Skip to comments.Newt owns Juan Williams For Race-baiting Question (4:31 min Video)
Posted on 01/16/2012 9:47:59 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather
Juan Williams tried to pin Newt down over his poor kids should be janitors answer from some time ago, and tried to make it about race. Newt took the opportunity to own Williams over asking the question, and got a partial standing ovation for it in the end.

If after this debate anyone still supports Santorum or Perry they’re only hurting themselves.
Frank Luntz said Newt needs to take clips of his debate tonight and put them in positive ads to play across the nation!
Poor ole Juan. Wrong question to the wrong guy.
I hope Newt lubricated his response real good to minimize Juan’s pain.
It was beautiful. My wife had to calm me down I was cheering Newt near out of control. NOBODY owned Newt tonight - he owned the debate IMHO.
And forget Paul. That fruitcake needs to look into a good deal on a rest home.
I think Santorum hurt Romney tonight pinning him down early in the evening about felons voting and Perry hurt him saying he needs to release his tax records. Newt hurt him by just being Newt. LOL!!!!!!!!
Newt is made of awesome. You want to beat Obama, vote for Newt
And Juan, you might want to stew on this. When you die and Fox News plays tv clips summarizing your life, that exchange with Newt will be the highlight of your tv work.
“And forget Paul. That fruitcake needs to look into a good deal on a rest home.”
lol, best one yet.
One of the most awesome things I’ve ever seen in a presidential debate.
He has the civics of economic freedom in his bones. Liberals don’t. Rinos can not stun the snarky “smart” ones like Newt. Juan came away looking petty and stupid.
Americans, in the majority, would rather have their money through jobs to pay for their homes and food. The welfare mob Obama plays to, is a small sliver of society and Americans are not all that crazy about them nor about supporting them.
When I watch Ron Paul, a certain novelty song from Napoleon XIV comes to mind.
Mr. Newt won this hands down and if he does not win South Carolina...he cannot win anywhere!
Poor Juan doesn't know it, but he just chose the next President of the United States!
Very good! Knocked that one out of the park. Good job Newt!
I was alone watching the debate tonight and started yelling at the TV that we will NOT have our candidate selected for us by the GOP elite. So glad Newt did well again, and I hope he wins big in SC!
Mrs. Prince of Space
He always does.
Gingrich BLASTS Chris Wallace for his "Gotcha" Questions at IA Debate
Newt Gingrich: Super Committee Is Washington's Dumbest Idea
Gingrich: My Credential Is 4.2% Unemployment
that hard to describe quality that makes folks listen and figure he is to be reckoned with
however imperfect he is
just look at Romney and the panels’ faces
they knew...Newt had just hit a 90 mph fastball right outta the park over Juan's little head sailing past their own too where the audience and TV land grabbed it with gusto
I am almost an old man now...I can tell the kids here that men like Newt do not come along in American politics often
and yes...he is a strange cat and has his own demons
but he will take the fight to the enemy...no doubt about that
and as we have learned the Democrats are not our only problem...about 95% of public figures who claim to be conservative have placed themselves in the line of fire as not in our camp as we have always thought
no sir...they are pure moderates and media whores who would sell their momma for access
none have taken a stand against the FOX NEWS-Romney-NRO-WSJ juggernaut
not you Rush in particular hoss
Levin..a little bit
Sarah Palin...where are you honey..I thought you were a conservative...why so hesitant to attack Mitt?
and so forth
I am very happy..at least for tonight
And through it all, the late Ann Coulter has been tweeting snarky BS about Newt all night.
Perry was great tonight too, but I think Newt sewed it up. He was outstanding.
Yes! Time to back Newt!
Newt was on Greta one night early in his campaign and she asked him how it is going. He halted a moment and said it hurts to hear the things people say about him but he is fine. That was before they began attacking Newt vehemently with no letup. I have lost all respect for Fox news. I can say Eric Bolling seems decent and Greta wanted Newt to fight back against the ads but I have found many others to be willing to sell their souls for their agenda and I can never watch Fox again with the same respect. He is in for the fight of his life but at least he fights!
Another thing I noticed tonight. Newt and Perry are the only candidates with that fire in the belly. They also have that attitude that makes them real indignant when you diss their country.
Remember when Reagan and Bobby Kennedy were assailed by a bunch of students about Vietnam? Kennedy was all mealy mouthed and apologetic.
Reagan stood up and let them have it. Pointed out that if the USA was a warmonger wanting to conquer the world, we could have done it after World War II, and NO ONE could have stopped us. Then he schooled them on what we really stand for.

Is that right? Hmmm. How pathetic! Maybe she can get another night on Redeye to call Newt really really really crazy the next time and see if that helps her dud candidate.
BUMP and a half. ‘Juggernaut” no mo...
I think Romney got his hat and fanny handed to him tonight. I just can’t stand to listen to him..he stutters and stammers and will try to avoid answering the questions and tonight he didn’t get away with it.
I think Newt did a great job and I agree he should put these good answers in his ads, I think Perry did ok too for a change though I don’t think he will win..he did get a few hits..And Ron Paul...my goodness he goes on like a man ready for the rest home..his giggles and hysteria..while he does make some good points, he is just too flighty and hysterical..I cannot see him going up against 0bama..he would end up like chopped liver. And Santorum I don’t know...
Romeny got down in the mud first and now wonders why what goes around is coming around...
Caww, you’ll love this if you missed the debate...
Just watched the rerun of the debate...saw it the first time and was just as impressed.. I thine Newt hit it out of the park and I just wonder what the odds would be if Newt gets the nomination how likely it might be that he would select Perry as his VP? I think they think more alike than not..Maybe they could make a great team.
Very cool! Was it the Pointer Sisters that had a song that had something to do with Newtron something or other?
After debate analysis on TWITTER: “Mitt Romney spent most of the night BELOW THE LINE! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!” MESSAGE TO ANN COULTER: “YOU CAN’T TWEET AWAY YOUR TWIT.”
Juan knows Newt and is a friend... I believe he set up a pitch for Newt to hit it out of the park. Thank you Juan.
If after this debate anyone still supports Santorum or Perry theyre only hurting themselves.
I don't know what it is about Santorum, but he reminds me of a whiny, little weasel.
As for Perry, he had his best debate so far (IMHO) and other than Newt, he is the only one who was the least big aggressive, which is the kind of candidate we need who is not going to be a mealy-mouthed WUSS, like Mittens, who continues to REFUSE to admit that Dear Leader's policies and programs as intentionally designed to harm this country.
HOW ANY CONSERVATIVE can possible support Romney is beyond me and I'm perplexed on how he continues to lead in the polls.
I give the edge to this debate to my guy Mr. Newt.
Great post—thank you!
Newt may say some weird things once in a while, but if you give him 30 seconds he can convince you that he was right all along. Nobody, not even Rush, can give such clear concise answers in so few words to such obviously loaded questions. I would pay $1000 for a pay per view debate between Obama and Newt.
did you watch the clip
Juan: “...Can’t you see this is insulting to americans and especially black americans?”
Newt: “No... I don’t see that”
That was so great - no mincing words, no backtracking, no acceptance of his premise.
That was right out of the ballpark.
Tells me Juan is not at all the "libtard" many think he is.
Yes I did, but I take into consideration Juan and his relationship with Newt through FOX news. He soft served Newt and served as the Dem foil. This is all political theater.
I Loved IT! But, unfortunately, you never know which Newt shows up or what it says.
If that was a set up, then Juan must be a really good friend to Newt for allowing Newt the opportunity to make Juan Williams look like a petty vindictive race baiter. The reason I don't believe what you are saying is because Juan tried to interrupt Gingrich and debate him during his brilliant answer to the stupid question, but Gingrich just kept talking over him.
No, Juan, like everyone else on Fox, was trying to destroy Newt. Whenever that happens it seems that Newt always turns the tables.
Was Ron Paul (Pot) high? High on pot? You don’t call him Ron Paul (Pot) for nothing.
Juan was delighted on the after debate commentary regarding this interchange. You have it wrong FRiend.
Geez buddy, don’t hold back. Tell us what you REALLY think! lol
This is the kind of speaking we are going to need to beat Obama.
