), fits them best. Juan is certainly a card carrying member of the LAM.
Yes and when he got canned from public broadcasting most of the people who defended him were white conservatives. Only Fox News offered him a job.
Juan is not a villain, he’s a batting practice pitcher! He did Newt Gingrich a tremendous favor with his line of questioning. Williams knows Gingrich very well. Do you think that with hanging curve he threw the way he formulated the question with all that racist sauce all over it that he didn’t know he was inviting that wonderful response? Juan praised Newt after the debate.
Thank you so much, Juan! Fantastic debate, Newt!
Believe it or not, even Dick Morris told Hannity that Newt won the debate handily, and that he may win SC. I could not believe my ears. Hannity tried to spin for Romney, but the toesucker wasn’t having it. He said it was his night and Romney struggled.
If Dick Morris sees it, surely others do as well. There is time to stop Romney. Tonight he was seriously rattled. It is not a done deal.
In your humble, but ALWAYS correct opinion, would you say that Juan Williams “judges people by the color of their skin?”
BTW, the above quote is from MLK’s “I have a Dream” speech.
“Too bad Newt too often has serious diarrhea of the mouth though.”
Yeah, and Mitt has constipation.
This is what amazes me about the Republican Party. The Party says they need to be more “inclusive” and chuck the conservatives. Yet, far more people say they are conservative than liberals and moderates combined. When we have someone who advocates conservative positions, takes on the media ( our second greatest national enemy ) like Newt does and uses facts in an argument, the crowds go wild. But, the Republican Party tunes this out and marches to the beat of a different agenda. I don’t get it.
This race has forever changed my thinking about Fox, about Hannity, Rush, and really all of these commentators. I don’t feel you can really believe they are all on the side of the people, or truly doing what they do in the name of patriotism. I believe many of them are on the side of their ratings, their funding, their profits, and their public personas.
I will never forget their pandering and bias. I will definitely continue my search for non-biased reliable news sources.
Seems to me that Ron Paul is the one with diarrhea of the mouth, not Newt.
” - - - Tonight he was seriously rattled.”
My favorite Romney-Rattled moment was when Santurum kept telling Willy that he was not answering the question about false statements in a PAC Ad.! Rick used his own time to hear Willy’s many shifty answers.
Romney would make a good replacement for Hilly, the current Secretary of Statements.
You make a very good point - Juan set it up and Newt hit it out of the park.
Newt is the ONLY one running who can take it directly to Obama, and destroy him.
Newt is the ONLY one running who can take it directly in to the face of a hostile, largely-gay national media, and not give a damn about how they whine.
Newt is the ONLY one running who can build the machine required to run in all 50 states.
WAKE UP, PEOPLE. It’s simply NOW OR NEVER. UNITE, of be divided and conquered.
IT’S YOUR CHOICE.
I finally saw the video. If I vote for Newt, he better keep that spine in the general election and the following four years!
I agree with you. Juan knew what he was pitching and knew the batter quite well.
Tonite’s most retweeted Gingrich tweet is from a Portland Comedian named Morgan Murphy:
“the white people in support of Gingrich’s racist comments are cheering so loud they sound like a black audience.”
Lots of irony in that humor: Newt didn’t make any racist comments, and “like a black audience” is a racist stereotype!

Juan reminds me yet again why NPR must be defunded!
“...on the slow-moving target that is Juan Williams.”
I would say that was the crowning moment for Newt. He really took that racist Juan Williams to the woodshed.
Newt was fantastic last night and had both Juan and the verbal diarrhea boy...(what’s his name)Oh yea, Romney, against the ropes last night. It was a sight to behold.
Perry did a stellar job also but was almost completely ignored by the moderators. Paul had some good comments at the first of the debate and finally fell into some type of irrational rant toward the end. It reminded me of the movie “Inherit the wind” when the holy-rolly preacher/lawyer (William Bryant Jennings) broke down into a babbling idiot as he lost the case.
Over all, it was the most exciting and entertaining debate I have ever watched.
I was cheering so loud my wife asked me if I was watching the Giants game
It’s so rare to see politicians ACTUALLY bare their conservative souls without the need to follow the path of political correctness.
Newt shoved that ‘race card’ so far up Juan’s *ss he’ll be walking funny for a month of Sundays.
No one is “always” correct, but I have Juans number.
Kind of like attacking an unarmed individual in a bar fight.
Little whiny, lib juan never had a chance.
Juan was a disgrace last night.
Even after it was ONLY his conservative friends at Fox who came to his defense after his lib “friends” at NPR kicked him to the curb, he still, in his analysis and worldview, embraces an insane liberal Dem view.
People say he is an honest lib. No such thing. If a lib was honest, they would see the paucity of their positions and change them to fit the facts and not their feelings.
If Juan doesn’t get his was schooled last night and change, he is hopeless. He is not an intellectual heavyweight with his positions and his defense of them.
-——would you say that Juan Williams judges people by the color of their skin?-——
The question must be answered in two parts. There is the real Juan and there is the professional Juan.
The professional TV persona is professional black person. That means that as the front for the race he must deliver the party line. He is paid to make such delivery.
As a real person set aside from his TV persona, I would doubt he has strong racial ideology. He is not Sharpton or Clyburn or the Wookie
I am a Newt supporter. Not a fan of the Bain attack. He was terrific in the debate in Myrtle Beach no doubt.
