Greg Hengler - "I wish Ann Curry had the same umpf, passion, and tenacity when interviewing liberals and Democrats. Geez."
Below is my dictation of the interview of Ann Curry questioning Newt Gingrich after reading the propaganda NYT editorial.
Curry - Are you intentionally playing the race card to win votes?
Gingrich - You know modern liberals are just, I think frankly, are totally off the deep end. I went to the Martin Luther King Jr. breakfast Monday morning with the Republican Congressman who is an African-American Tim Scott. We talked about the corridor of shame, which president Obama campaigned in South Carolina has done nothing for. I outlined a planned to build an I -73 corridor from a corridor of shame into a corridor of hope...
Curry interjects -- I'm asking you Newt Gingrich, I'm asking you Newt Gingrich the nature you are characterizing president Obama as a food stamp president?
Gingrich - I'm trying to make a point to you which is, when conservatives care about the poor, and conservatives offer ideas about to help the poor, and conservatives suggest that the poor would rather have a paycheck than a food stamp, the very liberals who have failed them at places, like places like the New York Times promptly scream racism because they have no defense for the failure of liberal institutions, which have trapped poor children in bad schools and have trapped them in bad neighborhoods. Liberal solutions have failed.
Curry - Alright lets move on. Back in 1995, your X-wife Marianne told Vanity Fair that she could derail your campaign with one TV interview. Tonight she is giving that interview.
Is there anything that she could say, Newt Gingrich, that could end your campaign?
Gingrich - I'm not going to say anything negative about Marianne. My two daughters Cathy and Jackie have sent a letter to the president of ABC News saying from a family perspective this thing is totally wrong...
Curry - Is your X-wife someone that you think that people should see as credible on your character?
See the rest of the video here.
Oh, any errors in the transcription of the interview is likely mine. ;-)
this is the way to handle this, turn it around on Obama!
Don't attack your X Gingrich, just stick with the fact that you have already address this issue in the past and that you made mistakes in the past and have sought forgiveness from God and moved on.
Here are some Obozo “failures” for you:
Well played by Newt.
“...made mistakes in the past and have sought forgiveness from God and moved on...”
Just like everyone else on earth
What’s with Townhall and the “unload” comment? Newt did not unload. Newt calmly and intellectually took her apart.
C’mon Townhall. You’re better than that.
“Curry - Is your X-wife someone that you think that people should see as credible on your character?”
This is certainly a new standard. The Ex should speak glowingly about you, or you are disqualified! Got it.
Of course, Obama can travel to Pakistan, on Saudi money, be a closet homo, marxist, Muslim, who never really lived in America before age 10, or visited the mainland before college,,,,be close friends with weatehr underground murderers,,
And thats just hunky dory.
I wish the rest of the mealy-mouthed candidates were as forceful pushing back at the liberal meme as Newt.
I still say Drudge forced ABCs hand on this, the last thing they wanted was to be dribbling this story out piecemeal vs. having a big blockbuster in prime time.
And if anyone believes ABC was having a debate over ethics, I’ve got a bridge to sell you ;-)
Isn't this just the type of thing you would want to task your daughters with, or even have them do it on their own.
Look Newt, you're talking to a guy that should have a great deal of sympathy with your 'former bitter wife' defense here. Sadly, you are a guy who cheated on his two former wives, so it gets a little more difficult to ignore some things your former wife might say.
Whose fault is that Newt? You were a man with very little moral fiber in those days. When I see you be unfaithful to Conservatism by sitting on a couch with Nancy Pelosi, it doesn't instill faith that you have strong moral fiber today as it relates to Conservatism. When you make join appearances with other Democrats, it doesn't help.
Thank you for the video.
I can’t wait for Newt to knock both willard and bambi on their asses.
Try to visualize ABC news interviewing Obama with this style and confrontation and negativity.
You can’t. It’s not possible.
Newt always...I REPEAT ALWAYS...turns these things around to an advantage for him.
I’m hoping he does again if asked tonight. Don’t attack your Ex...that’s a no win situation. Let them say what they want. Unless three other women come forth and say they took place in a four some with Marianne and him...just shut up...
And, actually even if that happens... SO WHAT! At least the guy is not gay..and secondly, has been happily married now.
We’re a different country than we were before Kennedy’s assasination and Viet Nam. The me generation has messed things up for all of us...
But it’s all good.... that’s right folks... in the end it’s all good.
Sticking with the open marriage theme, we can only wonder if Obama’s homosexual escapades count. If the Obama regime has anything to do with this soap opera, Obama should voice his thoughts on his mother’s sexual exploits with a married couple.
The media might want to look back on the open marriage days of Kennedy and Clinton, and then ask themselves why they never complimented W on his faithful marriage.
I don’t care about Newt’s past indiscretions. We have a constitutional republic to save while we can.
1)turn it back on Obama’s failures.
2)Turn it back on the medias unwillingness to question Obama.
3)Give solution how to fix things.
I'm sure ABC, as well as the rest of the MSM, are lock step in their support for Mr. Obama, however there may have an internal debate as to whether pushing this story would help or harm their cause.
You keep throwing tantrums and you will lose the nomination/general election.
[I just hope, if Gingrich does get the nomination, that he will only have one foot in his mouth at a time.]
How many newsmen have had affairs? - I'd like to know ... Inquiring minds and all... Any at ABC? Any bitter ex-wives out there ready to talk to the internet? Someone knows something - let's call 'em out.
What was Obama doing in 1995?
