Skip to comments.Gingrich Rips David Gregory For Making Limbaugh 'The great national crisis of this week'

With all that ails the nation, Meet the Press host David Gregory actually began his interview with Newt Gingrich by asking him about contraceptives and Rush Limbaugh.
"This is the most fundamental assault on religious liberty in American history despite every effort by the elite media to distort what it's about. It's not about contraceptives... It is about whether a religious institution should be coarsed by the federal government."
"Should the President apologize to all the men and women in uniform who he in fact abandoned when he apologized to religious fanatics in Afghanistan." (snip)

The segment began with Gregory introducing this subject by playing a video clip of Limbaugh's comments regarding Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke followed by reading the conservative talk radio host's apology.
After his opening admonishment, Gingrich said, "There is no debate about access to contraception. There is a debate, which Cardinal George of Chicago has pointed out, is a war against the Catholic Church.
You do have this weird situation where President Obama apologizes to Islamic extremists while waging war against the Catholic Church."
"Barack Obama as President," Gingrich continued, "in the most radical anti-religious move made by any president, is trying to coerce the Catholic Church at a time when he's been told by the bishops they would have to give up every single hospital...they would have to give up every single university and college associated with the church, because he is asking them to violate their religious beliefs."
Not surprisingly, Gregory ignored that question and continued with the contraception issue asking, "Can you appreciate the view of those that disagree with you that this is an attack on women's rights? That's their view, reproductive rights, access to contraception, and the extreme that it's some sort of war on women."
Gingrich correctly replied, "Nobody's blocking anyone from having access to contraception. No one. The young lady who testified can get access to contraception. Nobody said she couldn't. The question is should a Catholic institution, or for that matter, the Ohio Christian University which is a Protestant institution, which is a very pro-Life institution, which is now being told it will have to pay for abortion pills.
Cannot STAND that asshole David Gregory. I met him one in a Cosco. What a pussy.
The same link from above did not format properly. Watch this video, Gregory was seriously outclassed again!
It amazes me that so many refuse to accept that Newt will straighten this mess out.
Limbaugh is a diversion and Newt correctly called them on it.
Newt was great on Meet the Press. Had me laughing as the Ape Man vainly tried to keep him on Ape point!
Wish he had a chance, but don’t think so at this point.
Maybe others will learn, even if Romney doesn't.
Lol. Go Newt! :D
It’s all they got. Obama is a commie, partisan POS who can’t run on his radical record. So, all they have is demonize the enemy. Whoever our nominee is, they’d better be prepared to fight hard, take no prisoners and be sure to get a daily anti-obama sound byte on the local evening news. To hell with the MSM. Ignore them and fight through the internet, blogs and talk radio.
You can bet the "in-the-tank-for-Obama" media whores will never play these two clips of Rush. bttt
He's a spider strangled by his own web.
I imagine his show today, will have a record audience, and all the sponsors who pulled out got caught with their Liberal pants down.
Rush does have a solid defense, but the Leftist courts won’t see it that way.
The Catholic Church, as well as others need to stand up against the Islamic attack against Christians. To me, it’s simply an attack to get back at Catholics for the Crusades. Maybe the Crusaders need to return and put these people back to the 7th Century?
or for that matter, why should anyone be forced by government to pay for someone else's contraception. We should have the right to choose to NOT pay for it.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
I love it when Newt makes mincemeat out of Baboon Face.
But then is it really fair for Gingrich to engage in a battle of wits with Gregory, since Gregory—clueless leftist twit that he is—is basically disarmed?
We can only hope at this point. If not, this will be the greatest mistake this party has ever made!
