Newt Slams John King: No One In "Elite Media" Asked Obama About Infanticide
Real Clear Politics ^ | 2/22/2012 | Anonymous

Posted on 02/22/2012 8:26:58 PM PST by katiedidit1

Newt Gingrich took debate moderator John King to task for asking the candidates about contraception.

Gingrich said King and the rest of the "elite media" did not bother to ask the 2008 Democratic candidates about "infanticide."

Newt was a master tonight. He went straight after Obama which is exactly what I want out of a presidential candidate.

This line of questioning should be the norm, not the exception. Put the interviewer on the defensive. Make them think twice before persuing a tangential issue.

Thanks for posting as I could not see the debate.

Newt knows when to pounce.

He looked much more at ease now that Santorum is taking most of the incoming from Mitt and Mitt’s lil buddy from Mars.

Just like the Marxist John King to twist the “Freedom of Conscience” to the right to have contraception. There is NO call for any denial of contraception rights so WHY would they bring that up....

Government should NOT be in the business of medicine or death panels....it is all unconstitutional. We need to get government out of practicing medicine and education so we don’t have such idiots as John King. We need people who can think and reason.

We need to get back to the fundamental meaning of the Constitution and kick out Judges who do not do what their oaths demand them to do.

Good job, Newt. Keep it up. This unending microscopic scrutiny that anyone with an “R” after their names gets, while the Anointed Liar in the White Hut gets a free pass 24/7, is absolutely sickening and has to stop.

Infanticide is certainly an issue that we need to use to keep Obama's feet to the fire!

What a disgusting piece of work!

I really, REALLY want Newt Gingrich to be the Republican candidate this fall.

But more than that, I want BHO2 out of the White House. He is truly evil.

I do not believe that Santorum or Romney are evil, and though I do not consider either as capable of being President as Newt Gingrich, replacing that awful Marxist-Leninist presently in the White House is more important than any one person. Let the American people decide who will be President this coming fall.

Go Newt!

With admirable efficiency, he hit the media and Obama simultaneously.
I hope he continues to use that line of attack. Most people haven’t a clue just how bad Obama is on the issue of life.

When Newt pounced on that question, I thought, there he said it for all, there isn’t any reason for the others to even comment on it. Then Romney had to have his say and drew Santorum into the mix. Newt, the smart one, just sat back and let them destroy themselves.

Newt should really gain after tonight's debate. Very presidential with a can and will do attitude. With Santormum's implosion, I hope his backers will go to Newt. If Paul and Santotum's people can rally around Newt now. . . Romney can be defeated.

I also want Newt to be the Republican candidate.

He has baggage, but biblically, we could have some writing in the sand and ALL of the candidates wouldn't be able to measure up, or the voters, for that matter.

I am all for a person that has learned from their past and goes forward with truth and conviction.

It's a media spin that women wouldn't vote for a man that has had prior affairs. Women tend to be very forgiving of a repentent man.

This is why Gingrich is so much better a candidate then Santorum.

I compare them to running backs.

Santorum will hit the hole just as the play is designed, no matter what. You can count on it. No fumbles.

Doesn't matter if the hole is filled by two linebackers and a defensive end, he's going at that spot as hard and fast as he can.

Gingrich will hit the hole when it's open. When it's not he's looking for daylight. Sometimes he fumbles. Sometimes he looses 4 yards. In half his games he's over 100 yds and over 1500 yds per season. 20 touchdowns. 7 fumbles.

The MSM are quite accustomed to never being questioned as to their motives and agenda. RINOs will never go there. It takes the intellect of a Newt to go after them so well.

Tony Snow could and did slap them around, but that was in the WH press room, not on the national stage.

They actualy are masking their advice to the government to attack CAtholics and doctors under the guise that they deny the "Civil Right" of contraception.

Might as well throw in my two cents, FWIW.

I can certainly be enthusiastic about either Rick or Newt, but this past week has shown that Newt is much more capable of campaigning strong in today’s media climate and this election in particular.

Which is exactly why, if Newt is the Republican nominee, there won't be any debates.

The eventual Republican nominee has got to be good at something besides debates.

That doesn't disqualify Newt -- but it should give everybody who's counting on Newt simply because he could wax Obama in a debate pause.

Keep that in mind. If Newt is the GOP nominee, there will be no presidential debates!

Newt is excellent on solutions from energy to reforming civil service and making their pay compatible with the private sector, to education, the borders, the middle east and having Jeruselem as the capitol of Israel and dealing with Iran, education, etc. There is no contest between the other candidates and Newt when it comes to solving or turning around the problems we deal with..check out Newt.org

I really miss Tony. God bless him. It would be great to have another like him as the WH Press Sec. He was a solid conservative and came up through the press ranks so he really understood the mindset of the enemy. He always seemed up, positive and ready. He parried and thrust with a smile and kept those baying dogs chasing their own tails. Good man and I look forward to seeing him again someday.

I don’t think there is any law that says he must debate anyone. He certainly would refuse Newt.

Debates will be unavoidable. at least a couple. Obama will work hard to format them in the least damaging way. And of course he will have his questions written and submitted to the whorehouse press ahead of time.

The liberal media is already in uproar over the word Newt used to describe what Obama voted for: “infanticide”, but that’s the EXACT word.

When a doctor kills a viable new born baby, he is committing a crime of infanticide.

“In 1997, Obama voted against SB 230, which would have turned doctors into felons by banning so-called partial-birth abortion, and against a 2000 bill banning state funding. Although these bills included an exception to save the life of the mother, they didn’t include anything about abortions necessary to protect the health of the mother. The legislation defined a fetus as a person, and could have criminalized virtually all abortion.”

Source: The Improbable Quest, by John K. Wilson, p.147-148 Oct 30, 2007

“Obama has consistently refused to support legislation that would define an infant who survives a late-term induced-labor abortion as a human being with the right to live. He insists that no restriction must ever be placed on the right of a mother to decide to abort her child.

On March 30, 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator who rose to speak against a bill that would have protected babies who survived late term labor-induced abortion.

Obama rose to object that if the bill passed, and a nine-month-old fetus survived a late-term labor-induced abortion was deemed to be a person who had a right to live, then the law would “forbid abortions to take place.”

Obama further explained the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not allow somebody to kill a child, so if the law deemed a child who survived a late-term labor-induced abortion had a right to live, “then this would be an anti-abortion statute.”

Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.238 Aug 1, 2008

As State senator of Illinois, Obama practically voted against banning partial birth abortion.
Obama’s record in Illinois represents that of a pragmatic progressive, who pushed for moderate reforms and opposed right-wing legislation. In the IL legislature, voting “present” is the equivalent of voting “no” because a majority of “yes” votes are required for passage.

Obama was rated 100% by NARAL on pro-choice votes in 2005, 2006 and 2007.

That is a simple fact of biology and a centuries old legal term of art. To kill an infant is called infanticide.

I went to Newt’s FB site and to Romneys...Newt has MORE supporters than Mitt! surfed around some conservative fb sites..all pro Newt but never hear about it in the media. Drudge had Ann “the “Adam’s apple “ Coulter with her trickle down slime wondering why the media other than Faux News does not rally behind her man Mitt.

Here are the excerpt of the transcript:

KING: Since birth control is the latest hot topic, which candidate believes in birth control, and if not, why? As you can see — it’s a — it’s a very popular question in the audience, as we can see. Look, we’re not going to spend a ton of time on this but it is — please.

GINGRICH: Can I just make a point? The first is there is a legitimate question about the power of the government to impose on religion activities which any religion opposes. That’s legitimate.

But I just want to point out, you did not once in the 2008 campaign, not once did anybody in the elite media ask why Barack Obama voted in favor of legalizing infanticide.
OK? So let’s be clear here.

If we’re going to have a debate about who the extremist is on these issues, it is President Obama who, as a state senator, voted to protect doctors who killed babies who survived the abortion. It is not the Republicans.

“I do not believe that Santorum or Romney are evil, and though I do not consider either as capable of being President as Newt Gingrich, replacing that awful Marxist-Leninist presently in the White House is more important than any one person. Let the American people decide who will be President this coming fall.”

Right On! The fact that Romney and Santorum have the numbers they do simply shows the intellectual deficit most people have. Romney is about as evil as Obama and Santorum even manages to get Catholic priests to say he’s on the lunatic fringe vis-a-vis his religious prattling. I don’t see either as anything more than play it safe, don’t rock the boat, caretakers. If Gingrich would really do what he says, we would see some remarkable change for the better.

50% of the people could care less or even don’t want Obama debating with a person like Newt for obvious reasons. I don’t recall the Obama vs McCain debates very well but what I do recall is that Obama would not have a patsy if Newt were in the debate.
