Posted on 09/02/2012 9:06:52 PM PDT by cdchik123
Im frankly, fed up, with the one-sided bias, a frustrated Newt Gingrich asserted on Sundays Meet the Press, citing two blatant examples. First: Where is the outrage over overt, deliberate racism in Vice President Joe Biden telling a black audience if the Republicans win you will be in chains?
Second, President Obama voted three times to protect the right of doctors to kill babies who came out of abortion still alive. That plank says tax-paid abortion at any moment, meaning partial birth abortion -- thats a 20 percent issue, a position which Democrats couldnt defend...for a day if it was made clear and as vivid as all the effort is made to paint Republicans.
Gingrich charged: If the news media spent as much time on the extremism of the Democrats as they spend trying to attack us, they would not be able to adopt that plank this week. Another guest panelist, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, declared Im a Planned Parenthood Democrat on the issue of choice, but when Gingrich challenged him to defend the Democratic Party platform support for taxpayer funding of late-term and partial-birth abortion, Friedman called it a defensible position, then suddenly decided Im here as a journalist, Ill let the Democratic Party defend it.
Seconds earlier during the roundtable, NBC News eminence Tom Brokaw maintained Republican opposition to abortion is antithetical to full rights for women. I think this is the century of women, he asserted before fretting there is even among some Republican women out there the view that the party doesnt quite buy into that yet. He contended the social issues are very important to women. Its their bodies, their lives, they feel that its not entirely embraced by the Republican Party. Thats my own judgment.
From the September 2 Meet the Press:

“his political party enshrines the bizarre position into its platform and stands a good chance of being reelected.”
I agree whole heartedly with your condemnation of infanticide. And your cautionary note is something that has long troubled me. But one must also remember that Obama’s decisive election victory in 2008 was achieved on a campaign theme of “a fundamentally transformation of America” (exact words)! If 2008 demonstrated anything, it was the validity of a remark by H.L. Mencken that it’s impossibility to conceive of some limit to their stupidity.
I agree. I read his profile. Shaking head.
Well, Democrats voted for a guy that supports abortion after birth. They really don’t give shit about Life.
How so very childish...and so like a Democrat. That is as low as I can go in name calling.
really don’t give a ...
if you don’t want a baby, don’t make a baby
you don’t have a right to KILL a baby!
abortions from ‘reported’ rape is less than 2% of abortions
Gingrich: “ so you think its acceptable to have a party committed to tax-paid abortion in the eighth and ninth month?”
Friedman: “Yeah, I do believe thats a defensible position ...........”
Translation: “it’s a pro-choice nine month old fetus”
You and people like you are the very reason we have trouble getting good conservatives to run for office.
We eat our own.
You should be ashamed.
I understnd your point. I wish you would beable to undertand mine. Just being a woman means one is at risk all the time. I’ll never forget what a close call I had once when I lived in L.A. - I had a toothache and got up at 4 am to take a pill - got a weird feeling - went into my living room - a man had come in the window. It was summer and I was just in underwear. I knew that he was going to jump me in the next second and it would be all over. I bent my knees (thank you, Carlos Casteneda) and let out a scream that woke the neighborhood. The guy left. The police came. I couldn’t have used a gun at that moment - I was too groggy. The scream worked. That time. But you have no idea how often random men - bus drivers, cab drivers, a neighbor...turn into predators out of nowhere. We can’t go around shooting everyone.
I believe you. The whole rape abortion thing is bogus. I was responding to something else.
“The President of the United States enthusiastically supports the barbaric killing of innocent human life, his political party enshrines the bizarre position into its platform and stands a good chance of being reelected. “
You know, if this continues how can America survive? We are inviting our own destruction.
Mother Teresa once said: “The fruit of mass abortion is nuclear war.”
Here that, ladies? The social issue of your century is... infanticide!
It would be funny at first, then go to anger over the fact that the moron in the White House has been considered the leader of the free world, then it would change to pity as you watched a defenseless child get his a** handed to him. The whole while stuttering and stammering, searching for his beloved teleprompter hoping to find an answer.
But, in the end it would still be funny.
Good for Newt. He has a great way of stating the truth and disrupting the lies of liberals. That is why so many of us here thought he might be a good candidate.
Now he can at least do some damage on the talk shows.
You’re an idiot.
I’ve met Callista and seen the special relationship she has with Newt. As a lifelong Catholic, Callista was instrumental in her husband’s conversion to that faith in 2009. She is much different from Newt’s first wife, Jackie Battley, his high school Geometry teacher. That marriage began on the wrong step when Newt was 19 (she was 26) and collapsed after 20 years. In 2011 their daughter, Jackie Gingrich Cushman, remembers that it was her mother who requested the divorce, that it happened prior to the hospital stay, and that Gingrich’s visit was for the purpose of bringing the couple’s children to see their mother, not to discuss the divorce.
Marianne Ginther, Newt’s second wife, was a willing participant in a six year affair with Gingrich while he was married to his first wife. I believe the marriage fell apart when Marianne became involved in an arms sting by meeting an arms dealer in Paris. That kind of publicity was not the kind Newt wanted in his political career. Their marriage lasted 18 years.
Part of the book was establishing a government agency regulating carbon credits, like the EPA wasn't causing enough damage.
He also was pushing for national healthcare with Hillary Clinton.
For cryin out loud, his PH.D thesis was on Belgian Education Policy in the Congo, 1945-1960.
Just don't be shocked when he goes liberal. Again.
Newt is a great American and Patriot. You? You’re just an internet troll. You’re a pissant little nothing in other words. Don’t ever forget that pissant.
