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:

I have heard that Newt has got another eco book on the way
Rape doesn’t have a damn thing to do with it, and everybody knows it.
“Rape” is the scarecrow of the killing fields.
Newt is just amazing in the way he holds liberals accountable to the full logical extent of their positions. Most other people let liberals recite a nice-sounding principle and get away with it. Newt forces them to answer to the reality that principle logically implies which totally undermines them.
Like I’ve said before, Newt must be the least effective “liberal” of all time, since when he took over the House, the entire government including Bill Clinton shifted rightward. He got federal spending as a percentage of GDP down lower than it was under Reagan.
If we carry a weapon, no really means NO. And it means no even if a potential attacker is armed, too. The attacker will go on his way looking for an easier target. That's why today's fathers should take the old settler approach and teach their daughters about weapons as early as possible and not confine the lessons just to their sons.
Our problem though, is that a lot of daughters these days don't have fathers because families have been destroyed by government. Funny how the Democrat Party claims to be the party of women's rights while constantly fighting to prevent women [and men too] from legally arming themselves so they can assert their own rights.
Liberals don't want people to be able to do anything for themselves, and certainly don't want women to be able to deter rapists. They want to keep everyone in fear so people will cling to the false promises of government protection and the fallback of an abortion when government fails.
The Republicans embrace the fact that women only need physical strength in their trigger fingers.
God will remember the 50 MILLION DEAD ABORTED BABIES. Entire civilization have disappeared for less.
He has done more to advance the cause of conservatism than you will ever do. Just what are your contributions lately? Carping and complaining doesn’t count...
Romney needs to put Gingrich as “the” administrative spokesman
The leftard womyn scream “keep your laws off our bodies!” Yet at the same time they celebrate Obamacare, which is a gov’t confiscation of all of our physical beings. Obamacare gives any President the power to appoint anyone they want to the board that approves medical procedures. As a result the government can ban abortion with the stroke of a pen. All it takes is for the political worm to turn....
Idiot leftard womyn celebrate the legislative tool to kill abortion, while accusing Repubs of wanting to pass paws that can be used to kill abortion! Morons indeed.
Stopped reading right there.
No kidding......NO GOOD can come out of 50 MILLION DEAD BABIES, KILLED at the hands of their MOTHERS.
He has more values than you have abilities to make relevant statements.
Unfortunately in America you do have the right to kill the baby.
I totally disagree. There is no such right of taking someone else’s life.
Can a woman get an abortion legally in America today?
Dream for a moment and picture him as White House Press Secretary next term. I know it would be beneath him but wouldn’t he be stellar in that capacity? :)
“legal” and right are two very different things.
I never said it was “right”, I said it was a right and it is.
You don’t know conservatism from liberalism - and your comment just proved it. You are type that should be barred from voting. You can’t even stay focused on what the article is about! America is being destroyed because of such ignorance - consider yourself responsible.
