The show aired for many years on CNN before being stopped in 2005 after it was criticized by “The Daily Show” host Jon Stewart. But new CNN boss Jeff Zucker has advocated bringing it back.

Wow. Interesting that Gingrish and Cupp would be on board for this flogging.

Other than being found “relevant” according to the media, they will ultimately be diminished in the eyes of the LIVs.

Too bad.

The House vote might be cancelled because Bonehead doesn’t want to embarrass the Prez

Yep. Newt and Cupp are not perfect conservatives, not by a long shot. But neither are they wishy-washy Boehner types.

And thanks for the heads up. I'm going to set my DVR for it now.

Boehner needs to resign in shame or be honest and switch parties.

If Boner cancels the vote, 0bama will argue that this gives him the right to attack.

Yes, of course. Boehner would fall on his face and agree.

I guess Newt is getting desperate for publicity. All he will do is provide a platform that will allow leftists to lob more missiles at him.

“CrossFire” was a great show when Pat Buchanan and Robert Novak were on it. Carville and Begala ruined it. S.E. Cupp can be provocative and interesting, but mainly she’s put on to be eye candy to draw in some male viewers.

Yup, CNN had Crossfire, MSNBC had “Equal Time” with Oliver North and Begala and Fox had “Hannity and Colmes”.

Cutter and Jones are intellectually vacant. They’ll be easy pickings for Newt and Cupp.

Not a fan of giving Van Jones more media face time.

He is radical. And he is smart.
A formidable opponent.

Not just that- but that is a great point - Jones will toss the race card and because Newt wants an income, he’ll not be quite the Newt we want on the show and they 4 of them will act like budies...just watch, I’ll be right.

I can’t imagine two people more politically apart than Gingrich and Van Jones.

Cupp is loathsome and this is really funny.

The very last Glenn Beck show I ever listened to featured Beck and SE Cupp yucking it up about how stupid Newt is. Beck called him “dumber than a shoehorn” and Cupp said “the thing most people forget is that Newt is a truly awful person.”

That show will go no where with 10 boobs on it.

SE Cupp displaying cleavage wil be the highlight of the show.

Why have an avowed Marxist (in a suit) on “Crossfire”? Isn’t there a less smirky marxist they could have hired, such as Lawrence O’Donnell or Katrina van den Heuvel?

Cupp ain’t what she used to be.
Neither if Newt.

A waste of time for the non-brain addled viewers.

>>... Newt wants an income<<

Isn’t it what all TV personality wants? I wonder if you’ll have more respect for him if he didn’t need to work for an income.

No stupid. You know what I mean no need to be obtuse. I you chose to think you’d conclude it would be nice to see Newt go for blood; but insteado shows like this paint everyone having a beer together in some beltway bar. I want him to embarrass Jones...I trust you dotoo. So how about a little less vitriolic pal to one of your conservative brethren, eh?

"but insteado shows like this paint everyone having a beer together in some beltway bar."

Very clever and nice of you to adjust what you said earlier.

"I want him to embarrass Jones...I trust you dotoo"

I already know he will; and I have no plan nor time to watch the show.

"So how about a little less vitriolic ...

... to the one you purportedly support. As for myself, I don't mind at all vitriol coming form one of my conservative brethren. In fact, I give you my word you will have the last word.

Not having a vote is actually a very smart move. Obama is still on the hook. Everyone knows Obama will not attack Syria or anyone.

The man is a coward. Putin the world, everyone knows this.Why give him the same out CAmeron got?

The president doesn’t need he authority to take action, and Obama if we all recall was poised to take action..but the Brits backed down... and

I think Putin sent a message just like Kennedy did to Kruchiev at the Bay of Pigs, to back off.

And Obama backed off, and now wishes to hide behind Congress.

Obama also is leaving Russia as a failure. Only he doesn’t know this. It is shamefull to see an American president a coward on a world scale.

I also came to the same conclusion you did, that there won’t be a strike on Syria after all.

obama initially thought Syria would be a repeat of Libya; but when Putin ordered his warships to move into position, the coward was really scared and for the first time realized he could be starting a WAR. He got the message from Putin even before he set foot on Russia; and when the pro and the amateur finally met, all Putin did to seal it was to remind obama Russia has proof that the rebels did it.

Not voting on it is indeed a smart move, but don’t give any credit to the GOP. As was already reported, their intention was to save obama from a landslide defeat in the House, not to leave him on his own. Remember both Boehner and Cantor wasted no time in coming out to support the strike.

If David Cameron were to get caught in a major scandal, will we think less of Great Britain? Of course not. Obama may be the president, but he is not America. Since he has greatly diminished America both economically and militarily while Iran joins the nuclear club, he shouldn’t get any respect at home or abroad. I actually relish the thought of obama becoming a laughingstock of the whole world.
